Ron Paul

One time Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul will be holding his own convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota over the weekend. GOP candidate John McCain tried to exclude Dr. Paul from attending the Republic convention being held in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the Texas Congressman said.

"I didn't expect much and I didn't get much, because they don't want somebody there who will emphasize where they're coming short," he said in an interview.

Paul had to move his convention to a large venue due to the numbers slated to attend.

"They're lining up for the next fight, and they're going to have better numbers and they're going to know the rules better," he said.

But Paul said he would not endorse anyone seeking to challenge Republican incumbents in Congress.

"It's just not the kind of thing I think I should do," he said. "There's a certain political comfort of just getting along with people."


Paul has refused to endorse McCain and said he won't vote for the Arizona senator or his Democratic rival, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, in the November 4 election.

Instead, he's considering third-party candidates, though he said he won't tell his followers who they should vote for.


Paul has been a main supporter of one's right to gamble online though he himself does not support gambling. Instead, the issue is about freedom of the Internet.

"I believe strongly that the internet should not be regulated by the federal government and believes even more strongly that people should be free to engage in the activities they wish, as long as they are willing to take responsibility for their actions," he told Gambling911.com.
