Tea Party 07 a huge success

typewriter2.jpgTea Party 07, the one-day money-raising effort for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign, was a huge success. More than 59,000 people gave an average of $102 and raised more than $6 million on Sunday, December 16, the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. This is the record for a single day of fund raising in the history of American politics and it received very, very little press from the “main stream media.” Big shock.

The one candidate who honestly wants to reduce the size of government and threatens to upset the establishment apple cart is being ignored in an attempt to marginalize his candidacy. This is both good and bad. It’s bad that Congressman Paul is not getting fair coverage. However, it can be a good thing is this way: As his campaign continues to grow as a true “grass roots” campaign his success will expose the irrelevance of those in the main stream media who are trying to resist his message.

And just to underscore the importance of Congressman Paul’s message of liberty — please consider the following:

These are the very kinds of governmental abuses that Ron Paul stands against. All of the other candidates don’t mind the state wielding this kind of power, as long as it is wielded in a manner consistent with their views.

Bumper sticker of the day:
