Unstoppable Momentum: The Ron Paul Revolution Continues

Ron Paul achieved a huge victory in South Carolina, a state that showed itself increasingly receptive to his message of

  • cutting the budget by $1 trillion the first year,
  • auditing the Federal Reserve,
  • saving the dollar,
  • ending the income tax,
  • preserving Social Security,
  • guaranteeing a strong national defense,
  • working towards a sensible, pro-American foreign policy and
  • reminding the federal government of its defining purpose: to protect our liberties.

Ron Paul’s Surge: Faster than Ever Before

Thanks to the hard work of his campaign staff, grassroots supporters, donors and SuperPACs, Ron Paul managed to more than triple (+259%) his percentage share of votes cast in South Carolina, from 3.62% in 2008 to 13% in 2012:


The number of votes cast for Ron Paul ballooned as well, more than quadrupling (+383%) from 16,155 votes in 2008 to 78,093 votes in 2012:


These results make South Carolina the state where Ron Paul has achieved the biggest rate of growth for his campaign so far.

In Iowa, Ron Paul had increased his percentage from 9.93% to 21.45% (+116%) and his number of votes from 11,841 to 26,219 (+121%).

In New Hampshire he had increased his percentage from 7.8% to 22.91% (+194%) and his number of votes from 18,308 votes to 56,872 (+211%):



Ready for more growth? The rate of growth itself keeps growing too.

Compared to the 2008 campaign, the percentage of votes cast for Ron Paul grew by 116% in Iowa, by 195% in New Hampshire and by 259% in South Carolina.

Ron Paul’s number of votes grew by 121% in Iowa, by 211% in New Hampshire and by 383% in South Carolina:


Victory Is Within Reach

Ron Paul’s message of freedom, his ardent base of supporters and his continuing surge even in states like South Carolina put him firmly on the track to winning the nomination.

The next stop is Florida on Jan. 31, where Ron Paul received 3.23% or 62,887 votes in 2008. Could there be a surprise brewing in the Sunshine State?

The weeks after Florida bring Ron Paul to three caucus states where he is expected to do very well: Nevada (13.73% in 2008), Colorado (8.42% in 2008) and Washington state (21.64% in 2008).

Let the marathon begin!

    But I;m not here to give a history lesson just to tell you that the modern Jews are posers they are not true Israelite’s.They are Zionist rulers who think we should all be their slaves. And that is what they have been working to bring about by infiltrating our great nation and taking over its monetary system. There have been nothing but traitorous leadership in this country since Roosevelt and people like Kennedy who saw this and wanted to end it were killed. Just as Ron Paul will be killed if elected. But they will make sure that don’t happen cause they have you poor ass sheeple buying all their media bullshit. Sorry for the harsh language but it is necessarily a needed addition to my language to get your attention. But what good will this do ? None. As it is in Gods interest to destroy America for turning our backs on him and letting sin rule the day here. So goodbye America judgement has been set upon you/


  • ThomasSchang

    i am not antisemitic but why is it Jews are always being framed? What do you actually think that they do no wrong? In my opinion these so called Jews in modern Israel are some of the most subversive and lying people on earth. Israel is Gods jewel but the pretenders there now are not anything even resembling an Israelite. So God has no place in his heart for these usurpers. You can’t trace there line back to Abraham neither can they. I’ve got more true Israelite in me than all of them..People are so ignorant they have no clue what the hell their talking about. Like being a Jew is a race of people. Jew is not a race its a religious belief system. Abraham was not a Jew but a Hebrew from Hebron. There wasn’t a Jew on the planet until its was used as a derogatory term to describe a people with very strange religious beliefs and practices of animal sacrifice. And by that time the law of Moses had been so perverted from the Babylonian captivity that they had no more clue who they were. Read it your self in the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, 1st kings, 2nd kings . There were twelve tribes of Israel and as Joseph gave up his identity to two others there were thirteen. The northern tribes were dispersed forever. Due to Solomon’s sin and the leaders following the northern tribes that were all evil after that not one good king led the northern tribes. So God sent them out of Israel forever. Into Assyrian captivity.

