Design, branding, and presentation are incredibly important. That's why I spent the last couple months preparing a Branding identity for the 2012 campaign.

Ron Paul: A Lesser Evil?
by Charles Davis / April 28th, 2011
Ron Paul is far from perfect, but I’ll say this much for the Texas congressman: He has never authorized a drone strike in Pakistan. He has never authorized the killing of dozens of women and children in Yemen. He hasn’t protected torturers from prosecution and he hasn’t overseen the torturous treatment of a 23-year-old young man for the “crime” of revealing the government’s criminal behavior.
Can the same be said for Barack Obama?
Yet, ask a good movement liberal or progressive about the two and you’ll quickly be informed that, yeah, Ron Paul’s good on the war stuff — yawn — but otherwise he’s a no-good right-wing reactionary of the worst order, a guy who’d kick your Aunt Beth off Medicare and force her to turn tricks for blood-pressure meds. By contrast, Obama, war crimes and all, provokes no such visceral distaste. He’s more cosmopolitan, after all — less Texas-y. He’s a Democrat. And gosh, even if he’s made a few mistakes, he means well.
Sure he’s a murderer, in other words, but at least he’s not a Republican!
The rest here:
This is something most of us know, but I still tend to forget when things seem to go wrong (marginalizing Dr. Paul, fixing polls, media fixing, etc.).
However, I am going to make it a point to ALWAYS remember, and I encourage all of you to do it as well! This campaign for the Presidency is ALREADY WON!
I learned in the '08 cycle that the real objective is to enlighten and educate the PEOPLE, not to just occupy one office (the Presidency). In order for the things we need to come true, and the restoration of our Republic to be maintained, it will require an enlightenment and understanding by our population in general.
So, with Ron's presidential run imminent, all we need to keep us going is the truth and reality that as long as this movement is active, it is WINNING!
Even when Ron Paul is President, the awareness has to continue to grow! That way Liberty will win no matter what! We can be thankful we have Dr. Paul to motivate us, teach us, and be a leader for us. And, this is not about who "wins" on election day! It is far more likely this time, which makes the effort all the more worthwhile!
Remember, we win as long as we care and participate! It's that simple!
Good luck to everyone!
Ron Paul's full speech at Webster Hall.

"Most Respected, Least Expected" was the caption on a recent YouTube video discussing the 2012 presidential prospects of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Surfside — and that might be true.
Paul has been writing the right prescription for U.S. policy, both foreign and domestic, for nearly 40 years. But we’ve failed to take his advice, so today we find ourselves in the midst of exactly what he has been warning us about for decades: a prolonged recession with rising gas and food prices, unsustainable national debt and an unstable monetary system causing unrest and uncertainty in many of the world’s economies. He has been consistent in his admonition to Congress that failure to rein in debt and spending and adhere to strictly limited constitutional authority would drive the country into bankruptcy. He’s had the wisdom to see the unintended consequences of flawed policy, and while the media has written him off as a fringe figure, we are now living with the consequences he predicted. Once jester, now prophet.
Fast forward to 3:30 for Ron Paul:
Congressman Paul calls in to discuss the Fed's historic press conference and other news of the day.
This demonstrates the strength of support for the ideas and message of liberty in our modern day.

"Chairman Bernanke's press conference today was unprecedented, and it demonstrates that Federal Reserve officials are very concerned about growing public criticism of Fed policies. Although Mr. Bernanke predictably provided no substantive information, the American people want real answers about Fed bailouts, lending to foreign banks, and most of all inflation. Mr. Bernanke continues to ignore his culpability for the inflation all Americans suffer due to the Fed's relentless monetary expansion. Rising prices are the direct result of Fed devaluation of our dollar. Yet rather than addressing the Fed's loose dollar policy, Mr. Bernanke continues to assure us that inflation is not a problem.
Without the Federal Reserve's relentless expansion of credit throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, there could have been no excessive borrowing or explosion of subprime lending. Through easy credit, the Fed initiated the economic boom that created the dot-com bubble. When that bubble burst the Fed pumped additional liquidity into the system, which led to a new boom that created the housing bubble. Commodity prices have risen rapidly, producer prices have followed suit and consumers are already seeing the beginning of massive price increases passed on to them. And now the Fed's additional trillions of dollars in monetary pumping is creating yet another bubble. This is the exact opposite of stability in the marketplace and has nothing to do with free markets. It is central economic planning at its worst. And the end result may be hyperinflation and the destruction of our currency.
Now Americans are waking up to the dangers of the Fed's inflationary monetary policy, and they want it to stop. Today's staged press conference will not be enough to stop the growing demand for real Fed transparency, and I hope to build on that grassroots demand by passing legislation that will result in a true audit of the Fed's activities.
Support from my colleagues was vital in the last Congress in making progress towards Fed transparency, and I hope to build on that support in this Congress. It is well past time that we begin to rein in the Fed." - Congressman Ron Paul
Thanks to SCButterfly!
I believe it is time to sharpen the message, and go forth and multiply.
(RP supporters that is)
EDIT: Here I am writing about "sharpening the message", and my own message was not that sharp......8)
I know that Ron Paul, or the principles of Liberty cannot be "sold" to someone in one paragraph. For some people it takes a long period of study. I know that I am still learning myself.
Thanks ACinMA for the video
(MarketWatch) The Federal Open Market Committee will announce its rate decision at 12:30 p.m. Eastern time today instead of the usual 2:15 p.m. Sources say the Fed is likely to stay with its target federal funds rate of between 0% and 0.25% and its goal of buying $600 billion in Treasury securities by the end of June.
At 2:15, The FOMC will release its quarterly growth and inflation estimate, instead of unveiling it three weeks after the rate decision. Then there will be a first-ever-for-the-Fed press conference. After a brief introductory statement, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke will answer reporters’ questions for roughly 45 minutes.

The press conference will be carried live on television, and on the web at CSPAN.org
