Ron Paul PresidentIn the rise and fall of the recent Republican reign of power these past decades, the goal of the party had grown to be only that of gaining and maintaining power -- with total sacrifice of the original Republican belief in shrinking the size of government.
Most Republicans endorsed this view in order to achieve victories at the polls. Limiting government power and size with less spending and a balanced budget as the goal used to be a "traditional" Republican value. This is what Goldwater and Reagan talked about. That is what the Contract with America stood for.
The opportunity finally came in 2000 to do something about the cancerous growth of government. This clear message led to the Republican success at the polls.
Once the Republicans were in power, though, the promises faded, and all policies were directed at maintaining or increasing power by trying to whittle away at Democratic strength by acting like big-spending Democrats.
The Republican Congress never once stood up against the Bush/Rove machine that demanded support for unconstitutional wars, attacks on civil liberties here at home, and an economic policy based on more spending, more debt, and more inflation -- while constantly preaching the flawed doctrine that deficits don't matter as long as taxes aren't raised.
But what the Republican leadership didn't realize was that ALL spending is a tax on middle-class Americans through price inflation and that eventually the inevitable consequence is paying for the extravagance with a financial crisis.

The campaign hopes the day long event will "send a message to the Republican Party," Paul campaign spokesman Jesse Benton tells the Tribune-Review. "There is a growing surge of people out there just craving" for a return "to traditional American government, limited government that places personal liberty first and places an emphasis on personal responsibility and essentially gets out of the way after that," Benton said. "The buzz we get from supporters is that they are very eager to come to St. Paul and very eager to send a strong message."
McCain spokesman Jeff Sadosky declined comment. Paul has won 35 convention delegates, but was not invited to speak in St. Paul because he refuses to endorse McCain, according to his campaign. Paul's plan to stage his own event is bad news for McCain, said G. Terry Madonna, a political scientist at Franklin & Marshall College.
"Conventions are about demonstrating unity and purpose and showcasing the nominee. They are media events made for prime-time TV. Any distraction from the central message of the convention is not helpful," Madonna said.
Ron Paul announced his founding of the Campaign for Liberty.
This is our time, the Campaign for Liberty is our voice. It's time for a new meetup.
Do not tolerate the destruction of Freedom, that took 233 years of bloodshed to create, for our nation!!!
We are now just days away from Campaign for Liberty's Rally for the Republic in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This promises to be a significant event in the history of our movement and our nation. For three days, the grassroots activists who have made Dr Paul's efforts successful will gather during the Republican National Convention to spread the message of constitutional government.
Chuck Baldwin, the conservative alternative for President, Constitution.
While Obama is a clear obmination. , McCain has a record of pushing the liberal record. As Ann Coulter says, McCain will leave the Republican Party in shambles.
The next 2 Congressional elections are likely to have major loses to the GOP. If Obama were President, people would wake up and get fired up, They will go to sleep under Republican President McCain.
