Dear Santorum supporters: stuff you might not realize about Dr. Paul

Dear Santorum supporters who are adrift and searching for options after the disappointment of your candidate dropping out:

Just wanted to mention a few things that you might not have realized about Dr. Paul and hope you will consider:

1) Dr. Paul, contrary to what some in evangelical circles will try to tell you, is strongly pro-Life. See his address to the South Carolina pro-Life forum from this year:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fByI0vYp_DQ
He clearly discusses how he supports federal constitutional efforts to protect unborn Life, but describes how overturning Roe v Wade and sending the issue back to the States will save many lives in the meantime.

2) Dr. Paul is strong on national defense. His foreign policy advisor Bruce Fein describes Dr. Paul as very hawkish when it comes to actually defending the United States as the Constitution prescribes. It's just that his foreign policy is the same foreign policy of our first Commander-in-Chief, George Washington, who wisely implored his countrymen not to get entangled in foreign conflicts and alliances, to engage the world wherever possible in friendly trade. Dr. Paul heeds this advice in not wanting to bog us down with being the world's policeman and endless nation-building. Please read George Washington's Farewell Address and compare to Dr. Paul's policies.

3) Dr. Paul is a strong supporter of Israel. He was one of the few voices in Congress who stood up in the 1980's to defend Israel's right to take out the Iraqi nuclear facilities of the day. He decries attempts by the US to push Israel around, becoming the master lender to the borrower slave through foreign aid, and dictating the peace process terms to Israel and her neighbors. Dr. Paul respects Israeli and American sovereignty and wants to maintain a friendly relationship through shared intelligence, and not bossing them around like so many past and present Administrations have done.

There are other areas I'd like to mention, but I think these three are especially important for you and the evangelical/Catholic/conservative communities to realize.

Please check into these things further to discover the real Dr. Paul, not the caricature some have tried to present.

Thanks for listening!

For Liberty,

Micah
