Lew Rockwell and Jeff Tucker wrote the Newsletters (with major input from Murray Rothbard and Marc Thornton). Jean McCiver edited them for clarity and grammar out of the Houston office on Nasa Blvd. Ron was merely a figurhead.

But he did read them, every line of them, off his fax machine at his Clute office before they were published. He would typically sign them at the bottom of the last page giving his okay, and re-fax them to Jean to go to the printer.

Eric Dondero, Personal Asst./Travel Aide
Ron Paul, Libertarian for President, 1987/88
Crdtr. Ron Paul for President Exploratory Comm. 1991
Campaign Coordinator, Ron Paul for Congress, 1995/96
Senior Aide, US Cong. Ron Paul, 1997-2003

Paul has some explaining to do.

You need to research instead of biting at the first apple you see. Too many Americans are like that when it comes to politics.

It is funny that the smear campaign has only started after Ron Paul's numbers have gone up and he has been leading in several polls..

Where was this guy in 2007/2008 when Ron Paul was not such a high profile candidate?



LOLZ.

Why would Dondero lie about it?

We know why Paul would lie about it.

Reasonable people could easily figure out that one...unreasonable people claim that fool in our White House is not a racist.

Show me the "church" where Dr Paul sat and listened to the spewing of hateful racist trash for twenty (20!) years then, and only then, will I believe that he is a racist!

It's entirely possible that both Obama and Paul are racists. They seem cut from the same cloth in many ways.

As soon as Ron Paul said he was bringing all the U.S. troops home, Mainstream Media has been trying to portray him as anti-Israel. Especially CNN. Because we all know Israel has the U.S. military fight all their wars for them.

I wont post a link to it, but are we really going to take the word of a guy that has been trashing Ron Paul on his blog and now suddenly claims he know something? If cant see through that then I don't know what to say.
