    Ron Paul quitting? I think not!!

    "Ron Paul gives up..."

    ...seems to be the topic of discussion over the past two days. This is not true.

    (watch this now - some foul language, but an inspiring clip: http://youtube.com/watch?v=_DN-fhY96p0)

    Right now, the battle is in full rage. Now is not the time to talk of defeat or surrender. There have been numerous events that have happened in just the past few days that give reason to increase our support, and our hope, not consider quitting!.

    Results are coming in, showing a Huckabee victory in Kansas. While Paul did pretty well (over 11%), the bigger news is that this brings us closer to a brokered convention (which Dr. Paul CAN win).

    Yesterday (Friday), Ron Paul spoke at Liberty University to an enthusiastic crowd of thousands. He had them cheering and screaming in support. See it on Youtube.

    On Thursday, Ron Paul spoke at CPAC. Thousands in the conservative group lauded him and overwhelmingly supported him. This can be watched on the internet as well.

    As everybody knows, Romney dropped out. Some see this as a bad thing, as it reduces the chance for a brokered convention. But if you look at the big picture, it is a very good thing (if we still can get a brokered convention). All over our state of Minnesota are reports that Romney supporters stated that they ABSOLUTELY will not support Huckabee or McCain. This means that they'll either refuse to vote, or jump to the Paul camp (many already have).

    And if this same idea transfers to other caucus states like Colorado, Alaska, North Dakota and Maine, where Romney dominated completely and McCain beat Paul by a relatively small margin, then Ron Paul has a great chance of taking the delegates. And if this same idea transfers into other states like Nevada, Montana, and Louisiana, where Paul took a clear second place, trailing only Romney, then this shows that there are a lot of states that the Good Doctor can take!

    Don't weep, or put away your unused slim-jims, or feel depressed. This is time to lift up your heads and shout out loud that we will not lay down our weapons. We will not quietly bow out. We refuse to be the victims of a corrupt, biased system. WE DEMAND THAT OUR VOICES BE HEARD. WE DEMAND THAT THE VOICES OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS BE HEARD. WE DEMAND THAT THE VOICES OF THOUSANDS OF THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR OUR NATION BE HEARD. AND WE DEMAND THAT RON PAUL'S VOICE BE HEARD. AS TODD BEAMER SAID, "LET'S ROLL!"

    Help him win Texas in the Primaries for his Congressional seat on March 4th! If he can win his own district seat=more legitmacy in the eyes of the public. Find the threads here talkinga bout the smear campaign that has started by his opponent Chris Peden and other websites.

    And another ray of light:

    From an LA Times blog:

    Ron Paul reactivates GOP candidacy, vows to fight this year and beyond

    Wait, hold on! Don't toss those Ron Paul signs quite yet.
    The 72-year-old, 10-term Republican congressman has just vowed to continue his current campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. There's been some confusion in recent days since Paul sounded like he was, in effect, withdrawing to refocus his political efforts on a well-funded House primary challenger in his home Texas district near Houston on March 4.
    His vocal online supporters have been less evident, effusive and at times abusive in the last couple of weeks. But now they have reason to refocus themselves too.
    But Wednesday he struck a different note. "I will stay in as long as my supporters want me to," the Texas congressman promised CNN. "And I say as long as the number of volunteers continues to grow, and the money comes in, and there are primaries out there, and they want me to be involved, I am going to stay involved."
    And if, say, there's a scandal or illness among the two remaining Republican candidates ahead of Paul in delegates, he'll be in a pretty good political position for the convention in St. Paul.
    Also, guess what The Times' campaign finance guru Dan Morain just discovered....
    tonight in records of the Federal Election Commission? Of all the Republican candidates left in the field at the end of January none other than Ron Paul had the most cash in hand -- some $6 million. And, like a true conservative, Paul reported not a penny in debt.
    So he's got the money to keep his campaign going, despite being at loggerheads on many issues with fellow GOP candidates. And more funds flowing in each day from his loyal followers, despite being largely ignored by the major media, being barred by Fox News from a debate and receiving short shrift in speaking time there.
    That's not likely to have much impact in the actual GOP voting, which Sen. John McCain has almost wrapped up. Paul has been drawing in the single-digits recently, getting 5% of the Wisconsin vote and 7% in Washington state this week. He did score a couple of second place finishes, including the Nevada and Montana caucuses, and beat Rudy Giuliani in Iowa and Fred Thompson in New Hampshire.
    But his new re-affirmation of an active candidacy will be exciting news for hundreds of thousands of his diverse supporters scattered about the country in some 1,400 meet-up groups that demonstrate for him and raise money in numerous imaginative ways, including hotties 4 Ron Paul pin-up calendars. Their devotion and noticeable online enthusiasm had waned in recent weeks after Paul forced Mitt Romney from the race and then spent more time in his own district.
    Starting last summer the seemingly spontaneous assembling of hundreds of thousands of Paul supporters, many new to politics, has been one of the more remarkable aspects of the current political season.
    Although the major media have consistently treated him as a fringe candidate, Paul has raised more money recently and outlasted several more famous Republican competitors once given a good chance of winning the nomination.
    In December, the Paul campaign broke the online one-day fundraising record by taking in $6 million and made Paul the most successful GOP fundraiser in the fourth quarter with nearly $20 million in donations. And he was the only Republican candidate to increase his take during each quarter of 2007.
    So far this quarter, Paul's website reports in excess of $6 million more in donations, which the candidate said he would use to drive what he called a movement. In the CNN interview he portrayed the movement of Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians disaffected with large government and foreign entanglements as unstoppable, although mathematically the 2008 nomination is beyond their reach. (This part is untrue ? Bill Dodge)
    Paul, a former ob-gyn who recently drew a crowd of 1,400 at North Texas University, said he was overwhelmed by possible congressional candidates who could form a bloc of strict constitutionalists in Congress and carry the movement on beyond the unsuccessful 2008 nomination struggle. But although he refuses to endorse McCain, Paul also continues to reject the possibility of a third-party run.
    Paul said students he talked with "hear other candidates talking change and they know it's the same old stuff over and over again. There's no difference with the other candidates. They know it's going to take time. But as I travel, I find something very significant going on around the country. They know we need to turn this country around."
    "I couldn't stop this movement if I tried," he added.
    Then, noting Fidel Castro stepping down from Cuba's leadership, Paul repeated his call for an end to the U.S. trade embargo on that country. "Fifty years of the embargo haven't worked," he said. "This is a wonderful opportunity to undermine communism."
