A courageous fight nears its end

It looks like Ron Paul is going to bow to the inevitable.

GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul is hinting to supporters that he is ending his long-shot campaign for the presidency.

The Texas Republican congressman addressed supporters in a 7 1/2- minute video on his campaign Web site Thursday night and did not specifically say he was quitting the race.

He said that although victory in the conventional political sense is not available in the presidential race, many victories have been achieved due to the hard work and enthusiasm of his supporters.

He said that he hoped that one day he and his supporters could look back and say his campaign was a significant first step that signaled a change in direction for the country.

Paul said their job now was to plan for the next phase of their effort.
Vaya con Dios, my friend. You're someone I look up to and admire. You're courageous beyond description. You've endured the slings and arrows of the "real" Republicans and the establishment media and still shined. You showed class and dignity at all times. You are to be admired. I am, sir, proud to have been your supporter and will support you going forward in whatever you do. You are of the same caliber as our founding fathers. You are a giant in an era of midgets. Thank you for showing the country that there is another way, that we don't have to succumb to the inevitable march to One World Socialist Utopia. Thank you so very much.
