Ron Paul: The Revolution Continues

Photo by Gage Skidmore

Ron Paul sent out the following update earlier today:

Dear Supporter,

I wanted you to get an update from me personally, since we have some great news!

Due to the smart planning of our campaign and the hard work and diligence of supporters like you, we stand to send nearly 200 bound delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa. This number shatters the predictions of the pundits and talking heads and shows the seriousness of our movement.

What’s more, we will send several hundred additional supporters to Tampa who, while bound to Romney, believe in our ideas of liberty, constitutional government, and a common-sense foreign policy.

When it is all said and done, we will likely have as many as 500 supporters as delegates on the Convention floor. That is just over 20 percent!

And while this total is not enough to win the nomination, it puts us in a tremendous position to grow our movement and shape the future of the GOP!

I hope every one of you continues the fight we have advanced so well this year. I hope you will finish your local and state conventions, and, if you were selected as a national delegate, that you will head to Tampa in August to force the Republican Party to listen to the voice of liberty.

We have never had this kind of opportunity. There will be hundreds of your fellow supporters in Tampa who will be ready and willing to push the Republican Party back to its limited government, liberty roots.

There are many issues to fight for in Tampa. Also, candidates like Justin Amash, Kurt Bills, and Thomas Massie need your support as we move into the fall. Across the country, supporters of liberty have won local office and leadership positions in the GOP, and we need to keep working.

Our delegates’ presence must be felt both in Tampa and in years to come.

Stand up for what we believe in. Be respectful. And let the establishment know that we are the future of the Party and of the country.

Our Revolution is just getting started. You’ll be hearing plenty from me as we approach Tampa and the fall elections. You’ll also be hearing of important developments on Audit the Fed and Campaign for Liberty.

I hope you’ll continue to stand with me as we go forward. Our Revolution could not have come this far without you.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

    I will not be voting for Romney! Screw the media bias… screw the status quo. I’m not going to continue to spend my vote on this BS rigged 2-party system. I’m tired of the GREED and POWER without regard for doing what is right in regards to our liberty! Growth does not equal prosparity! How about this fiat currency backed by nothing? Inflation is THEFT and wealth transfer from poor to rich. This flawed system WILL FAIL eventually.

    Paul / Johnson 2012… I can dream can’t I? Common Paul… you only need 1/3rd of the vote to win if there are 3 candidates! Even if you don’t win, I want to hear you debate those high spenders!!!

    INCREDIBLE the ambiance at the Texas convention today. Never seen such an energized crowd in my life. Absolutely beautiful… it blows your minds.

    President Paul is at his best… probably the best speech of his campaign. Lot sof humour also.

    Don’t miss it, it brings back hope.

    Patriot and Surfisher,
    You are both correct that is up to us now and should be our primary focus. Everyone who has a convention must work on getting delegates at your convention and make sure to monitor how it is being conducted. Get as educated as you can before you go to Tampa. None of us can give up in the homestretch no matter what Ron Paul says. Read between the lines. It’s up to us now.

    Ron Paul has a lot of dedicated supporters out there, but not nearly enough. As a delegate, I helped him to win Minnesota. Perhaps his support in other states just wasn’t as strong as it was here. The man’s done all he could do, so let’s give him a break, let’s pick up the torch and take what he has started all the way to the finish line, in 2012 and beyond until we have taken our country back. Ron Paul is only one man, and one man alone cannot restore our liberties, it takes a constant and persistent effort by many people. Thomas Jefferson didn’t win our freedom alone, he was assisted by many others as well, and that’s what we need today. No man is a saviour, only Jesus Christ can rightfully make that claim. Some people out there view Dr. Paul almost as some sort of messianic figure, which he is not. It’s almost as though they worship him, and then when he states that he probably won’t win, these same people turn on him and call him all sorts of bad names. If you are looking for a man to save our country, you are dangerously mistaken. Cursed is the man who putteth his trust in man. Ron Paul has done a lot of great things, he is a true American patriot who has won the respect and admiration of millions of people, he is a messenger of truth who has brought up issues that no one else dared to speak of, and he’s infused our country with the Spirit of 76 once again, but he is only one man. The rest of it is up to we the people. Freedom is like a marriage or a business or a car, it takes work to maintain. It is never free, it is something that mankind has fought for since the beginning of time, since Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt. So to all you whiny little ninnies out there who bitch about Ron Paul “quitting” on you, put up or shut up. Either get off your pathetic little asses and fight for your freedom, or shut your face! I don’t have time for candy asses like you. You want to be free, but then you expect someone else to do the dirty work for you, you don’t want to lift a finger to do anything yourself. You might as well slink back into dependency and let the government do things for you, because it’s the same thing as with your whining about Ron Paul. Ron Paul is not a quitter, you idiots are! Our founders were not quitters, and neither should we be. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. If you want something done, then do it yourself. Thank you Dr. Paul for all you have done for us. Go now and enjoy your retirement with your family. You have earned it. One day God will surely say to you “Well done, my faithful servent. Enter into my rest!”

