    Texas lawmakers hail departing colleague Ron Paul as principled and visionary

    Sen. John Cornyn, R-San Antonio
    Ron has served Texans in Congress with distinction for nearly 24 years as a fierce advocate for a more limited government. His steadfast devotion to his core beliefs has earned him the respect and loyalty from Texans and Americans of all walks of life.

    I congratulate Ron on his remarkable congressional career, and wish him and Carol the very best in their future endeavors.



    Rep. Gene Green, D-Houston
    Ron has served honorably for different terms during the last 4 decades representing our area.



    Rep. Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land
    When he retires from Congress, Ron Paul will leave a legacy of principled leadership. As we say in the Navy, I wish Ron “Fair winds and following seas.”


    Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Houston
    Ron Paul is a true and honest intellectual in the House and a good friend. In many respects his policies turned out to be very visionary on the core role of the federal government and spending.



    Rep. Larry Taylor, R-Friendswood
    Congressman Paul’s announcement today not to seek re-election has created a rare opportunity for public service at the national level.
    I have received encouragement from conservative leaders across Texas this afternoon. It is an opportunity that I will consider very seriously in the coming weeks

    I'd hope so, but my gut tells me he's going to start winding down things a bit...maybe just writing a few things here and there for Lew Rockwell or maybe even Mises.org.

    lol @ Sen. John Cornyn. What a farce.

    yeah, and almost every one of those with the kind words is breathing a huge sigh of relief that the gadfly is finally gone. Who is going to be the single vote in the 434-1 votes now, the one who thru his actions names them all cowards?

    OK.. This one had nothing at all to do about praise... Instead, it's a guy simply saying how he'll run for Paul's seat.

    Depends, do you consider becoming president to be activist work?
