I want Ron Paul to go home.

I want Ron Paul to go home. I want Ron Paul to Retire. I want Ron Paul to spend time with his wife and family and garden. I want Ron Paul to retire, not just from the House of Representatives, but from politics and running for office all together.

I am not saying this as someone who is against Ron Paul. I am not his enemy. In fact, like most of us from the bottom of our heart, Ron Paul is a hero, an unprecedented and irreplaceable hero in our life. Yet, I want Ron Paul to go home.

I’ve often said to myself, that if some great challenge or purpose came to my life, or anyone’s life for that matter, that I would respond to the challenge and sacrifice my well-being and even my life if the cause is worth it. I still believe this to be the case, and I still stand ready to give my life, my hobbies, my money and my pleasure for a worthy cause. I believe that liberty is that cause, and I willing to take it all the way. As the saying goes, “liberty or death”, and I agree with that 100%, because without liberty, what is the point of living.

I am not alone in my thoughts. Seeing how the media works during this 2012 nomination cycle has truly been eye opening, even to those of us who are natural born hard core skeptics. The idea that was being presented was being accepted, was becoming understood, was becoming mainstream but in an instant was swept away never to be heard from again. The threat has been neutralized. This is the sick part of it all; this is the reason why I want Ron Paul to go home.

One man can only change the world so much before he deserves well rest. I want Ron Paul to know that he has inspired a generation, that he has changed the course of history, that his life and his life’s work were worthwhile. Sadly, there is nothing more he can do, but what he has done is and was truly saintly in the purest definition and generations to come will somehow humbly thank him just by being thankful for their blessed lives.

I want to be Ron Paul. I wish I could be as pure and devoted as Ron Paul. To imagine, a politician who means what he says and says what he means is so unique, so infinitely preposterous, that I think all of us want to be Ron Paul.

We are all Ron Paul. We are more than Ron Paul. We are Ron Paul with motivation. We are Ron Paul with friends. We are Ron Paul, not alone, but surrounded by an ever increasingly awoken populous. We are Ron Paul in a world where times are so desperate people are actually willing to listen to what we have to say. We are Ron Paul when the dollar is irrelevant. We are Ron Paul in the age of the internet where ideas are free to spread. We are Ron Paul if we want to be.

Ron Paul never backed down in the face of the real world. A world where politicians lie and cheat. A world where fake is real and real is ostracized as if it were fake. For this reason I think Ron Paul should go home.

Imagine a world with not one Ron Paul but ten Ron Pauls, 100 Ron Pauls, a million Ron Pauls. If we lived in that world, don’t you think it would be ok, even deserving, if just one was able to go home?

To say that there is nothing more Ron Paul can do is nonsense. He is changing the world and will continue to do so. It is what fires him up every morning. He doesn't want rest. He wants to see us as fired up as he is. He will be happy to rest for a moment with his feet up on the desk in the oval office after he issues the order to bring the troops home.

The only problem with what you are saying here is that

Ron Paul would not be happy sitting on the side lines. This man, when he gets the nomination will work harder than anyone before. Just like the night they asked people what they were going to do and he said something to the effect of, "when my family goes to sleep, I will read a book on the economy". Ron Paul does not want to go home, even if we all signed a petition, he would still be the one to spread the message. 2012 and beyond is the year of miraculous awakenings, can't you feel it, people are waking up, we are reaching critical mass. Counties have taken 57% of delegates, counties have taken 75% of the State's E-board, Ron Paul is the movement, he could not go home right now....he will later...He does not want to now....I don't want him to either.... He will see a nation wake up and turn off their televisions, he has to, good must prevail, faith must prevail, love must prevail, if not, we might as well all go home and start finding a cave to crawl into....

I'm sure he does too

But he can't when he see's how much the country needs him and how close he is to getting Revolution passed the tipping point and making it a reality nation wide. I won't give up because the alternative is to costly. He is in it not just for him, but for his kids, grand kids, etc.

Dr. Ron Paul is a young man.

Are you crazy? Dr. Ron Paul is only 76 years old. Storm Thurmond stayed in the Senate until he was 101 and if it wasn't for his death he would have stayed longer. Dr. Ron Paul doesn't need to go home, he is an example for all of us. If he doesn't get the presidency or vice presidency, perhaps with the delegates he will be able to negotiate a job as Secretary of State, or Secretary of the Treasury, President of the Federal Reserve. And then in four years run for president again. People need to stop having prejudice against Dr. Ron Paul's age, he still has a lot of milage left in him.

I somewhat agree.

I hate seeing him abused by the media, and treated the way he is. With this hatred out there being encouraged by the media, he goes out there to talk to crowds at great personal risk to himself. I have thought about what happens if he wins, would he be assassinated. He deserves to be home, in his garden, safe and happy, with his family. He has given so much and sacrificed so much. He deserves to have his retirement. He has earned it.

But I also think about how long he has waited for people to hear this message, and how it must feel to finally see that starting to happen. When I see the photos of the large crowds he is drawing, despite all the media blackout, that is inspiring to me and gives me hope. I can imagine he probably feels the same way, and that's part of the reason why he presses on. So I will stand behind him until he says he is done, and not a moment sooner.

Stick and stones.

Since when is Dr. Ron Paul sensitive to words? I have never seen him back down or react hurt because of something someone said. They are just words and they can be defeated by other words by Dr. Ron Paul ability to tell the truth.

Ron Paul Is Home !

