I find it interesting that Ron Paul's ideas scare people so much...to the point of drudging up past articles that he has more than sufficiently explained decades ago.
In fact, there has been more racism displayed by the other candidates through their fear-mongering and their grouping together of nations- equating an entire people with terrorists "who should only be trading burkas", chomping at the bit to start wars, and declaring that "our country should be a nation of high fences and wide gates".
Ron Paul's ideas and actions speak for themselves. Anyone who takes the time to listen and read his works should be able hear he isn't racist.
There are people who are afraid to take the time to study why he appeals to so many people. Some are afraid of change, and will follow a familiar name into oblivion. Some say they want change, for change sake, but aren't willing to make the sacrifices themselves...they expect someone else to take the hit.
Then there are those who know what real change takes. It will mean sacrificing for the better of the whole...for our country's future. It means not waiting until the economy tanks or we escalate a war.
Ron Paul has been brave enough to stand up and speak the truth...he has been consistent and has brought fire to these primaries. Instead of embracing this man's courage, you are promoting the same old rhetoric and double-speaking.
I encourage everyone to Google Ron Paul because, unfortunately, the media is too afraid and worried about corporate sponsorship to provide unbiased (i.e., fair and balanced) news about Ron Paul. Ron Paul does have ideas. The ideas are embedded in the constitution, written by some of the greatest minds who have ever lived.
