Doug Wead: What is Next for Ron Paul?
Interesting...would make for an exciting 2016 race...
Whatever he wants
Why doesn't RP step aside and let Gary Johnson take the reins? I mean think about it. Johnson is running on the Libertarian ticket, how many votes is Johnson losing to Paul?
I'd like to ask Dr. Paul that question.
Nobody is listening to Johnson or the LP....Too young and well spoken.
It's easier for the inside-the-beltway establishment GOP and lamestream media to mock libertarians by propping up a guy that it's much easier to portray and deride as and a senile old crank, rather than dealing honestly with the issues raised.
No doubt, but I wonder about RP's reasons.
Maybe he's running with the proposition that there's no such thing as bad press.
Maybe he's working a variation of the Streisand effect with the media and party man insiders.
Maybe he's laying the groundwork for Rand.
Who can say for certain?
This is for if Romney wins this year and Ron can run against him in 2016...he would be the only one bold enough to do so and the people would only have 2 choices and the media would not have much of a choice but to cover someone running against a sitting president.
I have never heard such whining by a 3rd rate candidate who didn't get the nomination. We know that Paul can't possibly win the election as a 3rd party candidate so what would be his motivation for running? To try to get Obama elected? Say it then and quit sneaking around stabbing the republican party in the back.
In either case, Boiking most likely won't be running in 2016.
Please try to keep up.
