Ron Paul is a gynecologist who has delivered more than 4,000 babies and has never wavered on his pro-life position. It's who he is.
Ron Paul, the man from Washington with no scandals, has been married faithfully to the same woman for 45 years, loves America with a passion and is the only true statesman in my lifetime. Here's Ron Paul's Dirty Secrets - short video
Second Amendment - Never waivers on it.
"Congressman Ron Paul is the leading advocate for freedom in our nation's capital. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Dr. Paul tirelessly works for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies. He is known among his congressional colleagues and his constituents for his consistent voting record. Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution. In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the “one exception to the Gang of 535” on Capitol Hill.
"Ron Paul was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine, before proudly serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s. He and his wife Carol moved to Texas in 1968, where he began his medical practice in Brazoria County. As a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology, Dr. Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies. He and Carol, who reside in Lake Jackson, Texas, are the proud parents of five children and have 17 grandchildren."
Congressman Paul is a gifted writer. His columns which should be read by all Americans are here. These deal with every issue today that concerns Americans from all walks of life.
Congressman Paul is the only member of Congress who strictly adheres to the U.S. Constitution and the limits placed upon Congress regarding legislation. This has made it somewhat confusing for voters to fully understand what that means and has led to great misunderstanding - with the corrupt media (including cable), fostering outright lies about Dr. Paul's position on issues. This is especially true regarding the Tenth Amendment and the "war on terrorism," these undeclared, unconstitutional, immoral wars of destruction and much more.
This is a must watch:
FIAT EMPIRE: Why the Federal Reserve Violates the U.S. Constitution
"This Telly Award-winning documentary features presidential candidate RON PAUL (R-Texas) and NWVs Dr. Edwin Vieira, Ph.D., J.D. from Harvard
"Find out why some feel the Federal Reserve's practices are a violation of the U.S. Constitution and others feel it's simply "a bunch of organized crooks." Discover why experts agree the Fed is a banking cartel that benefits mainly bankers and their corporate clients as well as a Congress that would rather increase the National Debt to $9 trillion than raise taxes. Find out how the corporate media facilitates the partnership between the Fed and Congress and why it fails to disclose what's going on. Lastly, find out how the Federal Reserve Member Banks are owned and controlled by an elite group of insiders."

This is a speech Ron Paul gave on September 21, 2001. It will change the way you look at what has happened and how the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan could have been avoided saving thousands of Americans lives and hundreds of thousands of lives of innocent people in those country. Always remember: war is big business and business is booming.
SHAME ON THE RON PAUL SUPPORTER FOR THIS:
This video clip of Ron Paul has a very important message which he delivers in a very concise manner on the National ID, amnesty and the NAU. However, it is ruined by whoever the jackass is that inserted photos of George Bush giving the finger. Not only is this tasteless, it provides fodder for the corrupt media to label everyone as nut cases who support Ron Paul. It also belittles Ron Paul's magnificent message of freedom and liberty by cheapening it with this type of childish presentation.

Iowa Demos Swing Toward Ron Paul?
Huge turn-out for Ron Paul in Iowa:
"Ron Paul Speaks to 1,000 in Iowa. DES MOINES, IOWA – Presidential candidate Ron Paul held a rally today celebrating life and liberty at the Hy-Vee Hall in Des Moines, Iowa. The event was held immediately after and next door to a Republican candidates forum sponsored by the Iowa Christian Alliance and Iowans for Tax Relief. Dr. Paul was the only GOP candidate excluded from the forum, so his campaign organized an event of its own. Despite being planned in less than a week, Dr. Paul’s event single-handedly outdrew the other forum and its six participating candidates by several hundred attendees."

That's right. Congressman Paul has been elected to ten terms in Congress by Americans in his district. They all elected a "meaningless fruitcake." When are people going to see the compromised, dominant media - including cable for what these vehicles really are?

Fox News Rigs Entire Debate To Savagely Attack Ron Paul - video of debates
How FAUX (FOX) news deliberately lies to readers:
"Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who ignited controversy at the debate with remarks that U.S. policy had invited the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, came in second with 25 percent."
If you watched the debate, you know this is NOT what Ron Paul said at all; he spoke of "blow back." This is a calculated distortion of what Ron Paul said because FAUX was trying to minimize Ron Paul's numbers after the debate. Is this fair?
Yet Another Fox News Smear Job On Ron Paul
This scathing column cites Ron Paul's biggest campaign donations have come from Google. Really?
Fund raising sources - As of September 30, 2007
What I found here is this: http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/contrib.asp?id=N00005906&cycle=2008
If you look at the Fund Raising Sources linked above, Ron Paul's donations break down as:
2007-2008 Source of Funds
The scathing column cited above is beyond
words. The author
claims: "The fact is, though Ron Paul himself is no threat to anyone or
anything, his campaign is on a track that is very dangerous for America
conservative movement in particular. Although he is highly unlikely to
anything, his campaign is increasingly likely to cause real trouble for
legitimate Republican nomination process....
"At first, I assumed, and had even written, that Ron Paul's financial support was coming from the Libertarian wing of the Republican Party. Then I was corrected by former Ron Paul aide and founder of the Libertarian Republican Caucus, Eric Dondero, who also founded MainstreamLibertarian.com and hosts blogtalk radio show Libertarian Politics Live. In an interview with Dondero, he emphatically complained; “Please refrain in the future from using the label "Libertarian Republican" in describing Ron Paul. Call him what he is: Some sort of populist leftwinger.” Dondero continued, “Since 9/11 Paul has become a complete nutcase conspiratorialist quasi-Anti-Semitic left-wing American-hating nutball.”
And, this is how its done: scorched earth politics. Sling around completely unfounded smear labels like "quasi-Anti-Seminitc." It is to be expected. It will get much, much worse.
In the end, Americans going to the voting booth shall be the ones to decide who they want for president, not what some party hack tells them. Your vote is your vote and you should not be intimidated or led by anyone else. If you choose Clinton, Giuliani, Obama, Paul or any of the others, then you accept the responsibility of your vote.Current numbers for this cycle here: www.ronpaul2008.com
