http://www.l4l.org/library/bepro-rp.html has the text of something Ron Paul wrote back in 1981. Ron Paul hasn't grown in office or rediscovered or flip-flopped (noting "flipper" was one of those we encountered in Iowa who was there to explain Romney's positions, maybe he was of the class of 7474 (EEs will understand the reference)).
A realignment is taking place. Anti-war, Anti-state (as far as it is utterly stupid), Anti micromanagement, Anti-theft - er, I mean tax (if A and B vote to rob C, why is it called taxation and not theft?).
Albert sends this along:
Jan Mickelson of Des Moines and WHO1040 radio became our hero when he interviewed that Failor guy at Iowa Tax Reform (misnomer). Three minutes into today's (July 11, 2007) program, Jan's guest, Thomas Woods, made very positive observations about Ron Paul.
Ron Paul is making friends wherever he goes. Here's the link for the Ron Paul junkies. If you log on, his website counter will surge and he'll get the message that positive stories about Ron Paul drives traffic. Being in Iowa, we need plenty of exposure in the state.
Paul Bourgeis sends this update from Florida:
Thank you, Paul!
Thanks to the stranger for passing this along. Jay Taylor, a New York based investment adviser, sent this around to his subscribers yesterday:
I suggested in an earlier message today that you should do what you can to help Ron Paul win his bid for the Presidency. Then later this day, I received an email from John Cliffton, who heads a group of people here in NYC who are working hard for Ron.
Many of the ways suggested to help Ron are directed here in New York City and update New York. However, there were a number of activities that are appropriate from all around the country. I am passing those particular ideas along to you in the hope that some of you will be willing and able to do your little part to help this champion of liberty and our Constitution. By the way, the man who is heading up this effort here in Queens New York where your editor lives is a wonderful guy named John Cliffton. John ran for Governor of the State of New York as a libertarian in the last election. John can be reached at email@example.com. In any event here are ways you can help Ron:
The following story illustrates one of the deeper causes of the endless quest for growth that underpins our modern consumer society. The story and adapted comments are from the book The Future of Money (pp. 50 â€“ 53) by Bernard Lietar. Your thoughts, comments and discussion are welcomed and appreciated.
The Eleventh Round
Once upon a time, in a small village in the Outback, people used to barter for all their transactions. On every market day, people walked around with chickens, eggs, hams and breads, and engaged in prolonged negotiations among themselves to exchange what they needed. At key periods of the year, like harvests or whenever someoneâ€™s barn needed repairs after a big storm, people recalled the tradition of helping each other out that they had brought from the old country. They knew that if they had a problem some day, others would aid them in return.
Ladies and Gentleman, Friends and Supporters,
I've listed my copy of the book "Freedom Under Siege" on Ebay. I originally bought this book used on Amazon and used it to scan in for the electronic version that is available on this site, here. The starting bid for the book is $100.
My purpose for doing this is to increase my cash contribution to the campaign. I will donate ALL proceeds from the sale (less Ebay transactions costs) to the campaign. I'll post a copy of my check online when the deal is done.
Who would be interested in this book?
Yesterday in DOCTOR NO, THE 3 MUSKETEERS & THE 7 DWARFS, Mary Starrett provided a detailed analysis of all of the leading Republican candidates plus potential candidates like Fred Thompson and Newt Gingrich.
Here is what she said about Dr. Paul:
"Ron Paul: The Congressman from Texas is quite simply, â€˜the best theyâ€™ve gotâ€™. The physician is the only candidate who has a 100% constitutionally-correct voting record. Because he votes against unconstitutional bills every time, he earned the label â€œDoctor No.' "
This is a new song by my friend the stranger
Don't need rose-colored glasses
With a brand new wide-screen TV
Coup d'etat now in syndication
Coup de grace for a pole marquee
Congressional shadows, marionette
Executives out of control
Silverware stolen, now its war eternal
And a gallon of gas for your soul
Lyres, Lawyers, psychos and thieves
Zombies just dance to the spin
Crowd is chanting, "Barabas! Barabas!"
Not that again

I am still fuming over George Stephanopoulosâ€™s comment at the end of an otherwise excellent interview. â€œThat's not going to happen,â€ he stated flatly to Ron Paul's assertion that he could win.
Excuse me, but who is it that anointed Mr. Stephanopoulosâ€™s as the arbiter of who can and cannot win the US Presidential election? Donâ€™t forget that â€œtheyâ€ said the same thing about his old boss, Bill Clinton back in 1991.
The days of the mainstream media (MSM) dictating to the American people who can and cannot be elected are over. John McCain was once an MSM darling, one of the mediaâ€™s anointed â€œBig Three,â€ but in the final end it didnâ€™t help him one bit. The people are smarter than that.
As Iâ€™ve said many times, more important than money, Ron Paul has the genuine support of the people who will ultimately cast the votes. That kind of support cannot be bought, and more importantly, it cannot be sold. Even if Rudy Romneyson go on to spend hundreds of millions of dollars advertising their muddled neo-con messages in the MSM, they're going to find it very difficult to compete with the simple, quiet message of liberty and freedom.
The MSM has got a problem on its hands:
I'm a total Ron Paul freak, so when I looked out the window this morning, I was thrilled to see support of my man RP in the form of three huge banners.
It's like a Christmas lights battle, now I've got to get my sign up too!
Thanks to our friend below for pointing out that this was the work of our friend Kevin out in NYC! Great work Kevin & gang!!!
