And just maybe Dr. Paul will be tomorrows ... ? Even if he doesn't win the nomination, he is winning the spirit of the party(and of the people at large, not only in america but around the world - see http://www.australians4ronpaul.com/ as an example) and his ideas are finally being debated, which is cause for hope ...

Dr. Paul is doing more good for this country and for the world at large by simply running for office than any of the other candidates will ever do even if elected.

Good find! I knew Paul had to be in second place by now. You can feel it. Even the pundits are starting to say he can WIN the nomination.

If Ron can attract supporters of the Occupy movement, then we really may have a revolution.

Here's his plan that he'll be officially announcing Monday (but you get to find out about it NOW).

Ron Paul's plan being announced Monday. Cutting $1 trillion. Cutting his pay to $39,000 | Ron Paul 2012 | Sound Money, Peace and Liberty (http://www.dailypaul.com/182867/ron-pauls-plan-being-announced-monday-cutting-1-trillion-cutting-his-pay-to-39000 - broken link)

Also Doug Wead wrote a great article about how the media trying to shut Ron Paul out is getting comical. He points out that he won the L.A. county straw pole further confirming the support he has in CA when he won the CA straw pole that the media mentioned nothing about.

He also pointed out that the media has now decided not to bother with the poles after debates asking people who they thought won because Ron Paul always wins them. Evidently there was only one after that last debate and that one showed Ron Paul winning the debate with 75% of the votes or something.

Ignoring Ron Paul Has Reached Comic Proportions

This performance will really help him. Notice how at the end so many of the other candidates rushed over to shake HIS hand.

No KIDDING. What does ANY other country do for us that we have supposedly "helped"? By helping I'm thinking of the money we've sent - not necessarily sending troops over and setting up bases when we aren't wanted.

When are WE going to receive some foreign aid from other countries?

Supposedly the "plastic men" Ron Paul ad ran every half hour leading up to the debate on CNN and he's got two new ads ...this one called "Consistent"


Ron Paul Ad - Consistent - YouTube

and this one called "Plan".
