BJ’s poll workers give him an update on the latest happenings during early voting, how voters are responding to his message, and the low-down, dirty trick one of Price’s supporters played.
The Lawson for Congress team is hard at work, making sure that B J Lawson , aka “Ron Paul, Jr.”, gives incumbent Democrat, David Price, a run for his money.
We are making this happen, and this last week of early voting will be critical.
First, thank you to everyone who contributed to take our campaign to this level, and signed on to help call voters and raise needed funds.
However, we’re at a critical decision point. The Constitutions have been going faster than expected at the polls, and we have a fantastic new mailer that needs to go out by Tuesday.
You know it’s getting close when a 20-year incumbent needs to attack his opponent, and his political ideology, head on. Anyone who’s in office for that long should be able to stand on the merits of his own record, rather than launching attacks. Here is an excerpt from a letter that he recently sent out to his supporters.
Dr. Paul laments Greenspan’s departure from the free market principles he once stood for and what effect the November election will have on the future of the Republican party.
This “commercial” by PBS’s Nightly Business Report would be far more amusing if wasn’t so close to reality.
In case you can’t read the fine print at the end-
This offer depends on the willingness of the Chinese government to continue buying U.S. government debt. Terms and conditions depend on the whim of Congress and may be changed without notice. U.S. Taxpayers may not apply.
The discussion between Dr. Lawson and Congressman Price at the TROSA forum on October 13 was an interesting one, to say the least. The Durham Herald Sun wrote an particularly fascinating report on the discussion between the two candidates on drug-related issues:
Lawson and Price sparred over issues including health care and law enforcement, especially enforcement of drug laws.
When I started my campaign last November, the national debt was tipping the scales at $9.3 trillion. Today it is over $10.1 trillion.
To add insult to this obvious injury, our Senate and then House just passed a juiced-up bailout package that includes an additional $150 billion of random acts of fiscal irresponsibility beyond the $700 billion revolving credit line to be used by our Treasury to buy questionable assets from troubled banks.
The vast majority of Americans were against this bailout, and for good reason — it is not going to work. Economists and those who understand the banking system understand that the administration’s plan will not fix the underlying problems of trust and solvency. Instead, it simply allows our Treasury secretary to pay above-market prices for troubled assets to bailout out foreign and domestic banks. It creates no jobs, gives no significant relief to struggling homeowners, and severely threatens our sovereign credit rating.
This is just the first of 10 videos that show the debate between BJ Lawson and David Price in it’s entirety. They are all worth watching and we can be proud of the excellent job BJ did representing the principles of truth and liberty.

The Department of Justice came under fire this past week for its subpoena of Associated Press phone records without any notice to the news agency or targeted reporters. While Attorney General Eric Holder claims that the action was a response to a national security threat, it was actually part of the Obama Administration’s continuing war on whistleblowers and, as many see it, a shot directly at the free press, which is protected by the First Amendment.
The controversy has brought new attention on the need to protect Americans from this sort of government overreach. on Thursday, Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), and Jared Polis (D-CO) joined together to introduce H.R. 2014, the Telephone Records Protection Act, which would protect all Americans from this sort of government overreach:
