But don’t take our word for it; this man stands entirely on his own merit.

Ron Paul 2008 for President

(This entry emulates the about Ron Paul page on the link above, much more info is contained on the official site, this entry serves only as an intro)

Ron PaulCongressman Ron Paul is the leading advocate for freedom in our nation’s capital. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Dr. Paul tirelessly works for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies. He is known among his congressional colleagues and his constituents for his consistent voting record. Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution.In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the “one exception to the Gang of 535” on Capitol Hill.  

Ron Paul was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Gettysburg Ron PaulCollege and the Duke University School of Medicine, before proudly serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s. He and his wife Carol moved to Texas in 1968, where he began his medical practice in Brazoria County. As a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology, Dr. Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies. He and Carol, who reside in Lake Jackson, Texas, are the proud parents of five children and have 17 grandchildren.

While serving in Congress during the late 1970s and early 1980s, Dr. Paul’s limited-government ideals were not popular in Washington. In 1976, he was one of only four Republican congressmen to endorse Ronald Reagan for president.

During that time, Congressman Paul served on the House Banking committee, where he was a strong advocate for sound monetary policy and an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve’s inflationary measures. He was an unwavering advocate of pro-life and pro-family values. Dr. Paul consistently voted to lower or abolish federal taxes, spending and regulation, and used his House seat to actively promote the return of government to its proper constitutional levels. In 1984, he voluntarily relinquished his House seat and returned to his medical practice.

Ron PaulDr. Paul returned to Congress in 1997 to represent the 14th congressional district of Texas. He presently serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. He continues to advocate a dramatic reduction in the size of the federal government and a return to constitutional principles.

Congressman Paul’s consistent voting record prompted one of his congressional colleagues to say, “Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers’ ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are.” Another colleague observed, “There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles. Ron Paul is one of those few.”

  Brief Overview of Congressman Paul’s Record:

He has never voted to raise taxes.
He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
He has never voted to raise congressional pay.
He has never taken a government-paid junket.
He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.

He voted against the Patriot Act.
He voted against regulating the Internet.
He voted against the Iraq war.

He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.
He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

Congressman Paul introduces numerous pieces of substantive legislation each year, probably more than any single member of Congress.

The US Military Supports Ron Paul

“Among all candidates, Dr. Paul is now first in total donations from military personnel and veterans. While this may come as a surprise to some, Tom Engelhardt identified the primary reason when he asked rhetorically, “why should (military personnel) want to be endlessly redeployed to a lost war in a lost land?” (see Why the US Military Loves Ron Paul).” (Ron Paul: In for the Long Haul,  Scott Sutton)                                                                                                           

The 2008 election will break the media & the establishment’s “evil/lesser evil” voting DICTATE. Don’t “waste” your vote on either “evil”. Join the Revolution! Vote for honor, principle and demonstrated actions in America’s & her citizens best interests! Register Republican (in MD before 11/19) and vote Ron Paul in the primary!

U.S. Representative Ron Paul

Is Ron Paul a true Republican? A true Conservative? Ron Paul Is “the American people’s” man, no matter which side of the isle you’re on, Ron Paul’s strong Constitutional stand is the true American position, regardless which side you’ve taken on any wedge issue “the establishment” has used to divide Americans. But if you’re wondering if he fits the true conservative or Republican mode, check out the following, THEN,  you decide.

1860 Republican National Platform

Who are the patriots, Congressman Paul? 

“The original American patriots were those individuals brave enough to resist with force the oppressive power of King George.  I accept the definition of patriotism as that effort to resist oppressive state power.  The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility, and out of self interest — for himself, his family, and the future of his country — to resist government abuse of power.  He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to the state.”

Ron Paul 2008 – The Voice Of The People On CSPAN

“Far too many Republicans in recent times have claimed to be fiscally responsible…then vote for big spending programs that will leave our grandchildren bankrupt.
They claim to believe in the Constitution’s limits on government’s power, but their actions say something else entirely.
…As Congress’s premier defender of the Constitution, you would have the platform necessary to espouse the ideals that are vital to turning America around –
and you would be in a position to hold other candidates accountable for talking one way to their supporters at home, and then voting another way in public office.
I look forward to the prospect of you running, and having the platform to raise the issues that too many candidates would prefer to ignore.”  Congressman Walter B. Jones, R-North Carolina

Ron Paul on Federal Reserve, banking and economy

(Excerpts of What People Are Saying)

“…Americans have become disillusioned…we hear all the same promises…We, the people, know things are not right;
 yet we know our nation was founded on principles that allowed the United States of America to rise above all nations…The answer to restoring our great nation – respected throughout the world – is to reinstate the Constitution. Our republic can be saved…
There is one man who believes in our government operating solely under the purist intentions of our Founding Fathers:
A man who governs according to the Constitution, even when he is the only one. Ron Paul is the only man who can lead the way.
There is hope for America. Be a part of it.”  -Bill Dumas Hollywood, CA. Film Industry

