Strategy From Here

Ron Paul said in his recent email that he will fight on, even though a brokered convention appears unlikely. Why? Because this is a campaign of ideas, those of personal liberty, free markets, and peace. Dr. Paul's presidential campaign is the biggest opportunity to spread these ideas in a long time, and I applaud the fact that's he's willing to lead the effort. So we should continue to support him in his presidential run so he can still have the biggest stage possible to talk about freedom.

On the other hand, he also said he will not seek the presidency as a third party candidate because that would mean losing his congressional seat. Dr. Paul has been the sole voice of liberty in DC for years, and it's imperative that he not lose it now. His congressional campaign website is http://www.ronpaulforcongress.com.

Another opportunity is Ron Paul's friend Murray Sabrin's run for the US Senate. Like Dr. Paul, Dr. Sabrin has been an advocate for limited government and individual freedom for decades, and would provide the freedom movement with a strong voice in the Senate! His campaign website is http://www.murraysabrin.com.

There are other Ron Paul Republicans running for office, including Jim Forsythe in New Hampshire and B.J. Lawson in North Carolina that are well worth supporting. These, and other pro-freedom candidates, are listed at the Liberty War Chest website, which encourages people to support as many pro-freedom candidates as possible.

Last but not least, the message of freedom needs to be spread as far and wide as possible. One organization leading the way in this effort for the past 25 years is the Ludwig von Mises Institute, the research and educational center of classical liberalism, libertarian political theory, and the Austrian School of economics. Help them continue their great work! The president of the Mises Institute, Lew Rockwell, also edits the news site LewRockwell.com, which is also well worth supporting!

The freedom movement has never been just about electing people to political office, but about spreading the message that peace and personal liberty are the best ways to create a better world. Help spread the word!
