A strong sign that Barr "gets" the new "bottom-up" campaign and fundraising paradigm-- he has hired Ron Paul's webmaster.
After I came out supporting Ron Paul as my favorite Republican candidate, tens of thousands of Ron Paul supporters started coming to my site on a daily basis. Most of them were anti-war, anti-Bush conservatives. At first, I thought they'd be potential Obama supporters. After interacting with enough of them, my read of them changed. They were mostly the people Thom Hartmann describes-- socially more liberal, but extremely anti-government, anti-tax-- and very unlikely to vote Democratic, except for the disaffected former Democrats, who, failing to have Ron Paul to vote for, will probably vote for independent Ralph Nader or Green Party Candidate Cynthia McKinney.
If Barr can meet the hopes of Libertarians and surpass the traditional turnout they have seen, Barr could be one of the factor that turn John McCain's campaign into the rout it has the potential to become... if the Dems don't implode.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
