I've spoken directly with Ron Paul PCC about the info I'm posting to make sure that it lines up with what the campaign is doing and they've given me the go-ahead to post this.
There is a new vanity toll-free number that rings directly into Ron Paul's Presidential Campaign Headquarters - 1-877-RON-PAUL. It is yet one more tool that we, the grassroots supporters of Ron Paul, can utilize in getting Ron Paul into the White House.
Nov. 7 - Reported by Avery Knapp
Ron Paul beat Rudy Giuliani (and all other candidates) in the first New York State Republican Straw Poll.
The debate and straw poll of New York Young Republicans happened on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at the Metropolitan Republican Club in New York City.
Here are the results:
Ron Paul - 26 votes
Rudy Giuliani - 21 votes
Mitt Romney - 6 votes
John McCain - 4 botes
Mike Huckabee - 2 votes
Duncan Hunter - 1 vote
Tom Tancredo - 0 votes
I think Ron stands a much better chance of beating Hillary than Rudy does. What Republican is going to vote for Hillary? And Ron will get the indies, libertarians, constitutionalists and disgruntled republicans along too....bingo! A winner. An amazing jump from an 'unknown' candidate to what would happen against Hillary!
It is what Dr. Paul has been saying all along. Here is the news from Bloomberg:
Nov. 7 (Bloomberg) -- The dollar slid to record lows against the euro and the Canadian dollar after a Chinese government adviser said plans to diversify foreign-exchange reserves will involve buying better-performing currencies.
The currency slumped to a 26-year low against the pound and a 23-year low against the Australian dollar. Cheng Siwei, vice chairman of China's National People's Congress, told a conference in Beijing the country ``will favor stronger currencies'' when adjusting its $1.43 trillion of reserves. He later added that doesn't mean buying more euros.
"We're likely to see further pressure on the dollar,'" said Thomas Harr, senior foreign exchange strategist in Singapore at Standard Chartered Plc, a U.K. bank that makes most of its profit in Asia. "The potential for diversification is quite big. This a structurally negative story for the dollar."
From Ron Paul | November 6, 2007
Amazing! I have to admit being floored by the $4.2 million dollars you raised yesterday for this campaign. And unlike the fatcat operations of the opposition, the average contribution from our 36,672 donors was $103.
I say "you raised," because this historic event was created, organized, and run by volunteers. This is the spirit that has protected American freedom in our past; this is the spirit that is doing so again.
Call to Action
Congressman Ron Paul, America’s best hope for the future.
I recently had the pleasure of personally handing the Honorable Ron Paul (the only member of Congress truly worthy of that title) a $2,300 check (the legal maximum) as my contribution toward his presidential campaign. I have never given one dime to a politician (though Congressman Paul is more of a statesman than a politician) in my life, and you know what; it felt great. It was the best $2,300 I ever spent. The purpose of this email is to urge every single one of my clients, every subscriber to my newsletter, and every one in my database, to make a similar contribution.
There are over 60,000 names in my database. If a significant percentage of us donate $2,300 to Ron Paul, he will have a decent shot at being the Republican nominee, and he is probably the only Republican candidate capable of wining the Presidency in 2008. Come election time, this country will likely be in a severe recession, and Ron Paul is the only Republican able to distance himself from President Bush, who will clearly be blamed for the mess our economy will be in.
This is an amazing, amazing interview - just the kind I like. Tucker gives Dr. Paul plenty of time and room just to talk. Wow. Thank you to 1sageee for uploading it.
Blitzer says they're going to try to get him into the Situation Room later this week! Great coverage - great job everyone - we're doing it!!!
A gushingly positive roundtable below with Jack Cafferty, John King, and Gloria (Somebody ?). Great coverage! Part II below:
I want to give credit for this excellent explanation about why Ron is not 'polling' higher, considering his ability to raise so much money, to my friend Liz Comeau, another tireless NH volunteer.
Why is Ron Paul so low in the polls?
1. Most pollsters are calling "likely Republican voters" which generally means "Republicans who voted in the last presidential election". Most of those Republicans voted for Bush, knowing full well what Bush is made of. Those people are now responding favorably to similar politicians like Giuliani, Romney and McCain, even Huckabee.
Amazingly, they are still asking him if we are spammers.
For so long, we have been ignored. We have been laughed at and ridiculed. For the most part, this has not stopped nor do I sense that it will stop soon. However, the people that stand behind my grandfather’s campaign have let it be known LOUD and CLEAR that we are not an army of invisible and mindless spammers. We are American citizens that believe it is time for change. Apparently, we also have quite a bit of that declining paper fiat money too!

Recently, Iowa pastors gathered to hear my presentation in Des Moines on behalf of Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul. After listening to me, they then heard ten-term Republican Texas Congressman Ron Paul himself.
A great ad from frankdog:
The official movie trailer for 'V for Vendetta.' You hear him say it towards the end: 'Ideas are bulletproof.' They cannot be killed, they can only die from neglect.
The movie is based on a graphic novel:
