Hello American Patriots!,
Obviously some people don't know Ron Paul well....he has always polled very high in the Tea Party Movement and now even in general election process for 2012 presidency as America is waking up to the BIG GOVERNMENT AGENDA of both the Democrats and GOP. Just last week in the Iowa straw poll he came in a close 2nd...nearly a tie for 1st with Michelle Bachmann who is another Tea Party favorite. In the 2008 election he receive the largest grass roots campaign contributions other than Obama.
Any simple search on the web from various reputable poll sources you can see what that mass media, Dems, and GOP tends to avoid.
Here are just a few sample links to some recent polls that show Ron Paul is a favorite and a clear front runner for 2012:
Of course the Democrats, Mass Media, and Republicans want to avoid him and dismiss him as they do not want the LIBERTY movement to take their power. That is why they are so afraid of Ron Paul and the Tea Party Movement. He is the only top candidate that is a strict constitutionalist and against any growth in our HUGE government. Just look at his voting record. His positions are are fully aligned with the Tea Party Patriot principles of:
Constitutionally Limited Government
He has NEVER voted for a debt ceiling increase and believes in free markets and freedom across the globe but not by use of FORCE.
As for people scared he will destroy our military or Iran nuclear issue it is non-sense. Our military is now 25% of our bloated $3.8 trillion budget and we will spend $1 trillion this year on "defense". The USA spends close to 50% of all monies spent on military each year in the whole planet!! We spend more than any nation and can destroy the world multiple times over. It is a $$ machine for Republican special interests and military contractors. It is a scam with much waste and excess. GOP always say we risk our safety with 1 penny of cuts. The same argument the Dems use for entitlements or education. Both parties are LIARS. We have over 800 military bases in over 130 countries and it is too much and we cannot afford it. We are past bankrupt. Ron Paul suggests the military be CUT...not ended...just like entitlements. And that we get out many countries and bring our soldiers home. We can easily cut 20% or 30% of annual spending on military and still have adequate protection for USA and the best military by far. That is why many independents and even some Democrats like Ron Paul. The simple TRUTH is we spend way too much $$ on defense.
Ron Paul is a non-interventionist. A Libertarian position that means I will leave alone and you leave me alone. Like the snake that Benjamin Franklin used and many Tea Party flags use...the snake will leave you alone...but if you mess with him he will take you down and not stop until you are dead or he is. He believes nations are sovereign and their internal affairs are theirs to deal with, alone. Ask someone if they feel our Federal government is too involved in our lives, puts too many restrictions and mandates on us? Most tea Partiers will agree the government is intrusive. Then ask them now how do you think a citizen of Iraq or Afghanistan, Pakistan etc... feels that OUR government is so involved in their nations. At minimum make the 130 nations PAY US 100% for our services!!
As for the Iran nuclear issue, our own CIA has reported that Iran is not even close to getting them. But even if they had them now, they would be like many countries that hate the USA that have nuclear weapons. China, Pakistan, North Korea, Russia, etc.. Reagan did not have to go into the Soviet Union because they had nuclear weapons. Iran really threatens Israel. And Israel has enough nuclear (over 300 war heads) and conventional weapons to take out any Middle Eastern country at any time. If Israel wanted to take out Iran's nuclear labs they could do it on about 10 minutes! The USA should stand with Israel morally but we do not need to offer our blood or resources. We should NOT be the aggressor unless attacked by Iran or imminent real threat. Many in GOP want is to start yet another new war with Iran...more death and $$ spent we do not have....lose...lose. We need to EXIT the middle east by supplying our own oil in USA. Israel can easily defend herself. And as crazy as Ahmadinejad is, he is not suicidal....he wants to keep his life and power like all dictators.
The 2012 Presidency is not a horse race. We don't need to support the person with the most $$ bet on them..or the person with the best odds based on some national poll or GOP opinion.
Our nation is in the mess we are in due to BOTH parties. The Dems are for entitlements and unions and the Reps are for military and corporate subsidies...both corrupt and bloated.
So the mass media, Dems, and GOP will keep calling Ron Paul names and extreme....just like many call the Tea Party Americans. If Ron Paul's principles are extreme then I am very glad to be aligned with such values! No he may not win. If the Tea Party Movement does not pick a candidate soon to support then we will end of with a GOP RINO like Perry or Romney. The caucuses and primaries are the most important step to get the right R candidate in. Ron Paul at minimum deserves serious consideration based on OBJECTIVE analyses, record, and principles.
May God help save this great nation and educate the masses to the principles of LIBERTY.
