The Amnesty Agenda

This report from Lou Dobbs discusses yet another example of how twisted things are getting in this country. The Mexican government is spending millions to change U.S. immigration policy as well as to influence the outcome of our 2008 presidential elections — which of course also influences immigration policy. We are being sold out by international corporations and spineless politicians. Time to elect Ron Paul and legalize the Constitution perhaps?

Nevada GOP Caucus In Chaos

There was early whispers of a surprise Ron Paul victory in Nevada. Now, as the caucus approaches, it appears there is trouble stirring to ensure this doesn’t happen

The Ron Paul campaign is calling for the Nevada GOP to postpone the caucus, scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday Jan 19th, after a series of changes, errors, and inconsistencies in the GOP caucus process made by the GOP itself.

From KOLO8 News Now:
“The inconsistencies, errors and multiple changes in the rules reek of playing politics with the what should be a neutral process,” said Ron Paul 2008 campaign manager Lew Moore.

“The people of Nevada deserve to know exactly what the rules are and to know that those rules are being fairly enforced. This has not happened up to this point, and the caucus appears to be in chaos.”

Even Bigger Than Ron Paul

I’ve worked long and hard to promote Ron Paul and his message and will continue to do so however tough the odds may be (on both counts) . I love Ron Paul and have a huge amount of respect for him and his character and integrity and I certainly still hold out hope that he can win.

Ultimately though all of us who care about the issues Ron Paul is fighting for will be in this for the long haul regardless of what happens in the 2008 elections. If Paul is elected it will still be a struggle to implement changes and improve things — one that will last for years. If he is not elected then we are probably in for an even bigger struggle. I hope that those of us who are new to this “Ron Paul Revolution” will not give up and walk away if Paul does not win. He is a focal point, a leader and an example, but the message is bigger than the man. I believe Ron Paul feels the same way, as he often says: “freedom is popular”. Let us always keep a long term perspective and never allow temporary setbacks to deter us from doing what is right.

This is a good article from The Facts written by John Tompkins. It echoes my sentiments and also provides interesting detail and insight into both the Ron Paul Revolution and the man himself. (Mr. Tompkins has written a number of interesting articles which I recommend.)

 

Supporters: Movement bigger than Paul

Published January 18, 2008

When Ron Paul first announced he was considering a run for the Republican nomination for president in January 2007, he didn’t know what to expect.

He said then he was forming an exploratory committee — the initial step toward a formal campaign — because he was asked to by a strong contingent of supporters. After first telling them no, he decided to create the committee to see if there was any interest out there for a Paul presidency.

“I’m willing to do this and test the waters,” he said at the time.

Exactly a year later, a humble push for the Lake Jackson congressman has turned into a nationwide campaign. Powered by individuals rather than campaign organizers, it has turned into the most-financed Republican campaign in the last quarter of 2007 with $20 million in donations raised mostly through the Internet.

It has been supported by a group of very young and committed volunteers who love Paul’s views on ending the Iraq war, bringing back the gold standard, ending the federal income tax and abolishing federal agencies such as the CIA and IRS.

And Paul loves the attention to those views from the young people. While campaigning in South Carolina and New Hampshire, Paul never once turned down an offer to take a picture with a supporter, film a video introduction for a high school TV news program or sign a pocket-sized version of the Constitution.
