Ron Paul Spanks McCain

A couple of interesting developments on Dr. Ron Paul's presidential campaign:

Firstly, the Paul campaign announced that they now have $2.4 million on hand, beating out Republicrat-extraordinaire John McCain. Unfortunately, Ron Paul still won't be able to buy the kind of press coverage that McCain gets for free. Also, keep in mind that Dr. Paul still has a long way to go to catch up with the deep pockets of Rudy Giuliani, who has $18 million in the bank, and Mitt Romney, with $12 million, so anything you can give will be put to good use by Dr. Paul.

Secondly, after being dissed by the Iowa Christian Alliance and Iowans for Tax Relief who excluded ONLY Ron Paul and invited the other GOP presidential candidates to speak at their forum, the Paul campaign held its own rally right next door. Despite being thrown together in less than a week, Dr. Paul's event ended up having several hundred more attendees than the other forum with its 6 GOP candidates. Some believe that this event was the biggest rally for a Republican candidate in Iowa during this campaign cycle.

No doubt, despite this good news, the media and the GOP leadership will seek to downplay the significance and chances of the Paul campaign. Apparently, only "we the people" are excited about Ron Paul's candidacy and the chance to restore the Constitution and repair liberty in this land. Let's show the entrenched elites that having the people on your side still matters by getting Dr. Paul on the ballot!
