New Game!

Friday, June 13, 2008

Over the past 17 months you and I delivered a message of freedom, the likes of which American politics has not seen in decades. With the primary season now over, the presidential campaign has come to an end. But the Revolution has only begun.

Today I am happy to announce the official launch of the Ron Paul Campaign for Liberty. Please visit our new website and join us:

Over the next few months I will be developing a program, assembling a team, and announcing new and exciting projects. We will have a permanent presence on the American political landscape. That I promise you.

Right now, I need your patience and support. I want the Campaign for Liberty to be a grassroots campaign; so your energy, your creativity, your feedback, and your participation are essential.

Together, we will educate our fellow Americans in freedom, sound money, non-interventionism, and free markets. We will write commentaries and broadcast videos on the news of the day. And I'll work with friends whom I respect to design materials for homeschoolers.

Politically, we will expand the great work of our precinct leader program. We will make our presence felt at every level of government. We will keep an eye on Congress, and lobby against legislation that threatens us. And we will identify and support candidates who champion our great ideas.

"In the final analysis," I wrote in my new book The Revolution: A Manifesto, "the last line of defense in support of freedom and the Constitution consists of the people themselves. If the people want to be free, if they want to lift themselves out from underneath a state apparatus that threatens their liberties, squanders their resources on needless wars, destroys the value of their dollar, and spews forth endless propaganda about how indispensable it is and how lost we would all be without it, there is no force that can stop them."

Our time has come to act on these words.

May future generations look back on our work and say that these were men and women who, in a moment of great crisis, stood up to their politicians, the opinion-makers, and the establishment, and saved their country.

For liberty,

P.S. Please join me. Go to our website,, and become a member of the Campaign for Liberty. Our goal is 100,000 members by September. Can we reach it?

Game Over?

Ron Paul a annoncé hier soir qu’il se retirait de la campagne.

C’est une surprise.

La stratégie était de poursuivre la campagne pour faire entendre une voie discordante lors de la convention Républicaine qui désignera officiellement McCain comme le candidat du parti.

Le message de remerciement qui remplace le site web officiel de la campagne ( ne donne aucune explication réelle.

Peut-être un jour connaîtra t-on les raisons réelles de cet abandon. Les pressions du GOP (Parti Républicain) ont probablement été trop fortes. La présence de Ron Paul aurait perturbé la convention et augmenté les risques de défaite de McCain lors de l’élection présidentielle.

Dans une interview donnée à ABC13, Ron Paul précise que le mouvement va se poursuivre au delà de la campagne sous forme d’un organisation « Campaign for liberty ». Le format de la campagne change mais le message reste.

“This is the beginning of something very big”.
