'08 Dark Horse Running Strong ... in Cyberspace

As reported by ABCNews.com:

'08 Dark Horse Running Strong ... in Cyberspace
Republican Hopeful Ron Paul Is a Rising Star on the Internet -- but Still Lags in the Real World


Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, on the campaign trail. (Ron Paul 2008 Campaign)

By LINDSAY HAMILTON
June 2, 2007

His name has shot up on the list of most Googled terms; it peppers the blogosphere; and it is attached to more than 100 networking groups on MeetUp.com.

He is Ron Paul and he is arguably the most popular Republican candidate ... on the Internet.

Dr. Ron Paul, an obstetrician from Texas, is a little-known Republican congressman running on a platform of limited government. In most national polls, he gets one percent or less of the vote.

But in Internet polls, Paul is frequently in first place.

"We think the Internet is the great equalizer," said Jesse Benton, communications director of Ron Paul 2008. "It is one of the last great, real vehicles of liberty."

Paul's star has been on the rise since the Republican debate on May 15, when he challenged Rudy Giuliani over 9/11.

"Have you ever read about the reasons they attacked us?" Paul asked. "They attack us because we've been over there. We've been bombing Iraq for 10 years."

Recently, Paul got huge applause when he appeared on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," something rare for a Republican. Next week, the candidate will be a guest on "The Daily Show."

Cynics suggest some of Paul's popularity is manufactured. Online polls and other Websites have accused Paul's supporters of spamming to make him appear more popular.

The campaign, however, insists the support is real. The day after the first Republican debate on May 3, the campaign Website had 706,000 visitors and, according to Benton, Paul has the most successful YouTube channel of any candidate. He is also the most requested Republican on Eventful.com, a site where users request candidates visit their city. Even more striking, Benton says since that May 3 debate, the number of donors to the campaign has increased fourfold.

"I wouldn't call it a grassroots effort, I'd call it a grassfire effort. It's growing by leaps and bounds," said Benton. "We couldn't even manage it if we tried."

Web sites popping up in support of Paul encourage users to network through sites like MySpace, to vote in online polls, to donate money and to join local Paul 2008 groups...

Thank you brucelee. You should definitely encourage all your family and friends to vote for him in the primaries as well! Yesterday I managed to convince both my parents and a good friend of mine to support Ron Paul. The truth will prevail ;).

P.S. He's throwing up the shocker here (inadvertently...) how can you *not* love the guy?

Mr. PAUL introduced the following bill; which was referred to the
Committee on Natural Resources

A BILL

To protect the second amendment rights of individuals to carry
firearms in units of the National Park System, and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the `National Park Second Amendment
Restoration and Personal Protection Act of 2007'.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

Congress finds that--

(1) the second amendment to the Constitution provides
that `the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be
infringed';

(2) section 2.4(a)(1) of title 36, Code of Federal
Regulations, provides that `except as otherwise provided in this
section and parts 7 (special regulations) and 13 (Alaska
regulations), the following are prohibited: (i) Possessing a weapon,
trap or net (ii) Carrying a weapon, trap or net (iii) Using a weapon,
trap or net';

(3) the regulations described in paragraph (2) prevent
individuals complying with Federal and State laws from exercising the
second amendment rights of the individuals while at units of the
National Park System;

(4) the existence of different laws relating to the
transportation and possession of firearms at different units of the
National Park System entraps law-abiding gun owners while at units of
the National Park System; and

(5) the Federal laws should make it clear that the second
amendment rights of an individual at a unit of the National Park
System should not be infringed.

SEC. 3. FIREARMS IN UNITS OF THE NATIONAL PARK SYSTEM.

No Federal regulation shall restrict any individual from
possessing or carrying a firearm if that restriction is based in
whole or in part upon the fact that the individual is in a unit of
the National Park System.

Great video going over the "History of Ron Paul" from when he ran for Congress back in 1996. It's older but it's great at showing what a wonderful man he is.

No comments? I thought it was a pretty sweet video. Also, if you really do want to support Ron Paul he needs donations. The second quarter ends June 30th and if we're able to show a huge monetary jump people will be forced to start considering Ron Paul. I've already donated a huge chunk of money out of my "gun fund" because I *know* he's the only one I can really trust to preserve our rights to bear arms and hopefully return other rights already taken away. Please help if you can! Every little bit helps!

Paul understands that electing him president wouldn’t by itself “reinstate the Constitution and restore the Republic.” He is a realist: “You just can’t turn one switch and solve every problem. You have to build coalitions. I’d put a lot of pressure on Congress to live up to their responsibilities.” He does know what he can do on day one of the Paul presidency. His first act would be to begin cleaning up the mess we’ve made in the Middle East: “What you could do in ten minutes to send a signal to the world that things were going to be different is tell the Navy to turn around and leave the shores of Iraq. We have two aircraft carriers there, another arriving, and seven ships that just moved into the Persian Gulf. I would just tell them to turn around and leave. Tell the region that this isn’t my approach, and I’m willing to talk. I think that would immediately raise our standing in the world tremendously.”

From the following (very wonderful) article:
http://www.amconmag.com/2007/2007_06_18/cover.html

Seriously, it's an amazing article. I urge everyone to read it!
Thank you Gunatics!
