Ron Paul to Run for President in 2012, Will Announce in January 2011?

Ron Paul is planning to run against Obama in 2012, according to hardcore activist and Paul insider Matt Collins. For strategic reasons, Ron Paul is expected to delay his official announcement until January 2011.

However, Ron Paul denied in two radio interviews dated 8/18 that he had made a decision or announcement. Whether he runs or not will depend on the level of support and encouragement he receives between now and the end of the year.

  • RUN RON PAUL!!! We’ll all vote for you.

    You’re the best man qualified for the job.

    The man best qualified to be president.

    You’ve awakened an entire nation.

    Thank you. We love you.

    Good luck, good health, God bless

    Please don’t bother, Mr. Paul. Your economics are sound, but your foreign policy is for the birds.

    • Ted, you must be one of these interventionist morons. Don’t you realize our foreign policy caused this war to happen, it was created by blowback from Operation Cyclone and Zbigniew Brzezinski. Diplomacy works better than violence. You must investigate reasons for hostility before being so reactionary.

    • Rae

      Yeah, Ted. “For the birds.” So weird how when GWB ran on the same (former?) conservative foreign policy platform, Republicans cheered:

      The George Bush You Forgot

      And the Founders were a bunch of kooks too!

      “Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.”
      –Thomas Jefferson

      “Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens,) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake; since history and experience prove, that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government. But that jealousy, to be useful, must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defence against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation, and excessive dislike of another, cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots, who may resist the intrigues of the favorite, are liable to become suspected and odious; while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests. ”
      –George Washington

      Ron Paul 2012! Freedom ~ Peace ~ Prosperity

      … at last.

    I really would love to see this happen but i fear it could turn out to be another kennedy situation, there is no room 4 a free thinker in this zionistic society. Its a shame that were all treated like subjects rather than citizens. Good luck Ronnie, for the future of the world i stand by you 100%

    • Forest

      Holycrap, clearly you think too highly of Ron Paul. FYI he has unsuccessfully run for president twice before and all he does is lose in a spectacularly embarrassing fashion…

      Come on out of that rabbit hole, Alice.

      • David Aiello

        Do you really think his intentions of running as a libertarian candidate in ’88 was to win? It was about building a foundation for his ideologies.

        • Forest

          And you COMPLETELY gloss over the insane comment, typical of a Paulian, and go straight to asserting that you think this ‘foundation’ is so utterly strong, he is an assassination candidate by the nefarious (and popular among conspirators) ‘powers that be’?

          To reiterate, ari says ‘i fear it could turn out to be another kennedy situation’


        • Forest

          To reiterate, ari says ‘i fear it could turn out to be another kennedy situation’… As if anyone feared Ron Paul


  • Jim

    Don’t stop until you get your name on the Presidential ballot. I’ll write in if I have to but I’d much rather fill in a circle.

  • DCZE

    I will absolutely vote for you AGAIN!!! (I wrote you in last time!)

  • Diane Burkland

    Thank you so much Dr.Paul, you are the answer to our prayers. You bring us together as none in the government today can. We love you and are ready for
    the 2012 battle.

  • Davido

    Fred the soiled prophylactic, Forest, Dfens, Depends, and all other aliases of this delusional psychotic:

    Ron Paul knew 9/11 was fishy; Iraq was beyond absurd from day one.

    And Afghanistan is no place to find the compadres of 19 saudi arabians “armed with BOX CUTTERS”, especially after we armed Bin Laden and the Mujahadeen against the very Russians who fled his mountains after losing nearly 1 million troops.

    Plain and simple: we needed a huge excuse to start a few wars in the region to secure oil (not happening) and prevent attacks against Israel. But Cheney knows from Vietnam that to keep people scared and confused is the first law of the fascist-military state’s propaganda. (Refer to Hermann Goerings’ writings)

    Korea and Vietnam bogus excuse: threat of a communist take-over. Result: we leave with our tails tucked, securing the same results that would have transpired without us sending one dollar or troop to either place.

    Yes, the INVISIBLE man in the sky, the savior in the clouds, the burning bush, the technicolor dream-coats, the frog and blood thunderstorms . . .


    I suppose I should re-read Paul Bunyan. Maybe his blue ox, Babe, is an acre tall, two wide and five in length. Maybe Obama and Bush really are doing what’s best for the country, my kids and grandkids . . .

    Wait. Ron is running. There is hope for rational thought and the scientific method yet! Ron Paul 2012!

  • April Greene

    YES!!!! You go Ron and take it all the way!! We so desperately need you to help get America back to the proud and strong nation we once were with everyone and I mean everyone back to work. and united as ONE NATION, able to understand each other, taking care of one another first. How can we possibly help any other nation when this nation is so ill? You have my vote and when the time comes I will strive to get as many others behind you as I can in Michigan!!!!! I now have renewed hope in a hopeless situation!!! Get those of us over 50 back to work please!!!! and free this country from needless regulations and get rid of the federal reserve!!!!!!!

  • Halle-flippin’-lujah!

  • Ross

    From one happy Aussie.

  • Russia calls for Ron Paul!

    • GB

      Spaciba, bolshoi!

  • Jarrod

    Thank you, so much Dr. Ron Paul. You are one of the few glimers of hope this country has left, thank you so much. This is an answered prayer.

  • Ron Paul is the real “HOPE” and CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN”! I am looking forward to hearing him say that he will run for president in 2012 early next year! I hope that he does!

    • fred the protectionist

      Ron Paul is “change” alright, but he certainly isn’t change “we can believe in”.

  • I have said this many times before.
    Ron Paul is the only hope of unifying the hijacked Tea Party movement, Republicans and Libertarians alike into a tidal wave of success. anyone else will only split votes

  • Tyler

    I can’t wait! We have to put him in office. This website needs to start advertising on facebook.

  • jim

    Thank god. Truly. Just thinking about how obscure he was last time. Building his army from scratch along the way. It was like guerilla warfare trying to get noticed. We’re all here right from the start this time Dr. Paul, mobilized and informed. Let the war for hearts and minds begin through as peaceful means as possible.

    RON PAUL IN 2012 !!!!

  • Brian


  • Anon

    In other news, Ron Paul has unofficially announced that he will be losing the Republican Presidential primary again in 2012!

  • y

    I’ll wait until January 2011 to believe this. This just sounds too good to be true.
