A letter from Ron Paul to his supporters

Filed under: politics,Ron Paul — iknowkeith @ 10:05 am

This is an email from Ron Paul to his supporters. Looks like things are going pretty well in the Ron Paul campaign.

July 9, 2007

ron_paul.jpgA local TV station just called, wanting to follow up on the Sunday ABC interview. Their stated reason: “Your campaign is really picking up steam!”

Darn right, thanks to you and so many others. Of course, some in the media want to see this campaign lose steam. But they’re not going to get their way.

I know that every day: for example, whenever I attend one of our big, enthusiastic meetup groups.

As I look around, I always think: how lucky I am to be part of such a movement. And how many young people care deeply about our ideas.

A friend of mine used to wonder what would become of our movement when all the older members of it passed on. Now, he says, there is no doubt that we are sowing the seeds of an even more vibrant and principled freedom movement. The future can be bright indeed.

At a rally in Nevada the other day, I asked a husband and wife how they had gotten interested in this campaign. “Though our 13-year-old son,” they told me.

Remember the complaints that kids were addicted to TV and video games, and ignored the world around them? There are plenty who don’t fit that bill. And the tool in their hands and ours is the internet. With it, we can circumvent the biased media.

Later this week I go to Google—perhaps the nerve center of the internet—at the company’s invitation, to talk to all their employees. Brilliant young techies are part of our constituency, and I am looking forward to that visit. There are two rallies too.

Won’t you help keep our internet campaign going and growing? Please aid me in traveling to our rallies, and in getting the word out in every way possible. Make your most generous donation https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate/.

This campaign is picking up steam. But the engine needs fuel. Please join me https://www.ronpaul2008.com/join/ in this great endeavor for America’s future.

Sincerely,

Ron

  5. Ron Paul can even work with Dennis Kucininh and has said he likes to do so when he can.
    What he has in common with the other two is that they all are up against a biased mainstream media.

  21. Freedom is good. Liberty is good. Ron Paul is good.

    Ron Paul is the exact opposite of universal health care. While Mr. Moore and Ron Paul disagree on health care, they do both want us out of the war. I’d guess the comment about RON PAUL + MICHAEL MOORE is just by someone who knows little about them, just that they are big in pop culture right now.

  22. I think that both Paul and Michael Moore are quite opposite in their political views but both are standing up against corruption. I’m more politically aligned with Paul, but I appreciate that Moore is able to stand up to people like CNN and call their crap. We don’t need everybody to be of the same political beliefs to have a thriving country, we just need people who are active in trying to make a better America.

  26. Michael Moore and Ron Paul have nothing in common except both are trying to speak truth to power. I’m pretty sure Ron Paul’s not the person to go to get universal health care (which I’m in favor of). That said, I have a hard time putting Ron Paul into the “not going to consider” column. I’m a lifelong Democrat. I have never voted for a Republican. I don’t believe today’s Republican party (at least those in positions of power) have enough respect for individual liberty and the freedom to be left alone by government.

    I don’t know what to think. Ron’s doing better than I’d expect, but he’s still got a big hill to climb. Right now he’s got less than 1/7 of what the other candidates have money-wise. All Ron’s got is the ability to speak the truth. I like seeing he’s getting media coverage, but his candidacy is fraught with danger. He has enemies on all sides, including his own party.

    But a freedom-first Republican is the kind of Republican I would enthusiastically support. I would hope that if nothing else the other candidates in this race would realize that increasing liberty is the way to go, and not the other way around.

  27. Dear Dr. Paul,

    I am so excited about your campaign, and I have been trying to do my part to get your message out to the residents of my area, Johnson City and Kingsport TN. I have never worked so hard for a politician, but I firmly believe in your message and the hope that you represent for the future of this country. At the rate that we are losing liberty in this country, I firmly believe that you may be our last hope. Our country is at a crossroads- we will devolve into a dangerous empire, or we will reclaim the freedom guaranteed by the founders. There is no third alternative. I wish you the best of luck!

    The website I linked is dedicated to getting Ron’s message out. Please stop by and leave a comment to tell me what you think!

  30. I’m confused why people always say who is going to win and who isn’t? The only thing that matters are the candidates track record and their stances on issues.. not what people think about the viability of their campaign. Keep it real people.. let people decide for themselves based on the facts.

  31. if ron paul’s message of freedom resonates with you but you’d like to see health care reform, campaign for it at the state level. the states are certainly large enough bodies to either create state-run insurance, or to force the private healthcare companies to reform. plus this way we have multiple approaches to see what works best. the federal government brought us an elective war of aggression – it certainly isn’t going to be responsive to the people on healthcare.

