No. His father was, though. But if he were, Masons would would know about it. There would be other Masons he
had sat in lodge with who would come forward. There would be articles written about him in Masonic magazines.
If Ron Paul is a free mason, then all the free masons should vote for him right?
Not at all. Why would we? My political views are a full 180° from some of my brethren. That's one of the reasons we don't discuss religion or
politics in the lodge... they're divisive topics. But I could be ultra-liberal, and my brother could be ultra-conservative and we can stil meet
together in lodge and get stuff done. Doesn't mean we'll ever support the same candidate.
If they don't even know he is a free mason how effective is his free masonry on the elections? If free masons don't vote for him does that
mean he's not a free mason?
Again, there would be no correlation. But for the sake of humoring your argument, let's take it all the
There are, at the moment, about 1.4 million Freemasons in the United States.
There was about 60% voter turnout in the 2008 election, so if that followed through, that would mean around 840,000 Masonic votes cast.
If they were all for the same presidential candidate, that would probably not turn the vote around unless the election were already as close as the
2000 Gore/Bush election.
But honestly, I don't see him making it out of the primaries again.
