Well, Fred doesn't have to worry about his pickup getting filled anymore. Of course, he could have taken some of the corporate lobbiest money in his checking account and filled it up and driven back to TN and saved us the time.

"Ron Paul's site doesn't skimp on substance".

That's because he doesn't talk in circles or change his mind about an issue every 5 minutes. His positions are rock solid. You KNOW what your getting when you vote for Ron Paul !

The person with the best professional record of doing everything best is Mitt Romney.
Best web presence
Most well organized
Most donations for campaign among republicans
No sneaky behind the scenes character assassinations
Family handles everything just as professionally as he does.(not necessary to tell them not to talk)
Best Education
Best Record on Taxes
Most Integrity
Most Strength
ALL of his children and wife of 38 years support 100
If he is successful in his own life and his businesses are successful and the Olympics are successful it tells you that the country would be most successful under his leadership.

Ron Paul's is a working site for his decentralized supporters to keep them informed and coordinated at least loosely.
The key point you missed is the value of the constant streaming update of total contributions, almost $3.5 million so far since January 1. This lets people see they are making an immediate impact every time they contribute. Then they post your name and location.
Very effective.
Ron Paul's site is not up because every one else has one. His site is up because it invigorates his campaign, which is especially helpful during news blackouts, as we are currently in.
You know with all the problems facing America, it would be really nice if the mainstream media actually cared about reporting on the positions of each Presidential candidate on all the issues rather than reporting on the horse race. Unfortunately the MSM thinks that only the polls and the candidate’s “presidential charisma” are important. Who the heck cares how they comb their hair or what color her dress was?! We will get more in depth reporting on the Super Bowl players than we will on the remaining candidates. It is all quite maddening.

We each seem to have our own major issue(s) that make their choice for President seem like the best one. My question is: Would someone tell me why we should NOT elect Ron Paul?

The rest, with Richardson out and Kucinich low in the polls, seem to be talking crazy talk about our military adventures in the Middle East. Additionally, no one else seems to understand the problems with the economy, inflation, and out of control deficit spending. Inflation is going to eat us alive, as it has already started to do so. Do you really believe that the REAL inflation rate last year, the rate that was used by the government for Social Security check increases this month, was 2.3%? Just look at the price of gold up 30% in 2007, now at an all time high and getting higher!

One can not talk about tax cuts without ALSO talking about cutting spending. We have a $9 trillion debt (nearly double since 2000) that must be paid so we can afford Social Security and Medicare. The interest payments will go sky high when we begin to fight inflation with higher Federal Reserve bank rates.

And we must stop inflation or everyone's life savings will go down the tubes, along with the middle class, like what has happened to the middle class in most countries south of our border. And do not forget National Health Insurance, which is coming down the tracks right at us, unless Republicans begin to understand the seriousness of runaway deficits and inflation. And start educating the country. A Democratic President will surely not fight inflation like Volcker and Reagan did!

Please vote Ron Paul and save the country from bankruptcy abroad and at home!

All Presidential Candidates for the 2008 election belong or are funded by a group started by Skull and Bones of Yale called the Council on Foreign Relations, a war mongering group that disguises itself as a think tank. Most members belong to Skull and Bones, the Bilderbergs, the Trilateral Commission, etc. just like Kerry and Bush (both Boneheads). Again, these Nazi sympathizing groups have stacked both sides of the ticket to assure themselves control of the government.
Check it out
2008 Presidential Candidates Members of the CFR include:
Democrat CFR Candidates:
Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton (Yale Law, Editor Yale Review of Law and Social Action), John Edwards, Chris Dodd and Bill Richardson
Republican CFR Candidates:
Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Fred Thompson, Newt Gingrich
Corporate members include:
Halliburton of Dubai, British Petroleum, Dutch Royal Shell, Exxon Mobile, General Electric (NBC), Chevron, Lockheed Martin, Merck Pharmaceuticals, News Corp (FOX), Bloomberg, IBM, Time Warner, JP Morgan/ Chase Manhattan & several other major financial institutions.
Other Notable Members Include:
Dick Cheney (Director 1987-1988), John Kerry, Bill Clinton (Yale Law, met Hillary while attending), Al Gore, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, John, David & Nelson Rockefeller, Condolezza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Alan Greenspan (Director 1987-1988), Colin Powell, Henry Kissinger, Angelina Jolie (Yes, the actress has a five year term membership as an ambassador), Lewis �Scooter� Libby, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Maurice Hank Greenberg (Vice Chairman & Director).
The goals of the CFR are best described by its very own members. Bill Clinton’s Georgetown mentor and CFR member Carroll Quigley states:“The Council on Foreign Relations is the American branch of a society which originated in England…[and]…believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one world rule established.” Quigley differs from many of his CFR colleagues in that he believes their plan for a new world order should be more publicly disclosed. In his book Tragedy and Hope, Quigley concedes he is unique among his peers in that he believes the new world order plan of global government’s “role in history is significant enough to be known.” Quigley also admits that the two-party system allows for both groups to be controlled at the highest level but operate like bitter rivals. As Quigley says, this gives the voters the chance to “throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound of extreme shifts in policy.” Controlling Washington elite allowed private central banks to �dominate the political system…and economy of world as a whole” and implement a new system of “feudalist fashion” through “secret agreements.” Although he believes the CFR’s intentions should be more public, Quigley understands the average person doesn’t understand feudalism or serfdom and will never read his book.
“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.” J. Edgar Hoover
President Kennedy said of Freemasonry:“The very word ’secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.” President John F. Kennedy
