Ron Paul will not seek re-election

I hate to be the Paul-bearer of bad news for some of you, but

That's too bad. He's a pretty good guy to have in the House, if not the Presidency.

I know he says here he wants to focus on one election. ( I don't see how he could run for both. I'd rather keep in the House during this crisis.) But I have to still wonder if the Texas GOP restricting, of just his district, has played some part in his decision? I read months ago they were redistricting to fill his constituents up with unions folks and minorities to try to unseat him. I suspect the general GOP wanted it too. They have tried in the past to unseat him with big money and candidates. Plus Perry is an insider so I suspect he helped. Then again, I read this months ago and I don't know what happened to it.

I have often thought a better track for him to gain traction nationally would have been as a governor. If he ran a state and could put some of his ideas in place (and they worked), he would be a lot harder to be ignored. Especially in a huge state like Texas.

The Texas GOP is going to redistrict a reliable GOP seat so they can elect a Dem? I admit I am assuming that is what you meant by adding union members and minorities to his district.

If I am wrong I apologize.

I've asked this a million times and still haven't recieved an answer. What makes this guy different than any other politician that promises alot and does deliver when push comes to shove. You guys do remember Obama's campaign right? I mean it won a marketing award, you have to remember it and look at us now.

I'll be honest, I like the guy, but anyone who has been in Congress for 24 years has got to go. I don't care what they stand for, that's way too long.

Term limits are not a solution. Especially, when you have a guy who consistently votes as she says he will and supports the Constititution—these qualities are much better than how long someone has been in. I would take full House like this than one that continually re-supplies with more ignoramuses and anti-Constitutionalists. But that's me.

Don't forget there was a long interruption in his service at one time too. It's not like it was continuous for that whole period.

Well, they were last I read which was a few months ago. I don't know if they actually followed through on it. But yeah, that's what I read. Don't forget GOP leadership isn't conservative, libertarian nor are they really for small govt. Look at both Bushes and Bob Dole who actually was advising members of congress to vote for Obamacare or govt in more healthcare.

As a matter of fact, I found out yesterday that Bachmann campaigned for Jimmy Carter and not Ronald Reagan. Not to mention how she prosecuted citizens for the IRS.

Well, when you think about what his passion is, Congress is right for him. President to him is supposed to be a weaker branch under the Constitution and it's the Federal govt that is the bigger problem to a Constitutionalist. In Congress, he at least gets to be on the Financial Services Committee, Joint Economic Committee, and now he is Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy. I believe he was denied chairmanships before because of his stands.

I never said anything about term limits. I just said 24 years is too long.
