    I am constantly amazed at how traditional media outlets cite inaccurate stories as sources. You raise over 4 mm and the washington post cites an article about bot supporters. I’d love to see a spam bot give another candidate the same amount of money.

    Its funny how history repeats itself. Every movement that has actually meant anything has been grassroots, it’s the way of a free society. Eventually the powers infiltrate and corrupt the movement, slowly use it for their own platforms, systematically strip away its original foundation, before our eyes. In the end we must rise up again, till soil and lay seeds for a new movement, the same old good ideals for the betterment of mankind. And this too will one day be corrupted. But, it matters that we try, and Ron Paul represents what we feel inside, an innate instinct draws us towards his fundamental truths. The main stream brainwashes us with cynical questions “why does the internet support him?” Why, we in the know have the answer, it is that we have access to truth via the information super highway. I say to them this, “in the end Ron Paul may be a dream, but I would rather lose on conviction then win in compromise.”

    I congratulate the Congressman on his advances of late. But I’m afraid the record of a single day fundraiser is held by Mitt Romney. There are incorrect reports going around that he only raised $3.1M on Jan. 8 but the actual total is $6.5M on January 8th.

    The total actually passed 4.3 million. I think now Ron will finally get the media attention he deserves. Some mainstream media have already begrudgingly accepted that he is a true mainstream candidate (Tier 1 if you will) but the pundits are still out to snuff his campaign. We all need to try as hard as we can to help him out.

