Iowa talk radio host Steve Deace, a prominent Huckabee ally from 2008, forecasts the 2012 candidates will finish in this order at Ames: Michele Bachmann (21 percent), Ron Paul (18 percent), Tim Pawlenty (15 percent), Rick Santorum (13 percent), Herman Cain (9 percent), Mitt Romney (8 percent), Rick Perry (7 percent), Newt Gingrich (4 percent), Sarah Palin (3 percent), Thaddeus McCotter (1 percent), Jon Huntsman (1 percent).
It was just on the Rasmussen Report hour radio program on 630 WMAL.
Before ending the show Rasmussen mentioned two points:
1. Of all the candidates he polled Ron Paul has the most solid support
2. 49% of RP voters may not vote for the Republican candidate if RP is not nominated
Fewer voters than ever feel the federal government has the consent of the governed.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 17% of Likely U.S. Voters think the federal government today has the consent of the governed. Sixty-nine percent (69%) believe the government does not have that consent. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here .)
The number of voters who feel the government has the consent of the governed - a foundational principle, contained in the Declaration of Independence - is down from 23% in early May and has fallen to its lowest level measured yet.
The Ontario County Tea Party NY proudly gives our press release and announces we are fully supporting Ron Paul for President of the United States.
Congressman Dr. Ron Paul is the only presidential candidate who shares our belief in the United States Constitution. He has a proven congressional record of voting against expanding federal powers, demanding the audit and abolishing the illegal central bank, the Federal Reserve, eliminating departments and agencies not authorized by the constitution, bring our troops home and repealing the Patriot Act.
Ron Paul's clarity on the economy is often misunderstood by many, and sometimes distorted by opponents. In the debt ceiling debate, Paul was once again painted in broad strokes with the "Dr. No" brush. Where facts were at issue, Paul's approach was logically impeccable, though largely ignored by the vintage media and supporters of big government.
Cuts? What Cuts?
The Monroe County Tea Party NY proudly gives our press release and announces we are fully supporting Congressman Dr. Ron Paul for President of the United States.

As Tom says in his post, "I ask this great entrepreneur of libertarian ideas all kinds of interesting things." I personally can't wait for Tom's rumored radio show that will be starting very soon.. This was another example of how he will have a great radio show!

People who are skeptical of Ron Paul will be stunned after watching this. I was stunned!
Please take the time this Sunday afternoon or evening to share this video with people you know and love, and then post it on message boards everywhere!
I'm going to show my mom and dad later today because I really think it will make a difference.

Edwin Vieira talks to James Turk about his book "Pieces of Eight: The Monetary Powers and Disabilities of the United States Constitution".
Edwin explains the role that the gold commission hearings and Ron Paul played in inspiring the book. He also says how important and urgent monetary reform is for the United States and how the best chance of reform comes at the state level, given gridlock in Washington.

How to Market the Greatest Congressman in History
by Thomas Woods
The Panic of 2008 was stage one of the collapse Ron Paul has been warning about for much of his career. Stage two is unfolding before us in the form of the debt crisis, of which the recent downgrading of the U.S. by S&P is only a symbol.
In short, the calamity that Ron Paul has spent his career warning about is upon us. It boggles the mind that Americans could think a difficult choice confronts them in the Republican primary when they have the opportunity to support a true economic prophet, not to mention the greatest congressman in American history.
We are out to change that.
The purpose of our recent billboard campaign in Iowa has been to plant important seeds in the public mind. Our boards read, “The only candidate who predicted the economic crisis is the only one who can fix it.” This is a theme we intend to hammer home repeatedly. When people hear the name Ron Paul, we want them to think: “That’s the guy who predicted this economic mess.”
There is a temptation (not shared by us) to portray Ron Paul as another plain vanilla conservative Republican who favors low taxes and balanced budgets. But a key principle of marketing is differentiation. There is no point in going to the trouble and expense of producing a television ad that Michele Bachmann could also have produced. Ron Paul is not an older, male Michele Bachmann. If we pitch him that way, we will give voters no reason not to vote for the actual Michele Bachmann.
