Ron Paul Won't Endorse Romney, Sees "Essentially No Difference"

"No," he said, plainly and unequivocally, when asked about an endorsement. Neither the GOP challenger nor President Obama will change the course of fiscal and monetary policy that is leading to what has been called the "fiscal cliff," Paul said, because both are captive of special interests. And neither will act to stop the Federal Reserve from papering over the growing chasm of debt by inflating the money supply in a policy called "quantitative easing."
The elder Paul, a 77-year-old retired obstetrician, is leaving Congress at the end of this year, having decided not to run for another term. Though a Republican throughout his career, he bolted the GOP to run as the presidential candidate of the Libertarian Party in 1988, drawing less than one percent of the popular vote. In an interview on the Fox Business channel last week, he hinted he might vote this year for the Libertarian Party candidate for president, Gary Johnson, the former two-term governor of New Mexico.
"There are other people who are technically capable of winning because they're on a lot of ballots," Paul said about alternatives to Romney or Obama.
"Like Gary Johnson, for example," the interviewer suggested.
"Yeah," Paul replied, though he did not say whether he would endorse or vote for Johnson
