Now Forming: International Partners In Peace (IPP)

Now forming the International Partners in Peace (IPP).
Fellow Ron Paul supporters from other countries please watch this video.

We are attempting to form a collection of images and videos of worldwide supporters, but we need your help.

Here is what I'm looking for:
Pictures or Videos should include one or two supporters holding a Ron Paul sign or with clothing that says Ron Paul on it.

Please take the video or picture at one of your country's landmarks holding the sign up for proof you are there.

Please send me a private message if you have posted a video of you or other supporters from another country.
Include: If Youtube Video the URL, if picture I will give you my email to send it to, if there is a quote from a supporter give me your native language and then a rough translation.

The reason I bring this up is because there are skeptics out there that don't understand that the notion of peace, freedom, and liberty are universal.

And that because the world is smaller than before, that Ron Paul support has massed even in other countries!

Thank you,
Long live peace.

Ron Paul '08 (more)

Editor's Note: The Freedom Fellowship and The Ron Paul Peace Train - which was just formed yesterday - are proud sponsor/member/supporters of this effort!

The Message is the Same - Vote for Ron Paul

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Dr. Ron Paul

Simply by adhering to the constitution, both Dr. Paul and Dr.MLK Jr. spoke of equality and against unjust wars.

We shouldn't judge by the color of ones skin, but the content of their character.

We shouldn't be spreading democracy through the barrel of a gun.

Dr.MLK jr. was constantly monitored by the FBI. As an attack to dismantle the message he was preaching the IRS bankrupt Dr. MLK jr and they have for many civil rights leaders and those preaching free thought.

Dr. Ron Paul has had such an attack from those that claim he is a racist. All it took was a insider writing on Ron Paul's newsletter and a corrupt journalist (paid off by the GOP) intentionally misquoting Ron Paul.

Now, Ron Paul is fighting to abolish the IRS, take on the Federal Reserve, and destroy Income tax. He fights for our constitution and civil liberties granted within it.

Vote for Dr. Ron Paul '08

The Message is the Same
Income tax means the government stakes claim on your life, that the money you make doing work somehow belongs to the government. That the government grants you your liberties and freedom.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was one of the greatest speakers in our American history. Few can claim similar conviction, emotion, and master of the word.

Again, like always, I invite all comments, questions, criticisms.
No Spam

Vote for Ron Paul '08


Enjoy (before those socialists tell YouTube to delete this file - they don't let me use the things that I am paying for in taxes!!!)!
Translation (sorry for possible mistakes):

It's going to be not only the longest but also the most original campaign in the history of the United States. Mainly because of the candidates for the White House which have discovered a new way of getting to their electorate. Instead of TV - they post their spots on the Internet. About the effects of the fully multimedia and interactive campaign - Piotr Kraśko.

It's not the beginning of a carnival but the longest presidential campaign in the history of the United States and perhaps it is the first time that the Americans will vote one way not the other because of the things they will have found on the Internet.

0:45 In this debate, those who were asking the questions were not the journalists anymore, but the voters through the Internet. "Soon the journalists will not be needed. The voters will ask the candidates about everything themselves, on the Internet."

0:55 It turns out that the Americans have the same doubts about their politicians as the voters in other parts of the world. "During the election everybody promises a lot and when they rise to power they don't realize anything from it because they explain that someone prevents them from doing it. Why should we believe anyone of you that you'd be different?"

1:11 That is the question that the Internauts have considered the most interesting. "How will you explain the fact that 80% of the Californians have elected Arnold Schwarzenneger Governor because they'd believed that he - being a cyborg - would save them from a nuclear extermination?"

1:28 This is exactly how, since 200 years, all the presidential campaigns in America have been looking like. Perhaps this is one of the latest in which rallies like this one actually matter - and every next will take place not on the streets, not on TV - but on the Internet.

But for the candidates it may mean a lot of trouble since nothing is more popular on the Internet than videos which humiliate (ridicule) and discredit the candidates.

1:51 The most popular on the Internet is a video in which John Edwards - one of Democratic Party's candidates - for three minutes combs his hair before an interview. The majority of the internauts came to the conclusion that he more likely fits for a model (female model) than a president.

2:04 The most active supporters - on the streets as well as on the Web - has Barack Obama.

2:18 This is a video clip full of adoration for him which has been recorded by one of his admirers.

2:28 This is one of the oddest spots. This candidate has stood motionless for three minutes and merely looked into the camera. It was so weird that it became one of the most willingly watched spots on the Internet.

2:40 Enthusiastic voters will probably always dance on the streets but the influence that these demonstrations will have on the results of the elections is going to be lesser and lesser. The Americans are beginning to believe that you are not a proper voter - unless you
are a proper internaut... Piotr Kraśko, the News, South Carolina.

Ron Paul and the War on Terror

Ron Paul and the War on Terror

August 6, 2007

by Szandor Blestman

Nearly six years ago, on September 11th, 2001, a criminal act occurred in New York, New York. It was broadcast around the world. I remember that on that day I called my mother and told her to turn on the TV while I could only listen to the radio because I was at work. I remember telling her that we were at war. It was a very frightening day I’ll never forget. Many people will never forget that day. A couple of days later President Bush declared a war on terror. As of this moment, it looks like a war that will never end.

