Ron Paul approval list

Wouldn't it be nice if Ron gave us a list of people that he recommends to vote for? We could start cleaning up this mess right away. He, of course, will not know many of them to recommend, but some for sure. If he didn't know them and they wanted his endorsement, they could interview with him.

We are all mostly guessing when it comes time to vote as we are busy day to day and don't have time to study these candidates. If the right people get elected to start, we'd have a whole lot less problems.

We Should Focus on Ron Paul

As you can see, changing the focus can quickly lead to nothing but infighting. Let's focus on what we all agree on: RON PAUL SHOULD BE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT.

Although I'm re-registering Republican in California (still waiting for the postcard to sign and return) just so I can vote for Dr. Paul in the primary, I was not a Republican before. Many people here can probably say the same. We could easily lose focus by concentrating on other issues. IMHO, this is NOT the place for other issues if we really want to concentrate on getting Ron Paul elected.

Help

Hey, do the letter writing campaign.... pick some zip codes and post them up for California. See SEND LETTERS NOW in the forum.

Focusing on Ron

Electing Ron is our main purpose, but without the votes of other like-minded people in office, he will not be able to accomplish near enough. This is why I had brought this up originally. it is as important as proper voting tallies, having delegates in support of Ron, and getting people to register Republican (and thank you for doing so-I changed also).

I do understand your concern, and yes, we need to spend most of our time on promoting Ron Paul.

I Understand What You're Saying

As Confucius said, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." There's possibly widely divergent opinion on what the second step should be, but that first step is a doosie! Let's all take it together, and get Ron Paul elected!

he wouldn't do it

Ron Paul would probably encourage you to look into all the candidates and issues, and decide on your own.

However I would love to hear his opinions on some of the other politicians and their policies.

Thank you overcominghope and rp-_army....

That's all I'm saying: His recommendations would be nice. We the People should always do the research. I too don't trust most doctors when their first thought is to give you a pill that causes damage to another organ...instead of telling them to exercise and eat right which is almost always the true answer. I have done much research and experiments on this issue and absolutely encourage others.

Another reason I like Dr. Paul. He thinks, unlike our bought FDA, that natural medicine has a place.

I see nothing wrong with asking

DoubleOh,
I see nothing wrong with asking him about other politicians. I don't consider it "lazy" to ask someone you trust for their informed opinion. Lazy would be to vote for a candidate on faith without asking any questions about the issues or checking their voting record. Who knows, he could even bring peoples' attention to a few third party candidates in/running for lower offices. This could introduce us to some excellent new political faces we may otherwise never have seen.

I think more regular people would run for office if they didn't have to work so hard for so little of their earnings. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go read some medical books and perform surgery on myself because I don't trust the skills and knowledge of doctors far more educated than I.

Also, the words teacher and messenger come to mind before hero.

Servant government

I didn't call anybody lazy. I meant it when I said that the people who have never before been involved in politics should run for office, a whole new generation of congressmen and senators that are not career politicians.

Would you swallow a pill or get surgery without doing any research yourself because your doctor recommends it? I wouldn't.
Knowing that someone has worked with Ron or has a good relationship with him would elevate that person in my eyes, but the idea of asking him for a list of "Ron-Paul-approved politicians" is how we got into this mess in the first place: being led from the top down. If we bend and bow at Dr. Paul's beck, how could we have any oversight of his presidency? If we're getting our guidance from one central source, how long will it be before our thinking stagnates?

This entire revolution is of the people, Ron represents us because he shares our ideals and he has a record of integrity that can be trusted. I believe it would be the death of the movement to be dictated to by any single leader. Teachers and messengers deliver information, we are electing Ron to do more than that. Lou Dobbs, Alex Jones, or whatever blog you get your info from is the messenger, Ron is an active agent of change and we should not forget that the more we lean on anyone or anything, the more power we lose.

If Ron did come up with a list, I would probably end up voting for people on it, but saying "Please instruct us as to what we should do" is not the right way to go.

Nope

We did not "get into this mess" by listening to Ron Paul. We got into this mess by electing people that we have no clue as to what their real intent is....and most of the time it's not good for us.

"I would proabably end up voting for people on it": I'm sorry you would vote for people exclusively on Ron's list. I would hope you would be smarter than that and check them out further.

I do agree that there would be many new, capable people (many right here on Dailypaul perhaps) that the good Doctor would be unaware of. He could only suggest considering people he was familiar with which would leave many out....but some is better than none.

Maybe Mike Nystrom will continue this site after the election and Ron and/or his son could give some or their thoughts on candidates and other issues on occassion.

Enough of this.....going out to promote Ron now.

List of Senators to get rid of in 08

I don't know who Paul would recommend to put in but here is a list of Senators to get rid of in 08, if they are up for reelection.

http://liberty-central.blogspot.com/2007/09/senators-who-vot...

Please stop..

Please stop spreading this FUD! Senator SUNUNU is one of our BEST and if you allow a Democrat in, you will get nothing but the nanny state and taxes and more controls on your life.

