The Real Play is Governor Paul 2014!

Has any stopped and thought a moment how much more influence RP could have as governor of Texas than president?

National politics is controlled by he machine. RP made little difference on the Hill in all those years, blocked at every turn. The difference he made was because of TV and getting the word out, not because of any bill.

But as governor he has real control of a productive state. And if DC give him problems, viva la secession.

The Liberty Movement is runnig out of steam

Gary and the rest of the 3rd party have made no impact. Rand hasn't distance himself from the establishment. Once the election cycle ends the public will go back to sleep. We need to make the bridge to Governor Paul 2014 to keep and momentum as we hope for someone to step forward and take the baton. To me i only see Judge Andrew that has the principles and voice.

I don't think Dr. Paul is interested in governing anyone.

That's why he became a representative of the people all these years.

As president, Dr. Paul has explained how it's not what he going to do as president but what he's NOT going to do.

He knows that government is force by nature and he believes that government is best which governs least.

"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."

The power players in Texas aren't the Bushes, Rove or Perry.

They are very behind the scenes wealthy....BIG crooked, corrupt wealthy people and they are happy staying on the down low and not having their names associated with any of the politicking. They may like their wives names in the social section of the papers about dinner parties and fund raisers, but they are so crooked they don't want their names anywhere. They aren't about fame, they are about control and it is their rich man's game to topple others. They have no problem with having people murdered.

Karl Rove rules

Texas. Statewide Dr. Paul is weak right now. That would be like Christmas for 4 yrs. A dream after, Bush and Perry monopoly forever and ever and ever!

yeah, he could have Texas

yeah, he could have Texas secede, something that should have been done a long time ago.

I wonder why he didn't ..

I wonder why he didn't .. year after year ... of the same ol stuff...

Why has he not run for Governor yet?



Because he wouldn't win.

He's been able to win elections in a small area where his patients and neighbors love and respect him. One of the reasons he did not run for re-election this year is because the Texas GOP redistricted his area and it would have been much harder to win. I live in Texas and to be honest, all you hear is empty republican rhetoric. That's what wins elections here (see Rick Perry) and Ron doesn't do the empty rhetoric.

One other thing...

How old is that popular governor of Arizona? As governor, RP couldn't be criticized for his age I believe.

I have been thinking exactly

I have been thinking exactly the same thing. Of course there will be powerful forces like the Bushes that will go all out to prevent that but I believe he just might have a chance there in Texas to become Governor. I'm not sure he would want to do it since he has focused his philosophical teachings on federal issues. As governor he would have to deal with the death penalty and other touchy state issues he might not be up to.

Brilliant. This will gain traction

Long live the republic of Texas.

You are on to something, we should concentrate on getting

Liberty Governers. That's is brilliant and cheaper and a more effective way to protect our liberties. Since the States give the power to the Federal government and can also take the power away.

Whether he'd do it or not,

Whether he'd do it or not, how could we reach out to him to at least get his response to this?

I would be happy with what ever decision he makes but I would love to hear his opinion. Ron Paul in a position where he could oppose the federal government in ways he could never do while in Congress. He could be in a role that could effect at least one state's economy and from his example, Texas could become a model in which the rest of the nation could follow.

I agree it is the next best option for advancing liberty if he can't become president. I say that we at least pursue this option until we at least get a response from Ron Paul himself.

What say you Daily Paulers?


When will this obsession with Ron end??
Let's try to bring ourselves back to REALITY, yes?

When our obsession with

When our obsession with liberty and getting liberty minded candidates into office ends. Sorry we aren't obsessed with Dancing with the Stars and Lindsay Lohan - maybe you are on the wrong site.

It will stop when he dies.

I think Texas has a pretty

I think Texas has a pretty weak governorship compared to most states, but he'd certainly use every play in the book to be effective. He'd do great!

If he did

I'd be packing my bags and headed for the lone star state the day he announced.

Me, three

I would move my whole family to TX! It would be like John Galt country.

I live in Texas

and I have been thinking about this scenario for a while now...it would make more sense then running for President. Bring power back to the States!! Shoot, if he was Governor of Texas and Rand somehow was able to win POTUS in 2016, I think America may be great again.

Leave Ron be

He will be 80 years old, will have to compete with Perry, Abbott, and possibly Hutchinson and Medina. Medina is the liberty candidate if she runs again anyway. Face it, Ron is done with politics. Let him retire and live his life out as he sees fit. He showed us the way, it is up to us to keep the ideas alive.

They don't make the Queen quit and she is like 106

All one needs is a young mind. If FDR can ruled from a wheelchair, certainly RP and serve from his bicycle! (apologies for mentioning FDR on a RP site.)

I already wrote it in another

I already wrote it in another thread.

Please stop playing the nanny for Ron Paul and let this good man speak for himself what he is able to do.

Maybe being Governor or running again for the presidency in 2016 is living his life as he sees fit.

I see nothing wrong with articulating what we would appreciate. It is just a nice compliment for Ron Paul, regardless of whether he wants to do it or not. But the decision is up to him and not us.

Thank You!

My thoughts exactly. Dr Paul is obviously a grown man and can make decisions for himself. In fact, it is the only thing he has been doing in politics for 30+ years.

He'd be...

...78, wouldn't he?

i thought

he is already 78

77 years old

He was born August 1935
