Ron Paul Discusses Today’s Election and What it Means for the Country

Ron Paul (the man who in a perfect world would’ve been elected president today) was interviewed on CNN’s American Morning show. He discussed the elections and what a new president will mean to our country.

Let’s just say it doesn’t look good no matter who of the two “evils” wins today.

Coverage of Ron Paul’s Rally for the Republic

Way too much happened at the Rally for the Republic to show it all here, but some of the highlights are below. From all reports it was an amazing time. Obviously there were some excellent speakers there but also (from what I’ve heard) there was a good sense of camaraderie amongst the various types of people there as well. Freedom unites!

Ron Paul: Don’t Tread on Me

Ron Paul Receiving More Military Contributions Than Barack Obama

Outside the Beltway reported that Republican candidate Ron Paul has received more campaign contributions from military personnel than any other presidential candidate. Paul has received $63,440 in donations from retired and currently serving military personnel, and Democrat Barack Obama got $53,968, during the period from January through September 2008.

Open Secrets.org has a list of Ron Paul’s top donor organizations. The U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, and U.S. Air Force are among the top 6. These donations do not come from the organizations themselves, but rather from individuals in these organization or PAC groups with members in these organizations.

Squabbling over Ron Paul Supporters, Ignoring the Real Issues

by Chris Anderson

There have been some articles posted lately criticizing Ron Paul supporters for their unconventional approach to getting the word out about the campaign. Specifically characterizing some of their blog and article comment posts as “irritating,” “spam,” or simply asking them to “consider leaving comments with more substance.” While the later comment is certainly well-advised and worth taking to heart, the act of squabbling over methods rather than the message is merely an underhanded attempt at discrediting the Ron Paul campaign itself, a tactic which was started by the mainstream media and is now being perpetuated by bloggers.

The fact that Ron Paul supporters are enthusiastic and willing to work in the trenches disseminating information about him should alert any intelligent person that there is something important about the Ron Paul message and that it needs to be investigated more thoroughly by them.

To be honest, in my own news and blog travels I haven’t come across much intelligent debate at all from other candidate’s supporters, so on the face of it this argument against Ron Paul supporters is one-sided. On the internet I have found the other candidates’ supporters to be few in numbers, unsure of their position and/or simply avoiding anyone who challenges their uninformed political paradigm.

Where are the Thompson supporters commenting on their candidate here? I have found some Mitt Romney supporters, unfortunately the majority of them are simply uninformed about whats going on in the socio-political realm. If anything, Ron Paul supporters are several steps above anyone else with their intelligent and information-driven approach to the debate.

Even still, we can certainly take a cue from Van der Galien and step it up another level. Lets be more active, more thoughtful, more informed, and certainly take time to more fully investigate the other candidates, the issues, and know the Constitution so that we can speak with authority on the issues.

Part of knowing the value of Ron Paul is understanding the lack thereof in the other candidates. Here’s my analysis of Ron Paul vs Mitt Romney having studied their campaign websites.

Being a Mormon, I would quickly support Mitt Romney if he would just support the Constitution. Its clear he isn’t doing that.

Or here’s fantastic analysis of why the GOP needs to nominate Ron Paul.

What do I even need to say about Giuliani and McCain? Do some research for yourselves America!

Many of our own government leaders are either ignorant of the Constitution like Nancy Pelosi or blatantly trying to destroy it. This is why Ron Paul’s message is so important. This is why we need to give no credence to the “spammer” allegations, and not allow the main-stream media or anyone else to discredit the growing sentiments for a return to the values set forth in the Constitution. There are real issues relative to the survival of our nation that need to be discussed. Lets focus on those.

Why The GOP Must Nominate Ron Paul

“Why must the Republican Party nominate a 72-year-old grandfather from the Gulf Coast of Texas, until the past few months little known outside his district, as its 2008 standard-bearer? Very simple: the alternative is eight years of President Hillary Clinton. That ought to be enough to get the attention of every conservative who happens upon these words, so let me explain.” Read full story
