Just wrote a letter to The Day in New London CT...wide distribution...here it is

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.

Before submitting a letter

remember to check your newspapers requirements for Letters to the Editor. I know my local paper requires them to be 250 words or less.
Here is a letter I sent to a local paper that meets requirements:

To the Editor:

I'm in debt.

For many years, over three decades, he fought for us. Without recognition, without support, he continued his battle. After years of fighting alone, years of no recognition and no support, he still would not sell out. After fighting for so long alone, would you have been able to blame him if he had?

But he didn't give in. If not even one individual had supported him; he would still not have given in.

I am now in debt to this amazing man, and it’s a debt that can never be paid off in full. We weren’t there for him from the beginning, but I, and many others are now supporting him for President in 2008.

This amazing man is Dr. Ron Paul, currently serving his 10th term in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is a staunch supporter of liberty and constitutional government.

Congressman Paul has:

· Never voted to raise taxes.

· Never voted for an unbalanced budget.

· Never voted to raise congressional pay.

· Never taken a government-paid junket

Congressman Ron Paul is a Republican candidate for President of the United States in 2008. The major news media is trying to ignore him and put forth candidates without true conservative principles, but his internet popularity, and grassroots support is unequaled.

Sincerely,

Copy and paste and send to your paper if you like. I actually got the idea for the letter from a post on Daily Paul many moons ago and got permission from the poster to use the ideas.

Good letter kafkuba! Letters to the editor are a good way to reach many people.

The Day

The Day is a local paper. They have published some reasonable pieces (op-eds and letters) on Ron Paul in the past, but just chose to republish the horrible editorial that appeared in the Washington Post on Friday. I believe it might be because their new managing editor came from the WaPo, and still appears to maintain close ties to them.

They chose to publish this hit piece (1/12) just three weeks before the primary in CT. IMHO, very unprofessional- a transparent attempt to slander one of the candidates before the voting starts.

I encourage others to write and protest their action, as well. Thanks to those who have.

Nice letter!

Thanks.

Wow, this is so good. This really needs to be spread all over wish I knew how. I can give it a bump here. Thank you for writing this.
