    Joe Rogan loves Ron Paul but I don't know if he has "officially" endorsed him

    I really think that Manilow prefers to keep his politics somewhat personal, and I believe he'd be perfectly happy to be invited to play at a Paul White House function.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Have we determined who, if anyone, John Allison (former President of BB&T bank) will be endorsing? Mr. Allison is a major player in the Objectivism community and has a strong record of endorsing proper capitalist politics, as well as superb rational egoist ethics. Furthermore, he is one of the most respected American businessmen alive today, who did everything he could to refuse the bank programs, though he formally resigned after being forced to take the money by the federal government.

    Added Chris Lytle as Celebrity Endorsement.

    Should I add two co-founders of BV Tea Party who endorsed Paul under "Activists" section?

    I am going to add sub-section later after the debate: Prospect endorsements.

    I don't know what qualifies as celebrity and endorsement, but I notice on twitter and facebook ( mostly from retweets from people I follow) a lot of musicians tweeting/posting favorable things.

    The singer from the band " All That Remains" Philip Labonte is wearing a Ron Paul 2012 shirt on his facebook page, which has 31,000 likes. His band has 863,000 likes. Their album from last year reached # 10 on the Billboard Album chart. He was tweeting about Ending the Fed. He also tweets videos and stuff from The Judge.

    One of his tweets was replied to by bodybuilder Layne Norton ( has also tweeted Ron Paul stuff) with "Ron Paul FTW"

    And I knew about that because it was retweeted by Mark Hunter of the band Chimaira ( 83,000 likes on official facebook page, 106,000 on facebook wiki page). He has tweeted a few things about Ron Paul.

    I seem to remember another singer that someone on the forums mentioned. A lot of the old folks didn't know who he was but his band was/is pretty big. Don't think I see him listed- though maybe he didn't give an official "endorsement" or how official it needs to count.

    Its tough to identify confirmed celebrity endorsements, as most tend to be on Twitter and FB rather than being on news/blog/journals when showing that they endorse RP.

    Philip Labonte's Facebook does show he is a firm FB fan, but I can't find a single news article regarding him openly endorsing Paul. As is Layne Norton and Mark Hunter.

    The confirmed endorsements above show that they endorse RP - by news articles and press releases.
