Ron Paul surging in Iowa, leads in latest PPP poll

Ron Paul is having a late surge in Iowa, taking the lead in the latest PPP poll:

“2012 GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul is leading Iowa according to a new PPP poll released yesterday evening, with 20 percent of the vote. The survey has Paul also leading among Independents and Democrats with 30 percent of the vote, more than twice that of the nearest challenger.”

“…This comes on the heels of a CNN/Time poll which showed Ron Paul strong against President Obama. Highlights from the poll include Paul besting Obama 47 to 46 percent among those 65 years and older, said to be the most reliable voters.  Paul also beats Obama among persons who reside in rural areas 52 to 44 percent and with Independents 48 to 47 percent.”



Ron Paul & Mitt Romney Leading in Iowa

Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are trading the lead poll position in Iowa’s upcoming caucus, depending on which poll you look at it or depending on the day, it’s going to come down to the wire!

“After months of volatility, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul remain the front-runners in Iowa for the third week in a row with the state’s Republican caucus just five days away.”




Ron Paul’s interview on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace

When asked about his goals in running for president, Paul repsonded: “I’m in it to win it…As president I would reduce the power of government, I wouldn’t seek it. I would never take the power from Congress…The Constitution was written to restrict the government, not to restrict the people, now it’s turned around. We use government to restrict the people in all manner. So I would like to reverse that.”

Ron Paul 2012: Peace Candidate

I like this yard sign a lot, nice design, great message. You can buy the sign over at RonPaulSwag.com. There’s also similarly designed bumper stickers at their site. FYI I’m making no money from this, just like the design.

Ron Paul is Republican front runner

Ron Paul’s support is surging, putting him solidly in position as a Republican front runner. Yesterday Paul took second in the Ames Straw poll in Iowa, only 152 votes short of Michelle Bachman (who is from Iowa).

28.55% (4823 votes) – Michele Bachmann
27.65% (4671 votes) – Ron Paul
13.58% (2293 votes) – Tim Pawlenty
9.81% (1657 votes) – Rick Santorum
8.62% (1456 votes) – Herman Cain
4.25% (718 votes) – Rick Perry (write-in)
3.36% (567 votes) – Mitt Romney
2.28% (385 votes) – Newt Gingrich
0.41% (69 votes) – Jon Huntsman
0.21% (35 votes) – Thaddeus McCotter

This is a dramatic shift from 2007 when Paul took 5th at the Iowa straw pool. Ron Paul has been taking 1st or second in all major straw polls this year. Earlier this year Paul took 2nd in the New Hampshire straw poll, first at the conservative CPAC straw poll, first at the RLC, the Louisiana leadership straw poll.

Still the only guy who is sincere and makes any sense during the debates, the other candidates were mostly groveling and trying to think up something that people wanted to hear.

More on upcoming Utah bill to ban unconstitutional TSA pat-downs

Utah Rep. Carl Wimmer is set to introduce a bill (sometime next year?) that would restrict TSA agents to Constitutional searches only at airport checkpoints.

Utah lawmaker seeks to limit TSA pat-downs , KSL.com, May 27th, 2011

…Wimmer told KSL News it is the role of the state Legislature to protect Utah residents from illegal searches and seizures, and he said the TSA is violating people’s rights every day in the airports.

Wimmer also said people all over the country should be outraged that the federal government threatened Texas after a bill there to regulate the TSA pat downs started moving through their house of representatives.

A somewhat misleading headline but an informative article:

Wimmer wants to stop TSA searches , Daily Herald, May 27th 2011

…”The absolute overbearing audacity of the federal government in threatening Texas while Texas is trying to protect their citizens should really offend any red-blooded American,” he said.

Fight For Restoration of 4th Amendment Intensifies, Still Patriot Act Gets Extension

We’re being told that there’s not time for debate, no time for dissent, no time for freedom. Is this the America you want for you and your kids? Is there anyone in the Senate besides Rand Paul that hasn’t sold us out?

Breakdown of House Roll Call Vote to Concur to Extend Patriot Act, May 26, 2001.

Several of Paul’s Amendments appear to have failed, with 2 still up for vote. Details at Opencongress.org: Paul gets two amendment votes, but the PATRIOT Act spy powers will remain largely unaffected

More details on Rand Paul’s website and at Daily Paul: SENATE FLOOR: Paul Amendments Tabled.

Essentially it appears that Harry Reid’s fearmongering and anti 4th Amendment rhetoric has all but won over Congress. See video of Rand Paul’s response to Reid’s childish remarks below:

In related news, Alex Jones calls for Protest at Texas Capitol over TSA bill:

Rand Paul: Protect our liberties & the innocent by letting Patriot Act expire — Key Votes Coming Up

Update: Unfortunately the first vote on “cloture” passed 74-8 today, there will likely be a vote on Wednesday in the Senate on final passage of the bill, S.1038. At that point it would move to the House for a vote. We need to let everyone in Congress know that it’s time to give us our freedom back, even if they ignore us, at least it won’t be said that we did nothing.

Great speech by Rand Paul. Every American should give this careful consideration.

Urgent: Need to contact your Senators and Representatives and urge them to vote no on extending any and all provisions of the Patriot Act. We don’t want four more years of warrantless spying, warantless wiretapping, searches and seizures without probable cause..they’re all ridiculous, unnecessary, even abhorent notions in a so-called “free” society.

“We can go after terrorists… but we can do it with a process that protects the innocent.” —Rand Paul

Rand Paul: A new war without ANY Congressional debate or vote

“He [Obama] seems to have had a lot of time to talk to people. He talked to the Arab League, they had time to get together and vote on it. He talked to the UN, they had time to get together and vote on it. But he had utter disregard and contempt for the most important body in the United States that represents the people, US Congress. Utter contempt, he’s gone to NATO, he’s gone to our allies, he’s gone to the Arab League, but he has not had one single minute of debate in Congress.
