Paul To Surprise Again?
The campaign reached the $1 million mark last night, a full day ahead of real clear politicsschedule. Paul won't outraise any of the front-runners, but the frugality with which he is running the campaign, as well as the fervency of his supporters and his presence in Iowa and New Hampshire, mean that he will be one second-tier candidate unwilling to drop out before the nominating process takes its course. Paul could cause some serious problems for the front-runners, and it looks increasingly like he will have the money to compete in at least a few early states.

"Internet Candidate," Fund Raising Outpaces Better-Known Rivals in last-minute 3Q Dash
Ron Paul, the Republican congressman from Texas, has raised more than a wiredmillion dollars this week from his supporters, much of that through the Internet. Ron_paul_2008_3q Fund raising is a key barometer by which the political world measures a candidate's campaign success.
Up until now, Paul has been noted as a long-shot candidate because of his low polling numbers.

Ron Paul vs Status Quo - I Sing the Body Politique
Now, here we are all these years later, and I can't help but wonder what the country would be like had Americans awakened from their slumber and elected Ron Paul in 1988. With another election year around the corner, a host of hopefuls touting the same old, same old have cast in their hats for the top office. The only noticeable difference is that this time there is actually someone worthy of my vote, and he happens to be a Republican. Therefore I have done something I have never done before, and registered as a Republican so that I can support Ron Paul in the primary elections. Wow, I've never voted for a Republican before... sorry, Dad, but you're the one who always told me to do the right thing.

And there were those who scarcely paid attention to politics before discovering Paul, many driving hundreds of miles for the hour-long rally.

Why a Ron Paul Revolution? Thank Congress!
hank Congress and the political course our leadership has been following since the Wilson Presidency. Many of the people (remember “We the People”), believe the Constitution is being adulterated and power is being usurped away from the people, communities, and States. Growing numbers of the population are disgruntled and concerned their rights are disappearing. They are starting to remember their duty, to protect the Constitution. They see Ron Paul as the only candidate with the history and willingness to help them fulfill their duty. We only need to briefly review the news each day to see Congress at work helping to increase these fears.

Paul says Constitution is cure for nation
Ronald Reagan said it right, "The federal government has taken too much tax money from the people, too much authority from the states, and too much liberty with the Constitution." He also stated, "Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem." Ron Paul, the "Champion of the Constitution" agrees.
Reagan himself said of him, "Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country."

liv: Ron Paul GirlAs an adult, however, I’ve finally started to realize that welfare never actually helped my family. What would have really helped is if there had actually been some incentive for one or both of my parents to get up off the couch and get a job. That’s what would have helped them, by giving them some sorely needed sense of self-worth. It would have helped us kids, too, by teaching us how to take care of ourselves. And it would have helped everyone else, by removing the burden of having to foot the bill.

Translating Ron Paul’s Internet Success into Real VotesRon Paul
We have to get people prepared and convinced, that the presidential election for Ron Paul occurs earlier than November. It occurs in January and February on a state by state basis.
Let me repeat that for rhetorical purposes. Ron Paul’s Presidential Election is in January and February, not November.
If you have to be a registered Republican to vote in your state’s primary for Ron Paul, then for goodness sakes register as a Republican, now. Its a meaningless label now anyway for so many reasons, just do it.
Look up your state’s Republican primary election rules and be sure your ready.
Even if you have traditionally voted Democrat, that cannot stop you from voting in the Republican primary, either. In fact this is all the more reason.

Sustainable Profile: Ron Paul
Ending the Federal Income Tax. This issue alone could easily sway many votes from people who keep feeling the mounting pressure of taxes. This would require cutbacks in government spending to their 2000 levels according to Ron Paul [My previous date of 1992 was that given to resolve the total national debt, not to end the Federal Income Tax]. There would be fewer services offered by the government, but if this was jointly accomplished by his removal of control over money by the Federal Reserve Bank (a private corporation) the corresponding increase in the value of the dollar along with elimination of the general income tax could prove to be a highly beneficial move.

America According to Ron Paul
Many people hear that Ron Paul wants to the end income tax and opednewseliminate the IRS, they like the idea but can't understand how this could possibly be done. He believes that income tax isn't necessary to pay for government services, and by cutting spending overtime it could be eliminated. He said, “Few people know that every penny of the income tax is used to service federal debt.” He went on to say, “If we stop incurring debt, we can quickly end the IRS.” A limited constitutional government with low taxes, one that doesn't interfere in the business of other nations, sounds good to me. Ron Paul has always been on the front lines fighting for our privacy, freedoms, and liberties. Whether it be his opposition to the Patriot Act or the National ID Act, he understands the importance of a free society and recognizes that the biggest threat to it is the government itself. One of the great things about Ron Paul is that it doesn't matter if you find a quote or statement he made yesterday, two months, or five years ago-his principles and philosophy have remained consistent and true to the constitution.

Ron Paul at Morgan State
Was the Tavis Smiley-moderated Republican debate last night the best-lew blogrun, most interesting one so far? It got off to a slow start, but then it was unfailingly interesting as well as fair and balanced: much better than FOX, CNN, or MSNBC. Benito, Mitt, Fred, and McCain boycotted this African-American oriented forum (which was noted in a far more understated and therefore successful fashion than at the also-boycotted Christian right forum).
But what fun to see Ron Paul get the most applause, again and again, and to see his opponents wrinkle their noses at it. I loved Ron's attacks on drug prohibition, the criminal injustice system, capital punishment, the war, and the costs of empire, and so did the audience.

What the Fed Has Done to Us
Mr. Chairman, the situation facing us now in the mortgage industry has its lew rockwellroots in the Federal Reserve's inflationary monetary policy. Without addressing the roots of the current crisis, any measures undertaken to improve the situation will be doomed to fail.
As with asset bubbles and investment manias in past history, the fuel for the current housing bubble had its origins in monetary manipulation. The housing boom was caused by the Federal Reserve's policy resulting in artificially low interest rates. Consumers, misled by low interest rates, were looking to consume, while homebuilders saw the low interest rates as a signal to build, and build they did.

Ron Paul vs. the Neocon Cowards
Let’s say it straight out: Virtually every architect and supporter of today’s Lew Rockwellneo-con-game of endless war is a coward.
Why? Because anyone who advocates a policy of military invasion, yet studiously avoids joining the soldiers on the battlefield, is, by definition, a coward.
What kind of a person believes that a cause is worth (someone else) dying for, yet not only refuses to face the "enemy," but remains, at all times, in the cool shadow of security? I’ll tell you what kind – a coward. What kind of a person can’t wait to send America’s youth to die in Iraq for a series of absurd, constantly evolving fabrications, yet finds it more prudent to receive lobbyists than to fire a rifle? I’ll tell you what kind – a raw coward.

Congressman Ron Paul Introduces "The Tax Free Tips Act"
Washington, DC - Congressman Ron Paul has introduced legislation that Ron Paul press releaseswould ease the tax burden on some of America ’s hardest workers – those in the service industry. The Tax Free Tips Act of 2007 H.R. 3664 would exempt tips and gratuities from federal income and payroll taxes. Tips often compose a substantial portion of the earnings of waiters, waitresses, and other service-sector employees. However, unlike regular wages, a service-sector employee usually has no guarantee of, or legal right to, a tip. Instead, the amount of a tip usually depends on how well an employee satisfies a client. Since the amount of taxes one pays increases along with the size of tip, taxing tips punishes workers for doing a superior job!
Not only that, but the IRS estimates how much in tips an employee should have received and taxes them based on that, whether they actually received that amount or not. This should stop.

Thus, any candidate who challenges the very essence of the welfare-warfare state is branded an 'extremist' by the economic illiterate and/or pro war commentators in the media."

Since June, Ron Paul has placed among the top three Republican candidates in 21 of the 25 ‘real world’ straw polls!
To all those who doubt that Ron Paul could win the Republican nomination red pillsfor president in the real world, I say, “take a look at the ‘real world’ polls and become a believer.” Of the 25 ‘real world’ straw polls conducted since June* 2007, we find that Dr. Paul won nine of them, came in second in five of them and third in seven of them. That is, he came in among the top three candidates in twenty-one of the twenty-five straw polls! Ron Paul is a real candidate in the real world with a real message that is reverberating across America!

The Ron Paul Campaign is Becoming Deadly Serious
Ron Paul vs Clinton. Get used to it. That's what is going to happen. No other GOP challenger has a shot against Hillary. This campaign is not about some Quixotic attempt to spread a message. It's about winning the Presidency (but first the GOP nomination).
Things are happening. Very good things. The fundraising in the past week has been stunning. The support he's been getting, even on the west coast was better than imagined. Freedom is popular and the timing couldn't be more perfect.

Most Bizarro Ron Paul Hit Piece Yet
Via Freedom Democrats, here’s a piece reporting on a Ron Paul rally that is among the most bizarre and naked pot shots at a candidate I think I’ve ever seen, and that’s saying something.
The author is Thomas F. Roeser, chairman of the editorial board of The Chicago Daily Observer. The piece is called “Ron Paul’s Rally: Appalling and Appealing.”
Hitler!

This is how many quarters of the Republican establishment view us? It’s unbelievable. We’re trying to SAVE their party, and they’re comparing us to Hitler Youth? Our message is “the State shouldn’t run our lives and justify its own expansion based on fear and hysteria”, and his take-away from that is “isn’t that just like the Nazis?” The utter befuddled, incoherent, and naked contempt with which this guy and his ilk view us is jaw-dropping.

