Ron Paul didn't get out of the race until after the GOP convention. The poor deluded souls that think it was earlier than that became the soft-minded
prey of the MSM propaganda machine. Also, Paul said all along that he had no plans for a third-party run, though his wording left the possibility of
doing so open-ended. By time of the convention there was a good Libertarian team in place and a full slate of third-parties the MSM was by that time
pushing in order to dilute their viability. His only real shot at the WH was as the Republican candidate, though starting in Iowa there was foul play
working against his run as it appears he actually won that state to begin with, and accurate reporting of that would have changed the whole complexion
of the primaries.
Is the insinuation of this thread that Ron Paul deliberately sand-bagged his candidacy to further the GOP agenda to put Mitt in the top slot and/or
bring about an end to any chance of having a viable liberty movement? Wow, hook, line, and sinker. Give those MSM folks a raise.
I believe the GOP is now having to do a bit of soul-searching, ostensibly to try to find if there is
any soul among them. I believe if there
was a lesson learned by the guiding powers it is that people are demanding a choice that promotes fiscal responsibility along with personal liberty
and self-responsibility and not at the expense of imposing restrictive pseudo-moral imperatives under threat of punishment. In other words, people
want the choice of electing an American society to operate without the added expense, burden, and restriction of the training-wheels.
