This is huge, how come nobody has put it up yet?
Congressman Ron Paul, who represents the 14th District of Texas, announced on January 11 that he will be seeking the GOP presidential nomination in 2008.
[quote]HOUSTON – Rep. Ron Paul, the iconoclastic, nine-term lawmaker from southeast Texas, took the first step Thursday toward a second, quixotic presidential bid _ this time as a Republican.
Paul filed papers in Texas to create a presidential exploratory committee that will allow him to raise money. In 1988, Paul was the Libertarian nominee for president and received more than 400,000 votes.

How many people here know who Ron Paul is and recognize the significance of this campaign? This is basically the last hope to save the American Republic from economic collapse. It is not a matter of him winning (highly unlikely) so much as getting his platform into the national discourse. This has the potential to stir up a major shitstorm all over the country. It is going to be very interesting to watch his campaign.
