Ron Paul endorses Mark Sanford

Just got an email from Ron Paul Liberty PAC announcing RP's endorsement of Mark Sanford. They served together in Congress and Sanford was occasionally a second NO vote when RP voted NO.

If RP chooses to support Sanford, then most of us should follow his lead. I have.

Contact Michael Stevens, the Sanford grass roots director, if you can come to Charleston or Bluffton, South Carolina the next 2 weekends.

SC district 1, vote for the

SC district 1, vote for the liberal or the libertarian-leaning candidate endorsed by Ron Paul? After all the good things SC has been doing lately, a liberal winning one if the most conservative districts in the nation would be quite the setback.

Ethics are a problem, and

Ethics are a problem, and normally I wouldn't give Sanford a second chance. Nobody's perfect, but I don't play that card in politics. However, Ron Paul endorsed him and that goes a long way for me.
Also, Tom Davis endorses him and he's the best liberty guy in SC.

I recently read that Sanford asked his

ex-wife to help him with his campaign as she did when he ran for governor. She declined BUT I thought it was interesting that he asked her. If indeed things went down as the media portrayed it - why would he ask her to campaign for him? It would be suicide.

I wonder, wonder, wonder what really happened.

I love that RP supports Mark Sanford - I remember him saying that he "saw his friend Mark Sanford in the audience" when the SC debacle, oops, I mean debate took place.

Sorry folks ...


Mr. Sanford is NOT trustworthy

Remember this?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikqJ_KB66WQ I saw this video on a friday a few years ago. I told my dad that weekend that he may be a good presidential candidate if Ron was going to be sabotaged by the media. A liberty backup candidate if you will. That following Monday he was outed for his affair. The timing of it all made me wonder if the CIA has tabs on all politicians misdeeds so that they can take them down if need be. Not that Sanford was going to run for president but if CIA did expose him it may have been because they didn't want a popular Governor of a early primary state like South Carolina supporting their enemy Ron Paul. My gut still tells me the above video is the reason he was outed.

Gotta bump that awesome

Gotta bump that awesome video!!! No wonder Ron endorses him.

Good to see Ron Paul

speaking up against the establishment, I would expect nothing less =D Good Luck To Mark Sanford

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

I will not support him

I think this endorsement was a mistake.

Is there anyone better

Is there anyone better running for the position? Then I'll go with Dr Paul's choice.

Good news. Thanks for posting.


I love Ron Paul, but will not make decisions

because someone tells me so. Sanford has no scruples - if he can outright lie without remorse, why on God's green earth would I want him in a leadership position? The man has no morals.

I do not condone Mark Sanford's actions; however, ...

is anyone here without sin? Also, I must have missed the "lack of remorse" part. Please fill me in.


a completely self-centered immoral person. I don't live in SC, but I would not vote for him. A huge liar.

I respect Ron Paul's opinions. If Paul feels Sanford is worthy of his endorsement, then I too will support Sanford and suggest others consider the same.

ron paul also hired jesse benton TWICE

allowed tom woods to be ousted from being near campaign

allowed trygve olsen into the fold as well,,,, and left peggy freeman ,,, who seems legit and hardworking ,,, out on the curb

so dr paul,,, while the man,,,, is fallible

seems like he may have waisted his credibility on this one and for no good reason

most will not forgive a cheater or liar as evidence of the many replies

we need new blood not the same old,,,, and even worse those that got blown up and still run