    The voting-machines are fixed, don’t ever think that that is not the case!!! Fixed fixed fixed Your whole country is fixed Every country in the world is fixed Wake up!! Let’s do something about it before it’s too late….. Ron Paul is the best answer for now and from there we can start (a worldwide) revolution… Without violence…. History has pointed out all the time that a violent revolution will eventually lead to another one… Film the people who voted Ron Paul after they just voted for him in the machines and ask them to do it again on film (my guess would be that Ron Paul voters are not unwilling to do this) At least you have a record of (the minimum number) of votes for the honest man and you can always go to court if they don’t match with the official votes for him… We MUST make an effort to change the pathetic stuff which is going on in the world right now America is a good place to start Willy-Nilly Good luck there in Uncle Sam’s country haha Love, peace and most of all freedom and non-tension from Bommie (born in Holland, living in China)

  • JudithCoreyMD

    Please go to Ron Paul 2012 on Facebook and see an editorial from an ISRAELI Ron Paul supporter…He’s absolutely right on Israel and Iran. Its the bleeding wails of vote-panderers who don’t give a crap about Israel that keep kicking that ‘He doesn’t support Israel’ trash around….spread it around.

  • JudithCoreyMD

    I posted an editorial from an ISRAELI supporting Ron Paul’s position on the Ron Paul 2012 Facebook page!!! He’s absolutely right about his stance on Israel, and there are Israelis who support him – check it out.

  • Errassic Park

    Common ppl. Ron Paul is still the underdog for liberty and freedom. What happened to all the likes?? I wanna see a couple thousand likes again. I want the people to get out of the house and inform, petition, anything. Educate the people. The race is not over

  • Gary Riddley

    Newt, please what a loser

  • Tricia Rawson Buster

    I hope so too.. in the debates ron paul needs to dumb down his message. The average person cant follow . 🙂

  • hippydog


    interesting article.. and i have to say it makes me ask the same question, Why?

    • hippydog

      anyone? no answer or explanation?
      Why was the military vote so low?

      • Stevessanity

        @hippydog maybe the higher up’s in the military are telling ppl crazy stuff

      • @hippydog The military supports Ron Paul, but the military industrial complex (that sells products and support services for wars) doesn’t.

        • hippydog

          sorry.. your reply makes no sense..
          South Carolina has a large population of active military, and NOT just people from the “industrial complex”
          If the military supports Paul then this should have been reflected somewhat in the vote.. yet it did not show up, what so ever..
          The active duty military voted just like everybody else..
          I would appreciate a REAL answer please, and not a “this is what is written on pauls website”

        • RickyPhilipChuter

          @[email protected] The answer is that Ron Paul recieved 4 times the amount of votes this year as he did in 2008. The military vote would account for much of this.

        • hippydog

          I thought the same thing, but I actually looked at the results from each area.. (thinking the authour of the piece was just being biased.)
          AGAIN.. The military areas (where they would most likely vote) did NOT show abnormal numbers compared to the rest of the voters.
          IE: the military areas seemed to vote as the rest of public..
          Again.. no “military bump” that I expected..

      • hippydog

        and I just noticed my original question was deleted..
        So much for liberty and freedom..

  • SovereignGlobalist

    Huh? You miss Ron Paul’s consistent point 100%. It is not American to support any country as opposed to the rest. The support of one country sends an implicit message that there is opposition to that countries enemies. Why should the US support Israel as opposed to the democracy of Costa Rica or Switzerland? Also there are some non-jewish middle east nations that are decent. I had a girlfriend from Kuwait who would tell me about the freedoms they enjoyed there. She wore miniskirts to high school in Kuwait.

      @SovereignGlobalist J, i’m going to get my cattle prod cause all your saying is moo…

  • LavonAffairUSSLiberty

    @J You only wish Ron would support Israel… Give me a break.

    In 1954, Israeli agents working in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including a United States diplomatic facility, and left evidence behind implicating Arabs as the culprits. The ruse would have worked, had not one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to capture and identify one of the bombers, which in turn led to the round up of an Israeli spy ring.

    Some of the spies were from Israel, while others were recruited from the local Jewish population. Israel responded to the scandal with claims in the media that there was no spy ring, that it was all a hoax perpetrated by “anti-Semites”.

