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.

Who are you? We are principaled and can't be bribed.

Are you building some sort of list? Are you a troll? Who are Ron Paul supporters? Duhh. Kindly look at 1 of a million Ron Paul videos and it's plain to see: Everyone. Young, old, veterens, active military, black, white, asian Americans. Scholars, judges, honest public servants, students of history, liberals, conseratives, libratarians, independants, clergy. Our numbers are rapidly expanding and we are a force that you cannot stop. That's all you need to know, We have voted this post down several times. Do your own homework. We're not telling you whether or not we're delegates. Cause we will not be tempted by your Goldman Sachs taxpayer bilked money. We cannot be bribed or bought. We stand for liberty and justice for all.

Found Paul by examining all the candidates. Paul is exactly right on all issues and I would argue anyone about it.

The mainstream media has an obvious bias agasint Paul, and the reasons for that are very dubious.

American needs real change. Obama/Romney/the media; all backed by bankers. Enough is enough, Wake up america, that glowing box in your living room is not good. Reality is, we are currently borrowing money to just pay the debt on the money we owe! Financial collapse, bankruptcy, etc....while sending our troops across the world for situations created by the media.

What brought you to Ron Paul?
Knowing in my heart that if we don't follow Ron Paul's principles, this country will continue to be driven over the cliff. Knowing this and feeling passionate about it, is why I would step forward to become a delegate (for the first in my life) and for Ron Paul.

I y'am what I y'am

30something political junkie.

Turned on to the good Dr. in 07, just after I took notice of the original TEA party rally. I swore off politics for a bit and started paying attention again in 09. In 10, after yet another year of snarling at liberals as a TEA party member, I saw "In Defense Of Liberty" and got my eyes opened.

I spent a year batting around these crazy ideas of "no unconstitutional wars" and other strange and new feelings about liberty. One day, I was on a political forum and it hit me... it makes sense. At that point, I shifted gears and became a hardcore Paul supporter.

How old are you? I am 56 and

How old are you?

I am 56 and lucky to still be alive with the poison food , water , air , vaccines and drugs that you the Federal Gov't don't really care about .

Where are you from?

I am a American , a Constitutionist American , plain and simple.

What do you do?

Presently , anything I can to elimanate the communists , socialists , globalists and anti-Americans from Washington DC and the Corporate World , one in the same .

What’s your political history?

I use to vote for the candidate by what they said and then suffered for what they did not do . I now know that it's what the candidate has done rather then what they will say .

What brought you to Ron Paul?

John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington.

Just saw this...looks like my post is moot.


Not saying since I know that

Not saying since I know that the opposition uses these threads to gather info on who plans to be a delegate for Ron Paul in the conventions.

Loose lips sink ships. By putting all of our info in one place it just makes it easier for them to work against us.

What do you do? - Whatever I please, as long as I don't hurt anyone.

What’s your political history? - Wore a McGovern button in high school and don't even remember why. Nothing else until 2004. LP until 12/2011 - went GOP for RP. PC now with name on ballot for State Committeeman with District Caucus tomorrow. Wish me luck.

What brought you to Ron Paul? - Michael Badnarik--->Dr. Mary Ruwart--->Congressman Dr. Ron Paul. This was a logical progression for me, and those who know the first two names. If you don't, PLEASE find out for yourself! If not for these two AMAZING people on this planet, I would not be right here right now this second fighting the good fight.

Grew up in northern Indiana. Currently live in Sweden. Last US residence in Texas.

What do you do?
Lots of stuff. Most of my career day-job stuff has been in software. I'm an entrepreneur and have built one of the world's first real, working standard websocket servers, along with a revolutionary framework for distributed applications. In my spare time, I've been a policy analyst and writer for more than two decades. Now, I just contribute commentary to The Libertarian Examiner. BTW: I even have a personal life, but I won't go into that.

What’s your political history?
Deep question. I suppose I was a young Republican (not meaning that I belonged to a group by that name, just that I leaned heavily Republican when I was young). As a result of my policy analysis work, I found out that the Republican Party had metaphorically gone south.

