Will Ron Paul Retirement Upstage Romney "Coronation"?
Written by Joe Wolverton, II

For only the second time in 415 votes, Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas) came out the winner in a floor vote on legislation he sponsored.

As The New American reported:

Texas Congressman Ron Paul's bill to audit the Federal Reserve Bank easily passed the House of Representatives July 25 by a vote of 327-98. Every House Republican voted for the "Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2011" (H.R. 459) except freshman Rep. Bob Turner of New York, while Democrats were about evenly split.

This was the first time that Paul’s call to the audit the Fed received a stand-alone vote on the floor of the House of Representatives since it was first introduced more than a decade ago.

Undoubtedly, this victory has resulted in a deposit of substantial political capital in the coffers of the libertarian-leaning obstetrician. Then there is the fact that he counts on the unwavering loyalty of legions of supporters who fill to the rafters any hall or auditorium where their leader appears. This rock star-like reception added to the fact that Representative Paul is retiring from Congress is seen by some as a formula for upstaging the GOP’s “presumptive nominee” Mitt Romney.

Credentialed RP GOP delegates will upstage Romney's coronation

Ron Paul will win the nomination.

For the good of this Country...

I hope that Romney experiences the greatest embarrassment of his adult life in Tampa...

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

not upstage but winning what is his..

1. Supporters aren't upstaging anything-He won but oromney's paid hacks shut down elections in many states so he himself could win..RP won those states and has plenty of delegates..much more than 500.

2. He's retiring from congress not the liberty Lovelution movement, as he alluded to this fact.

Keepin' it real.

Ron Paul is not retiring

He's changing jobs but it depends on us which one it will be.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

Of course it will! Nobody cares about Flip Obamaney.

Let's give them something to talk about...lol.