Ron Paul- the Right Man at the Right Time for America
If you're currently a registered Republican and are concerned at all about the disastrous direction in which the Neocons in the GOP are leading this Country- and you should be- your concerns certainly won't be addressed by any of the so-called "top tier" GOP candidates:

  • Giuliani- Pro-Gun, Pro-Abortion on Demand, Pro- Amnesty;
  • Thompson- A Neocon through and through;
  • McCain- Architect of the Shamnesty Bill which would have rewarded illegal aliens for invading America;
  • Romney- a waffler in the mold of another Massachusetts liberal, John Kerry.

None of these four are a friend to traditional conservatives- Giuliani is an unabashed social progressive- and so was Romney until he decided to run for President. No one really knows where Thompson is coming from (we only certain that he "is not a churchgoer"), and McCain wanted to open the flood gates and allow tens of millions more across the border from Mexico.

DOBSON IS RIGHT ABOUT GIULIANI - By Pastor Chuck Baldwin
In fact, as a whole, the Religious Right continues to ignore Ron Paul's candidacy, even though he would probably be the best friend that conservative Christians ever had in the White House. Alas, however, there seems to be a giant disconnect in the thinking of many conservative Christians as to the primacy of constitutional government and how it relates to religious liberty.
"I lived in NYC for most of my life. Giuliani was the worst mayor the city has ever had. I and millions of New Yorkers [are] well aware of Giuliani's duplicitous, mean, autocratic, and just downright scary personality. His father was a small time mafia enforcer that did prison time.

When I first saw him in the early Republican primary debates, I could not believe what I was hearing. An actual, honest-to-God, traditional Republican Presidential candidate. A candidate espousing the traditional conservative values of small government, low taxes, sound money, non-interventionism, free trade, national sovereignty, secure borders with a fair path to citizenship that discourages illegal immigration, personal responsibility, state's rights, and individual liberty. I had honestly believed that I would never see a politician with those beliefs ever again. I was instantly hooked and I immediately sent $100 into his campaign. I have never donated money to a political candidate before.

Ron Paul: The Money Has to Come From Somewhere
Printing more money is the Fed’s typical answer, but we are on the verge of runaway inflation. We have printed so many dollars now that we are at texas straight talkparity with the Canadian dollar for the first time since 1976. Since the Fed stopped publishing M3, which tracks the total supply of dollars in the economy, we can’t even be sure how many dollars they are creating. Reported inflation is around 2%, but the method for calculating inflation changed in the 1980’s, largely at Mr. Greenspan’s urging. Private economists using the original method find actual inflation to be over 10%, which matches more closely the pain consumers in the real economy feel. The reality is that this type of manipulation of the markets masks where resources, or money, ultimately comes from. It comes from the taxpayer. The government doesn’t create Gross Domestic Product, they just limit and control how it is done. They then absorb much of the value produced in the economy through taxation and inflation, so they can squander our nation’s wealth with runaway spending.

It's little wonder many liberals think he's appealing. Paul opposed the Patriot Act and says President Bush has "run wild" in spying on Americans.

When we got to the mainland, they had his car pulled up, and put him out over the bow railing. Some of us managed to make it off the Ferry and get lined up so he drove off between a line of signs and chants. I am sure Rudy will not forget his trip to Mackinac for awhile. There were lots of camcorders among us, so I am sure some footage of it will hit Youtube soon.

Is Terrorism a Mortal Threat?
Since 9-11, 100,000 Americans have been murdered – as many as we lewlost in Vietnam, Korea and Iraq combined. Yet, not one of these murders was the work of an Islamic terrorist, and all of them, terrible as they are, did not imperil the survival of our republic.
Terrorists can blow up our buildings, assassinate our leaders, and bomb our malls and stadiums. They cannot destroy us. Assume the worst. Terrorists smuggle an atom bomb into New York harbor or into Washington, D.C., and detonate it.
Horrible and horrifying as that would be – perhaps 100,000 dead and wounded – it would not mean the end of the United States. It would more likely mean the end of Iran, or whatever nation at which the United States chose to direct its rage and retribution.

"The WTO has now been able to come to our Congress and dictate to us, cnnwe as a Congress, and as a party has endorsed the idea that we should raise taxes on certain corporations at the directive of the W.T.O in order to satisfy and be upstanding members of the W.T.O.," The GOP presidential hopeful said Saturday. "We should never raise taxes period, but certainly because the W.T.O. tells us to do so."

What Makes a Bush Supporter?
By believing in a “greater good,” by embracing the power of the state, dpand by assuming that patriotism meant resolutely backing my leaders, even when pitted against my fellow citizens, I was actually adopting the same characteristics that had defined communism and other totalitarian movements before me.
With every passing day since my day of awakening, I feel that I am becoming more Republican and more conservative than I have ever been.

"The other Republican candidates are good men," said Dr. Ivers, "but 08when it comes to a record of fidelity to the Constitutional principles of "Limited Government", they are still all students compared to Ron Paul. And with 65-70 percent of Americans polled now opposing the War in Iraq, if the Republicans nominate a pro-war Republican they may just as well hand the White House over to Hillary Clinton."
"I relish the thought of a series of national debates between Mrs. Clinton and Dr. Paul and will be pouring my energy into helping Iowa Republicans see the power of his nomination," continued Ivers.

They Live To Run (Your Life)
Speaking of Hucksters, Mike Huckabee, a man who has never seen a day lreof military service, wants to send more soldiers to die in Iraq to obtain "peace with honor." He wants you to pay for it because, as he said in New Hampshire, we all need to pay for the mistakes of a few power-crazed neoconservatives who have hijacked this country's foreign policy. If we didn't all share in the costs, we might have to place the blame squarely on those who actually ordered the aggressive invasion of Iraq. Isn't this ironic? Ron Paul can explain the concept of blowback and it is characterized as "blaming America." Which is more appropriately characterized as blaming America; Ron Paul's statements on the dangers of faulty policy, or the forcing of Americans to finance and die in wars which they do not approve?

Ron Paul and America's Financial Future
The national debt of the United States is now over nine trillion dollars, on its way to ten trillion by the time President Bush leaves office. The unfunded liabilities of the Social Security and Medicare entitlements programs are several times that amount, in the fifty to seventy trillion dollar range, depending on who is calculating them. David Walker, the comptroller general of the United States, puts it bluntly:

I would argue that the most serious threat to the United States is not someone hiding in a cave in Afghanistan or Pakistan but our own fiscal irresponsibility.

Peter Schiff: It's no secret that America became the world's wealthiest country because we had no taxes…I mean, that's the key. That's the key-- you want to keep taxes as little as possible. If for no other reason, is that the less taxes there is, the smaller your government. And you want to keep government to its absolute smallest size possible, because the bigger it is, the more damage it's going to do. So if you don't feed it very much, then it's not going to be able to hurt you too much.

Ron Paul – I like his ideas but they are not practical. I hear this all the lrtime. Many people like Ron Paul's views, but for some reason, they have decided that liberty is not "practical" and freedom is a "luxury" we cannot afford anymore. But deep down, they really wish it were different. It can be different. The answer is right in front of you: Vote for Ron Paul. The other day a person said to me that they really liked all of Ron Paul's views and ideas, but why vote for him if he can't win? That logic confounds me. Was the person really saying that it makes more sense to vote for someone you don't like, who will get into office and hurt you, just because he has a better chance of winning?

Message from Ron Paul
Our American way of life is under attack. And it is up to us to save it.
2008The world's elites are busy forming a North American Union. If they succeed, as they were in forming the European Union, the good ol’ USA will only be a memory. We cannot let that happen.
The UN wants to confiscate our firearms and impose a global tax. The UN elites want to control the oceans with the Law of the Sea Treaty. And they want to use our military to police the world.
Our right to own and use property is fading because bureaucrats and special interests are abusing eminent domain.
Our right to educate our children as we choose is under assault. "No Child Left Behind" is seeing to that. And our right to say "no" to forced mental screening of our school-aged children is nearly gone.

"Instead, the RJC is asking those writing in to pay a membership fee, but what incentive is there for Ron Paul supporters to support an organization that is so clearly single-minded?

More reasons why the GOP is alienating conservatives
Further reasons why the Republican Party is driving people away: GOP Straw Polls, after finding that Ron Paul was the leading candidate, decided to eliminate his name from among the list of candidates. When the name of Ron Paul was replaced by 'None' as a choice, 'None' was in the lead. I am sure this caused no end of embarrassment and distress to the party loyalists and so the choice 'none' was deleted from the poll. Now, it looks as though they are getting results more to their liking, with Romney in the lead when I last looked. Nothing like fiddling with the poll to get the desired result.

But "fighting the terrorists over there, so that we don't have to fight them here" is not sound foreign policy when such men come here, precisely because we are over there.

Golden Ron
Monetary policy in general and the gold standard in particular are tough to understand. The concepts are abstract and the chain of logic convoluted. That said, the gold standard is hardly the radical policy its opponents claim. For one, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan likes gold. In 1966 he wrote:

In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value….This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights.

But why should the US return to a gold standard. Things are pretty good, right? Nathan Lewis, author of Gold: The Once and Future Money, explained why in an interview with Reason Magazine. He said that while “the U.S. was on a gold standard from 1789-1971…America’s middle class got wealthy, [it] went from being dirt farmers to being the most prosperous middle class the world has ever seen.” Since Nixon took the country off the gold standard in 1971, middle class earnings have, after adjusting for inflation, “been going nowhere; to the [extent there’s been progress] it’s been because households have had two earners instead of one.”

Ron Paul Versus U.S. Foreign Policy
We need some history here. The Eisenhower/Goldwater/Reagan school lrof Republican conservatism held that individual liberty was the highest political goal and that the federal government was generally inept at managing the economic and social affairs of society. This is why old fashioned conservatives believed in free enterprise, tax cuts, balanced budgets, and school vouchers, and why they were skeptical about government regulation and interventionism, including and especially foreign military interventionism. Even George W. Bush ran in 2000 on a basically conservative platform but he abandoned the bulk of that platform when the looney neo-conservatives hijacked U.S. foreign policy.

