The Real Meaning of The Ron Paul Revolution

Like Ron Paul, these revolutionaries do not run because they are power hungry or wish to become famous. Rather, they run because they are in a fight to preserve America’s freedom. They, like their Founding Fathers, restore power to the people.
This is why Dr. Paul’s campaign is called the “Ron Paul Revolution.” There is absolutely no way to stop it. These revolutionary “troops” have already been recruited, and their numbers are likely to be many more than 10,000 strong. As people wake up and become increasingly disgusted with the status quo, the number of revolutionaries will only increase.

An Open Letter to Pro-War Libertarians on Behalf of Ron Paul

To my fellow libertarians who happen to be war-mongerers and lewrockwellObjectivists (or do I repeat myself?):
I know you hate Ron Paul. He's against the Iraq war. And he's skinny, to boot. And a Christian. And likes babies. Yuck.
But hear me out. I'm giving you a chance to save face. I know many of you are a bit embarrassed by your previous pro-Iraq war stance, and by being lumped in with the likes of Bill Maher and Christopher Hitchens. You want a way to save face, but still look macho.

An Interview with Ron Paul

Doug Casey: Why would the typical American, who gets far more from the daily reckoninggovernment than he or she pays, even consider voting for Ron Paul?
Ron Paul: Even those Americans who receive a higher nominal amount in transfer payments than they pay in income taxes suffer from Big Government. Their standard of living is eroded by inflation, their wages are garnished by income and payroll taxes, their civil liberties are under constant assault, and their economic prospects are limited because of the drag the welfare-warfare state places on the economy. Furthermore, unless we reverse course quickly, future generations will suffer a declining standard of living and loss of liberty. Thus, I expect many Americans to vote for me not only out of concern for their own well-being, but out of concern for their children.

My dad on Ron Paul

As an amateur linguist and teacher of English, I want to point out that the nonpolitical meaning of "radical" comes from the Latin "radix," meaning "root." So the meaning of "radical" in the political realm means "one who gets to the root" of a situation or problem.

Jason Sheppard Named to Head Ron Paul Presidential Bid in Arkansas

"Jason has already proven that he knows what it takes to win a state-wide Republican primary. That is what we were looking for, a proven winner," said Assistant National Campaign Manager Debbie Hopper. Hopper was referring to the 2004 campaign where Sheppard managed a Republican U.S. Senate race here in Arkansas. Sheppard believes the lessons learned in that effort can help make Ron Paul a winner in the Natural State.

Fiscal conservatives may sink the GOP ship

This is great news for Republican candidate Ron Paul who is running on oc registera small-government platform. And fiscal conservatives are probably the reason his campaign coffers and poll numbers continue to skyrocket. In the long run his rising popularity should provide greater bargaining power in the GOP because the Republican Party’s chances to win in the general election are greatly diminished if fiscal conservatives walk away from the polling booth. And it could be devistating for Republicans if, as senor editorial writer Alan Bock mentioned in a previous blog, Paul bolts and runs third party after the primaries.

Holiday Cheer Means Wearing a Red Sweater

Huckabee Steals Ideas From Ron Paul
boston dailyHow peculiar. Just last week Ron Paul sat in front of some bookshelves and wished us a Merry Christmas and “an absolutely great 2008.” He also wore a red shirt as his family sang “Deck the Halls.” Now we’ve got Huckabee in a red shirt, wishing us a Merry Christmas and “magnificent Christmas season” as a Casio keyboard version of “Silent Night” plays in the background.
We like our boy Paul’s ad best, and not only because we’re biased. Huckabee enthuses about the importance of family and friends at this time of year, but he’s shot alone. Ron Paul’s entire brood shows up to personally sing to us as they decorate a white tree. And Mrs. Paul made some pumpkin pie!
We’re on to you, Huckabee. If you launch a blimp anytime soon, we’re calling shenanigans.

Ron Paul Comments on Mike Huckabee Commercial

Ron Paul was asked a typical media "sucker" question and responded beautifully. Ron Paul made mention of Sinclair Lewis' comment that "when Fascism arrives in this Country it will be wrapped in the Flag and carrying the Cross".
Sinclair Lewis put it most appropriately and Ron Paul was exactly correct in how he responded. Mike Huckabee reminds me of the typical "Elmer Gantry" style "Hell Raiser-Holy Roller".
Mike Huckabee will fall back in the pack after Iowa. The New Hampshire voters will hopefully be more sophisticated to see through Mike Huckabee's cloak of Religion.

