The DC neocons think their old dream is about to come true. They think they can defeat me in the Republican congressional primary in Texas on March 4th. And you know what? They may be right.

My opponent, who describes himself as a traditional conservative, is a dedicated servitor of all the special interests who have given us the disaster of recent years, from unconstitutional wars to a looming recession, from huge deficits to massive new welfare programs.

A Republican operative allied with the worst forces in DC recently said: "Give what you can [to Ron Paul's opponent]. Ron Paul is running scared -- using his Presidential campaign's donors' money to subsidize a desperate last-minute attempt to save his Congressional seat."

That is a lie, of course. It is illegal to use presidential campaign donations in my congressional race. The congressional campaign has to stand on its own. But so far, we have raised only about a third of what a well-funded effort would need.

In my 10 terms in Congress, I have not only been able to serve my constituents, and help them, for example, negotiate federal red-tape. I have also been able to defend our principles of less spending, lower taxes, no inflation, and strict adherence to the Constitution. Some people in DC laugh at the idea that I should obey my oath of office, and ask first of any proposed legislation, is it constitutional? But I know that you share my support for the vision of the framers.

My friend Congressmen Wayne Gilchrest (R-Maryland) was just defeated in his primary election by a neocon fraud similar to the one I face. My friend Walter Jones (R-North Carolina) is under heavy pressure as well. People like our hand-picked opponents will do anything to gain and keep power. They represent everything that is wrong with DC.

If I am defeated in the upcoming congressional primary, our ideas will be held to have been defeated as well. It will be proclaimed from the rooftops in DC that such "ridiculous and outmoded notions" as the free market, sound money, personal liberty, limited government, and a pro-American foreign policy are through.

I am determined not to let this happen. All that you and I believe in is far too important to the future of our country, and to everyone and everything we love, to let the neocons dance on its grave.

Please, help me stop the lies, the distortions, the pressure groups, the special interests that benefit from DC rip-offs. There is still time to run radio and tv ads, to set up phone banks, to get out the vote. But unless you help, my reelection to Congress may be in jeopardy. Please help me return to Congress to fight for the people of my district, and for the ideas that can save our country from the path to trouble we are now on.

I hesitated to ask you, since you have already done so much. But my wife Carol said, "When you need help, you ask your best friends." So I do ask you, to hold out your hand in support.

Please give today http://www.ronpaulforcongress.com/ (link fixed) as generously and as quickly as you can.

Speaking of support...

I hope this isn't too off subject but I recall three young ladies awhile back stating that they were ashamed to be from the same State as George W. Bush for the obvious reasons. Now that Ron Paul has stepped up to offer his country a remedy for all the damage the Bush and Clinton families have inflicted will the Dixie Chicks use their high profile status and endorse our next President?

Bump. Let's get it done!

Let's hit the 7 figure mark before the weekend.


It's your movement, Ron. Run with it.

I'll be happy to fund Ron's next venture, but not as a Congressman. He should do some serious soul-searching and think about moving on to the next stage in his life.

He cannot affect any serious changes from within the system, and anyone who thinks he's doing better for the country by sitting in Congress is just nuts.

I'd contribute to his efforts to carry out his vision for our country as an influencer of politics, not as a politician.

Unfortunately Ron is not a Revolution material!
Look Obama , he fulls the crowd by saying nothing, nada!
Ron has the substance but can not get attention!
Conclusion: Not the issues are important but how you drive the people crazy! You got it guys?

LOL...but Obama's crowd doesn't really want....

him to say anything. If they TRULY wanted change they would be here with us.

That's All Folks - Keep Giving to Ron Paul

Time to hit the mute button for me; i have really enjoyed this site and have learned so much. Thanks, especially to Michael. Excellent job. I will check back curious to see if this site shuts down eventually (after gen election) or morphs into something else. For me it has been a unique teaching aid, among other things.

So, keep supporting Dr. Ron Paul, a GREAT American.

God Bless You All.
Thanks again.

Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight 7:01 PST (Feb 20)

I Will Send a Check. I got this letter via email the other day. I decided i must give some $ to Dr. Paul for this Congressional fight. I can't afford much; my CC company hates me right now, partly cuz i suppose i overextended myself with the Presidential campaign. But we must keep RP in the system, as a politician. So i do hope we all help him with this. I would make calls or whatever too if that was practical.

WHAT IS THE TIMETABLE PLEASE, ON HELPING? Who has some ideas on that? Maybe i can find something more online. Thanks.

P.S. See Lunar Eclipse - i don't know how this works in other time zones, sorry. Maybe only CA will be dark enuf? I don't really know. I would have to logically think about it.

Funny - I heard about the moon thing too LOL

Thanks for all your help in the good fight!

Excellent! Based on the

Excellent! Based on the comment at the end of Dr. Paul's email which reads "as generously and as quickly as you can," I assume the contributions are needed sooner rather than later.

Thank You Honeybeel for Your Hard Work!!!

Ron Paul for Congress is now just $120,000.00 away from being a Well Funded Congressional Rel-election Campaign as defined by Ron Paul in his e-mail to his best friends yesterday.

$1,050,000.00 is our Goal as fast as we as the Ron Paul Grassroots can contribute to:


Thank you again Honeybee!!! I hope other Texans in District 14 are coming to the aid of their best friend and Congressman......

