Jay said, "They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it's worked for over 200 years, and [heck], we're not using it anymore."
This actually gave me tears....
"none of the campaigns or supporters seem to love their guy like the folks pulling for Paul. A young girl stood up before the whole crowd prior to the congressman's speech and read a report she wrote for her grade school class on her hero, Ron Paul. Her message: I believe in Ron Paul because he believes in me. Powerful stuff."
I'll be on Fox News with Megyn Kelly at 2PM today.
I've got a few more meet-ups scheduled in Iowa to sync up the grassroots supporters with the official campaign. The effort is to find precinct leaders to speak on behalf of Ron Paul at the local caucuses and to organize phone banking for voter identification (and then door-to-door resource spreading...i.e. lawn signs).
Des Moines Oct. 6th: http://www.meetup.com/PCI-CFL/events/35601982/
Ames Oct. 13th: http://www.meetup.com/Ron-Paul-2012-Ames/events/35954712/
Ames Oct. 18th: http://www.meetup.com/Ron-Paul-2012-Ames/events/35969762/
Go on facebook and tell your friends in Iowa, that if they haven't gone to a meet-up yet they should attend one of these. We can give them direction for the next 3 months on how to best help out the campaign.
My efforts in Iowa will be recorded in my next entry of "The Ron Paul Road Warrior": http://freeindependentsun.com/republic/the-tour-to-end-the-w...

Hi, new member here! I just wanted to share this video of a passionate, intelligent Ron Paul supporter telling people the real root of the country's problem, he deserves applause and just one of us in the field is great, but for anyone having doubts about Occupy Wall Street's intentions need to look no further than this passionate soldier spreading the good Doctor's words:
Dear Occupiers, Progressives, Libertarians, etc.,
Greetings and Salutations. I've been reading about your exploits this week in the news. Protests are spreading around the nation, and though largely symbolic right now it must striking a nerve :) (though you wouldn't know it by the lack of media coverage).
But that's about par for the course, isn't it? The Status Quo doesn't want to listen; isn't that part of what this is about?
I admire your efforts to get out and be heard. More over, I encourage you stay out there as long as it takes to be heard.
In that regard, I hope the weather is cooperative and kind to you, because lord knows, the police won't be.
And it is for this reason that I wanted to write to you.
The Occupy! website suggests that this movement seeks to imitate the "Arab Spring".
I'm concerned when I read that friend, because, well, if we're going "Arab Spring" on this, that means we're talking revolution here.
If that's truly the notion, you're gonna need some help.
You see, the crucial strategy that made the "Arab Spring" so successful (for the Egyptians anyway) was non-violence.
Occupy! may not know entirely where it's headed yet, but a few things are clear. First, the longer it continues the more likely the top 1% will use violence to end it. Now is the time to ramp up non-violent rhetoric. Take every opportunity to emphasize the non-violent nature of your presence.
[MarketWatch] - Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke will appear before the Joint Economic Committee on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Eastern to discuss “the economic outlook.” He’ll face questions from across the political spectrum, from the only elected socialist, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, to tea-party favorite Jim DeMint, the Republican senator from South Carolina.
Rather than try to predict what will be asked, here’s MarketWatch’s stab at what could be timely questions for the central bank chief...

This poll is a breath of fresh air in my opinion. We've had a string of bad ones recently. This one puts us back within striking distance of the top tier.
An open letter and warning from a former tea party movement adherent to the Occupy Wall Street movementSubmitted by rex84 on Tue, 10/04/2011 - 07:44
I didn't write this letter but it's well worth the read, as well as are the responses below it:
I don't expect you to believe me. I want you to read this, take it with a grain of salt, and do the research yourself. You may not believe me, but I want your movement to succeed. From a former tea partier to you, young new rebels, there's some advice to prevent what happened to our now broken movement from happening to you. I don't agree with everything your movement does, but I sympathize with your cause and agree on our common enemy. You guys are very intelligent and I trust that you will take this in the spirit it is intended.
I wish I could believe this Occupy Wall Street was still about (r)Evolution, but so far, all I am seeing is a painful rehash of how the government turned the pre-Presidential election tea party movement into the joke it is now. We were anarchists and ultra-libertarians, but above all we were peaceful. So, the media tried painting us as racists. But when that didn't work they tried to goad us into violence. When that failed, they killed our movement with money and false kindness from the theocratic arm of the Republican party. That killed our popular support.

Radio host, filmmaker, and the host of Infowars Nightly News Alex Jones is calling for an Occupy Federal Reserve protest this Friday. Alex will personally be at protesting in Dallas as supporters for liberty and sound currency will be at all 12 branches of the Federal Reserve and its headquarters in Washington DC (even though the NY Fed is basically ground zero).
Protests must be peaceful and law abiding. Take video cameras to record everything including the presence and actions of the police. Upload the videos to youtube and spread them to your family and friends. If we can get media attention to this like the Wall Street protests then it will be a great leap against the Federal Reserve
Today I went into Boston for my guitar lesson after my classes, and not very far from it was the #OCCUPYBOSTON protests. I decided that as a politically active college student it would be worth my time to check it out. I had seen mixed views about the movement here, and whether or not it would be open to Ron Paul, and let me tell you this: Anyone here who doesn't think these people will stand with us, or that we shouldn't stand with them is wrong.
I wore a "Ron Paul is my Homeboy" shirt, and I got many compliments on it, thumbs up and the like. In fact I saw more Ron Paul supporters today than I have in my entire life, and everyone there, be they left right, libertarian or socialist all were uniting against the evils of the Federal Reserve and corporatism.
They are still developing what their goals are, and it seems really unclear at this point, but I can tell you it is safe to say that from my experiences these people have a lot in common with us, and are fighting the same fight. I feel we should unite with these people, and help them, because they're fighting the very same fight we're all fighting here.
On a side note if further motivation to help the cause of liberty is not enough - I met another college student - an avid Ron Paul supporter who also was about asking people questions and conversing with them who was arguably one of the prettiest girls I've seen.
I welcome any questions.
I gave the dailypaul a few shout outs in a few interviews people had with me. Hopefully some more people find out about Ron Paul, and the liberty movement because of this.
