    Who approached Ron Paul...

    Who approached him in the first place to run for president?

    I know he said he got together with a think tank type group of people and then tried to see how his ideals would fair in the election. Anyone know?

    Ken Snyder is what I remember him saying.
    Happy moments, PRAISE GOD.
    Difficult moments, SEEK GOD.
    Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD.
    Painful moments, TRUST GOD.
    Every moment, THANK GOD.

    I really don't remember for sure anymore, but I thought it was Aaron Russo.
    In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes.

    I think I heard him say his family convinced him but that might have included close friends like Kent.

    Thanks. heard a conspiracy theory the other day that had the thought that ron paul was a way for the NWO to see who would be most likely to stand up against there cause. I thought it was rediculous since he is so passionate, and has always been this way. But then i thought later after the argument, who really approached him to run, and what were there intentions. Now that i haver read about kent snyder though there is no doubt this is a bogus theory. thanks.

    NWO propping up Ron Paul seems like an illogical idea to me. before RP there were small "tribes" of freedom orginizations, unting them and exposing millions to an anti-NWO agenda seems quite counter-productive to me

    It was Kent who was the leading factor in getting Paul to run for office. All others mentioned here helped also, Alex Jones, Aaron Russo, Paul's family, Lew Rockwell and all of the people who helped raise hundreds of thousands for Paul's exploratory committee.

    The rest is history.
