    Pretty much kills the only shot Ron Paul had at the Republican nomination, since it will likely send Romney to the convention with a first ballot win...look for a Romney/Santorum ticket.

    Dr Paul needs to be convinced to go Indie or Libertarian...

    I got the impression that due to his daughter's health issues, he was dropping out entirely.

    I could be wrong though.

    UGRev Get on with it!

    This is how I gathered it. A suspension isn't a complete drop out, but it sounded like he needed the cash to pay some bills so he just suspended so that he could legally receive campaign donations.

    Really sorry that his daughter is so sick...

    Oh, and don't worry about Romney.. just write in Ron Paul.

    Just a d--- mess now. Cannot vote for romney and will not vote for the POS. Guess I will write in a candidate in protest. Like they care. Seems the whole process is rigged. What ever happened to common sense candidates?

    It sucks. I wish every state would have there voting at the same time. As a PA resident that cannot for for another 2 weeks I am left with 1 person to vote for. Ron Paul will be my guy. I know he has a snowballs change in hell but it's not a vote for ROMNUTS. I will vote for whoever some November as we need Lord Obama out of office.

    DKR Interesting ideas, interesting stories

    I'm going to rant a bit.

    Yes, it is rigged in as much as you need an organization, management and a lot (shitpotload) of money to get elected for anything above dog catcher.

    I kept looking for "None of the above" on my ballot.

    I hate to say it like this, but the National offices go to the highest bidder, almost without fail.

    Here in Alaska Joe Miller won the primary, but "the money" wanted lil Lisa back in. BTW, the daughter of a sitting Senator who was elected Gov, she was appointed by daddy to fill his seat. Shades of Olde England.

    So the Native Corps ponied up millions and Lisa mounted a write in campaign.
    All the while the money folks worked to destroy Joe so completely, he will never be able to run for office again. Welcome home Lisa.


    Face it, we have the best government money can buy.

    And it still light years ahead of the EU and not even in the same universe as Mexico or the third world. At least every 4 years we get a chance to throw the bums out...

    As much as I'd like to see Dr Paul run as a third party candidate I really hope he dosen't.

    I just want Obama gone.

    Yea I know both parties suck.

    Well...in spite of my original reaction, in the end I am not ready to give up on Ron Paul. If Romney can just be prevented from getting enough for a first ballot win in legally bound delegates, I think we can still pull it off. One the delegates are unbound after the first ballot, there are going to be a lot more Paulists than the MSM is willing to see.

    The bottom line is that I won't try to choose between Barack Romney and Mitt Obama...there's not enough difference between the 2 to bother.