WHO ARE THESE KOOKS?

But who are the other "kooks" supporting Ron Paul? What kind of people give more than $18 million in a quarter-year to a Presidential candidate that is almost universally ignored by the mainstream press? What kind of people give record contributions to a Presidential candidate that is lampooned by his fellow Republican presidential contenders?
For example, Mike Huckabee recently said he could support any of the other Republican Presidential contenders (including Rudy Giuliani), except Ron Paul. That means, Mike Huckabee would rather support a pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, pro-gun control liberal such as Giuliani than support the pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, pro-Second Amendment candidacy of Ron Paul. Why is that?
Furthermore, why are the entire major media and establishment Republican machine either ignoring or lampooning a distinguished Air Force veteran, medical doctor, and ten-term Congressman? What is it about Ron Paul that the elite are so afraid of?

Ron Paul campaign really taking off

And with the subprime mortgage meltdown and the dollar's value oc registercollapsing, another of Dr. Paul's campaign issues is gaining traction – his desire to abolish the Federal Reserve, an unaccountable, privately owned bankers' bank that inflates the money supply. This makes the dollars in your pocket, your savings, and your investments worth less and less each year as the politically favored recipients of the Fed's new money profit at ordinary Americans' expense. The other candidates, who have benefited from the status quo, ignore the issue, but Ron Paul has been fearless; clips of him grilling Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke at congressional hearings have been a surprise hit on YouTube.

Non-News Highlighted Over Paul's Historic Success

The corporate controlled media continue to show the world that they are not in the business of covering real news. Instead they prove yet again that they are in the business of creating a false reality for their viewers. Yesterday, the Ron Paul presidential campaign managed to raise over $6 million in one day, breaking John Kerry's previous one day fundraising record. Despite the amazing success, the corporate controlled media decided that it was more important to focus in on Hillary Clinton's image, Joe Lieberman's endorsement of John McCain and various banter being thrown back and forth between Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. Even when the media did talk about the Ron Paul fundraising story, they continued to refer to him as a longshot candidate that's trailing in the polls.

Jack Cafferty: Ron Paul’s “money bomb”?

Depends on which poll you are talking about. Do you mean the so-called lewblogscientific polls where the GOP party refuses to even name Ron Paul as a choice of candidates on the poll? Do you mean the poll that doesn’t name Ron Paul as a choice but his numbers and his supporter’s are forced to either choose “other” or “undecided” for lack of other options? Or do you mean a poll that only polls Republicans that voted Republican in 2004 which is a very poor reflection of his support? As a person who is very familiar with who is supporting Ron Paul, the real numbers are reflected in a cross section of Americans who are changing parties just for him. Independents, Democrats, Libertarians, Republicans, people who have never even voted before, and everything else you can imagine. A poll of card carrying Republicans, rarely even given the choice of Ron Paul as an option, is a pathetic reflection of his support. The polls are not a reflection of someone’s popularity, it’s just another tool of the NeoCons to manipulate people to tell them who to vote for.

I have not witnessed this excitement coming from the other campaigns even as Oprah Winfrey went on the campaign trail for Barack Obama or as Bill Clinton has continually campaigned on behalf of his wife Hillary Clinton or where Chuck Norris has come out in support of Mike Huckabee.

His victories have often been such routs—87 percent of the vote in the abc post-debate poll, for example—that some media outlets have spiked the polls or removed his name, and bloggers have wondered if his supporters were unleashing malicious web bots.

Ron Paul For The Republican Nomination [Andrew Sullivan Endorsement]

But the deeper reason to support Ron Paul is a simple one. The great andrew sullivanforgotten principles of the current Republican party are freedom and toleration. Paul's federalism, his deep suspicion of Washington power, his resistance to government spending, debt and inflation, his ability to grasp that not all human problems are soluble, least of all by government: these are principles that made me a conservative in the first place. No one in the current field articulates them as clearly and understands them as deeply as Paul. He is a man of faith who nonetheless sees a clear line between religion and politics. More than all this, he has somehow ignited a new movement of those who love freedom and want to rescue it from the do-gooding bromides of the left and the Christianist meddling of the right. The Paulites' enthusiasm for liberty, their unapologetic defense of core conservative principles, their awareness that in the new millennium, these principles of small government, self-reliance, cultural pluralism, and a humble foreign policy are more necessary than ever - no lover of liberty can stand by and not join them.

