Ron Paul Will Not Support John McCain

I saw this article this morning and let out a big cheer. Ron Paul will not be supporting John McCain for President. This is some of what he had to say...
Republican Rep. Ron Paul told the Tribune this morning he will not back Sen. John McCain as his party's nominee unless the Arizona senator "has a lot of change of heart."

"I can not support anybody with the foreign policy he advocates, you know, perpetual war. That is just so disturbing to me," Paul said.
"I think it's un-American, un-Constitutional, immoral, and not Republican."
Amen. John McCain has said that he wants America to be in Iraq for at least the next hundred years...and some people say that Ron Paul is nuts, LOL. This is a crazy idea.

I also know that this non-support of McCain, if he turns out to be the nominee, will not sit well with most of the GOP party bosses. They expect party loyalty until death do us part. Most people submit to these demands, but Ron Paul will not, it sounds like.

I can't support mcCain for other reasons. The war is a good reason, but for me it's our border policy and economic/montetary policy that are the deal killers for me with McCain.

    Ron Paul had better start worrying about getting renominated to congress. He is being challenged by Chris Peden for the Republican nomination. See http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/Ron_Paul_Will_Not_Back_Mc/2008/02/12/72098.html?s=al&promo_code=4511-1
