TheHill.com headline: “The debate: Paul wins, Bachmann wins, Perry heads for the OK Corral.” Writes Brent Budowsky:
“First, Ron Paul: The great political opportunity for Paul is to be the clear and only anti-war candidate, at a time when war is highly unpopular. I am not agreeing or disagreeing with the policy, just suggesting that Ron Paul helped himself big time championing the anti-war position.”
Ron’s son, Sen. Rand Paul demonstrated with his recent budget proposal that it is practically impossible to actually reduce spending and balance the budget without addressing Pentagon spending. Senators Jim DeMint and Mike Lee agreed with Sen. Paul and eagerly signed on.

DES MOINES, IA – Texas Congressman Ron Paul has won the first-ever online Iowa straw poll, capturing a commanding 44% of the over 6,000 votes cast in an online poll sponsored by Iowa Congressman Tom Latham’s campaign.

AMES, IOWA – August 11, 2011 – Thomas Woods – Once again, Ron Paul distinguished himself in a Republican presidential debate by telling Americans the truth, answering the questions he was asked, and refusing to treat his countrymen like ten-year-olds who should be spoken to in bumper-sticker slogans.
On the economy, everyone talked about lower taxes, cutting spending, and a balanced budget – the usual boilerplate. Only Ron Paul sought to explain why we have recessions in the first place. Only Ron Paul mentioned the critical role of the Federal Reserve System in blowing up the bubbles that have popped in America over the past decade. Only Ron Paul explained that the monetary system we have, whereby money can be created out of thin air whenever the political class wants it, is a recipe for the very kind of disaster we are living through right now.
