~ I've Never Heard Ron Paul Say He Would Never Run For POTUS Again

My sense is if we just keep building infrastructure for the next four years he might be itching for a challenge after being retired for a few years.

I heard him say it -- in 1989

It was a joke in an old video: "I never want to do it again!" but he said it.

Now he doesn't speak in absolutes.....

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

If there were a Constitutional government, Potus might be fun.

That means there is a lot of work to be done.

Not just on the political front since the DNC and RNC are financed by the Federal Reserve or its members.

Liberty everywhere!

Free includes debt-free!

Ron didn't say what he was

Ron didn't say what he was resting for in 2016 on Leno. He could just be campaigning on behalf of Rand or another liberty candidate. I don't see him running again, he'll probably get called a perennial candidate then and will be ignored like Nader and Buchanan.

Did you watch his

appearance on Leno the other night? He actually stated something along the lines of..."I have to rest up for 2016 you know". He said it kind of jokingly, but said it none the less...

Let's pray that there is any semblance of this country left in 2016...and even if so, we all have a lot of work to do between now and then if we expect any different result than the last two elections, or should I say 10?...:)

but I imagine he'll want to a fourth time after finally being able to relax with his family for a few years".


"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

They keep bringing up his

They keep bringing up his age.

The pope is in charge of a billion people

Pope Benedict XVI is 85 years old
(birthdate: April 16,1927).

so would you also advocate a 2020 run, were 2016 not to succeed?

he'd only just be 85 then, a prime age in your opinion!

Is there any time when Ron Paul may stop running for President?

nice double trolling negatives

and IVE NEVER HEARD RON PAUL SAY HE WOULD NEVER EAT A FART!!!!!11111oneoneoneshiftone!!!!!!!!! quit trolling

I think Paul is tring

To take out the fed so other he himself or rand ad have a successfull bid at the whitehouse.
Now that I just saw the video update on audit the fed and the news about GAO audit of NY fed shows a huge transfer to china I think Paul is a genius.
Everybody talks about the 4 mill we still have left and there is 4 more weeks of congress being in session.
I think Paul is going to formally end his presidential campaign and transfer the money to cfl.
We are going to use the grassroots and political capital and campaign money to finish te job.
Kodos RAND for going into te snake pit.
The more and more Romney shows his colors and this tax situation the more more our senators will finally start to wake up.
Harry Reid is the last hope we have.
We need to start contacting him and begging him to do the right thing.
If Ron Paul went off and went libertarian or 3rd party it will make it impossible right now to pass the audit in the senate because people will resent him.
Lots of my neocon republican friends at work can't stand romney and they all agree that the GOP IS corrupt but they will never abandon the party. They like Ron Paul and they are weary of his supporters.
They are as scared and we are about what is going on.
The main line they throw me is anybody but Obama they don't care who anymore.
Ron Paul, rand Paul , Mitt Romney.
The ones I talked to after I explained to them how they snubbed us and they are sympathetic.
They were offended by the delegates walking out and are already blaming the loss on us.
They do want us in the party because we talk about common issues and they see me as a republican.
Until the fed is put in check don't ever think about a liberty candidate ever getting the time of day.
Maybe in November after the fed vote and Ron Paul retires from the house I am sure he will lay out the next action plan for us to get somebody up in the ballott slot 2016.
If Paul wants another shot at it then hell yeah.
Daug wead and Ron Paul both seem to actually find all this stuff fun.

So how do we start a new party?

I need help on this one..
How many signatures does Maryland need? My friend goes to lots of concerts.

Liberty Party Candidate 2016

Start getting the signatures for ballot access in all 50 states.
