Win or Lose I really hope that HQ will make a Official page of candidates that share Paul's core beliefs. And it would be great if Paul himself could add his comments about certain candidates from time to time. These "endorsed by Paul" cadidates would be our most heavily financed.

Of course I would love to see his son at the top of that list!

But in doing so we could all continue to fight this revolution by supporting important positions with finances and man power.

I suppose our primary goal would be to elect Senators and Governors first as they have the most power.

The Paul Congress (http://paulcongress.com/) is keeping track of all of the Paulist office seekers, just fyi.

I think he ought to challenge Mitch McConnell this year for his senate seat. He's running completely unopposed this year.

I watched that interview with Rand. His voice pattern sounds EXACTLY like Ron Paul. It's amazing how similar they sound.

Yeah I know about those but many do not.
I think grassroots site are great for some things but for this I would hope to see a Official page. Also they could redirect ronpaul2008 to this new site.

I guess I just feel with grassroots people will lose interest and the sites will go to crap. With HQ they can ask for one last money bomb to run this "revolution" site for years.

Just my opinion...

I met Rand in NH while I was doing phone canvassing, he is very much like his father, quiet and very nice, I definatly can see him being a great Congressman or Senator in the future. That being said, lately I have been getting involved at very low levels of local politics, talking with school committee people, going to some fundraisers and observing as campaign work may very well be what I do later in life, and I have to say, most of the politicians I have met have been over-the-top "I'll shake your hand even if its covered in sewage for a vote," type people, way outgoing and very nauseating, its the part of politics that I personally find repugnant, however its the part of politics that wins, it seems like both Dr. Paul and Dr. Rand Paul are more laid back let me listen, you be in control of the conversation type people, I hope I am wrong, but maybe they just dont have the personalities to win major elections like this... I hope I am wrong

I also hope people will start recall petitions for existing politicians, it doesn't take many people to go get signatures. Then a new election happens and problems get solved sooner than you thought.

I heard Rand speak at my local university. Seemed like a very decent guy.
