Is he really going to quit? Ron Paul hints he may be dropping out of the republican presidential race for the White House. He will be sadly missed. Not! Hell, I didn't even know he was still running, completely forgot about him, yup, I did.
The latest news....
WASHINGTON - GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul is hinting to supporters that he is ending his long-shot campaign for the presidency.
The Texas Republican congressman addressed supporters in a 7 1/2-minute video on his campaign Web site Thursday night and did not specifically say he was quitting the race.
He said that although victory in the conventional political sense is not available in the presidential race, many victories have been achieved due to the hard work and enthusiasm of his supporters.
So does this mean he will drop out soon? I think it's probably a good bet. Even though the nomination is sewn up he has still been hanging in there. Maybe were seeing the beginning of the end....

I didn't realize he was still in until I was doing some research on candidate fundraising a couple of days ago. You hear nothing about him nowadays. I don't know if you missed it at the end of one of my posts, but Paul has drawn more donations from active-duty military personnel than any other candidate. Why? I can fathom a guess.. but I'd actually like to hear a reason from a service member who has donated?

Far and away the best candidate running. He actually does represent real change. Alas, the country is not ready for more freedom yet.

Maybe the mood will change over time as the major TV networks become less and less pervasive in their mainstream propagandizing. Maybe, just a maybe, the internet will grow important enough in disseminating information that it will make a real difference to a majority of people instead of the small minority it affects today.

Independant news and differing points of view may cause liberty to become popular again. But that is a long way off as is a meaningful candidacy by a Paul-like contender.
