  • Ron Paul Rocks, Hits Back, Stands Up, Deliversand Gets a Seat at the Convention Table

    Ron Paul cooperates with no one, checks his voice for no one and doesn't much like the GOP establishment types. This would include the GOP's likely nominee, Mitt Romney, template maker in Massachusetts for all things nefarious accomplished by Barack Hussein Obama but brought to a national audience. Paul has declined to endorse Romney, but given the army of organized pitchforks he has attracted over the course of a run or two at the party nomination, the man has won a seat at the convention table. USATODAY.com reports that room will be made for Ron Paul in the convention, and...

    "God wants Ron Paul to be President. Paul is the only Christian still running who beat Obama in polls, but will Christians and pastors obey God?" says Pastor Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries. "We must obey God and vote for Christians. Noah Webster used Exodus 18:21 for American voting. John Jay said "select and prefer Christians for [our] leaders" (Mark 12:30, Psalm 1, Psalm 33:12). "Comparing Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, we see Paul will cut the deficit $1 trillion in year one, but Obama and Romney would increase the deficit. Americans will have more jobs...
  • Ron Paul halts active campaigning in remaining primaries

    Houston Chronicle ^ | May 14, 2012 | Samantha Wagner
    While Ron Paul is still seeking delegates, he has called it quits on the campaign trail. The Houston-area congressman announced this afternoon that he will no longer actively campaign in the remaining primary states, including his home state of Texas. In an email to supporters that also was posted on his campaign web site, Paul explained the decision largely came down to cost. To continue, it would require “many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.” “I hope all supporters of liberty will remain deeply involved – become delegates, win office, and take leadership positions,” he said...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Mitt Romney may be the presumptive GOP nominee against Democratic President Barack Obama, but Republican primaries will still be held in New York and elsewhere tomorrow. Guy Molinari, Romney's state campaign director, said the Romney forces are taking nothing for granted, looking to battle Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich across the Empire State, where 95 delegates are at stake. "We have to redouble our efforts and go for a clean sweep," said Molinari. "We want to win every congressional district." And that includes Staten Island. Even though Molinari said informal tracking shows Romney is "very strong"...
  • Ron Paul Will Quit Republican 2012 Presidential Race

    03/28/2012 9:54:50 AM PDT · by mnehring · 39 replies
    Will Ron Paul be the next Republican presidential candidate to drop out of the race? Unfortunately, Ron Paul Nation, it’s looking like that. The libertarian’s recent primary showings and fundraising figures have been far from stellar, and Paul now looks like the shakiest candidate in the race. All other candidates — even the mostly down and out Newt Gingrich — still have something going for them. Paul, of course, has yet to win a state primary. Yes, he “won” the popular vote in the Virgin Islands earlier this month, but all but one of the eight delegates in that race...

    .....Such an arrangement would help Paul get what a Romney ally called “an important speaking role at the convention.” ....."The Texas Representative might also be enticed, says campaign chairman Jesse Benton, by the prospect of serving as a presidential adviser, a Cabinet position for someone in his orbit or “perhaps a vice presidency.”...... ---------------------------------- ......Some people said they could not imagine Paul would actually ever endorse any of the others, and that nothing could make them vote for a non-Paul Republican. And Joshua Clement Broyles said that "No deal. The records of those other GOP douchebags are all bad enough...

    Las Vegas Sun ^ | Jan. 31, 2012 | Ron Paul
    During any presidential election year, taxes are sure to be a large part of the debate. That’s especially true during these tough economic times. One side argues that high-income earners aren’t taxed enough and advocates higher taxes on this group to balance our budget and get our economy moving. The other side argues that taxes are too high and advocates for lower taxes on businesses, high-income earners and virtually all Americans as a way to stimulate our economy. But there’s one sector of American workers who are often overlooked by both sides during the never-ending debate on taxes. That’s service-industry...

    Filmmaker Oliver Stone, known for his liberal political views, said he would vote for GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul over President Obama should Paul win the Republican nomination. In an interview with Rock Cellar magazine, Stone was asked if an economic collapse would lead to the fall of the American “empire.” “I think it’s a given,” Stone said. “There’s no way that we can continue this spending spree. In fact, I think in many ways the most interesting candidate — I’d even vote for him if he was running against Obama — is Ron Paul. Because he’s the only one...

    National Review ^ | 01/17/2012 | Dennis Prager
    In the Republican presidential candidates’ debate on January 7, Rep. Ron Paul said: “I’m the only one up here . . . that understands [that the] true racism in this country is in the judicial system.” He said this racism has to do with “enforcing the drug laws,” and then added: “They [blacks] get the death penalty way disproportionately.” Two groups immediately defended Paul — his supporters, and commentators on the left. The former support anything Paul says; and the Left supports anything that Paul says that portrays America as ugly (see, for example, the defense of Paul by the...

    Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul picked up an endorsement from popular South Carolina State Senator Tom Davis (R-Beaufort) Sunday. Mr. Davis is a popular Tea Party Republican in South Carolina, and he has been critical of front running Republican candidate Mitt Romney also, so his vote could sway some last minute undecided voters towards Mr. Paul in the upcoming South Carolina Republican primary election. According to the Public Polling Policy poll of South Carolina voters released Friday shows 30 percent of the voters identify themselves as members of the Tea Party. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich did the best among...

    LAKE JACKSON, Texas (AP) - The only trail where you might catch Ron Paul this weekend is the biking one here. While the other Republican presidential candidates were campaigning in South Carolina, the Texas congressman whose recent momentum is arguably second only to front-runner Mitt Romney's is home taking a break, just as his often belittled candidacy has never been taken more seriously. Paul's supporters say they don't begrudge the 76-year-old for stepping out of the spotlight after he really seized it. "It's totally OK," said Cindy Lake, 48, a volunteer passing out voter registration forms ahead of Nevada's primary...

    Ron Paul picked up a major endorsement from an evangelical leader when Dr. James Linzey, president and founder of the Military Bible Association, endorsed the candidate. Lizney, who served as a military chaplain for over 24 years and retired with an honorable discharge, has hosted Operation Freedom, a television program in Europe. Before founding the Military bible Association, he travelled the world as an evangelist. In a statement to Congressman Paul declaring his endorsement, Lizney said, “Having thoroughly examined your political philosophy and finding that your platform is 100% in line with the Constitution of the United States of America,...

    The young Paulistas gathered to receive their marching orders. Get a haircut. Wear a tie. Be polite. Don't gratuitously annoy mainline Republicans. Leave the discussion of political philosophy to the candidate. Your job, they were instructed, is to win votes for Ron Paul. That was the scene as described to me in New York City this summer. Since then, it has become standard operating procedure for the activists once dismissed as the "Ron Paul kids" during their long march through the GOP. "No tats," one young Paul volunteer told the New York Times he was advised. No "fraternizing in the...

    Blue Republicans ^ | 2 January 2012 | Unattributed
    We are people who have never before thought of joining the Republican party, but are going to do so for one year to ensure that Ron Paul wins the Republican nomination for President in 2012. Most of us identify as Democrats or Independents and/or supported Obama in 2008. We believe that on issues that matter most – war vs. peace (Iraq, Yemen etc.), civil liberties (Patriot Act etc.), and crony corporatism (bailouts etc.) – Obama has pursued a course similar to George Bush. Our reasoning is laid out in this article by Robin Koerner on the Huffington Post that “went...

    Brian's Right Perspective ^ | December 26, 2011 | Brian
    As if there are any more reasons to show that Ron Paul should not be the GOP Presidential candidate, there is this bit from 2008 in which Paul endorses four(!) candidates for President, including the Marxist whack-job Cynthia McKinney and Ralph Nader. How unhinged to you have to be, intellectually, to endorse not only four people, but four whom also hold diametrically opposing views on the role of government. This alone shows that Ron Paul is not a serious thinker. In fact it shows him to be a reactionary flame thrower, willing to completely abandon principles when he doesn't get...

    The Iowa Republican ^ | December 29, 2011 | Kevin Hall
    Most of Ron Paul’s Iowa campaign stops have been in the state’s largest population centers and college towns. Now, with a caucus victory within reach, the Texas congressman is taking his libertarian message to Iowa’s smaller cities. Paul visited Perry, Iowa over the noon hour on Thursday. The crowd of 100 was definitely more reserved than what Paul is used to. There was no standing ovation at the beginning or end of his speech. There were no whoops or cheers, but plenty of polite applause. “I like a lot of what he says, especially about the U.S. economy and balanced...

    Redstate ^ | 12/27/2011 | Leon H. Wolf
    Via Ben Domenech’s Transom comes perhaps the least surprising news of the month. That news is that almost exactly half of all Ron Paul supporters in Iowa and New Hampshire self-identity as non-Republican. Without the support of these Democrats and Independents, Paul pulls roughly the same trivial level of support he got in 2008. This has some important implications for the state of the race. First, as Neil Stevens has been patiently noting here on the front page, this makes Paul’s level of support in Iowa potentially much softer than it appears. While these voters can at least theoretically register...