A gut reaction to this "extreme" treatment by the press is that the tjbsmessage of limited government is not extreme at all — it's mainstream and the press coverage is extreme. After all, it was the message of limited government that got Ronald Reagan elected way back when. Remember, as a cadidate he promised to abolish the Department of Education, though he failed to follow through on that once in office.

TNA: At age 72, you are the eldest presidential candidate. Yet your tnacampaign is being supported by large numbers of young people. What seems to be the draw for them?
Ron Paul: I continue to be amazed at how many young people are interested in our campaign and by how smart and informed they are. I think they come because they see what they are poised to inherit and they aren’t happy. We are handing our children countless trillions of dollars of debt and mortgaging their future. If we don’t do something, this will be the first American generation that lives more poorly than their parents. Young people want to be free; they don’t want the government running their lives; they want to be able to opt out of the entitlement system; and they want to be able to take care of themselves.

Ron Paul Debate Thread Responses
I'm having a hard time watching these "so called" debates. They're not fmnndebates at all. They are baited invitations to answer pointed questions. If some of the so called, top tier, candidates are choosing to pass on these minor debates, I'm not so sure Ron Paul would be well advised to follow suit. Ron Paul's messege is factual, simple, and easy to understand, IF he is given the opportunity to articulate it, which he isn't.

Ron Paul Places Second in Values Voter Debate
Although religious conservatives may like Huckabee's doctrinaire agreement on social issues, his record in Arkansas should dampen their enthusiasm: as governor, he increased spending by 65 percent in eight years, and his mixed positions on illegal immigration may account for his slow start in the fundraising race.
Social conservatives should also consider carefully the true limited-government platform of Ron Paul. Even if social conservatives gain enough power at the federal level to force their values on everyone, the gains will be fleeting and subject to reversal at the next election. A federal government constrained to its Constitutional limits, as Ron Paul supports, is the only government that can be trusted to respect all of our freedoms.

Ron Paul Inspiring New Civil Rights Movement
Texas Presidential candidate Ron Paul is inspiring a new Civil Rights usadmovement for the 21st century. Not since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has a political figure emerged to champion civil rights on such a grand scale.
Unlike the racial turmoil during America’s period of segregation and the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, Paul’s message doesn’t evoke resistance from a large segment of the population; and it appears to be unifying people of various backgrounds.

Democrat, Republican... or American?
We are gearing up for another Presidential candidacy in 08, and we are opedSTILL hearing the same pathetic mindless droning of either parties candidates on most issues, (with a rare exception, Presidential Candidate Ron Paul, a true American, and someone you NEED to educate youeself on) and we are seemingly falling in line, believing that the "lesser of two (or 20) evils" (criminals) is no longer still evil or criminal.
A majority of thinking Americans want desperately to believe that "someone" will make a real difference in America, but do we allow self delusion and propaganda to hamper any hope of this "someone" actually materializing? How about if the "someone" that really needs to step up to the plate and be heard is YOU? Will you step up and act Democrat, or Republican, or AMERICAN? Will YOU support the violation of Constitutional law, or will you stand firm on law and not be hoodwinked into making another horrible choice based on a horrible socialist, communist and fascist agenda?

Any amendments must be available for at least 72 hours before a vote. The Sunlight Rule provides the American people the opportunity to be involved in enforcing congressional rules by allowing citizens to move for censure of any Representative who votes for a bill brought to the floor in violation of this act.

Ron Paul is running at five percent in New Hampshire and garnering plenty fmnnof press and debate attention nationwide. Bill O'Reilly just featured him and CNN, as has been reported, also sought to have him on the air. 60 Minutes is reportedly doing a feature on Ron Paul.
With so much attention being paid to one candidate, albeit not a "front-runner" it makes little sense for a major Internet poll to remove his name. The poll itself, rather than Ron Paul, risks a long, slow slide into irrelevancy.

And, even if he hasn’t, even a failed presidential run can be lucrative; it bolsters his celebrity, which he can parlay into speaking fees, book contracts, and possibly talk radio or TV gigs. Besides, a man with an ego the size of Keyes’ can’t resist the attention.
That the establishment is now turning to an also-ran like Keyes to help deflect attention from Ron Paul shows how scared and desperate they are – and it shows they’re about out of options.

Rod Dreher: How far will we go to save face in Iraq?
Beware pride masquerading as honor among war backers, warns ROD dmDREHER
It was left to Ron Paul, who has virtually no support, to point out that the Iraq war is a disaster and that the GOP is destroying itself with its catastrophic war policy. Mike Huckabee shot back: "Even if we lose elections, we should not lose our honor, and that is more important than the Republican Party."
To which Mr. Paul replied hotly: "What do we have to pay to save face? That's all we're doing, is saving face. It's time we came home."
That exchange was the most important of the debate, because it explains the GOP's self-destructive paralysis on Iraq – and America's. I don't think many Americans would say that the U.S. is going to win this war, not in any meaningful sense. The minimal security gains made by the surge are unsustainable absent real political progress, which hasn't been made and which is by now a fantasy.

Ron Paul on the Constitution
We are becoming more and more of a welfare state in every aspect. Economic, corporate, militarily, or any other way in which the citizens rely on the government. This is partially due to schools teaching that big government is OK. This has affected the entire attitude towards government. Instead of calling for privacy, instead of enjoying a peaceful prosperous nation, we enjoy wars over fear that a third world country is going to create a national security threat. We need to change this attitude from the complacent reliance on the government to an attitude of self reliance and self responsibility. We need to legalize the constitution. Then we will see change in rule of law.

And yes, Dr. Paul is against abortion, a devout Christian and many other things that we all (including me) do not agree with all of the time.

The society we live in now does not protect us from this at all; it facilitates this kind of oppressive rule.

Ron Paul: The Real "Rock Star" of the Right
I was astonished at the intensity of his supporters in our audience. I was amazed at their lengthy emails to me huffsaying what a breath of fresh air he is in the presidential race.
So more power to the honest, anti-war, anti-intervention, pro-gold standard, pro-Constitution candidate from Texas who states, "It is not my responsibility as president to attack other countries".

Ron Paul has the guts to end the Iraq War
In a single sentence, Richard Reeves, from a recent article, HOW THE dpDEMOCRATS CAN (WILL?) LOSE says it all:

In nine words: Democrats don't have the guts to end the war!
He goes on to explain:
The two parties, though, do share one dirty little conviction: They both think the American people are uninformed morons. The Republicans think people are stupid enough to think we are winning this war. The Democrats think people are stupid enough to think they are actually against the war. In a just world, both parties would lose in 2008.
So this is Ron Paul's selling point - Ron Paul has the guts the Democrats don't have to end the Iraq War.

The Ron Paul Revolution: A Lesson in Free Market Economics
Necessity is the mother of invention, and there seems to be no end in sight to the inventions being created on a daily basis by individual Ron Paul supporters. These creations range from professional quality banners, signs, flyers and posters, to eloquently written articles across the web, and in local newspapers. On a micro level, the grassroots campaign efforts are a demonstration of the unregulated, free-market forces that Ron Paul espouses.A simple internet search will reveal a number of websites that are designed, hosted and paid for by individual Ron Paul supporters. These websites contain everything from news articles to video clips to products. Nearly all of this content is created or contributed by individual supporters. Need a t-shirt? Currently, there are dozens of different t-shirt designs produced by independent people. In addition, you can find stamps, buttons, bracelets, commemorative coins and even pizza-delivery-style illuminated car toppers. All of this in response to a huge demand in the marketplace, with innovative Ron Paul supporters rising up to meet it. There has been no external oversight committee or price controls.
There have been no marching orders from a central location. Supply and demand has taken over. The best products are passed along word of mouth through a decentralized web of email addresses and social networking sites. Local Meetups in various parts of the country are all passing out some of the same materials, no prompting necessary. It’s called “emergence.”

"Ron Paul!" they shouted. "Freedom!"
wiredInside, supporters could hear the passionate chants from the street through the thick hotel windows as the Texas congressman ended his morning speech. A polite chuckle rumbled through the room.
The breakfast attendees and the supporters on the street comprised mostly of young white men, who appeared to be white-collar professionals. Several of those interviewed by Wired News worked in the technology business.
As campaign finance records show and the blogsphere has noted, a substantial base of support for Paul comes from professionals in the technology community.

McVay: Ron Paul's presidential run isn't the usual GOP politics
So, obviously, the gatekeepers at Fox News are threatened by Ron Paul. oaThere are two reasons: The most obvious - Paul is a principled man with emphatic, growing support who threatens to upset the status quo among neoconservatives. He wants to get the GOP back to its roots, and neocon media-mongers and their supporters stand to lose a lot of money if a minimalist government is installed. Fewer federal agencies means fewer government contracts.
Secondly, if Ron Paul continues his snowballing success, Fox News can't take credit for it. Paul's support is grassroots, making efficient use of the Internet. A successful run by Paul would all but eliminate the conglomerate media's stranglehold in directing national politics, as free speech requiring neither a license from the FCC nor millions of dollars in advertising allows a wider variety of viewpoints to be absorbed by the masses.

Ron Paul Supporters Must Take Action How to get involved in the Primary!
Supporters need to know how their states select delegates, then they need to figure out how to work that system. For instance, here in Nebraska, delegates are chosen at our state convention, and delegates must declare their preferred candidate (and are bound to that for 2 ballots). That being the case, the appropriate strategy is to try to "stack the deck" at the state convention. To do that, you have to get people to the county conventions (where the delegates to the state convention are chosen), and you have to make sure that Paul supporters are elected to the national convention.

