Over $1,000,000 raised in seven days
Ron Paul 2008 presidential campaign!
These 3rd Quarter Campaign Contributions Will Make News For Ron Paul
& propel the campaign forward towards the early primary states.
"[I] guess we 'spammed' with our money."
-- Valentine --
We'll await the official FEC (Federal Election Commission) report due out shortly.
In the meantime, let's begin working on the 4th Quarter contributions that will take us to the very doorstep of the first primary races. We'll need TV, radio, direct mail, signs, fliers. We'll need to shuttle Ron Paul and his crew around these United States, and that's expensive.
We'll also need volunteers to walk their neighborhoods informing neighbors of Ron Paul's candidacy. We'll need poll watchers and election judges to oversee a fair and accurate count of the vote. Please do what you can.
Go here to plug in as a volunteer to the Ron Paul for President Campaign!

"Last week, Rush Limbaugh labeled any American soldier who supports an end to the war in Iraq as "phony."1 We challenged Limbaugh through an email campaign to invite VoteVets.org's Jon Soltz to his show and repeat these same insults to an Iraq war veteran's face. Over 10,000 of you responded and emailed Rush -- but to our disappointment, he has refused to respond to our request."
-- General Wesley Clark --
"Maybe Rush Limbaugh hasn't heard, but there's a new sheriff in town - America's troops and veterans, who are not going to sit idle while he and his ilk demean the service of those who oppose the President's failed policy in Iraq. Today, we're unveiling a new television and radio ad, taking Rush head on, for his contention that we're 'phony soldiers.'"
-- Jon Soltz, Iraq War Veteran, Chairman, VoteVets.org --
Rush Limbaugh, I am no 'phoney soldier.'
Stop telling lies about my service.
"Mr. President, you did not listen."
Major General John Batiste, USMC

John Kerry's Police State America
Who are these two men?
Watch as they appear to direct the arrest of a 21-year old journalism student, Andrew Meyer,
asking US Senator John Kerry a very pertinent series of questions.
As this violent civil rights crime is being committed, Kerry dones in an hypnotic fashion from the stage ...
"I think if everyone would just calm down, this situation would resolve itself ...
Unfortunately he's not available to come up here and swear me in as President."
-- Senator John Kerry (Democrat) making jokes as the 21 year old University of Florida student, Andrew Meyer, is being tasered by police for asking Kerry a series of very important but evidently politically incorrect questions --
Express your concerns about this police state behavior in America.

"Last night [2007.11.10] at Book Revue in Huntington, Sean Hannity's program director Phil Boyce (he of Promise Keepers, the wives submit or get hit group of the early 1990s) tried to have me arrested because he didn't like the question he thought I was going to ask Sean Hannity. Boyce called the cops on his cell phone, two policemen showed up, asked me to come with them, and a couple of hundred of Hannity sycophants cheered, clapped, and a few shouted arrest him as I walked toward the bookstore exit at the direction of the police officers. Full details will follow after the flip but the key points to remember are that no personnel of the book store ever asked me to leave while in the store, I behaved superbly and remained calm and cool at all times, and of course I committed no crimes."
Note that in true fashion for the Neo-GOP, this poll has no running total to allow the voter to verify their vote was counted as cast. This is a black-box poll, meaning we must trust the NRSC to count and report the votes as they were actually cast. Ron Paul came in a strong second in the first NRSC poll by a significant margin, but it featured a running total. Let's see how the NRSC reports this one.

Ron Paul WINS Maryland's GOP Straw Poll
Source: Maryland Republican Party
ANNAPOLIS After eleven days of presidential straw poll ballots cast at the Maryland Republican Partys State Fair booth, Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) was announced last night as the winner.
The biggest culprit of fairness is Fox News. They refer to the top 3 candidates almost 5 times more than they refer to any of the other candidates. Mitt Romney was referenced 13,000 times on the FoxNews.com domain while Ron Paul has only been referenced 248 times. So for every 52.4 articles on Mitt Romney, there will only be one article on Ron Paul. That is absurd. On no other news source is the disparity as large as it is on Fox News.
"Sources close to the Ron Paul (R-Tex) presidential campaign point out gleefully that in a single night Ron Paul took in more money ($102,000) than the entire GOP apparatus did with its convoluted 'first ever' straw poll ($97,500) ... Ron Paul ... finished third in the highly restrictive straw poll ... [An unnamed source said,] "The Texas straw poll was structured so that you could only vote if you had been a former GOP delegate. Even rank and file GOP-ers couldn't vote ... But maybe the real vote can be seen by his fund-raising success. He out-raised the entire Texas GOP in a single night. He's one of the hottest politicians in the country going into the upcoming debates on Fox."
41.1% Duncan Hunter (534 votes)
20.5% Fred Thompson (266 votes)
16.17% Ron Paul (217 votes)
06.4% Mike Huckabee (83 votes)
06.0% Rudy Giuliani (78 votes)
04.7% Mitt Romney (61 votes)
02.2% Ray McKinney (28 votes)
0.77% John Cox (10 votes)
0.62% John McCain (8 votes)
0.46% Tom Tancredo (6 votes)

Ron Paul's Straw Poll Results
"Coming off the Iowa Straw Poll, the momentum for the Ron Paul 2008 campaign continues to build. Congressman Ron Paul has finished in the top 5 in 16 of the last 17 straw polls and can claim 1st place victories in New Hampshire, North Carolina, Washington, and Alabama. In comparing results head-to-head, Congressman Paul has blown away most of the field, defeating Rudy Giuliani in 15 of the 17 polls and John McCain in 15 of the 16 polls."
