Ron Paul 2008: Hope for America

The Ron Paul Revolution is still growing. During the most recent Republican presidential debate in Dearborne, Michigan, October 9, 2007, the MSNBC online poll showed that 86 percent of 2,200 votes were cast for Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).

The poll was taken down prematurely. MSNBC noted that the poll had served its function, that popular support for Paul was indeed a political phenomenon and Paul's passion and ideas worthy of respect. MSNBC also observed that Paul is completely out of step with his party and has zero chance of being nominated to run for president.

News sources expose their allegiances when they openly admit that personal biases justify censoring news.

The "news" is that grassroots support for Paul's bid for the nomination is growing each day because Americans are also out of step with both Republican and Democratic parties; Americans do not want perpetual war and they want the advance of government intrusion into their lives to stop.

Measuring meetups. As of July 20, 2007, 557 meetup groups had formed with 20,820 total members. By the next day, 569 meetup groups had 24,898 members.

As of Sept. 9, 2007, there were 867 groups with 42,566 members; 5,177 Ron Paul events had been held in 706 cities and 17 countries.

Just two days later, Sept. 11, 2007, the numbers had jumped again: 885 groups with 43,765 members; 5,337 Ron Paul events had been held in 718 cities and 19 countries.

There are now 1,019 groups with 56,000 members; 9,337 events have been held in 811 cities and 22 countries.
