Ron Paul: "I'm Trying to Save Republican Party"
Ron Paul said he has no intentions of dropping out of the race for the Republican nomination for president. Appearing on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday, Paul said he is sticking around to "save the Republican party."
"There’s no way I’m going to give up on the effort to get the Republicans back to their roots,” he said. “You know, probably, in some ways they say, ‘Well, why don’t you give up and this will help the Republican Party.’ The truth is, I’m trying to save the Republican Party from themselves because they want perpetual wars. They don’t care about presidents who assassinate American citizens. They don’t care about searching our houses without search warrants, and these are the kind of things that people care with about, and if the Republicans would take a different position, they may save themselves, but right now, I see they’re going to be in big trouble."
