Ron Paul supporters – have a seat. Grab a brew and some bud. Okay, is everyone comfortable? The reason I’ve asked you here is to tell you something that might be a little hard to take. Ron Paul needs to drop out of the race. Now, now, now. We all know it’s true. There isn’t a chance in hell that he can win. There never was. Don’t tell me about the media conspiracy. Wasn’t there another libertarian in the race, one who has basically the same views but isn’t a bats**t crazy racist? What was his name again? I rest my case.
Ron Paul has a job. We might not be paying him a lot, but he still works for his constituents and sort of for the rest of us, and we’re kinda getting tired of him calling in “running for President,” something he’s done 91.8% of the time since the start of the year. The country is getting better under the Obama administration, but there’s still a lot left to do, so Paul, who is one of the very few Republicans that isn’t owned and operated by the Koch Brothers and Grover Norquist, needs to lift a finger.
I know. In 2008, then Senator Barack Obama missed a lot of votes too. Actually, not that many, in perspective. He missed about 42% of his votes, while winning the Presidency. John McCain missed about 60% of his votes, while losing the Presidency. Ron Paul skips over 90% of his votes to really really lose the Presidency?
Maybe he’s just burned out. After January, Paul will be done being a Congressman. No one really works after they’ve given notice at their job, do they? Well, actually, I do and I typically only give about a month’s notice. He might be a lame duck, but he’s not dead. Texas is a crazy state, politically. Ron Paul might be the guy who spends his time shouting conspiracy theories at whomever will listen, but he’s still better than this guy, this guy and this guy. So, until Paul officially leaves office, it’s time for him to go back to Washington and do his job.
You may now all be dismissed. Or, if you want, you can just chill for a while.
