    It seems the growing tensions in Asia (Japan-China sabre-rattling and Indian capital controls) have prompted more great rotation out of fiat and into digital currency as China/India markets open. For the first time ever, the price of one unit of Bitcoin exceeds the price of an ounce of gold...

    Who can forget about this?

    Back in October of 2007, I started getting interested in the presidential candidates. My parents were (real) anti-war Democrats, so I (as a young kid) just got on the Gore and Kerry train. When the Democrats took over the House back in 2007 and nothing changed, I felt pretty betrayed as a supporter of the Democratic Party. I also became interested in civil liberties issues (particularly the Patriot Act). So when early October roles around, I decide to go on Wikipedia and look up the presidential candidates. I ignored Obama and Clinton because by this time I figured they were just shills for the establishment. I saw Kucinich and Gravel, but knew they really had no chance to win. So I went ahead and did something I thought I would never do, see if their was a Republican I could support (I hated Bush, but was pretty pissed off at the Democrats). I see McCain (war mongerer) Giuliana (everything is wrong with him) Romney (just some rich guy) then I finally found him.......

    Mike Huckabee.

    I'm a good Christian, so why not support the Baptist minister? Sure he was for the war in Iraq, but he was a Christian!

    After a few days (if that), I knew something did not feel right with Huckabee, so off to Wikipedia I went. That's when I finally stumbled upon Ron Paul. Holy $#!&. A lightbulb finally went off. This was the man I've been looking for all along. That afternoon there was a CNBC debate in Michigan. It was at this moment I was hooked:

    I still didn't think Ron Paul had much of a chance at that point...until November 6th. I was watching CNN and heard about the previous day's moneybomb. I was extremely impressed by the money raised, and never wanted to miss another one...which is how I ended up on this site a couple of weeks later. The next two months were insane (December 16th moneybomb, the blimp , throwing snowballs at Sean Hannity).

    Didn't expect to reminisce with this thread, but those first two big moneybombs always hold a special place in my heart. It made me want to get involved in the campaign, which lead to an education I never imagined. Thanks RPF!

    [of course it ended up being over 4 million that day....]

    That money bomb is the reason I joined RPF. I became a Ron Paul supporter after watching the CNBC debate the month before, but I had no idea he had so much support until I had CNN on in the background and heard Wolf Blitzer talk about Ron's amazing day. I was shocked because CNN was actually talking about Ron Paul, and that so much money was raised (I think the final total was just short of 5 million). After that, I didn't want to be left out of another great grassroots idea, and that eventually led me to RPF.

    Now I'm getting a bit nostalgic thinking about the great ride during the last 5 years. Here's to 5 more years! ...

    Why does libertarianism feel so 20th century? Imagine you are defending a castle. When the north wall gets assaulted, you defend the north wall.

Your actions are reactive: you defend whatever your opponent chooses to attack. You have little choice....
