US Congressional Candidate whose district is on the border of New York's Financial District. Running as a Democrat and very critical of the Federal Reserve. Dan O'Connor has been very well received by the liberty community in New York and attended Occupy Wall Street yesterday.
It would be of advantage for our side to show the left that line. Obama raises money from banks. We raise the money from troops and people.
Got to the Coffee Shop early for the Des Moines Meet-Up. Wanted to put something together to help promote the Open Primary States. I noticed someone asking for the list to be done by Date, so that's what I did, with some links to polls and articles and a case for Democrats and Independents to pull the Republican Ballot when they go to vote:

Last election cycle, I was trying to make my case for Ron Paul to both a friend of mine and to my parents. My friend at the time was very neo-con and thought Ron Paul's ideals were out there, and believed that he had no chance to win. At the same time, my parents, who are very reasonable people, bought into the Obama hype and supported him very strongly. In early 2008, I let my parents listen to the debate where Fox questioned his electability, and I think that opened their eyes to how the republican establishment ridiculed him and tried to minimize him.
i want to thank the the daily paul and ron paul supporters in general for the reception i've received with the few comments i've posted, and the kindness of supporters i've met despite me having some philosophical differences with them.
i hate labels but since you may be wondering the closest i can get to defining my political persuasion...maybe "kucinich democrat". i did come across a comment or two calling liberals who support ron paul "useful idiots" which kind of got to me at first since i consider myself reasonably informed, but i realize most here have very strong beliefs (as do i) and there are bound to be some who throw insults around, and that's the case with any political movement, BUT like ron paul says liberty is not a cause that divides people and i think we really have more in common than we do issues that could divide us.
it's really unfair that paul supporters have had this stereotype superimposed on them as being closed minded, dogmatic, my way or the highway types because my experience indicates to me the complete opposite, and in case you would like to know - i will be voting for paul in the IN gop primaries and of course in the general election should he win the nomination.
as i've previously stated i have a lot more shared beliefs with dr. paul than president obama, and i really hope this blue republican thing explodes.
For peace, for liberty.
I have a friend who is a lifelong Democrat and thinks Bill Clinton was the greatest President in history. During 2007, I was trying to turn him and he even went to the campaign office in Las Vegas. He was dissatisfied because the "kids" there couldn't answer any questions, they were all stoned, and, in fact, he said the campaign office smelled like marijuana (he's a former smoker, so he knows the smell). He voted for Obama, but like many Obama supporters I have spoken with, he is extremely disappointed in what Obama has done in office. The other day, I was talking to him about Dr.
"In this election if Ron Paul gets anywhere near the nomination I would certainly support him. He is the only one that I've seen in American politics that seems to have a clue about what's going on."

I am not one for conspiracy theories. One of the important things I learned in my brief time in Washington D.C. is that it is very hard to keep a secret in politics. But in the wake of Ron Paul’s near victory (he lost by less than 1%) in the Iowa Straw Poll I had to fight the thought that there was a concerted effort among many to keep Ron Paul as far off the radar screen of Americans as possible.
Well, not exactly. But disaffected Democrats can take heart. There is a candidate who supports many of their same views and has a history of being a thoughtful, smart, and honest individual. I’m speaking, of course, of Congressman Ron Paul.
Spread this far and wide!
Well, started the day with the usual list, and on my list before heading to work I had to go to DEQ. In Oregon your car has to pass Department of Environmental Quality before you can renew your tags. Well I pulled in and as the lady asked me to get out of my car so she could plug in her computer, I noticed a sign on the wall that said this "Due to Budget Cuts, DEQ will No Longer Be Open on Friday". I made some comment about my fee $145 to renew my tags and it took less than 30 seconds.
I have just compiled a list of 'teaching' videos, that is, videos you can use for people who say, 'Who is Ron Paul and what does he stand for' or, 'Is Ron healthy enough' or 'What is Ron's voting record' etc. There is something here for all the issues just about, to let Democrats, Republicans, and Independents see for themselves. Just copy this list of videos. I did all the work so you don't have to.
First, Ron on the debates:
FOX and MSNBC polls ARE correct truer random samplings of the people:
