The latest press release shows that:
Dr. Paul will announce his intentions for the fall presidential election and will be accompanied by several special guests.
This could mean anything. However, it doesn't sound like an endorsement, since the title of the press release calls this a "major" announcement.
I'm hoping Dr. Paul will run for the Presidency...perhaps on a 3rd Party ticket. I am not a political expert (and never will be); so I don't know all of the rules. Perhaps there is no way for Dr. Paul to run....I don't know.
But if it's possible, I think the news would be huge.
I've been against a 3rd party run from the beginning. However, after seeing McCain's acceptance speech and what the entire Republican Party has become, I think it's time for Dr. Paul to separate himself once and for all. His name should no longer be associated with the Republicans...even if it means losing his Congressional seat.
McCain has been on a roll. His VP pick and convention bounce have given him the lead in several polls. I'm starting to see some Democratic writers actually getting worried that Obama might lose the election. I think this is wonderful news for a Ron Paul candidacy. I believe there are many Obama supporters who can be swayed to vote for Ron Paul; especially if Obama continues to lose steam.
There is a Liberty & Peace vaccuum, and there's no better man then Dr. Paul (and his passionate supporters) to step in and fill it.
Those are my amateur political thoughts.