Dr.Carley doing a great job waking the We The People

Please spread this around Folks. The Ron Paul folks are good at doing this since I posted the article of Obama and you guys went to the websites to check it out and, did spread the word. So please spread/hear Dr. Carley's Wed. Feb.20th show at following website.

She has a guest that explains how the corrupt government is destroying our freedoms.

Please spread this around since the guest Lt. Eric Shine tell it all since he's a whisleblower and trying to wake the american people up.

Please spread this around. The "We The People" need to know this.

Dr. Carley is on every Wednesday at

Also, listen to Cashflow with John Stadtmiller & James Martinez. See how the BANKERS are ripping us off thru credit cards.



just did some phone canvassing

here in rp's own town. i must say that if my phone calls were any indication of the support in his own town, he would win with 75% of the voting public. i was very encouraged. it was a good thing to do. it was our meetup group - about 10 of us participated this evening. me and dodobogo went to the college where early voting is taking place. that was also very encouraging. i still have hope - much hope that he will do well in texas.

Let's keep the funds coming

Let's keep the funds coming in! We can reach our goal.

Ron Paul's alleged Presidential campaign difficulties

Given the unfortunate existence of an EXTREMELY hostile Party establishment, on both the Federal and State (Texas) levels, the nearly complete media embargo, and the existence of a hugh field of dull-witted, prowar, pro big government, and pro inflation neocon clones polluting the Republican field, it is downright AMAZING that we have got as far as we have.

Short of divine intervention comparable to the raising of Lazarus, or the parting of the Red Sea, it is impossible to imagine how we could have done any better than we have--and there is still at least ten months to go!!

To me

It pretty much looks like divine intervention and a parting of the seas. Look how the candidates-who seemed so big and powerful, have just fallen away. What we have left absolutely should not beat him.

Gotta hair cut today and told them that Ron Paul would do away with tax on tips. The whole place was instantly excited and did not know. So easy.

After I finish calling my precinct, I am calling every hairdresser I can find.

Support the ideas, not just the man

Aw, c'mon. You do realize that the idea is more important than the man? Ron's inability to express our ideas in a direct and personable way also hurt this campaign tremendously. No doubt about that. However, what Ron introduced to the public at large was far, far more important.

Tears at the moment.

I left work early today to cast my vote for Dr Paul. It felt good even though I had questions in the pit of my stomach. I even watched the counter flip...from 915 to 916.

I got home, cell phone rings, it's my sister. I said, "Well I just voted for our little Ronnie" and she proceeded to tell me (perceiving that I did not know) that he is going to announce tomorrow...

I told her "what?" "I am in shock..." "I must hang up now...."

So I logged on here to ... I don't know exactly...maybe to make my last post...

I am feeling quite ashamed about being "American" - what does it even mean anymore if Dr Paul and his family are ridiculed instead of thanked for all their dedication to our country's freedoms and values? And he fights more insidious evil in his home district and state, this man who stood by them and fought for them...appallingly a disgusting neocon may take his place.

I am sick at heart, and in tears. All I can do is turn to my dear sister, my few loyal friends, and my Lord. I feel that I am aware of the dark times that loom just around the corner.

dailypaul has been a source of camaraderie and information and awareness and support. What will happen to this site? Thank you Michael for your tireless efforts and help for Dr Paul, and for giving us this forum.

Thanks to all of you who contributed...even the negative ones I suppose...as it demonstrates the tiny bit of freedom we still have left...

Thank you all, I wish you all well...and it is so very encouraging, to have "run into" so many like-minded people - for that, we must say "thank you, Dr Paul."

p.s. Dear Dr Paul, please start your own country, maybe Montana, since Texas is too hot and they are rejecting you anyway. Old America won't cut us off because they will need us; we will be the smartest and best. They will pay us for our inventions and doctoring and symphonies and engineering and writing and programming and designing and imagination and vision and determination and ultimately they will call on us to bail them out. Please Dr Paul - if you build it, we will come.

What the heck is this?

This hasn't happened. This is the second one of these I have seen. If this is not true--what is this. I really, really hate this post.

Dear MissDavenport, don't cry - be exited and happy.

What you fear hasn't happen.
What was that speech.
"We have nothing to fear buy fear itself."
Yes RP has a people trying to bring him down, but because he was and is feared. Those that want him in history are few and we are many.
Don't cry!
Ron isn't campaigning but pulling in the same %. Hmm that's odd!
We fight to victory.
Never has a tail wagged the dog so much.
And I don't see no fat lady.
We are going to a brokered convention.
They can't stop it.
Abraham Lincoln had 22 delegates and won the Presidency.
Ron has 40 to 200 right now.
Poor Abraham, he shouldn't have tried.

Watch and feel the power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Watch and feel the power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not fair, you ask me not to cry & show me that video..thank you!

Thanks for your sentiments. And that beautiful video reminder!
Every American should be sat down and forced to watch that.
I will continue to pray for and support Dr Paul and all his friends and do what I can to keep our dream alive...God bless..

A dream

is powerful, really think about it, everything that has been manifested, started as a thought, a dream, so the more people that are unified the more energy is put behind the vision to create the reality of it.



On the offchance we lose...

This may be a premature question but on the offchance that we lose our Congressional seat to Mr. CPA, does anyone think the door would reopen for a 3rd Party/Independent run if we don't get the Republican nomination? Just curious what people think about this, thanks.

If he loses Congressional Primary... he MAY run 3rd Party...

But ONLY for the Congressional seat.
