A similar thread was originally started by MashTheGas but I guess it was lost with the server crash. It lasted a few weeks with a few hundred responses.

Answer as much or as little as you want. It's great to see what an eclectic group supports Ron Paul.

What brought you to Ron Paul? Been reading articles of Dr. Paul's on his Congressional site for a long time. Then at the FSP's NH Liberty Forum in Feb '07 I saw him speak about a possible run for the white house. We were thrilled!

A girl..

31. riverside, ca, substitute teacher, political history= RP for life!, What brought me to RP's camp was my alternative views on food and health. I started to really understand the dangers of conventional foods and conventional medicine. Most are superious to out overall health and freedoms. One thing led to another and Voila! Here I am. I feel blessed.

Just wish Aaron Russo were here today.

Where are you from? Canada (Victoria BC)

What’s your political history? Libertarian since 1982, ran for the Libertarian Party of Canada for Victoria MP 1993, pretty active in libertarian politics for years but more of a market anarchist now.

What brought you to Ron Paul? Followed his run as a Libertarian Presidential Candidate in 1988. Didn't much like him as a libertarian at the time since he held some unlibertarian positions on some issues. Found him again in 2002 when I saw he was going to be a force against the wars I could see coming. Been advocating his cause since, with a great deal of enthusiasm until more recently. I strongly disapprove of his anti-immigration stands. I continue to support in on the net because he's pretty much the only hope the world has to end this empire building exercise. And I'd go all out if he were to change his tune on immigration.

www.WhoAreRonPaulSupporters.com

I just purchased this website domain name. I want to create a website just for this topic--people can comment on who they are and why they support Dr. Ron Paul. And we will use all the comments that are submitted on the NPR site and make www.WhoAreRonPaulSupporters.com a dynamic website where Ron Paul supporters can post their comments. All the comments will be displayed in a "running total" fashion. The comments can be rated like you can with YouTube videos. And new comments can be added to the "running total"

What do you think? Suggestions?

I need help from a webmaster to put up a really nice looking webpage for this purpose? Anybody who can help me out on this new project?

Please email me at dmc4rp@yahoo.com

This way, it makes it easy for us to spread the word, by telling new people that "Hey, check out who is supporting Dr. Ron Paul, just go to www.WhoAreRonPaulSupporters.com!"

I'm 19 years old. I'm a New

I'm 19 years old.

I'm a New Hampshire native.

I work as a Real Estate Agent.

I've considered myself a Libertarian since I was 15. Once the Free State Project picked New Hampshire I started getting active. I cohost a public access show in Keene. New Hampshire called Free Minds TV which deals with politics/current events from a freedom angle. The episodes are up on youtube if anyone wants to see. I occaisionally guest cohost a radio show/podcast called Free Talk Live.

I've been aware of Ron Paul for a couple years now. He attended the New Hampshire Liberty Forum last year just before he announced, so in way he came to me. I knew from the moment he started the exploratory commitee that I wanted him to run. I was skeptical like Dr. Paul himself, but the success of the campaign so far has given me reason to hope that we can restore the Republic and stop the slide towards Corporate Police State Socialism that has slowly erroded our constitution and free markets.

WHO AM I?

43, Entrepreneur, Santa Monica, Ca, run several companies, jewish russian origin
tired of the influence that AIPAC has on American policy

I support RON PAUL because he is the only honest candidate.
He is the start of a new area. I am proud to be part of this historical moment.
I just hope the election will not be rigged again this time. I have about 5000 people I already convinced to vote for RON PAUL.
Let us spread the message!

Patriot

Thirty five years old from Ft Lauderdale, FL. I am an electronics engineer currently. Also attending Florida Atlantic University so that I can get a Bachelors degree so that I can go on to attend law school and become a public interest attorney specializing in civil liberties. Have always been an independent, until now. Haven't filed an income tax return in 10 years. What brought me to Ron Paul is the fact that he is one of the very few politicians out there who could truthfully be called a "Patriot".

“Whenever you have truth it must be given with love, or the message and the messenger will be rejected”~ Mahatma Gandhi

Who I am ...

My name is George C.
I'm 45 years old .... forklift operator/warehouse manager .

Formerly a Micheal Moore tree hugging socialist ( smile) . I know .... I'm not proud of it .

Woke up after 911 . My investigations made me very political .

In my studies , I came across Alex Jones , where Ron Paul was a constant guest . This is where I first fell in love with him , and began to study his philosophy . This was about 3 years ago . He never let on about an interest in running for the Presidency again .

So this is like my personal dream come true ! How humbled and fortunate am I ... to see someone in my lifetime , who teaches the way he does .

You could study Dr Paul for a lifetime , and continuously marvel at his very deep mind .

25 Years Old

Became interested in politics during 2000 election. I missed being old enough to vote that year by less than a month. Knew GWB was bad news even then,

It's taken me a long time to find my political niche. I tried the Dems, but the local party is a waste of space. I tried the Greens in 2003-04 (Still voted for Kerry). They're good people, but not organized. I will say they are better people than the Corporate Dems though. Leading up to 08, I really tried to back Obama, really thought he could be a change candidate. He's done nothing but dissapoint me so far. I even considered Edwards, but he voted for the war back in the day.

As I continued to follow the race, it became very apparent that Dr. Paul is the only candidate that is HONEST. He speaks the truth, and he has the right message. I'm convinced that no other candidate from either party will change the status quo. The more I read and hear from RP, the more excited I get. He's the type of candidate I want to back. He has my loyalty, and I will never again be fooled into voting for a candidate of lesser integrity than Ron Paul.
