The primary is on August 10.
The New Haven Register actually ran one of the best written and video interviews of Peter Schiff that I have seen so far in the campaign....This is the perfect way to let Registered Republicans really understand what his positions and beliefs are in a concise and extremely well done video interview....kind of suprised me that the Register actually did this....hats off to them!
Anyway get this link spread around to anyone who has every said "I don't know much about him.... "
Go view the interview yourself and then "Share" it on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Please do spread the word!
Make Schiff happen!

Subject: Re: Ed Thompson for Wisconsin State Senate
Mr. Thompson has Dr. Paul's endorsement. You are welcome to report that in any annoucement you see fit. That is all we do of non-Federal candidates.
["Gene" is Gene Cisewski, a campaign manager for the Ed Thompson campaign. I have confirmed this email with Gene and Ed Thompson.]
Ed Thompson is one of the top pro-liberty candidates in the United States! Ed has twice been elected mayor of Tomah, Wisconsin, both times winning in landslides (2000 & 2008). Ed was also elected to the Tomah City Council in 2005 even though he wasn't running for the office. That's amazing! People wrote Ed in anyway and he got over 90% of the vote! Most famously, Ed raised over $500,000 in 2002 as a third party (Libertarian) candidate for governor of Wisconsin and got over 10% of the vote! That's impressive! And post-election polls showed Ed was more popular than democrat Jim Doyle (who won the election), but people didn't vote for Ed because they didn't think a third party candidate could win. Ed's campaign manager from 2002 now works as a legislative staffer for Ron Paul in Washington.
Now Ed is running for State Senate as a Ron Paul Republican! Ron Paul endorsed Ed Thompson even though the Campaign for Liberty does not normally endorse state candidates. Ed can win. Ed out fund-raised his big-government opponent this year by 2 to 1 and rumor has it, Ed leads in the polls. But big time democrat money is flowing into the district. Ed is bracing for a multi-thousands-of-dollars deluge of bogus, negative ads; so Ed needs YOUR help!
Ed's website is here: http://edthompson.com/
I'm a friend of Ed's from Wisconsin. Ed is an awesome dude and his favorite president is Andrew Jackson. Ed sticks up for state's rights & powers. Ed defends gun rights. Ed is frugal. Ed's uncontested primary is in September and the real deal is in November. Ed faces a vulnerable one-term incumbent. Now is the time to strike while the iron is hot. Ed Thompson rocks! Google Ed Thompson! Please support Ed Thompson now!

