Is very well on his way to hitting $400,000 in donations today for a money bomb. I think that Ron Paul is going to bring more focus and drive this time as he won't be running for reelection in the House. Which I can tell you is of great pleasure to the Federal Reserve and the rest of Washington. But has Ron Paul started a sub movement that could sweep the elections that come to past maybe not this one but the next one. WIth the Tea Party bringing a big part of his agenda to the for front of the Media in a way that can't be ignored is the Republican party shifting away from where they are today being be Big Government Police State supporting party to being a more Libertarian party? Is Ron Paul changing the Party. I mean just look from 2008 to now many of the Republicans where talking about how we need to stay the course and now they are talking about pulling out. So will Ron Paul go down in history as being the person who started the change that saved the country from disaster? Is Ron Paul on paste to Win the Nomination despite what the polls the Mainstream media have shown where their where only 54 participants? So far Ron Paul has won the debates on the online polls by 10 to 20%.

I just don't think he has nearly enough "Star Power" to pull it off. Not that he doesn't have some decent ideas. If anything, the last election taught us that "Star Power" counts more than the actual competency to do the job.

I think he has enough star power I mean most of the people now days are internet based and well online it is hard to avoid finding a Ron Paul video and the use of the Internet is what helped Obama beat McCain because Obama accepted donations online 24/7 which he got tons of really small contributions. Also depending on where you get your news from if you watch the Business News channels like Fox Business a few shows can't avoid him it is also hard to avoid someone who seems to always get in their and either be ahead of Obama or just behind him within the polls error margin.

"Star Power" really doesn't have to do with polls or how often people see him around. It is just that he doesn't have that particular spark to get people to vote for him.

You obviously don't know much about RP...he has plenty of spark. No he is not a "rock star" with the glits and glam...but I will take substance over superfical any day. We have serious problems and we need a serious person to deal with it.

I don't think he will get the nomination but I do think he will effect the outcome and may even have a say in who does get the nomination.

I wouldn't be so sure. I mean if more people go Republican to vote him the nomination then I think we can do it. Thats what I did I registered Republican to vote in the nomination. I am hoping to get other people to do the same.

Ron Paul no matter what has change the face of politics. He caused the start of the tea party groups. He woke up a lot of people to what was going on and what the average person can do to be part of the political process. I am a little nervous about him not running for re-election for his seat. But it is his decision and I respect it. I do know he has a lot of support out there.I for one have already volunteered to work on his campaign and plan to go all in this election. He has a good message. A lot more people know about him. He has a proven track record. I think he has a great chance of winning the primary and the general this time around.

Well I figured I would share this in the money bomb today at 11:24 PM PST time he has raised $579,976.33 Which is quite good for a single day of fund raising if I say so myself which I do. I am going to do my part not sure if I will be able to volunteer but I am going to be active in getting the word out their so that more people see his message and him.

I think Ron Paul has a lot of good ideas and he has done a lot for the Republican Party, but I do not think he will make it to the presidency in the next election. I never listen to online polls. They are too easy to stuff...

Maybe but a poll that was only done with 54 people and then broadcasting it as being the poll you did online is misleading at best. The poll but Romney as being the winner of the last CNN Debate but not sure how that could be considering he didn't answer a single question. They don't want to use their own online Poll which if you know what your doing you can keep people from voting more than once. And actually they did. You couldn't vote more than one time on the CNN poll. So with Ron Paul having 89% in CNNs own poll then they decide to use another one it is misleading to their audience. Also it could cause them to look stupid later on if Ron Paul makes it to the Nomination. I hope they do nominate Ron Paul as well he is the only candidate that Obama would have a tough time pinning down. But I think the Republicans want Obama in for Four more years.
