A quick update and an urge to checkout Ron Paul

Just wanted to let everyone know that I haven’t forgotten about this blog, it’s just that business has been really good in my freelance web consulting practice.  I’ll be posting more articles soon.

In the meantime, I wanted to urge everyone to check out Dr. Ron Paul, the Republican congressman running for President.  His campaign is rocking, but they still need a lot of support.  There is currently a movement to try and get 100,000 people to pledge to donate $100 on November 5th for a total of $10m in a single day.  They have about 14,000 pledges so far, with 5 days left.  You can sign up at thisnovember5th.com

If you’re not yet familiar with Dr. Paul’s campaign, here’s a few key facts about him:

  • He is a 10-term congressman from Texas.
  • He is an OB-GYN who has delivered over 4000 babies.
  • He served in the Air Force as a flight surgeon.
  • He has never voted to raise taxes.
  • He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
  • He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
  • He has never voted to raise congressional pay.
  • He has never taken a government-paid junket.
  • He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.
