Ron Paul has declared that he running for the 2012 Presidential election. In opinion polls, he is statistically tied in a one-on-one race against Barack Obama... the best result of any Republican candidate or potential Republian candidate. He is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination.
The Ron Paul Revolution began in 2007 in the build up to the 2008 primaries. His main goal of running for the Presidency was, and is now again, to educate the public about the idea of liberty. The grassroots Ron Paul campaign of 2008 started from nothing and built up huge momentum. The idea of liberty was given a great rebirth in the minds of Americans and individuals worldwide who followed the campaign.
After achieving respectable results in the primaries of 2008, Ron Paul withdrew and set up the Campaign for Liberty, which would continue the Revolution and the all-important spreading of his ideas. The Tea Party grew out of an End The Fed rally organized by Ron Paul supporters. There has been a shift in the mindset of Americans in the last four years, in the direction of liberty. So much so, that many Republicans are eager to appeal to Tea Partiers. While some parts of the Tea Party have swayed from the original message of liberty, choosing instead to back un-libertarian candidates like Sarah Palin, Ron Paul's 2012 run will remind Tea Partiers, and everyone else, of the true principles of liberty.
Ron Paul is not starting from scratch this time round. His support has only grown over the past four years. His predictions that America will enter a deep recession have come true. The wars and invasions of civil liberties continue despite Obama's promises to the contrary, just as Ron Paul said they would. If we want peace and prosperity, "we have to change our ideas about what the role of government ought to be," by getting government out of our lives, as Ron Paul so eloquently explains.
Through the Ron Paul 2012 campaign, the liberty movement will be ignited again. The Ron Paul Revolution continues.
