Ron Paul won't seek re-election to House

He's focusing 100% of his attention on presidency.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0711/58792.html

It's all or nothing for the congressman from Texas:

After serving almost 24 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Ron Paul told The Facts this morning he will not be seeking another term for the District 14 seat.

Paul, 75, will instead focus on his quest for the presidency in 2012. 

“I felt it was better that I concentrate on one election,” Paul said. “It’s about that time when I should change tactics.”

His announcement will give enough time for anyone with aspirations for his seat to think about running, he said. Paul didn’t want to wait for filing in the 2012 primary to let people know he wasn’t seeking reelection.

“I didn’t want to hold off until in December,” he said. “I thought it shouldn’t be any later than now.”

I feel sorry for the people

I feel sorry for the people of Freeport and Galveston, who are losing the single best representative in our government.

Hopefully they will gain a great president from it.

An important psychological

An important psychological step for Ron.  He is "going all in."  You can't think like a leader unless you take the steps to get there...

We are all individuals with the same unique infinite potential as any other person you have ever come across.  Ron Paul is just a man... and he has his own set of ideals... do not support just the man, but the message of freedom he embodies.