If puppets like Giuliani, Clinton, McCain etc win, thats when i will feel that I lost and nothing will change. Plus, I am not even american its just that the US influence is so strong that sometimes I think the whole world population would have to have a say in a true system.
    Anyway, let the best (and not the best connected) one win!

  34. Ron Paul and Michael Moore may have some opposing views, but I believe in many ways they are similar. They are both lonely voices crying out the truth in a wilderness of lies, they both devote their energies to getting out the truth and trying to turn this country around and improve the lot of the american people. They both oppose the war, and they’re both victims of mainstream media slant and falsehoods. I believe two honest, principled, concerned citizens such as Ron Paul and Michael Moore could work together and compromise and do some real good for this country (assuming Moore was a politician, which clearly he is not).

  35. Joseph,
    If you understand what Ron Paul stands for you realize his personal views on any issue are not relevant to yours or anyone else. He places the utmost value on his liberty to hold his own beliefs and opinions and your freedom to do the same. His whole modus operandi dictates that he would never force his views on this country or anyone – in exchange for you doing likewise. The last thing Dr Paul would ever do is outlaw gay marriage (or virtually any other activity/behavior) on a federal level. On the other hand he may play a part in granting the states the rights and powers to outlaw whatever behaviors they may democratically decide. So it could become illegal to be a practicing homosexual in Texas (which I believe it actually is currently for males), which would lead to many people, gay and straight, moving to other states which have no such restrictions or perhaps even encourage it (lower birth rates?). Same with abortion. And fatty foods. And drugs and pollution and every other thing under the sun.

    Comment by Michael — July 10, 2007 @ 6:59 pm | Reply

  36. The thing about Ron Paul that i like is the fact that the government he wants to set up here is one where the Gay Marriage issue wouldn’t even matter. You would be free. The government would not be dictating your life that much. The Gay Marriage issue would be a state-level issue and would have nothing to do with Paul. You, personally, have a much greater chance of getting issues like that into debate in your own state, rather than on a federal level. States would also, in theory, be free to start their own state-wide Universal Healthcare plan. if it worked, other states might follow. The point is that Ron Pauls specific moral beliefs wouldn’t affect you. His policy is to NOT ALLOW politicians to impose morality. So long as the constitution is upheld, which would be one of the few, and the most important job of the federal-level government.

    See, the ‘sides’ are trying to trick people, make them think that because Paul has certain views on specific issues like that, like abortion, like gay marriage, etc… that he’ll use his presidency to try to make those views law. It is unfortunate that people ARE so easilly tricked this way, because this IS the basic agenda that many politicians have. You can have a Libertarian Federal Government and it would only impact you to a certain extent. The State will affect you more, and that particular government can take any shape you’d like. It can be extremely liberal, or extremely conservative or anything in between. it is a better way to run a country of our size and population. Don’t be fooled tho, you will still be paying taxes, just not super-massive federal-level taxes.

    Universal Healthcare would be entirely possible with a Libertarian in the presidency. For him to deny the states to implement it if it is what the majority of the people in that state want.. THAT is what flies in the face of libertarianism.

  37. Joseph: Surely you advocate less government intrusion in your life? The remarkable thing about Dr Paul’s principled ideals of proper government is that you don’t have to agree with him on moral issues to know that your individual rights will be safeguarded under his presidency. Dr Paul voted against the marriage ammendment (something I assume you admire him for), not because he is anti-traditional-marriage, but because he does not wish to grant the federal government such an unconstitutional power over your rights. Can you not stand up for someone with such integrity?

  40. Dr. Paul, thank you for your inspiring and perseverance throughout your unfortunately lonely tenure in Congress. Conscientious Americans should have listened to you throughout your career. But that matters less now because new technologies have preserved your wisdom. You message and Google / Youtube fit well together!

  41. Democrats and Republicans are corrupt. How do you think Bushy and Killer (Cheny) managed to get as much power as they have? The election of a Democratic congress has done exactly nothing to curb this trend, nor will it ever. Democrats ran as fast as they could to make the neocons who they are today.

    Dr. Paul isn’t likely to win anything because he espouses values Americans have long ago abandoned because we are a nation of over-fed sheep, who love to be politically correct above all else. Voting for Paul is a f**t in a whirlwind but it has one important effect. It sends a message to the fat cats that they should be a little careful; that is about all we can expect in the current American political reality.

    It is time for some very radical ideas to get grass roots support. One more election cycle and it won’t matter much because we will all be eating and taking our penicillin or chemotherapy out of a government trough. At the very least we need to do the right thing and get this man as many votes as possible to get this Iraq thing as done as it can be.

