Indiana Senate candidate smears Ron PaulSubmitted by ahoward4 on Sun, 05/02/2010 - 17:51
Marlin Stutzman for United States Senate 2010
A note of great concern
Dear Hoosier voter,
There is much at stake in this coming election, and with the Primary Vote just days away, it has been brought to our attention that many people have a growing concern about John Hostettler's view on Israel; especially considering his close ties to and endorsement by Ron Paul. John Hostettler wrote a book Nothing for the Nation: Who Got What Out of Iraq. In it, he presents his position against the war
in Iraq, why he voted against it, and affirms the fact that he is in agreement with Ron Paul's view of Israel and the Jews.
In his book, Hostettler contends that President George W. Bush depended on intelligence provided by what Hostettler has called "neoconservatives with Jewish backgrounds." He states his belief that these people who influenced the President to invade Iraq were motivated by their ties with Israel, and that their real interest was in promoting the security of Israel. This controversial stance is of great concern and that concern has been expressed to our campaign by different sources who are familiar with the stance of Hostettler and Ron Paul on this issue.
At a recent southern Conservative conference, a reporter witnessed the following and reported:
Today at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, a similar dynamic played out. House Republican Conference Chairman Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) was booed by Ron Paul followers during his speech. Washington Post blogger Dave Weigel, who is reporting from the conference, described the scene: "Pence says 'America stands with Israel'; Ron Paul contingent boos, shouted down by chants of 'USA!'"
Later, when it was his turn to speak at the convention, the libertarian Paul delivered a scathing criticism of Republican foreign policy views: "Conservatives spend money on different things. They like embassies, and they like occupation. They like the empire. They like to be in 135 countries and 700 bases. (boos) [...] Don't you think it's rather conservative to say, 'oh it's good to follow the Constitution, oh, except for war. Let the President go to war anytime they want.' [...] We can do better with peace than with war!" (mixture of boos and applause)
In an interview with Press TV on January 5, 2009, Ron Paul contends that we should end our special relationship with Israel. He continues with,
"If Israel has a problem they have to deal with,
I don't think it should be any of our business."
It is Marlin Stutzman's belief that America's support of the nation of Israel is crucial, especially considering the Obama administrations approach in the coming years. Marlin believes there are spiritual reasons as well as economic and democratic reasons why America should stand strong with Israel.
Please consider giving this most important issue some time and thought in making your decision for U.S. Senate this coming Tuesday. If you consider Israel a friend and ally of the United States cast your vote for Marlin! For further information, please visit our website at www.gomarlin.com.
