Precisely! I know black people that support Ron Paul, Obama, and other candidates. Most are very well informed, but the Ron Paul supporters seem to think that if you don't agree then you do not know. Its an awkward arrogance. Core Democrats and Republicans have a respect (that they wont admit) for each other. Ron Paul supporters and Tea Partiers that I know quote history and the constitution (respectively) as if all you watch is Fox News and MSNBC

Edit:I'm referring to all tea partiers and Ron Paul supporters, not just black americans

Well that's cute because we have NO respect whatsoever for "core" Republicans and Democrats. You're the ones who spent all our money, got us in debt, entangled us in useless wars, and made a mess out of the country.

Look at the date of that paid political announcement (that is what it was of course). At least the one this morning with the dippy blond was made this year. Even if it was today, we all know or should have brains enough to know almost all ads (some are very clever) are paid for and that is all they are.

I don't always agree with you, but I do this time.

What none of these videos address is Ron Paul's position on the 14th Amendment and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Ron Paul's has said on more than one occasion he doesn't support the government bans on segregation as they pertain to private business. Add to that some very derogatory statments Ron Paul has made about Black Americans in the past and you have to wonder how many of these people are REALLY INFORMED about Ron Paul.

You could put all the Black Americans that support Ron Paul in a telephone booth and you'd still have enough roam for the USC, Ohio, State, University of Washington, Grambling State, and Southern Universiity marching bands.

It's just one more reason that Ron Paul will NEVER be President of the United States.

Do you think that there will be widespread discrimination against blacks if that provision were to be repealed today?
