A buddy of mine who is also as big into guitars as I am, wrote and sings this song called "The Ballad of Rudy McRomney".
You can hear it by simply going to Ron's page on my calendar site and it will start. You can stop it with the controls.
The Ballad of Rudy McRomney by Matt Simon, NH
The House of Representatives just narrowly defeated an amendment to deny funds to operate Vice President Dick Cheneyâ€™s office. Cheney had insisted that his office is exempt from Executive Department oversight by arguing that he is not part of that department. Rep. Rahm Emanuel proposed the amendment as a counter to that incredible claim.
As an American History teacher, I have had the opportunity to teach my perspective on the American Revolution for over five years now. As I leave the classroom and enter the administration aspect of education, I am forced to reflect on the comparisons between the American Revolution that we learn about in school, and the rEVOLution that is taking place in our nation today with the presidential election of 2008.
An update for those who haven't heard yet - the attempt to shove an amnesty bill down the throats of Americans has failed in the U.S. Senate. The people of American rose up and faxed, called, emailed, and wrote letters to their representatives in Congress. Fearing the backlash of the people, 18 senators who previously voted yes to pass this legislation, switched their vote to "NO". Chalk one up for the people. Next on the agenda - Get Congressman Paul nominated as the Republican nominee for President.
Thank you, everyone for your continued support of Ron Paul and the DailyPaul.com. For the first time ever, last week the site passed 4,000 visitors in one day, and not two days later passed 5,000. Yesterday, thanks in part to the bump from the Wired News article that mentioned the site, we hit an all time high of 5236 visitors in one day. This is 100% growth since the end of May, and tremendous growth from back in February, when Ron Paul's grandson Matt Pyeatt started blogging on the site. Back then, 400 visitors was a good day!
Of course these figures are just reflecting the larger trend moving through society. There is a hunger for truth that is not being fulfilled by MSM and the current political leadership. Ron Paul just passed 18,000 YouTube subscribers. This is tops, by far, of any of the candidates.
"(AP) Republican Ron Paul to Crash Iowa Forum"
By AMY LORENTZEN

DES MOINES, Iowa
Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will add party crashing to his campaign tactics this weekend.
Have you had enough? Write to AP and tell them that when someone has a party, he invites his supporters, rents the hall and pays for the food, he's not 'crashing' anything.
At least the Boston Herald online had the good sense not to use that headline...however the first line of the article is still misleading and downright false.
I can't find the article, but a google search of "Keyes Iowa Caucus" returns quite a few entries. If I remember right he came in second with 14%. I would note that it was mainly the work of one man who cajoled as many delegates to get to the caucuses and vote.
I was an Alan Keyes supporter in 2000, and he had a fraction of the exposure, name recognition, much less the supporters then as Ron Paul has now. Nor was the internet as integral to the process as it is now.
Paul and Keyes do share the philosophy of the founding fathers.

I ran across this blog sent to Ron Paul's MySpace and I could not help but post it here on www.dailypaul.com
Why I support Ron Paul
Current mood: Inspired

I do not profess to know the scope of human history, nor do I understand the intricacies of economics, sociology, political intrigue, the machination of government, the intent of man, or the will of God.
But I do know that all of these things have a Champion, and his Name is Ron Paul.
Here is a beautiful article about Dr. Paul written by Joseph Sobran and reprinted on Pat Buchanan's blog:
"He may have become at last what he has always deserved to be: the most respected member of the U.S. Congress. He is also the only Republican candidate for president who is truly what all the others pretend to be, namely, a conservative. His career shows that a patriotic, pacific conservatism isnâ€™t a paradox."
Below is the resulting article that I told you was being written last week when I asked for your comments on why Ron Paul is THE internet candidate. The Wired story is decent article in that it gets Dr. Paul's name out there, but again, it tends to focus more on the detractors in the meat of the article. The Daily Paul gets only a brief notice at the end of the article. Your comments on the story are welcome and appreciated!!! Start reading below - click over to Wired to finish reading the piece.
Ron Paul: How a Fringe Politician Took Over the Web

When Texas Congressman Ron Paul entered the race for next year's Republican presidential nomination, few political analysts paid much notice.

Good news (actually, great news): The Ron Paul 2008 campaign is growing!
Bad news: Weâ€™ve run out of space to work.
The Ron Paul 2008 campaign started in the corner of a one-bedroom apartment. It then moved to a small office of 348 square feet, which is where we are now. But our present office has become too small to accommodate the fast-growing campaign...and we need your help to expand.
