Ron Paul’s Appeal to the Youth

It might perplex some people that Ron Paul has rekindled the youthful lewrockwellspirit in our movement, but it is also a wonderful sign that he was able to do it. It means that today’s young people are more interested in the timeless ideals of freedom than superficial questions of red states and blue states, political parties or culture-war talking points and trivialities. It means they are willing to challenge their parents on the question of whether, in fact, it is time to repeal the 20th century – all for the sake of the 21st.
The kids are all right. They don’t need 90’s-style political correctness, 80’s-style intergenerational conflict or 70’s-style hedonism. They want liberty, and that’s the song Ron Paul is singing. The youth get it, even if some libertarians still can’t figure it out.

Ron Paul’s Position Is Correct: Drug Criminalization Is Neither Compassionate Nor Conservative

The War on Drugs is not compassionate or conservative. It is morally lewrockwellbankrupt, coercive, corrupt, and unconstitutional. That’s right: Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution did the Founders give the government authority to wage war against the consumption of an arbitrary list of substances by the American public. There is no excuse that can justify the needless lives lost and destroyed through this draconian public policy. Alcohol prohibition was tried and proved to be a miserable failure. It’s time once and for all to bring an end to America’s failed experiment with drug prohibition as well.
Conservatives are supposed to stand for the Constitution, liberty, and limited government interference in individual lives. The War on Drugs is incompatible with a free society, and the fact that Ron Paul is the only conservative candidate running for the White House in 2008 to recognize that is troubling to say the least.

Ron Paul fights corporate greed

It is unfortunately accurate to say that Ron Paul is unusual, because it has been quite some time since a politician has had the moral soundness to be honest with the people. Likewise, it is a sad state of affairs to suggest that someone who fulfills their oath of office by strictly adhering to the Constitution that they were sworn to uphold, is unfavorable.

Ron Paul Campaign Aiming for Third Place in Iowa

One of the most telling indicators such campaigning will reveal is whether it changes Dr. Paul's current unfavorability numbers. Most pollsters have those numbers at over 50%. However, this kind of figure is to be expected for a relatively unknown candidate, which Dr. Paul still is for most Iowans. As the volunteers help people get to know him, that number could fall precipitously. If that happens, watch out! Iowa and America could be in for a surprise.

Secrets ... And A Shocker For Iowa Primary

At a recent Rudy Giuliani rally, the Paul supporters virtually outnumbered the Giuliani crowd. All of this tells me that what looks like 6 percent of the vote for Paul in states like Iowa could easily, especially where turnout is low, move toward double digits. From what my friends in Iowa are telling me, Huckabee or some other candidate may emerge the winner, but the big story that night may be that the contrarian Paul could find himself placing ahead of some really big names. Time will tell.

Paul's Quixotic, Chaotic Run May Make Its Push in N.H.

Last week, it was volunteers belonging to the Paul group at MeetUp, an WASHINGTON POSTonline networking site, who organized an evening of phone calls at Paul's headquarters here before watching the GOP debate together. It was the same volunteers who organized a day of canvassing by 60 supporters Saturday, a frigid day so windy that a gust toppled the huge Christmas tree outside the State House in Concord.
And it is the same people who have churned out tens of thousands of Paul fliers from a Merrimack printing press co-owned by supporter Linda Lagana to sell at cost to Paul supporters around the country, separate from the mailings being paid for by the campaign. Recently, the head of Paul's largest MeetUp chapter in New Hampshire, Jim Forsythe, paid $70 to create a glossy one-page "open letter" praising Paul. Lagana's press rolled off 1,00o copies of Forsythe's letter to be stuffed into the monthly newsletter in Forsythe's town of Strafford.

