Ron Paul: We have one political party and all they fight over is power

Republicans and Democrats belong to the same political party, fighting over power–not philosophy:

Hillary Clinton Compliments Ron Paul and His Supporters

Unexpected praise for Ron Paul and his enthusiastic supporters from none other than Hillary Clinton.

Ron Paul on the D.L. Hughley Show

Dr. Paul was on the D.L. Hughley show last night. I have to agree with D.L. Hughley, Ron Paul makes “too much sense to be a Republican” (or a Democrat).

Ron Paul, Michael Steele and Rush Limbaugh

Ron Paul is right, Steele is playing politics, and Rush is wrong (full of something besides just himself). What else is new…

Ron Paul Interviewed on Russia Today

Ron Paul Discusses His Rally on Glenn Beck Show

Ron Paul discusses his “counter rally” in Minneapolis on the Glenn Beck Show 9.3.2008. Glenn is pretty supportive overall but he still can’t give up his neocon-leaning foreign policy, which is enough on its own to discredit him as a reliable source of commentary.

Also, Beck can’t pass up the opportunity to take a jab at Rally for the Republic speaker Jesse Ventura for his common sense stance in questioning the government’s official version/theory of the events of 9/11 (out of all the things Beck could have mentioned in the three minute interview). It wouldn’t be the first time the government has lied to us Glenn…

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 on the Fed, Foreign Policy 8.28.08

Ron Paul discusses the Fed, the economy, presidential candidates, and U.S. foreign policy (particularly as related to Georgia and Russia) on CNN’s “American Morning” August 28, 2008:

McCain: “Did I Mention that I Was a POW?”

McCain was on Leno recently trying to get a little attention for himself in the midst of the DNC. When asked by Jay about the numerous houses he owns his response was basically this:

Never mind that I am part of the financial and political elite in this country. I am above questioning and I am exempt from criticism because I WAS A POW!!! Remember? A P-O-W!!! I mean, come on people. Oh, and by the way MY WIFE IS CURRENTLY IN GEORGIA. Yeah, THAT Georgia — as in the aggressive U.S. puppet state that attacked South Ossetia a couple weeks ago with the assistance and blessing of our government.

What McCain did not mention here is that his top foreign-policy advisor is the Neocon Randy Scheunemann, who is a paid agent of Georgia.

Beck doesn’t often get it completely right — especially on issues like foreign policy and terrorism — but at least in some areas he’s pretty close:

Rally for the Republic Announcement from Ron Paul

Ron Paul’s Rally in Minnesota Has Been Moved

ABC News is reporting the following:

Ron Paul is not holding his breath for a speaking slot at the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis/St. Paul in September and he has long planned a day-long shadow convention to give him an arena to expound his limited government mantra.

But, worried about the size of his arena, his new political action group–The Campaign for Liberty–has booked a bigger one.

They’ll announce today they’ve changed from the Williams Arena at the University of Minnesota to the much larger Target Center, seating capacity: 18,000.

Ron Paul’s New Website!

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.

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.
