Huge News! Does This Line Up With His Special Announcement On The Jay Leno Show?

"On Aug. 31, Congressman and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul officially washed his hands of the GOP, just as the 2012 Republican convention comes to a close. Citing the party being no different than the Democrats in fiscal spending and irresponsibility, the Texas Congressman denounced fully that the GOP in its current form was no longer his."

My take is that he was not

My take is that he was not 'washing his hands of the GOP'. What he said was as true 20 years ago as it is today. So I seriously doubt that he will official renounce the party here at the end of his career. RP simply stated the way he sees things, being unchanged for decades.

whatever Ron does

I hope he understands that a Romney win is the worst possible election outcome for the liberty movement. A major goal has been to take over the GOP. A Romney win would mean total failure of the movement in the short term. I have to qualify that by noting that the election is likely rigged so it would only be an 'apparent' failure. If Romney is installed by cheating and rigging then it's out of our hands. Ron Paul's campaign has already surrendered to Romney once, I hope that decision doesn't continue to dictate Ron's actions.

i think he'll either endorse

i think he'll either endorse or run with johnson.

if not then im not too excited unless he offers some hard rocking legislation.

Will Ron Paul use his Leno

Will Ron Paul use his Leno appearance to announce something big?


A third party run. (41%, 283 Votes)

An endorsement of Gary Johnson. (35%, 242 Votes)

No. Time to relax! (19%, 134 Votes)

A new educational project. (13%, 93 Votes)

It was all a joke, he's really a neocon. (Endorses Romney)
(2%, 12 Votes)

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Yeah, in a way it would be

Yeah, in a way it would be great if he ran as an independent. At the same time, after all that he has gone through, nobody could blame him saying enough is enough.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

We would need 10,000

We would need 10,000 dedicated activists to hit the blogs and comments saying, "Now that Ron Paul is running independent, there is ZERO chance that Romney can win, therefore the ONLY hope Republicans have of unseating Obama is to vote for Ron Paul!"
However, you can not imagine the feelings of elation and utter joy I would have if Paul ran as an independent and beat Romney AND Obama!

More twistedness from RevPac

I'm guessing Gary got hired by GJ or something.

Either that or desperate for another money bomb to pilfer.

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:

"All lies in jest...

'Til a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest."

The Boxer. Simon and Garfunkel.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Let's make this special

Let's make this special announcement REALLY SPECIAL!


Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!


This all started with the bloomberg interview, and by the time it gets posted here, it's 5th hand information that is nothing even close to what the original story was.

Go listen to the bloomberg interview. He says he was pleased with his campaign and he doesn't like politics, and doesn't care for (or take ownership of) political parties.

You guys are either passing this stuff around to get traffic to your sites, or are incredibly naive for 'awake' persons.

I kinda figured. lots of

I kinda figured. lots of wishful thinking.

This article is poor

This article is poor journalism. He did not wash his hands of the republican party. He simply denied ownership. The same way that he says the liberty movement is not his movement.

In fact, Dr. Paul encourages the exact opposite. He wants us to become MORE involved in the GOP.

I honestly hope so. PRIOR to

I honestly hope so. PRIOR to the RNC, Ron always promoted the concept of cleaning up the Republican party. But after witnessing the shocking events at the RNC and the corruption and fraud of the primaries, it's pretty clear that Ron might be having second thoughts about such house cleaning. Personally, I think the time is ripe in our country for Ron to start a new party AFTER the general election of 2012 is complete. His stature and committed fellow travelers should be up to that monumental task. For 2012, Johnson should probably graciously ask Ron to take the leadership of the Libertarian party and humbly accept VP. This latter tactic will then set the stage for the following performance, i.e. the creation of a NEW political party (ugh - let's eliminate them eventually) by the dawn of 2013.

We're the only ones shocked by the corruption.

Ron Paul already knew they were like that.


Maybe. Maybe, not. As a

Maybe. Maybe, not. As a sitting congressman, he definitely should have known the magnitude of the corruption. Time will tell.

and if you're a John Birch

and if you're a John Birch Society member you already knew of the corruption as well. Nothing new.

There's a significant

There's a significant difference between knowing corruption and the MAGNITUDE of corruption on display at the RNC.... a SIGNIFICANT difference. ;)

Maybe, Ron wanted his supporters to see the SHOCKING magnitude of the corruption that was possible. Who knows with certainty at this point except Ron himself?

Make No Mistake

Part of the lesson RP wanted to teach is how deep it goes. He has shown us what we are up against.

I think people are misinterpreting this statement

by President Paul. When the little snippy girl asked him "how do you feel about your party" and he responded "it's not my party"... I think he meant that he doesn't OWN the party, and he isn't in CHARGE of the party. I don't think he was washing his hands as many are thinking.

On the other hand, President Paul is a sly old dog and is excellent at the hidden meanings in statements. He doesn't usually misspeak, so I could be wrong.

Thomas Jefferson: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Viva La Revolucion!

No we are not mis interpreting his statement because

5 days ago he issued a state about the 2 party system and how a true liberty candidate will never emerge out of neither party.

I really hope he runs 3rd

I really hope he runs 3rd party and think the GOP is a dead end, but that said, I agree with your interpretation.

gold = money
war = health of the state
liberty = prosperity

More like "I dont OWN the Republican party"

Yes, that is what I heard. He was NOT disowning the Republican party. He's still a Republican congressman!



Praying for this but waiting from Ron himself!

Where is the Video?

I want to see it live. Not in print. I want to see Dr. Paul say it. Anyone have a video clip?

I think they are reading too much into this

Let's sit back and wait before we start getting our hopes up.