The No-Exit Strategy
One problem with "you break it, you own it" is the ambiguity of the pronoun. As Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) noted in his exchange with Huckabee during the debate, "you" did not invade Iraq; neither did "we." The president and his men made that disastrous decision, based on a ridiculously broad understanding of self-defense and willful blindness to the inevitability of unintended consequences.

I thought one of the Kent & Meetup Irvine 59funniest moments in Ron's speech before us at the cocktail party was his story of how some political hacks had tried to infiltrate his campaign headquarters to find out what the secret is for building hundreds of spontaneous Meetup Groups. As if they could duplicate this without a great message. Memo to hacks: someone like Giuliani, McCain, Romney, or Fred Thompson will never be able to generate the passionate grassroots support like Ron has because they have a crappy message of being George W Bush clones. That ain't selling right now. Save your money you're wasting trying to duplicate a strategy that will never work for your guys.

Your article says that Dr. Paul is “anti-gay marriage, and anti-abortion”. If you had taken a few minutes to listen to him on his positions, you would know that while he has personal opinions, he has taken strong and brave stands to uphold individual liberty, including for gays’ rights to have consensual contracts, and in his own words “they may call it anything they like”. Dr. Paul was a practicing OB/GYN, and through this experience he has said that he does not agree with abortion, but again, he has come out to say that it is none of the federal government’s business to pass a law about the issue either way.

On the evidence of this interview, Paul is a paleolibertarian in the vdarewww.lewrockwell.com mode. He accepts the need for an institutional framework for liberty, notably the nation-state. He is intensely critical of illegal immigration and birthright citizenship. He is much less focused on legal immigration (although obviously intrigued by the idea of guestworkers) and not at all on the H1-b visa issue, although many of his supporters are software engineers. We also discussed gold and exchange rates because, after years laboring in the vineyard of financial journalism, I felt like it.

Ending the War: A Question of Why
Ron Paul is not inherently anti-war, in fact if an enemy were a real threat to America, President Paul would have no qualms throwing every weapon in our arsenal at the enemy, if Congress first enacts a declaration of war. Ron Paul is opposed to the Iraq War because a declaration of war was not enacted by Congress. He is further opposed to it because it is a war that is not a defensive war, we were not attacked by Iraq and Iraq posed no threat to us and neither did Afghanistan. In response to the attack on our soil on 9/11 Ron Paul introduced marque and reprisal legislation which would have offered a reward for Bin Laden whom bounty hunters would attempt to capture. Instead we invaded Afghanistan loudly and Bin Laden easily slipped over the border, or so we think. Both the U.S. and Iraq would be much better off if Ron Paul's marque legislation had gone through.

Ron Paul & Roe v Wade
“Under the 9th and 10th amendments, all authority over matters not specifically addressed in the Constitution remains with state legislatures. Therefore the federal government has no authority whatsoever to involve itself in the abortion issue. So while Roe v. Wade is invalid, a federal law banning abortion across all 50 states would be equally invalid.”
With little doubt, Ron Paul is asserting that the 50 states would individually determine the issue of abortion. Thus, one would assume that Ron Paul would not take a solid pro life (anti-abortion) stance – nor would he take a pro choice (pro abortion) stance either.

Paul relishes being apart from the field, especially in talking about two favorite subjects -- Iraq and individual liberties. Of Democrats, he said: "They were elected to do something last fall, and they've done nothing. They've identified themselves as the party of civil liberties, and done nothing."
Nor does Paul have any sympathy for Republican "conservatives" who stress economic liberty but see nothing wrong with a government that pushes around its citizens. "You cannot have a Supreme Court that protects economic liberties and not individual liberties," he said.
On assisted suicide, talking as a physician, Paul said: "Taking someone's life is not something I want to get involved in." Yet, he describes legalization as "a state issue."
"I don't support abortion, but I don't want to pass any federal law to regulate it," he added.

" Pro-abortion, pro-tax, pro-illegal immigration, married 3x, pro-gun tnvrcontrol, and pro-big government doesnt constitute "conservative" at all. Also the way he and Romney kept up their incessant giggling and snickering during the last debate any time Ron Paul was asked a question was extremely unprofessional, disrespectful, and frankly disgusting. They should take a candidate who has more military donations than anyone else and wins every post-debate poll more seriously. The question assumes of course that he IS one of the best right out of the gate. An overwhelming number of firefighters and police in New York STRONGLY disapprove of the mayor's handling of that situation and have actively undermined his campaign. A number of people seem to think that Giuliani was somehow the "hero of 911," which ignores his multitude of failures on that day and the NYC residents and workers still bitterly displeased with his handling of the tragedy.

Ron Paul Wants To Eliminate What?
For those that find the elimination of this department preposterous today, trpbRonald Regan himself promised to find a way to eliminate this department during his presidency. He did it with the support of the republican party, and its pundits. He did try, but failed to do so. In fact, in 1979, at the onset of the act to create this department, the Democratic party opposed it. And yet, the same Republican Party believes it’s necessary today. A lot can flip flop in 25 years.
Have they been doing a good job? In my opinion, absolutely not. Ask those around you if they believe public education in America today is better than it was before 1990. How about before 1980? In my experience, most agree the quality of education has diminished significantly in the last 27 years. So it would seem the Department of Education’s existence coincides with the decline of American public educational quality. And yet for many of the years before it existed on its own, education quality seemed better.

There is another reason you should consider Ron Paul. He scares the shit recorderout of died-in-the-wool Republicans and Democrats alike. If Paul becomes President there will be a lot of change, and Washington is terrified of that possibility. All the candidates who make it a point to say they will change some things won’t actually if elected.
Paul is the only candidate within the party that has not authorized a vote for the Iraq war, and has been consistent on not intervening in the Middle East for years now. Paul realizes that all the politicians who had come before him and are trying to get a piece of the pie now never had a clue on how to rationalize the situation in Mesopotamia. He is a concrete thinker and understands that they want to kill Americans because we messed with them first and continue to occupy a region in which we grossly misunderstood the big picture.

Paul described Iraq as a "preemptive war" saying it was a "planned invasion and occupation" of a "country that was no threat to us whatsoever."
Part of the reasoning behind invading Iraq, Paul said, was "to have another excuse to keep the military industrial complex going."

RON PAUL FIGHTS POWERFUL PLUTOCRACY
The attack on Paul will begin in earnest when it appears he has an even afpremote possibility of winning. It will follow a fairly predictable path: The first step is already in play. The establishment will start by simply ignoring him, by using its power in the mainstream media and their influence over campaign donors. It will try excluding him from debates. This strategy is already failing. The Internet and talk radio are outside the elite’s direct control and are being used effectively by Paul to “get the message out.” The establishment will generate ridicule and fear mongering.
Paul’s ideas will be grotesquely distorted in establishment media “hit pieces.” They’ll say he wants to permit heroin use in public schools, or that he wants old people to die in the streets without their Social Security checks, or that he wants to allow greedy industrialists to dump toxic waste into your drinking water.

Ron Paul – 3 Political Positions Voters Must Understand
When Ron Paul calls himself a constitutionalist – he’s saying he follows a strict interpretation of the United States Constitution. A constitutionalist favors a small federal government, the rights of individual states, and a very limited role of the federal government in the lives of voters. Take a look at his political posisions on these three issues:

Ron Paul 'Dr. No' to make Utah stop on campaign trail
"It's building from all walks of life. It's not just Republicans or Libertarians saltlakeor Constitutionalists," Nelson said. "He's probably the only candidate who adheres to the Constitution. If the Constitution does not enumerate the power to Congress, he will not vote for it."
Nelson noted that Utah's predominant Mormon faith believes the Constitution is divinely inspired, "so anyone who adheres to the Constitution is worth supporting."
Lynda Robison, along with her husband, Vaughn, has started Internet-based grass-roots Ron Paul "meet-up" groups.
"What's amazing to us is how many young people, people who've never voted, young people, 18 on up" have joined the movement, she said. Robison said she is drawn to Paul because of his commitment to "following the Constitution," which she said is "the original Republican stance."

Algo esta cambiando con Ron Paul
La presencia de Ron Paul en las primarias incomoda a los neoconservadores por varios motivos: En primer lugar, las declaraciones de un libertario clásico como Ron Paul ponen de manifiesto las incongruencias de la ideología neoconservadora, que suele defender desde la oposición mercados libres con pocos impuestos, pero una vez en el poder no solo no reducen las presiones fiscales sino que ademas tienden a endeudar al estado con la carrera armamentística que han mantenido aun despues de la caida del regimen soviético. A esto se le suma que los neoconservadores, que se presentan así mismos como los defensores de la libertad en base a sus posiciones de reducir las regulaciones del mercado han sido los que más han reducido los derechos civiles americanos en toda la historia de la nación a través de la Patriot Act.

Ron Paul On Health Insurance: Your Thoughts
I would say if anyone if going to deal with the issue of health insurance prthen its Ron Paul. We must not forget that Ron Paul is actually Doctor Ron Paul, a doctor as in medicine. Therefore he knows the health insurance and medical industry. Although many claim that people in the US medical and health insurance industry are just after the money, Ron Paul is not one of those people, often offering his services free of charge.

9/11, SIX YEARS LATER
Plus, just as Ron Paul warned, the Bush administration and a compliant congress have used the 9/11 attacks as an excuse to assault the constitutional liberties of the American people. The USA Patriot Act has all but demolished the 4th Amendment, and has turned America into a virtual surveillance society. As far as liberty is concerned, we have far more to fear from Washington, D.C., than from Baghdad.

Why “Ron Paul Can’t Win” Won’t Last
But there is good news. Lately I’ve come to realize that this objection won’t be valid much longer as more and more people realize that he does in fact have a chance. “Ron Paul is unelectable” was a valid concern several months ago when he was completely on the margins, but since then his campaign has raised a healthy sum of money and is winning more straw polls than any candidate except Romney. Things are changing–perhaps slowly for now, but Ron Paul’s campaign will reach a Tipping Point soon. This “tip” will occur in the next few months and when it does it will catch nearly everyone by surprise.

