Ron Paul will not seek re-election

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

Okay well, I just googled and apparently the Texas GOP attempting it to the whole state to get more Rs in congress but it does destroy Paul's district with more union members and minorities at the same time. I think that looks like a way to get rid of him. BTW this was not the original news report that I read. This one has more info in it and it says it would take several months to determine final results. The date is June 3.



Quote:

Paul, a 2008 and 2012 Republican presidential hopeful, would pick up about 300,000 new voters in the map that the Texas Senate Redistricting Committee is going to consider. It could expose Paul to a spirited primary challenge while placing him in a district with more ethnic minorities and union members.

Democratic operative Jeff Crosby, who has tried unsuccessfully to help candidates beat the longtime incumbent, believes the change is intended to target Paul.

"This is clearly a shot taken by the Republican establishment against the hero of the Tea Party," Crosby said. "By giving him more than 300,000 new voters, it's clear the Republican establishment doesn't want Ron Paul to come back after he finishes his race for president." Under a law originally designed to help Lyndon Johnson, Paul can run for Congress and president at the same time — as he did in 2008.

Yeah, true....but that usually is the reason term limits get pushed. The professional politician so to speak. ( although Paul has practiced medicine while being in office too.) So that's why I thought that. I seemed implied. My point still stands, though, as to my preference.

This is a good move since he's going to get elected POTUS. According to the latest polls, he only trails Romney 33%-7%.

Announced as HOT News over at Lews!

Ron Paul, the amazing and principled politician, is not running for Congress again. It's the end of an era, but the beginning of a new one.

But why is Ron not running, after finally getting a little of what he is due with his monetary committee? He has been thinking about this for some time, and wants to concentrate on the presidential campaign and future and enhanced educational efforts that will blow your socks off.

Also, he has had it--to name just a few items--with: twice weekly groping by the TSA (since he has metal knees and is selected for the full feel-up every time); dealing with the crooks and creeps in Congress, especially in the rotten Texas delegation; and the deadly new district the Republicans have placed him in.

There are sad aspects to this, of course. He has been the greatest congressman in American history, by many leagues. But I predict that he will have even-more and even-more-lasting influence as he uses his moral authority for teaching freedom, peace, and Austrian economics outside of politics. More later.

UPDATE According to Politico, under a deliberately ugly photo of Ron, it is "All or Nothing" now for Ron. Of course, that implies that the state is all, and private life nothing. [<--Saul would agree with the last 8 words]

It doesn't make a lot of sense but that is the norm for the GOP.

Yeah, I feel the same way. At least when he makes a presidential run more of his ideas at least get discussed. Look at how many Rs have used some of his rhetoric. Of course, they don't mean it. At least it gives a chance for certain ideas to air nationally.

What's the jab at me all about? I like RP just fine and think he'd be a good POTUS. That doesn't mean that I'm blind to the fact that he stands no chance of winning.

Yeah, as if that's what this thread is about—not his congressional election but the presidential, now.
You're just using this to get another one of your jabs in. That's what I call being a tard.

How silly of me to think that this article had anything to do with the presidential election when the article starts out with:

Paul, 75, will instead focus on his quest for the presidency in 2012.

“I felt it was better that I concentrate on one election,” Paul said.
