"Last night," reports Lew Rockwell, "620 people jammed a small theater in Kansas City, cheering at almost every sentence on peace, freedom, and prosperity that came out of Ron Paul's mouth. Even the NY Times Magazine photographer and LA Times reporter along for the ride were impressed. For this was not a centrally organized event, but a local, spontaneous Meetup.com gathering. And this is just one of thousands of groups all over the country, mostly the young people who can make a revolution. The momentum is increasing. The climate of opinion is changing.
"On Technorati, which offers a real-time glimpse of the blogosphere, the most frequently searched term this week was "YouTube."
Then comes "Ron Paul."
The presence of the obscure Republican congressman from Texas on a list that includes terms such as "Sopranos," "Paris Hilton" and "iPhone" is a sign of the online buzz building around the long-shot Republican presidential hopeful -- even as mainstream political pundits have written him off."
Al Chrzan sends along the following: "This is my place of business and I'm an independent paralegal. I've plastered my office with Ron Paul stuff and I just thought it might provide others with ideas or courage to do similar."
Thanks Al! Nice to see that some of those posters I put together are being put to good use, too!
Ron Paul was one of Ronald Reagan's earliest supporters. So why on earth would he vote against awarding a Congressional Gold Medal to Ronald and Nancy Reagan? Read what Dr. Paul himself said and I think that whatever your political persuasion, you will agree with him.
The following is Dr. Paul's statement:
Kevin, who runs the excellent Ron Paul 2008 NYC Blog put the above video together on what he's doing to prepare for the rally today at the Colbert Report Studios. Great stuff Kevin! Take a look - if Kevin can do it, we all can do it!
The technology of the internet really does change the playing field

about Rudy and John not wanting to be in Iowa's 8/11 straw poll. Two months from now. What if Ron Paul had a strong showing? What will it take? If he gets strong support here, I think he will just build on the momentum. And there should be enough Iowans annoyed at the GrinOP to help. Any suggestions?
At the Utah State Republican Convention this past weekend, Ron Paul came in second place with 5.66%.Â Mitt Romney carried 81% in the Mormon state.
What is significant is that, unlike online polls, GOP convention straw polls are closely controlled.
According to Ivan Dubois of the Utah State GOP HQ, only registered elected delegates to the convention were able to vote.Â No "stacking" of votes can take place, since only elected party activists voted.
Ron Paul's speech at the Future Freedom Forum right before the last debate is up on UTUBES. It is a six-parter...a must listen.
