Rand Paul: Is the Revolution Over or Just Beginning? (3/10/08)

by Rand Paul, MD | March 8, 2008

Reports that Ron Paul has quit the Presidential Race remind me of Mark Twain's famous "Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." The Ron Paul Presidential campaign continues, albeit at a different pace.

What does that mean?

Ron Paul will continue to contest the remaining primaries. Ron Paul's name will be on all the remaining state ballots. Ron Paul volunteers are encouraged to become precinct captains, delegates to state and national conventions, and to try pass Constitutional proposals to each state's Republican platform.

For example, volunteers in each state should try to attach amendments such as the following: Republicans believe that war should only be fought after a proper Declaration of War by Congress. Another possible platform idea is that: Republican Congressmen are expected to vote against any federal budget, Republican or Democrat, that is not balanced.

Want to have some fun? Just imagine the fun when the debate begins on these ideas.

Is Ron Paul still campaigning for president? Yes. Ron Paul has tentative plans to campaign in Pennsylvania and Kentucky. Ron Paul will also likely appear in other states that have remaining primaries.

The press is reporting that Ron Paul has quit the race. This is not true. Ron Paul's video simply acknowledges that the campaign will continue but will also transform into additional activities such as education and supporting other candidates. In Kentucky we just held precinct conventions and Ron Paul Republicans won hundreds of precinct captains. In Kyle, Texas, Craig Young upset the establishment choice for Republican County Chairman.

The Ron Paul Revolution lives on! Victory comes in many forms. Help shape what the Ron Paul revolution becomes.

Op-ed from Dr. Paul on Forbes.com (3/4/08)

Forbes.com is featuring an op-ed from Ron Paul today in their "Candidate Central" section and a link to it on their "Trailwatch" blog.  Here's a glimpse of what Dr. Paul had to say:

"America became the greatest, most prosperous nation in history through low taxes, constitutionally limited government, personal freedom, and a belief in sound money. I decided to run for president because I am deeply concerned that the conservative movement has drifted away from these principles that we once so fiercely defended. Deficits have exploded, entitlements are out of control, and our personal liberties are threatened like never before…

"As I said this past November to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, “We’re indeed between a rock and a hard place and we don’t talk about how we got here; we talk about how we are going to patch it up.” The “solutions” proposed so far - stimulus packages, bailouts, and interest rate cuts - just amount to printing more money, which will lead to greater currency devaluation, contribute to the rising costs of living, and further squeeze the middle class and our senior citizens."

You can read the entire op-ed here.

The Revolution in Colorado (3/4/08)

The latest word from a Ron Paul supporter in Colorado:

"My fellow Ron-Paul-supporting precinct caucus winners from Denver County and I went to the County Convention on Saturday morning and all voted for one another and, as a result, most of us were elected to the state convention and some of us may have been elected to the District conventions (those results have not yet been tabulated).  Delegates to the RNC are selected at those two upcoming conventions.

"In addition, a series of eight resolutions excerpted directly out of Ron Paul’s platform were passed overwhelmingly by the committee of the whole and, of the resolutions that were not Ron Paul resolutions, the Ron Paul supporters controlled the vote and voted them up and down as philosophically appropriate."

Congress Goes AWOL

February 9th, 2004


Controversy is brewing in Washington over intelligence failures underlying the administration’s claims about the threat posed by Iraq. The president has appointed a new commission to study the issue, but its true mission may be political damage control for the November election.

Fixing What's Wrong With Iraq

May 21, 2007

Many of my colleagues, faced with the reality that the war in Iraq is not going well, line up to place all the blame on the president. The president “mismanaged” the war, they say. “It’s all the president’s fault,” they claim. In reality, much of the blame should rest with Congress, which shirked its constitutional duty to declare war and instead told the president to decide for himself ... (Read More...)

On The Issues

Iraq

The United States invaded Iraq under false pretenses without a constitutionally-required declaration of war. Our Founders understood that how we go to war is as important as when we go to war, which is why they vested the power to declare war in the Legislative Branch. (Read More...)

National Defense

A defense policy designed to keep Americans safe should start with the idea that we must secure our borders from those who would cross them to do us harm. (Read More...)
