hree full months after GOP-Libertarian candidate Ron Paul announced his presidential campaign would be "winding down", he's actually throwing in the towel for real. Yes, the man who spent over a year pledging to dismantle the United States military has finally ended his quest to be elected its Commander in Chief.

A drummer that supported building a 700 mile fence along the Mexican border because immigrants are the cause of all our welfare problems.
