Did you feel that? It's as if a million nasally voices cried out in terror and were suddenly even more silenced. Ron Paul released a statement that he's ceasing primary campaigning…
As I reflect on our 2012 Presidential campaign, I am humbled by the supporters who have worked so hard and sacrificed so much. And I am so proud of what we have accomplished. We will not stop until we have restored what once made America the greatest country in human history…
Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted. Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have. I encourage all supporters of Liberty to make sure you get to the polls and make your voices heard, particularly in the local, state, and Congressional elections, where so many defenders of Freedom are fighting and need your support.
I hope all supporters of Liberty will remain deeply involved – become delegates, win office, and take leadership positions. I will be right there with you. In the coming days, my campaign leadership will lay out to you our delegate strategy and what you can do to help, so please stay tuned.
Shorter: I'm dropping out. Please, nerd minions, move out of your basements and do something with your lives.
Ron Paul will stop campaigning, but he's not 100 percent done. He will still be engaging in the "obscure process of delegate allocation on the state level." Which is another way of saying, he's taken a more measured approach to losing.
