14. Don't buy Ron Paul's lines...do some research on him.
Edited on Sun Oct-09-11 09:50 AM by freshstart
I can't believe that anyone who wants to follow the constitution would have been involved in this:

Furthermore, he was a plaintiff on the side of Citizens United:

I see what the Ron Paul people are up to, trying to get Dems to switch parties to vote in the GOP primary for Paul. Personally, I think there is a lot more under the surface to Ron Paul. He and his son are on a push to end unions, they both have close ties to "Right to Work" people.

Ron Paul from the Congressional Record in 2001:
But todays economy is unlike anything the world has ever known. The world economy is more integrated than
ever before. Indeed, the effort by international agencies to expand world trade has had results, some good.
Labor costs have been held in check, industrial producers have moved to less regulated low costs, low tax countries

while world mobility has aided these trends with all being helped with advances in computer technology.
http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getpage.cgi?pos...

He's tied to the Kochs...regardless of what his people say. These are all Koch funded groups on his website:
http://www.free-nefl.com/html/nefl.html

He's been tied to the conservative caucus and Lewis Lehrman for years. Ron Paul wrote the book "A Case for Gold" with Lehrman, and Lehrman was an investor in George Bush's Arbusto Oil. "The roster of prominent partners in Bush's oil ventures could have been extracted from a business world's who's who: drugstore magnate and onetime New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Lewis Lehrman and Lehrman family trusts ($140,500 over a three-year period)"
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/campaigns...

Lehrman was also involved in PNAC.
http://www.opednews.com/new%20american%20century.htm

And Ron Paul brought Lehrman before his committee this year.

And, Ron Paul has Doug Bandow on his campaign....and he's tied to Cato and criminal Jack Abramoff.
http://www.businessweek.com/bwdaily/dnflash/dec2005/nf2...

And Ron Paul's has been involved with him for some time. If you think Rick Perry invented that SS was a ponzi scheme, think again. Bandow said it in 2002 on Ron Paul's Freeman website.

So, no...I'm not voting for Ron Paul.
