On tonight's McLaughlin Group, panelist Eleanor Clift brought up Ron Paul favorably.
During a discussion on the conservative movement, started as a discussion of the death of Jerry Falwell, Clift named Ron Paul as Barry Goldwater's heir:
Barry Goldwater's heir in the current Republican field is Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who is a libertarian, and who is really striking a chord. He's not going to win the nomination or the Presidency, but he is speaking to a lot of people who think the Republican Party has gone way too far into the bedrooms of American people, and too far...
Come on Rush, you know you want to endorse him. You must be tired of the big spending mushy liberals (no, !'m a moderate!) you have to grudgingly defend. If you want someone you can be support without compromise, simply endorse someone who has never compromised.
Remembering back to the FIRST debate at the Ronald Reagan Library, who is the most Reagan like? Someone with the same first name. Who believes in America first. Who believes in smaller government and less taxes.
I got an email through dailypaul.com and the writer referred to our family potentially as â€œThe First Family.â€ The writer also said they wanted to know more about us and our extended family. I thought I would provide a little information about us. It is wild that people care to know about us, and it is certainly exciting.
1. Where's the mass of cyber-puffer-fish for Tancredo, Thompson, Hunter, whomever. Paul is well on the radar like a thunderhead.
2. Where it will matter will be in Iowa, Arizona, and New Hampshire. The Bushbots will show up at the polls and caucuses, but they are visible and part of the party machine. Paul's supporters are grass-roots. They haven't figured out they are fighting an insurgency. A distributed system. Something hard to count. There's plenty of time to get organized to do a surprise in the early races.
Bill Maher has called and offered Ron Paul another spot on the show. This came after Maher announced that Paul was his new hero.
He has asked that my grandfather fly to California to appear on the show live from the studio !!!
Ron Paul will be on C-SPAN from the House Floor around 8pm Central. He will be on for nearly 1 hour....
Tune in....I just got the call from my grandmother Carol Paul with the news.
Edit - The House of Representatives called the office and said it might be earlier so it might be around 7:45 Central.
I have just compiled a list of 'teaching' videos, that is, videos you can use for people who say, 'Who is Ron Paul and what does he stand for' or, 'Is Ron healthy enough' or 'What is Ron's voting record' etc. There is something here for all the issues just about, to let Democrats, Republicans, and Independents see for themselves. Just copy this list of videos. I did all the work so you don't have to.
First, Ron on the debates:
FOX and MSNBC polls ARE correct truer random samplings of the people:
In this pre-debate video, Cavuto was almost expecting to pigeonhole Ron with the whining liberals who are always complaining about the Bush 'tax cuts for the rich'.
When Cavuto asks him if he would rescind those tax cuts, here Ron tells him what he would do. He says if Ron expresses his views in the debates, he will create fireworks...
Let's hope Ron will be allowed to talk about his voting record with regard to tax cuts on June 5th.
