Age of Ron Paul - Juan Williams - Fox News Opinion

Juan Williams has been saying this is the Age of Ron Paul for months. Numerous other commentators are saying similar things about Paul. Thanks to liberals for the great marketing of Ron Paul. This could garner more votes, but of course RP cannot do it alone without a staff of advisors to provide feedback and keep updating high-level strategy to take RP's broad message to a level that more people can understand during debates and interviews just as he has been able to do during campaign speeches where he gets crowds roaring.

Do people believe that this is the Age of Ron Paul? Does he deserve credit for wanting to reign in the federal reserve bank, educating people on the core root of America's decline and how to fix it, shaping debates, warning people of the detrimental effects of phoney wars, and shaping the philosophy behind the tea party movement? His campaign speeches are more amazing than those of Obama and get across RP's appeal and value. However, how is this credit and achievements portrayed in debates, interviews, and ads?

My opinion is that Romney would disappoint conservatives and get Obama re-elected, but then again I have yet to hear any critiques of Romney other than from Obama's team. An opinion written by Juan Williams on Foxnews.com:

Last week Ron Paul refused to rule out running as a third party candidate if he loses the Republican nomination.
That opens the door for Ron Paul to run as an independent what could the most the biggest, most consequential third party candidacy in American history. Yes, one that is even bigger than Ross Perot’s candidacy was in the 90s.
According to a Gallup poll taken in May, 52% Americans say a third major political party is needed. Only 40% say the two current parties do an adequate job of representing the American people. In the same vein, a CNN poll in September found that 54 percent of people have an unfavorable view of the Republican Party and 48 percent feel the same way about the Democrats.

Point of posting is to understand/discuss Age of Ron Paul

credit for age of ron paul doesn't seem to appeal to a lot of people? instead of bashing this posting, i think i would take juan williams's opinion as positive in many respects, and appreciate the marketing this provided which is something that even his own campaign have yet to provide.

that is unless someone like peter schiff comes in and takes over the ropes.

Dr.Paul is a REPUBLICAN and

Dr.Paul is a REPUBLICAN and the other candidates are not,they are only republican in name.Libertarians and other parties need to stop this third party talk and vote for him based on the issues and his honesty and credibility not on what his party label is.

We Are the Fire...

...held to the feet of "Republicans".

Libertutionists and Constitarians both. As long as the "third party" threat persists, "Republicans" will gravitate toward our goals.

I continue to support The Good Doctor BECAUSE he is a libertarian and a constitutionalist and a proper federalist, and I will vote for him whether he runs as a "Republican" or a "Libertarian" or an "Independent."

If mainstream "Republicans" are stupid enough to nominate Obama (disguised as Romney), then I will vote for Dr Paul or Chuck Baldwin or Joe Schmeau or whomever the federalist option is in my state, and will cheerfully accept four more years of Barry Bush over Slick Willard if it comes to that.

Only MONEY talks.....

I have been around since the Ford Presidency... and I can tell you MONEY is the game.

Nov 5th Money Bomb? We should make it the best ever!

In was THAT 2007 money bomb that put Ron Paul in the national Public Spotlight....

The question is, can we do it again?

Yes, please BUY this wonderful libertarian BOOK! We all must know the History of Freedom! Buy it today!

"The System of Liberty: Themes in the History of Classical Liberalism" ...by author George Smith --
Buy it Here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/05211820

11/5??

I believe the next bomb is Nov. 11th....

Since RP running indie would hand Obama a 2nd term,

I don't understand the risk that the GOP is taking by NOT making Paul their candidate in the first place! Duh. You would think that this could be a "barginning chip"....either start pushing for Ron Paul...or you'll lose to the Dems. No brainer.

Are you listening to Ralph Nader and Jesse Ventura?