Ron Paul vs. A Nation Of Suckers: Why We Won't Listen To One Man's Common Sense About Terrorism

How crazy is this: we're acting from trauma, but in the fog of rhetoric, to bc ploiticsalleviate our pain, we're killing people innocent of the crime against us. Common sense has been replaced by madness. Our revenge fantasies even include torturing our enemies. We're so upset, we don't mind seeing ourselves as hooded clerics in the Spanish Inquisition. We're so upset, we'd rather spend a trillion bucks on killing people thousands of miles away than on paying our teachers better, or rebuilding our crumbling infra-structure.
Ron Paul, the lonely speaker of common sense, is out there, but we won't give him a fair hearing. We'd rather listen to clueless Rudy banging on about "going on offense against terrorism." We and our media just loves ourselves a jumbo dose of trauma. We just loves ourselves a deluxe helping of cowardice and macho posturing. We just loves ourselves a long draught of vengeance. We'd rather kill Iraqis — and our troops — than listen to common sense.
There is Ron Paul, loud and clear, saying the emperor has no clothes. And there is America, loud and clear, saying the emperor has the most fabulous sense of fashion.
Heck, maybe we Americans are terminally stupid after all.

The Ron Paul phenomenon

By far the most significant and interesting political story of the past 24 ron paulhours is the extraordinary, record-breaking outpouring of support for Ron Paul's presidential campaign. Therefore, it is being ignored by much of our establishment press — not a single article about it in The New York Times or The Washington Post (though it is discussed on a couple of their blogs ), nor even a mention of it on the websites of CNN or CBS News (which found space to report on Stephen Colbert's non-candidacy). But MSNBC and Fox News did at least both post the AP article on the Paul story.
Regardless of how much attention the media pays, the explosion of support for the Paul campaign yesterday is much more than a one-time event. The Paul campaign is now a bona fide phenomenon of real significance, and it is difficult to see this as anything other than a very positive development.

Iran Intelligence Report Highlights Need for Ron Paul’s Foreign Policy of Peace

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – For months, while other GOP candidates have 2008pushed for attacks on Iran, Ron Paul has rejected a pre-emptive attack and emphasized peace and diplomacy.
On June 5 at the CNN GOP debate in New Hampshire, the candidates were asked if they would support a pre-emptive strike against Iran using tactical nuclear weapons.
Each of the candidates responded that they would not rule out the use of nuclear weapons, except Congressman Ron Paul who said:
“I do not believe that [pre-emptive war] is part of the American tradition. We, in the past have always declared war in the defense of our liberties or [to] go to aid somebody.
“But now we have accepted the principle of preemptive war. We have rejected the just-war theory of Christianity. And now tonight, we hear that we're not even willing to remove from the table a pre-emptive nuclear strike, against a country that has done no harm to us directly and is no threat to our national security!

Dr. Paul's Patent Inflation Cure!

Dr. Ron Paul has a simple cure for inflation. It is so simple, in fact, that the entire text could almost be printed on a Post-It note. He's introduced HR 2756, also known as the "Honest Money Act."
The bill, simply stated (and it IS simply stated) would repeal the federal "legal tender" laws that give the federal reserve bank a monopoly on money. This would immediately allow competition because you and I would no longer be required by law to accept federal reserve notes as payment of debts.

Ron Paul Letter From a Soldier

Why are we the world's policeman when our own country is being fmnnopenly violated? Why are we borrowing money hand over fist from nations not exactly our friends, just to spend it on our out-of-control foreign policy? I am starting to feel like the powers that be do not have America’s interests in mind at all. It’s starting to feel like our ruin is their objective. From our factories closing and moving overseas, to the plunging value of our dollar, America is crumbling. Yet I love her far to much to watch her fall apart.
This is why I am taking my personal revolution and joining forces with Dr. Ron Paul’s revolution. His “bring all the troops home” non-intervention foreign policy and plans to put America first again are just what we need at this time in our history.

Will Ron Paul Double His Record Breaking $4 Million fundraiser On December 16th?

