Ron Paul Campaign Statement on Santorum Withdrawal


Jesse Benton

The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign released the following statement concerning Rick Santorum’s decision to end his bid for the Republican nomination for the presidency.

“Congratulations to Senator Santorum on running such a spirited campaign. Dr. Paul is now the last – and real – conservative alternative to Mitt Romney. We plan to continue running hard, secure delegates, and press the fight for limited, constitutional government in Tampa.” — National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton

    Sure wish Santorum had dropped out closer to the beginning of the race. Like, just before Iowa would have been nice. But I guess it is good to see just how many people still support his closed-minded ideologies.

    Dr. Ron Paul must try to gain mainstream. It means more good promises and intentions, which come naturally from his economical proposals:
    – milions new jobs
    – much more money for US people for instance to give a number 200 000 dolars for usual, normal, average citizens
    – more money for retired
    – good, honest social care
    – good, honest health care
    – honest aid for victims ot these tornadoes
    And it is naturally clear that Ron Paul will make his best to realize these promises.

    What does Romney do? He lies. He says for instance: I am such superbusinessman and I will give milions new jobs. It is big lie. He will not do it, but he gains mainstream in such way.

      Yeah; RomNot is not exactly the “job machine” he liked to call himself, early on in the campaigning. Seems to me, since the BAIN CAP piece was proffered, RomNOT shut up about that.
      Isn’t that interesting?
      So, Mittens won’t be creating jobs; he won’t be ending any wars, and probably will send our kids deeper into trouble; he won’t be cutting ANY spending; what is it (ANYONE) that people find “attractive” in regard to that guy?

      And, why is the Grinch still in it? DO you think Santorum has a “deal” with the Grinch to be his running-mate, for dropping out when he did? OR, was it the racism spouted by Santorum (along with he backwards thoughts on society) that actually took him out of the race? I’d like to think it’s the latter, but am afraid it’s the former– not that it will matter much!

    Oregon for Ron Paul 2o12…
    Go to Ben Swann’s Reality Check as he talks about what will happen with Santorums delegates. It’s not over until it’s over….Just might be what Paul needs to move forward. Just heard in the recount in St. Charles they made Brent (the guy they arrested) GOP Chair and Paul takes 59 delegates to the convention. Divine justice at work….Many unbound Santorum delegates(196) that could go in any direction. The other states with bound delegates will be able to choose the second time around. This will be an emotionally charged convention. Hoping and praying they still have a debate in Texas between the three remaining candidates. Don’t think Gingrich will be in too much longer as he has a huge debt. Unless one of his gangster friends bails him out….

    If the media is so sure Ron Paul and his message are un-electable why then don’t they let people hear what he has to say? It seems to me that the media is too afraid to let his words out over the airwaves as they might awaken the people to the fact that we are slowly (not so slowly as of late) slipping into a socialist police state. We the people need to hold the politicians feet to the fire and have the laws of the Constitution enforced not the IMF’s puppet stautes and codes. The Fed needs to be abolished and expelled from this Country. How many Americans actually realize our government is in bankruptcy? How many Americans realize that the Courts in this country are actually corporations? Why not start to impose term limits on all political offices! Oust the incumbents and get people who serve us instead of themselves! Ron Paul is a true American hero speaking the truth regardless of popular opinion or media control.

    Just heard about Santorum withdrawing on our national radio program here in Australia (ABC Radio). Plenty of talk about Gingrich and Romney but absolutely nothing about Ron Paul. Bloody lemmings in our media here are just regurgitating the BS feeds from the US. Keep up the fight yanks!! Become delegates and give your country (and the rest of us in the free world) the US President we all need.

    I think Santorum left the race because the Republican Party asked him to. There was too much chance of a brokered convention. Santorum’s record and his own admission shows that he is willing to vote party line even against his conscious and principles – he even said it in one of the debates. So he is taking the hit for the party – wonder what he got in return? Santorum 2016?

    While I don’t like anything Santorum stands for or for any of his positions, I do have to commend him for giving up his political ambitions to take care of his daughter.

    All his bound delegates can now vote for the only congressman who really stands for freedom, Ron Paul.

    All I can say is things happen for a reason. Ron Paul is our last and only hope.