The Judge announced today "Freedom Week" will run every night next week M-F 9pm EST on Fox Business. Get you DVRs set up today and ensure those rating keep climbing - just can't keep a good program down. Congrats Judge!
Now if we could just get Shelly Roche back instead of that liberal blond he's had on lately we'd be set.
UPDATED WITH LINKS:
In this graceless age where Bill O'Riley has shown that rudeness without rationale can boost ratings, many self-promoters like Beck and Matthews now place ratings over truth at every turn.
Rudeness is defined as: Ill-mannered; discourteous; lacking education or knowledge. While this has become an accepted norm by many, I find it repulsive. However, more than repulsive, rudeness can be destructive when used to deny sincere discourse that seeks to define the problems and as well as the solutions. From his ever growing esteem and wisdom, there's a reason Dr. Paul refrains from being rude as he once again sets the example, by both his words and his deeds!
When I see this tactic taking hold on the DP, along with the mindless name calling that is now in vogue, I am compelled to remind - "Just because you're rude, doesn't mean you're right"!
Sometimes, the political process makes us all just a bit cynical and jaded -- my self included. We look at what the Washington DC establishment -- the career politicians, the corporate lobbyists, and the entrenched bureaucracy has brought us, and we throw up our hands, thinking, they're all the same.
I don't like to yell too loud, or beat my chest. But I want to take a moment to remind you why I am not your typical politician, and why this is not a typical campaign or movement.
"But I want to take a moment to remind you why I am not your typical politician, and why this is not a typical campaign or movement.
Among the many reasons:
- I will never, ever vote for a taxpayer bailout of a private industry. Whether it's big banks, automakers, or any other industry -- you succeed or fail on your own.
- I will not vote for an unbalanced budget. I will not vote for a tax increase. Ever.
- I will fight for new rules like a Balanced Budget Amendment and Term Limits.
- I will not take ANYTHING off the table in the fight to balance the budget. Anyone who says something like they will "freeze non-defense discretionary spending" is blowing smoke at you and hoping you won't notice. That would balance the budget -- MAYBE -- in about 80 years.
- We have to keep our promises to seniors and keep our country strong, but every area has things that can be cut. Every agency has things that are duplicative or that could be done better or cheaper.
- I will propose and force a vote on an Enumerated Powers Act, to force Congress to point to the part of the Constitution that justifies their bills.
- I will fight for the Bill of Rights. Democrats often love the 4th amendment. Republicans the 2nd. I will fight for them all, which means fighting for your free speech, gun rights, and civil liberties. Laws that infringe on ANY of these make the federal government more powerful, and we cannot continue to allow that.
- I will not allow our troops to be the world's policeman, and I will force a vote on a Declaration of War if any President seeks to commit our military to battle.
What you've just read above is an agenda unlike any politician in the country. While solidly conservative, it also shows first, a great loyalty to the Constitution and to our freedom. You cannot fight for liberty while voting for bills that embolden the state. You cannot fight for some of our founding rights without others. And you cannot enable change in Washington by sending the same old people there.
For anyone who thinks elections don't matter, or all candidates are the same, I urge you to read this one more time. I don't think it's a stretch to say that few candidates running for office this year will so fully embrace this agenda of freedom and prosperity, of fighting the power of the federal government while working to ensure that the rights of Americans are restored.
If you agree, I ask for your help.
Hey Everyone...take a look at clint Didier's new attack ad against the establishment republican..things are really heating up.
Things just keep getting curiouser and curiouser...
GOProud, a Washington-based group that represents gay conservatives, announced Friday that feisty right-wing pundit Ann Coulter would keynote the organization’s upcoming “Homocon” fundraiser party.
“I’m so tickled that she agreed to do it,” Jimmy LaSalvia, executive director of GOProud told The Daily Caller. “Think about it: She’s hilarious, she’s provocative and, honestly, our folks just love her.”
LaSalvia said Coulter was the only person the group asked to headline the party, and she immediately agreed.
“Of course I’ll do it,” Coulter wrote to GOProud when they asked her to join the event. “I’m the right-wing Judy Garland!”
GOProud used that quip to advertise the event, adding, “our gays are more macho than their straights!” which Coulter wrote in a 2005 article comparing liberals and conservatives.
"The government needs to be exposed because it cannot be trusted to expose itself, the light of day and the light of truth are the best disinfectants for the government"
On Wednesday, August 4th, a group of black tea party supporters - which included conservative leaders, organization spokespersons, authors, entertainers and activists - held a press conference to dispel false claims about the Tea Party movement.

A few excerpts:
Ron Paul was very enthusiastic about Clint on his positions on the war, farm subsidies, immigration and economics.
Clint Didier had an opportunity to ask questions of Ron Paul and you could see the genuine appreciation he has for Dr. Paul.

MOSCOW (AFP) – Russia, the world's third wheat exporter, Thursday banned grain exports for the next four-and-a-half months due to a record drought that has destroyed millions of hectares (acres) of its land.
Wheat futures shot up to new two-year highs on commodities markets after the sudden announcement from Prime Minister Vladimir Putin raised concerns about global grain supplies.
"In connection with the unusually high temperatures and the drought, I consider it right to impose a temporary ban on the export from Russia of grain and other products produced from grain," Putin told a government meeting.
Russia earlier this week slashed its 2010 grain harvest forecast to 70-75 million tonnes, compared with a harvest of 97 million tonnes in 2009, owing to the worst drought for decades.
You think something big isn't up?
KHOU, Houston's local CBS affiliate, ran this very favorable father and son piece on last night's local news broadcast. I was quite surprised but could it mean that we're winning??
HOUSTON—Ron Paul, a mild-mannered grandfather from Lake Jackson, has been in Congress for 22 years—but he doesn’t have any kind words for politicians.
"I see politicians as pretty weak people, because they just follow prevailing attitudes," Paul, a Republican, said.
Paul has always followed his convictions. He believes in less government, so he opposed the stimulus plan, the bank bailout at the war in Iraq.
