Ron Paul IS going to run for PresidentSubmitted by OFallonBrent on Sun, 03/27/2011 - 20:15
Rather than bump the disgusting post about Ron Paul NOT running, I thought I'd post a counter thread.
I have just as much inside information as the poster that made the statement he is not running. In every interview I have seen he has never said he is not going to run.
If I were him, I'd do as much as possible in congress before announcing. Once you have announced your run, you now have to focus on running. Right now Ron Paul is in the position he has been waiting for. He has the Fed by the balls. They cannot ignore him now that he is the Chairman of the House Subcommittee for Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology. He can focus on that for a little while, as he should.
The other thing that begins once you have announced is you have to start spending money. It is often the case that the candidate with the most money at the end of the race does better than the one that blows their wad early in the game. The longer the announcement is delayed, the better it is financially. Every day he waits to announce he saves tens of thousands of dollars. Isn't that a good fiscal conservative? Isn't that what a good steward of donations would do?
As for campaign staff, etc, I'd argue he has the biggest ever seen. The C4L has over 600,000 members. Then there are the hundreds of thousands of other supporters who are not in C4L. Many of us are race horses in the gates waiting for them to spring open. Once they do and he turns us all lose, it will be a campaign the likes of which no one has ever seen. If people think that 2008 was wild, just wait until you see where things are one year from now.
He also knows that if he does not announce the fire in our bellies will not be there. When he does announce, he will unleash us all on the political world. Even Democrats like him better than many in their own party.
Ron Paul WILL run for President. I have no doubt.
