Ron Paul Campaign Chairman
By Jim Babka
Kent Snyder, Ron Paul's campaign chair, will be my guest on the Downsize DC Conference Call today (Sunday).

The occasion? Well, there are two things.

First, the Iowa straw poll is coming up in just under two weeks. What are the campaign plans? ...expectations?

Second, an online writer speculated that Congressman Ron Paul's presidential campaign was provoked by a call from Karl Rove who wanted the Congressman to run in order to undermine the Libertarian Party.

Now, it should be noted that the online writer suggested a day or two later that his column was designed to make another point -- namely that conspiracy theories are stupid. But he's written about the Paul campaign at other times and suggested that it was a net negative for libertarian causes, so it wasn't immediately obvious to all of his readers that he was kidding or making some other point.

And it appears, that for some, it's still not obvious. And this writer is not alone in publishing this kind of opinion. Is Ron Paul hurting or helping the cause? And just how did this campaign start?

We'll ask the man who was there at the genesis of the Paul campaign, Kent Snyder, these questions, as well as yours . . .

If you call 1-800-259-9231. Preference will be given to callers, but you can also email me at -- CALL at DOWNSIZEDC dot org.

This show, which is sponsored by and Gun Owners of America, broadcasts live at 4:06 PM Eastern (3:06 PM Central, 2:06 PM Mountain, and 1:06 PM Pacific).

It's on a few small market stations. However, the best way to listen is online at

If you listen, you'll hear questions that won't be asked anywhere else. You'll learn something new. I hope you'll join us!
