The only political party I have ever been a member is the Libertarian Party, which I joined in 1976, under the influence of NORML ads in my father's Playboy magazines. I began in 1992, and have remained until today, a "Decline To State Party" registered California voter. If you look at my profile, you will see I have been registered here on the wonderful Daily Paul for over four years, so you might wonder WHY NOW? Why would I join the CA GOP now?
I joined the CA GOP because I want Ron to be my president. I also know, having supported Nader's right be on a ballot for four elections, that the several state courts have ruled "an Independent candidate does NOT have any right to be on thier ballot", so I have NO hope for any Independent Candidate, no matter how perfect they represent me. I don't agree with Ron on everything, that is true about me in my support for him to be MY president, but the big picture has Ron Paul representing me more than any candidate iun any party.
Finally, I intend to be active in my local CA GOP and STAND for Ron Paul every opportunity I can. That is why I joined the CA GOP today.
God Bless America, God Bless Ron Paul, God Bless Daily Paul, and PEACE BE WITH ALL OF YOU! GO RON GO
John Dennis explains the latest, most cost-effective effort to identify Ron Paul supporters using robopolls in Iowa.
For every $50, we should be able to identify at least 10 Ron Paul supporters!
If we raise $10,000 to $25,000 we should be able to identify 5,000 Ron Paul supporters!
We need to fund this project today!
If you'd ever like to have a close up look at the TSA's activities, I strongly recommend New York's JFK Airport, Terminal 1.
I was there yesterday and, while passing time, sauntered up to the mezzanine where one may find the food court. The interesting thing is, the food court has an enormous hole in the middle of the floor, ringed by tables and chairs, and this looks down on security and the gate access area.
So, we got some McDonald's for lunch and sat just above where the "TSA molestion stations" were positioned.
For the next hour or so, I bore witness to the methods and activities of our "heroes in blue" as they systematically violated the civil rights of dozens of innocent people -- none of whom ever deigned to look upward and notice scads of customers chewing on fries and burgers while observing them being molested.
Just as shocking videos posted here show, I witnessed two cases of elderly women in wheelchairs being groped. One was made to stand, wobbly as can be, while gloved hands circled both breasts. Another was too immobile to stand, but she was made to lean forward and back, and side to side, so hands could slip beneath each buttock.

Marshalltown, Ia. — Raising the debt ceiling would only weaken the nation’s economy, Ron Paul said during a campaign stop here on Wednesday.
Republicans and Democrats were scheduled to meet today during a White House summit devoted to the issue, but the Texas congressman has spent the last week touting his own solution to the government’s money woes: Forgive the debt the U.S. Treasury owes the Federal Reserve and chop $1.7 trillion from the nation’s sizable $14.4 trillion debt.
“It’s not the ultimate reform that’s needed, but it’s a start,” Paul told The Des Moines Register. “What we have is a situation where we essentially have a debt to ourselves. It doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it is counted in our deficit.”
Paul said Wednesday he had received little response from his peers in Congress about the idea, and economists are split on the proposal.
Ron Paul, the conservative congressman from Texas, beat the entire field of GOP presidential contenders in a poll conducted recently among "882 highly active Republican voters in Texas."
Answering the simple question, "If the Texas Republican primary were held today, which presidential candidate would you be most likely to vote for?" 22% of those polled selected the 75-year-old affectionately known as Dr. No.
Gov. Rick Perry came in second with 17%, followed by deep dish pizza lover Herman Cain (14%), with Newt Gingrich placing fourth at 11%.
Texans don't seem to care much for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney or Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, who got 8% and 7% respectively.

Today's feature story is about how the U.S. government just got caught red handed putting 30,000+ guns into the hands of Mexican drug gangs.
What does this have to do with health or freedom? Because once you see how the government really operates -- to cause more problems so it can claim there's a "crisis" -- then you have a better idea of how the FDA operates to enact new food safety restrictions (or how the CDC promotes infectious disease to push more vaccines).
It's a stunning (but true) realization: Our own government is actively plotting against peace, freedom and law & order in order to achieve its own nefarious aims of controlling more and more of the entire economy (and your private lives).

I'm having difficulty seeing how a Democrat who voted for Obama (whom I supported) for the right reasons in 2008 can in good conscience do so again given that there is another candidate who has been consistent in his opposition to all of these things -- not just in words but in deeds.
If you've read my other pieces, you already know who he is. But if not, you should also know that Ron Paul has voted to let states make their own laws on abortion, gay marriage etc. and to let individuals follow their own social conscience -- even when he disagrees with them (as I disagree with him on some of these issues). In other words, he is consistent in his beliefs in civil liberty.
If you are a Democrat, and you sit tight and vote Democrat again "because you've always been a Democrat" or because you think that some group with which you identity will benefit more from Democrat programs than a Republican one, then that is up to you, and I wish you well. But don't you dare pretend that you are motivated primarily by peace, civil rights or a government that treats people equally.
That Ron Paul, who has been standing up for these principles quietly for half a lifetime, happens to be a member of the Republican party is a lot less important than the principles that we should be voting on.

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has been endorsed by New Hampshire state Representative Paul Mirski – one of a growing number of legislators who are supporting the libertarian-leaning Texas congressman.
Mirski is a six-term representative who co-founded the House Republican Alliance, a conservative group that promotes small government and individual freedom.
After conservative Republicans took over the New Hampshire House in the 2010 elections, Mirski ran unsuccessfully for the position of majority leader. He chairs the House Legislative Administration Committee and the Special Committee on Redistricting.
In a statement, Mirski praised Paul as the “only candidate who consistently fights for small government principles,” and echoed Paul’s views that the economic crisis was caused by government intervention in the market place.
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul said Wednesday he’s the only member of a crowded field that is tackling head-on status quo policies, such as ending several overseas military engagements and reforming the monetary system.
In his first visit to Black Hawk County this election cycle, Paul, a 75-year-old Congressman from Texas, focused his message on what he called the strong defense of personal liberty. Among the tenets of that message were opposition to current government economic policies, ending foreign military conflicts and a dramatic overhaul of the country’s monetary system. He said those were issues no other candidate stressed.
“I think all the other candidates don’t fall into one category, except that I put them all in one category,” he said. “They all support the status quo in many ways.”
Paul spoke to a crowd of around 200 people at the Pipac Centre on the Lake in Cedar Falls. Paul is investing a lot of money and attention this year in Iowa in hopes of winning both the Aug. 13 Iowa Straw Poll in Ames and precinct caucuses later this year.