What brought you to Ron Paul?
I first heard of Ron Paul, and heard him on the radio a few times, when I lived in Texas, near his district. I was amazed at the enthusiasm people in Texas had for him, way back then, and certainly not just the college crowd. I've written that I'm sure that his home district is where Paulbot Zero lives. I'm sorry to say (sorry that this is true) that I didn't consider his run for president much before this year. But after considering the others in the Republican field carefully this time around, he was the only guy left. Then I started considering him more carefully ... and well, you know. Now I'm a Paulbot too. The Constitution. It's a good thing.

Correlation does not prove causality!


Hi folks I am the gal who chaired Paul's campaign in Johnson County Iowa. With the help of many volunteers and donations we were able to put up 2 billboards and open a grassroots office. It was pivotal for Ron Paul's campaign and the delegates. I am asking for your help again. I have been so inspired by the fight for liberty I am taking on a very tough race for the state senate. I need funds. Here's what I need them for.... I need money for signs-$1000/brochures-$1000 to start-/t-shirts-$500-$1000 to start/stickers $200 (used for parades), gun show entry fees-2 left before vote at $45 each, barn sized signs at least 20 of them at $65 each. Mailers-for every 2000 people cost is approx. $1000 -there are 60,000 people in the district-this covers printing/paper/design/and postage. As you can tell I need quite a bit. You can help by donating. There are several ways to get to me. The best way to keep track of the countdown is by going to this chip in that I just created.... http://shannonforsenate.chipin.com/shannon-for-senate-campaign I need all the help I can get right now. So much is required right up front and the bulk or the organizations out there won't help till the last 60 days. These materials can't wait till then if I want anyone to know who I am and what I stand for. It's imperative to get the word out NOW. Please help! Thank you,

Do a search on Jaymac. This person should be kicked-off of here. He is so far out-side that he can not be seen. Please Daily Paul take Jaymac and banned him/her from your site.

Do you really think that

by NOT volunteering your age and location that you remain safe?!? Fact is, if they want to compile a file on you, they can and will. They can probably come on this site and get names and addresses for every single one of us with no cooperation from the site hosts.

I am from Houston Texas otherwise known as Space City.
I do not keep track of age as though I were a mere tick in time.
Instead I view myself as an astronaut in constant motion traveling about and exploring the universe.
With that I will profess that I am nearing completion of my 45th orbit around the sun.
I once gave up on my dreams but now I have reclaimed them and I intend to be a certified culinarian by years end. That should be just after Ron Paul’s victory.
I was Libertarian before being Tea Party was cool.
I was one of nearly a half million freedom loving individuals that voted for Ron Paul in 1988.
I was one of the many who unwaveringly wrote Ron Paul’s name in, in 2008.
I will be amongst the throng of voters who put Ron Paul into the White House in 2012.
Glad to be here.

An immigrant

A little over 10 years ago I came to the US. I'm originally from Western Europe. I was looking for a good place to develop my professional career in the Computer field and there were more US companies doing interesting work. I wasn't fleeing from oppression or poverty or anything like that, just looking for where I could find better opportunities to do good work.

I consider myself of "liberal" tendencies (liberal as 19th century classical liberalism, NOT social liberalism).

I learned about Ron Paul back in 2008 from the investment newsletters published by Agora financial.

In my home country we would go through cycles of "socialists" (social democrats) spending their way into bankrupting the country, counterbalanced by "conservatives" that would get the economy back on track. Then people would get complacent and vote the big spenders back in. My feeling in the US has been that for Democrat or Republican governments, there was little difference regarding the direction of the government spending their way into deeper debt. When I read about Ron Paul I was pleasantly surprised by his trying to turn around the US economy and proposing "uncommon" common sense policies. In my home country I was strongly anti-socialist and always looking forward to the periods when the economy got back on track. I hope Ron Paul can provide similar guidance into better days for the US. As a resident non-citizen I can not cast a ballot for anyone but I wish you the best of luck and maybe I can help in something.
