Ron Paul to Announce Presidential Bid Next Month

submit to reddit

Appearing on the Alex Jones Show today, Texas Rep. Ron Paul said he will make a final decision within a month on whether he will run for president in the 2012 election.

Congressman Paul said he will soon make a “token decision” if he will participate in a presidential debate to be held in South Carolina in May. Dr. Paul said he will likely agree to be included in the debate between potential presidential contenders without a commitment to run or officially filing legal papers declaring his candidacy.

“We’re getting awfully close,” Paul explained, “and there are just a few other things I have to iron out personally to make my final decision.” He noted no other hopefuls – with the exception of Obama – have announced their intention to run for president.

Alex Jones asked Paul if he would leave the Republican Party and run as an independent. On Monday, the former governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, told Jones he would join Ron Paul as a running mate if the Texas representative left the Republican Party. Ventura declared both establishment political parties are the problem and he will not run under the banner of either.

Ron Paul said for now he will remain in the Republican Party. “Right now I am still a Republican Congressman,” Paul told Jones, “and we did it last time as a Republican.” He said that he believes political parties are irrelevant and the establishment dominated Republican Party now serves as a vehicle for delivering his Libertarian message. However, Paul said he has not ruled out leaving the Republican Party at some future date.

Earlier today, Ron Paul’s son, Rand Paul, the recently elected Senator from Kentucky, told Politico he believes his father will run. “I get every indication from looking at his schedule and hearing what he’s doing that I think he probably will,” Rand said. “But that’s his decision to make.”

In April of 2010, a Rasmussen poll found that Paul was in a statistical dead heat with Obama. The current president edged out Paul by 42 points to 41 in a hypothetical 2012 matchup, according to the survey. Irate Democrats accused the polling organization of gaming its results.

In February, Ron Paul won the CPAC presidential straw poll for a second year. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney came in second.

Last year, Paul won the top spot with 31 percent of the vote. Romney, who won the previous three CPAC straw polls, was second with 22 percent of the vote.

“My most important goal is to promote individual freedom by reducing the size and scope of government and its intrusion into the lives of citizens,” 84 percent of CPAC respondents answered affirmatively to a poll question asked during CPAC.

Ron Paul has championed individual liberty and warned against a large and increasingly despotic federal government for the entirety of his career.

    I’ve been following the speeches and writings of Ron Paul and on the surface, he looks good… BUT so did Obama “Change you can believe in”. It didn’t fool me for a second. To entrust the management of a Public Toilet to a Black man, let alone a supposedly First-World country like America, would be stretching my imagination further than I would ever dare to go!

    Sarah Palin looks good, she’s probably too stupid to tell a believable lie and at least we know that she won’t be groveling to the Muslims.

    Politicians will promise the entire world in a free plastic bag, with a ribbon to tie it in, until they get into power and there, my friends is the magic word P.O.W.E.R.

    They tell us that they are “called” to govern their country and help the needy and promote business and support the Constitution. They tell us anything that we are gullible enough to believe. What they REALLY want however is POWER, every now and then, one will let it slip – Nick Clegg was a recent one, he let it slip “Now that we are in POWER” – a Freudian slip of the tongue, but THAT is exactly what it’s all about POWER. Power over the people that their fathers couldn’t get into Politics! All power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    No-one cares what YOU think, once elected they have the POWER to do as they please. The Blacks are the best at this, at least they are honest. They rip up the Constitution like Mugabe did with the Lancaster House agreement and he declared a One Party State. Kissinger and everyone else KNEW he would do this, just like they KNEW Obama would change NOTHING, in fact he’s a real warmonger and they gave him the Nobel PEACE Prize. What a bunch of morons. It beggars belief that sane and supposedly civilized people could stoop to this, but they did.

    White politicians on the other hand, use the power of the Media and the gullibility of the public to get elected and then they quietly do the opposite of what they promised. Whenever there are two candidates like Ron Paul and Sarah Palin, if the support of the Public is within a 60:40 ratio and the 40 are going to vote for the WRONG person, the vote will be rigged. The voting system of most countries is rigged. The UK is the most blatant at it and the USA either tie or they are a very close second.

    If Ron Paul is elected, it’s doubtful that anything will change. There will be new wars, more “austerity”, and more hand-outs to India, Pakistan, and their ilk. There will be more taxation, less freedom, more laws, more detainees at Guantanamo and life will go on until the Muslims decide to take over and millions will be slaughtered in the name of Allah, the God of Peace, love and Tolerance.

    If Palin gets elected, she’ll probably start WW3, but the Muslims won’t have had time to breed themselves into a majority, so there’s a chance that the USA will win the new Crusades!

    Now when it comes to the time to vote for a new President, I think at this moment I’m leaning towards Palin. Sure, she’ll probably start World War III, but it’s got to come sooner or later, because we just can’t go on like this. The world gets less livable in every day. As a good rule of thumb, you should probably vote for the candidate that the Media is NOT supporting!

    Palin could be the Maggie Thatcher of the USA. Everyone hated her, but she was the only person who could put Britain back together after a Labour Government bankrupted it (again).

    I’ll reserve judgment until the day, but I think Palin is the best hope for the USA. The USA stands close to Islam for being evil, but the lesser of the two evils is the USA, they will bankrupt themselves or blow up the planet inventing new ways to kill people one of these days anyway. We can always hope for an extinction event before they manage to do it. Yellowstone seems a likely candidate.
