Ron Paul: Thomas Jefferson of Our Day?
In his latest video, Tom Woods explicitly states that Ron Paul is under an enormous amount of pressure to endorse Mitt Romney under the guise of helping Ron’s son, Senator Rand Paul. Rand endorsed Romney on June 7. Will Ron Paul resist the pressures to endorse an anti-liberty, warmongering, neoconservative Republican presidential candidate?

I am one of those individuals whose life was radically changed because of the liberty philosophy Ron Paul espoused in the 2007-08 presidential election cycle. Endorsing Mitt Romney would be a heartbreaking change of events. However, as Tom Woods said today, “I have excellent reason to believe that there is zero chance Ron Paul would endorse anyone like Romney. I do not have the same confidence in every individual who has his ear, though.” Ron’s greatest weakness is with whom we trusts in his “inside circle,” whether it be with Campaign for Liberty or his presidential campaign (Jesse Benton and John Tate are noteworthy in this category).
Stay strong Ron, and follow the same guiding principles that brought you to this point and built the revolution that we have today. If you maintain that through this election process and resist the temptations of the establishment and those that would profit off your political games, you will indeed be a prime contender to be the Thomas Jefferson of our day.
