Ron Paul Would Take Only $39,000 If Elected President !!!
This news is several weeks old.
However, I am a bit dismayed as to why Jesse Benton (Paul's campaign manager) would not have Dr Paul openly (and perhaps aggressively) highlight this
astonishing fact during the debates.
What a startling and shocking challenge it would be if Ron inquired how many of his fellow GOP colleagues would be willing to do the same live on
stage during a nationally televised debate?
What a delightful "tread water" moment that would be for all of the other candidates.
I can visualize the gaping mouths of his opponents as they struggle to come up with an immediate response.
If they answer "NO" they look like they are not REALLY as serious as Ron Paul is about cutting spending.
If they answer "YES" and were elected President they will be in a really tough position if they attempted to back peddle on the issue and would most
likely be "committed" to only a $39K annual salary.
I personally believe that it's a decent idea...but how does one get through to the Paul campaign in order to present the idea to Mr. Benton?
Any suggestions,comments, thoughts or ideas?
