The Ron Paul Revolution is continuing in an exciting way! Just announced today in conjunction with the official end to Dr. Paul’s presidential campaign is “Ron Paul’s Campaign For Liberty” at www.campaignforliberty.com.
Go to the new website and sign up to join the Campaign for Liberty! The goal is to have at least 100,000 members by September 2, 2008 (the day of Dr. Paul’s rally in Minneapolis).
According to Dr. Paul:
The work of the Campaign for Liberty will take many forms. We will educate our fellow Americans in freedom, sound money, non-interventionism, and free markets. We’ll have our own commentaries and videos on the news of the day. I’ll work with friends I respect to design materials for homeschoolers.
Politically, we’ll expand the great work of our precinct leader program. We’ll make our presence felt at every level of government, where just a few people with our level of enthusiasm can make a world of difference. We’ll keep an eye on Congress and lobby against legislation that threatens us. We’ll identify and support political candidates who champion our great ideas against the empty suits the party establishments offer the public.
We will be a permanent presence on the American political landscape. That I promise you. We’re not about to let all this good work die. To the contrary, with your help we’re going to make it grow – by leaps and bounds.
This is the most ambitious venture of my political career, and I think it can achieve great things. But I can’t do this alone. I need you to help me. I need your energy, your creativity, your ideas, and your dedication.
People frustrated with our political system often wonder what they can do. I have founded this organization to answer that question, to give people the opportunity to do something that really makes a difference in the fight for freedom. Please join me by becoming a member of the Campaign for Liberty. Our goal is 100,000 members by September. Can we reach it?
Our campaign netted 1.1 million votes in the primaries of a shrinking Republican Party. Millions more support us. I need you to help me reach them – and to keep making new converts to the cause. What a force we can be, if only we rise to the occasion.
Lew Rockwell posted this on his blog earlier today:
The Ron Paul Presidential Campaign Is Over
But The Revolution Continues
Tonight, at a rally adjacent to the Texas state Republican convention in Houston, Ron will thank all his donors and volunteers, and announce that he is closing down his presidential campaign, and is no longer a candidate for president.
But Ron will still hold his grand rally in Minneapolis on September 2–where he will NOT endorse McCain–and continue his efforts to change the Republican party. He will also, more importantly, step up his educational work for Americans in all walks of life, and all ages from home schoolers to seniors, in the principles of freedom, peace, sound money, Austrian economics, and the free market. Ron’s special targets, as always, will be the warfare state, the Federal Reserve, and the income tax.
Ron will continue to speak on college campuses. And with his own TV studios in Arlington, VA, and Clute, TX, he will also be a frequent commentator on YouTube and many other venues about the outrages of the central government, and what to do about them. His book, The Revolution: A Manifesto, remains on the bestseller list, and he is already working on his next one.
The successor organization to Ron’s presidential campaign and its remaining $4.7 million is his Campaign for Liberty.
UPDATE from ABC.
