I wish Dr. Paul all the best in his run for the presidential nomination. I don't expect him to win but it's nice to hear the message of liberty, and this time around there will be two people on stage in the debates (when allowed) spreading the message...Dr. Paul and Governor Gary Johnson. Hopefully in 2016 we can get it up to three people (if there is anything left to get up).

I also wish him a long and quiet retirement with his wife and family. He certainly deserves it and its probably past due.

I think it should be pointed out that Dr. Paul is probably at the height of his influence after almost 40 years. He gets more TV air time than he did 4 years ago, he has the chairmanship of a committee, he is not the one being kicked off the stage in the debates this time around (that would be Gov. Johnson), his son has been elected to the Senate....yet he is going to retire after this last presidential campaign. And he is not going to participate in the congressional retirement benefits.
