The End...And the Beginning

Whoa! What a year this has been. And what achievements we have had. If I may quote Trotsky of all people, this Revolution is permanent. It will not end at the Republican convention. It will not end in November. It will not end until we have won the great battle on which we have embarked. Not because of me, but because of you. Millions of Americans -- and friends in many other countries -- have dedicated themselves to the principles of liberty: to free enterprise, limited government, sound money, no income tax, and peace. We will not falter so long as there is one restriction on our persons, our property, our civil liberties. How much I owe you. I can never possibly repay your generous donations, hard work, whole-hearted dedication and love of freedom. How blessed I am to be associated with you. Carol, of course, sends her love as well.

Let me tell you my thoughts. With Romney gone, the chances of a brokered convention are nearly zero. But that does not affect my determination to fight on, in every caucus and primary remaining, and at the convention for our ideas, with just as many delegates as I can get. But with so many primaries and caucuses now over, we do not now need so big a national campaign staff, and so I am making it leaner and tighter. Of course, I am committed to fighting for our ideas within the Republican party, so there will be no third party run. I do not denigrate third parties -- just the opposite, and I have long worked to remove the ballot-access restrictions on them. But I am a Republican, and I will remain a Republican.

I also have another priority. I have constituents in my home district that I must serve. I cannot and will not let them down. And I have another battle I must face here as well. If I were to lose the primary for my congressional seat, all our opponents would react with glee, and pretend it was a rejection of our ideas. I cannot and will not let that happen. In the presidential race and the congressional race, I need your support, as always. And I have plans to continue fighting for our ideas in politics and education that I will share with you when I can, for I will need you at my side. In the meantime, onward and upward! The neocons, the warmongers, the socialists, the advocates of inflation will be hearing much from you and me.

Sincerely,
Ron


Sincere thanks are owed to Congressman Paul for his efforts, as well as the dramatic ongoing effect that his ideas - limited government, sound money, low taxes, wars only as decreed by the Constitution - will have in the aftermath of the coming storm.

But understand that despite their superficial differences, John McCain, Barack Obama, and the Hildebeest are cut from the same statist cloth - as are far too many members of both Congressional houses and the Federal judiciary. Every single one of these control junkies believes that government - not free individuals acting independently - is the answer to virtually any question.

And guns? Well, just extrapolate from this discussion of a VPC propaganda piece posted by Tam re "intermediate sniper rifles" to get an idea what we will see after the enactment of AWB 2.

Get ready.

Get set.

Go.

Tempus fugit.

Things being what they are, let's not forget to support the Good Doctor in his congressional re-election bid. How may real friends in congress do you think we have? We have to find a way to continue to send a message to the other congress critters that they can understand. I want them to be jealous of Dr. Paul's bank account. The only two things that they really are interested in is money and getting re-elected.

The message is that small "r" republicans are willing to financially support candidates who support and protect the US Constitution, as written.
Maybe someday, we won't have to choose between the lesser of two weasels.