    Dr. Paul sounds a little “tired” even while trying to be positive. I can only imagine how he must feel after working so hard all this time only to be snubbed by the corrupt media at every turn. However, the defeatism I hear in his statement “while not enough to win the nomination…” makes me wonder what I’ve been wondering for quite awhile: Perhaps he and/or his family have been threatened – like SERIOUSLY threatened. It is what I expect from the same billionaires who are using those campaign dollars to slant the media, flip votes, rig elections, and totally steal the victory away from Ron Paul, the way they have done in so many Primaries/Caucuses already across the country. (Enough money will buy you anything, including an election.) Romney’s entire campaign has been a sham of the media – who are owned and controlled by those same corrupt billionaires. After all Dr. Paul has done, it is very hard for me to judge him for reacting the way he is now – especially considering he has most likely been “warned and threatened” not to push things too far. Would we have the same stamina at nearly 80 years old? I hope he will run as an independent. If not, I will write him in. The GOP needs to know we will not sell out by compromising and we will only choose LIBERTY, not more of the same in Obamney! Do what Ron Paul would do and vote with integrity!

    This news truly saddens my heart, that doctor Paul is seemingly giving up the fight when there are so many of us that believe in him and what he says. I know the doctor needs to be reminded that we support him and we will continue to fight for him. He is the hope that we need we must help put him on the right path again. I know doctor Paul wants us to be kind and peaceful but our founding fathers were not kind and respectful to the crown. We must fight if what we want change or nothing will ever change. Everthing that doctor paul says reminds us that we are American and That he is the voice in the darkness that helps guide us toward being a better country. We must not fail him nor our country. We need to reach out to doctor Paul because he needs us more then ever right now.

  • Surfisher

    The ONLY Fight right now to be fought is for Tampa (Ron Paul must be seated there)!

    Try, all of you, to comprehend this SIGNIFICANCE!

    Unless we assure a Ron Paul seating at Tampa — in order to expose nationwide and worldwide, the SCUM that has occupied our government — we’ll have a one-man-puppet-show (Rmoney “debating” himself, and winning)!

    Ron Paul to WIN — Or America to END 2012!
    (there are no other options)

  • Tony

    I find it interesting, and wonder if maybe Dr. Paul might get a little discouraged with his supporters, because of so many comments that seem to harbor the same types of hate , greed , and ignorance that has been the hidden force behind the seeming loss of our freedoms. I believe Paul is not only passionate about our freedoms in this country , but is also inspired by awakened people both from our past and present. Like Christ for instance , his message was of forgiveness , compassion , understanding… if your perception allows you only to see anger and hate then you are still in that state that has over come our gov. and so many other people. This was not Dr. Paul’s intention for a new revolution, why else would he have gave his permission to highlight the word love in the word revolution? I am turning my attention toward love and forgiveness every day from now on. That’s the revolution !

  • Rob

    Ron Paul has started the revolution. WE THE PEOPLE can NOT let this be in vain. We cannot forget what he has fought for and taught the mindless drones out there who just have their head down and accept the way things are. He has taught many of us to FIGHT for what is right. Ron Paul is not afraid of Treason that goes on behind closed doors, for that is what I believe is going on. Ron Paul is not afraid to stand up and call out his mates on what they are doing wrong. Though most of the time people are blind or turn blind eyes to what is going on. So we must take what he has shown us and fought for and continue the fight to TAMPA AND BEYOND.

