Why did Dr. Paul stop actively campaigning?Submitted by TJV123 on Wed, 07/18/2012 - 17:59
Let me start off by saying that since discovering Dr. Paul in 2007, my life, outlook, work-ethic, political views, and pretty much every part of my being has been profoundly changed.
Most of my friends think I have an unhealthy obsession with Dr. Paul, but that doesn't stop me from discussing the liberty point of view at every possible chance.
I saw Dr. Paul speak at UCLA this year and was truly moved to see the reception his/our ideas received from the young people there.
My question is, why did he stop? With 3 million in the bank, drawing 10,000 supporters at every college campus he visited on literally 1 or 2 days notice, why did he stop doing what he had been doing for 30 years? I didn't understand it then, and I don't understand it now.
Please know that this is not a critique of Dr. Paul in the least, as he is the only person I would ever say I "admired" in my entire life. I would just like to hear the insight of the community here.
