Paul Supporter's Letter Makes Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Click here to read - An Inspiration

Reproduced below:

After attending Friday's rally in Marshall for presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, with approximately 1,000 others, I eagerly awaited reading about the event in Saturday's Trib. I must say that I was very disappointed to find no mention of it in the paper.

When I did a search of your site online I found a brief note on the event in the Wednesday edition. I also saw Bill Steigerwald's Q&A of July 28 on the Iowa caucuses.

Mr. Steigerwald interviewed David Yepsen of the Des Moines Register as to how "electability" is the key to the caucuses. In other words, style is more important than substance.

Unfortunately it is this attitude on the part of the media, the major political parties and the public that has gotten our country into the mess it is in today. It seems as if repeating the "talking points" of the major parties has become more prevalent than actually discussing and debating the issues.

I found Dr. Paul's message to be so inspiring that I shall change my party affiliation so that I may vote for him in the next primary election.

Cool that they published it

I'm impressed that the Trib posted the letter. We're talking about an editing decision to post a letter critical of editing decisions. Most entities of any sort won't do that. It also probably has something to do with how well-written the letter was.