    I wonder what he thinks about the growing impeach Bushy and Killer movement?

  42. Michael, et al:

    I certainly appreciate your sentiments, and it’s fundamentally moving to see the kind of dedication you have to this man; however, you misunderstand my objection to him. It is not because I believe he would attempt to further his own personal beliefs through the presidency. My concern is with any individual who holds the opinions he does on this topic. It isn’t necessarily that I think he would make a bad President, but rather a core difference that – to date – no individual has been able to convince me to overlook.

    I think your example of Texas is perfect illustration of this. While it is valid to say that states should ultimately hold the power on an issue like marriage, the thing most Libertarians overlook is that the Constitution they claim to uphold specifically outlays the responsibility of the judiciary to ensure that no law be enacted that discriminates against a group of people. What strikes me so strongly with the letter I linked above is this reference – several years ago – to what Mr. Bush has coined “activist judges.” These guys have successfully tricked people into believing that the judges who overturn laws restricting abortions or the teaching of Creationism are overstepping their bounds, when in reality their basis for existing is ensuring that such discriminatory laws are overturned.

    Last note, Squiggly: It is highly presumptuous to think that someone with differing opinions has simply been “tricked.”

  43. In 2004 the infamous saying is “how can you vote against your best interests” but after reading this blog, it all makes sense. I mean if you vote against your best interests and suffer for a few years you can say “government failed” and you can push your agenda but at the same time, how do you trust corporate america to be honest in a libertarian utopian frree market where collusion and corruption would be ignored as “market conditions”? Also, i think there is a lot that Moore and Paul have in common that COLLUSION IS PART OF THE PROBLEM and there is no absolute way to solve it other than giving the power back to the people.

    Its funny how you guys hate government, constantly throw around socialism and communism like you know what it means. COmmunism my friend was an absolute and it failed, do you think an absolute based on “Free markets” is any better than an absolute based on “communism”?

    The best way to fix america isn’t to tear it apart, but to take the power back from greedy corporate interests and give it to the people. IF the people elect to change/reform or demolish government then it was the will of the people – but until we give the pwoer back to the people, Ron Paul will only be hanging off the coat tails of the republican party and that my friend will have him tooth and nail hooked to the idealogy of the same old BS we get today.

    I’d vote for RP if he was running libertarian ticket and striving to make a difference. I know his voting record and have strong support for him but don’t preach to me about some utopian society based upon the free market when as a society we don’t have the gumption to stand up and fight for our rights to even bring light of a free market when WE ARE THE GOVERNMENT. (or should be)

  44. I would like to point out that libertarian views are largely incompatible with the situation addressed by Michael Moore’s recent documentary “SiCKO.” There is tremendous regulation in the health care industry beyond that which would be considered laissez faire economic policy. Short of entirely deregulating the industry, a free market will not be achieved, and at this juncture even the most true-to-form libertarians could agree that fully socialized health care will benefit the United States socially and economically as opposed to the current system. I am a proponent of idealism in social progressiveness, but economically we must be as realists to really bring this nation back to its former economic greatness.

  45. One Liberal Lunatic + One Libertarian Lunatic are supposed to fix what’s wrong with this Country! That is preposterous. That is almost as preposterous as Ron Paul’s ideas and Michael Moore’s movies.
    Looking at Ron Paul’s current financial status and past fund raising abilities as well as being on the bottom of the third tier of candidates on the Republican side, he should team up with his lunatic liberal buddy, Dennis Kucinich, and throw in the towel and quit mudding up the field of candidates.
    Looking at Michael Moore’s ideas and the fact that he LOVES seeing his face and name in the news, he should say goodbye to us all one last time, he is almost as obnoxious as Fat Rosie, and drop out of sight until after 01/01/2100.

  49. Joseph @ R29- I’m a gay man, and I’m working hard to get Dr. Paul elected. Yes, I wish that I could marry my partner, but there are things FAR more important than gay marriage. Ending the PATRIOT (sic) ACT, removing our troops from Iraq post-haste, ending the IRS- these are things REALLY worth fighting for. Gay Marriage can wait until we have a free country. Dr. Paul has stated that he thinks government should stay out of marriage altogether, allowing people to marry whomever they choose. That’s good enough for me, and far better than anything the other candidates- Democrat or Republican- are offering right now.

  50. The federal government waste so much of our money, national health care has to start on a state level. That way some states can be more progressive than others. If it is run well other states will follow. Ron Paul wants to return the power to the states. We don’t need the federal government to get these things done.

