Paul tells Nevada convention that GOP must restore U.S. confidence Great Read!

SPARKS - Whipping up his supporters, presidential candidate Ron Paul on Saturday told Nevada Republicans the party has a chance to defeat President Barack Obama but first must restore American confidence.

Paul said people have become disenchanted with Republicans because GOP leaders in Congress have continued to spend too much money and drive up the nation's debt.

At the same time, Paul said the public has become even more upset with Obama for expanding government, waging war without congressional authority, hiking taxes and interfering with personal liberties, including health care decisions.

"So there's a lot of reason for us to be optimistic, politically, that we can unseat this president," Paul said in a 15-minute speech to the state GOP convention packed with his backers. "But I think it's very important we restore confidence in the Republican Party We cannot win, or we cannot change the country, if our goal is to maintain the status quo."

Just remember...The status

Just remember...

The status quo got the US into the fix it is in now. If you think the status quo will make things better, you deny history. The status quo almost always ends violently with many thousands of dead and injured. The arab spring is just the most recent example.

Shouldn't a peaceful way be sought first. Ron Paul is not the status quo. He guarantees change.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.


Ron Paul told them like it is and was very optimistic about it, and Romney was diplomatic. Awesome!

Now to get the real T(axed)E(nough)A(lready) people to take a closer look and realize Ron Paul is the most electable.


Good read.
