Ron Paul wins CPAC straw poll, receives 30% of vote

Ron Paul 2012! Gotta love how the Faux newswoman had to throw in a dig claiming that the “story is not Ron Paul winning again for the second year in a row, but they are pointing to the strength of Mitt Romney coming in second place again with 23%, Mitt Romney, that’s what the CPAC advisors are telling me today”. Since when is the second place winner the story of any election? Ron Paul coming in first [again] isn’t a story worth telling? They’re already pulling out the anti Ron Paul spin…good let them be shocked and unprepared again when the Ron Paul revolution comes out with even more supporters and a louder voice during the next election.

Paul has a real chance of beating Obama, few other Repubs do. The difference is that Paul is for real and will use his influence the way he says he will. His mouth is actually in alignment with his actions. If you haven’t already figured this out, study his voting record. Paul always votes on principle, always upholds the Constitution and always uses his influence to promote liberty for the individual without seeking personal gain. Could America possibly have a more honest, principled candidate for president?

Official Ron Paul Campaign Update

Going the distance!

Mitt Romney Endorses Ron Paul

Okay, Romney didn’t actually endorse Ron Paul — but he might as well have. In this interview with Mark Larsen on The Morning Magazine show out of Tampa Bay Romney basically says (in so many words): “I am part of the corrupt political elite. I will not do anything to fix the problems in this country, but I might make them worse — at the very least I will continue with our failed policies. Everyone should vote for Ron Paul instead of me or any of the other candidates.”

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.

Further Analysis of Mike Huckabee

The American Thinker has done some interesting writing on Huckabee, his political history as governor of Arkansas, and the policies he would implement if elected. These articles ad further support to the conclusion that Huckabee is not the candidate best suited to be our next president.

James Lewis writes in Huckabee’s Amazing Coincidences:

Huckabee is not a conservative. He is a populist, like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Hewey Long. He started off as a very successful radio preacher. Huckabee has years of practice doing off-the-cuff repartee with radio listeners. He is a master of the exploding sound-bite. But Huck is no Rush Limbaugh, and he’s certainly no Reagan. He could be the Rush from the Dark Side, using those awesome talents to undermine conservatism, rather than build it up.


In The Church of Huck: Growing Government in the Name of Religion Selwyn Duke (himself a professed Christian) lays out evidence that Huckabee “would impose statism in the name of religion through government”:

It’s not that Huck would impose religion through government. No, his actions would truly offend you. He would impose statism in the name of religion through government.While Huck will say what you want to hear to win office, he will not hear what you want to say once there. He will make tone-deaf Bush seem like a maestro…

Huck invokes faith to justify ambitions ranging from the insidious to the idiotic. For the former, look no further than immigration, where Huck espoused the Christian principle, “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you,” while advocating an apparent open-door policy. This, despite the fact that if any good Christian were to find himself in a country illegally, he would expect its citizens to demand he return home.