Given that last time 17,500 pledges equated to 4.3 million, 33,000 pledges could equate to just under double that amount, meaning an unprecedented $8 million super haul is definitely on the cards.
Should a figure somewhere in that region be achieved Ron Paul would have earned a whopping $18 million for the quarter, by far eclipsing the campaign target of $12 million and blowing his GOP rivals out of the water.
The Congressman is already the top GOP earner this quarter, having topped $10 million, doubling his own third quarter earnings.

Archer wrong about Ron Paul

Ron Paul is perhaps the most genuine candidate to have run for office in modern history…and easily the most forthright of any running for 08 (Republican or Democrat).

If Ron Paul returned funds from the unsavory few…then his opponents would be up in arms about how he is “supporting them” by handing them money.

Senator McCain

Senator McCain claims the troops want to finish the mission. Senator BLOGMcCain claims the troops told him this while visiting them over Thanksgiving. Senator McCain is somewhat mistaken.
I was a soldier. I served as an infantry paratrooper in Afghanistan and Iraq as a machine gunner and operations sergeant, respectively. I know soldiers. While serving in the military your normal rank and file soldier will rarely try to rock the boat, and the last thing they want to do is embarrass their chain of command. This isn't apathy as much as it is a survival instinct. When you depend on those in charge of you and next to you to save your skin then you try not to cause problems. This is probably why Senator McCain thinks the troops are completely on his side and the side of this illegal war.

Ron Paul: Right on Iran

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA - The National Intelligence Estimate on Iran, 2008released yesterday, reinforces Ron Paul’s position that a pre-emptive attack on Iran – an option advocated by other GOP presidential candidates – would be unwise and unwarranted.
Congressman Paul issued the following statement in response to the report:

“We needlessly and foolishly threaten Iran even though they have no nuclear weapons. I find it incomprehensible that as the failure of our Iraq policy becomes more evident, some want the same kind of policy toward Iran. A policy of peace, trade and diplomacy, is superior.”

The report’s finding that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 supports Congressman Paul’s view that military action against Iran is contrary to American national security.

Another 11 delegates will go to the statewide leader and three more will be unpledged.

The Ron Paul Revolution

In fact, in the last century, right-wing types had a simple way of describing patriotic congressional representatives like Ron Paul, who championed limited federal government, believed in natural rights, respected the oath they swore to uphold, and eschewed Wilsonian-style foreign policy. We used to call them “conservatives.”

Duh, It’s Called Voter Turnout.

Mitt Romney supporters are confused about what their candidate even stands for.
Rudy Giuliani supporters don’t know anything more than that supposedly their candidate was some sort of 9/11 hero; A fact which happens to be widely disputed if you talk to many of the real heroes, such as New York firefighters and police officers.
Fred Thompson supporters are probably all sleeping at the moment. Resting up for what? I’m not quite sure…
Mike Huckabee supporters are fooled in their own right. This man raised taxes as governor of Arkansas many times. He is not much of a conservative in any respect, not that the others are either. However, Huckabee is the only other republican candidate besides Dr. Ron Paul with any grassroots support of any kind, although it can be hard to find.

The fair tax: Who does it really benefit?

For those of you who are unaware, there is a proposal on the table to get rid of the federal income tax. Actually, there are several. Ron Paul has long been a proponent of doing just this. When asked what he’d replace it with, his answer was honest and to the point: nothing!
When a purchase is made using the credit card, the sales tax is applied to the sum charged to the credit account, and becomes a part of the balance upon which interest is charged. Trillions of dollars a year in purchases are made using credit cards. Now imagine adding 25% - 32% to that figure. So who benefits from the fair tax becomes instantly very clear.

From an October 2007 "Middle American News" interview, asked about the napa valley registerhow Paul could reduce the size and scope of government, "The first thing to do is to focus on overall spending. Bring the troops home from around the globe, stop policing the world, and use the savings to eliminate deficits and tide over those who have become dependent on the welfare state, while allowing younger people to opt out. ... If people continue to expect government to take care of us from cradle to grave, then it will be impossible. But if we spread the message of freedom, tell people that we can eliminate the IRS, keep the fruits of our labor and regain local control, then we can cut the size of government in half."

