Ron Paul Launches Presidential Campaign

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, whose outspoken libertarian views and folksy style made him a cult hero during two previous presidential campaigns, will announce on Tuesday that he's going to try a third time.

Sources close to Paul, who is in his 12th term in the House, said he will unveil an exploratory presidential committee, a key step in gearing up for a White House race. He will also unveil the campaign’s leadership team in Iowa, where the first votes of the presidential election will be cast in caucuses next year.

Paul, 75, ran as the Libertarian Party candidate in 1988, finishing with less than one half a percent of the vote. After more than a decade as a Republican congressman, Paul gave it another shot in the 2008 presidential election, gaining attention for being the only Republican candidate calling for the end to the war in Iraq and for his “money bomb” fundraising strategy, which brought in millions of dollars from online donors in single-day pushes.

Paul took 10 percent of the vote in the Iowa caucuses and 8 percent in New Hampshire’s primary. He finished second, with 14 percent of the vote, in the Nevada caucuses, and eventually finished fourth in the Republican nominating process with 5.6 percent of the total vote. Paul’s campaign book, The Revolution: A Manifesto also reached No. 1 on The New York Times best-seller list in 2008.

This would seem to be an ideal year for Paul: Since the last election, the Republican Party has moved much closer to his view on deficit reduction, which made him an early tea party favorite. All of the party's top-tier presidential hopefuls are focusing on lowering debt, government spending, and tax rates, issues Paul has long advocated.

lol....    Hannity is a badger...worse than O'reilly when it comes letting
someone talk with their answer to his fucking fat mouth questions.....he ask
questions in form of answers to fuck the guest like he was trying with Ron
Paul.4/25..he tries to use his unfound judgement to persuade the national
audience opinion on his guest in a question before the guest can even answer.
Then when the guest Ron Paul answers he cuts them off leaving his opinion as the
last thing heard which is wrong, but taken as the right national opinion.. The
only reason he let Ron talk as long as he did last night is that he gave him
Breaking news which Hannity must have agreed not to be such an asshole and let
him finish his answers to his dumb fucking questions...especially the mosque
question at ground zero...what a shit head..get to the important stufff...not
the things that is an attempt to take away the religious votes from Ron
Paul.....Hannity is a mother fucker... I really cant stand to watch.....worse
than Bill O'fucking Reilly....just big blabber mouths for Rupert Murdock another
NWO, Globalist as Soro's...but Rupert plays it more eloquently with his fox
biased news...Notice Glenn Beck only talks of Soros and not Murdock....doesnt
want to lose his pay check.....He only has half truths....Thats why I quit
watching him...its programming....of your mind...To think a certain way....funny
how they exclude Ron Paul from all debates on TV and who is running. They
mention everyone but Ron Paul....Plus I have been hearing our electronic voting
system is rigged....Heard court hearings on that from a progranmmer that was
asked to make such a program for some big voting firm, maker of these electronic
bullshit counters without anyone knowing it was rigged..The whole system is
demonized that if Ron Paul wins all the rat bastards will take a hit....We will
have to protect Ron Paul because the Rothschilds will definitely put out a hit
order along with the CIA on him. Just like JFK and Lincoln.

Well the NWO is already in control and has our nation / world on the very edge of a major crash that can be unleashed at any moment. If RP gets in expect them to 'push the button' if you will and plunge us into the deepest depression ever. Ron will be able to block the totalitarian takeover and prevent a civil war / revolution at that point which will really be what saves our nation.
