Ron Paul

Why is Ron Paul helping Romney?

I have been saying this (see linked article) ever since Ron Paul went after Newt for "draft dodging" during an early debate. It made no sense to me, because, being the same age as Romney, and having grown up in Michigan at the same time as Romney... by the accepted definition of draft dodger at the time, Romney fit the definition.

Paul is not too stupid to know that Romney dodged the draft, and yet declined then and declines now to lay a glove on Romney.

This is bound to make some Ronulans very, very upset.

Ron Paul's First Class Flights

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has been spending large amounts on airfare as a congressman, flying first class on dozens of taxpayer-funded flights to his home state. The practice conflicts with the image that Paul portrays as the only presidential candidate serious about cutting federal spending. (MORE)

What Do We Know About Ron Paul's Roots

I wanted to know about Ron Paul's male ancestors. The sentence from Wikipedia "At age 5, Paul worked with his brothers in the basement of the family's home, checking hand-washed milk bottles for spots" got me thinking. So I went on, and looked for the census records of his father and mother. I estimated his father was born around 1905 since at age 5 (1940) Ron Paul had older siblings. Sure enough the 1930 census had Howard Caspar Paul as being born about 1905.

Short & sweet (article).

You just gotta love the guy.

and p.s. to any lurking media types and other Ron Paul "dismissers"....

Yeah - we all hear you saying that if Dr. Paul wins Iowa, it doesn't count, bleah bleah bleah.

I say if Romney, a liberal, wins New Hampshire, a liberal state, it doesn't count.

Ron Paul's High Profile Critics

In this case I am referring to Sean Hannity and Bill Bennett. I don't know Hannity's background, but have always considered him a moderate, not a conservative. He's not too knowledgeable on history, and if someone like Smedley Butler ("War is a Racket") (i THINK Butler was a general, but not certain of WWI rank) were living today, Hannity would not likely have Butler on his program.

Anyway, having got wind that Hannity had Bennett on his program and they proceeded to trash Ron Paul, I thought about Bennett's fall from public grace, and found this great article on Bennett:

Gingrich tried to unseat Ron Paul in 1996

Gingrich is not a conservative, was never a conservative, and NEVER WILL BE A CONSERVATIVE.

He's a political hack, almost entirely lacking in scruples. And the mainstream media loves him for exactly those reasons. They are terrified that a real conservative might win the GOP nomination. And they KNOW Ron Paul is going to do well in Iowa.

Ron Paul in 4-way dead heat in Iowa (Bloomberg poll)

First of all, I finally got to watch a debate on television, and my suspicions were confirmed. Rick Perry, for instance, said something all Americans should hear, and something most Americans agree with. It was to the effect that if he were President, ALL countries seeking U.S. aid dollars, would start at ZERO. They would have to make their case as to why American taxpayers should send them one dollar. Did you hear any of that in the "recaps" on MSM tv the next day? I didn't. New Gingrich basically agreed with Perry. I didn't hear that on the next-day recaps either.

An interview with Ron Paul

My favorite radio host(sorry Fred) Mike Church interviewing Rep. Ron Paul this past weekend. This is one of the only people you will ever see give congressman Paul a fair interview instead of treating him like some old nutjob. Very insightful Q&A.

Ron Paul on AC360

Sherrod Brown is for Bernanke and against us!

I joined the Campaign for Liberty's "No Audit, No Bernanke!" and called and emailed Senators Voinovich and Brown to vote against the miserable and treacherous man. So far I've gotten a lousy response from Brown where he weasels out of doing anything for the American people or against Bernanke. He deserves a pink slip!

[Emphasis mine throughout]

Dear Mr. Ben-Ariel:

Thank you for sharing your views on the Federal Reserve Transparency Act.

What happened to Ron Paul's campaign?

Whatever happened to Ron Paul's campaign, which seems to have disappeared? Here's one answer: the media in this country buried it. For a look at the power of media persuasion and its ability to focus our attention on whom they want us to look at, check out this clip of the relative popularity of the candidates from another perspective.

HERE is a statesman

Ron Paul, the only clear-headed statesman in the US Congress, was also the only vote against a House resolution strongly defending how Israel has countered Palastinian rocket attacks by smart-bombing the Gaza Strip. More than 100 Palestinians and three Israelis have been killed since last Wednesday. Before you get your underwear in a knot, consider this in Paul's own words.

Paul won't back McCain, even if he's nominated

Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, secured more major endorsements on Monday, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and evangelical leader Gary Bauer. But there's one vote he shouldn't count on, from fellow presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul.

Ooooooof! Good one, Ron Paul.


Story Highlights

  • Ron Paul newsletters from 1990s include rants against blacks, gays
  • Paul's campaign says the newsletters weren't written by him
  • One newsletter calls Martin Luther King Jr. a "pro-Communist philanderer"
  • Another says 1992 LA riots ended after blacks went to "pick up their welfare checks"
  • If Kucinich wins nomination, Ron Paul could be his veep

    Call it the liberal-libertarian ticket, where left meets right and Democrat Dennis Kucinich picks Republican Ron Paul to be his vice president.

    Kucinich, the Cleveland congressman running in a longshot bid to become president, suggested it himself today.
