I am twenty eight, a democrat. My folks are too. My father and I will often banter about politics, world events and lately the republican debate spectacle. Even he is starting to get what Paul has been saying for years, and he grudgingly admits that he is a superior candidate... Though it isn't hard to see why when you look at the lineup. Talk about a house divided. ...
I'm glad that you and your father can actually banter about politics. I ask him who he feels he might vote for for president and he tells me he believes none of them are worth it. I tell him I'm thinking that Ron Paul may be a good choice and he tells me he's the worst one. I ask him why he feels that way and he replies that he won't be voting for someone who is racist and anti-Semitic. I ask him where he read or heard that and he tells me to do my own research. I tell him I have and that I haven't seen anything racist. I ask him where to look and he doesn't want to talk about it. I tell him that if he cannot tell me where to find proof of Ron Paul being racist, then he isn't racist. He tells me in a raised voice to drop it and leaves the room.
My dad's a really smart guy, but if the current political spectrum is so uninteresting to him, I wish he wouldn't have left it on such a loaded note and expected me not to question him about it.
Congrats Dr. Paul on your gaining momentum, but seriously, what the hell did do to my dad?
P.P.S. but still ..

Just caught the tail end of the CNN interview on American Morning with Ron Paul. They were attacking him for the newsletter that came out a long time ago in which one of his writers made some racist remarks. It is very amusing to watch them attack him so fiercely on that issue because they have absolutely no ammunition except for trying to paint him as a racist, which he is obviously not considering he has been fighting for equal and fair treatment for ALL American citizens for so many years.
He has clearly stated for a long time that he did not write that article, and pointed out that if you look at all the things he has said in his speeches and all he has done for so many years that it is quite clear that he is not a racist and has actually been one of the few to point out racism in our government policies and actions.
People are really beginning to relate to the message he has been delivering for +30 years and all the MSM can do is try to claim that he is a racist. A truly pathetic attempt at trying to discredit a TRUE patriot and conservative.

If only they would have delved into Obama's background with such energy.
t does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.

It's all a dog and pony show, wooooot ron paul, hooooray for government of any kind.
I think i finally pieced ron pauls place in american politics together, he will be the next president.
Ron Paul arrives at a time when everyone is disillusioned with the state of politics, a breath of fresh air, he brings a message so many people want to hear.
Politics has become so disparate currently hardly anyone could care less about the dog and pony show.
Ron Paul changed that attitude, the youth of today are lifting him high on their shoulders and have begun a grass roots movement that is accelerating.
He will be the next president, ill tell you why.
The way things are at the moment, when a major war breaks out and people are sent draft orders, they would not care a # about them and would no doubt, ignore them, resist them, fight them.
When ron paul becomes president and the war begins, people will forget that everything is pre planned and that the third world war as forseen by albert pike has been on the table for a very long time just waiting for the right circumstances, without ron paul the political respect is not there to have the people acquiesce to government draft.
Ron Paul is the political respect required to have america take a war seriously.
you people are F****D.
