Military newspaper front page: "YOU WANT HIM - Ron Paul leads in donations for military personnel"

The Ranger is a weekly newspaper published for the military personnel at Joint Base Lewis McChord in WA. This week's front page is a photo of Ron Paul for an article talking about Dr. Paul's support from the military, and his foreign policy positions.

New to board ~ obtained a hard copy

I'm new this board, but have been a Ron Paul supporter since 2007. Just wanted to let you know that I obtained a hard copy of the Ranger weekly newspaper with Ron Paul on the front cover. My son is in the military and just left Fort Lewis and is now stationed in South Korea.

If there is anyone that needs to borrow this paper to copy or for any other reason, please let me know. I'm always here to help Ron Paul and all the supporters.

Email me through Daily Paul.

I'm a Vietnam Vet (1963-1969)

I'm a Vietnam Vet (1963-1969) Spent 6 yrs.n the Navy. Was very ignorant politically then. As I look back now that I know the Vietnam war was a staged event. ( Gulf of Tonkin Incident) we lost over 55,000 men and woman for a contrived conflict for the profit of the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. It sickens me to see all these men and woman killed or maimed for a corrupt corporatist government. Ron Paul cured my apathy 4 years ago and I have not been the same since. It's like a revalation. He has to win the Presidentcy or our way of life in this country is doomed................



Saluting our military and people stepping up for good representation of our Country.

We Want Him

I am not surprised by the amount of donations from folks in the military. No one appreciates peace more than a member of our military.

That being said, I am persuaded that it is vitally important that the media (lamestream, mainstream, whatever you choose to call it) not only acknowledge that fact, but that also it would be good to have a member of our military ask a question to the candidates in the next debate televised on TV.

What is so important to the candidates that they woud choose to send our military citizens overseas to fight in an undeclared war, without even a Letter of Marque and Reprisal? Who are the advocates of perpetual war for perpetual peace? I'm pretty sure the readers of this forum can determine that, but it is something that needs to be asked of the whole country, and quite blatantly.

God bless Ron Paul and his family and keep them safe.

You make a lot of excellent

You make a lot of excellent points, however I have to say that I am surprised that MORE military personnel do not support Ron Paul. But like you say the media plays a big role in this.

Fort Lewis Ranger

I live about 10 minutes from Fort Lewis/McChord Air Force base. I'll see if I can get a few copies of the paper from somewhere.

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms.

So do I. My husband works on

So do I. My husband works on base, I'm having him bring some copies home!

West WA

So nice to hear from other Paul supporters in the region.

This is great to see, thanks

Thinking... Dr Paul needs to

Dr Paul needs to really talk about his service in the military. When attacked about his foreign policy he should ask how many of the candidates there on stage ever served?? Ask that question and wait for them to answer.....
Then he might say, "Not a one"! You want others to go fight and die, NOW, but you didn't go. Why? Should they answer...we know they'll have a million excuses..."no-win war", right? Why are they ready to send our troops into that, now?
He needs to hammer this over and over again. Americans will listen to that. How many parents, brothers, sisters, wives and children are waiting for that answer? They will remember that question and their answers in the voting booth....none!! "Only One", went and served....Ron Paul

He doesn't need to mention

He doesn't need to mention his service a lot, but he does need to bring up the donations.

When the crowd starts hissing at his foreign policy or the other candidates start acting indignant, all he needs to say is something like,

"Look, my foreign policy is common sense. And the troops agree with me. They've graciously contributed to my campaign more than all the other candidates combined!"

Order Reprints from the paper!

Local meetup members should consider contacting staff at the paper's office and trying to acquire the real, authentic newsprint copy of the paper (or at least the front page), if possible. Maybe if we could organize a bunch of different meetup groups to make a huge order, they could reprint the paper and ship it out to someone, who could then see that it is distributed out to the various meetups around the country. This should be something canvassers have in their portfolios when they are knocking on doors to talk about Ron Paul! Having the authentic newsprint makes it all the more legit and impressive!


Working for the Remnant means working in impenetrable darkness; and this, I should say, is just the condition calculated most effectively to pique the interest of any prophet who is properly gifted with the imagination, insight and intellect

To those members of military like me...

I am ex-military, and I believe in the Oath I gave, just as Ron Paul does. I know some of you are paying attention, and wondering what the heck am I fighting for over here in the middle east. If you are wondering, and someone has told you about Ron Paul, please listen to them, if not please listen to me. Ron Paul is all for defending our Country, and sound money, ie...gold or silver. We, ie...the military have been duped/lied to. I know, I am an ex-military soldier, and know what has been going down. Our government has been handed over to the bankers, and big corporations, ie..Goldman Sach, JP Morgan, Bank of America, Halliburton, the Oil Companies. Open your eyes, and stop this crap. Our Country, and it's people have been told a lie, and it is time for our forces to come back, and defend our people against it's government, the corporations, and those that want to harm this nation here at home. You all gave your oath to protect this Your Country from foreign, and domestic terrorists. I beg that all of you brothers, and sisters fighting this war on terror come home, and fight the terror that is eating all the true working Americans at home, it is not Al-quaida, it is our very own government, who gives our tax payers dollars to countries like Pakistan, and Afganistan that harbor real Terrorists. Tell our government officials that you want to come home, and that you want the truth, we the American people will support you, and I am sure your families will as well.


They know the wars are BS, so they must like him! He wants it to stop. And so do they.

I want him! 1976-1982 USMC!!!

Joined the Corps when I had no idea of politics. Got sent to the Panama Canal Zone and lived with the upset by the citizens of that country. They saw their livelyhood gonig to decrease. They blamed their own college students. I was right there with them. All of this Carter crap pissed me off. What can I say, I was only 17.

Now I am 51-52 in a month! LoL! We did right turning it over. Yes we built it, but it was for empire even back then.

When are we going to leave people alone and let them live their own lives. Hell, when is our government going to leave US alone to live our own lives. Ron Paul may be the ONLY answer.

Semper Fi my Marine friends. We know it is thicker than blood or Government!


1976-1982 USMC, Having my hands in the soil keeps me from soiling my hands on useless politicians.


mutha f'ing rah.

"I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove."

Why do all these great

Why do all these great articles usually blow it right at the END??

Thanks Patriot1

If we can't get hard copy, then let's get our printers rolling. Also get this link on every blog and forum possible. If space allows, give them this teaser from the article with the link.
"But Servicemembers aren't only saying they believe in Paul, they are also putting their money where their mouth is.
Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Paul has raised more than any other current presidential candidate in donations from members of the military. Of those donors who indicated their occupation and employer, Paul topped the other contenders, a distinction he also achieved during his 2008 presidential run, according to USA Today."