GOP hopeful attacks his party's positions
rj"He really makes you think," said 17-year-old E.J. Rudy, a senior who hopes to attend McAlester College in Minnesota next year.
In his campaign stop, Paul did what he always does: Stake out positions far from the standard Republican Party line. And that seemed to please Marguerite Mercaldo, whose 10-year-old grandson, Christopher Herrero, attends the Henderson school. "I'm very pro-Ron Paul," she said, adding that she is tired of the deficit spending and war promoted by the Bush administration.

CNN’s Jack Cafferty: Ron Paul’s “money bomb”?

Any time we mention Ron Paul’s name on the Situation Room, his cnnsupporters immediately begin writing into us in droves. They’re fanatic in their devotion to him and very appreciative of any mentions we have ever given him. It’s a phenomenon unique to Dr. Paul. We talk about all the candidates all the time but we never get a response to any of the rest of them like we get to Ron Paul.
Nevertheless, most consider him a distant long-shot and he’s stuck in the single digits in most national polls.
Here’s my question to you: If Ron Paul can raise more than $6 million in one day, how come he’s not higher in the polls?
Tune in to the Situation Room at 4pm to see if Jack reads your answer on air.

Leading the evil GOP into the light

Take back the Republican Party. Get involved. In many counties, the GOP is in a sorry state. They desperately need volunteers. They need precinct chairmen, they need help at the polling stations, and they need members to just show up at events and meetings. Become a delegate. If you’re a “Ron Paul Republican,” don’t feel like you aren’t welcome in the GOP. If you believe that the federal government should be fiscally conservative and limited in its authority over local governments and individuals, then you are a Republican.

Smear Campaign Backfires

Hard as the talking heads of the propaganda machine tried, they just couldn?t ignore Dr. Paul for long without continuing to make themselves look foolish. First of all, even though he attempted a shot at the presidency as the Libertarian Party?s candidate two decades ago, he has been a 10-term Republican congressman who won the early TV debates this year with simple logic, pointing out that government must obey the law, too, and the highest law of the land is the Constitution that nearly every politician not only ignores today but has never read in the first place.

Ron Paul's Tea Party Pulls in the Green

Paul has accomplished a couple of positives for the Republicans, the streethowever. He has returned the focus to small government, which has been a problem for the GOP. President Bush has been termed a "big government conservative" by some detractors. Moreover, Paul has attracted the support of some Democrats and many independents. His Web site even lists the cutoff dates to switch parties in order to vote for Paul in closed primaries.

Reader's Forum News media ignores Ron Paul

I have noticed the mainstream media's lack of reporting on presidential the athens newscandidate Ron Paul. Ron Paul is a top-tier candidate and deserves more mainstream news attention.
Seventy percent of the United States is against the war in Iraq. Ron Paul is the only candidate who voted against the war from day one and has a clearly defined exit strategy. He receives more cash from the military than any other GOP hopeful. He attracts huge crowds at his rallies. He raises far more money than other candidates who supposedly have a big lead over him in the polls. The money comes in the form of small donations, which indicates the broad and enthusiastic support he enjoys.

THE RON PAUL (FUNDRAISING) REVOLUTION...

And Paul is continuing to raise money -- largely small contributions from the nationindividuals who in many cases have never before given money to a campaign -- at a remarkable rate.
The congressman's campaign is dramatically exceeding fundraising expectations in the current quarter. The campaign's unreasonable goal of $12 million has been exceeded by more than 50 percent already and there is every reason to believe that Paul will almost certainly finish the quarter with more than $20 million raised.
Paul could well end up raising more than any of the other Republican contenders and providing the only serious competition for Democratic money leaders Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

If money bombs become vote bombs, Paul could be a force

Paul’s renegade appeal is remarkably elastic. A bit of Eugene McCarthy with a dash of Ross Perot and a Jimmy Stewart delivery, he’s a magnet for anti-government sentiment, left, right and center. The fire in the heart of this campaign is his opposition to the war, but for many young, libertarian-leaning Republicans he also gives the clearest voice to their frustrations over the party’s big-spending, blundering-government ways. You can spot his bumper stickers in neighborhoods that otherwise divide cleanly, red or blue.
