Ron Paul talks to Lew Rockwell about his possible presidential campaign, and recent committee hearings with the likes of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. During the conversation, the Congressman provided an update into his thinking, in regard to another run for president.
RP: "I've been as up front as I can on this... And I do feel a bit of personal obligation to so many who have placed a fair amount of trust in me to continue this fight. So, it is a possibility, as it always has been. But it also is a major, major decision on my part. For personal reasons, political reasons, and it just is very tedious... I ask if I could have help in traveling in a private plane. Which makes it much more effective- I can get more places. And it seems like that was well received. We raised a significant amount of dollars that will help. I will be going on Monday, and I can make three major cities in Iowa all in one day and still get to Washington. I mean, the efficiency of this is unbelievable! Not to talk about, you know, staying out of the groping hands of the TSA. But then I go back to Iowa a little bit later on in March, as well as I am going up to New Hampshire. So, obviously, that has some implications. Maybe when I finish all those trips I will feel better about it, and feel energized enough to take it on myself again, to make that decision." (start at 11:57)
