Ron Paul looks to big picture

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 6:41 pm

Ron Paul has all but dropped out of the GOP race now that McCain will be the party’s nominee barring some tragedy. He’s focused on reelection to the House and on the bigger picture of injecting his brand of libertarianism into politics.

From the link:

“Elections are short-term efforts,” Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, told supporters in a Web video tonight. “Revolutions are long-term projects.”

Paul indicated that the 2008 presidential campaign portion of his revolution is over.

An earlier version of this report indicated that Paul would “drop out” of the race. In the video, Paul did not use the words “drop out,” opting instead to say the campaign is “winding down,” and he encourages supporters to still cast votes for him. But he referred to his campaign in the past tense.

“We are still in the early stages of bringing about the changes that this revolution is all about,” Paul said in the video. “Let us hope that we can one day look back and say that this campaign was a significant first step that signaled a change in direction for our country. Our job now is to plan for the next phase.”


  1. FreedomFest 2008 – Congressman Ron Paul and Bob Barr have been confirmed as a speakers and they will join our 100 plus speakers and 1,000 plus attendees in Las Vegas on July 10 -12 at Freedomfest 2008. We look forward to their thoughts and insight on the future of the Ron Paul Revolution and his Campaign For Freedom.

    Also we will also have Richard Viguerie, often called the “funding father” of modern conservative strategy as his direct mail efforts started the modern conservative movement. 2008 will be a watershed year in American politics in our fight for a return to liberty and limited constitutional government. We must continue the campaign to promote the Ron Paul Revolution of liberty, a return to limited constitutional government and free markets to the American public.
