Ron Paul to Stop Active Campaigning For the Presidency
Matt | On 15, May 2012
Ron Paul is a tough old(er) man and many people could probably learn a thing or two from him.
The time has come, however, for the inevitable. Paul must begin to wind down his failing presidential bid against GOP powerhouse Mitt Romney. He recently announced that he will suspend active campaigning for the presidency, a move that will take him off of the ever-important campaign trail. Paul, instead, will focus on gaining more delegates at the state-level conventions. He is not out the race yet.
One has to give Paul his credit. He is the last official man standing against Romney and has refused to back down. However, his earned delegates (99) compared to Romney’s (945) should have sent him packing a long time ago.
I get Ron Paul’s passion for smaller government, more individual freedoms, and radical changes to some of the current policies in place. However, he simply wasn’t winning the fight against the other candidates. To this day, Paul hasn’t won one state in the primary race to the August convention.
Hopefully, reality will set soon for Ron Paul that he won’t be president in 2012. It’s puzzling me why he is still seeking delegates. Does he not see the bright red exit sign?

Do you agree with Ron Paul’s decision to end active campaigning and focus on state-level delegates?
Or, should he exit the race altogether?
