I did a story about this at
Ron Paul Announces Run for Presidency -- Indirectly. Let's Give Him a President's Day to Remember
Saturday, February 19, 2011 8:24
Having helped spearhead the "Draft Ron Paul 2004" campaign starting in 2001, collecting a few thousand signatures; and being extremely surprised and
pleased to see how well he did in the 2008 campaign, I have been watching carefully to see if he will run in 2012.
There certainly has been a lot of encouragement from the freedom-advocacy community for him to run again. He has a grandfatherly, disarming way of
speaking of very difficult and divisive issues in a common-sense, charming way. He has a strong foundation in principles of freedom and is able to
articulate that message powerfully, resonating with people from a wide spectrum of backgrounds, parties and religious beliefs.
When various talk show and television hosts have asked him if he plans to run in 2012, he has been saying that he has been considering it, but that it
hasn't been an obvious choice for him. It puts a big strain on him and his family.
When I heard Rand Paul's presentation at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where Ron won the Presidential straw poll by a very
strong margin for a second year in a row, and I saw how strongly Rand worded his remarks about the dire need we have to elect a
Constitutionally-rooted person into the presidency in 2012, it seemed to me that the decision was leaning strongly toward Ron Paul running. How could
he resist such an overture, both from his son who recently won a Senate race against great odds, and from his supporters. Here is Ron Paul's speech
The today Ron sent out the message below to his mailing lists. It basically puts the decision in the hands of us -- the people. Will we show him
that we want him to run, by helping him raise a huge wad of campaign money on President's day 2011? Note that his wording is all but saying he plans
to run, but that he wants to see what kind of support there is out there. Let's dig deep from our own pockets, and pass this message on to all our
freedom-loving friends, email lists, blogs, alternative news outlets.
If his past money bombs are any indicator, he will come away very pleased. On Sunday, December 16, 2007, the commemoration of the Boston Tea Party,
he set a record for dollars raised by a presidential candidate in a single day, pulling in $6 million in a 24-hour period.
What better day than the patriotic President's Day to run this money bomb. He, more than any other major potential candidate, stands for freedom and
the Constitution; which are themes of the holiday, which other presidents have defiled by their disregard to the Constitution they swore to uphold.
The sitting president, Barry Soetoro (aka Obama), defied the Constitution by the very act of running, since he is not a natural-born citizen.
I don't know about you, but I really enjoy listening to Ron's videos shown on the CampaignforLiberty YouTube channel as he appears on various
television programs on a regular basis.
Here is the message Ron Paul sent out a message to his supporters, including the images:
February 18, 2011
A great man was born 279 years ago.
George Washington was a freedom fighter, a leader, and one of our greatest Presidents. But, much of General Washington's greatness was marked not by
what he did, but by what he chose not to do.
He could have been a King.
Instead, he stood for Liberty and stepped aside after eight years, allowing our young Republic to grow into the greatest nation in Human history.
2012 offers our movement a tremendous opportunity. Our nation is beset with crippling debt, an out of control federal government, and a foreign policy
that weakens our national defense and isolates us from the world.
But with hard work and determination, we can change course and turn our country back toward Liberty and all of its rewards.
Quite frankly, we need to elect a President in 2012 who will do a lot less: less meddling in the economy, less spending, less warrantless ransacking,
less bailing out of Wall Street, less inflating, and less foreign aid and overseas intervention.
We need a President who will respect our Constitution, not someone who simply pays lip service to our traditions.
Because I want a President who does so much less, a lot of people ask me if this means I want a weak President.
My answer is "No!" I want a strong President - a President like George Washington.
I want a President strong enough NOT to take power he should not have.
It is no secret that I am weighing my personal political options for 2012, and that I am relying on Liberty PAC to fund my efforts while I make
Monday, February 21st, is Presidents' Day, which celebrates George Washington's birthday, and we hope to make it one to remember.
On Monday, Liberty PAC will host its first-ever Money Bomb. Please mark it on your calendar and consider contributing. If we all come together and
pitch in, we can take our country back from the statists that are stealing our Liberty and shredding our Constitution.
The next few months will be critical to ensuring a successful political operation for the 2012 cycle. I hope you will join me by making this
Presidents' Day, February 21st, truly special.
Paid for by Liberty PAC.

Let's do it! Let's show him, and let's show the world that America still stands for freedom, and that the conspirator's days are numbered, who
have been installing tyranny everywhere and every chance they can get.
The donate link is already working. Let's give it a good head start, then chip in more on President's Day.
Pass it on!
p.s. This is relevant to free energy inasmuch as Ron Paul is a major antidote to the conspiracy that seeks to overthrow freedom and establish a global
police state. They are against the emergence of breakthrough free energy technologies because they empower individuals; while the rising tyrrany is
all about enslaving humanity.
