Oh stop with the incredulous act, I'm quite sure if ten or fifteen years ago and asked 1000 Americans about the Ron Paul letters you'd be lucky to get a handful that could even tell you who Ron Paul was much less about any letters.

Ole' Ron sounds like your crazy uncle at a family gathering after he's had too much to drink.
The only reason anyone wants Ron Paul to run third party is
because democrats know they can't win with Obama in a two
man race, and are hoping for a split (the only way he might
win).

The Ole' Ron/crazy uncle is getting really old, and it's not
original....

If your an Obama supporter, name one thing that **** up
has done, that deserves him a second term....

A week ago, if you asked 1000 Americans what the capital of
North Dakota was, they wouldn't know the answer.

That is why our present media has a field day. You wouldn't
know the difference between journalism and propaganda if
it bit you in the face.

“These aren’t my figures,” Paul told the Morning News. “That is the assumption you can gather from the report.”

Nor did Paul dispute in 1996 his 1992 newsletter statement that said,”If you have ever been robbed by a black teenaged male, you know how unbelievably fleet of foot they can be.”

It wasn't his newsletter, he didn't write the inflammatory articles and he didn't make the statement you posted. But other than that, good post

Your information is entirely incorrect. The person who said he read it was an unstable, ex aide that was fired.

Because his supporters want freedom and liberty? What a dumb post.

So now apparently trying to go for the edgy and "sensationalist" bit in an interview by pressing someone for a non-issue topic they've hashed over and explained why it had nothing to do with them for years now is "being a good journalist", according to this piece. And even though the newsletters aren't his, it's still appropriate to headline them as his newsletters.

This is a sure sign that Paul is moving into the limelight and Democrats see him as a real threat to be Obama's challenger (whom he would stomp): They've got the media blasting this guy at every turn.

He is the ONLY threat to Obama, ALL the other candidates were set up to fall so that Obama could win the re-election even with only 30 something percent approval ratings.

The only one up there that is not a establishment insider and bankster shill is Dr. Paul. He is the only real candidate running in the GOP race, the ONLY one they don't control.

No, because of this ...

Isaiah 5:20
"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter."


They are afraid because their time is coming, the gig is up, one way or another, even if Dr. Paul isn't elected president. The cat is out of the bag, and the worms are out of the can, there is no going back to completely disinformed America ... Change is coming, in a very BIG way.
