I'd take a bullet for this guy.

I just felt like talking about Ron Paul and a few of the rediculous arguements i'm hearing against him.

Tired of the same old candidate? Ron Paul is the answer. Tired of hearing questions about a politician’s ethics and morals during EVERY election instead of the issues? Ron Paul is the answer. You never hear his name mentioned in these discussions. Why? Because Ron Paul is above reproach. He is the incorruptible. He is the marquis of consistency. He has been yelling fire from the roof tops for over thirty years about big government and the perils of excess government spending. Guess what. His message then is the same as it is now. There is no flip flopping, there is no appeasing a specific voting demographic only to deliver a different message to the next. Don’t like his stance on 9/11? Are you really that concerned over the reasoning of what happened 10 years ago as opposed to what is happening right now, and next week, and the next 4 years? Here is a wakeup call… The term economic crisis is in every newspaper every day for a reason. Ron Paul has the answer. He is going to cut 1 trillion dollars in year one, and that’s just for starters. Ever notice how a moonpie used to cost a nickel in the old days and now it’s a buck fifty? It’s not because moonpies are that much better now, it’s because the dollar has lost over 90 percent of it’s purchasing power. Ron Paul will establish sound monetary policy. A policy that will most likely be based on value that cannot be counterfitted, a return to precious metals. But that’s what they did back in the 17-1800’s for money, shouldn’t he get with the times? Oh, you mean back when we had a manageable budget and sound money? That seems like a good idea to me. The fact that people say that a precious metals based monetary system makes no sense are implying that the founding fathers had no idea what they were doing. Strange considering that even then they recognized the dangers of large federal government and pushed forward the tenth amendment, which is central to Ron Paul’s platform. Don’t like Ron Paul’s stance on Iran? The same people that are yelling about the evils of Iran are the same ones yelling to bring the troops home. Make up your mind folks! Because Ron Paul wants to extend the hand of friendship and commerce before pressing violence is no indication that he is unwilling or unable to stand up for our defense. Are you forgetting that he was a flight surgeon during Vietnam? About the only experience with war most Americans have with war is with Rambo and Call of Duty. Ron Paul has PROVEN that he is willing to stand. Don’t like the fact that Ron Paul intends to reduce military spending? What’s the military to most people but a news story. The fact is that Ron Paul brings in more money from military vets than any other candidate by an OVERWHELMING majority. In fact, it is more than the rest of the republican candidate field combined. Don’t you think there is a message to be received from that gesture? The author of this post is a vet as well.

How can any man or woman with any sense of reason discount and disregard Ron Paul’s message. Peace, prosperity, freedom, liberty, a return to the constitution and sound monetary policy is dear to all of our hearts. It is the unshakable foundation of Ron Paul’s message. Ron Paul is my president.

It's hard not to like a statesman that champions sound money and individual liberties. It was my pleasure to vote for him two times back in '08 (I'm in his Congressional district ).

Thanks for the heads-up Shelby!

I gave some to him a couple of months ago, and decided to wait to see if he moved up in the polls. It looks like he has! So, I will cut him another check soon.

Of all the Rs, he is the only one who is close to 100% in intellectual honesty. IMO of course.

I do 10 clams a month. It's a small price to pay for liberty!

I just donated to Ron's campaign. He's closing in on the $1 million dollar mark. Hope the donations pick up so they can reach the $4 million goal. If you want to make a donation using a credit card or paypal, you can do so here:

Wish I could donate too.
What about putting a banner on pmbug today like the one they use at Ron Paul Forums?

I participate in a regular donation I hacve set up to give to Dr. Paul. He truly is our best and only hope. I do not follow the Doctor blindly, and have reservations about some of his ideas, but the good stuff outweighs the bad stuff ten to one.

Agreed. No one can say absolutely everything right, but the good doctor makes to much sense to follow anyone else.

We spend a lot of time arguing who would do what for which issue, how they would vote, and what policies they would propose. What this amounts to is promises that will supposedly be kept one elected to office. So people base their decision, or at least try to, on which candidate promises to do/support specific things.

However nice these promises sound and the importance of the issues, in reality any president is going to be faced with issues and decision that were not foreseen during the election process.

When these issues arise the elected will form some type of opinion and policy, take some sort of action, based on some sort of valuation of the different inputs and possible outputs of the situation.

If you elect someone based on a list of promises and stances on past issues, there is no telling how they will react to something that was not thought of previously. The result could very likely involve the person you voted for doing something that you strongly oppose and never would have voted for him in the first place had you know this is how he would react.

Therefore, it is important to vote not for a shopping list of promises, but for a set of principles. Yes, these are different. The principles are what lead politicians to make the promises, but not the promises themselves. The principles are general and can be applied to any situation, if they are sound. The promises/actions are the result of that application. Knowing what someone says the will do, rather than why they will do it, can lead to surprise when faced with a new issue that was not on the menu during the election.

I'll vote for someone who's principles are as close to mine as I can find, AND that has a history of holding firmly to them, even when doing so is difficult. This will best ensure that the elected will uphold my preferences as closely as possible given any circumstance, no matter how unpredictable it may be.

I really only have one option.

swissaustrian is a good guy. A Ron Paul supporter was independently running a Ron Paul ad in a Iowa newspaper and asking for small donations to cover the cost. It ended up $500 short before the deadline and our guy covered the deficit.

I am donating $100 for every $1M donated today. My next $100 will be donated on behalf of swissaustrian.

Looks like the money bomb may have fallen short of the $4MM goal, but I don't know if they have added in offline donations (physical checks) to the total yet. Even so, $3.25MM is pretty good. I'm sure donations will continue to trickle in.
