Texas Congressman and Presidential Candidate Ron Paul announced today that he will not be seeking re-election so he can focus on his presidential bid.  His son, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) issued a statement about his father’s decision:

“History will record the legislative record of Ron Paul as an extraordinary one – perhaps unparalleled. There probably has never been a more consistent believer in limited government in Congress. America deserves a statesman like Ron Paul as her president, a man I am proud to call my father.”

  1. Ron Paul poses as a Constitutional scholar, but I don’t regard him as anything of the kind.

    1. Don’ worry Revjab4, no need to back up a statement with any kind of facts or observations to back it up.  But please use Jon Kyl signature line ‘not intended to be a factual statement’.