    Honorable Chairman, members of the Knesset. The trial that started two days ago in Egypt against 13 Jews is disturbing everybody and brings about an emotional turmoil and deep bitterness in the country [Israel] and in the whole Jewish world. Indeed, it must cause concern and anxiety in the hearts of all justice-seeking people around the universe. The Committee for Foreign Affairs and Security has alreadv dealt and will further deal with this serious issue. But at this stage I feel obliged to make a short announcement. In my speech in the Knesset on November 15 1 said “The uncontrolled behavior of’ Egypt . . . does not indicate . . . that its leadership . . . is seeking moderate approaches and peace. How far Egypt is from this spirit [of moderation and peace] can be learned from the plot woven in Alexandria, the show-trial which is being organized there against a group of Jews who became victims of false accusations of espionage, and who, it seems, are being threatened and tortured in order to extract from them confessions in imaginary crimes.” This gloomy assumption was verified and was revealed to be a cruel and shocking fact, by the declaration of the accused Victorin Ninyo in the military court in Cairo that was published this morning. [According to this declaration] she was tortured during the interrogation which preceded the trial and by that torture they extracted from her false confessions to crimes which did not happen. The government of Israel strongly protests this practice, which revives in the Middle East the methods used by the Inquisition in the Middle Ages. The government of Israel strongly rejects the false accusations of the general Egyptian prosecution, which relegates to the Israeli authorities horrible deeds and diabolic conspiracies against the security and the international relations of Egypt.

    • LavonAffairUSSLiberty

      Continued … From this stand we have protested many times in the past persecution and false accusations of Jews in various countries. We see in the innocent Jews accused by the Egyptian authorities of such severe crimes, victims of vicious hostility to the State of Israel and the Jewish people. If their crime is being Zionist and devoted to Israel, millions of Jews around the world share this crime. We do not think that the rulers of Egypt should be interested in being responsible for shedding Jewish blood. We call upon all those who believe in peace, stability and human relations among nations to prevent fatal injustice.

      But as the public trial progressed, it was evident that Israel had indeed been behind the bombing. Eventually, Israeli’s Defense Minister Pinhas Lavon was brought down by the scandal, although it appears that he was himself the victim of a frame-up by the real authors of the bombing project, code named “Operation Susannah.”

      It is therefore a fact that Israel has a prior history of setting off bombs with the intent to blame Arabs for them.

      This is not the only example of a “False Flag” operation designed to trick the United States into attacking Israel’s enemies. According to Victor Ostrovsky, a Mossad defector now living in Canada, Ronald Reagan was tricked into bombing Libya by means of a radio transmitter smuggled into Tripoli by the Mossad, which broadcast messages designed to fool the United States into thinking Libya was about to launch a massive terror attack on the west. On the basis of this fake evidence, the US bombed Libya, killing Khadaffi’s daughter.

      The Jews of Iraq is a story by a Jewish writer revealing yet another false flag operation where Israelis used bombs and planted the blame on Arabs

      More recently, Captain Ward Boston, who served as senior legal counsel for the Navy’s Court of Inquiry into the Israeli attack on USS Liberty, has come forward to report that the Court of Inquiry was ORDERED to conclude that the attack was an accident by President Lyndon Johnson. In hindsight, given the use of unmarked aircraft and boats by Israel during the actual attack, it appears that Israel intended to sink the US ship and frame Egypt for the attack, tricking the US into the war against Egypt.

      • LavonAffairUSSLiberty

        Continued …

        So, with this established history, it is now time to re-examine some facts about the World Trade Towers:

        1. There is no proof at all of who was actually on the hijacked airplanes last 9/11. Even the head of the FBI admits that the only hard evidence are the names used by the hijackers on faked IDs. At least 7 of the men whose names were on those IDs have since turned up alive. Another had died back in 1999. None of the names of the alleged hijackers were on the passenger lists of the four aircraft. We do not know who was on those planes, only that we are supposed to think they were Arab Muslims.

        2. The night before the attacks on the World Trade Towers, men using those stolen identities visited bars and strip clubs, making sure they would be noticed and remembered by all they met. Students of Islam will confirm that no Muslim devout enough to be willing to commit suicide would spend the night before he was to meet Allah violating so many of Islam’s laws regarding alcohol and nude women. This suggests the planting of a false trail ahead of time, doubly so because we know the identities were stolen. Coupled with the deception of the faked Osama “confession” video tape , it is beyond question that deception and fraud exists in the World Trade Towers case.

        • LavonAffairUSSLiberty


          3. Contrary to early reports (including a statement by George Bush) of large numbers of Israelis being killed in the 9-11 attacks, only two Israelis died, both passengers on the airplanes. No Israelis working in or near the World Trade Towers died. The foreign press has long rumored that Israelis were given an advance warning not to go to work on 9-11, and in the case of Odigo, an Israeli company with offices located near the World Trade Towers, the existence of a warning message sent before the four aircraft had even left the ground is an established fact. That someone in Israel knew of the attacks ahead of time is beyond question.

