I am new to the site. My name is James and I live in Ron Paul's district in Victoria, TX. The local paper, The Victoria Advocate, had some negative things to say about Dr. Paul today. I sent them a letter earlier that I hope they'll publish. Here it is:
I find the media's assault on Ron Paul to be quite disturbing though not surprising. Is the media attacking Ron Paul simply because he had the courage to speak the truth? Not hardly.
Think about it. All he did was point out that our foreign policies have been dangerous. Where does he get this idea from? Straight from the 9/11 Commission Report. Try reading it sometime. He has never been caught up in any bribery scandals or any sordid affairs, so why is he attacked so much by the media and the political elites?
Ron Paul is being attacked because he is a threat to the establishment. The media has tried to hide his success in the online polls. Fox News tried hard to trash him, but Dr. Paul led their poll for a time. He ended up in second. In many other online polls, he wins handily. Many other elected officials undermine the Constitution and weaken America's sovereignty. Dr. Paul actually upholds the Constitution. He strongly defends civil liberties, protects our sovereignty and tries to keep us out of unnecessary wars.
Let's take a quick look at the so-called top three Republican candidates. Rudy Giuliani is pro-abortion and anti-gun. John McCain is soft on illegal immigration and is chomping at the bit to start World War IV. Mitt Romney flip-flops on the issues more than John Kerry. Meanwhile, Ron Paul is always consistent on the issues. He doesn't change his message to fit the crowd.
Who would you rather have representing you?
I am proud to have Dr. Paul representing me. I think he'll make a great president.
