Ron Paul campaigns on

dismay swept over the Paul camp after “super tuesday,” but not much suprise – Dr. Paul didn’t win any states. most people figured he had thrown in the towel. he has not. in short, Ron Paul’s not campaigning to “win” the presidency, he’s a realist, remember. while he won’t outright say “we are not going to win,” he knows what is more important is to further his message and empower the people involved in grass roots politics.

prime Paul points:

  • belief in freedom as defined by the constitution
  • a (much) smaller federal government, leave many matters to states
  • a logical foreign policy (pundits say isolationist) that advocates protecting our borders over maintaining the US empire (world police)
  • concentration on a balanced budget, serious crackdown on overspending
  • maintain his seat in the 14th congressional district of TX
  • the presidential campaign will continue until funding drys up (or the GOP selects McCain officially)

message from ron (2/11)

my biggest gripe about Ron is that he doesn’t keep things short – a two edged sword. on the plus side, he is thorough and chalk full of education & experience; even when I do not exactly agree with his stance on a particular point, I find myself nodding, yeah he knows what’s up. (unlike dubya, who knows what’s up… his ass)

on the other hand, we are an ever shorter attention span people – short and sweet wins broader appeal. he speaks quickly, pauses rarely, and guns his points hard – oft times to comedic degree that many consider “crazy.” to those I ask, how bad could it be to have a mad scientist as president versus what we have now?