Possible Goldwater Endorsement?
Media sources say that presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-Tex) may soon fmnnbe due an endorsement by someone from the Goldwater family's political wing. The endorsement, if it happens, is important because of the resonance of the conserative-libertarian Goldwater name.
In fact, it would provide a bridge from Barry Goldwater a five-term Senator from Arizona and the Republican Party's nominee for US president in the 1964 election, to Ron Paul who is is making increasing political inroads as the nation's current libertarian/conservative presidential candidate.

Ron Paul: Regulation, Free Trade and Mexican Trucks
Another NAFTA nail is about to be hammered into the coffin Washington is tstbuilding for the US economy. Within the next few days our borders will be opened to the Mexican trucking industry in an unprecedented way. A "pilot" program is starting which will allow trucks from Mexico to haul goods beyond the 25 mile buffer zone to any point in the United States . Officials claim this is being done with utmost oversight, but Americans still have their legitimate concerns. Rather than securing our borders, we seem to be providing more pores for illegal aliens, drug dealers, and terrorists to permeate.

Describing Ron Paul's supporters
First, it discounted Dr. Paul's prospects by omitting any reference to his csmsuccesses.
Second, the article marginalized his supporters by calling them "a motley group that ranges from gun lovers and tax haters to pacifists and libertarians."
To me, and I am one of them, they seem like regular (and very sane) Americans who want their country to be a model of self-control and democracy for the world, not an imperialistic power. They appear to live within their means and expect their government to do so as well. They are law-abiding and expect their government to be so as well. They love the truth and the freedom that comes from knowing it. They are generous and enjoy helping to solve societal problems without government/bureaucratic help or restrictions.

Government-Confiscated Education
Ron Paul advocates a step in the right direction by promising to shut down the Federal Department of Education. It wasn’t all that many years ago that we had the understanding that education is a local matter. Even then, however, education was not in reality local because so-called compulsory attendance laws had started showing up in the middle of the 19th century, making education a state matter. That was the beginning of the end we now suffer and so Ron Paul’s step is really only a first step.

Six Years Later
In the days, weeks, and years after 9/11, we have heard all sorts of redexplanations for why al Qaeda masterminded that horrible action. Bascially, the answers come down to two competing ones: al Qaeda came after us because they hate us for our freedom, or; al Qaeda came after us because they're upset with what we've done in their region of the world. The former is apparently the dominant one in the Administration today; the latter is the one promoted by Ron Paul today. David Henderson has a fantastic essay up today which discusses the inconsistency in these two views. Here's just a bit:

If gun rights are very important to you – you might consider.

They fear public reprisals in these feverish post-911 years, when PATRIOTISM has become equated, again and again, with blind support for a mixed bag of policies dubbed the "War on Terror"!

Paul has more money on hand than McCain, more charisma than Giuliani, is more genuine than Romney and has a stronger vision than Mike Huckabee, yet his campaign, as well as his message, is regulated to the back of the bus.
It is clear that Paul is not of this political world, and because of that he will be hated by those he threatens to dethrone. It is up to the grassroots to cut through this campaign of misinformation and finally take the mainstream media, and the country club GOP mindset, to the woodshed.

Because they are all part of the Statist Government Establishment that "theoretically" represent "we the people." It is a lie. Dr. Paul knows this and others are learning it quickly. If our elected representatives disobey our will then who do they represent? The answer is becoming obvious to more and more Americans. American Individuals are waking up. They are waking up to the message that we do not need Big Government or the State to control our lives. To paraphrase "V is for Vendetta," the government should fear the people…the people should not fear the government. This distinction is becoming clearer and clearer to more people. The new trend is in motion. There will be setbacks but it cannot be stopped.

The Ron Paul epiphany
Between now and November 2008, many Americans will experience the Ron Paul epiphany, in which the scales will fall from their eyes, and they wndwill suddenly realize that they do not want the nation to continue in the direction that George Bush, Hillary Clinton, Fred Thompson, Hussein Osama and Rudy McRomney all intend on taking it. At this point, a 1976 scenario looks far more likely than a 1980 one, but then, few pundits thought Ron Paul would still require consideration at this point in the campaign.
The choice is simple. If you want to live under an EU-style regime that is intent on invading and occupying other countries in the name of democracy for the foreseeable future, vote for any of the so-called major candidates. It doesn't matter which one. There is no significant difference between President Bush and Sen. Clinton, or between Sen. Thompson and Sen. Obama. If, on the other hand, you wish to live in a nation where the United States government is governed by the Constitution, you had better support Ron Paul. This may be your only opportunity, for it is entirely possible that this will be the last time such a choice is presented to you.

As he says, "It is, of course, very easy to be generous with the people's money." Ron Paul reminds us that under the Constitution, the "government exists to protect liberty, not to redistribute wealth or to grant special privileges." His view may be all too rare in Congress, but it was shared by another famous Congressman in our past, Davy Crockett.

In summary, we're all busy, but as we try to decide if supporting a political dp"lost cause" is worth it, consider that our real purpose in fighting a strategic battle (with losing odds) is to use the existing and ongoing crisis to help others see the evils of false conservative causes, and false leaders (wolves in sheep's clothing) and the hijacking of true principles for evil purposes. All of this helps us to prepare a "remmant" as Gary North calls them--people willing to see what's real and resist vigorously when the time is ripe. One of the first steps in converting good but partly blind people is to point them to something new and exciting that is happening in the truth movement. Right now that excitement is pointing to Ron Paul.

An inspiring story of a father introduced to Ron Paul by his 17 yr. old son
Who is Ron Paul and why is he inspiring a generation?
opedI first heard about Ron Paul from my then seventeen year old son.
He was so excited by this guy running for President that I actually went in to his room and sat in front of his computer to look at what had him so energised about politics, politics ?
That's the last thing in the world I had ever expected him to become excited about. So I listened and watched video after video, together father and son. Bonding in a way that still amazes me. I am forty four years old and here I was sitting watching youtube hour after hour with my son. Having incredible intellectual conversations with my kid. We talked about the constitution, we talked about abortion , we talked about the war in Iraq, the war on terror, we talked about our Goverment and the rights of the people, we talked about, Israel and world economies, that I knew he had never had any interest in before this incredible man made it so clear to him.
The most surprising thing of all was that it was me who was learning from him. From my son, I was learning about the Constitution, I was the one being schooled in Goverment and politics from a seventeen year old kid.

Maybe these guys are suggesting that the "paulities" are all sitting in their basements with a couple thousand cell phones (and paying for the service on each of them), rapidly dialing FoxNews, casting a vote, and then quickly canceling their subscription with the cell carrier before another $100 bill rolls in on each of those phones.
I mean... $200,000 for each of we "paulities" to spend, A MONTH, is a small price to pay for rigging a FoxNews poll, isn't it? Plus all those activation fees... the cost of the phones themselves... 15 cents for the text message... two year contracts...

The War Party
Quietly and miserably, like an anxious mother tiptoeing away from an rollingautistic child who has fallen asleep with his helmet on, the Republican Party continues its hopeless search for a viable nominee while backpedaling from its own disaster in Iraq. The candidates, all of them -- I exclude here Congressman Ron Paul, who is an uninvited guest to this ball -- are fourth-rate buffoons, not one of them qualified to hold down the last ten minutes of a weekday open-mike night in a Skokie comedy club. They are divided into two categories: those who try to avoid talking about Iraq by saying nothing at all, and those who try to avoid talking about Iraq by talking loudly about something else.

Ron Paul SMASH!!!
But without fail, every time Ron got a chance to speak, you could almost hear him cocking the shotgun, and every time he spoke he COMMANDED attention. Nobody is going to give Ron Paul the respect he deserves. But this is the first time that he’s actually shown he’s got the cojones to reach out and take it.
And what was beautiful about it is it wasn’t the person, the narrative, or even the campaign. Ron Paul, unlike mostly everybody else on the stage, was clearly the candidate driven by ideas, and all his answers reflected that. HE had a purpose, a reason for being there, and it showed. I remain of the opinion that people aren’t as dumb as we give them credit for. They know real leadership when they’re shown it, and Ron showed it.
People at one time talked about barring Paul from the debates. The other candidates look positively pained (or derisive) when he speaks. They have no idea how lucky they are that he’s sharing the stage with them. He’s good for us (the people that agree with him), he’s good for the party (whether they agree with him or not), and he’s good for the country.

Ron Paul Shall Overcome
Rep. Ron Paul was there and said some words about Russo the freedom fighter, and Russo's pet causes of abolishing the IRS (got a big round of applause from this Hollywood crowd) and the Federal Reserve.

Congressman Ron Paul Cosponsors "The Mortgage Cancellation Relief Act"
September 6, 2007 – Washington , DC . Congressman Ron Paul took pressaction today to shield American homeowners from an outrageously unfair IRS tax policy by cosponsoring The Mortgage Cancellation Relief Act. H.R. 1876 bars the IRS from considering partial mortgage forgiveness as income subject to taxation.
Now is not the time to increase the tax burden on struggling homeowners. Strict reins must be put on the IRS by Congress to limit as much as possible the damage it does to the taxpayer and to the American Dream

From this we may conservatively assert that Sean Hannity and other FOX questioners violated these journalistic ethical standards. They did NOT brand their interviews as "commentary or opinion" and attempted to "misrepresent", "distort", and prevent the "open exchange". Sean Hannity talks as if HE HIMSELF IS THE CANDIDATE. That is not reporting. That is distorting. This disqualifies Sean Hannity as a "professional journalist".

