A terrific speech from the Conservative Congressman from Texas. Well worth a listen. Transcript available at this link.
Via WFB, part of me thinks he needs a history lesson, the rest thinks when referring to Ron Paul supporters that saying ‘Nobody said it was over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor’ was probably a blatant Animal House reference.
From Monday, it was Paul versus Paul on inflation, government spending and the role of the FED on Bloomberg TV.
Dr. Paul kicked his can here. Mr. Krugman completely distorts the cause of the Great Depression in the debate and also says the post World War II economy was best ever. This is two examples of Mr. Krugman completely misrepresenting the truth.
- Ron Paul – “Governments aren’t suppose to run the economy, people are suppose to run the economy.”
- Paul Krugman – “I’m a believer in capitalism.” (I know, LOL!)
More and more everyday, it seems as there will be a brokered GOP convention in Tampa.
Ron Paul may have officially come in third in tonight’s Iowa caucuses, but if his organizational strategy went off as planned, it is possible that the Texas Congressman is actually the real winner of the state’s Republican nominating contest.
Senior advisors for Paul’s coalitions team told Business Insider this week that the campaign’s organizational strategy was focused not only on getting as many votes as they can, but in making sure that their volunteers stuck around after the voting to make sure that they were nominated as delegates to the county’s Republican convention — the first step towards being appointed as a delegate to the Republican National Convention.
That’s because Iowa’s Republican caucuses are actually non-binding — it’s technically just a straw poll. The only thing that will get Paul’s — or any other candidate’s — Iowa supporters to Tampa this year is if they stuck around and volunteered, or were elected, as delegates.
‘The Ron Paul Chronicles.’ The Jon Huntsman campaign is out with a web ad showing Ron Paul’s true colors.
