All of them told us we could never win, they said we couldn't do it.. A lot of them said we didn't even have a chance. "It's impossible for Paul to win." "He can't win.." "He has no electability."


323 phone calls to Iowa, $500+ donated to grassroots efforts.. It's really emotional to see these poll results.

When our Government’s growth Infringes
On Personal Sovereignty
And Citizens find themselves Ensnared
In Webs of Bureaucracy;

Thinking back to the 07 SC debate. I was cooking dinner not really watching the debates when I first heard Ron Paul speak. Hearing him that night brought me to this board. I soon found myself walking my precinct here in So Cal. I have given a lot of time and money like a lot of you and I feel very justified in all the crap I put up with from people who got their news from the MSM. I am even more steadfast in my beliefs. November or bust. Keep working hard.

I'm not going to crack a beer. I DID however, crack a Diet Rite Pure Zero. And I ate two small pizzas.

As it happens, I'm having surgery Monday 11am and have to do the "nothing to eat or drink after midnight."

So here I sit, awake when I would normally never be, and had to pause in the middle of my first pizza and try to cry quietly enough to avoid waking up my wife.

So even though I'm faced with hernia surgery in about twelve hours, I could not possibly be happier.

I really love you guys. And of course, RON PAUL.

Poll results. Mull over that for a second.

Poll results don't equal liberty. Whilst being extremely pleased and as always optimistic, this is hardly the 'water shed moment of non-denial'. We're still very far from the end goal (you know a FREE SOCIETY), the end goal isn't getting Ron elected, that is merely a path.

All the problems in the world don't simply disappear when/if he does.

Some perspective folks. "Why?" Because last time those that put everything into thinking "this is it", are the FIRST ONES TO BAIL come hard times.

Change "in spite of" to "because of" and I think you've hit the nail on the head.

The System & its lackeys (the talk-radio blowhards, the neo-con rags, the MSM talking heads, etc.) have pulled out all their standard, tried-and-true tricks & techniques.
And if Ron Paul were a standard, garden-variety establishment hack politician, he'd've been down for the count a long time ago.

But there is nothing standard, garden-variety, establishment or hackish about Ron Paul.
With every one of the System's dirty deeds, people notice this more & more. And they LIKE it!
Everything the System does to undermine Paul serves only enhance & emphasize his credibility & attractiveness.

I wonder - will the MSM ever realize that it's attempts to marginalize Paul only produce the opposite effect?
I wonder - will braying jackasses like Levin or Limbaugh ever realize that they are only making themselves look like fools - or that they are only making Paul look even better by comparison?

Probably not. And that might not be such an unmitigatedly bad thing.
