I could not be more delighted, as I share Murray's positions on many issues of critical importance. I have gotten to know him quite well over the past several months, and he is one of the few people who challenges the go-along-to-get-along mentality of most elected Republicans, and courageously calls attention to fundamental problems.
This year's Presidential cycle has, thanks to Ron Paul and Murray, made me realize that if the United States today had the Federal Budget of barely more than a decade ago, we would not need to have an income tax. Where is all the money going? It's not enough for Republicans to settle for only half the new spending that the Democrats propose - who is out there saying that the least compassionate way to help those in need is to entrust their care to the Federal Government?
Well, Murray is. And that gives me lots of confidence, because we are headed for bankruptcy as a nation if we don't "change". That's why I will be working for Murray in an official capacity to help him earn the GOP nomination, and eventually to defeat Frank Lautenberg in November.
Forgive me if my usual style of blogging changes slightly in the coming months - you will likely see less long articles, and more juicy snippets of information related to the ongoing political dynamics not just in Northern NJ, but across the entire Garden State. Remember, at the end of the day, politics - like blogging - should be fun.
Thanks for reading and check out Murray's launch email below. (continued...)

Subject: Ron Paul endorses Murray Sabrin - Ron Paul Revolution expands to New Jersey
Today, I received the endorsement of Presidential candidate (and friend of 25 years), Dr. Ron Paul, in my campaign to become the next United States Senator from New Jersey (see the press release below). We share the same dedication to honor the United States Constitution, which calls for limited federal government, as well as the Founders' commitment to protect Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. The United States Senate could use a little more Life, Liberty and certainly some more Happiness – and that is what I intend to provide!
I am very excited about leading the Ron Paul Revolution in New Jersey as we focus our immediate efforts on Primary Day, February 5th for my dear friend.
I encourage you to visit my website http://www.murraysabrin.com/ and consider supporting this effort.
Thank you in advance your consideration and support,

Murray Sabrin: The Gold Standard of "Ron Paul Republicans"
The Ron Paul Revolution expands to New Jersey with Dr. Paul endorsing US Senate candidate
Jersey City, NJ – Presidential candidate Ron Paul, the Republican Congressman from Texas who inspired a massive nationwide outpouring of grassroots support and record-breaking fundraising, has endorsed his friend and colleague of 25 years, Dr. Murray Sabrin, for the GOP nomination for US Senate in New Jersey.
"Murray has devoted his entire career to promoting limited government and personal freedom, and I am proud to have known him and worked with him for more than 25 years," said Paul. "He will not only be an outstanding representative of the people of New Jersey, but the greatest advocate of liberty and constitutional principles the US Senate has seen in decades. I am delighted to endorse him and encourage all Americans who believe in freedom to support him enthusiastically."
"I am very proud to receive Ron's endorsement and to lead the Ron Paul Revolution in New Jersey," Dr. Sabrin stated. "We will continue to focus our efforts in New Jersey towards Ron Paul's victory on February 5th, my victory on June 3rd, and our combined victory on November 4th."
Sabrin and Paul met in 1982 at a monetary conference sponsored by the CATO Institute, and have been friends ever since. Dr. Sabrin credits Dr. Paul for harmonizing a strong defense of the pro-life position with the limited government principles that both men espouse.
Dr. Sabrin was one of the earliest supporters of Ron Paul's presidential campaign in New Jersey, which has a February 5 primary date and is a winner-take-all battleground that looks to be in play given the faltering campaign of its one-time frontrunner.
