Barr argues for the elimination of the income tax – to be replaced with a revenue-neutral national sales tax. Just a few years ago, the Republicans ran a candidate who promised "no new taxes."

"Let him speak, give him a role, because if these people are disrespected -- you know, this, combined with Bob Barr's announcement that Barr now is running as a Libertarian, is going to just take votes away from John McCain and could be a disaster for the Republican Party."

Two of the three complained about the lack of body and vehicle armor and the shortage of medical supplies and food. Both are against the war in Iraq.

Paulville? Count Ron Paul out

One man who won’t be moving there anytime soon: Ron Paul.
politico“I don’t think that’s the solution,” says the still-running Republican presidential candidate. “You want to spread out and be as pervasive as possible.”
The community is structured as a co-op; freedom-loving denizens can purchase plots as small as one acre and are not required to use the co-op’s water or energy supply.
But dropping out and creating an isolated community isn’t the answer, says Paul, a congressman from Texas. “You don’t want the ideas to be centered in one place,” he says. “But it shows how desperate people are for freedom.”

Big Government Responsible for Housing Bubble

The solution is for government to stop micromanaging the economy and texas straight talklet the market adjust, as painful as that will be for some. We should not force taxpayers, including renters and more frugal homeowners, to switch places with the speculators and take on those same risks that bankrupted them. It is a terrible idea to spread the financial crisis any wider or deeper than it already is, and to prolong the agony years into the future. Socializing the losses now will only create more unintended consequences that will give new excuses for further government interventions in the future. This is how government grows - by claiming to correct the mistakes it earlier created, all the while constantly shaking down the taxpayer. The market needs a chance to correct itself, and Congress needs to avoid making the situation worse by pretending to ride to the rescue.

Surprise GOP rule switch?

The proposed bylaws change comes in response to a request from salt lake tribuneRomney, after he dropped out of the race, to release his bound delegates.
That could free the delegates to support whomever they want at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul in September - a point not lost on Paul supporters.
On blogs and in e-mails, Paul backers have spread a strategy aimed at getting Paul supporters elected as delegates in order to keep Sen. John McCain from getting enough delegate support to clinch the nomination. That could force a convention fight, they argue, and give Paul a path - albeit a contorted one - to win the nomination.

Housing Market Crash Predicted By Ron Paul And Alan Greenspan

Making a statement before the Financial Services Committee of the House of Representatives in September of 2007, Paul said, "The housing boom was caused by the Federal Reserve's policy resulting in artificially low interest rates. Consumers, misled by low interest rates, were looking to consume, while homebuilders saw the low interest rates as a signal to build, and build they did." The larger the bubble, the more malinvestment would occur, and the more severe the correction would have to be.

But then, astoundingly and correctly, Dr. Paul does not say "Only I can fix this mess" – as have Senators Clinton, Obama, and McCain – he says: "Only you, the American people, can fix this mess." Dr. Paul confronts Americans with a reality that ought to both chill and inspire them.

The GOP is deadRepublican party has become just like the federal government, a large, self-appointed repository of power, completely separated from the intent of the original founders and framers, a place where bubble-up from the people power is overrun by top-down directive and control.

I have been so absolutely worn out and depressed at the obvious fate of our Country with the elections and all the campaign retoric constantly and now I can see real light at the end of the tunnel. This has made it necessary for me to stick around for another couple of years to help with this event. I am doing my best right now not to say what it is until Penny gives us the word but you can bet you all will be the first to hear this great plan and news of how to get it done.

Ron Paul's Delegate Wars (IV)

Other eyes as well. Even the "luminaries" of the Trilateral Commission, nolanat their Apr. 25-28 meet in Washington, DC (reports American Free Press) "expressed concern that Paul's rallies have attracted multitudes of young people who are getting 'their political education.' They want Republicans to pressure Paul to drop out now and stop his education rallies. This assignment was given to Thomas Foley, former U.S. House speaker."
Good luck to him. Paul is clearly enjoying the campaign, and has no intention of conceding before the National Covention. As he told CNN's Roberts: "What's the sense of having a convention if everything is decided?"

Military donations to anti-war candidates rise

During the reporting period, Paul — a former Air Force surgeon who airforcetimesbroke with his party to vote against the Iraq war — received the most military contributions, with $201,271.
That’s significantly more than the presumptive Republican nominee, Sen. John McCain from Arizona, who received $132,133 from military donors, according to CRP.
“I think that our fighting men and women want to protect America, defend our Constitution and defend our borders,” said Jesse Benton, a spokesman for Rep. Paul’s campaign. “I think they’re sick and tired of being sent overseas on these police actions and getting caught in the middle of these civil wars, and want someone like Ron Paul speaking sense.

The rebel forces of Paul -- Ron Paul -- organize to resist John McCain

Eric Herzik, a political scientist at the University of Nevada, Reno, said losangelestimesthe disruption reflected, among other things, that McCain had "yet to capture the hearts and minds of Nevada Republicans." Previously, Paul forces had elected about one-third of the delegates to the Missouri state Republcan convention.
All of which suggests there might be some drama or at least confrontations in St. Paul at the GOP's national convention in September after all.

