Message from Ron Paul

Here is the  text of a message sent to us by Dr. Ron Paul


July 23, 2007

What a great trip to South Carolina! On Saturday, I talked to the
Spartanburg County GOP.  About 350 people attended from all over the South,
and the local party made $5000 out of it.  Originally, this had seemed
to be unfriendly territory, but everyone couldn’t have been nicer or
more welcoming.  And we all learned something.

Then I spoke to a rally in Greenville.  The local papers were less
biased than most, but they still estimated the crowd at 500.  We had set
the room with 1100 chairs, and almost all of them were taken.  In
addition, people stood in ranks at the back and sides.  In other words, there
were more than 1000 people there.

This crowd — also from all over the South, and thanks to all those who
drove hours to be there — was typically diverse.  Lots of young
people, but also lots of families with children.  And seniors too.  I talked
about foreign and domestic policy, and noted that those concerned
about pollution must support private property.  Government property is
never well cared for.  Just look at the environmental problems left over
from the USSR!

I also talked about sound money and the Federal Reserve, about the
inflation it is inflicting on us, and about the recessions it causes, and
the unjust redistribution of wealth it brings about.  A young man who
drove up from Auburn, Alabama, said he’d never thought he’d see the
day when a call to abolish the central bank would receive a long
standing ovation in American politics.

But if there is one thing we know, people are hungry for the truth.
  And that is especially true of this moment.  I found the same concerns at
a picnic of local political activists I attended.  I even got
questions about Austrian economics!

Last Tuesday in Georgia, Dr. Paul Broun defeated state senator John
Whitehead in a special election to Congress.  John had all the
establishment and money on his side.  But Paul discussed obedience to the
Constitution, limited government, the failure of the national Republican
leadership, and a less aggressive foreign policy.  And he won.  Columnist
Robert Novak said this “terrified” all the establishment types in the
Republican Party.  I had talked to Paul during his campaign, and was
thrilled to congratulate him on his victory.  There is a new wind

Our bottom-up campaign — not top-down in the usual official fashion —
has gotten far bigger and more successful, at a faster rate, than even
I dreamed.  And the sky is the limit.  Don’t we owe it to our great
forbears, and to our children and grandchildren and great grandchildren
down through the generations, not to lose our country?  We can win the
fight for the ideals of the founders.  We can have freedom, peace, and
prosperity.  We can be blessed by our fellow citizens, and by all those
who come after us.

Come, join me in this great endeavor with your most generous