Confounding Policy Critics, Ron Paul to Make Major Int. Address
Confounding critics who deride his international policy approach as naïve fmnnor simplistic, the prestigious Johns Hopkins Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, D.C., has invited Ron Paul to make a keynote policy address on September 11.
Ron Paul will be speaking on “A Tradtional Non-Intervention Foreign Policy” – topic that has likely languished in most US international schools and think tanks in the modern era. Says one source close privy to the negotiations surrounding the invitation, “This school is engaged in a 20th century, interventionist, foreign policy approach. For them to invite him to make a major address like this shows how seriously his views are being taken by the educational establishment and by the political establishment in general,”

Our Country is Stuck in 9th Grade
Ron Paul is the only candidate in the Republican party, and dare I say both parties, with dynamism in his answers. I never get the feeling that the answer he's giving to a question has been rehearsed in front of a mirror or touched up by campaign advisers to maximize effect on voters. He has a core set of beliefs and a great understanding of the issues that are vital to our country, and he uses that information to form a unique answer to every question.

The demonstration of people taking it into their own hands to simply bypass them in their direct communications with the people has set them on their heels but they will regroup and try the only things that they know,… deception and force. But with the use of the Internet, every attempt is easily documented.
I learned yesterday that the Ron Paul campaign has had campaign staff contacted by various government agencies warning them of violations for the thousands of signs being placed. The campaign is truthful in responding that they have nothing to do with it and that there is no one in charge for them to control. So we can expect an example being made of someone around the country in an attempt to stop this free expression in support of saving this country.

Message from Ron Paul
My opponents called for more war, more torture, more secret prisons, 2008more eavesdropping, more presidential power. Some seemed to identify the government and the people as if they were one entity. But you and I know that once the government moves beyond its very limited constitutional mandate, it is an opponent of the people, a rip-off operation that takes our money and our freedom and our social peace, and gives us a mess of statist pottage in return.
The government failed miserably on 911 to protect us, despite spending trillions. So the answer was supposed to be the giant, socialist Department of Homeland Security, protecting you and me from taking our toothpaste on the airplane. I was ridiculed for saying that the airlines, which know best how to protect their property, should have been allowed to arm their pilots. But then, you and I really believe in the Second Amendment. It is not just a political slogan for us.

What's the Big Deal About GOP Candidate Ron Paul?
've heard republicans refer to Ron Paul as a breath of fresh air, and I've had democrats mention the candidate in a good light, even suggesting a party switch in order to help elect him. Then there is all of the excitement from the GOP debates that he generated, with his unbridled statements about the war in Iraq.

LAWFUEL - The Legal Newswire - ThinkRink Blog - It is obvious that, after seeing the Fox News Debates on Sept. 5th, 2007, the mainstream media and GOP see Ron Paul as enough of a threat to stop ignoring him, and to start ridiculing him. From using a split screen to show Giuliani smirking as Ron Paul answers his questions, to the background chuckles as he is asked questions, Ron Paul has apparently become the butt of an inside joke.

A Busy Week for the Front-Runner, Ron Paul
Ron has learned from that experience and plays to his strengths. He never lewonce backed down. He held fast in the face of ridicule and malice. His challengers will underestimate the affect this is having on Republican Party members who are undecided. He is, day by day, inch by inch, weakening the neoconservative hold on the Republican Party. By now, they have but one finger left and you can guess which one it is.
The tactics used this week against Ron Paul are further evidence that his candidacy leads the pack. There is no other explanation for the (unsuccessful) attempts to marginalize and ridicule. They’re fighting him but their kung fu is weak.
With each appearance and debate performance, Ron Paul gets better and his supporters grow more and more confident beside him. The idea that this campaign is merely an attempt to spread the message of liberty to a wider audience should by now be a laughable claim.
Ron Paul is in this to win. He’s a T. Rex hunting down and eating the competition for lunch. Bring napkins. This week Ron Paul has shown us that he has no serious competitors.

The Real Metric Indicating a Ron Paul Groundswell is Meet-Up

Barack Obama With 4,164 Supporters in 66 Meetup Groups from 55 Cities
Denis Kucinich With 1,522 Supporters in 50 Groups from 48 Cities
As far as I am concerned the only metric for a Groundswell of support for a Presidential Campaign in the United States today is their on the ground volunteer supporters. Fox news can talk all the crap they want this metric clearly indicates real boots on the ground national support for a candidate for President.

Ron Versus the Huckster
Antiwar Republican sets the terms of GOP debate
The Huckster, in answer, reached into his bag of emotional salves and antiwardemagogic snake-oil, and pulled out a Lincolnian trope to fit the occasion: "Congressman, we are one nation. We can't be divided. We have to be one nation under God. That means if we make a mistake, we make it as a single country, the United States of America, not the divided states of America. (Cheers.)"
Oh really? If the head lemming goes over a cliff, the rest have a patriotic duty – or is that a compulision? – to follow him. This is the red-state fascist Leader Principle drawn out to its logical conclusion: we must commit collective suicide – in the name of "unity." One nation, under the neocon hucksters who sold us a rotten bill of goods, indivisible, with climbing debt for all and war profits for the few. How convenient for the War Party– and how the Republicans are dreaming if they think they can get away with this, even with their alleged "base." Paul was speaking for a lot of rank-and-file Republican voters when he replied: "
No. When we make a mistake, it is the obligation of the people through their representatives to correct the mistake, not to continue the mistake! (Cheers, applause.)"

Fox News Angles for Rabid GOP Debate
Paul, however, happily stepped into Fox's trap. Paul remains the only thestreetantiwar candidate and doesn't mind saying the war is unconstitutional. He thinks the war was a mistake. Why continue a mistake when the cost of the war is high in both American lives and money? he asks. He appears to be the only GOP candidate who's aware that Iraq and 9/11 aren't connected.
Paul also seems to be the only candidate who opposes Bush's usurpation of power. He appears to be the only one familiar with concepts in the Constitution like habeas corpus or civil rights. I thought Mitt Romney didn't help himself when he said that the most important "civil liberty the government can protect is the right to keep us alive." The founding fathers might frown on a life without civil liberties.

Ron Paul: This Is A Man. Take Notes.
Think of it: Herr Huckabee's position is that Americans literally have a moral obligation to kill and die on behalf of a mistake: "Honor" requires no less. As an anti-Vietnam War activist in the early 1970s, John Kerry once asked: Who will be the last to die for a mistake? Huckabee's position, shared by the Red State Fascists in the audience and the GOP leadership, is essentially that it is the duty of Americans to kill and die for as long as their rulers decree -- even after the foolishness, corruption, and dishonesty of the policy is obvious.
This is pure, unfiltered cultism of an authentically fascist variety. Clearly, Ron Paul was the only sane man on the stage, which is why his statements were greeted with nervous laughter -- as demented as it was derisive -- by one of the cretinous fiends sharing that platform with him.

Don’t let them tell you that the situation is more complicated than you realize and that thinking you can just pull out of Iraq is naive. It’s not.

Ron Paul for President—if You Really Want Change.
Congressman Ron Paul’s contribution to American political life is more significant than those made by all the other presidential candidates—of both parties—combined. Romney, McCain, Clinton, Obama, et al, are dancing around the Iraq disaster that has cost 3,700 American lives, left maimed tens of thousands more, and provoked greater than ever hatred of America by the Islamic world. These candidates are ignoring the colossal failure of the government to stop the violent crime and depressed wages that are the bitter fruits of unfettered immigration.

Alan Colmes and Sean Hannity just suggested that Ron Paul's lead is because "the Paulites keep re-dialing." Wrong answer. Their system won't let you vote more than once. I tried--just to see. My second message came back to me with the message "you've already voted." Don't be fooled--those are UNIQUE votes, or at least UNIQUE phones.

Paul at the GOP Debate
In tonight's FOXNews debate, Ron Paul continues to provide strong contrast to the Serious foreign policy wonks and republican candidates. After stating that our presence in the Arabian peninsula was one of the three reasons Osama Bin Laden gave for the attacks on the US, Chris Wallace followed up with this:
Chris Wallace: So are you saying we should take our marching orders from Al-Qaeda?
Ron Paul: NO! We should take our marching orders from the constitution! Ron Paul continues to hold his own against Huckabee in a spirited debate.

Anyone who is attending or will attend school in the future. Anyone who pays taxes. Anyone who wants to reverse inflation. Anyone who wants to be make their own decisions regarding their health and well-being. Anyone who loves freedom and believes that the constitution was a tool to restrain the government. Anyone who cares about privacy. Anyone who wants to retain the right to self-defense.

American's Being "Played": Obermann Uncovers and Blasts Bush's deliberate Lies about Iraq
This is not partisan, this is a fact that should expel Bush and the neoconservative conspirators behind his propaganda from republican respect forever. Listen hard, as Bush is caught confessing that he is merely playing to buy time for the 2008 neo-republican candidates (Ron Paul being a legitimate republican) to get "comfortable" supporting continuance in Iraq, while 70 percent of the country is entirely against it. Presidential candidates in history have openly lied about not entering or continuing wars to win elections, and then a convenient excuse is given to suddenly break those promises.

Grassfire poll shows Ron Paul with the biggest gain
Rep. Ron Paul showed the biggest gain from Grassfire’s May poll, rising from seventh position (6 percent) to a solid third position (13 percent) – a more than a 50 percent increase in support among grassroots conservatives. Mike Huckabee’s support also rose, from 3 to 7 percent. “Paul’s rise shows that conservatives are not all that thrilled with the anointed frontrunners,” says Elliott. “Paul’s message is resonating with many conservatives, and it would be wise for the other candidates to take note.”

