RonPaulProducts.com did the first mailing last week. And people are now getting them. I am getting tons of terrific emails and phone calls on the excitement of receiving their first Super Brochure mailing. The first mailing went very smoothly, and I extremely excited about what will happen over the next few weeks.
www.RonPaulProducts.com is planning on doing another mailing next week to Iowa. The Schultz Method of targeting Super Voters on the Precinct level makes it cost effective for anyone. And has the maximum effectiveness per dollar. The Super Brochure is amazing and will help put Ron Paul over the top in Iowa.
And for anyone who didn't get one, here is a very short 19 second video of what they look like:
It appears that he is going to be drafted by Americans Elect. I don't know if he can decline and refuse to run or not. I suppose he could. This organization is obtaining ballot access for some candidate to be selected by a secure online convention to be held in June. This is a big deal! This organization is basically forcing a third party run by someone and Ron Paul is the most tracked candidate. I just learned about this last night. So in other words, weather he wins the primary or not he will be on the ballot in November if the is chosen by that online convention, and he is the top choice by far now.
I started this thread not knowing who was behind this organization. It is CFR dominated! Something is up and it stinks. Those people are enemies to Ron Paul. They say they will have their online convention in June. We can deal with it then. Now lets concentrate on getting the republican nomination.
32-35 Ron Paul supporters attended a Black Friday sign wave in Anne Arundel County, MD (and 3 of the 32-35 were from Pennsylvania.) Keep the momentum going people!
Excellent job MD and PA!

Low turnout may help
About 119,000 turned out for the state's Republican caucus in 2008. Experts are predicting a smaller turnout in 2012.
"The smaller the turnout, the better the chances of a highly disciplined candidate like Ron Paul," Goldford said.
"The Iowa caucuses are all about identifying an intense group of supporters willing to go out on a cold January night, and Paul's people are usually willing to do that," said Cal Jillson, a political scientist at Southern Methodist University.
Iowa's conservative Christian voters also are motivated, and Paul's contrarian views on social issues and matters of church and state have made him an outlier with that bloc. A few days after last weekend's Thanksgiving Family Forum, Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Family Leader and an influential voice among Christian conservatives, announced that neither Paul nor Cain would receive the organization's endorsement.
Paul, who has announced he will not seek re-election to a House seat he's held since 1996 - as well as three terms in the 1970s and 1980s before temporarily retiring from politics - insists he is the true Republican in the race.
"Take a look at the Republican platform," he told the Des Moines Register editorial board last week. "They talk about personal liberty, a balanced budget, limited government, a strong national defense. They want free markets. I'm the best on all of those."
Ron Paul continues to win partisan Democratic voters
... and the paper spoke to people from the Blue Republican Facebook group for this piece.
So excited to see this...

CONCORD, N.H. - When presidential candidate Ron Paul looks for a Republican model of foreign policy, he looks to Robert Taft – the Ohio senator who opposed US intervention in World War II. He looks to Howard Buffett, a Nebraska representative who criticized the US role in the Korean War.
Ask him for a model in the party today, and Paul is vague. “We have a coalition in Washington,” Paul said yesterday. “It tends to be bipartisan.” Paul added that President George W. Bush’s advocacy of a “humble foreign policy” was promising, until Bush walked back on it.
Paul, a Texas representative, took a unique position on the stage last night, when the Republican presidential candidates met in a debate on national security and foreign policy sponsored by CNN, the Heritage Foundation, and the American Enterprise Institute. While most of the Republican candidates are open to military action against Iran, Paul advocates diplomacy. While several of the candidates oppose cutting the defense budget, Paul wants to slash it. Paul was one of the only candidates in the debate to oppose extending the Patriot Act. Yet while Paul’s non-interventionist philosophy puts him at odds with his Republican rivals, he believes voters agree with him.

Willard M. Romney, better known as Mitt, will lose Iowa because when Iowa Republicans meet on caucus night conservatives will tend to unite in each community behind the conservative candidate who can defeat Romney in that community.
Ron Paul can win Iowa because his supporters are very highly motivated and his campaign is very highly organized. He will outperform his rising poll numbers.
It is conceivable that Romney comes in third in Iowa.
I am predicting that Romney will lose Iowa. I am not predicting who will win Iowa, because that depends on which candidate conservatives ultimately unite behind on caucus night. Most likely it would be Newt Gingrich in an attempt by conservatives to make Gingrich the final alternative to Romney long term, or it could be Paul, or Michele Bachmann.
Paul is an interesting wild card in Iowa. He can win Iowa, and if for some reason Newt falls back, I suspect he will win. The media has always underestimated the premium of passion, conviction and organization in the Paul campaign. Paul's main competitor in Iowa is Newt. If Newt maintains his support, which is questionable, he has a good shot at Iowa, and if he does not, my bet is Paul.

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty, than those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson
From the day after the debate.
"Rep. Ron Paul returned to Anti-War Radio to discuss how American politicians have moved inexorably away from the republic and toward empire (witness the most recent Republican debate); how the Republican base – especially the youngest and oldest members – are developing a healthy skepticism of US foreign policy; and debunking the argument that the US can never “cut and run” because disaster will ensue."
Showdown at Neocon Central - Newt Gingrich vs. Ron Paul
by Justin Raimondo | Antiwar.com
November 25, 2011
The Republican "national security" debate sponsored by Neocon Central the American Enterprise Institute and the Heritage Foundation captured perfectly the intellectual and political bankruptcy of the Republican party when it comes to foreign policy. Here the party’s pandering demagoguery, reflexive ultra-nationalism, and visceral hostility to liberty was on full display in all its exhibitionistic belligerence. It was only natural, therefore, that the first question was asked by disgraced former US Attorney General Edwin Meese, who was forced to resign as Reagan’s AG as a result of his complicity in obtaining big defense contracts for a phony "minority"-owned company. Here is his "question":
"At least 42 terrorist attacks aimed at the United States have been thwarted since 9/11. Tools like the Patriot Act have been instrumental in finding and stopping terrorists. Shouldn’t we have a long range extension of the investigative powers contained in that act so that our law enforcement officers can have the tools that they need?"
What a set up for Newt Gingrich! And he certainly took advantage of it: naturally he was given the first answer –with poor Herman Cain having outlived his usefulness and been unceremoniously dumped, Newt is the "mainstream" media’s new darling.

"Gingrich went out of his way to get 50 members of Congress to endorse Dr. Paul's opponent in the Texas primary. Even former president George H.W. Bush campaigned for Dr. Paul's opponent AT Gingrich's request...Why would the supposed leader of the conservative movement work to keep one of the Constitution's most stalwart defenders away from Washington, D.C.?"

2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul was endorsed today by Cedar Rapids Tea Party founder Tim Pugh on the first day of the Congressman’s two-day visit to Iowa.
“Ron Paul has an unwavering stance in defense of the Constitution, a conviction to the cause of freedom and liberty, a firm belief in a balanced budget, and devotion to a strong free market economy and a sound monetary policy. He believes in a strong national defense, and not as the policeman of the world,” said Mr. Pugh.
“Ron Paul is the father of the modern-day tea party movement. As a small business owner, a true tea partier and conservative, and as the founder of the Cedar Rapids Tea Party I personally endorse Ron Paul for President of the United States,” said Mr. Pugh.
Wayne Paul, CPA and brother of Ron Paul, was interviewed on Joe Banister's Freedom Above Fortune Show last Saturday (November 19th).
Mostly about the IRS and Wayne Paul's dealings with them as a CPA
