Safe Mode: On
Ron Paul's bid to be nominated for GOP president ends

THANK YOU GOD!!!
.............




Republican Rep. Ron Paul’s bid to be nominated for president at
the party’s national convention ended Saturday when he failed to win
enough delegates at Nebraska’s state GOP convention.

Paul, R-Texas, won two of the state's 35 convention delegates with
presumptive nominee Mitt Romney securing the rest, according to The Hill
newspaper.

Paul essentially stopped campaigning months ago and has instead
focused on winning delegates at state conventions to get officially
nominated at the Republican National Convention next month in Tampa,
Fla.

Getting enough candidates also would have allowed him to officially
address convention attendees with a 15-minute nominating speech.

Paul had won a plurality of delegates in four other states: Iowa,
Maine, Minnesota and Louisiana. However, the libertarian needed a fifth
state to secure the speaking slot so he focused his efforts on Nebraska,
the last to hold a GOP convention, according to The Hill.

Paul must now be invited to take part in official convention events.
He reportedly still plans to go to Tampa with hundreds of his
enthusiastic supporters.http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/07/15/paul-bid-to-be-nominated-for-gop-president-ends/

  • He had a lot of good ideas, a few bad ones, but overall he would have been a welcome and real CHANGE to the norm.

  • I shared a lot of his limited government beliefs. And if he was not such a foreign policy whack-job, he would have been more palatable to those like me.

    • @wharris

      I'm the same way (theoretically, since I don't have a vote in the US election).

      His domestic and economic policy was rock solid. I have a feeling a lot of his loopier ideas would have been tempered by congress, but the fact is, he alienated a lot of GOP and moderate Democrats with his foreign policy nuttery.

      It's unfortunate, because he would have been better than Odumba or Romneybot.

    • @wharris so you think america should be stomping around the world, policing (bullying) other nations for resources? You think we should continue to spend BILLIONS on the pointless wars, that take more innocent lives than anything else?

      We arent the guardians of Earth, we arent the greatest nation on Earth. We need to realize our place, and stand down, and rebuild ourselves.

  • Iceland knows how to treat bankers and crooked politicians. I know a lot of people would say well they are much smaller it would be worse here and BLAH BLAH BLAH. Yes it would be worse but then it would get better. The way it will happen now is that when this REAL crash finally comes and it WILL. It will be so bad that it will never happen again. Or at least until the memory of it can be wiped clean. If our great great grand parents were alive they would kick all of our asses for being so blind More..

  • I know Paul's stand on foreign policy was controversial, but he was going to end the fed. If the US doesn't end or at bare minimum audit the fed, then it will fall anyway. And no amount of foreign policy will even matter anymore, the good 'ol USA will be nothing but a wasteland for the vast majority of it's inhabitants. It's already happening.