America Is Home!
He's REMODELING,let's get busy and help before we get a new home surrounded by BARBED WIRE!


I somewhat sympathize with your sentiment but...

...I think Dr. Paul is totally DRIVEN by what he's doing - AND by the energy we are giving back to him.

He's doing his life's work now, even though many doctors are long retired by his age and perfectly content with all they've done.

But Ron Paul is a very special and extraordinary man.

He has made me a BETTER PERSON in the 4 years I've followed him, and I suspect many of us can say the same.

Let's not forget, almost all the great Austrian School thinkers lived to a ripe old age (Ludwig von Mises-92, Friedrich Hayek-92, Carl Menger-80, Friedrich von Wieser-76, Israel Kirzner-82).

They were driven by their cause and their passion for economics.

The reason many people die early I think, is because they retire and have nothing else to live for.

But this is not the case with Dr. Paul.

I know what you're saying about going home and enjoying his family, but there will be plenty of time for that later.

He is fully in his element right now and enjoying the ride of his life.

I'm sure the campaign trail is physically hard on him and Carol, but I'll bet they wouldn't trade this experience for anything.

It will all be over in a few months (UNLESS HE WINS!).

So let's just enjoy it while it lasts and give him as much support as we can.

This is the stuff memories are made of!

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Tough. He's made his choice.

Now earn this.


I wish Ron Paul could sit back and enjoy his wonderful family.
Participating on a less grueling level.

For all you selfish folks... let me tell you... flying all over the place in a small bumpy jet and living in hotels, eating crappy food, having your schedule tossed like a garden salad... would be hard enough for a fifty year old.

This man has never been a slouch.

Imagine working for 70 years like Ron Paul has (since age 7 here in Pittsburgh) and when your time comes to reflect and just enjoy the fact that you can still think straight...without Alzheimers... you're out there running around like a 25 year old trying to get a career off the ground... imagine the burden.

BUT!... I know Ron Paul is probably looking at these last years of his life as a great VINDICATION of standing his ground... never taking the bribe... never selling out on his principles... being the last man on earth in a position to really defend the document... IMO that was inspired by God...The Constitution that brought forth the most incredible country mankind has ever known...

I can see that he is savoring the victory... even enjoying the sparring... and especially relishing the spectacle of seeing the credibility of ALL THE MANY FORCES that have derided him, marginalized him, insulted him and frustrated him for a lifetime. The political ruling class, the corrupt media, the evil bankster empire, all being exposed for the traitors that they are...

And I know deep in my heart that Ron Paul will go to his grave a satisfied man because of all you lovers of liberty and justice. Without him we may still be sitting in our living rooms wondering "What can I do?" "I'm just one person". But WITHOUT US, Ron Paul will never again ever think that thought. He will never be alone again in his fight. And the world WILL change because he lived!

How could he consider retiring, as long as his body will sustain his activity?

We have made this race IRRESISTIBLE for Ron Paul.

I got choked up reading this post, VERY well said. A part of me sees Ron Paul and thinks, "This man needs a rest, for GOD's sake he's 76..." but like you, I understand that he is LOVING this, loving the awakening that is happening not only here but all over the World. What an incredible vindication of his standing strong for all these decades...I cannot even imagine. Ron Paul IS our President!!!

Tyranny's best friend is Liberty not served.

Don't worry

When he hears all of us chanting "President Paul" at his rallies, we are giving him that title he's deserved to hear for so many years...as he says, the young people and those who come to see him speak with the fire of liberty in their hearts gives him both energy and hope. He is absolutely enjoying this movement every bit as much as we are, and I really doubt he'd rather be at home on the back porch doing nothing.

People who make the kind of mark on history that Ron Paul will are wired differently than most. And I don't doubt that he has God behind him, giving him the strength and stamina to do what he was made to do.

Please do not send Paul home till after California votes.

I used to live in California. Each four years, I would wait to vote for my favorite Presidential candidate. Robertson, Buchanan etc. Sadly by the time I got to vote , my candidate was not on the California ballot ! It really makes you sad. Foiled again! There are many voters just dying to vote for Ron Paul ,if only he would stay the course. I am so glad I live in Iowa now. I always get to vote for my favorite candidate and even meet him or her in person. Is this heaven?

A Lesser Man Would

Lucky for us, he always seems to do the right thing.

I understand what you're saying but

I want Dr. Paul to do what HE desires. I bet that there's nothing else that he would want more than to see liberty, yours and mine, restored and to know that he contributed to that change to the best of his ability.

Dr. Paul is someone special and I don't say that as a cliche, he truly is an extraordinary person and I truly wish him what HIS heart desires.

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, an

Ah, but what would HE rather do?

Ron Paul seems to take genuine pleasure from meeting and rousing his supporters and seeing the growth of the movement. He IS retiring from Congress and he might not win the nomination or the presidency but I seriously doubt that he wants to sit around the house for the rest of his life. I fully expect he will be politically active as long as he can.

Please don’t take this post

Please don’t take this post the wrong way. I just wish we lived in a world where Ron Paul wasn’t needed so he could spend the rest of his life living in complete comfort the way he deserves. Nothing more, nothing less was meant from this post, and certainly I think we can all agree that RP deserves our gratitude.

I agree with you

He deserves to be treated better than the people he's spent his life serving are treating him. Few people deserve to sleep as well as Ron Paul does each night. His 'home' is The White House. But until he's reached his personal goals I will offer him my support and a strong cup of coffee : )
