There has been so many Ron Paul T-shirt forum post ideas that have gone through this thread, but let's end this here, and make a sticky for this and put this on the front of the dailypaul!!
"Voted NO on allowing embryonic stem cell research. Good show there, Ron.
Wants to scientifically and legally define "life" as beginning at conception.
"Believed Don't Ask Don't Tell was a "decent policy".
Believes business should suffer no compunction to provide gender-equal pay.
Voted YES to ban gay adoptions. Nice, Ron. Real fucking nice.
Doesn't believe public schools violating the First Amendment by imposing prayer upon their students is a "federal issue".
Supports tax-credited programs for Christian schools.
"Although he has been (famously) ignored by much of the media during the 2012 election cycle (vis-à-vis his relative standing in the GOP field), Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul is polling at approximately 10 percent in the race for the GOP nomination. That represents a monumental uptick from his standing in the Republican field four years prior in mid-August 2007.."
I've been following polls for Ron Paul online, and he usually wins by thousands of votes. So, I created this poll just now to test the theory.
So, can we, Dr. Paul's supporters, win any poll that we want by hundreds or thousands?
Edited since there is another thread on this already here:
A glowing read:
That's right. Ron Paul jumped into third place...and the media continues to ignore his candidacy. I can't explain it as anything other than outright bias against the man and his ideas.
One thing to take away from the poll is that it only includes current, declared candidates. It does not, for example, include potential candidates Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Chris Christie, Rudolph Giuliani, or George Pataki - all of whom have made noise about possibly jumping into the race at a later date.
One of them could possibly be very successful following a later-entrant strategy. As of today, a full 17% of respondents indicated "no preference" in their vote.
Think about that for a minute. "None of the above" essentially takes second place right now, ahead of everyone but Rick Perry - and even Republicans aren't crazy enough to nominate Rick Perry. This means one thing: there is room for either one of the marginalized candidates (like Ron Paul) to gain a lot of support, or a new candidate to emerge and become an instant challenger.
Given his three percent jump in the polls (despite the entrance of former Democrat and popular Texas governor Rick Perry into the race) shows that Ron Paul's numbers are steady and rising. Are we witnessing the promised Ron Paul revolution, or has the Texas congressman maxed out his voter numbers? I suppose the analysis depends on who you ask.
Like it or not, we can't win without the funds to create radio and television ads.
I have convinced almost all of my friends to vote for Ron Paul, but have yet to convince any of them to donate to Dr. Paul.
If your not a delegate, then I would suggest, that the next best thing you could do, would be to promote the money bombs.
When is the next moneybomb?
That date will be my primary focus.
Spread the word, tell people to put their money where there mouth is.
In a recent column, Jeffrey Lord warned that Ron Paul's presidential bid was secretly a "Neoliberal Reeducation Campaign." Writes Lord: "the Paul campaign is not just a campaign for president. This is a campaign -- a serious campaign -- to re-educate the American people…" For Lord, Paul's alleged reeducation mission means passing off liberal ideas as conservative. This is amusing -- because this is precisely what self-described conservatives of Lord's ilk have been doing for years.
Imagine that there never was a President George W. Bush, and when Bill Clinton left the White House he was immediately replaced with Barack Obama. Now imagine Obama carried out the exact same agenda as Bush -- Medicare Plan D, No Child Left Behind, the Iraq and Afghanistan wars -- the whole works. Would conservatives have generally supported Obama as they did Bush -- or would they have rightly criticized the most big government president in our history at that time?
Despite his glaringly statist record, did Lord ever consider Bush a "neo-liberal"?
Lord's response to Jack's response is revisionist garbage. Don't forget to leave your coments on their site folks!

Thanks Brutus56 for making us aware!
An eh article (he leaves in the token "but he can't get elected" meme):
...Mr. Paul is one of the few politicians for whom there are no sacred fiscal cows. He talks about cutting every aspect of government, including defence and entitlement spending. And his track record in the House shows that he’s not afraid to follow through on his promises and vote against bills that run contrary to his values (a virtue that is extremely rare in politics).
Great article by Doug Wead in Newsmax:
I have enjoyed reading about how supporters give the name Ron Paul out at Starbucks. Recently I was invited to join a Fantasy Football league and I was thinking about using this name for my team: Ron Paul 2012. I am sure that would spark some comments in my league.
Ron Paul Headed Back to Iowa and New Hampshire
Paul to visit both early states this weekend
August 24, 2011 11:56 AM Eastern Daylight Time
LAKE JACKSON, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Today, the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign released a schedule of campaign stops for this weekend. Paul will visit both New Hampshire and Iowa, marking his first visit back to the Hawkeye State since his historic showing at the Ames Straw Poll.

If Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) ran against President Barack Obama today, he’d run about even with the incumbent, according a new Gallup poll. Such a performance is noteworthy, as longtime front runner Mitt Romney holds a within-the-error-margin 48 to 46 percent edge against Obama. It’s also a stark change since Paul’s last try in the 2008 election cycle - more than seven in 10 of Republicans and GOP leaning independents couldn’t recognize Paul’s name or offered no opinion of him in an October 2007 Gallup poll October 2007 Gallup poll (dataset available via Roper).
I'm not a huge fan of Rev. Joyce Meyer, but she has a saying that I think applies in this case.
New Level = New Devil
Regardless of your religious views, or lack thereof, it should be fairly obvious that there is a battle between good and evil taking place. Call it what you like.
The point is that we are taking on some pretty evil characters, and they are not going to just let Ron Paul waltz into the WH without one hell of a fight.
