By Cameron Joseph | April 25, 2011

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, whose outspoken libertarian views and folksy style made him a cult hero during two previous presidential campaigns, will announce on Tuesday that he's going to try a third time.

I'd be happy to see us raise 3 Million

With each debate doubling our support for fundraising. By November we should be past our all time goal and December close to double our 08' goal (10 million). Its going to take some strong convincing to get the remnant to believe that this time is different. I want to know that the DP community believes that as well. We'll fund this thing from the start!

It Needs to be Huge!

Anything short of a million will be a huge disappointment. It may be early to break the $6 million record we set, but let's try.

Shock and awe!


May 5th

Launch Bomb is May 5th


Enjoy it while you can!

It's still top of Drudge!
We owe Drudge a big thanks - that article is excellent, all things considered. It's time, folksyies.

I noticed that too, but no

I noticed that too, but no biggie, the great thing is at least Mr. Paul is getting noticed this time around. Do we still need to rent a blimp?


will be his running mate.....betcha


It would appear too creepy. He'll choose someone with more administrative or legislative experience.

Rand will run in 2016.

They are wrong

"his “money bomb” fundraising strategy," was not Ron Paul's idea, it was totally his supporters.

That is what is really important for people to understand. WE did the money bomb because we support Ron Paul. I will never forget that day.

WE did it. It was a totally grassroots movement. Not political "strategy" by Ron Paul.

I hate the media. I know we need them, but OMG what a bunch of, whatever you want to call them.

Dont sweat. They always got it wrong. I proudly took part of it.

So I know you right. It doesnt matter though. Next fundraising will amaze them even more and they still will get it wrong. Dont pay attention to it.

Straight up Bozhi, it was all grass and it was and is amazing

and encouraging.I'm about 2hrs from Dr Paul's District office in Galveston and I can feel the energy. I'm in Aransas Pass,I'm not fishing I'm helping people save their homes from the banksters.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Im ready....

To do all I can. I have a 2 1/2 year old son this time around, I'll have to teach him to help paint some signs with me.

does anyone else find something odd ?

For such a strongly opposed corporate establishment we seem to be getting very Favorable publicity lately...

Could it be our movement is really strong?
or a big time set-up?

When you get burned once you always proceed with caution afterwords...

His campaign needs to be Run aggressively. Its time to play Politics but still be True to the cause.

REMEMBER MEDINA! lets not be Naive and ahead of ourselves. Theyre Going to be Plenty of Traps and Ron Paul sure got an onslaught 2008 presidential Run.

All im saying is We did good things in 2008 but they weren't Great.

We need to be Great to Win in 2012. Lets Do it...



Don't call it a comeback!

Knock 'em dead Ron.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

In stead of looking at what

In stead of looking at what the campaign did wrong last time, why don't each and everyone of us take a good look in the mirror, and ask ourselves: how can I work harder, what can I do better?

Jesse Benton was all of what,

Jesse Benton was all of what, 28yrs old during the last campaign? Give the guy a break.I am sure he will do better this time around, just like we all will.

I agree with others below

He needs to play to win this time. I don't know if it was a general lack of confidence or what, but he needs staff that WANT HIM TO WIN!! I don't think they did last time or they wouldn't have fouled-up so many times. I'm all in and will march when they say march, but they'd better be prepared for battle and not leave us at the foot of the hill serving lunch to the opposition.

I agree, if they don't:

The price of our remaining liberties will skyrocket, and rise faster than either gold or silver has in the last year.

Remind him Money Bomb not RP's strategy

Here's the letter I wrote: Love the story on Ron Paul, but one glaring error is attributing the money bomb "strategy" to Ron Paul or his official team. It was grassroots all the way and the evidence is everywhere if you care to take a look. That we organized across the world to raise money for his campaign shows the love, respect and support we have for him and since the very first money bomb that story has been diminished by reporting that it was something that he did. He did not organize it. We did.

I'm 57 years old and anxious to do it all again.

Wonderful letter!!

So true - I'm anxious to do it all again too.


hahaha...here we go

hahaha...here we go again......I cant wait!! Thank-you DR Paul!!

Amazing. Simply amazing. ummm

Amazing. Simply amazing. ummm paint the town Paul! woo hoooo!

I'm making a huge yard sign!

I just have to hand paint it.

Let's get this party


Don't know how reliable this is.

He's been saying as recently as yesterday that he would make up his mind in the next month. Perhaps it's just his exploratory committee that's being announced. Sounds like he's learned as much as we have. If we could just duplicate the success we made last time around, at least we, as a society, might be able to learn the correct lessons from the coming hyper-inflationary depression.