On the edge Asks American voters to consider…Is the dream to grow up and become President of the United States still alive today for an average American youth? Or have we succumbed to media and the establishments dictum allowing this honor to become a privelage available only to the wealthiest elite?“We the people” have long wanted a true alternative to the “evil & lesser evil” presidential candidate choices we’ve had through many elections. ACGR vowed when we began this mission to expose the bandits, no matter which side of the aisle they are on and in the same heartiness of spirit we would spot light anyone who proved worthy to safeguard our beloved country and our Republic as they have sworn to do.We believe the 2008 election is every bit as important to this nations future as our Declaration of Independence from the British. Therefore we dig through mountains of information as we conduct our investigations and research, carefully scrutinizing our government body members, watching their actions vs. their words.We found Ron Paul, long before he announced his candidacy, and discovered a man whose record indicates he’s cut from a cloth like our great founders. If you haven’t heard of him, it’s likely because mainstream media ignores him and “the establishment” doesn’t want you to hear  his message of truth. If you have heard of him but your perception has been foreshadowed, you owe it to yourself to check him out personally, so you can form your own opinion and make your own decisions.In our opinion, the Honorable Congressman, Dr. Ron Paul offers US a truly viable opportunity for the reform and restoration our country so desperately needs, but we don’t want you to take our word on that, check him out for yourselves.If you decide you like Ron Paul’s positions and his vision of returning the US to it’s Constitutional foundation you’ll likely wonder  “If you vote for a ‘lesser tier’ candidate will you  waste your vote?”. Remember who is dictating the ‘top tier’ candidates by giving them constant media coverage, while often better, more qualified candidates are shut out by MSM who ignores them.Today, more than any other time in our recent history “We the people” have the power to end this cycle.  Ron Paul’s message is so infectious, lighting such passionate hope & fervor in the hearts and minds of Americans, that grassroots activists who first started his campaign on the internet have been joined by thousands of organizers nationwide in a “boots on the ground” movement who are determined to oppose MSM and “the establsihment’s” dictum and deliver his name and message of “Hope for America”  to every household in the United States!  Tired of rogue government, endless war, unstable economy, severe national debt, a government who has largely begun to rule vs. governing, ignoring their constituents, “the people” have started quite a revolution!Decide for yourself, you can let mainstream media & “the establishment” dictate what you know, think about, our future, the future of our posterity and nation or you can check him out yourself and think about the significance of what you learn at this time in America.Remember, if we truly want change, it’s up to us, the voters, to make it happen. Otherwise, truly waste your vote and cast it for the “evil or the lesser evil” candidates you’re told to.

Ron Paul: In for the Long Haul, Scott Sutton

“…I believe there are more plausible reasons for Ron Paul’s “online success” – most importantly, the Internet is the primary source of information about Dr. Paul. As early as last fall – two full years before the election – the conventional media and major-party establishments had already anointed the top six Republican and Democratic candidates (Giuliani, McCain, Romney, Clinton, Obama, & Edwards). Since then, countless opinion makers have informed Americans that these six politicians complete the list of “viable” Presidential options. In other words, no need to look further – we’ve done your thinking for you. How and why this happened exactly is a topic for another day. (Hint – Follow the money.) The important point here is that each of the Anointed Candidates has received regular, daily coverage since that time (and, in some cases, for several years now). Although Dr. Paul has benefited from a smattering of media attention since his “blowback” exchange with Giuliani in May, people who are curious about Paul’s track record and platform must turn to the Internet. The conventional media is most unlikely to begin covering Dr. Paul on a regular basis, no matter how much traction he gains. Consequently, Ron Paul’s supporters must assume the task of spreading the word. Fortunately, many of us are happy to do so, and when people first learn of Dr. Paul’s track record, they typically want to know more. As regular readers of my blog know, Ron Paul challenges US foreign policy on a refreshingly honest and fundamental level – a level of inquiry wholly absent from most political forums. And Dr. Paul’s forthrightness doesn’t stop with foreign policy, as he applies the same intellectual rigor to issues involving civil liberties, health care, immigration, education, our fiat-money system, and so on.Reading Tea LeavesNow, I’m not a political analyst, and things could certainly change in a hurry – but given the current landscape, some future developments seem rather predictable:

First, Ron Paul’s Jeffersonian liberalism will give him a significant advantage over his pro-war, neoconservative competitors. While the other candidates vie for the support of the modern Republican base, Ron Paul provides the only real alternative for any traditional conservatives who remain in the party. Without Ron Paul, each GOP debate would be a brain-dead echo chamber. Perhaps more importantly, Dr. Paul will appeal to those Americans who long ago abandoned politics because the big-government statism of the two major parties was hostile to their values. With recent voter turnout in presidential elections hovering around 50%, this may be a surprisingly large block of potential voters. For Ron Paul supporters, the key will be finding these people and telling them about Dr. Paul – a simple, mass-marketing numbers game.

