His commitment to auditing and providing accountability to the Fed was cited quite often as well. Congratulations to Congressman Paul and his supporters, I’ll be getting his certificate and Starbucks Card next week.

so your the 1!

no problem, I don't think that vote will push Pence over the top.

An evening bump.

If anybody here has not voted yet, what are you waiting for?

And leave a nice comment while you are there.
Here's mine:
"I voted for Ron Paul. I have been following his career since before the 2008 Iowa presidential caucuses. His integrity, insight and statesmanship are second to none. He has been right on the money (pun intended) when it comes to the economy. Starting YEARS before the financial crisis and mortgage implosion, he was predicting what would happen, explaining exactly how we were going wrong and trying to tell us how to avoid it. He did this while the rest of the GOP presidential candidates and media pundits (from the left AND right) were ignoring or laughing at him.

And he did this while Sarah Palin's running mate, John McCain was linking arms with Barack Obama in support of the $700 billion Wall Street bailout."

Need I say more?"

The author of the write up posted it at RPF and passed on the views of the owner of the site (a Palin fan):

"Spread it around, but only vote once. This is Iowa, not Chicago."

But EVERYONE should vote once!

I'm the author of the post

I'm the author of the post supporting RP. Thanks for the link.

As of now, RP is tied with Palin at 38% each.

Just to answer a few questions.

Caffeinated Thoughts was the name of the blog when it was stared a few years ago, so that is where the name "caffeinated" conservative comes from. The winner gets a starbucks or equivalent gift card, just for fun.

Caffeinated Thoughts is not the most influential blog nationwide, but it is one of the most influential blog in Iowa politics. It is read by many politically active Iowans.

Caffeinated Thoughts is connected with the Blogs 4 Palin network (main guy big Palin supporter), so the word about the poll is flying through the Palin community as well. Lets show them what real grassroots organization is!

Thank you for the article...

... and your activism in Iowa!
As a Ron Paul Republican in southwest Iowa, I am both encouraged by the increasing support for Dr. Paul, and frustrated by the continued popularity of NeoCon scum like Huckabee.

Lets hope a win by Ron in this poll will help.

Oh, hi!

Sorry, didn't see you there -- but this needs to be bumped anyhow, or it drifts down the listed forum topics and disappears....

Great article "Ddkrutsinger."

I thought it was well written and I am an avid Ron Paul supporter.

Good job and I hope this changes a few minds in Iowa.

I agree!

And thank you for nominating Ron!

Welcome and thank you for the reminder

Welcome and thank you for reminding how important the politics in Iowa truly are for the rest of us.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

It all begins in IOWA and DR. PAUL JUST JUMPED AHEAD!

Let's send Palin a message.

RON PAUL is the TRUE liberty candidate.

If we can win in Iowa!...

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

bump

I know this probably isn't the most influential blog out there but I just hate to see Ron lose in ANY online poll.

Besides, it was the first thing to pop up on Google news under "Ron Paul".

Cool it. It doesn't help their cause to call Ron names, and

it doesn't help our cause to call SP names. Wouldn't civility be nice, so our respective candidates can make their own cases?
