Ron Paul's website says he is ending his campaign according to this story today. I am truly saddened by this development, I was hoping he would launch an independent bid for President. It's too bad he didn't seek the Libertarian candidate nomination, as he had already done in 1988. He would have probably got 2 or 3 percent of the vote and really put Libertarianism on the map. Still, Mr. Paul should be credited for making the word "libertarian" more of a household word. I think 50 or so years from now, Libertarians will be thanking Ron Paul for starting them down the path to electoral victory.