          4. There is an Israeli spy ring. As in the Lavon Affair, Israeli assets have been trying to dismiss the spy ring story (apparently with the FBI’s help) while accusing those who refuse to be silent of “anti-Semitism”. The lesson from the Lavon case is that Israel’s strident denials and smear campaigns are a sure sign that something is indeed being covered up, even as the “art students” continue to be deported. And, as a US Official stated in Carl Cameron’s suppressed story on the Israeli Spy/Bugging Ring, evidence does exist that links the arrested Israeli spies with 9-11, but that this evidence has been classified by the United States Government, probably to keep from looking like total idiots at having been so easily fooled for the Nth time.

          The United States has been deceived before by Israeli covert operations with the intention of harming American relations with the Arab nations. Israel has never hesitated to kill Americans (USS Liberty) or allow Americans to be killed (The bombing in Beirut that killed 241 American Marines) when it serves a purpose. And, the fact remains that Israel has exploited 9-11 from the instant when Ehud Barak appeared on the BBC moments after the attacks on the World Trade Towers (holding a prepared speech) to the aggression against the Palestinian people which has escalated non-stop ever since 9-11.

          Who is responsible for the World Trade Towers attacks? We truly do not know. What we do know beyond all doubt is that someone went to a great deal of effort to provide an easy and at times all-too-obvious a target to blame. Our nation was fooled by that stunt before. The result was that our money and the blood of our children was spent to attack someone else’s enemies.

          There is an old saying that goes, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on ME!”

          There is another saying, “We won’t get fooled again!”

          Or will we?

          Published 04/03/2005

          By Reuters

          Egypt is astonished at Israel’s tribute to nine Egyptian Jews recruited by the Jewish state to carry out “terrorist operations” in Cairo and Alexandria in the 1950s, the foreign minister said.

          Israeli President Moshe Katsav last week honored the Egyptian Jews recruited by Israel as agents to ruin Cairo’s rapprochement with the United States and Britain by firebombing sites frequented by foreigners the cities.

    Newt is unelectable. If he is the nominee, people who don’t even vote will come out of the woodwork just to vote against him. I can hardly think of anything more outrageous than hearing Newt Gingrich calling someone else’s behavior despicable. Unless it’s a room full of “Christians” booing the Golden Rule. This is the stuff we are up against.

    Theses graphs are very encouraging to see in the wake of South Carolina. Santorum has nothing to look forward to in February. Another poor showing in Florida will knock him out of the race. Then the rest of the country gets a very stark choice: an empty suit, a mad worm or Ron Paul.

    The stupidity and bloodlust of certain voters pose an existential threat to the Republican Party. Since this party promotes anything but the republic, I won’t cry at its funeral. But please keep reminding people that their party cannot survive without this revolution. Neither can the USA. The Founders pledged three things to each other. We must be prepared to do the same.

    • SovereignGlobalist

      @We’re in VT too You can bet I would vote against Newt. If I had to choose between Newt or Barack, my anti-vote will go for Barack, even though I’m a hard core libertarian. But since I have Gary Johnson as a choice, I will vote for him before Barack.

    Somehow we have got to get together and do our own independent exit polls. It needs to happen because something tells me something very fishy is going on.

  • Liberty

    Ron is such an inspiration to many citizens here and through out the world. We know the media, the G.O.P. and the globist’s don’t want him to win. As many supporters think, fraud is quite evident. Thanks to our education system, people don’t question and investigate issues or candidates. Almost half ot the voters made their decisions this week. We need to reach the voters that only base their decisions by the debates only. I thought that we had alot more support in S.C. with the military, the youth, the college students, the independents, and the former Democrats. Well, onward to the next election. We exit polling, paper trail, and no changing of the rules (transparency).

  • DAgo

    I’m sorry but son Rand is NOWHERE near his dad in terms of charisma, intelligence, etc. I do find it weird that he isn’t very articulate on those debates, seems like he worries too much about the clock thing.. Because once he get’s off the debate stage and talks in a press conference, he’s instantly much more comfortable, calm and articulate.

    I don’t even think he needs a debate coach- he just needs to chill on the debates.

    • DAgo

      Hopefully though, he’ll grow into it as the race continues.

      He needs to drop the nervous chuckles and stuttering ASAP- those are uncomfortable to watch, and project nervousness/insecurity and a false sense that he doesn’t take things all that seriously for those who aren’t convinced about him.

      Once again, when he gets off the stage he becomes more serious and projects a much better image. It would be a very excellent contrast to Romney and Gingrich’s chuckles, too.
