Ron Paul won in Washington state


I got busy with school and forgot to say anything but.... last week in a very small Republican turnout Dr Paul took 25%, Huckabee got 21% and McCain got 17%. I forgot the rest. It's the first time Ron Paul has "won" a state. Too bad Oregon's primary isn't until April or May. Dr Paul is continuing to campaign even though it is obvious at this point that he has zero change of getting the nomination. He continues because this is his opportunity to speak out and promote a Constitutionalist platform for the future. There is a movement afoot. It is still being discounted and ignored, but it is alive and well and will not wilt due to mockery. Lots of people who were previously completely disenchanted with politics have become excited because of Ron Paul. I am one of those who sees his brand of common sense, and his willingness to discuss ideas, as hopeful for our salvation. Granted, common sense flies in the face of mountains of doublespeak and oceans of money, so there's work to do. But there's hope. He gave me hope. And I'm not the only one.

Navajos for Paul!!!
So, when we were driving across the rez on I-40 east of Flag, I saw maybe... 5 or 6 billboards with Ron Paul all over them, with 'vote for Ron Paul' slogans. I must confess, that aside from your blog, it's the first public display for him that I've seen. As soon as we left the rez, the billboards stopped.

Well that's pretty cool. Driving around OR you see Ron Paul posters along lots of highways. And when I was in TN over the holidays I saw Ron Paul posters there too!

Thanks for the report on Rez politics. It's good to know that the tribe is politically still alive. There's hope for them and for all of us....