Ventura was the highest official elected by a third party (Reform) in modern times. Jesse Ventura has reached out to the Libertarians, suggest they nominate Ron Paul. Ralph Nader cost Al Gore the 2000 election and ran on the Green Party ticket in 2004. Ralph Nader has hinted of a progressive-libertarian alliance, which could men the Green Party might nominate Ron Paul. Chuck Baldwin endorsed Ron Paul in 2008, then ran as the Constitution Party candidate for president.
Ron Paul was on the ballot for President in 2008 in several states when state chapters of the Libertarians and Constitution Party placed him there. So, the five largest third parties (including Reform) may nominate Ron Paul by acclimation; something that would simply require a change in their by-laws. That would likely guarantee Ron Paul ballot access in 49 of 50 states. If that happens, I'm certain Oklahoma would change its draconian "ballot access" law and Ron Paul would be on the ballot in all 50 states. Based on my 50+ years in politics, I am certain Ron Paul would win a three man race with Barack Obama and the GOP's "anyone but Ron Paul" candidate.

Ralph Nader was and s an Independent, not a Democrat.

Had Ralph Nader spent 20 years in the Democratic Party and then go Indy to run against Gore in Y2K, I would agree, that he would be a "spoiler", but Ralph Nader had a message for the RIGHT, which is why Libertarians like me, who had been registered Libertarian since 1976, registered "Decline to State PArty" and went to work for Nader, who said, NO to the UN Agenda and why there is NO difference between parties. The Green Party SPLIT over Nader because of his anti-NWO, there became GPUSA and Green Party International, Ralph Nader has never joined any party. So he's not a spoiler. Ron Paul would be a spoiler because he is a bona fide member of the GOP.

My hope is Ron Paul will continue to be a guilding light in the GOP, after all Rand is in the GOP, so I don't see Ron Paul abandoning us for those who didn't follow him, but banked on us failing or even having him become a spoiler. That's not Ron Paul or Ralph Nader. It's just MSM LIES.

echo echo

And in states with "sore loser" laws prohibiting losing primary contenders from contesting the general election, CAROL or RAND Paul could fill the spot and direct their Electors to vote for RON Paul.

Copyright Violation ?

It is my understanding that you will not cause Michael Nystrom, owner of this website, copyright problems if you only post a short excerpt as part of a "review" and then invite people to link to the original.

Where we may have a problem is when you post the whole thing. This deprives the author and/or owner of the writing of the traffic he would have gotten (most writers get paid based on traffic, viewers, audience share, etc.).

Please just give us a taste of the article, and then link to it.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

ok - age of ron paul

ok to providing link to article versus copying and pasting it here.

the point of this posting was to gear supporters to focusing on how to use Age of Ron Paul in marketing RP to garner votes. but it appears noone is interested in this as one tool or idea to broaden voter base. regardless, i think juan williams will keep saying age of ron paul even if some do not want to give rp credit.

I don't think this poster cares if it will hurt DP

He/She has been trolling around here since opening an account 2 weeks ago and changing names already. Check the history of comments under this user.

My advice would be to avoid commenting anymore on this article and let it fall off the side bar.

They Don't Say He'd Win

They say he'd cost somebody else the election.

They don't get it.

Why not?

I don't believe Ron Paul will abandon those of us who joined the GOP to nominate and turn this party/country back to the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. As a Republican, he will continue to have a major role in shaping the GOP, and country, whether he is elected or not.

By going Indy, he would appease those who didn't have the will or courage to follow him into the GOP and that would hurt those of us who have put ourselves on the line for him.

cop out if not run as 3rd pty

rp is a libertarian republican, and not a repubican in the sense that bush, bachmann, mccain, rush limbaugh, boehner, glenn beck, and oreilly are republicans.

hence, at some point, you need to be tough and say hey i tried to take back the old repubican party before it got hijacked by neocons and now i am creating a third party to give the american people back the power from the neocons who do not mean limited government.

as rp said his message appeals to independents and liberls. so those who do not register as republicans from being independent does not mean they are weak or have no will. it means the person running for office has to do the work to convince voters as it is their race and can't fault other people for not buying the product when that product has not been marketed well.

Ron Paul was vetted in the Libertarian Party

MSM has sold Americans a lie about the GOP, blaming Bush, what have you. The GOP's only a tool, and we can take it, and by taking it, lead it back to the USA Constitution and Bill of Rights,, rather than a UN-NATO NWO.

It is WEAK of those who did not believe Ron Paul enough to follow him into the GOP, rather believe MSM LIES about the GOP and stop good people from joining the GOP and REALLY making a difference.

Thanks...

Thanks...
