"If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House," Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. "There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president."
http://RevolutionPAC.com | Northbrook, IL - Revolution PAC, the Super PAC formed in July to support the presidential ambitions of Congressman Ron Paul, has announced a money bomb fundraiser -- a "Super PAC Superbomb" -- for September 19.
"Among my least favorite clichés is that one about “speaking truth to power.” It’s easy to speak truth to powerful people. There aren’t many of them and they don’t care what you say.
"What really takes nerve is to speak truth to knuckleheads. There are tens of millions of them. And they get to vote.
"That is the charm of Ron Paul. I think I can say, without fear of contradiction, that no politician in recent history has irritated so many knuckleheads in so few words..." (Mulshine, http://blog.nj.com/njv_paul_mulshine/2011/09/reaction_to_ron...).
SFGate - Rep. Ron Paul Sparks Sensation at CA GOP Convention, Says Media Misreported Tea Party Cheering on Uninsured (VIDEO)Submitted by rp311 on Sat, 09/17/2011 - 19:46
Los Angeles — Presidential candidate Texas Rep. Ron Paul – followed by cheering crowds at the California State GOP convention today — said the media “twisted” the Tea Party reaction at the last presidential debate, and argued that the conservative position on health care is both Constitutionally sound and ”compassionate.”
We asked Paul after his speech to the Lincoln Club whether health care or welfare are appropriate expenditures of the federal government. “Follow the Constititution,” he said repeatedly.
I know I'm gonna to get a lot of emails for this, but Mitt Romney and Rick Perry should run as third party candidates.
Presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Rick Perry have really no chance at being president. Both candidates have extreme views not typically held by conservative voters. They both endorse socialized medicine, welfare, and federal mandates. Although they have a strong media following, it may not be enough to reach a mainstream conservative audience.
A Ron Paul party!
This looks awesome! I wish I could be there. It looks like he's speaking at LSU earlier in the day, too. (AND Walter Block and Mike Church are going to speak after him at the party.)
Come help support Ron Paul! We will be visiting the Ron Paul 2012 campaign headquarters in Baton Rouge for a day of manning the phones to promote the Grand Opening Party! As you know, the media has already kicked the propaganda machine into high gear and are now waging a silent war against the Good Doctor. It’s time for us all to put the peddle to the metal and show them what real grassroots support looks like!
"In the Republican presidential candidates debate Monday night in Tampa, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer posed a hypothetical question. Normally, a hypothetical question should not be answered, but in this case it revealed something about the questioner and sparked a controversial, but necessary answer from Rep. Ron Paul."
Voters see little chance of a third-party candidate being elected president next year, but most think one has a shot at the White House a little further down the road.
I'm sorry if I'm posting a question that has been asked already but if it has I haven't been able to find it. I'm pretty new to politics in general so I'm sorry if this question is redundant. My question is: Why doesn't the tea party support Ron Paul for the presidency in 2012? This quote comes off the official Tea Party website.
Hi all! I've never voted before because I felt I'd be voting for "the lesser evil", until i discovered Ron Paul. I desperately want to vote for him and get others to as well. What do I register as to vote for him? I assumed republican but I've heard people call him libertarian so I just want to make sure I do everything right! If I don't get to vote for this man, I'll regret it forever!
Ignoring the facts, establishment media smears Congressman as “defending Al-Qaeda”
The establishment media is once again attempting to smear Ron Paul as anti-American following Paul’s simple observation during the debate last night that foreign occupations increase the risk of terrorist attacks, when in reality the Texan Congressman’s views are endorsed by US military personnel more than any other Republican candidate.
this includes intros, rebuttals, etc.
Message to Ron Paul Campaign: How to win the Warmonger Neocons, especially after the CNN/Teaparty Debate!Submitted by JTTC on Tue, 09/13/2011 - 02:05
Ok if you want to win their votes WHILE maintaining your integrity (which is a given, naturally) you need to STOP saying 9/11 was a result of US foreign policy or that we invited 9/11 upon us. I know we did, trust me, but hang in for a second.
INSTEAD, you need to ride the anti-Washington wave and start emphasizing it is the result of Washington D.C. using our military unconstitutionally which aided to out of control spending. As you once said, "We get out marching orders from the constitution." And what's more, we have to borrow from China to do it! This will make them think twice.
