Ron Paul supporters, who are you guys?

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.


Who are you guys?

How old are you?
Where are you from?
What do you do?
What’s your political history?
What brought you to Ron Paul?


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

57 year old woman,

homeschooled all our 6 children, and taught the Constitution. I believe all 6 are Paul supporters, and most of their spouses. The few of our 21 grandchildren old enough to vote are voting for Paul, and one has girlfriend, big Paul supporter. The rest help at sign waves. My husband also Paul supporter, and we were precinct delegates at County conventions. We will be going to a church when we move that actually has Constitution classes for all the homeschoolers in their church (all of them), a NON 501-c3 church. We ARE the revolution!
My 83 year old dad and 80 year old mom voted for Paul last time and this, and WILL write him in.

Remember your rights,cause if you don't ... Who Will ?

Please address all these questions to The Fifth Amendment (Amendment V) to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights

Still not going to answer no

Still not going to answer no matter how many times you bump this thread. The opposition uses our info against us. Currently, too many people giving too much info has helped the GOP start a purge of our delegates nationwide.

Nice try though!

Hey Mike Watson in Austin,

Hey Mike Watson in Austin, TX. I'm a 23 year old veteran who was an EOD tech in the Army and is now a security guard. Been republican leaning my whole life but since I started listening to Ron Paul in the presidential debates and watching John Stossel on Fox News I've found myself leaning towards libertarian. Now I want to get involved and do whatever I can to help Dr. Paul and his liberty movement. I've donated to Paul's campaign and try to spread his philosophy to everyone I know. If anybody in the Austin, TX area needs help supporting Ron Paul shoot me an email and I'll do whatever I can. See you on May 29!

Like you, I am an American.

Hi, my name is steven mennella. I am 43 and have recently moved with my wife to WV. I have not been very politically motivated. I have been mostly turned off by the plutocrats and kleptocrats who continue to leech wealth off of this nation. I conceptualize the republican and democratic parties as two heads on the same bloated beast. I have never really focused on local elections (with the exception of 2006 when I voted for Jim Webb for Senate who convinced me of his intention to get our troops out of Iraq). I marched on Washington DC in protest of the build up to the second Iraq war.

I was turned on to Ron Paul after the recent republican debates. Dr. Paul reminds me so much of Ross Perot whom I also voted for. I remember Perot's 30 minute ads depicting the degrading economic straits we faced 20 years ago which resonates so profoundly today.

Having listened to Dr. Paul I am actually hopeful that we can make a difference. It is not enough to support an individual who espouses your views, you must become actively involved in the process to change it. We must engage ourselves at every level to uproot those that seek world hegemony at the expense of our blood, treasure, and liberty.

Gotta Dance!

For the last few months I’ve been lurking and learning Oh So Much from the contributors here on the Daily Paul. For that, Thank you very much. It is because of this education and listening to the intense political music, I’ve reached a point where…. I Gotta Dance.

Although I’m a newbie to this forum, I am not new to political think. I was suckled at the breast of the body politic.

By way of introduction, the year I was born an event took place, just up the road from where I was raised. It was an event which took place in a rural South Texas county. The Senate race balloting was r-e-a-l-l-y close. Strangely the ballot box for this county was “misplaced”. When it was “found”, the candidate, who was trailing in the race, received just enough votes to carry the election and went to Washington, representing the Great State of Texas. Ballot Box 13, Duval County laid out the path to the White House for Lyndon Baines Johnson. I was raised to speak in the political tongues of my parents (Texas Democrats for Nixon), “None Dare Call It Treason” was my reading primer. My family’s friends and relatives were truly into to politics and self-reliance. I’m really a whole lot of fun at a social gathering….once.

All this is to say, Hello. It is my hope that the words I leave here will be understood in the vain in which they are written. I will strive to choose my words carefully, because unlike a face to face verbal exchange, the nuance of facial expressions is lost, yet the words will still remain. At times I will get excited and have errors in grammar, syntax, spelling and punctuation. For that I apologize...beforehand.

Most importantly, I want to be sure that what I post is pertinent to the proper category and the subject at hand. So, please do not hesitate to set me straight and guide me to the proper place.

