At the 2012 Republican National Convention, Ron Paul told Fox News interviewer Neil Cavuto that Paul had no plans to endorse Mitt Romney or anybody else in the presidential election. Instead, Paul, who competed against Romney in the Republican presidential primary, said he endorses “the principles I have been talking about for a long time … peace and prosperity and individual liberty, the Constitution.”
Indeed, since leaving the United States House of Representatives in 2013, Paul has continued to dedicate much effort to promoting these principles through his chairmanship of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity.
Despite Paul having won several states in the presidential nomination contest and, as Cavuto notes in the interview, Paul having been greeted at the convention “as a rock star,” Paul had no opportunity to present a convention floor speech.
Romney, who ended up losing to President Barack Obama in the 2012 general election, announced last week that he is running in Utah for US Senate.
On Thursday, once-again-candidate Romney will be attending an Iron County, Utah Republican Party dinner. And who will be the keynote speaker at the event? Ron Paul.
Expect Paul to discuss in his keynote speech topics including Paul’s views concerning peace, prosperity, liberty, and the US Constitution. Hopefully, Romney will listen carefully. It is never too late to learn.
