I have met your Grandfather and believe that he is a great man.
I was so proud of the way he handled the inapproriate and uninformed attack by the uber fascist Rudy. The whole debate was a fascist love in with all the candidates debating to see who would torture the most, kill the fastest and generally wreak havoc in the world on behalf of the military-industrial complex. Even Romney, whom I know, and personally like, vows to double Guantanamo. UGH. How these views square with the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Ten Commandments, the Geneva Conventions or any of theother standards developed over thousands of years of human misery is totally lost on the Republicans. They are going to disappear as a party if they do not change direction. Of course the Democrats are worse. What a sad state of affairs. Even the set up for the last question by Fox was patterned after the TV Show 24 and was designed to scare the American people into accepting the fascist state that the neocons would so love to make us become. Haven't any of these people read the history of Germany in the 1930's? Have any of these people really read the Constitution?
I hope your Grandfather can hang in there, we are all rooting for him and other Americans will too once they become more informed. It was a tough attack but Ron handled it well. He should be enormously proud and should continue to stand tall. I have made my donations and added the bumper sticker. If there is anything else I can do to help him let me know.
PS: The web may flatten this system. I am really encouraged by the activity on line. The networks, newspapers and political parties are all dinosaurs and it is clear that they will one day be extinct. The sooner the better.
God bless Ron Paul
