I've personally had enough of this issue.
These newsletters are trotted out every damn election cycle because it seems the only thing they 'have' on RP.
He has spoken about this issue so many times over and over.
And 99% of the newsletters themselves which have been archived on the web either:
1) Don't even have Ron Paul's name on them
2) Sound NOTHING like Ron Paul
3) If at worst case WERE written by Ron Paul, don't sound "nuts" compared to most of the crap people say on the street on a daily basis
The 'controversial' parts don't even sound like him, the main parts sound close, but not his writing style.
AND I HAVE READ HUNDREDS OF WORKS BY RON PAUL.
I personally think it was a 'close friend' of his, but that's another story altogether.
Can we leave this alone?
There is no way I've gotten a vibe that Ron Paul is "racist". I have been to Meetups, online chats, PAC groups, message boards, you name it, it TEN
FREAKING years as a Ron Paul supporter and have not heard anything close to racist rants.
I hear more racist crap on the average message board, on YouTube, going to the corner market, than I have in all the Libertarian or Ron Paul forums
I've been to.
I can't speak for all of us, but we aren't collectivists for the most part. But sure, racists are in practically EVERY group you can possibly join.
I know it may be shocking but I'm sure if you joined your local KNITTING society you would hear more racist rants than on a Ron Paul forum.
So can we give it a rest? It was 20 years ago, and since then the man has never been recorded, taped, not even a scribble on a piece of paper found
that proves 'racism'.
I suggest we move on.
