Black this Out, October 19th
This is going to be a big week for Ron Paul. Yesterday he just unveiled his new budget proposal, dubbed the “Plan to Restore America,” which will cut $1 trillion in the first year of his presidency, abolish five federal apartments, end the wars, cut taxes, balance the budget in three years and last but not least, reduce the presidential pay from $400K to $39K, which is the median income per worker in America. For most libertarians, that’s a good start. Hopefully abolishing the IRS and the income tax will come after that. But in all seriousness, Paul is one of the only presidential candidates who is taking a critical look at our fiscal situation and has a plan that takes steps to reduce our debt burden immediately. Most candidates want to tinker with small details (ie. no more earmarks!) or just give empty rhetoric, but Paul has a solid plan to get the economy out of the crapper and restore our freedom.
The other big event this week is Ron Paul’s “Black This Out” money bomb on October 19th, which plans to be the biggest fundraising day for Paul all year. The name is meant to be a sarcastic reference to the way Ron Paul is being treated by the media, who have been following a golden rule: pretend Ron doesn’t exist. Many online blogs are promoting this Money Bomb by putting black censors boxes over their avatar’s faces (such as the image above), or striking out Ron Paul’s name in blog or twitter posts. The grassroots have been sick and tired of the intentional disregard of Paul as a serious candidate, despite him winning most online debate polls and many straw polls such as the California GOP and Value Voter poll in DC. His coverage out of all candidates has been dead last, despite his polling numbers having him consistently in third place, or second place is certain early primary states. This new study by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism has vindicated our complaints.

Dr. Rand Paul, candidate for US Senate in Kentucky
In honor of his father’s Ron Paul’s 75th birthday, Rand Paul’s campaign is having a birthday money bomb today. Please check out his campaign’s website here: http://www.randpaul2010.com Dr. Rand Paul is an opthomologist who is running for Senate in the blue grass state, Kentucky. As a liberty candidate, he crushed his neo-con elected opponent in the Republican primary and is currently in the lead in the polls against the Democratic candidate. To win this election, he’ll need to continue having all the support that he can get to fight back against the plethora of attack ads from the liberal media. If we can get him into Congress with his father, the Pauls will be a liberty force to be reckoned with and to be feared by all big government statists.
Here are just some of the reasons Rand Paul wants to run for Senate, from his own email:
- I will never, ever vote for a taxpayer bailout of a private industry. Whether it’s big banks, automakers, or any other industry — you succeed or fail on your own.
- I will not vote for an unbalanced budget. I will not vote for a tax increase. Ever.
- I will fight for new rules like a Balanced Budget Amendment and Term Limits.
- I will not take ANYTHING off the table in the fight to balance the budget. Anyone who says something like they will “freeze non-defense discretionary spending” is blowing smoke at you and hoping you won’t notice. That would balance the budget — MAYBE — in about 80 years.
- We have to keep our promises to seniors and keep our country strong, but every area has things that can be cut. Every agency has things that are duplicative or that could be done better or cheaper.
- I will propose and force a vote on an Enumerated Powers Act, to force Congress to point to the part of the Constitution that justifies their bills.
- I will fight for the Bill of Rights. Democrats often love the 4th amendment. Republicans the 2nd. I will fight for them all, which means fighting for your free speech, gun rights, and civil liberties. Laws that infringe on ANY of these make the federal government more powerful, and we cannot continue to allow that.
- I will not allow our troops to be the world’s policeman, and I will force a vote on a Declaration of War if any President seeks to commit our military to battle.

National Freedom Day is a United States observance on February 1st honoring the signing by Abraham Lincoln of a joint House and Senate resolution that later became the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. President Lincoln signed the Amendment outlawing slavery on February 1, 1865, although it was not ratified by the states until later.
Appropriately, February 1st is also the birthday of Adam Kokesh, a brave patriot in the freedom movement who’s running for Congress representing New Mexico’s 3rd district. To honor this day, Kokesh’s campaign is throwing a money bomb to help Adam kick out the democratic incumbent for the seat. Adam is a true man of the people and has no connections to special interests, thus the need for all the financial support he can get from the grassroots. To make things even more daunting, New Mexico’s 3rd district is one of the largest congressional districts in the country and is the size of Kentucky and Connecticut combined! Compare this to California’s 8th district, which encompasses just the city of San Francisco. A map below shows its size.
Adam’s campaign is running on a tight budget and needs all the help it can get to fund transportation across this enormous region and to run primary campaigns in the 16 separate counties. Please consider donating your time or money to his efforts to ensure more freedom candidates in Congress. You can find Adam’s campaign website here at: http://kokeshforcongress.com.

Today there is a money bomb for Rand Paul’s campaign and you can donate on the main website here http://www.randpaul2010.com/. For those who don’t know, Dr. Rand Paul is an opthemologist who is running for Senate on the Republican ticket in Kentucky and is the son of Ron Paul. The significance of chosing today as the money bomb is that it is the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, a very important event in our history that eventually lead to the Revolutionary War. Also, this was the date two years ago when Ron Paul’s presidential campaign broke the online one day fundraising record by having a money bomb that brought more than 6 million dollars in, putting his campaign on the map. So far Rand Paul, who has never had a career in politics, has surprised the establishment candidate Trey Grayson by not only out fundraising him, but also pulling ahead of him in the polls. Electing him to Senate will not only be a big blow against the status quo, but it will be a big victory for the cause of freedom.
