    Ron Paul is gaining more attention from the media and in order avoid being accused of spamming I will now be confining my posting of articles and information about the Ron Paul for President campaign to this thread.



    I start with an article entitled "Flush With New Millions, Underdog Vies to Compete":


    Flush With New Millions, Underdog Vies to Compete
    By JULIE BOSMAN

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 25 — If media muscle is any measure of a candidate, Representative Ron Paul of Texas is getting ready to flex his.

    In the last two weeks, Mr. Paul — a Republican presidential candidate — has spent nearly a half-million dollars on radio advertisements in four early primary states, the first major media investment of his campaign. On Tuesday night, he will take a seat opposite Jay Leno.

    And on Monday, a campaign spokesman said, he will roll out his first major television advertising campaign, spending $1.1 million on five new commercials to be shown in the New Hampshire market for the next six weeks.

    By Marc Ambinder:

    "For the longest time, many journalists, myself included, did not take Ron Paul seriously. It wasn't that his politics -- a combination of libertarian constitutionalism and social conservatism -- were unusual. It was, principally, that he was anti-war in a party where that view dare not express itself.

    Paul is now emerging as a serious threat in New Hampshire, perhaps not to win it -- although the winner may need only 25% or so -- , but to influence the outcome in a way that reflects his worldview. He will spend most of the $5.3M in his campaign budget on television, mailings and field organizing in the Granite State. There are 450 people in largest Ron Paul Meetup group, and they're canvassing in Claremont and dropping lit in Manchester this weekend.

    Who likes Paul? His aides say there is no single demographic. Many are former members of the Buchanan Brigade, suddenly re-energized by Paul's anti-interventionism and strong border stances. Others seem to be casual libertarians who never really found a sympathetic voice in any of the other presidential candidates. Yet others are self-described constitutionalists. They blame the monetary system for the credit crunch and for economic dislocation. Monetary policy has been Paul's other big bugbear."

    Piece of cake

    Ron Paul may lead among certain-aged voters against Hillary but nothing else suggests that he would have a chance whatsoever.

    Ron Paul's first job is to deal with another, much-tougher lady--Phyllis Schafly and her National Republican Coalition For Life organization. Many Republicans are experienced in rejecting ideas from the Rockefeller wing about dropping the plank for a constitutional amendment to protect life. Ron Paul does not have nearly the political muscle as some of the liberal Republicans and he will be a piece of cake for Phyllis Schafly.

    Well...

    I ran a search for all posts containing "Rush Limbaugh" by "carpro and found 19 threads. When I searched for posts containing "Limbaugh" by carpro I found 27 threads.

    Also, for someone complaining about Ron Paul threads, you do seem to enjoy participating in them. Search Forums found 49 cases of your doing just that.

    :laugh:

    I see you have at least partially mastered the forum search feature. Since you're so interest in my posting history, maybe you can tell us how many threads I started with Rush Limbaugh as the main topic. I look forward to your answer.;)

    I will continue to participate in Ron Paul threads when it suits me. I like to give KenH a hard time. Maybe the spamming of the board with Paul propaganda will slow down or hopefully be placed in Ken's continuing thread.

    This doen't apply to KenH. He's been here a long time, but it does seem we have a number of new members who just happen to be Paul supporters and start a lot of threads that focus on him. I wonder how that happened...

    Pop star John Mayer endorses Paul. The bluesy rocker will play a Paul Rally Nov. 10th. Mayer challenges Paul's opponents to, "read the Constitution!"

    Robert Novak says he's, "fondest," of Ron Paul. Novak's remarks tick off liberals here.

    I like Mayer's music. He has espoused liberalism in the past, as have some other supporters of Paul (and Paul himself). Take that for whatever you wish.

    Last Zogby poll I saw had Paul dead last. Paul's lip-service to the constitution is needed. Now, it should be heeded by Paul and others. Would to God we had more who observed the Constitution.
