Many are well aware of Ron Paul’s views on Iraq and foreign policy, but I think it is time to investigate his opinions and voting record on other issues. The first issue to be discussed is near and dear to me at this time. Censorship.

To depart from the Ron Paul lovefest (although he’s a constitutionalist and supports the 2nd amendment), a story from Detroit proves (yet again) that guns deter crime, especially concealed ones. From the article:
“A robbery and crime spree aided by an unloaded gun came to a halt late Thursday when the gunman met more than his match: a gun with bullets.”
and the article ends with:
“After the shooting, police questioned the 53-year-old man and released him, noting that he had a valid concealed weapons permit. Then they gave him back his gun.”
More guns = less crime and gun control = bad. Support the 2nd amendment.
Ron Paul appeared on CNN’s Late Edition on May 20, 2007. This guy constantly speaks the truth. In this interview he again must answer critics who say he isn’t Republican and question whether or not he should be in the debates.
Another good clip from Bill Maher’s show
Stop Dreaming… Restore the Republic
Pretty funny stuff. Family Guy shows the lunacy of people saying Rudy Guliani “won” the debate the other night. Read More »
Fox News touts the slogan “We Report, You Decide.” Well after last night they should probably change that to “We Report, And Tell You What To Think.”
Following the debate, the text message poll revealed that Ron Paul lead all other candidates with 30% of the votes. Sean Hannity exclaimed something like, “We all know Ron Paul did not win the debate.” His first reaction was pretty priceless as well. Thanks for letting us decide.
Tomorrow night will mark the 2nd GOP Presidential Debate on the Fox News Channel. I’m excited to hear some more from Ron Paul as well as learn about how the FairTax rally went which is occurring near the Debate venue.
In other Ron Paul news I found this gem of an article.
I’ve now found two items online regarding Ron Paul. One is his post debate press release regarding his huge increase in “word of mouth” on the web. Available here.
The other is a link to just the Ron Paul bits from the over 90 minute debate. I like it because during the debate it seemed like he was being ignored at times. This video makes it seem like ALL the other candidates were ignored. Read More »
There’s a phenomenon that has occurred several times since 1996 when I began voting Libertarian based on principle. It is that while watching “my” candidate(s) espouse views that are not considered mainstream, I put myself in the “average” american’s shoes, and cringe a bit because I just know how ill-received some of these views will be.
