I couldn't imagine any politico writing the stuff that's in that newsletter,even if Dr. Paul wasn't running for President it would be political suicide for someone of his stature to write something close to that blatant...what a load of crap!Anyone with any real honesty and sincerity will see that it's been planted to discredit him,otherwise they don't have anything on him...A kindergartener could have done a better job.

I want you all to imagine if these letters had been published under Obama's name and had his signature on them, but instead of being racist against blacks, the letters contained anti White remarks.
ATS would have a field day.

The best part is they're not even true.
Paul has said over and over that not only did he not write them, but he didnt even know about them until 10 years after they existed.
If such is the case how do you explain his signature at the end?
Ron Paul under fire for racist newsletters
Any other politician and the masses on ATS would be calling for blood in the streets.
I disagree with enough of Ron Paul's political ideals to be lukewarm to him at best, add to that the rampant schizophrenic hypocrisy that seems to be manifested throughout his internet fan-base and he has lost my interest.
Sadly, the sheep that may just be looking at Paul for the first time will think otherwise. Thats the whole reason behind this story. To steer the sheep back to the herd.
Aside from the sheeple line getting worn to death, in light of some of the recent public commentary if I were a Ron Paul supporter I would think twice about the specific implication of accusing others of a herd mentality in this context.
People in glass houses and all that good stuff
WASHINGTON - Dr. Ron Paul, a Republican congressional candidate from Texas, wrote in his political newsletter in 1992 that 95 percent of the black men in Washington, D.C., are "semi-criminal or entirely criminal." He also wrote that black teenagers can be "unbelievably fleet of foot." An official with the NAACP in Texas said the comments were racist and offensive. Dr. Paul, who is running in Texas' 14th Congressional District, defended his writings in an interview Tuesday. He said they were being taken out of context. "It's typical political demagoguery," he said. "If people are interested in my character . . . come and talk to my neighbors."

You clearly don't know much about Ron if you think he's a racist. I'm just going to leave it at that because it's pointless to argue with someone such as drunkenparrot who clearly has already made up his mind. Either way, there still is no other person in the run for potus that is even close to being worth our vote. If nothing else, Paul wins by default.
Who's arguing? If you are comfortable supporting a political candidate without all the facts then more power to you.
I could really care less as I don't believe that Ron Paul is remotely electable however if you are denying the very real possibility that Ron Paul has made a lot of extremely questionable racial comments over the years it would seem that you are the one who may not know much about Ron and are very possibly deluding yourself into believing he is something that he is not.
