Who am I to Love Ron Paul?

How old are you?
59, 60 in November

Where are you from?
Born, raised, and presently living in Louisville, Kentucky

What do you do?
I was an Computer Programmer with 25 years experience on Mainframes; presently unemployed for the past 13 years.

What’s your political history?
Mixed until 1982, when I discovered "Atlas Shrugged" and Reason Magazine and an earlier Laissez Faire mail order Book Club.

What brought you to Ron Paul?
I attended the 1988 Libertarian Convention where Ron Paul won the Libertarian Party's nomination for President over Russell Means. A lot of us were very suspicious of Ron Paul (as we were of Bob Barr twenty years later), but he was an Excellent Presidential Candidate. I am pro-choice on Abortion, but Ron Paul was always very conscientious about his position being a respected but minority position within the party. He didn't have to do that,... but he did. Very impressive.
