Just Google Ron Paul and racist letters. You will find scans of some that were found in libraries. It's a well known part of Ron Paul's career. He

Sure, it's also well known that Lewl Rockwell was the Ghost Writer for that newsletter and did it to create controvercy in order to boost sales. Does
this make Paul racist in any way? Incompetent or did he just trust the wrong people?
I only decided against Paul myself yesterday for the reason I mentioned. I give him the benefit of the doubt on his earlier career and I'm also open
to the idea that people do change over a lifetime. Where others tend to see flip flops, I see people maturing and changing while being honest about
it. I'd hope all leaders evolve over time.
So, you trust a man who is a career flip-flopper because you feel he's mature enough to come out NOW...When he's running for POTUS and say he was
wrong? Jeez man, the parole board interviews these type of people every day!
Odd since Paul is getting lots of airtime and is in the news almost daily. I watched him interviewed a few hours ago. He's getting plenty of
attention. He must be on an MSN program multiple times a week.
Yes he is Blaine. But your perception of how MSM is covering Dr. Paul is wrong. There is a huge difference in being interviewed a few times a week by
news show hosts and actually what they're reporting. What's been the story of the past couple months? Hermain Cain and his alleged sexual behavior!
Newt's rise to the top!
How the hell does Newt rise to the top when he didn't even have a campaign office in New Hampshire until a week or so ago and is just opening one in
Iowa? Seems like he wasn't even serious about the bid until what?
Why isn't MSM reporting on the ISSUES?
Hey man, you're entitled to your opinion. But you need to see the bigger picture sometimes instead of relying on the MSM news and a quick Google
Here's what I posted about why I like Dr. Paul in the Ad Thread...
Like I've said before, the reasons I like Dr. Paul are not only on the issues. I agree with most of what he says and I'm skeptical but hopeful he's
right on others. If anyone can say they agree with him on everything, I'd say you're either full of it or need your head examined. But he is a man of
his word. His political history speaks for itself. He's been preaching the same message for years. He's predicted most of what's gone wrong with this
country both economically and in foreign and domestic policy.
I've always admired him for taking the high-road and not resorting to ads like this. But after actually seeing the bias against this man that happens
every day and the people who the GOP and MSM put on a pedistal for the neo-cons and brainless as the next savior against Obama made me sick. And I'm
sure Dr. Paul grew tired of it also.
Dr. Paul just strikes me as a very honest man who really cares about this country and not only the people who’ve been hood-winked by the banks, Wall
Street, The Fed and big government but the general direction in which we are headed. Can anyone really say they feel we will survive another four
years of status quo?
I’m over forty and was never a fan or follower of any politician before I found Dr. Paul. In fact, I hated politics! But after researching this man,
I wish I knew of him earlier. I trust this man is unlike any other who’s run for POTUS in a long time. Find me a better man to turn this mess
And to keep this On-Topic...Forget about this silly little debate. It's not even being aired or on the GOP debate schedule as far as I can see. IMO,
they are looking for reaction and will turn this into an Anti-Semite issue once people start with the blowback and someone will do or say the wrong
thing and they'll use it against Dr. Paul.
Ron Paul is a big boy. Let him and his campaign handle it.