The question arose as to why these people would want to attack us. The answer, according to President Bush, was that they hate our freedoms. They are jealous of us. If we take President Bush at his word, then the terrorists are winning the war on terror. They have already managed to get us to relinquish some of the freedoms they so hated us having. What was one of the first things our legislature did after the terror attack? They passed the Patriot Act. Have you read the Patriot Act? Neither have I, because it’s so long and full of legalese. How anyone could have read and understood it in the short time our legislators had to do so is beyond me. I have read parts of it, though. I know that it infringes upon some of the rights that the constitution guarantees us will not be infringed upon. It tramples all over the fourth amendment which reads: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” The Patriot Act allows the FBI to come into your house without permission, while you’re not there, and go through your things without a warrant. I don’t know about you, but that sounds more like the KGB than the FBI to me. After the Patriot Act came a host of other laws granting the police power to violate our rights. The terrorists managed through a single criminal act to get us to turn our country into a police state.

Now there are warnings about another imminent terror attack. Secretary Chertoff has a “gut feeling” that another attack is about to take place. What would the purpose to such an attack be? Well, the purpose of any terror attack is to terrorize. It is to make the people scared. It is to frighten the populace. What would we do if such an attack took place? How would America react if a horrific event took place causing massive casualties? Would we allow even more of our freedoms that they hate so much to be taken from us? Would we allow the police to start putting people in jail because they protest or question the government? Would we let the current ruling class stay in power if they decided to suspend elections due to the emergency? Would we quiver and cower like scared little children and pray for the government to help us, allowing armed, militant police on every corner as they stop and check us and demand to see our papers anytime we want to go somewhere? Would we gladly submit to having chips implanted under our skin so that we could be easily identified as God fearing, good Americans if that is what was asked of us? Would that be the new freedom? Should such a thing come to pass, the terrorists would have nothing to be jealous of anymore. In fact, should this come to pass, the terrorists could end up having more freedom than us. After a few months of tyranny, government crackdowns and round ups, and having to ask for permission from the government for our most basic needs, we might be the ones that are jealous. At that point, the terrorists will have basically won the war. Our freedoms will be gone, and they will have nothing more to be jealous of. Or maybe I’m just paranoid, but should we really take such a chance?
Seems to me a better strategy would be to demand more freedom. If that’s what the terrorists are mad about, if that’s what they want to destroy, then we should stand tall and bravely demand we be allowed the freedom to forge our own destiny. Rather than cowering in fear and letting terror take over our lives, we should courageously demand that we not be looked after like little children while we go about our daily lives. We are adults that can take care of ourselves and we need to let our politicians know that. We need to stop living in fear. Aside from this, I don’t really believe that the terrorists fighting us are too worried about our freedoms. I doubt very much they are jealous of us. More likely they just want to be left alone. More likely they just want to go about their daily lives without being asked for their “papers” everywhere they go. More likely they don’t like foreign troops in their country telling them what to do.

Ron Paul understands this, as he has publicly stated, and so does the CIA. No other candidate wants to end the war on terror. They want to maintain the status quo and thus their power. Ron Paul wants to bring our troops home. He doesn’t want to commit them to a never ending war with no goals and unlimited casualties. Getting the troops home is how we win the war on terror. By doing so, we remove the terrorists’ reasons for attacking us. By doing so we start the process of restoring our freedoms. By doing so we open the door to once again doing business with the world in an honest fashion and not at the end of a barrel of a gun. By bringing the troops home we can also use them to patrol our borders and help minimize the threat posed by undocumented foreigners entering our land. We don’t need our own people spied upon. We don’t need our police milatarized. We need strong leadership that understands that freedom is a reward unto itself, and that free people should not cower in fear whenever criminals threaten our way of life. We need lawmakers that understand that the best way to lead is by example. We need to keep America a shining light of freedom for the world to see. That is Ron Paul’s message, and we should listen.

A Letter We Can Write To The Mayor Of Ashville, NC

See the letter below.........

Two American citizens were assaulted and arrested on private property by an officer of the law for displaying an American flag in protest of the war and the state of the country. Witness and police accounts disagree on the actions taken during the incident.

Can't you spend 2 minutes and $0.41 for a stamp? Just use my letter.

City of Asheville: Mayor
70 Court Plz
Asheville, NC 28801

Dear Mayor Bellamy,

I am writing regarding a recent situation in West Asheville that I read about which I believe was very poorly handled by the police.

The situation of which I am talking is written about in this article:

Police invaded two citizens' (Mark and Deborah Kuhn) home by breaking through glass inside a door, proceeded to assault Mark and Deborah Kuhn, and threatened to taser them. This all occurred because of a complaint about a flag hanging upside-down outside their house that had several political statements pinned to it.

I am shocked and appalled by how this situation was handled. The police had no right to try to arrest these citizens and break into their house; they had broken no law as far as I know.

You may think that the easy way to remedy this poorly-handled situation is to simply reprimand or lay off (temporarily or permanently) the officers involved in this case.

But I think the problem could run much deeper than just these two officers in this one case. The manner in which this situation was handled strongly suggests a complete disrespect of citizens' rights, freedoms, and privacy by your law enforcement branch.

I would like to request that you carefully reevaluate your training programs for the law enforcement branch in your city, ensuring that you are cover items of this manner so that poorly-handled cases like this one do not happen in the future.

Thank you,

Your name