Second, due to this ideological edge and campaign realities, we’ll witness a steady whittling of the Republican field in coming months – a thinning that recently began with Jim Gilmore’s exit from the race. With the exception of Ron Paul, the other candidates have spent their funds like drunken Congressmen, and the “second tier” has little to show for their binge. Most of these campaigns suffer from anemic fundraising, a moribund Internet presence, and lackluster crowds (certainly nothing approaching the numerous crowds gathering on Ron Paul’s behalf, as documented here, here, here, here, here, and here). By next spring, the existing field of contenders will be reduced to a Final Four – Giuliani, Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney, and Ron Paul.

Third, Ron Paul is in this race for the long haul – at least until next September’s Republican convention. Thus far, the Paul campaign has run a frugal operation, relying primarily on the efforts of grassroots activists. These efforts are steadily snowballing support, as evidenced by Dr. Paul’s three-month ascent from anonymity to 3% in national polls, and that figure will continue to rise at the rate people learn about our candidate. As Jennifer Haman pointed out, Ron Paul leads in the polls of those who have heard him speak. In the meantime, the campaign is shrewdly storing its dry powder – mounting millions to be meted out at judicious points throughout the campaign.

Only time will tell what the future holds for Ron Paul’s presidential bid – but for now, there’s great cause for optimism.” July 27, 2007

  5. According to the web site below, Dr. Paul is scheduled to speak on
    “Nonintervention: The Original Foreign Policy” at the “Restoring the
    Republic: Foreign Policy and Civil Liberties” conference of the Future
    of Freedom Foundation at the Hyatt Regency Reston.

  6. As I mentioned before, this year, I decided to push away from the computer more often and become more of an “acitvist.” That was good timing too, when you consider that we actually have a chance to save this Republic by electing Ron Paul as the President of these united states.

    The purchase of a hi-speed, DVD duplicator has made it possible to supply my personal needs and the needs of many who want a stack of one dollar “truth movement” DVD’s and CD’s to give to others.

    Originally, it was just a project for my favorite forum:
    http://freedom4um.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi

    I learned how to build web sites with Mac’s iWeb and decided to devote one to the ONE DOLLAR DVD PROJECT:
    http://www.onedollardvdproject.com

    The dollar donation covers my costs, kinda, yet makes them affordable to the typical patriot needing inexpensive tools to help fight the globalists. There is little or no profit, as I give away many DVD’s locally.

    Recently, I added two new titles and a Ron Paul page:
    http://www.onedollardvdproject.com/DVD/RonPaul.html

    ‘Was overwhelmed at first but, now, I have a system and a steady flow of interested activists. Many are repeat patrons who are taking the project seriously by acquiring stacks of discs to give away regularly.

    Please, help us make this worthy project a success.

  9. July 4th Idea

    I read a post on the Ron Paul Forum that led to a You Tube video
    about all the people for a Ron Paul meeting in DC on July 4th 2007
    (to show the media strength in our numbers etc.)

    I’m not sure I can swing the finances to fly to DC but I have
    thought of an idea I’d like to share.

    Can you image if every Ron Paul Group around the country took the
    opportunity to participate in a local July 4th parade?

    If you have a July 4th parade in your community, sign up to
    participate! Decorate a float or have people walking … drive a
    convertable … signs galore … in some parades, they allow people
    to walk along curbside … and you could pass out cards or small
    flyers … wearing of course, your shirts and buttons … The
    cards/flyers could have contact info for the local RP meetups and
    national website.

    I have checked into a couple of local parades and the entry fees
    range from $35 to $150 (or so) depending on the size of the entry
    (how many people, how many cars etc – also, deadlines are nearing!)

    Food for thought –

    Peace to you, Ron – You ROCK!!

    I hope all of us realize exactly what’s going on here. The media has and
    continues to do everything in their power to *censor* Ron Paul while at the
    same time *promoting* their pre-selected “frontrunners”.

    This is not America anymore, this is a takeover and perversion of everything
    that this country’s supposed to stand for. I am fed up to the point that’s
    hard to put into words. Young men and women are dying every day in Iraq for
    so-called “freedom” and at the same time right here in this country there’s
    this Nazi / Facist crap going on in the highest levels of government. And
    if you think the terms “Nazi & Facist” are extreme then I earnestly suggest
    you take another inventory of our situation.

    Ron Paul has said himself that the we, the U.S., is in serious danger of a
    dictatorship; We are 1 scare away from that right now.

    So again, the magic question, the only question is “what are you going to
    do?” We have to first be aware of what’s at stake. Think about our
    children and what they are facing if WE don’t put an end to this. If not
    us, then WHO? If not now, then WHEN? Things are *drastically *coming to a
    head.

    Part of what it is to be a *conscious and aware* human being is to
    understand the forces that surround you 360 degrees. So I’ll leave you
    with a some words of en*COURAGE*ment…

    “*I swear upon the altar of God, eternal hostility to every form of tyranny
    over the mind of man.*” – Thomas Jefferson

    Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the
    wiles of the devil.
    *For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities,
    against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against
    spiritual wickedness in high places.
    *Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to
    withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
    *Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the
    breastplate of righteousness*;
    And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
    Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench
    all the fiery darts of the wicked. – Ephesians 6: 11-16
    *****************
    Amen, sifu.

  11. Anyone failing to satisfy any of these criteria would be deported immediately, without the possibility of appeal. ,
