There is talk that the Republican Party could possibly turn to Ron Paul to be its standard bearer if somehow John McCain melts down come convention time. It is a huge stretch to suggest that the corrupt GOP would even remotely turn to Ron Paul if McCain melted down at the convention. They would never ever nominate Ron Paul. His following and message are a threat to the very existence of the neo-con stranglehold and to the military-industrial-empire it represents. The fact that he is still campaigning in the Republican primaries, commendable as that may be, confirms the zero chance Ron Paul will have of even addressing the GOP convention in any capacity.
Dissension in the seats, turmoil and rumblings on the streets of the St. Paul GOP convention later this summer will be a dramatic backdrop to a freedom movement that is flexing its muscles inside and outside the corrupt GOP and proving to the nation that the freedom movement means business and will go toe-to-toe. To hell with the notion of voting for the lesser of two evils. Don't you want to vote for a candidate on the ballot with a clear conscience? Of course.
There is growing perplexity as to why Ron Paul has decided to not yet 'revise and extend' the message of freedom and liberty and proceed to recruit millions of new converts in the context of a general presidential election by running 3rd Party. He's the freedom movement's rock star. He's got increasing name recognition, he's got 100,000 person volunteer army ready to hit the streets to help spread the freedom message, an Amazon.com best-selling book, and he sits atop a $4 – 6 million campaign war chest that could grow to near $100 million if he simply challenges the soon-to-be annointed freedom destroyers. Perhaps more importantly, the huge lessons learned in the recent 2007 campaign that didn't see hard-hitting Paul campaign ads until late in the campaign season around the time of the CPAC convention. The advertising rates will never be more advantageous for reaching millions and millions in the upcoming general election. We simply cannot take no for an answer! Period!
Never forget this salient fact: It is the Republican Party that left Ron Paul. Ron Paul never changed his views on the economic and social benefits of liberty and freedom and constitutional government. It is the Republican Party that has been for years underway, sailing into the straits of personal corruption and special interest politics. While waging eternal war on our God-given liberties and acting as business agents for the military-industrial-empire, in search of monsters abroad to destroy.
Unfortunately, Paul refuses to confront the dire warnings of the founding fathers who understood the bain and tyranny of entrenched political parties. Have we not seen enough? What more do people want to see? Is the $9 trillion run-up in debt with an empire near collapse along with our freedoms not enough to convince yourself that the Republorats are not worth supporting? The GOP and the Democratic parties have become one corporate special interest party interested in maintaining the military-industrial complex, of which General and President Eisenhower sternly warned against.
While I personally feel we are much closer to being rounded up in FEMA camps well before we get even close to taking over the GOP, the actions to influence and change the party from the grassroots up is commendable and fits into this strategy. Operating in and outside the party will help speed up the collapse of the corrupt old guard that now controls the GOP. Let them fear the freedom movement as we prove our power! We must never refrain from battling them but we must never put all our eggs in one tactic as we have presently. We must get Ron Paul on the 50-state national general election ballot. To hell with McCain and the wars he will wage if elected. He must be denied election in any case.
Ron Paul had to be cajoled and arm-twisted to get in the race in the first place back in early 2007. It must dawn on his supporters across the country to lean hard on Paul now to be on the general election ballot, so that millions more, in the context of a presidential election, will be exposed and awaken to all the freedoms and liberties being stolen. Millions will join the revolution. I repeat, Millions will rally to freedom and liberty's cause. In the months and few short years to come, then what kind of leverage will we be able to exert politically? It will be huge. Huge!
Now is the time to demand Ron Paul be on every ballot in America come November 2008. The Libertarian Convention is 22-26 May in Denver. Now is the time for Ron Paul to put his name in the hat for a sure presidential nomination and have his name placed on every ballot from Hawaii to Maine, Alaska to Florida. Supporters lets inundate Ron Paul and his lovely wife, Carol, with calls and letters urging them to please, for the sake of the republic, to run on the Libertarian Party ticket so the people at least can cast a vote for freedom in good conscience. It's up to all of us to take action and contact Ron Paul! No is not an option.
As supporters of Ron Paul, we must realize he is a national treasure and his singular talents must be utilized, in the context of a general presidential election, to blast away at the edifices of lies, propaganda, and deceit that obscure and obstruct the path back to the republic! Victory in 2008 will come in the form of millions of newly turned-on Americans (and foreigners world-wide, for that matter) who will join us in turning the aircraft carrier of state around in the months and the few short years to come. For we know in our heart or hearts, we do not have much time left to regain this nations's birthright!
Seriously, would the activists of the day have let George Washington or other history making leaders retire to the back bench of the legislature when real leadership was required? Is our country no-less at history's perilous turning point between freedom and fascism? We must have our best man, our best communicator in this presidential battle. The ripple-effect will be much larger and spur a move toward liberty much quicker if Ron Paul is in direct competition.
Either we compete with our best team leader on the field of ideas or we become history's footnote. Never forget, its the message, people! Heed the founders warnings and lets move confidently forward into the warming light of freedom's battle and all that it has to offer the generations to come. The time to act is now!
We cannot take no for an answer, Ron Paul. The founders did not take no for an answer. With a founding father-like figure among us, Ron Paul, and now all of us, we, as an educated citizenry and inheritors of all the freedoms and liberties the founders fought for, the named and the un-named to history, and the lessons and instructions they left us, will you now take no for an answer?
Contact Ron and Carol Paul at the campaign phone number and urge Ron to run on the LP ticket. Tell Ron and Carol, respectfully, how much you love them, but, you will not take no for an answer:
Email the Campaign to urge Ron Paul to run on the Libertarian Party ticket that will result in his name on all 50 state ballots.
Write letters to the Campaign headquarters urging Ron Paul to run on the Libertarian Ticket (Ron's a lifetime member, ya know).
Ron Paul 3461 Washington Blvd., Suite 200, Arlington, VA 22201
Urge your liberty and freedom contacts to call and write Ron Paul and lets get him in this game. The time is now! The watch word is agitate, agitate, agitate. Swear you will not take no for an answer! Because the more millions that will come to our side, the greater the leverage we will have, then we win it all!Tweet