Now, let’s dance…

I stood before the man and felt his breath on my face. In his eyes I saw …. A warrior.

Hi.

How old are you? - 15

Where are you from? - New Jersey

What do you do? - High School sophomore

What’s your political history? - Not much, except campaigning locally for Ron Paul. I may not be able to vote until 2016, but I've convinced a lot of people to vote for Ron Paul in the June Primaries. That's around 40-50 and ranges from family members to the elderly people at the nursing home I volunteer at.

What brought you to Ron Paul? - He's the obvious choice to fix this country.

Patriot

I am Terry G Dalton. I usually go by Will Powers on the internet posts. Have a twin brother named Larry Dalton from Cherry Valley, IL who is also a member. I am 52 and live in Modesto, IL. I love my fellow humans and was raised to be fair and honest. I have a degree in Agriculture and minor in English. I am divorced with two kids aged 13 and 16, jesse and Tatum whos future in this country, I worry about. I am tired of watching the elite systemmatically rip off the value of our currency and minipulate our entire economy through crony capitalism and sold out media. Im sick of the govt interfereing with peoples rights, privacy and freedoms. Im upset also about wasteful spending, unconstitutional taxation and our out of control govt spending especially in the policing the world dept.

My business is New Day Environmental LLC. We clean up environmental messes underground usually from tank spills at fuel stations. Go Ron Paul. I just made my first donation to the Paul campaign. Best $100 I ever spent. I voted for RP in the IL primary but I dont think the electronic voting machine counted it....just a feeling. I have always felt that RP could win the GOP nomination, but they will cheat him out of it so I have been planning on RP running as an independent. I think RP has anticipated this all along as well.

25-year-old from Atlanta, GA.

25-year-old from Atlanta, GA. Work in the IT field while doing a post-bac program for medical school (contradictory, I know). Ex-Democrat and ex-Obama supporter.

Came to Paul before I knew who Paul was. Learned about the Federal Reserve in 2008 after watching a documentary that talked about how evil it was, among other crazy things that people don't realize. Became hopeless as I felt I was one of the few who knew what was really going on. Then about March 2010 I went to a program at school that was supposed to tell us how we could end the fed. It was about a competition of currency act being proposed in the Georgia state legislature, which of course didn't pass. It was put on by our chapter of Campaign for Liberty, and everyone there was talking so much about Paul and libertarianism. The rest is history. Been an avid follower of DP for a few months now and finally decided to join in.

I'm 19 years old from eastern

I'm 19 years old from eastern Idaho. I am currently a college student at Idaho State University where I plan to major in marketing. I come from a family of establishment republicsns, but I "saw the light" so to speak before I ever got the chance to vote. Many in our family are beginning to support Ron Paul's liberty movement. What brought me to Ron Paul was his true commitment to smaller government, after I researched and realized that our county is not run by our poltiicians, but the big banks and special interests that back them. Since then, Ron has swayed many of my opinions on previous issues and I am 100% on board. It's so refreshing to see someone just speak the truth on the campaign trail, and not just re-iterate empty talking points that we all want to hear.

Way to go

I grew up in Eastern Washington. Thanks!

I can't believe this thread is still alive

posting your personal info here is like being the new kid in town and showing up on the first day of school with a Spiderman lunchbox.

I had one of those!

Greetings!

I've been following things since the beginning of the primaries, and have been reading the Daily Paul for maybe a month now, multiple times daily. Those delegate races recently had me biting my nails in anticipation.

I filled out my Vote By Mail ballot in California today, and proudly connected the arrow for Ron Paul. I pre-registered as a Republican months ago so I could vote in the beauty contest. I also chose Rick Williams for Senate, and I'm currently trying to find who the liberty-minded candidates are for House, State Senate, and State Assembly.

Cheers all, and good luck out there.

Who are we?

We are the present and we are the future. We are the ones who have learned from the past.
Me? I am a 59 yo woman in Oklahoma. I am not a paultard or a ronulan. I am a believer and supporter of liberty and freedom. I believe in and support Ron Paul.

