    Default Ron Paul won't run...

    For reelection to the House

    After serving almost 24 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Ron Paul told The Facts this morning he will not be seeking another term for the District 14 seat.

    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. “It’s about that time when I should change tactics.”

    His announcement will give enough time for anyone with aspirations for his seat to think about running, he said. Paul didn’t want to wait for filing in the 2012 primary to let people know he wasn’t seeking reelection.

    “I didn’t want to hold off until in December,” he said. “I thought it shouldn’t be any later than now.”

    I don't. I think he will be a bigger factor, though.

    Nah, man. Ron Paul is all for freedom of speech so he let a bunch of racists print shit in a news letter of his name. When that comes out, it's going to be hard to ignore.


    I think it's much more likely that he'll be seen as a joke than as a contender. But we'll see.

    Especially given that people bashed McCain for being "so old" in both of his last two campaigns, despite the fact that he was only in his 60s.

    Seriously, once presidential campaigns actually heat up, candidates like Ron Paul are going to get utterly demolished by the media.

    You guys seem to be forgetting the fact that Ron Paul is the anti-christ and that he has the power of hell behind him.

    unfortunatly this is true, and we'll be stuck for four more years with that trained monkey. Hopefully after 16 years of terrible leadership people will see that democrats and republicans are two different peanuts from the same lump of shit.