Proof: Fox News Censors Ron Paul
As we can see from the above table, the "fairest" coverages are from NYTimes, CBS News, and USAToday. Even though LA Times had a high ratio, if you were to exclude Rudy Giuliani from the group; it is actually pretty fair. The biggest culprit of fairness is Fox News. They refer to the top 3 candidates almost 5 times more than they refer to any of the other candidates. Mitt Romney was referenced 13,000 times on the FoxNews.com domain while Ron Paul has only been referenced 248 times. So for every 52.4 articles on Mitt Romney, there will only be one article on Ron Paul. That is absurd. On no other news source is the disparity as large as it is on Fox News.

The Other Side of the Force
In other words, the stock price of the Republican Party has plummeted. It is ripe for a hostile takeover. And the private equity firm leading the charge is the Ron Paul Revolution.
I have been to several Ron Paul meetups and observed something very interesting: few of the people there were registered Republicans. Most were unaffiliated, with a few Democrats thrown in. Scientific polls among “likely Republican primary voters” show very little support for Ron Paul, yet Paul wins most Internet and phone-in polls, has people show up by the thousand at his rallies, and has more money in the bank than John McCain.

Making the Maverick Mainstream: The Saga of Ron Paul
Paul is to be applauded for his commitment to limited government, the pro-life cause, and pro-family values. Paul's campaign notes that one of his Congressional colleagues once said, "Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers' ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are."
It shouldn't be surprising that, in 1976, he was one of only a handful of Republican Congressmen to endorse Ronald Reagan for President.
Paul could conceivably claim the Reagan mantle—but to do it, he must appeal to a broad base. And that may require moving out of the maverick camp and into the mainstream.

Collapse of the GOP
So take notice GOP heads, the Ron Paul train is here not for a splash, but for the reckonin'. We will accept no other than Ron Paul....period! We can only hope that you will see that his concepts are accurate and join in. Many of you have kids and grandkids that have a right to the America we were promised, and our forefathers fought so hard to attain.
So, if he does not get the nomination, I believe it is time for the GOP to fold as there will be a mass exodus of its' members. There would be no reason to support a party that does not support its' members.

“The officers don’t want to hear anything about how just about everyone serving in Iraq thinks this war is stupid and should have never been launched in the first place,” Vincent said, standing among the protesters. “But my fellow enlisted soldiers are getting tired of me talking about Ron Paul. It’s almost as if they think that it doesn’t matter who is president. But in this election is does, because we don’t need anyone dying anymore for a war that has no real cause.”

Non-Voters Finally Have a Good Reason to Return to the Polls
Attention non-voters of all "parties". You folks have been given a bum rap for some time now even though you represent roughly half of the eligible voting population. Don't be ashamed. There is nothing wrong with not voting when you have nothing to vote for. In fact, it is more immoral to vote for a candidate you don't like because you think they are the lesser of two evils. In that case, you are voting for evil. So, to all of you who stay home on election day because you know your vote won't make a bit of difference, you are to be applauded. You send a message, that unless they give you someone to vote for, you will not volunteer to legitimize a fixed system: a system where the rich get richer and the rest of us get the shaft. You have been absolutely correct... up until now.

Yes Ranting, the Straw Poll was set up and as crooked as any political action I have seen in years, after 50 years of being a Republican I can honestly say I am ashamed of my association with that group. This Poll has all the earmarks of a Fascist Regime and a staged event to discredit only one man. Ron Paul. His people from San Antonio had registered online and gotten a receipt saying registration at 10 AM. The busload was there but the registrars grabed their paper work and left the tables at exactly 10 AM saying the registration ENDED at 10. They refused to allow that busload of folks into the voting area. YET... just a few moments later another group showed up that were not Paul supporters and were ushered in by the back door. Yes that was documented and photographed.

In contrast, what is the federal government giving us for our $3 trillion a

It tells us what we can buy and what we can sell, whom we can hire and whom we can fire, and with whom we can associate and with whom we cannot, as well as other impediments to the peaceful, voluntary interaction that makes civilization possible. It runs up the prices of the goods we buy and holds down the wages we earn. It keeps life-saving medicines and other products from us under the guise of ‘consumer protection.’ And that’s just for starters; I don’t have time today to even begin detailing the ways in which government abuses us.

Why is Ron Paul a contender at only three percent? Polls tell us something lewreal but not all that is real. Ron consistently surpasses that number in straw polls and online polls. Both measure a critical factor in the primaries and caucuses that "scientific" polls miss: intensity of support. He draws the largest crowds of any Republican. He is the only Republican candidate who generates actual enthusiasm. Much of the poll strength of the other four is based on name recognition and money. Their significance will fade over time as Ron’s name recognition and treasury grow and their treasuries empty.

The Ron Paul Record: SPP, the NAFTA Superhighway and Mexican trucks - 3rd in a series
As of last Saturday, we now have Mexican trucks freely crossing our borders. The Mexican truck drivers’ criminal and driving records have not been adequately verified, their cargo will often go unchecked, and their trucks have not been subject to the same safety scrutiny as our U.S. trucks. This is all part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) which is linked to SOB’s (Son Of a Bush) illegal North American Competitirespillsveness Council (NACC). The SPP and NACC all tie in with NAFTA and the Superhighway system to totally decimate the U.S. Constitution with Canada, the U.S., and Mexico having a combined socio-economic system modeled after the European Economic Community. Big business and the power brokers win, We The People lose! See other posts in redpills regarding SPP and the NAFTA Superhighway (TCC-35).

“Ladies and gentlemen, we may not have a Texan on the ballot, but we cannot have another Clinton in the White House.”

The last time I checked, Dr. Paul is a ten term Texas Republican Congressman. He received a healthy sixty percent of the vote last election cycle, when Tom DeLay’s old district right next door went to Democrat Nick Lampson. One might think Governor Perry would have remembered him.

The Ghosts Inside the Machine
There is a machine operating behind it all in America. It drives policy and opedoutcomes. It drives legislation and the continued deterioration of culture and society. It buys what, and who it needs to ensure that it continues to be fed. It exists for the sole purpose of its continued existence and power. It absolutely owns the mainstream media and wields it masterfully as a weapon of mass distraction and destruction. It desires that America continue down the path of least resistance. It requires the people to care more about who won the last American Idol than who won their last Congressional race. It requires that 50% of the people do not even bother to vote for the very elected officials that will shape and decide their futures. We use terms like “corporate media” and “part of the machine” when discussing political matters but rarely do we truly examine what these terms mean. That is how the machine wants it and too often we play right along.

His grassroots message is also spreading and Ron Paul meet-up groups are now spawning across parts of Canada, as not only Americans realize things will be better off with him as president.

Ron Paul stands out from every other Republican candidate. His message is refreshing and speaks to the heart of what the Republican party was once truly committed to. He doesn't change his message based on who his audience happens to be. He has based his entire political career on the U. S. Constitution and is unwavering in his adherence to it. When he speaks, his passion and commitment to freedom and liberty plunges deep into the hearts of Americans who remember the ideals this nation was founded upon. If America is allowed to hear his message, he will indeed be victorious.

Paul Campaign Concludes Successful Weekend with Solid Straw Poll Finish
The presence of Dr. Paul supporters dominated the straw poll site, and 2008campaign leaders were pleased with the results in light of the difficult voting restrictions. Only recent party delegates were allowed to cast ballots, meaning that most of the thousands who turned out for Dr. Paul could cheer and celebrate but not vote. In addition, the straw poll was held several hours away from the Paul’s stronghold of south Texas. "This was a great weekend for our campaign, and Texans turned out in droves to support Dr. Paul," said campaign manager Lew Moore. "The pro-war party insiders voting in this straw poll may not support him, but the majority of attendees clearly did."

Ron Paul Raises More Than Entire Texas GOP?
The recent Texas straw poll reportedly charged $75 a head for voting fmnnrights and while GOP officials had expected 2,000 to vote, only 1300 reportedly did. Meanwhile, Ron Paul, who finished third in the highly restrictive straw poll, had his most successful fund raiser ever in Texas. The congressman raised $102,000 at a fund raiser hosted by the Highland Park Huffines family.
“More and more, the tail is wagging the dog in this presidential campaign,” one source pointed out. “The Texas straw poll was structured so that you could only vote if you had been a former GOP delegate. Even rank and file GOP-ers couldn’t vote. The only reason for such a restrictive system is to ensure that Ron Paul didn’t win. Those eligible to vote are the most hawkish, most pro-military and big-government oriented ‘conservatives’ in Texas. They have as little understanding of Jeffersonian, small government republicanism as big government democrats.”

Primary Challenge endorses Ron Paul
Primary Challenge, the political arm of the Upstate NY tax revolt, has lewendorsed Ron Paul for President and expects him to compete with Giuliani for the large pile of GOP delegates. The group, headed up by Len Roberto, a factory owner, has sponsored dozens of independent candidates in Upstate in recent years and caused many incumbents to announce premature retirements. I have done Election Law work for the group for the past three years.

Why Ron Paul is a Front-Runner
One thing to note about the support one sees for Ron Paul, whether it be at the Iowans for Tax Relief forum, straw poll attendees, or general public activism, is that it is the definition of a grass-roots campaign. Campaign headquarters has spent very little that it didn’t absolutely have to. All the pro-Ron Paul advertising you see out there is done entirely by volunteers. I joined my area Meetup to gather on a public street corner (there were about 20-30 of us) advertising his name, passing out literature to those who asked, and generally getting attention for the campaign. I defy anyone to show me the Obama activists, or the Romney supporters, who have even half the enthusiasm and energy of the Ron Paul campaigners.

