Most people never make the connection why prices are rising. This article from the AP doesn't. It describes how bad things are getting for people, but doesn't mention why paychecks can only be stretched half as long as before. Ron Paul makes the connection - it is the Federal Reserve, printing more and more money, making the money in your paycheck, your wallet, and your bank account worth less and less.

Workers are juggling ever-increasing housing, food and energy bills
By ANNE D'INNOCENZIO | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK -- The calculus of living paycheck to paycheck in America is getting harder. What used to last four days might last half that long now. Pay the gas bill, but skip breakfast. Eat less for lunch so the kids can have a healthy dinner.
Across the nation, Americans are increasingly unable to stretch their dollars to the next payday as they juggle higher rent, food and energy bills. It's starting to affect middle-income working families as well as the poor, and has reached the point of affecting day-to-day calculations of merchants like Wal-Mart Stores Inc., 7-Eleven Inc. and Family Dollar Stores Inc.

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul drew a crowd of 700 supporters at a rally at Clemson University earlier today. The rally hosted by the Clemson chapter of Students for Ron Paul was held from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Strom Thurmond Institute Building on the university’s campus.
Congressman Paul will hold another South Carolina campaign rally tonight in the capital, Columbia. Hundreds of Columbia-area supporters are expected to turn out to meet the rising GOP presidential contender at 7:00 pm in West Columbia, at 121 Alexander Street.
“Dr. Paul opened his Greenville campaign office yesterday to great support and fanfare,” said Paul campaign spokesman Jesse Benton. “With the success of the Clemson rally this afternoon, we know we’re heating up the competition in South Carolina.”
Ron Paul’s three-day South Carolina campaign tour started Thursday with stops in Greenville and Spartanburg leading into today’s events in Clemson and Columbia. The tour will conclude Saturday in Columbia. South Carolina’s Republican presidential primaries are scheduled for January 19, 2008.
If you reside in New York State and are a Registered Republican, then I urge you to apply to be a delegate at the convention in Minneapolis next September.
There is no better opportunity to ensure that Ron Paul carries our state than by being part of the New York Delegation.
Expenses are not provided - sorry! You have to pay your own way, and I imagine it could be costly. Still, if you have the funds, the desire and the ability, then please sign up. We only need 87 registered Republicans out of all those in New York State!
This is the book that Steve is talking about - A Nation of Sheep. Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity all endorse Judge Napolitano. And in the book, Judge Napolitano endorses Ron Paul.
This is the passage that Steve reads: "There is little we can do about this but warn our fellow Americans of Liberty lost. At this writing, sixteen politicians are competing nationally to replace President Bush. There are eight Democrats and eight Republicans. With the exception of Representative Ron Paul -- in terms of fidelity to the Constitution -- it does not matter which one of them wins. Except for Congressman Paul, they all love power for its own sake, believe that big government should redistribute wealth, regard the Constitution as a quaint obstacle, and would enforce or disregard laws as they saw fit. All this without regard to our history, our values, or our natural rights..." Get the book and pass the word.

He can reset a broken country
What Ron Paul has done, by entering the political arena, is to extend his scope of healing to our entire nation. If the United States was a patient, it would require intensive care. Our country needs to be healed from a variety of pre-existing conditions. And, if they are not reversed, then we all will suffer and our nation may perish.
Brandon from New Hampshire is with OperationNH.com and he emailed me to tell me about the new commercials he and his partners have created. The top one is to run in Iowa, and it is about a veteran (presumably from Texas) who loves Ron Paul. Simple and direct, emphasizing the veterant/military slant.
In the lower part of the page are two commercials-in-progress for New Hampshire. The real voice over is not on the first one, but the 2nd one is nearly complete.
It sometimes seems as if someone is playing a cruel practical joke on Ron Paul. He goes to a college and delivers the same speech he's given for the past 30 years of his political career, the one espousing the Austrian school of economics. Only now the audience is packed with hundreds...
Michael and this blog are mentioned in this Bloomberg piece although they didn't print the name correctly....
