Ron Paul Was Tempted To Walk Away From Presidential Race, But Fears U.S. Is In ‘A Slow Motion Default’

NEW YORK — Congressman Ron Paul, en route to Iowa to announce the creation of the presidential campaign exploratory committee, told an editorial breakfast of The New York Sun that “it’s tempting to just walk away” from the presidential race “but if what we’re predicting happens, we’re going to have to step up.”

He was referring to the collapse of the dollar and the threat of wider inflation and the damage they are doing to ordinary Americans, who are suddenly facing soaring gasoline prices and grocery bills and an erosion of their savings and the value of their homes.

The Congressman said he was not concerned about the talk about how a vote against raising the debt ceiling would lead to a default, saying America is in “a slow motion default now.”

Following Ron

About 1 year ago someone told me I sounded like a Ron Paul follower. Heck I didn't even know who he was. I started reading up on him and discovered that there was actually a politician out there that thinks like I do and have been a supporter for about a year now.
Glad it sounds like he is going to officially throw in with the rest of the field. Now we just have to get him the support he needs.

welcome!

Finding Ron Paul is good.

The article says...

Rand CAN run with his dad...is that true?

..sure. There is no Constitutional prohibition for it, but imo--not a good idea.

Boy, that sure sounded like an interesting meeting. The article also seemed just like good neutral reporting..
