Just saw this on Drudge. I'm a Paul supporter and have been since early this year. I started looking at the candiates, went to his website and read
through his beliefs and positions on various issues.
I had to go back several times because I thought that this has to be some kind of joke. Surely, nobody in Washington actually DOES what they say they
will do. Surely, nobody in Washington actually retains their MORALS and INTEGRITY.
Mind you this was well before any primaries or all the hype that has since followed.
Going by what I read in the article, the dinner was put on by the 'Republican Alliance'? I'm guessing that they support Fred Thompson or perhaps
this was a dinner to highlight one of the *chosen* candidates of the Republican party?
But, here you have a straw poll open to the public, where anyone can buy a ticket for $5 allowing them to vote after the dinner/raffle. But, because
it was obvious that Paul supporter's might outnumber the folks attending the dinner, they cancel it? Why, because the chosen individual for that
night, Fred Thomson, wouldn't win? Welcome to the new democracy folks. I find it hard to believe, even with clear example of censorship like this,
that people still want to support the same "business as usual" candidates that are out there. You really think Hillary or Obama or Giuliani or
McCain or Romney or even Hucakabee will be any different? This country needs a new direction altogether, one that returns us to some solid principles
that this nation was founded on.
Frankly, I'm getting tired of all the crap and name calling that Paul supporter's get. Do I vote in online polls? Sure I do. But, I only vote once.
I'm not like the guy who voted 80 times for Mitt Romney (where you had to buy a ticket), when you should have only voted once. Yet, we're the bad
This is garbage. I hope the Paul campaign jumps on this as well as the recent headlines about Iran and it's nuclear program. How many times now has
Paul said that Iran isn't a threat, but we hear Bush time and time again warning us of the danger of Iraq and it's secret nuclear program.
I'd bet that if Paul were for the war on terrorism, he'd be a top tier candidate in a heartbeat.
