Ron Paul for Texas Senate

Just a random thought...

As I get more involved with the Texas Republican party I am meeting some of the early front runners for the soon to be vacant Kay Baily Hutchinson Senate seat. While some of them are good people, and some even some are sympathetic to the cause of liberty none are named Ron Paul.

Texas is wide open for Dr Paul to run for Senate. I would love for us as a group to try and encourage him to put his name in the hat for the vacant seat. He routinely tells us he was "surprised" by the response he received as he ran for president; let us surprise him again with emails and phone calls letting him know that in Texas the cause of liberty lives and we want him as our Senator!

Love your feed back.... I think Dr Paul is a great legislator and the Senate could be a very attainable position for him!

Sounds good to me

I'd rather have him as Texas governor, but he is not interested. I'd rather have him as President, but not sure he is running again. Rather have him as Secretary of the Treasury, but that ain't gonna happen.

He may think the way we choose Senators is not honorable. They are suppose to be chosen by the state government.

I think he would be comfortable moving over, but then he would possibly not put in a bid for president. Right??? Maybe he still could, if he would. Hutchison is running for governor and then president, my understanding.

Good Point

he may have a problem with the process... id love to see what his thoughts are...

Why? What benefit would it

Why?
What benefit would it be?
The house of reps has more "power" then the senate concerning laws.
In my opinion the "judge" would be more beneficial in the senate.
Other then president,moving him around will achieve nothing.He must be surrounded with like minded individuals.The key to this is the federal reserve and it's abolishment.If no candidate will address this problem then they are not a candidate that I would support.

Wow!

Are you serious Jeff? That is ridiculous . . . I mean, the Senate is without a doubt the more influencial of the two chambers. At the most elementary level, 1/100th is greater than 1/435th. Beyond that, the Senate gets roughly 100 times the media exposure, has authority over presidential appointments (not to mention the ability to grill them on global televison durning the confirmation hearings), and what about the Filibuster? Dr. Paul would be the only Senator in the game that would put principle above party and reelection. How could anyone make a valid argument that a seat in the Senate is not better than Representing the 14th District?

Also...

Senators are electable for President, as a general rule, and Congressmen are not.

I agree

Judges have POWER and Ron Paul could teach those who are in POWER over our libety a thing like the US Constitution?

By "judge" I'm referring to

By "judge" I'm referring to Napolitano.

My bad

I thought you had an original brilliant idea, after all SCOTHUS gave us Bush, and since they die on the bench, and one appears to be exiting (Ginsberg)... what a brilliant way for Ron Paul's principles to get US back.

He copuld serve until he chose not to, rather than four years... and since MSM thinks Ron Paul is in the wrong party.. seems to me, he would not have a hard time winning a permante seat on the bench.

Please help me

You are saying that 1 Congressman has more power than 1 Senator? Im not sure I follow that please explain...

Sorry,I should have added

Sorry,I should have added spending to that.Again,In my opinion the senate is inferior to the house because they are elected by the people and not rightfully by the states as intended.The structure of the republic has been altered into a democracy.

Count me in

Ron Paul as a Senator would be great.

Ill move to Texas

to vote for him if he runs. Hows that for support!

Sen. Ron Paul

While I would love to believe that Dr. Paul could garner the support and money to win the Senate seat down here in God's country, I can't help but notice that there is not even enough interest in this subject to keep this thread at the top of the fourm. That is a little troublesome considering the passionate support that would be necessary to defeat whomever get's the GOP's blessing. I have to believe that if we could muster the kind of support we had during the Presidential Primary, it would be a very close and pivotal Senate race.

I think it would be

I think it would be great..and quite doable...I'd certainly love to hear his thoughts on this...RUN RON RUN!!!

Email

Not sure if this is the best email for him but here is a link to an email address... let him know you want him to run...