PRIMARY: Ron Paul

The Republican Party has not fulfilled its promise to shrink the size of heraldbulletingovernment and restore our Constitutional Republic. Instead, deficits have exploded, entitlements are out of control, and our personal liberties are threatened. I believe that the solution to our problems can be found in Americans being as free and prosperous as possible. We need a president who will hold the federal government to abiding by the Constitution. I would focus on returning America to a sound monetary policy, strengthening our national security and ending our interventionist foreign policy, and stopping the abuses of our civil liberties.

Ron Paul takeover doesn’t materialize - Idioacracy alive and well in Maine GOP

I am constantly amazed at how our own citizens will defend a govenment that steals their property and enslaves them.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.


Later, when that still took too long, the majority voted to forgo any kennebecdebate and just vote on the amendments.
Among them was a proposal to adopt gold and silver as legal tender, abolish the IRS, conduct an audit of the gold at Fort Knox and repeal all federal firearm laws.
That one was soundly defeated.

GLOBAL ELITE GATHER IN D.C. - PETRIFIED ABOUT PAUL

While they are confident they can deal with any “potential president,” americanfreepressthe Trilateralists paid huge tribute to Ron Paul in an equally large twist of irony, by expressing alarm that he is causing “significant future damage.”
They expressed concern that Paul’s rallies have attracted multitudes of young people who are getting “their political education.” They want Republicans to pressure Paul to drop out now and stop his education rallies. This assignment was given to Thomas Foley, former U.S. House speaker.
The reasons Paul’s “education campaign” strikes fear into Trilateral hearts are obvious. Paul would refuse to surrender an ounce of U.S. sovereignty to an international organization and TC wants world government.

GOP candidate Ron Paul still campaigning

Paul, 72, the iconoclastic Texas Republican, gets less attention these thenewsobserverdays than he did when he was among a raft of GOP contenders. But organizers say at least 2,000 people have signed up to see him speak at a 3 p.m. event in Chapel Hill and a 6:30 p.m. speech in Durham.
"The state GOP has done their best to bury him," said Roxane Premont, an organizer of the events. "This is not really about a presidential campaign -- he is the leader of a movement that's about restoring our Constitution and our civil liberties."

Ron Paul supporters not lining up behind McCain

But tongues were set wagging about whether the adjournment was a la timesmaneuver to save McCain from the embarrassment of being swamped by Paul delegates.
Eric Herzik, a political scientist at the University of Nevada, Reno, said the fracas reflected, among other things, that McCain had "yet to capture the hearts and minds of Nevada Republicans."
All of which suggests there might be some drama at the GOP's national convention in September after all.

Why We Need Ron Paul

The reason we are in our current predicament is because, "We the lewrockwellpeople" have elected politicians rather than leaders. Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines a politician as "a person primarily interested in political office for selfish or other narrow usually short-sighted reasons." The people we have elected to Congress and the Presidency are politicians who are more concerned with their own re-election, maintaining power, and enrichment of their financial backers than they are about our great country.

Atlanta's Rock 100.5 The Regular Guys Interview Ron Paul

the regular guysNote: The beginning of the interview uses the same old MSM tricks of downplaying the Ron Paul and the movement.
These guys almost sound like war party cheerleaders. Taking positions that are largely towing the party line which is why the country is in the mess it is.
These guys are part of the MSM and thus part of problem.

Republicans split on state delegates

The fight for dominance in the state GOP is playing out in small battles smalltownpaperscounty by county, as supporters of Congressman Ron Paul wage war against the party establishment.
A group of Paul supporters in Hays County filed a complaint this week with state party leaders, alleging that delegates to the state convention were selected in a secret meeting in violation of party rules prior to the county conventions on March 29.
Griffin T. Spell, a political science major at Texas State University and a Pct. 334 delegate to the county convention, spearheaded the challenge.

John McCain is deceiving Oklahoma Republicans by having his volunteers say that they are from the State GOP

My husband just received a call from a woman stating she was a daily paulvolunteer for the Oklahoma GOP. She asked if we were planning on making it to the Oklahoma State Convention and since my husband wasn’t at the meet-up last night, he told her ‘yes’. I told him afterwards to call back and let them know we weren’t sure (because we don’t want anybody knowing our numbers), and when he did a reverse look-up on the number, it was from the John McCain HQ in Arlington, VA!!!

Manifesto Destiny

I may not be first, but I predict Ron Paul’s new book The Revolution: Aa manifesto lewrockwellManifesto will be a runaway best seller. A frightening thing for the other candidates: they haven’t done their homework. They will have nothing to offer at examination time when the American People ask: "What have You written lately – and how does it relate to restoring and protecting our Original Liberties and God-Given Rights?" They can cram if they wish, by reading some of Dr. Paul’s other books. Even if they cannot agree with anything in Dr. Paul’s new book it may be a good idea for all of them to read it very carefully, because we will all have to deal with the principles sooner or later. "Facts are stubborn things," said John Adams.