    • Surfisher

      Rob — The ONLY Fight right now to be fought is for Tampa (Ron Paul must be seated there)!

      The rest, is for LATER eventualities!

      Try, all of you, to comprehend this SIGNIFICANCE!
      Unless we assure a Ron Paul seating at Tampa — in order to expose nationwide and worldwide, the SCUM that has occupied our government — we’ll have a one-man-puppet-show (Rmoney “debating” himself, and winning)!

  • Surfisher

    Unless the GOP Establishment (the corrupt Old Guard trying to save their money-milking positions) finally accede that Ron Paul has won a 5 State Plurality (which he did before all their frauds kicked in), and thus IS OFFICIALLY INVITED TO BE SEATED AT the RNC CONVENTION in TAMPA — Let Them Know WE WILL NEVER ACCEPT THE TRAVESTY OF A ONE-MAN-PUPPET-SHOW of Mittney talking to himself there!

    WE WILL NEVER VOTE FOR HIM — If he is not willing to allow Ron Paul to have his say!

    All men dream: but nor equally, Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did. I meant to make a new nation, to restore!
    T.E. Lawrence from: “Seven Pillars of Wisdom”
    What The Main Stream Media has called the Battle for The GOP is over. I expect that the Battle for America is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own American life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Country. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Obama knows that he will have to break us in this campaign or lose the Presidency. If we can stand up to him, all America may be freed and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.
    But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that if Ron Paul’s America and The Ron Paul Revolution last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.
    “Winston Churchill” and Wikipedia
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that votes Ron Paul with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition:
    And gentlemen in America now a-bed
    Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That voted with us upon President Ron Paul’s Election Day.” Shakespeare
    Liberty and Freedom for US All vote Ron Paul

    WHY does he issue these statements? I thought the whole point was to WIN? I am getting disappointed in Dr. Paul lately. He wants to fight, but conceeds the whole thing. WHAT’S GOING ON HERE????????

  • Jack

    Let’s keep on fighting, we have a lot to lose, for example, OUR FREEDOM!!!

    Well, not really, but you have the idea. 🙂

    Spread the message and keep in touch with the Ron Paul Campaign, there’s an app for that!!!

  • patty

    Gary Johnson endorsed Ron Paul last night on the Stewart show.

    • Surfisher

      Ricky Hicks —

      Ron Paul MUST win a 5 state delegate plurality to be seated at Tampa! This is the ONLY GOAL all of us need to concentrate at this time! (Why do you think the GOP is pulling all stops to prevent this — because, once at the RNC Convention, Ron Paul will neuter this scum! And his supporters — the Real Americans — will surround the convention in the hundreds of thousands)!

      This has to be IMBEDDED IN ALL OUR MINDS — Get Ron Paul seated in Tampa! Nothing else is as important as this!

      After Tampa…depending on what transpires — other options (independent) for Ron Paul may be discussed (BUT NOT NOW)!

      A Neg on this post…?

      Don’t you understand the consequences?!

      Our Liberty will END — and our money will become worthless!

      Here is a historical description of Things To Come!

      Read this book by Stefan Zweig “The World of Yesterday”.

      I read this nostalgic historical events book about 30 year ago — and still remember some notable points that may soon become true again!

      After WWI — Germany’s inflation got so bad, that they reached the point of printing money on just one side of the paper (to save on the cost of ink)! That is FACTUALLY verifiable!

      I can’t recall the exact numbers — but seems that one egg cost One Million Marks. I do recall that clerks used the blank side of the printed money as notation pads (since buying regular paper would cost much more)!

      One passage has been imbedded in my mind — A German woman going to the grocery store leaves her wicker basket full of hundreds of millions of paper Marks outside the door (since it is so heavy to carry). After exiting, she finds her basket stolen.

      Just the basket — since it had intrinsic value — not the paper money, which was dumped on the street!

    God Bless Ron Paul, and God Bless what remains of a free America!!!!

      i’m just afraid we will not make it in time before the world breaks loss by the unthinkable. they are calculating our movements against theirs and i am sure they are taking measures to insure the success of their personal agendas. good game.
