Today, from the desk of Dr. Ron Paul: [Please share widely]

“America is over $16 trillion in debt. The “official” unemployment rate still hovers around 8%. Our federal government claims the right to spy on American citizens, indefinitely detain them, and even assassinate them without trial.

Domestic drones fly over the country for civilian surveillance. Twelve million fewer Americans voted in 2012 than in 2008, yet political pundits scratch their heads.

It’s not hard to see why, though.

To go along with endorsing a never-ending policy of bailouts, “stimulus packages,” and foreign military adventurism, the establishment of neither major party questions the assaults on Americans’ liberties I’ve named above.

As my campaign showed, the American people are fed up. Many realized heading into Tuesday that regardless of who won the presidential election, the status quo would be the real victor.

GOP leadership is now questioning why they didn’t perform better.

They’re looking at demographic changes in the United States and implying minorities can only be brought into the party by loudly advocating for abandoning what little remains of their limited government platform and endorsing more statist policies.

My presidential campaign proved that standing for freedom brings people together.

Liberty is popular – regardless of race, religion, or creed.

As long as the GOP establishment continues to not only reject the liberty message, but actively drive away the young, diverse coalition that supports those principles, it will see results similar to Tuesday’s outcome.

A renewed respect for liberty is the only way forward for the Republican Party and for our country.

I urge all my Republican colleagues to join the liberty movement in fighting for a brighter future.”

  1. Reblogged this on Overmanwarrior's Wisdom and commented:
    Yes, failure to act will mean the end of the Republican Party. They must adapt, overcome, and win instead of clinging on to what worked in 1980, when most people thought Reagan was nuts. The Republican Party then wanted George Bush over Reagan, which would have been stupid. You have to be in the front of the train of thought, not in the rear end. 12 million voters is a lot of voters who didn’t like the message and just stayed home. Personally, I’m supporting Rand Paul. Get behind him now, or its over forever. Hillary will start running for her run next week I’d say.

    1. Hillary is pure evil. She makes Obama look like a child in comparison. Did you see how she just stepped down to take the fallout over Benghazi? The future is ours if we adapt and adopt the liberty movement. All the young libertarian conservatives and all the Tea Party people need to rally behind the constitution and take back the senate in 2014 and make Rand Paul president in 2016. It’s the future or a bust!
