    CHICAGO - Late on a balmy Friday night in Wicker Park, a gentrifying neighborhood just northwest of the Loop, a small tribe of 20-somethings gathers outside a corner bar. Their leader, a petite, energetic 25-year-old named Meghann Walker, hands out leaflets to people heading inside. "Do you guys know Ron Paul is going to be in town tomorrow?" Walker asks a short-haired young woman in jeans and flip-flops. "There'll be a lot of good people there, that's for sure."

    Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, an old-fashioned conservative with a strong libertarian streak, inspires a small but growing base of fervent admirers with his strict interpretation of Congress' powers No matter who shows up at this week's Republican presidential debate in Baltimore, it's a good bet the biggest applause will go to the most conservative man onstage. He's Rep. Ron Paul, a perfect protest candidate for 2008. Trained as a physician, he's "Dr. Paul" to a small but growing base of fervent admirers - more than a few of whom could fairly be called zealots. Around the Capitol, the Texas...

    Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul contends that the federal government has overreacted by limiting personal freedom in the wake of terrorist attacks six years ago, noting more people die on U.S. highways in less than a month’s time compared to the number who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. “We have been told that we have to give up our freedoms in order to be safe because terrorism is such a horrible event,” Paul said today to more than 1,000 supporters who attended a rally at a downtown Chicago hotel ballroom. “A lot fewer lives died on 9/11 than...

    The Republican Party, by almost universal disgruntled consent, is in every way a cause of concern for the limited government espoused in the articles adopted by the GOP membership. The Republican Party has become in governing what they've fear-mongered us for decades the Democratic party would be if, in fact, we elected Democrats to Washington. Let's be honest: The D.C. Republicans who've lied their way into leadership are little else than a rejected radical left wing of the Democratic party. Pre-emptive nuclear strikes? NAFTA, CAFTA? The Patriot Act? Enforcing U.N. resolutions? Lowering taxes a couple hundred dollars for the average...

    Ron Paul 2008 ^ | September 13, 2007 | Kent Snyder
    Los Angeles enthusiastically received Ron Paul yesterday! The fundraising reception in the morning was a great success. It was held at the Ritz Carlton in Pasadena and tickets were $500 per person. Sold out! After the breakfast, Dr. Paul went to a nearby university. He met with a group of students and press. He then spoke at a rally outside on campus. A police officer estimated the crowd to be between 700-900 people. They cheered Dr. Paul time and time again. Students and professors in the surrounding buildings had windows opened and listened too. After the rally, Dr. Paul attended...

    (AP) NEW YORK -- Passengers on a plane leaving New York could see three words in 4-foot block letters painted on an East Village rooftop terrace as they ascended: GOOGLE RON PAUL. The entreaty to search the Internet for news of the Republican congressman from rural Texas is one of the more visible signs of enthusiasm from a do-it-yourself base of Web fans. Their support doesn't show up in public opinion polls, but it's unmatched among presidential candidates in its passion. On their own, the fans have developed a Ron Paul Revolution logo, marketing the idea through YouTube. Message boards...

    The Ron Paul 2008 national office in Arlington, Virginia occupies the second floor of this building (about 3,000 square feet). It's on a busy street and across from a busy grocery store. People are noticing our "Ron Paul 2008 - Hope for America" sign. Georgetown Valet dry cleaners will be open in about a month and in a building next door (left) a restaurant is under construction.

    In the weeks preceding the 2001 attacks on America, there were very significant financial warning signs that something big – and bad – could be about to happen. Huge surges in purchases of “put options” on stocks of United Airlines and American Airlines, the two airlines used in the attacks, and “put options” on Merrill Lynch & Co., and Morgan Stanley, stocks of two financial services companies hurt by the attack were noted. Put options are essentially “bets” that a stock or stock index will drop on or before a certain date; the larger the drop, the bigger the gain...
