So many people gave and sacrificed so much leading up to the 2008 Ron Paul Presidential election. Many of us began sacrificing in 2007, and I recall some extreme bitter disappointment back in 2008.


But we had started something bigger than just 2008, and I'm so happy that enough people who "WOKE UP" back then did not go back to sleep, and decided to use that energy and momentum and keep things going.

And now November 2010, we can truly enjoy the fruits of our labor, starting back all the way more than 3 years ago.

Congrats everyone. Who knew there would be a Tea Party movement? Who knew there would be a Campaign for Liberty organization? Who knew we could actually have another Dr. Paul in Washington?

Now Ron Paul has some allies, and he won't be the only "Dr. No" out there. There will be a voice that has to be heard and it won't be so easily ignored.

We are in uncharted waters and it's pretty exciting.

For now, congratulations, to all of you who have fought for the cause of liberty and freedom and finally get to enjoy a real victory!

I too feel this is a bit of 'revenge for '08'

Having someone from our movement in the senate is HUGE! If we'd all not gotten behind Ron in 2007/08 what are the chances Rand would have even had a chance at senator now?

I thought 2008 was a huge victory. I know that there were some that really thought Ron Paul had a chance at the nomination, but I thought that was pure fantasy. It was a great achievement to do as well as we did fighting against the media and establishment But we scared the heck out of the establishment and started the Tea Party movement that has shaken up the 2010 election. Rand Paul's election was another great step in 2010-- and I'm glad he'll be joined by other Constitutional Conservatives.

In 2012 we can move the ball forward still further. We have everyone's attention now. :D

Yes it was a victory, otherwise like you said, none of the other things could have happened.

But this time it feels like a solid concrete victory. A victory where no matter how hard the establishment tried, they could not keep Dr. Paul out of office. We had votes behind us, it tastes pretty sweet.

I'm trying to avoid saying "Yeah!!, but..."
...too bad the post 911 damage is so bad.

1) Yes, It "sucks" the world is so messed up.
2) If the world wasn't so messed up we wouldn't be making so much progress.

Does anyone know if Rand mentions "the Aqua Buddha thing" in his new book?
