Texas Congressman and three times presidential candidate Ron Paul gave his farewell speech in the House of Representatives, announcing his retirement from Congress and politics in general. Paul has served in Congress a total of 23 years during three periods: 1976 to 1977, 1979 to 1985, and 1997 to 2012. For many Americans, Ron Paul is seen as the greatest anomaly in the US politics - he has been a strong advocate of returning to gold standard, shrinking the government, lowering taxes, getting rid of the Federal Reserve, and restoring Americans' right "to drink raw milk whenever we want it". And yet millions of Americans really love Ron Paul, especially the young ones - he certainly will be remembered for his footprints left in American politics and their hearts.
To say goodbye to Ron Paul's long political career, photoshop him any way you wish.
