Sad Day - Ron Paul Staff Packing up His D.C. Office

It is a sad day today. I called the D.C. office and had my question answered, but in the process I found out that they are boxing everything up today.

"Let it not be said..."

Ron DID something. He raised awareness. He brought focus and scorn on those who have betrayed/destroyed our country. He cured my apathy! I am very happy that he is out of the mire called DC and back among the people who love him and his family. Just my two cents.

He went to Washington and left unchanged,

look at the bright side here there's not a lot who can say that... He got out of there clean.

Goodbye to All That, Rep. Paul

They came to shut down Ron Paul's office today. Took the computers and keys. We had packed up already the decades of papers, Dear Colleague letters, and funny little notes from the boss. A history of the era hastily assembled in various boxes. He toasted us in a final little tipple with touching words that moistened our austere gazes. We took a final (actually the first) group photograph and he was off, with his trademark wave and grin. And then silence. We struggle through the sadness of the end of that era; the battles, disappointments, triumphs, laughs.

So many are grateful for his achievements and leadership; our gratitude is also personal and private, different and special.

But we are thrilled and excited by what he has in mind for his next chapter. What a life-changing ride it has been. And will yet be!

I'm with the others

Happy that he is outta there! :-) If anyone has done his time, it is Ron Paul.

Jeff Deist, Dr. Paul's Chief of Staff

gave an interview the other day. He is moving on and sounded a little sad. He said Dr. Paul has lots of plans: YAL, C4L, FREE or Foundation for Rational Economic Education, working with Kucinich on projects, and maybe a cable TV station or videos.

I wish we could have all gone

I wish we could have all gone to D.C. and lined the streets as he drove/drives off.

We all do

friend. He will be sorely needed, or at least others like him.

Now that RP is done with the Republican party he can

do what ever the hell he wants, which if history can be trusted, will be furthering the message of liberty for all!!!

Ha!
This is a GLORIOUS DAY! Ron Paul is leaving just as he came.
as a gentleman and a scholar! He is free from the filth he has been forced to make deals with and made to listen to, all these years. Now RON can choose what road RON wants- and is free of the endless regulation he sought to curtail.
It has all been laid out clear as a bell on video what he has been doing, and the bills he has written, speeches he has made- and there are thousands of them!!

Ron will never have to worry or look over his shoulder at which law enforcement entity may be after him.
Ron is clean. He went in that way and is leaving that way.

He is free now. and he is still clean. That to me is amazing and means he is very special.

God Bless Ron Paul.

No my friend, this is not a sad day at all

It's a momentous joyous occasion! He no longer has to spend his time in that rat hole. He can spend his time writing more books, giving more lectures...maybe even he'll teach a class at the Mises Institute. Most importantly he will continue to visit universities and college campuses lighting brushfires of liberty in the hearts and minds of young people.

He has awoken an entire generation to the lies and deception perpetrated by the state. It's up to us now to continue to fight for liberty. Turn your sadness into inspiration. Turn your inspiration into action.

Liberty or Death

I am so happy for him,

and his family. Job well done Dr. Paul! Job well done!

Sad for the staff.... but I'm thinking

it's probably one of the happiest days of Ron's life!

He joined the political realm thinking he could make a difference by working in Washington DC. He has since learned that he is much more effective when he is out with the PEOPLE.

No more trips to that horribly depressing and evil place.
No more talking to empty rooms
No more having to put up with snide comments and snickering from those arrogant wind bags.
No more travelling, unless he WANTS to go to an invigorating event or to see the world with Carol.

I think Ron must feel like a 10 ton anvil has been lifted from his shoulders with this departure. He can spend time ONLY with those that he loves (his family) and with those that love him.

I am so happy that he made it out of there ALIVE!

CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU Dr. Paul for your years of sacrifice for all of us!

He should surely think : "Well done, good and faithful servant"

As a gentleman, statesman and Christian, his life has been exemplary.

If he promotes the right stuff, fine

Otherwise, I'm not in favor of dynasties (even for families of people I might happen to like).

This is not the end ...

-Ron Paul

He is far from done and we have a number of people

in office that he has set the stage for. If anything, I'm excited to see where he goes now. I'm excited that he won't feel he has to be so careful. He has shown an increased aggressive stance on a number of issues lately and I think that's because he's leaving.

So I'm not sad that he doesn't have to wade through shit every day of his life.

Dr Paul is going to ROCK

now that he is free of the vipers nest. His message will be heard far and wide.
Bring it on I say!!

This makes me sad...