Thank you for your heartfelt donations to Ron Paul's campaign & a little news from headquarters
Thank you Irvine meetup for your heartfelt donations to Ron Paul's meetupcampaign. Whatever happens with the competition, be proud of your contributions. And here's a little glimpse from headquarters. Bill Dumas, campaign videographer, sent a letter out to the Pasadena meetup today, and here's the interesting part. -D
Quote from Bill Dumas letter in Pasadena:
Earlier in the day we were treated to classic southern hospitality at the awesome mansion of Donald Huffines and family. The well-attended fundraiser garnered over $100,000!! Did I mention the food? Yeow!
All in all, this was a very successful trip and the momentum continues to build in a big way. The donations have been ramping up and the Meetup fundraising contest far exceeded expectations.

Why Ron Paul Stands Head and Shoulders Above his Challengers on Immigration
The U.S. Constitution enumerates the rights we all possess as individuals. It doesn’t grant them nor does it claim to be exhaustive or authoritative on the subject. It is quite specific as to who possess rights: people; persons. In other words, anyone who can fog a mirror has rights. Geographical location is thus not a barrier to the endowment of one’s rights. We possess rights by virtue of being alive. Merely being alive can never be construed, either morally or logically, to be an illegal act.

Ron Paul Delegates prevented from vote in Texas straw poll
We estimated about a dozen delegates every 10 mins were turned away for over 3 hours straight. These were almost all delegates who were wearing Ron Paul shirts or pins. I calculated approx, 200+ delegates were denied entry.

Establishment Conspiracy?
I'm not quite ready to say that there's an all-out conspiracy against the Paul candidacy, but I am willing to say that it sure doesn't look to me like the Republican Party hierarchy is showing much political savvy. All you have to do is look at the enthusiasm of the Ron Paul supporters: their willingness to travel long distances to support their candidate; their willingness to dig deep into their own pockets to donate (Dr. Paul has just started to bring in money from the big ticket fundraisers, and yet his financial position as of the end of the 2nd quarter was more stable than even John McCain's); their willingness to hold signs in support of their candidate in all sorts of weather, and so on.

Ron Paul delegates Experience Tyranny at the Texas Straw Poll
The vote was supposed to be until 1 or 2 pm, but GOP security prevented registered Delegates from entering the building who were wearing Ron Paul signs at 10am. I was standing over by the Granny warriors when 2 delegates approached me and asked me to help them get into the convention center. They had showed up at the door a little before 10am wearing Ron Paul shirts. The security guard told them to change into proper attire. They left and changed then came back and it was now 10:10/10:20 and the security told them the registration was closed. Apparently everyone who showed up from out of town or with an online registration recpt. was denied access unless they got there before 10am and in proper attire. Delegates who showed up, got their credentials and then changed were allowed to enter.

Why Liberals Should Support Ron Paul
The income tax funds the federal reserve fascists, as well as the opedunconstitutional, empire-building foreign policy we now have. The income tax is itself unconstitutional and illegal. The 16th amendment was never ratified. Nobody has ever found a law requiring the majority of Americans to pay an income tax. Some might say that this sounds evil, but it is a necessary evil, because we need the funds to keep our government going. Otherwise, our roads and freeways would collapse. But, for example, our infrastructure is funded through gas taxes, not the income tax. Most social services are funded by taxes other than the income tax. It is a bait and switch to believe that we need the income tax to fund our social services, when really it goes to fund the fascists that control our government, and our empire building. Ron Paul has never said he would slash or get rid of social services. He would let young people opt out of social security if they wanted to (no social service should be forced on anybody), for instance, but he would not deny services to people who have paid into the system.

Ron Paul's Campaign: Looking Back and Moving Forward
Supplementing that outpouring of support was a highly creative Ron Paul Meetup.com fundraising competition, where members of self-organized MeetUp groups around the country competed to raise funds to help Ron Paul get into the White House and, if victorious in their efforts, win a visit from Dr. Paul live and in in person. The final scores have not been added up yet, but at the very least $130,000.00 (according to August 30 results) was raised and most likely much, much more. If there was a large push on the final day of contest eligibility, it's possible that this weekend brought $500,000 or more. That amount of fundraising constitutes top-tier results by almost any standard.

The Ron Paul Record: non-interventionist foreign policy / get out of Iraq - 2nd in a series
In April 12, 2002, Rep. Paul wrote, “The current Middle-East crisis is one redpillsthat we helped create, and it is typical of how foreign intervention fails to serve our interests. Now we find ourselves smack-dab in the middle of a fight {Arab-Israel} that will not soon end. No matter what the outcome, we lose.” He concludes with, “A non-interventionist foreign policy has a lot to say for itself, especially when one looks at the danger and inconsistency of our current policy in the Middle East.”

Ron Paul finally getting some media attention
Republicans wish GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, a U.S. ocrrepresentative from Texas who epitomizes the small-l libertarian philosophy similar to the one you read on the Register’s editorial pages, would go away. His principled limited-government stances (compared to Republicans’ solely rhetorical belief in limited government as they ratchet up the size of the welfare and security state) and opposition to this horrific and deceitful war embarrass them. The media has ignored Paul because he is not viewed as a “credible” candidate.

Ron Paul Revolution a Coalition of the Willing to Restore our Constitutional Republic
The Ron Paul Revolution is about people realizing that hey these guys do not act in our best interest and we should remove them before they do some more harm to us. This entire terrorist hyperbole game is getting pretty tired. Lets just arm every American Citizen and if someone has a box cutter and tries to hijack a plane we can shoot him or taser him or some such thing and there you have it. Problem solved! If you are not a citizen you can’t carry a gun. If you are a so called domestic terrorist everyone will also have a gun so chances are if you go off you will be shot before you can do much damage.

Ron Paul places 3rd in Texas straw poll

Ron Paul Does Well in the Texas Straw Poll
The Texas Republican Party set up its straw poll to hurt Ron Paul. That's lewwhy the voters were restricted to past delegates and alternates from Texas Republican conventions, that is neocons and party hacks for the most part. Also, the poll was placed in Ft. Worth, five hours away from Houston and the Gulf Coast, to discriminate against delegates from Ron Paul Land. Ron was supposed to get zero. Instead, he got more than 16%.
The Republican Party of Texas has been controlled by the Bushes since 1980. That means the Ron Paul campaign and all its volunteers and donors can be very proud. This is yet another step upwards in the growth of a movement that is already shaking the world of all the bad guys. Note: Hunter did so well because he alone, of all the warmongering candidates, bothered to show up. BTW, Fred the Late was supposed to win--that was Gov. Perry's plan--but he was elsewhere, delaying. UPDATE: Ron got 16.7% in this biased poll.

GOP'S TOP TIER CONCEDE TEXAS TO RON PAUL
It is hard to imagine that these candidates, especially Romney and Giuliani, do not consider Texas - the nation’s second largest state in terms of (34) presidential electors - worth their while.
If that was not the reason for their absence, then what was?
Could it be that Texas is Ron Paul’s home state in which he has held his congressional seat for ten straight years?
Could it be that the Texas GOP platform is the most old-school conservative of all states in the union to the point where it reads almost like a Ron Paul campaign bulletin (minus the reference to “preemptive” defense of the country against foreign attacks, of course)?
Could it be that these absentees don’t want to risk having to put up with a resounding defeat in a state of such importance to the general election?

The straw poll
The Ron Paul campaign is here in full force. They are everywhere. They've townhallgot people on every street corner in Fort Worth. They are running shuttle services (pickup trucks, vans and even a motorcycle) from the hotel to the convention center. They have RVs covered in Ron Paul stickers. It remains to be seen if the sheer volume of Ron Paul folks will turn into a victory as most of the Ron Paul folks are stuck outside today and not credentialed to vote. The rules of the Texas straw poll are different. You can't just show up and vote -- you have to have been a delegate at a previous Texas or Republican National Convention.

Paul backers make their presence known
Paul, of Surfside, didn't make it into Fort Worth until his night rally
star downtown. Nonetheless, he was a candidate who was impossible to ignore.
"We're going to surround the area as more people come," said Paul supporter Christopher Laskoski of Fort Worth. "You will see more ground support for Ron Paul than any other candidate."
Paul supporters are typically proud of their outsider status, but they yearn for mainstream media attention for him as a top contender for the GOP presidential nomination. Several, including Paul's son, Benbrook doctor Robert Paul, believe that their candidate would be one of the front-runners if the media gave Paul, a Texas congressman and former Libertarian presidential nominee, the attention they think he deserves.

Successful Fundraiser
The single most-successful fundraiser of the Ron Paul 2008 campaign took place last night in Highland Park, Texas (Dallas). The event was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Huffines.
The Huffines family opened their beautiful home and graciously hosted many supporters of Dr. Paul's. The evening ended with $102,000 donated to Dr. Paul's presidential campaign!

Diary: Sheehan, straw poll to collide Saturday
Friday, 4 p.m.: Thanks for your support, Ron Almost as many Ron Paul starsupporters showed up to Duncan Hunter’s 4 p.m. rally as did Hunter supporters. Hunter’s rally to support the troops was held at the Fort Worth Water Gardens.
Paul’s supporters, who stood in a line behind Hunter’s backers, said Paul and Hunter agree on many issues. They were there to let Hunter’s supporters know there was another option, said Clayton Slade. “These people are all potential Ron Paul supporters,” Slade said.

Ron Paul National Support Crew
Ron Paul is the only one who stands for anything and goes out of his way to make the distinction between what he wants to do (like privately donate money for a medal for Rosa Parks) and what the federal govt cannot do (like using public funds for the medal). We support his candidacy but we must also support our fellow citizens when we switch from automatic transmission (federal central government) to manual transmission (state's rights based govt).

In Wiki-Politics, Ron Paul Leads the Field
At this time during the run up to the last presidential election, Wikipedia was in its infancy. In July of 2003, the online encyclopedia attracted less than half a million US visitors. Fast forward four years. In July of 2007 over 41 million people, or 1 in 4 people online in the US, visited the site. Wikipedia is now the 12th most visited website and is likely to play a significant role in informing and influencing those who will choose our next president.
