Ron Paul Announces Presidential Candidacy on ABC Good Morning America, 5/13/11

http://www.youtube.com/wa...

Thanks Joe Plummer for the YouTube.

Ron Paul is set to officially launch his presidential campaign Friday morning, a Paul source told POLITICO.

The Texas congressman will make his announcement from New Hampshire during the 7:00 a.m. hour of ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Paul is then scheduled to speak at 10:00 a.m. in Exeter, part of a two-day swing through New Hampshire following a stop in Iowa. Paul will also be keynoting the Grafton County Republican Memorial dinner on Friday night.

Paul has already taken several incremental steps toward a full-fledged campaign, most recently opening an Iowa campaign office north of Des Moines earlier this week. He also recently raked in more than $1 million during a one-day online "money bomb" ahead of the first GOP presidential debate, demonstrating the continued strength of the grassroots fundraising machine that turned heads during his 2008 campaign.

UPDATE: Confirmed via Ron Paul's facebook page:

"Tomorrow I'll be on Good Morning America around 7AM. I'll also be making an important announcement at the historic Exeter town hall in New Hampshire at 10AM. If you are in the area, please stop by, or tune into the live stream of the announcement at http://www.ronpaul2012.com"

Notice the orchestrated attack script of "going too far" . . .

Let's see . . . where did we hear that before?? But the good doctor did fantastic in keeping the ball in his court and not letting Steponallofus step all over him like he was trying to do. He clearly articulated his positions. That was beautiful to see.

The media is attacking Ron Paul

The media is attacking Ron Paul, they are trying to discredit him before any of the Neoconservative candidates make the spotlight. They know very well those other guys do not stand up to Ron Paul. Everyone now see's that Ron Paul has a better chance of winning so they are all ganging up on him and demagoging every thing that he is saying. They are not going let go of this heroin issue. If you say a lie enough times it becomes truth. George Bush and the media fed WMD's down out throat till thats all we thought about. We need to do what we do best and shout "Ron Paul!" "Ron Paul!" "Ron Paul!" in every way we can. Everyone in the world has heard his name but its not enough till we say it so loud it becomes more popular.

Responding to the segregation card...

This was a bit of deja vu with the Rachel Maddow/Rand Paul interview. I think Dr. Paul could handle this issue with a much more positive tone that will appeal to more people than just dogmatic Neo-Lockeans like myself.

Ron Paul knows that American society can handle racists. If anyone was stupid enough to segregate his business, there would be boycotts, picket protests, and in this day and age with the internet, even a nation-wide list of known racists so that other business owners would refuse to serve them and give them a taste of their own medicine. They would be ostracized, and life for the racist would become very painful, very quickly, as they went bankrupt and were shunned. All with ZERO violence.

I wish he would be more explicit about this in interviews. He knows it's true but he has to actually say it for all of the people listening to him for the first time.

It wasn't ignorance. Steponallofus has all his questions

scripted and that was a rhetorical question meant to discredit Ron. I guarantee he will not ask that of any other "candidate".

Great job, Dr. Paul. You neutered GS!

I would make a list of all the neocon puppet journolists (like the snivelling gs) and talk over all of them just like he did here. That was a wonderful thing to witness.

GS is neutered!

That's right Steponallofus is absolutely lying about this, Ron

never bet him anything.

Debbie

It is not right. S. said he

It is not right. S. said he would bet everything in his own pocket, and it took Ron aback for a second. He did say that.

Stephanoupolos

After the contempt he showed Dr. Paul last go-round,I have such an antipathy to him that I was not able to bring myself to watch this until today. But I'm glad I did; am so proud of the way Dr. Paul just talked over him to make his points--I've never seen him do that before, gentleman that he is, but if he feels he must go into that arena, he will do well to use the time he's given on his own terms. And I thought I saw a certain steely light in his eye, too. You know he hasn't forgotten how he was treated either, and must have resolved not to let it go that way again. Gotta share this--- Once, a few years back, before I learned about Ron Paul, I was visiting my son in DC and I went with him to work out at his health club in Georgetown. GS was there,with his perfect hair, running on a treadmill. I already thought he was a pompous little thing, and I had the not-very-nice thought that it would be kind of interesting and lots of fun to jerk the treadmill plug out of the wall and see what happened. Of course, I didn't--but if the chance ever came again, I can't swear my better angel would prevail.

