My name is Vijay Boyapati, I'm Director of Operation Live Free or Die ( http://operationlivefreeordie.com/). Some of you may remember me from the interview with Dr Paul at Google (skip to 42:31 in the interview - that's me).

I'm writing to you because we're at a turning point in Ron's campaign. In the short history of this Revolution we're in the best position we've ever been in. I don't mean to sound hyperbolic and nor am I exaggerating. Consider these facts:

- Two Republican Presidential candidates (Tancredo and Hunter) have dropped out of the race for want of both money and support. Along with Ron, Tancredo and Hunter were the only candidates truly strong on fixing illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is a huge issue for many voters, and Ron is now the only candidate left with a sterling record on the issue.

- Fred Thompson has had no successes in any states and finished a distant third in South Carolina where he needed a strong result. He has little money and no grassroots support. It's very likely that he'll drop out of the race in the near future.

- While both Huckabee and McCain have won some states, neither has established a clear lead. Neither has significant financial resources, and both will struggle to advertise in the super Tuesday states.

- Rudy Giuliani has chosen a very risky strategy of focusing his efforts on Florida, and has done abysmally in every other state. If he doesn't post a victory in Florida his campaign will essentially be dead.

All the while, Dr Paul has has built an enormous war-chest that will allow him to be among the very few candidates who can afford to advertise in a significant way in the huge super Tuesday states (California, Illinois, New York etc).
http://news.yahoo.com/s/thenation/20080120/cm_thenation/45272954
Further, only a small fraction of the total delegates necessary for the party nomination have been decided. The Republican race is still wide open. We still have a terrific opportunity to shock the media and the country with a strong showing.

This is not the time for despair. It is not the time for complacency. It not the time to abandon the American Revolution. Now is the time for our greatest effort in the glorious cause of human freedom.

So I ask each of you to help us deliver a third huge fund-raising day for Dr Paul on January 21st (this Monday) by promoting this effort as much as possible in your meetup group:

http://freeatlast2008.com

The money we raise will allow Dr Paul to dominate the air-waves in the days leading up to super-Tuesday.

I also ask that you participate in a march in your city and contact your local press to let them know this is part of a national movement. Even if you're only able to march with 5 or 10 fellow supporters, you should do so. Together we'll show that ours is a national movement. That freedom is not forgotten in our beloved Republic. And that we will not stop the fight until our Government acknowledges our urgent entreaty: we demand liberty and justice for all Americans.

sincerely,
Vijay Boyapati, Director of Operation Live Free or Die.

In Dr. Paul's honor tonight I'm watching the movie of his favorite book, Dr. Zhivago. I suggest this to all who love freedom, to remind yourself why it is so precious, and what can happen when you lose it. It's widely available on ThePirateBay.org....

I have actually never watched it. It's like one of those books that are classics that you know you should read but haven't. Same thing.
