My father just called and told me a story and informed me that I would be thrilled by it. He was right :)
He said he was listening to talk radio in Orlando, FL. He couldn't remember which program. He thought it may have been Rush. He said that they were discussing delegates and that a man called in and said that he had a friend that was a delegate. When they were choosing delegates the people there said, "You're voting for McCain, right?" the man said, "yes, that's right." But what he didn't tell him was that there was an underground movement to break camp and vote for Ron Paul.
Thanks to Charlie Z.
I had high hopes when I read this just out news. I had hoped he would resign and join the Ron Paul Revolution. However, he has resigned to head the Peterson Foundation. Upon reading this I still had high hopes. Then I read that Peter G. Peterson (81) had endorsed McCain and that he is a past Chairman of the CFR.
I am so disappointed in David Walker.

I rise to speak on the concept of competing currencies. Currency, or money, is what allows civilization to flourish. In the absence of money, barter is the name of the game; if the farmer needs shoes, he must trade his eggs and milk to the cobbler and hope that the cobbler needs eggs and milk. Money makes the transaction process far easier. Rather than having to search for someone with reciprocal wants, the farmer can exchange his milk and eggs for an agreed-upon medium of exchange with which he can then purchase shoes.
This medium of exchange should satisfy certain properties: it should be durable, that is to say, it does not wear out easily; it should be portable, that is, easily carried; it should be divisible into units usable for every-day transactions; it should be recognizable and uniform, so that one unit of money has the same properties as every other unit; it should be scarce, in the economic sense, so that the extant supply does not satisfy the wants of everyone demanding it; it should be stable, so that the value of its purchasing power does not fluctuate wildly; and it should be reproducible, so that enough units of money can be created to satisfy the needs of exchange.
Over millennia of human history, gold and silver have been the two metals that have most often satisfied these conditions, survived the market process, and gained the trust of billions of people. Gold and silver are difficult to counterfeit, a property which ensures they will always be accepted in commerce. It is precisely for this reason that gold and silver are anathema to governments. A supply of gold and silver that is limited in supply by nature cannot be inflated, and thus serves as a check on the growth of government. Without the ability to inflate the currency, governments find themselves constrained in their actions, unable to carry on wars of aggression or to appease their overtaxed citizens with bread and circuses.
Ron Paul 2008 has formed its March Exploratory Committee and is giving careful thought to the best date, specific format, and other details of the upcoming Ron Paul freedom march. We’ve also set up a new e-mail address for the committee, so supporters can send their ideas, suggestions, questions, etc. Please remember that the committee has a lot of information to sift through even before suggestions start pouring in, so be patient. This will be a great event, and it requires careful planning.
This is for those of you who still don't think the CFR/Trilats/Bilderbergers have NOT dominated the State Dept for the last 40 years.
Larry McDonald was subsequently killed along with 268 others by the Russian Communists in 1983 while flying on KAL-007 from Alaska to South Korea to give a South Korean anniversary Freedom Speech similar to the Boston Tea Party rally of 2007!
ADDENDUM: I am adding this because of some of the comments below.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney plans to announce Thursday that he is backing Sen. John McCain in his bid for the Oval Office, two sources familiar with the decision said.
The former Massachusetts governor earlier this month suspended his campaign, saying it was in his party's best interest.
Continuing his campaign for the White House would "forestall the launch of a national campaign and be making it easier for Senator [Hillary] Clinton or [Barack] Obama to win."
The passing age, of the TV, is upon us, but,
On the net mainstream, we hear,
The strong cries of, corruption and lies, as,
Our precious freedom, and rights disappear
ID cards, VeriChips in your skin,
Politician pons, pull the reins,
Winning the convention for Ron Paul will take getting as many Paul delgates there as possible AND convincing those delegates who might support McCain to vote otherwise.
Many traditional Republicans who will not accept McCain as the nominee. This group is organizing to 'dump McCain':
Organized by the Granny Warriors
Tom at www.ronpaulstickers.com has 3,500 Ron Paul signs he will sell for the $4,000 which INCLUDES SHIPPING. He wants to flood the entire state of Texas with signs to show everyone how much Ron is loved in his own state. This is a wonderful idea, especially with that Chris Peeden running such awful ads about Ron, total lies and slander yet it is getting around. We need to show everyone that our dedication to Ron has not slacked off. Tom is great for getting these signs out at this price... write him for smaller quantities. I am sure he will be glad to make adjustments... but for now some of you groups get together and buy the whole bunch.

The Ron Paul Revolution can be a powerful coalition to promote freedom, peace and prosperity. We are hundreds of thousands strong and growing. Together we can move mountains. The question is, what mountains should we focus our efforts on for maximum effect?
We can start by booting out those in Washington who refuse to take their oath of office seriously and replace them with constitutionally-minded Congressmen and Senators. Ron Paul supporters should band together to support all candidates who will work on our behalf to reduce the size and power of government, and restore our republic.
There would be no better candidate to help further our cause in Washington than Dr. Jim Forsythe. Jim's military and life experiences, his love of country, and his business background makes him highly qualified to hold the office of US Congressman.
I am posting this here because I am very disturbed to read comments on blogs and hear people calling C-SPAN claiming that if RP does not get the nomination, they will vote for Obama in the general. Please, get a clue!
For those of you who are still so naive to think that Obama is a viable alternative in the general election, YOU'D BETTER THINK AGAIN. This article proves that he's merely a tool for the world government and promoter of a tax to be paid to the UN to fuel its control over us and to redistribute the wealth to other countries. SPREAD THIS EVERYWHERE!
