Former Libertarian Presidential Candidate (1988), current Republican US Congressman and self-identified (small l) libertarian-Republican Ron Paul is in “No Way” ready to endorse Mitt Romney.
From an interview on CNN aired 19 June 2012.
PAUL: . . . There’ll be support for our cause of liberty and for what we’ve been doing for a good many years.
BLITZER: Your son, Senator Rand Paul, has endorsed Romney. I take it, you’re not yet ready yourself to endorse Romney, are you?
PAUL: No. Not ready.
BLITZER: You’re not ready?
PAUL: No way.
BLITZER: When you say “no way,” what’s stopping you? Because you obviously appreciate the fact he’s going to have 1,144 delegates that will put him over the top.
PAUL: What’s he going to achieve? (laugh) I think it’s legitimate for us to continue the debate. I know they don’t want the debate at the convention. Everything has to be smooth and proper. But, you know, I help pay for the convention. Because the taxpayers pay Republicans 18 plus million dollars, and Obama gets 18 plus million dollars, to have these “grand parties.” I think we should be serious and discuss differences. . .
