Posted on 05/14/2012 12:02:59 PM PDT by mnehring
An announcement from Rep. Ron Paul indicates that the Republican presidential candidate will no longer actively campaign for the GOP nomination, but will continue to work to secure delegates at upcoming Republican state conventions.
"Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted," said Paul, in a statement released Monday afternoon. "Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have."

Either on the 22nd of this month, or on the 29th when Texas votes, Romney will clear the 1,144 delegate count threshold and have the delegates to assure his nomination.
I was for Sarah 1st, then Cain, the Santorum, and then Newt. I do not trust Romney's liberal record from a "purest" conservative standpoint.
But when I look at the issues/platform he has established to run on and been committing to these last many months, it is a good platform, and something we can hold him to as opposed to the wretched Obama who is promising more "fundamental change" and destruction to America...in fact, he will double down on it in a second term.
That makes my choice in the contest between Obama and Romney clear.
With Obama actions as President, ongoing as they are towards the far left, I believe Romney will...and I hope it is so.
This isn’t about Romney, this is about the guy far to the left of all of them on Article 2 issues. Paul isn’t just a RINO, he is completely unacceptable as Commander in Chief to our troops.
Not that it much matters, given that CA seems bent on self-destruction anyway, but our primary election also has NO impact on the primary. The two largest states are again denied a voice in the primary selection process.
None of these guys are farther left than romney.
I fudge romney by his actions and his actions as governor have been entirely one sided... Socialist side that is.
Have fun choking down Robomney-care.
Obviously the plurality of Republican voters are stupid, uninformed and gullible. Look at the presumptive nominee.
Of course this also holds for American voters in general. We have the government we deserve.
I mean this with all do respect...
Your gonna lose.
Your tactics are based on a faulty premise. Your not playing to win your just feeding the crocodile hoping it’ll eat you last.
I recognize that good people can be misguided.
Even if romney wins the general (he wont), he will govern like the socialist he is, and the republicans in the congress will support him. they may yell a little to save face back home, but they will go along...
YOU are helping to cement us ALL to robomney-care. but I also recognize that you cant even see that is going to be the outcome.
SILLY FREEPERS PAY NO ATTENTION TO THIS SO CALLED CANDIDATE STOP HE NEVER DID HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY STOP PLEASE SEEK OTHER THREADS STOP ALSO AN ANTISEMITE LIAR ET CETERA DID I MENTION UNPATRIOTIC AVOID THE ZOT FULL STOP
Of course! We must believe! It's the only way! I mean, would Romney lie?
Well this one goes by the way side of Ross Perot.
A lot closer to Lyndon LaRouche.
If Obama is elected there is no doubt, and there is no chance for a good outcome of what he will do to America..
If Romney is elected there is some chance...and I believe it a very good one. You of course appear to believe Rommney is virtually the same as Obama and I believe that is just as wrong headed as it can be.
We’re not going to get it all back at once. We are going to have to scratch and claw our way back, taking the positives we can gain, while ensuring we do all in our power to mitigate any negatives. A conservative congress which we must elect in either case, will help do that.
I have made my positions on the overall issues clear at the following article which I wrote. Give it a read sometime if you want to have a better basis for judguing me outside of the hyperbole you are throwing around.
AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY
I’ve been involved with this a long time and have been out in the trenches against these statists of all varieties. Another good read would be:
The Stand at Klamath Falls
As it is, I will continue to work for all I am worth to try and preserve our liberty for my kids and grandkids sake and do anything I can to ease back away from the precipice we are dangling over.
Can I still send money?
His minions will still show up at precint meetings and try to dominate state conventions that choose delegates.
Yep, they are having a money bum in a few days to prove they are still winning.
There isn’t a dry eye in Paulville, TX I guess.
You can wiki it.
We won’t be able to hold Romney to anything.
We will have zero influence over him:
We will have already proven that our threats are hollow by electing the leftist in the first place.