I will be working to support Senator Sununu. Please, if you are in NH do not even think of supporting his opposition.

Better Choices

If there is no better choice go with the most conservative or lesser of two evils if you must in your state, but we all know just because they have an R besides their name doesn't mean jack or that they're conservative.

Don't censor my spreading truth, please.

Truth?

I would say at this point, working to defeat Sununu would be to aid and abet the nanny socialist state. Is that what you really want to do?

Please do not be advocating that people vote out candidates whom they know little about.

His voting record is something he owns

I have no control how he votes, of if it is conservative or not.

Half the reason we are in the mess we are in is because people have become complacent with the status quo of the lesser of two evils.

There is no other Constitutional Party or Libertarian you can vote for or support in NH?

Anyway, if he is the most conservative candidate and there is no other who is more conservative, then vote for him, but he is for pre-emptive war with Iran, which in my opinion is not conservative.

He would be better than the alternative..

We may not agree on that issue but he would be a whole lot better to be convinced than someone who is 20% on our side. With him we've got 80%.

Find someone better before you advocate the 'worst' of what you believe is two evils.

Great Idea

This is actually a great idea. Dr. Ron started a group in congress called the Liberty carcass. This is a group of people with the same liberty ideals that Dr. Ron has.

I don't know if they have a website but I would love to see the membership list.

He said there is about 30 people in it I believe.

If we can eventually rally up all the meetup groups to look for a libertarian candidate with the same ideals as Ron Paul, we can start putting people in congress that would finally work in the interest of Americans.

There is a website that had a list of people in congress and in state government that has the same ideals as Dr. Paul. I lost the site. Anyone know it? If I find it i'll post it.

Liberty carcass

I think (or at least hope) that you meant "Liberty Caucus".

Drain the swamp!

Too Funny!

Yep, a Liberty Caucus and a No-Liberty Carcus!

Even better

Instead of having him recommend people, why don't we just let him appoint people. Every Judge, Rep, Senator, just let Ron choose because he is so smart and we are so inferior to him that we are incapable of informing ourselves.

A hero is the worst thing that can happen to a people, because the people become reliant, and weak, and the hero leaves or dies and the people are vulnerable to the next leader is not so benevolent. I recommend that you read some books and run for office yourself if you really want to clean things up.

Who better than

What are there now, something like over 50000 meetup groups now. Who better to get new blood in and get the crap out of washington than the very people who support Ron Paul. We got Ron Paul coming in to save the day, right? But, what if.... and there are a lot of those.. What ifs. Heres one , What if, "they" pulled a Kennedy on Ron Paul. Whos going to save us now??? Ron Paul can not save us on his own, YES it is our duty to do what we can to get him elected but he can not do what needs to be done on his own, WE THE PEOPLE have got to get in to office also to continue on this fight for freedom and liberty, so if that What if happens, the fight does not end, that this evil veil that hangs over us all does not over come us.

I agree

We cannot count on Ron being around forever and to do all the research for us. Since there is such a strong following of free thinking mavericks that support him, it would be nice in the future if there was a specific site that we could go to and get his recommendations and thoughts or that of people he trusts......such as his son.

Being mavericks, and he would encourage it, do the research from there. To my knowledge, there is not such a site where you can go for dependable information and many sites that have false information. Lewrockwell.com is great, but they just mainly tell about the bad ones,

Not the cure-all, but would help us make better, more informed decisions.

DoubleO.....

Yes, by all means, let's keep going down the same path and see where we are in a few years. If the past is any indication, it will be in HELL! You totally miss the point and the response is a short-sighted one. Do you always take people's recommendations? Obviously not, and either do the rest of us.

I simply said that if we knew that Ron was in favor of these people, we would more likely get a much better result at voting time. People would hopefully do some research of these people, but better than just a guessing game as most people do. Ron does NOT cast the votes, it would be merely to have his recommendation which is better than eny meny miny mo.

I commend you if you are one that studies all candidates, but in the real world, most do not. If Ron were wrong substantially on his recommendations, the people would know if they got elected and were not quality and people wouldn't take those recommendations in the future. This would be quite the "candid world" you speak of.

Sadly, most people don't even take the time to study the Presidential candidates as evidenced by this campaign, so you really expect this country to start studying every single candidate running for every position? Please wake up and smell the coffee!

limited government people don't want that much power

As a limited government guy, i don't want to give Ron Paul, although i might trust him more than others, that kind of power. For instance, i can't agree with many things regarding Dennis Kucinich (sp?) and i heard Ron Paul once say that they agree on several things. Maybe Ron would or would not recomend him, but based on my reading, i wouldn't vote for him. I choose my candidates and I don't want Ron Paul, nor anyone esle for that matter, to do it for me.

Ron Paul Approval

Along the same lines how about a Ron Paul PAC? Candidates that agree with RP would receive contributions. That would give RP more influence in congress and it would tell us which candidates are worthy of our support.

Sounds like Hillary

Take a well-intended idea, and twist it so it sounds absurd. I think you may need to stop watching t.v.
