I checked what Ron Paul had voted for and voted against during his years in office and I have to say some things where good, yet there where negatives
votes on many healthcare issues and other things.
Did you by chance read all the addendums that were attached to those bills?
Don't feel bad, most of the lawmakers admit they don't read the entire bill either beofre they vote.
I was stunned to read in one of Pauls’ newsletters as he writes about the poor who couldn’t afford healthcare, Paul said if you didn’t have any
money to pay the doctor bills when he was young you could always barter, or ask your neighbors or family for help. I had the feeling this man was
out of touch with reality because today you cannot barter with doctors to pay for your healthcare, perhaps Ron Paul was demonstrating that you could
just walk in the doctor’s office with a couple of chickens or perhaps a cow who knows. G-d knows asking for help from my neighbors would never
happen because very few ever stayed very long in their rented homes.
Family, from what I read and have experience today it is not the same as it was 35 years ago, families used to take care of one another now it is
every dog for him or herself, we live in a very self-absorbed society.
Ron isn't out of touch at all. Your youth isn't a fault, however, I recall just 10 years ago trading my financial skillset for the skills of a
carpenter, electrician, and contractor to help build a family members home for a fraction of the normal costs.
Small towns still help one another. I really feel sorry for the youth of today that do not know how to live in a community.
Today's youth are not taught how to survive in groups and communities.
I dropped my support for Ron Paul near the last minute in the 2008 elections, I felt if Ron Paul knew what was in those Newsletters and did absolutely
nothing about them such as to investigate who wrote these articals. Also he should have fired the editors responsible. Apparently it didn't matter
to Ron Paul, I felt a man who made a lot of money from his newsletters and with this kind of beliefs system could be a very dangerous man to hold such
political powers as President. I felt Ron Paul was a threat to people of different race's and religions in our country.
you really should take a closer look at RP and what he has done.
His record is incredibly, impossibly consistent.
No other candidate even comes close.
The man is obviously not a racist.
Actions speak much louder than newsletters written by third parties, and RP's actions clearly show he is no racist.
Yes, I want change, but not the kind that was demonstrated in Ron Pauls’ money making newsletters and the negative groups that supported them.
At this time I am not supporting any candidate for President I haven’t found one that supports all the people.

How about any candidate that will actually UPHOLD our constitution?
You can't be any more "For all the people" than that.
And RP is the only candidate that even acknowledges our constitution.
