      Some of you may know that Ron Paul and I exchange e-mails every once in a while. We talk about various things, including his future. He has told me that I can share with everyone that he is thinking about running for President again in 2016.

      From a press release:

      True leaders are a rarity in Washington, D.C. But in 2014, South Carolina voters have a chance to send a true champion for our Constitution to the U.S. Senate.

      Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund is proud to announce our support Lee Bright to be the next U.S. Senator from South Carolina. His record of fighting for our gun rights puts him among the top pro-gun legislators in the entire country.

      Any pro-Second Amendment South Carolinian should support Lee Bright to be their next U.S. Senator. He’s truly something special.

      Do you want to get rid of Lindsey Graham?

      Here are the details:

      Dear Liberty Supporter,

      “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?

      “Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

      Those were the fiery words, spoken by patriot Patrick Henry 239 years go today, that galvanized American patriots and help kickstart a revolution.

      Sadly, there’s no denying many of the freedoms our Founders fought for are being tossed aside today.

      Sen. Paul’s Statement on Situation in Ukraine

      WASHINGTON, D.C. –
      Sen. Rand Paul today issued the following statement in reaction to the developing situation in Ukraine:

      “We live in an interconnected world and the United States has a vital role in the stability of that world. The United States should make it abundantly clear to Russia that we expect them to honor the December 1994 Budapest Memorandum, in which the U.S., Russia, and the United Kingdom reaffirmed their commitment ‘to respect the independence and sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine.’ Russia should also be reminded that stability and territorial integrity go hand in hand with prosperity. Economic incentives align against Russian military involvement in Ukraine. Russia, which has begun to experience the benefits of expanded trade with World Trade Organization accession, should think long and hard about honoring their treaty obligations and fostering the stability that creates prosperity for its citizens. Most importantly, Russian intervention in Ukraine would be dangerous for both nations, and for the rest of the world,” Sen. Paul said.

      Six days.

      Whether or not U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham ignores you and me in the U.S. Senate for another six years could come down to the next six days.

      In fact, this could be THE most important time period of this entire campaign for the U.S. Senate.

      As I’ve said from the beginning of this campaign, the first challenger to reach 25% in the polls WILL be the candidate to take on Lindsey Graham.

      I’ll explain why I’ve made that prediction shortly . . .

      From an e-mail announcement:

      Today, Young Americans for Liberty Action -- our 501c4 political arm -- is launchingLibertyAction.com and endorsing five new candidates running for Congress.

      But before you visit the website and spoil the surprise, let me explain a few key points.

      First of all, this is the opening round of the 2014 election season for YAL -- and I'm confident we have found the future generation of strict constitutionalists to elect to Congress. With your help, we will be adding young, dynamic, and most importantly, principled congressmen to the Congressional Liberty Caucus on Capitol Hill. Candidates in the same mold of Sen. Rand Paul, Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Justin Amash, and Rep. Thomas Massie.

      Second, LibertyAction.com is a new project and PAC for libertarian, conservative, and constitutional donors who want to support principled, pro-liberty candidates who can win on Election Day.

      Through this website, you can quickly donate to multiple candidates through one easy transaction. And best of all, 100% of your donations through LibertyAction.com go directly to the candidates you are supporting. We will cover the credit card processing fees!

      If we can bundle and crowd-source $10,000, $25,000, $50,000 or more for each candidate this election cycle, you and I could be the difference between victory or defeat.

      So I encourage you to visit our new website LibertyAction.com, select ALL the candidates, and make a donation to kickoff this election year.

      We are revolutionizing how our movement supports principled, pro-liberty candidates who can win on Election Day.

      I am very excited about the impact you and I can make, especially in these upcoming primaries. I will be sending you much more information and endorsing even more candidates in the near future.

      For now, please check out LibertyAction.com, and support these five endorsed candidates today!

      For liberty,

      from a press release:
      Bright Emerges as Top Lindsey Graham Threat
      Graham’s Numbers Continue to Tank: Well Below 50%

      Upstate Senator Lee Bright’s campaign appears to be gaining steam while incumbent Lindsey Graham looks to be in deep trouble according to a recent poll of likely Republican Primary voters in South Carolina.

      The big picture results of the survey show that South Carolinians are deeply dissatisfied with Graham,Bright is dominating the crowded field of challengers, and both trends seem to be building.

      Only 38% of voters said that Graham deserves to be re-elected, while 49% said it’s time for someone new. That someone would appear to be Bright, who polled more than Nancy Mace, Bill Connor and Richard Cash combined, with over 17%.

      “We are very excited about this news,but I can’t say that we’re surprised” said Senator Bright in regards to recent poll conducted by Wenzel Strategies.

      “We’ve dominated the straw polls throughout the state, and we’ve earned some very prominent endorsements, including the endorsements we crave the most – those of South Carolina’s conservatives.

      “Meanwhile, Lindsey Graham continues to do little or nothing to stop the Obama-Reid-Schumer-Pelosi agenda– and that’s an agenda that South Carolinians want stopped.”

      Bright went on to say that “for a wealthy long-time incumbent, who seems to be on cable news all day everyday, to be below 40% this early in the process is stunning. It’s not like Lindsey Graham can do anything to improve his standing. We know who he is now.”

      Bright added of Graham’s numbers, his lowest polls ever, that “voters understand that he’s a creature of Washington, and that the swamp needs to be drained of Big Government apologists in both parties.

      “With the help of conservatives and Tea Party activists across South Carolina, we’re going to retire him in the Spring.

      “I have every intention of joining Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul to put the brakes on this ever-expanding government – not compromising with Barack Obama as Lindsey Graham has done.

      Numbers don’t lie. Politicians can brag about money all they want. And I can promise you we’ll be right with them in the end. But they count votes at the ballot box, not dollars. And polls show it’s my campaign that has what it takes to defeat Lindsey Graham.
