Ron Paul Supporters - Time To Call It Quits

Ardent Ron Paul supporters are going around the country attempting to amass delegates to the Republican National Convention, even through Congressman Ron Paul has no chance of becoming the Republican nominee for President.  It is democracy in action; but for what purpose.   Governor Mitt Romney has the delegates he needs to win the nomination on the first ballot.  Some of these Ron Paul supporters hope to disrupt the process to the degree possible.  That would be unfortunate and reflect poorly on Congressman Ron Paul.  It is time for Ron Paul supporters to call it quits and accept defeat.   It is what it is. 

More important, though Romney is a born again Conservative, there is no disagreement in the Republican Party related to the need for limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, achieving a balanced budget and paying off our National Debt, all keys tenets of the Paul campaign.   Certainly,  Mitt Romney is much closer to Ron Paul's ideology than is Socialist President Obama.   Where there is significant divergence relates to our national defense.  Ron Paul is an isolationist who believes that the United States should retrench back to our borders. 

That would not be the position of most Conservative Republicans.  Though there is always room to cut fat out of the military just like any other federal government function,  Mitt Romney is for a strong national defense and a military that is second to none in the world, the same position advocated by Ronald Reagan.  Given the threats that we face around the world and the lessons of history, Mitt Romney has it right.   

Senator Rand Paul, Ron Paul's son has endorsed Mitt Romney and his father should do the same if he hopes to have any influence on a future President Romney, or within the Republican Party.  We don't need any distraction at this point that the lame stream, left wing media will use to advantage Obama.   We must all keep our eye on the ball and our goal to make Obama a one term President and sweep Socialists at all levels of government out of office in 2012 and 2014.   The only way, Ron Paul can be successful in terms of advancing his ideology is if we succeed in electing Conservatives in 2012 and 2014.  As such, it is time for Ron Paul and his supporters to throw in the towel and get behind Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee.
