It is great news to hear that Cong. Ron Paul is running for President again.  Steve Kornacki at Salon is excited about the prospect:

The biggest winner may be political junkies, who will probably find the coming GOP presidential debates far more interesting with Paul in them, especially when the subject turns to foreign policy.

I think it is fair to say I am a political junkie.  It would be exciting.  It is exciting; the liberty message that I discovered when Paul first ran for President will arise again.  I did think that Sean Hannity’s coverage of an isolated snowball incident in 2008 was over the top but expected:  the national security conservatives are not going to want to see Rep. Paul do well.

There is hope – a recent poll showed that Ron Paul has huge favorables in Iowa (thanks to Romang at the Daily Paul, a daily site for me until this goes away or Paul is elected!)  Iowa is not associated with the kind of support Paul needs to actually carry the state.  But the grassroots needs to immediately get out and both organize and give money.  That brings me to my next topic:  The May 5 money bomb.  Here is Politico’s take on it:

“The first nationally televised Republican presidential debate in the 2012 election cycle will be held on May 5, 2011 on Fox News. Because of this, it is imperative to showcase Ron Paul as the leading frontrunner in the race. On May 5, 2011, we will hold an online money bomb in support of Ron Paul for President 2012,” organizers wrote on the website.

It is crucial since this will be compared to the money bombs of November 5, 2007 and December 16, 2007 that it have a big day.  it is short notice.  Try to do what you can.  I am not affiliated with the Ron Paul campaign officially or unofficially!  Also we need to unite groups to get things done:  ballot access and advertising.  The climate is MUCH better than the 2007 campaign.  People want to get involved.  Shall we start in Hanover County VA?  I’m in!  We must do what we can or Rep. Paul might decide not to follow through.

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