  12. Wanna hear a joke? Ron Paul. Says:

    1. Eliminating public institutions of higher learning by privatizing the entire system, stubbornly voting against all measures to increase public funding of universities.
    ————
    2. Destroying free public education at all levels K-12 and beyond (i.e. abolish the dept. of education, arguing that that all education should be a privately-owned venture, advocating home-schooling, opposing all public spending initiatives, eroding funding by eliminating taxes on the wealthy). Ron Paul believes that education should be treated as any other commodity, like an iPhone, and purchased only if you have enough money to afford it. On his view, it is neither a social good nor a right that any fair or just society should try to ensure and nurture. Your parents don’t earn enough to pay out of pocket for your schooling? Ron Paul says ‘tough luck.’
    ————
    3. Staunchly opposing Universal Health Care and in favor of further privatizing a putrid for-profit system that rakes in billions in returns for its ownership while close to 50 million Americans are uninsured (as opposed to ZERO in Canada) and those that are insured get screwed, dropped or drowned in extremely costly co-pays and premiums. Ron Paul argues that if we’d just give the private insurance corporations more ‘freedom’, only then could they show their truly amicable intentions and the whole situation would be puppy-dogs and ice-cream. Remember: markets and deregulation solve all problems, democratic government creates them.
    ————
    4. Worsening the student debt crisis by further gutting (I say ‘further gutting’ because Bush and his GOP congress made putative cuts in 2005) programs like Pell Grants and Stafford Loans (put in place by LBJ) and giving even more of the student loan system over to a (corrupt, as we’ve seen from recent revelations in NY) billion-dollar private racket. Ron Paul thinks we should slash all of it and only have unregulated private lenders who skim profits from college students’ inability to afford high-priced tuition. Remember, education isn’t a public good or a social imperative, its should be thought of as a mundane commodity (like frosted wheats) according to libertarians.
    ————
    5. Destroying the environment: in the 109th Congress alone, he voted to allow drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, to shield oil companies from MTBE contamination lawsuits, against increasing gas mileage standards, to allow new offshore drilling, and to stop making oil companies pay royalties to the government for drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
    ————
    6. Destroying the progressive income tax (reverting to the regressive system in place during the Gilded Age), letting the rich get out of paying their fair share and depleting funding for social goods. On Ron Paul’s view, it’s ‘communistic and against liberty’ for Bill Gates to be expected to pay higher taxes than working-class single mothers.
    ————
    7. Making racist remarks such as “If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.” Paul was also part of a racist newsletter which made statements like, “only about 5% of blacks have sensible political opinions” and “I think we can safely assume that 95% of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”
    ————
    8. Supporting right-wing anti-choice laws and stripping women of reproductive rights. Ron Paul preaches a good deal about ‘letting the states decide’ on abortion, however, he has attempted to ban abortion at the federal level (Sanctity of Life Act). Furthermore, ’states rights’ on the abortion issue is nothing other than a smokescreen for weakening legal and safe access to abortion.
    ————
    9. Opposing Church-State Separation: From keeping “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance to co-sponsoring the school prayer amendment to keeping the Ten Commandments on a courthouse lawn, this “strict constitutionalist” isn’t a big fan of the Constitutionally-mandated separation of church and state. He will tow the ’states rights’ line here as well, but make no mistake about his support for allowing religious conservatives to demolish state/church separation (Read the bill he sponsored, the We The People Act).
    ————
    10. Supports the repeal of public programming like NPR, PBS and the National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities.
    ————
    11. Supporting right-wing anti-immigration legislation. Opposes building a wall, but only because that would require ‘big government’, otherwise presumably erecting a wall would be a great idea for this nativist.
    ————
    12. Opposing worker’s rights and virulently against workers organizing themselves against exploitative employers (has consistently voted against Employee Free Choice Act.) Note also that Ron Paul’s politics view workers as commodities, not human beings who depend on the wages they earn from their labor to live on. According to free-market orthodoxy, labor laws establishing 40 hr work weeks and workdays, protections for workers, unionization, etc are all “rigidities” which disrupt a firm’s ability to maximize profits most effectively. If it weren’t for regulation of business we wouldn’t have labor laws prohibiting unsafe work environments and child labor… of course these things were both popular during Ron Paul’s favored period of American history: The Gilded Age.
    ————
    13. Fervently opposes raising the minimum wage, in favor of abolishing the minimum wage altogether (a standard libertarian belief.) Let me repeat this one more time: RON PAUL THINKS WE SHOULD ABOLISH THE MINIMUM WAGE ALTOGETHER. Remember, according to this logic we need to let businesses push wages as low as they want because to do otherwise is for democracy to lay its dirty hands on the immaculate ‘free market’. The minimum wage, according to libertarians, forbids greedy employers from pushing wages low enough that they can take on more laborers without sharing any of the proportion of profits funneled straight to the top… thus their argument is that the minimum wage ’causes’ unemployment (its unclear what good full employment is if the jobs being created pay poverty wages). However, the fact of the matter is that NO hard-working human being EVER deserves to work 40 hours a week for a pay check that cannot meet their most basic needs. Ron Paul opposes the minimum wage because it doesn’t allow profit-hungry businesses to make wages LOW ENOUGH. Talk about having the wrong priorities. This should come as no surprise since just about all of Ron Paul’s politics rest on a fundamental preference for the good of business over the good of society.
    ————
    14. Repealing Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and every other social program put in place since the New Deal.
    ————
    15. Being content with genocide in Sudan and enabling the perpetuation of atrocities. Ron Paul voted against a bill that would have required the Federal Government to divest from corporations doing business with mass murders in Sudan. Instead of making a statement against nihilistic profit-obsessed corporations, RP preferred a masturbatory “No” vote demonstrating his isolationist and anarcho-capitalist ’street cred’.
    ————
    16. etc…

    Yes, Ron Paul is against the Iraq War, and so are Pat Buchanan and David Duke. The fact that he is against the Iraq war alone isn’t enough to actually make the guy worth a second look. He’s also not the only person running for president who is advocating withdrawal (Kucinich (D) and Gravel (D), both of whom also have no chance of receiving a nomination, both advocate immediate withdrawal.) His non-interventionist position on Iraq cannot be a compelling reason to suspend judgment about the lunacy of his other positions.

    “But he’s consistent throughout his whole career!” They will say. Yes, we agree, but since when is being consistently wrong about everything that matters a good thing?
    ———-
    According to most major polls, Ron is pulling either ” - ” or “1-2%” among Republicans.

    As a Congressman, Ron Paul (R-TX) has voted with his party nearly 80% of the time, which places him firmly within the bounds of a “rank-and-file-Republican”.
