Just a few Ron Paul links:
I don't know if my readers have heard about this yet, but Rep. Paul has proposed a Constitutional amendment which would end birthright citizenship.
H.J. Res. 46: Ron Paul's proposed amendment to the Constitution
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to deny United States citizenship to individuals born in the United States to parents who are neither United States citizens nor persons who owe permanent allegiance to the United States.''
This is an issue that gets too little attention from our politicians and the crowd of candidates. Kudos to Ron Paul for addressing it.
And here,
Stupid Party
Kara Hopkins writes about the reaction of the GOP to Ron Paul's candidacy -- didn't I predict it? Much of the vituperation is coming from the Republican side:
It was a dangerous night in South Carolina: the ten candidates for the Republican nomination gathered, and a debate broke out. Damage control was swift. Party elders rushed to excommunicate the instigator. Pundits howled, bloggers convulsed: "moonbat on Kool Aid," "crackpot," "cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs."
But for all that pious fury, a candidate few Americans had heard of owned the next day�s headlines. Ron Paul had committed the sin of truth�and the reaction revealed much about the party that shunned him.
[...] It�s come to this. The party once known for its sobriety wants to be lulled with stories about evil forces and immaculate heroes. Prudence yields to utopianism, intellectual combat to blind thuggery. Gone are the wisemen who cast long shadows and wrote great books. Lost too is the Right�s old default that distrusted power and those who want it, replaced by a vision of the irreproachable state.''
And James Ostrowski gives us the Ron Paul Revolution Halftime Report
...I said that the Ron Paul campaign could be a political earthquake. The clues are all there: young people and people previously not politically active are forming the core of his support; he is drawing support from the left and the right; Democrats for Paul groups are starting up; crowds are building and lies and smears are bouncing harmlessly off Ron Paul like so many bullets off Superman�s chest. In his recent media appearances, Ron is in what great athletes call "the zone."
What makes an earthquake is pent-up energy suddenly unleashed with tremendous force. A lot of problems that can only be addressed in a Jeffersonian framework of peace and freedom have been festering for too long in Hamiltonian America. A lot of people have been waiting a long time for a Jeffersonian to run for president and they�re going to make the most of it.
"There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures."

What Ron Paul's run means
...Ron Paul has aired a revolutionary message which has sparked the imaginatons of the American people, a message that the powers that be cannot stuff back into the bottle. Paul�s ideas may well spark new interest in the real meaning of the nation�s founding documents and principles�and who knows where that will lead? ''
