Ron Paul Support Around the Country

These days there is so much positive Ron Paul news around the country that it is hard to keep up with it all. Here are just a handful of articles that have come out in the past few days. I’ve picked out some key paragraphs from these articles for those who just want to skim them, otherwise the original links are included also:

Ron Paul: 1st or 2nd in Iowa?

From the Iowa Independant

. . . State field director Steve Meyer is predicting a second or even first place finish in Iowa and a New Hampshire win. “You’re going o see Democrats go to the caucus, you’re going to see independents register as Republicans and go to the caucus. Look at the donations. We raised $4.2 million in one day and that all came from individuals. $20 here, $100 there and no other campaign is doing that.”

New Jersey legislator speaks out on why he endorsed Ron Paul

From USA Daily

I believe that members of our military recognize that our forces are not unlimited, and that the current policy of deployment in 130 different countries is not a sound military policy to provide an adequate defense to our country. I have three sons serving in the military, and I know that each joined to protect the United States, not to serve as a police force to prop up a foreign government. Ron Paul embraces the position that you do not deploy the military without a declaration of war as the Constitution requires. I strongly agree with that position.

Ron Paul Support in New York

From New York Press

“Either they’re going to be apathetic or they’re going to get on the Ron Paul train,” Knapp says.

“Word of mouth is key,” Knapp says. “Every Ron Paul supporter tells more people about it—it’s not like they keep it a secret.”

Across the country and even the world, 1,083 Ron Paul MeetUp groups have formed, more than for any other presidential candidate, of either party. The largest is in Austin, Texas, not far from the coastal district Paul calls home. With 775 members at last count, New York City’s ranks second.

Ron Paul, M.D. Speaks on Health Care

From the Dartmouth Review

. . . Paul began his remarks by telling students that, “the medical system is going well except for a few groups: the patients, the doctors, the hospitals, the labs, and the politicians. Everybody else is happy.”

. . . Paul noted that because of all these governmental programs “charity work doesn’t seem to exist anymore; yet there was a time when there was substantial charity work….We’ve gotten this way because the government put us this way.”

The Meaning Of Ron Paul’s Support

From TheDay.com, Connecticut

First, consider that Paul’s average donation on Nov. 5 was $103, more than twice as high as his average donation, and that the “money bomb” event was organized independently from his campaign. Paul’s supporters are individuals. They are not the weapons industry, corporations, special-interest groups, or anyone else seeking favor or privilege.

Paul’s supporters want honesty, openness, fairness, equality, prosperity and peace, not to mention our inalienable individual rights back. And they want America to stop meddling in the affairs of other peoples. This a bottom-up, grass-roots movement. And, it is coming on like gangbusters, a fact that concerns those who love power and authority.

Digg!

  1. Ron Paul is a dangerous whackjob. He claimed during the first Persian Gulf War that American forces were shooting women and children in the streets. He also has made statements that reflect his underlying (and unfounded) belief that there was a massive coverup of the events of 9/11 at the Federal level.

    Oh and 9/11 was our fault, if he is to believed.

    The only reason that there is any palpable support for him is because of the large masses who either use narcotics regularly, have a mental illness, or scored below 80 on their last IQ exam.

  2. Hmmm, thanks for your thoughts. You’re completely wrong on all accounts but I do like to keep an open forum here.

    Seriously, insulting Ron Paul supporters’ IQs as a last-ditch effort to discredit them? Thats the move of a lazy, non-thinker who has no educated position to debate.

    Note: Ron Paul does not believe the government was involved in 9/11. But you need to really look at the evidence and understand the reality of the “blowback” principle, relating to the US meddling in the middle East. Its simple, the US has been overthrowing Middle Eastern leaders and bombing countries there for years. Of course they are going to be upset.

    He has never said that the innocent people who died on 9/11 were to blame. Its all politics and bad foreign policy by US politicians.

  3. A lot of Ron Paul supporters are somewhat against the government. So conspriacy theorists, 9/11 truthers, liberals. It doesn’t mean anything, but rumors form.

    I don’t think he believes in the 9/11 government cover-up crap, but did take in consideration those who did or something like that.

  4. The majority of Ron Paul supporters are NOT “against the government.” Its the opposite in fact, we’re FOR a good, honest government. We love the rule of Constitutional law. We love the protection of our liberties as promised in the Bill of Rights.

    Ron Paul supporters love the vision of liberty, sound money, and peacefully co-existing factions that the Founders had, and that many Americans and politicians throughout our history have had. A government that adheres to these same ideals will provide the best protection and guarantee of life and freedom for its people.

    Most Paul supporters simply feel that many politicians have lost sight of this and are working for their own benefit instead of the country as a whole.

    Personally, what I want (what I believe Ron Paul will help us achieve) is for us to get back to our roots, back to what initially made this country great. I love America and I’m just concerned about our welfare, thats all. If we more fully reestablish the government we’re supposed to have, then only good things will result. Our country will prosper, we’ll have better international relations, and we’ll be more free. I definitely am FOR this kind of government.

    By giving a smart alec, unresearched argument like that, you only discredit yourself.
