To The Students in Iowa-Thank you!

All day today we read incredible stories about you....observations, all admirable, even from old media. The fact that we are all disappointed takes nothing away from the gratitude, respect and admiration we have for all of the foot soldiers in Iowa, but particularly the students who gave up Christmas vacations to help save our country. As a parent and mother, I would be proud to have any of you as my son or daughter.

I think about those brave patriots who went out and lost their lives to hold up the flag even as the rockets were bursting all around them. Your dedication over the past few weeks makes you all Patriots of the highest degree. Go back to your communities and schools, or on to New Hampshire, and spread your stories and let's show everyone that the enthusiasm of the Revolution doesn't stop in Iowa...we were just getting our feet wet. In fact, we are all invigorated and know truth will win out in the end.

Thank you for fighting the weather, the old media, the naysayers and the corporate/military industrial complex. The revolution is young...we are only beginning and we won't turn back and we will spread hope for as long as it takes to take our Republic back and give it to the people.

You guys did great and what lessons you taught us about perseverance even as you passed your Oral and got an advanced degree in Patriotism and activism. You will be our future even as you are now such an important force in our present.

You certainly gained the respect of this old heart. Don't give up. Hold firm. Revolutions are not won in a day, or month, or year, andt sometimes it takes many years. You have time, you are young, and you will never regret or forget the days you spent in a frozen Iowa.


Hang in there and keep the faith.

You're winning the hearts of Americans one at a time by actively demonstrating your interest in Ron Paul and concern for the country. We all thank you for supporting the ONLY candidate that represents American ideals we can all enjoy regardless of party affiliations. This love fest is just getting started ... let's accelerate !

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I am overwhelmed with pride for the people of Iowa and all the volunteers who gave so much for this.

Thanks for all the hard

Thanks for all the hard work!

to all the Iowa students, you have brought the rEVOLution into the limelight of Republican party nomination of our next President Ron Paul

Thank You!

Let's keep the train rolling!

Thank you, Revolution

I was a student in Iowa, too and I have to say it was an amazing experience. Thanks to all of you who give this revolution the support and fuel that it needs to stay alive! I got to see Dr. Paul three times in Iowa and I am now even more convinced that we're doing the right thing. Iowa was a success and New Hampshire will be an even bigger one!



Valley Forge

As a 43 year old veteran and father of 5 kids, I am obligated to not only congratulate the volunteers in Iowa but also to acknowledge the good character obviously present among this group of young adults. Gives me great hope for this country's future and my kids.

I suggest we dub those Iowa warriors the "Valley Forge" veterans for they did brave the bitter cold, poor food and cramped quarters to fight an important battle in the revolution for Liberty.

You have crossed the river and delivered a surprise message to the establishment. On to Wyoming and N.H !

Michigan votes Jan. 15

and the potential there is AWESOME. OPEN primary, which means the Dems can and will cross over, along with the independents which, as Iowa showed, are Ron's biggest strength.
WHY would they cross over? Because all their candidates, except HRC, pulled out 'coz their party told them to.
AND Ron's grass roots/ brass roots support there is already superb.



This is a victory. Well done. Hang no heads.

There were two ways to win in Iowa:

1) Win outright by trouncing the competition by 20% or 30%
Not what we expected. Not what we got.

2) Stay in the race and establish our presence as real and viable

We beat Giuliani by almost 3 to 1. Where is his haughtiness of May 2007? We got within spitting distance of 3rd place in Iowa without pandering to big-corn. This is nothing short of amazing.

To be perfectly honest. I'm glad we weren't more successful. There were whispers Thompson would drop out if he didn't have a good showing. He would have thrown his support to McCain. Thompson is still in, at least through New Hampshire. That vote stays divided for now which gives us an ideal opportunity to steal some thunder as the pro-war lobby fights over the same pie.

Our volunteers on the ground were and are second to none. Hats off to all of you.

Onward to New Hampshire!

Thank you for your kind words

I was one of the students there... we poured our heart and soul into door-to-door canvassing in the freezing cold by day and phone banking by night- and most were quite down after the results... but it taught us and hopefully everyone else a lesson... this is a long fight for freedom... and it won't happen overnight.
All things considered about IA we did well to garner 10% of the vote... and we actually won a county something that Thompson and McCain failed to do.
Almost all of the students who didn't have school starting this week took off to drive to South Carolina to continue spreading the word about Dr. Paul.
Ladies and Gentleman the r[elov]ution has begun. And just like the 1st one it will be a long struggle- but the message of liberty will prevail!

You've been the deciding difference

between victory and defeat that was on a hairsbreadth. We are in it, we have credibility, after the first cut. And we did better than the polls predicted.

Canvassers like you made the difference.

The other candidates don't have this level of commitment.

You inspire us all!!!

Crammed quarters & freezing cold temperatures all for one goal - Liberty!
Thank you all. 8]

Student Patriots

Hear! Hear!!!



Thanks you did great

You were given an impossible task,make dumb people smart. Just think when Huckabee breaks Pakistan and Iran, we will own them. Then we will fight forever for honor. When the draft comes start with Iowa.


My hair stood up reading your wonderful post.....you just gave me a big second wind.......ooorah, I'll remember that.

My love to our forces and I apologize for not paying closer attention decades ago....please forgive and I promise, it will NEVER happen again, ok?


This Marine thanks you!

We have a word in the Marines that has not been defined, but to every marine out there it is a word that carrys the weight of approval of a job well done and tonight i offer that word to you, OOORAH! You dealt with snow and conditions that kept many inside yet you continued on. So from the guys in Iraq and afgan who want to come home and from us in the states, YOU made us PROUD. THANK YOU ALL.

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well armed lamb contesting the vote."

Thank you

We are in debt to you. Thank you for what you have done for me. If it had not for you, I probably not be able to sleep today.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I wish there was a web sight with all your names. Happy New Year.

We are proud of you...THANK YOU for all your hard work!

It was your effort that pushed Dr. Paul into double digits, something that nobody could have predicted just one quarter ago. We admire and thank you for all of your efforts and hopefully the upcoming states have caught your enthusiasm because the revolution with continue thanks to all you have done. We really appreciate it.


You guys ROCK! Truth at your age is worth more than gold!

Political campaigns last a season, but truth will last you for a lifetime.

You ROCK!!!

Thank You to the IOWA paul-bots! You did great...

...and you should be very proud of yourselves. I am very proud of you for your actions and dedication. We need more free thinking minds, such as yourselves, who exercise the ability to project their thoughts into action. Thank you again!