I'm a fan of a Podcast called "Common Sense with Dan Carlon" in an episode, he mentioned Ron Paul in a positive way. That caused me to look deeper into the Good Doctor.

How old are you? 52 Where are

How old are you? 52
Where are you from? NC, lived in SC 20 years
What do you do? work in child protection
What’s your political history? started out Democrat, change in the Reagan years
What brought you to Ron Paul? when I saw the young people liked him I decided to see if it was all marijuana, etc. and discovered the real deal. I re-read the Constitution and Amendments and then The Federalist and The anti-Federalist papers. Then I started reading Dr Paul's works. And the rest is history...

AUTO-BIO

I am 40.
A teacher.
Passionate xsupporter of Obama
Used to favor social programs and foreign intervention, until Paul explained the errors in this philosophy.
I want to end the fed.
I really believe that is the heart of America's problems.
I hate that the MSM are liars and cowards! I watched several debates, live and am disgusted with the way they treat ROn Paul. I have read NY TIMES and other major, trusted newspapers distort Ron Paul. Even the NPR! I believe the establishment fears and hates Ron Paul and the people that believe like him. I want LIBERTY!!!! I WANT FREEDOM!!!!

Let's Fight the Good Fight

Guess its time to add my story.

Been coming here for years, but just saw this thread. I usually just see the front page.

I'm 52 years old and live near Spokane, WA. I first heard of Dr. Paul in 2007, but had found many of his ideas in the mid-90's when I heard Harry Browne on a radio show. He was a libertarian candidate.

I was an Air Force officer then, and it was somewhat disturbing for me to read The Failure of America's Foreign Wars. I separated from the service, though I still support the military and wish we would save it for actual defense. Including my son who is on his 3rd trip to Afghanistan.

I was raised conservative and Mormon. It is sad to see my family all voting for Romney without being able to defend his positions. Obviously using politics to promote religion. LDS are supposed to have the strong belief the Constitution is inspired of God, yet Romney cares little about it. This year, I made my first political effort, as a delegate to our county convention, and it was somewhat embarrassing to see my fellow LDS forsaking their principles and blindly supporting Romney. They even voted for a rule to make us state whether we would pledge allegiance to the party, regardless of who was nominated.

I have a small farm, and learned a couple years ago I have the same tractor as Ron Paul, a Ford 2000. Apparently the sign of great men. :)

By the way....

my family says Ron Paul is okay except for foreign policy. I just found this article which might help others who are or know LDS.

http://www.mormonchronicle.com/an-lds-perspective-on-war-and...

The article links this speech by church leader Ezra Taft Benson in 1968. Sounds just like Ron Paul, even defending against the charge of isolationism.

This is the water'd down WSJ story on our case

Since that time, we have gathered proof that Bain & Goldman Sachs conspired to defraud the eToys public company and destroy it willfully.

We can provide proof of corruption in the DOJ ranks.

Who Am I?

19 years old

Northern Virginia born and bred

Rising sophomore at Longwood University (VA), aspiring sportswriter

Raised by right-wing Republican parents. My political views have evolved over the years. Was a neoconservative for the longest time, Bush/McCain supporter growing up. First-generation Tea Party member. Economically, I am very libertarian. Foreign policy-wise, I share many of Dr. Paul's views. Socially, I am center-right. By and large, the government should stay out of our lives. I do believe that members of the LGBT community deserve equal rights, but I do not agree with calling it "marriage." I am pro-civil union. Very pro-life. Anti-Patriot Act.

I was a Herman Cain supporter for much of 2011. When his campaign ended, I didn't know who I was going to support. In 2008, I strongly disliked Paul because of his foreign policy views. After really reading into his positions, however, I was sold. I became a Paul supporter almost overnight. I have had a RP2012 button on my backpack and two RP2012 wristbands on my left wrist since January.

Fight for freedom. Fight for gold. Fight for Dr. Paul in 2012.

Desperate! For the 5th time...

Eff you Romney/Coast to Coast "Grass Stop" Services! You're screwed! Report abuse. The next person who goes into a "all about me" answer... I'm voitng down. Clam it.
