    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    Here is an excerpt from his wiki:
    Wead was an active behind-the-scenes player in the 2000 United States presidential election, receiving some credit for George W. Bush's victory in the Iowa straw polls of 1999.[9] From 1984 to 2000, he served as an on-and-off adviser to both presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.

    Time magazine called Wead an insider in the Bush family orbit and "the man who coined the phrase 'Compassionate Conservative.'"[10] George W. Bush first picked up the term “Compassionate Conservative” in 1987 from Wead.[11] In 1979, Wead gave a speech titled “The Compassionate Conservative” at the annual Charity Awards Dinner, and tapes of the speech were later sold across the country at corporate seminars.[12]

    In March 2008, Wead helped create the website Religious Freedom In America,[13] focusing on government threats to religious observance

    Not really. I asked the source to post the news to RPF themselves, but they insisted I do it. It was an odd request, but I guarantee they are who they say they are and it is someone everyone knows and trusts.

    yeah, also IIRC he was instrumental in Dr. Paul receiving that big charity award somewhat recently.

    In 1992, Wead was the Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in Arizona's 6th Congressional District. Despite having lived in Arizona for only a few years, Wead won the Republican nomination after championing a tax limitation initiative and airing a television commercial featuring praise by former President Ronald Reagan for his humanitarian efforts.[6] However, the Democratic nominee, Karan English, received the endorsement of former Arizona Senator and 1964 Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater who thought Wead was out of touch with Arizona because of his relatively brief residency in the state — two years to English's 22. Wead countered that Goldwater's support of abortion rights spurred the unexpected crossing of party lines.[7] He ended up losing in the general election to English.

    The most recent posts on his blog are a good read.

    Most of all, Ron Paul still remembers the U.S. constitution and he knows it by heart. And believes in it. You can’t say that about Barack Obama or any of the other Republican candidates. There are the candidates and then there is Ron Paul. He stands alone.

    I hope your credible source is correct.

    He is a blogger who wrote a series of articles on why Ron should run for president which are stickied in the forum. We like them. He was a 'shill' for George W Bush, helping him prepare for debates. He helped shape the message of the campaign. And he is a true believer, he backs Ron.

    We'll all have a good laugh when they let me reveal who they are. I've given you clues.

    I actually heard the news from someone else earlier in the week. They didn't say one way or the other whether I should share the information, so I kept it to myself.
