TWO MAJOR endorsements came for the hero of liberty today:  A Illinois Congressman and a parish (county) GOP chairman in Louisiana:

Veteran Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Johnson of Urbana has endorsed Ron Paul for the Republican presidential nomination ahead of next week’s Illinois primary.


“I am honored to call Ron Paul my colleague and most importantly my friend. I have always admired Rep. Paul but my respect for this great man’s leadership grows more all the time. He is one of the most principled men I have ever met,” Johnson said in a statement.

Let’s stand with Congressman Johnson, send him a nice email:  Here

In another endorsement, we have a parish GOP leader coming out for Paul:

2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul was endorsed today by the Chairman of the Livingston Parish Republican Party, Jason Stern of Walker.

Livingston Parish’s main population centers include Albany, Denham Springs, French Settlement, Killian, Livingston, Port Vincent, Springfield and Walker, comprising about 130,000 people.

In endorsing Ron Paul, Mr. Stern mentioned he was doing so as an individual and not on behalf of any organization or its members.  He issued the following statement:

“My family supports Ron Paul because throughout his career he has shown consistent regard for the Constitution and the God-given rights and liberties it protects.

“Dr. Paul’s pro-life, pro-family values are near and dear to our hearts and his no-nonsense approach to government and foreign policy are attractive qualities for the Executive Branch.

“If America is going to return to greatness, now is the day to act.  Electing another quasi-conservative whose goal is to ‘do big government better’ is a great reason to strongly support Dr. Paul’s candidacy.”

I can only hope and pray more Southerners tonight will vote for Ron Paul.  It might be an interesting question as to why more Southerners do not vote for Paul.  We may discuss that in a future blog.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
