Ron Paul in The Washington Post

Who would have believed that The Washington Post made a pretty fair article about Ron Paul?

I check the news every single day for Ron Paul stories and honestly it's getting pretty difficult to find one that correctly lists what his beliefs are on immigration, foreign policy and among other issues. The mainstream media really hates Ron. They go out of their way to misquote him, twist his words, or base an entire article on what someone else thinks of Ron Paul rather than evaluate Ron Paul on his actions and words.

Well we got a great article, which may be read on The Washington Post website.

The only thing I find "wrong" with the article is the amount of money he has raised for his campaign, but I am not sure if those new numbers were officially released yet. It's implying that he has only raised 300,000 since the last three debates.

However, on June 7th stated that a source close to the Ron Paul campaign has said their contributions were coming in by the millions. Now it may be that Ron Paul is simply not letting his earnings out of the bag quite yet and has chosen to downplay them as much as possible until they need to be revealed. We will have to wait to find out!

Taking Ron Paul Seriously

I came across this remarkable column written by Matt Hutaff. He discusses Ron Paul's views and his unfair coverage in the mainstream media.

Please take the time to read it.

Spreading the Word: Just Tell 5 People

Everyone who reads this should vow to tell at least 5 people a day about Ron Paul. Whenever you go to Starbucks in the morning ask the girl if she knows about Ron Paul. Or if you get packages delivered to your home tell the UPS or FedEx person. Little things like this is what Ron Paul's campaign has that the other big names don't! Since the other candidates have that immediately name recognition, most people have already formed opinions on them. This makes it hard to talk to them and most people will completely write you off if you start talking about a democrat and they consider themselves a republican. However, whenever you say Ron Paul most Americans do not know who he is nor his party affiliation and probably don't even know he is running for President!

This gives the grassroots an excellent chance to inform those people on his views rather than letting the mainstream media do the talking. Let's face it the mainstream media doesn't think very highly of Ron Paul! Rather than wait for them to see his name on the TV we can plant that first seed into their minds. Hopefully then they will take it upon themselves to do some more research.

You only have to touch on a few things that most people will agree with you on. These are a few things I would bring up, but it will always depend on the person. He wishes to end the Iraq war now, not tomorrow, or in a year. Right now. He believes in small government that we control rather than the government controlling our everyday lives. He wants to remove the income tax and cut spending to reduce our debt!

Hopefully at the end of a 2-3 minute conversation, you have planted a seed. This is all that Ron Paul needs to win this nomination. Since his message is full of compassion and honesty I can't see how anyone could disagree with this man.

Don't Fall For Fred Thompson

It appears that the MSM has begun a campaign against Ron Paul. They really are quite scared of his message with the massive influx of Fred Thompson articles.

They are now stating that Fred Thompson is an alternative to Romney, Giuliani, and McCain. He is not an alternative to them. If you are being fooled by the media's attempt at trying to steal votes from Ron Paul, let me give you some quick facts about Fred Thompson.

1). Voting Record-* All voting information is taken from
Voted YES on enlarging NATO to include Eastern Europe. (May 2002)
Voted YES on authorizing use of military force against Iraq. (Oct 2002)
Voted NO on authorizing air strikes in Kosovo. (Mar 1999)
Voted YES on allowing all necessary force in Kosovo. (May 1999)<--Note the flip-flop
Voted YES on welfare overhaul. (Sep 1995)
Voted NO on allowing reimportation of Rx drugs from Canada. (Jul 2002)
Voted YES on increasing penalties for drug offenses. (Nov 1999)
Voted YES on limit welfare for immigrants.
Voted YES on favoring 1997 McCain-Feingold overhaul of campaign finance. (Oct 1997)
Voted YES on banning "soft money" contributions and restricting issue ads. (Mar 2002)

Compare to Ron Paul's Voting Record
Voted YES on disallowing the invasion of Kosovo. (May 1999)
Voted NO on declaring Iraq part of War on Terror with no exit date. (Jun 2006)
Abolish federal welfare; leave it all to states. (Dec 2000)
Voted YES on allowing reimportation of prescription drugs. (Jul 2003)
Voted YES on withdrawing from the WTO. (Jun 2000)
Voted NO on implementing CAFTA, Central America Free Trade. (Jul 2005)
Voted NO on implementing US-Australia Free Trade Agreement. (Jul 2004)
Voted NO on implementing US-Singapore free trade agreement. (Jul 2003)
Voted NO on implementing free trade agreement with Chile. (Jul 2003)
Repeal the gas tax. (May 2001)
Abolish the federal Department of Education. (Dec 2000)
War on Drugs has abused Bill of Rights . (Dec 2000)
Voted NO on making the PATRIOT Act permanent. (Dec 2005)
Voted YES on reporting illegal aliens who receive hospital treatment. (May 2004)
Rated 100% by FAIR, indicating a voting record restricting immigration. (Dec 2003)

2). A quick Google search tells you that he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. This is a very very bad thing. The Council on Foreign Relations wants global government. Perhaps you have heard of the New World Order. Well this group of people are the think tanks behind the agenda. Other CFR members include David Rockefeller, Colin Powell, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Thomas Kean, Bill Clinton, and Paul Wolfowitz. They destroy sovereign nations and want to form the North American Union. They answer to higher ups and will vote for any measure that will further their goals. They believe in the idea that "the end justifies the means".

3). He "used" to be a lobbyist for Westinghouse and General Electric (which owns NBC Television). We do not need another lobbyist in the White House. Didn't we learn our lesson with Dick Cheney giving away no-bid contracts to Haliburton? A company of which he used to be CEO.

4). Linked 9-11 to Saddam as justification to go to war. His quote from a TV Commerical with Citizen United to advocate WAR. He made a TV COMMERCIAL saying we should go to war. That is unbelievable.
"FRED THOMPSON, ACTOR: With all the criticism of our president's policy on Iraq lately, Americans might ask, What should we do with the inevitable prospect of nuclear weapons in the hands of a murderous and aggressive enemy? Can we afford to appease Saddam, kick the can down the road? Thank goodness we have a president with the courage to protect our country. And when people ask what has Saddam done to us, I ask, what had the 9/11 hijackers done to us -- before 9/11?"

5). Served on the legal defense fund for Scooter Libby who was convicted of lying to federal investigators.
"Thompson, who describes himself as a friend of Libby's, is one of the members of the board of his legal defense fund, which is trying to raise $5 million. So far, the fund has taken in more than $3.5 million, an official with the fund said."

6). He supported McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Act and the Shays-Meehan bill. On May 2nd 2003, the courts found Constitutional flaws in the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Act. The other bill Shays-Meehan was also found to be unconstitutional by restricting free speech. On February 12th 2002, the ACLU urged representatives to vote no on this bill. Here is a nice overview of what it really does. Yet Fred Thompson voted yes to both!

Fred Thompson is no different than Giuliani, Romney, or McCain. Don't fall for the Mainstream Media's attempt at pulling votes from a true conservative, Ron Paul. We need to expose this attempt of the media because it is clear they know people are looking for an alternative. Obviously they are afraid of Ron Paul as that alternative since he is not under their control and will not continue their NWO, one world government agenda. Clearly Thompson is working towards an agenda that is not in line with our best interest, which can be seen from his voting record, his past lobbying positions, as well as his membership of the CFR.

Please donate to Ron Paul's campaign here. He needs your support today!