Ron Paul: On Illegal Immigration and Border Security

I have also supported the strengthening our border and increasing the texas straight talknumber of border patrol agents. It is an outrage that our best trained border guards are sent to Iraq instead of guarding our borders. For national security, we need to give more attention to our own border which is being illegally breached every day, and yet the government shirks one of its few constitutionally mandated duties, namely to defend this country. Citizens lose twice with our current insecure border situation – we don’t have the protection we should have, and then taxpayers have to deal with the fallout in the form of overstretched public resources and loss of jobs.
The anger is understandable when it comes to illegal immigration and the problems with our borders. I will continue to fight in Congress for more effective ways to address these issues in keeping with the Constitutional mandate to protect America .

A Ron Paul Set-Up By RedState?

ast week's outrage over the YouTube-driven debate that CNN hosted for Republican presidential candidates ended with a curious offer from the conservative blog RedState. Along with the conservative publisher Human Events, RedState invited the GOP candidates to "a do-over debate" with the same format but purportedly on more friendly territory. The curious part is that RedState included GOP underdog Ron Paul on the invitation list. RedState's leaders so dislike Paul that they have banned his supporters from commenting at the blog. That makes RedState's debate offer sound at least as hostile, if not more so, as CNN's proved to be, at least for Paul.

Ron Paul is a baby elephant

But perhaps the best explanation of the Paul phenomenon came from salonRammelkamp, the young man from Long Island who had taken on significant credit card debt for the Paul campaign. He told me that to understand Paul, I had to think of the American people as a baby elephant, chained to a tree. "It realizes that it can only walk 5 feet in each direction. It realizes that it is a slave. When it grows old enough, it is strong enough to break away from the tree. But it doesn't know." He pauses, to let this sink in -- the American people are a captive animal unaware of its own power to claim liberty. "When was the last time you tried it?" he asks me of breaking free. "Maybe you are strong enough."

Political gospel of Paul

The Nov. 21 piece in The Times piece mentions that online news content WASHINGTON TIMESon Mr. Paul routinely draws "hundreds of responses, many of them angry and nearly all of them accusing major press outlets of ignoring Mr. Paul." I don't know about "angry," but there has been a yawning gap between Mr. Paul's huge Internet presence and his anemic mainstream coverage. After he suddenly raised $ 4.2 million on Nov. 5, the media had to pay attention. But there has been little coverage otherwise, and the overall tone is still subtly dismissive. For example, nobody calls Mike Huckabee's campaign "quixotic," yet Ron Paul has raised 7 times more money than Mr. Huckabee this month alone.
Has anyone bothered to ask why, if there is no mainstream blackout of Mr. Paul, none of the other candidates has the same level of grass-roots Internet activity? You would expect them to have more. Don't their supporters have computers too? Why does Ron Paul generate 12.9 million hits on Google when runner-up Hillary Clinton can't even come close with 7.45 million?

Long shot Paul pushes individual freedoms

The obvious problem is that many of his supporters prefer cell phones to the gazetteonline.comland lines so they aren't contacted by pollsters, Paul, 72, explained during a recent visit to Cedar Rapids. Other supporters don't show up on pollsters' call lists of "likely caucus-goers" because they are young and have never caucused, or they are Republicans who have dropped out of party activities for a decade or more, the 31-year Texas congressman added.

Follow the Words of Paul

At the recent CNN/YouTube Republican debate, a question was asked of lewrockwellthe candidates: Would Jesus use the death penalty?

Yet any Christian who has bothered to read any of Jesus’ word would realize that Jesus would not support the death penalty. I am sure we are all glad, as Huckabee pointed out, that Jesus is not a politician because chicken-hawks, such as Huckabee, probably would not vote for him.
