These speakers are familiar with the language used by the target audience and can relay Dr. Paul's message to them better than he could himself. Any help YOU could give me in promoting these speakers to new media, talk radio and the MSM would be hugely appreciated. Feel free to share my contact information with producers, editors, reporters and show hosts, and I'll line em' up! zakrevolution@yahoo.com 206-501-9221

There are 3 key coalition groups that we need to win over the GOP - and when we do it will be a Ronslide from there on out!

1. National Defense (Represented by Veterans For Ron Paul 2012)
Colonel Doug Macgregor (ret) http://douglasmacgreg...­ is a decorated combat veteran, the author of four books, a PhD, and a spokesman of the Veterans for Ron Paul 2012. http://www.youtube.co...­ The Veterans For Ron Paul organized a military/veterans march on Washington D.C. http://www.youtube.co...­

Adam Kokesh, http://www.adamvsthem...­ veteran and co-founder of Veterans for Ron Paul 2012 is also available for interviews representing this coalition. http://www.facebook.c...­ Adam is planning for a bigger march on the RNC this August http://www.youtube.co...­

Michael Scheuer, former head of the CIA’s Bin Laden unit http://en.wikipedia.o...­ and author of Imperial Hubris http://www.amazon.com...­ has endorsed Ron Paul and is available for interviews. If Colonel Macgregor is like an Abrams tank brigade gunning down neocon foreign policy idiocy, Michael Scheuer is an atom bomb!

2. Bible (Represented by Christians For Ron Paul) Pastor Brian Jacobs of the Metroplex Family Church http://metroplexfamil...­ who used to work with Rev. Billy Graham, is a spokesman of Christians for Ron Paul, http://www.facebook.c...­ and has been sending 1,000’s of DVD’s to fellow Christian leaders. It was Pastor Jacobs that introduced Rev. Graham to President George W. Bush during the 2000 election.

Minister Derrick Grayson, (aka TMOT) is also a spokesman of Christians For Ron Paul and has been making hard hitting and entertaining videos in support of Ron Paul. http://www.youtube.co...­

Dr. Walter Block http://www.walterbloc...­ is a founding member of Jews for Ron Paul and is also available for interviews.

3. 2nd Amendment (Represented by Gun Owners For Ron Paul) Gary Marbut is the President of the Montana Shooting Sports Association http://www.mtssa.org/...­ and is also spokesman of Gun Owners For Ron Paul 2012. http://www.facebook.c...­ Gary has been featured on the Glenn Beck Show and other nationwide media for his work protecting the 2nd Amendment. http://www.youtube.co...­

To liberal, independent and libertarian media I’ve been promoting Robin Koerner. Robin is the founder and editor of watchingamerica.com, also writes at the Huffington Post and has started the “Blue Republican” movement, which is asking Democrats and Independents to support Ron Paul. You can read his article that started it all here - http://www.huffington...­
The facebook group and website that has grown from this article can be found here - http://www.facebook.c...­ http://www.bluerepubl...­

And last but definitely not least I’ve been promoting Jun Dam to libertarian media. Jun is the founder of Grassroots for Liberty SuperPAC, is also behind http://rp2012.org/...­ (check out their petition drive!) has set up a phone for Ron Paul from home program, has hosted contests, and helped get supporters to Iowa. http://www.youtube.co...­ Jun rocks!

Even if you don’t have personal media connections, just sending out emails/faxes and making phone calls is a huge help!

To Victory! Ron Paul 2012!

I have a lot of love for Ron (and especially Rand) Paul. Yet as a matter of Liberty I worry he gives too much power to Government by allowing it arbitrary preferences for Christianity. I have read a great deal of constitutional law and history (including the 1st Amendment and the Non-Establishment Clause) and I have yet to find ...

"You can have any religion you want run the Government so long as that religion is Christian." Christians like Ron Paul have some powerful opinions I admire, but as a matter of citing authority for Government policy and law I do not like seeing the Bible or Christianity cited. imho.

As for pleasing Republicans, is it possible by not addressing core issues with their party, they may be the fading party, with Libertarians ascending? I think it possible great fidelity to Libertarian ideals could be a party strength.

Are these types of discussions within the purpose of this forum? I'd like to see and participate in more Libertarian oriented discussion wherever it may be found.

Ed,

Like you, I'm not sure if this type of discussion is within the purpose of the forum, but here is a link to a forum that I just found and will be regularly visiting: http://www.libertaria...­

However, I at least wanted to answer your thoughts. I don't think Ron Paul will allow the government to run by their own views, in part Christianity. His core belief, in which is instilled in most Libertarian views, is 'Live & Let Live'. Just because Ron Paul is a firm believer in the Christianity faith, he won't allow the government to run under those beliefs. By doing that, they're, in return, allowed to tell us how to live our lives based on their own religious beliefs. That completely goes against 'The Golden Rule'.

I believe the Republican party has gotten segmented from their views. This is why you have confusion amongst the Republican party, as their not sure if they should side with the Tea Party, if they should be a little less conservative, or if they should be somewhere in the middle (Moderate). With this confusion comes also the confusion from the American people on what values do the Republicans hold dear to themselves. You have the off-the-wall thoughts from the likes of Todd Akins who believe women can abort babies if it's a legitimate rape. From that, people have to wonder if this is what the Republican party is truly all about and this is their thoughts as a whole.

In saying that, that's where I believe the Libertarian party has some room to grow and show the American people that the values they hold dear to themselves isn't lost within the Republican party. That, the American people, as a whole, are in a dire need for another party that truly wants to help them, not their own special interest groups that put them into power. The sooner the American people understand what the Libertarian party stands for, the sooner they will begin to realize that the Libertarian party is 'For the People, By the People'.

Until then, as Ron Paul stated, we will continue to have the 'status quo'.

Awesome. Thanks for your great link and great points. " 'Status Quo' is just Latin for 'The Mess We Are In.' " -Ronald Reagan