..made me laugh! Oh the thoughts we weave....revenge is fun

if you keep it in the "planning" stages;)

George Stephanopoulos? ......Pundit well wisher ?

Stephanopoulos belittled Ron Paul in the 2008 republican primary. Remember his prophecy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMUScSQagvQ

Ron Paul realizes that preaching to the choir will not win him the republican nomination in 2012. Let us not forget that!

The philosophical U-turn of big government spending will be resisted only through ignorance and apathy of true liberty.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to educate the uneducated or remain blissfully ignorant.

and then you die

Obviously, this was intented to be a smear piece.

But, it's so obvious that it just may backfire.

The STATISTS are in full attack mode

Every channel including FOX(Neal Cavuto) are in full attack mode. They are framing the argument. Labels: Libertarian, Indepedent run for pres, legalize prostitution, legalize heroin, not help disaster victims, etc, etc. They really don't want Ron to get any traction. And on Fox, they showed a poll where Ron did the worst. Many other polls he has gotten over 10%. Fox had him much less than 10%. I say, "Go get'em RON!!!" Totalitarinism rules in the media.

Freedom rocks, but many are too ignorant to understand that.

The gov needs to wipe our A$$ for us every second I guess!

Or we go whining to our MOMMY!! GRow some Balls AMERICA!!

way to handle the little weasel...

run right over him... he deserves absolutely no respect at all...

Rise

Such is the way of the world
You can never know
Just where to put all your faith
And how will it grow

Gonna rise up
Burning back holes in dark memories
Gonna rise up
Turning mistakes into gold

Such is the passage of time
Too fast to fold
And suddenly swallowed by signs
Low and behold

Gonna rise up
Find my direction magnetically
Gonna rise up
Throw down my ace in the hole

Ron Paul DID win the 08' election!

Nobody was talking about debasing currency, flawed foreign policy or legalizing pot before the 08' election. Now everybody knows about the Fed or at least something about it. The Ron Paul Revolution started the "Tea Party" by donating $100 on the Dec. 16th,2007 moneybomb (we remember). The brush fires of freedom were re-ignited during the 08' election by Ron Paul (my hero). Ron Paul will win in the outcome of the 2012 election no matter what.
George S. is a dirt-bag!

I am not convinced about...

everybody now knows something about the Fed. At best more people.

and then you die

They don't all know and/or understand

I was having a discussion with a friend the other day where he stated.. "I don't know what all the negativity about Bernanke is coming from.. I think he's done a pretty good job." It's REALLY hard to not get REALLY annoyed/perturbed by such ignorance. To me it was like saying something like "I don't know why people get so mad about having their belongings stolen." Or more like "I don't know why people get so mad about having their blood drained from their body."

The problem is that he just truly doesn't understand the nature of the FED. I made my attempt to explain it all - an area I need to work on.

But by the end of the discussion he was at least willing to research more on Austrian/free market principles and read one primer book in particular "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism".

Maybe he'll come around.

I Loved This - RP Put a Cork in The Controlled Blabbermouth....

...and wouldn't let the blowhard come up for air! I saw by his - RP's - expression that he was not going to let this pre-programmed twerp have the upper hand or get away with the mocking insults he's hurled at him before.

Way to go Dr. Paul...you're one lean, (not so!) mean fighting machine now!

If this is any indication of how he will run his campaign....by starting out of the gate with both barrels firing...GREAT!!

+++QUESTION+++

I want to make Ron Paul merchandise for the campaign to promote him. Does anyone know if there are rules or legalities to know about. I can't seem to find any info on it. I see lots of sites with his stuff and others and I find it hard to believe they got permission somewhere to do it.

Thanks for your help!! Ron Paul 2012!!!!

Ron Paul is going to win the "bet" this time and WIN!!!!!!
YAY!!! It's time to organize and restore the republic!!!!!third time is a charm baby!!!!
