> Whoa! What a year this has been. And what achievements we have had. If I
> may quote Trotsky of all people, this Revolution is permanent. It will not
> end at the Republican convention. It will not end in November. It will not
> end until we have won the great battle on which we have embarked. Not
> because of me, but because of you. Millions of Americans — and friends in
> many other countries — have dedicated themselves to the principles of
> liberty: to free enterprise, limited government, sound money, no income
> tax, and peace. We will not falter so long as there is one restriction on
> our persons, our property, our civil liberties. How much I owe you. I can
> never possibly repay your generous donations, hard work, whole-hearted
> dedication and love of freedom. How blessed I am to be associated with
> you. Carol, of course, sends her love as well.
> Let me tell you my thoughts. With Romney gone, the chances of a brokered
> convention are nearly zero. But that does not affect my determination to
> fight on, in every caucus and primary remaining, and at the convention for
> our ideas, with just as many delegates as I can get. But with so many
> primaries and caucuses now over, we do not now need so big a national
> campaign staff, and so I am making it leaner and tighter. Of course, I am
> committed to fighting for our ideas within the Republican party, so there
> will be no third party run. I do not denigrate third parties — just the
> opposite, and I have long worked to remove the ballot-access restrictions
> on them. But I am a Republican, and I will remain a Republican.
> I also have another priority. I have constituents in my home district that
> I must serve. I cannot and will not let them down. And I have another
> battle I must face here as well. If I were to lose the primary for my
> congressional seat, all our opponents would react with glee, and pretend
> it was a rejection of our ideas. I cannot and will not let that happen.
> In the presidential race and the congressional race, I need your support,
> as always. And I have plans to continue fighting for our ideas in politics
> and education that I will share with you when I can, for I will need you
> at my side. In the meantime, onward and upward! The neocons, the
> warmongers, the socialists, the advocates of inflation will be hearing
> much from you and me.
