Ron Paul: A Texas Thorn in Rick Perry's Side

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/art...de_111342.html

Came across this interesting article about Paul and Perry. Mentioned in it is Debra Medina, a former TXGov candidate (who I voted for during the most-recent election) and current Paul supporter.

It's a shame that the mainstream politicians get all the attention, while the underdog (one like Paul) who has some pretty good ideas backed with no-nonsense bluntness is getting very little...at least for now.

Though I'm not settled on any one specific candicate yet, I am tuning in to Paul more and more each day...

He's definitley unwaivering in his anti-federal, pro-individual stance, and apparently has remained constant for many, many years.

For the dissenter who says he's un-electable, he's only "un-electable" until enough people do the research and realize he has potential...

Yes. They were instructed by the mass media to feel that way about him and they follow directions very well.

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Electio...about-Ron-Paul

"...There’s a long interview with "The Daily Show” host in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, and in it Mr. Stewart holds up the libertarian GOP presidential aspirant as an example of something that’s unusual in US politics: consistency."

My, my, my -- isn't that interesting?!?!

Paul is unelectable.
Now, I would rather have him in office than the one we have now.

When did he say that?

Gotta clip?


What Ron Paul wants is to bring the troops home and let them stay in their air conditioned homes with their families.

The mass media doesn't even have to keep pushing it. They've trained the people to keep saying it over and over and over again for them.