  57. I’m not American, but I believe Ron Paul is the only candidate whose voting record shows that he can make America what is was always meant to be: a beacon of liberty to the world. If Paul can make the USA a republic again and squash the imperial ambitions of the Washington elite (the neocons on the right and the “humanitarians” on the left), the rest of the world can once again look to America as a role model and not as a policeman or enforcer.

    None of Clinton’s social contract out on the USA agenda,
    no more business as usual in the GOP and White House.

    Give the USA the American Government that George Washington would recognize and be proud of,
    not sick to his stomach – retching on the floor looking at the domination of federal tax and spend programs everywhere…

  70. Paul has good Republican politics but what of his racism accusations like saying “we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.”

  71. As far as I can tell, Squiggly’s comment (#36) is about right concerning Paul. Basically I think he wants to return us to being The United STATES, rather than The United STATE, where each state can work things out pretyy much the way they want.

    In effect, he wants to make everything that goes on in Washington a whole lot less important and central to the lives of all Americans.

    I don’t know if that’s practical, politically, and certainly Paul’s quite a longshot for the presidency, but the longer he stays in the race the better, because we really need someone bringing up these “oddball” issues like the Constitution, limited government, freedom, etc.!

  72. #63 you didn’t make one good point. I do agree that Dr Paul supporters have been a little extreme (hell, maybe a little crazy at times) but that has nothing to do with what he stands for and what he means to bring to the table for the United States. Also, since when did having enthusiastic supporters become a bad thing? Its passion that drives them and that is what is needed.

    #65 Wow, name calling. can’t think of making a real point? The man is very sane and many of the people that support him are just as sane. I think it is time for you and #63 to take her advice and “…get with the program.”

  73. OK, don’t know if this was already said or not, but in comment #11 there was a statement saying that “limited government” means: “no public education, no medicare/medicaid, no funding for things like cancer research, environmental protection, low income housing, etc.”

    I have to completely disagree with this statement. The fact that those things would no longer be run by the government does not mean that they would not exist. The fact remains that a “limited government” would mean MUCH lower taxes resulting in a decrease in welfare, lower cost of utilities and gas, and lower cost of healthcare and education. So where is the bad part of this? Oh, I forgot, we wouldn’t be letting the government decide what to do with OUR money. I guess that’s bad, huh?

  74. Remember limited government is a good thing, it’s important that we run our own lives. Ron Paul is on the right path, please join him.

  75. Someone earlier in postings said “Ron Paul Rocks”, I must take time to correct what is wrong with that statement. I believe it should read: Ron Paul has rocks in his head! Listen to his cockamamie ideas and you will wonder how he escaped from the looney bin and is still on the loose. He would make a great pair up with Dennis Kucinich.

  76. I DID listen to his ideas to which I was introduced to a short time ago…
    That is why I support Ron Paul – a man of unimpeachable (funny that) integrity who is an unabashedly steadfast Constitutionalist.

  77. Ron Paul is an Obstetrician (delivers babies) and is a Representative from Texas who is fighting for the rights of the average citizen! He is opposing the NASCO..North American Super Corridor Highway from Mexico to Canada, which is to have a China hub in Kansas City…Ron opposes the IRS and would like to lower taxes and give the money back to the people of the USA…Ron wants reform in almost all policies and wants to give the control back to the Americans…Ron STRONGLY SUPPORTS THE CONSTITUTION AND ITS LAWS!!!!

    Dr. Ron Paul is NOT taking any campaign contributions from the Elitists or Corporations…he is only taking in money from private citizens. He does not show favoritism and believes strongly against stealing from others…

    It’s a new day….the R(3VOL)UTION …..has begun…as an ex Libertarian only running on
    the republican ticket because of his abortion issues is FOR THE PEOPLE…
    NOT….FOR THE GOVERNMENT AND ITS NEW WORLD ORDER…or the NAU- THE NORTH
    AMERICAN UNION (the Joining of Canada and Mexico to the US-with new money, constitution, microchip, ID, etc) which Ron opposes…

    Wake up time America…STAND UP FOR FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY …IT’S

  78. Ron Paul needs name recognition. Forward links to RonPaul2008.com, YouTube videos, etc. to people you think haven’t heard of him — even people you think would disagree with him. Get his name out there — on buttons, bumper stickers, whatever. Oh, and don’t forget to send money, even small amounts — number of contributors counts, too.

  82. How can you say that Michael Moore (the socialist) and Ron Paul (the libertarian) are incompatible with each other? Probably because someone hasn’t been doing their reading…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarian_socialism

    Libertarian Socialism is a movement that takes the best of both these ideas and is adopted by several world famous intellectuals such as Noam Chomsky. America, please stop thinking what the beautiful people on the TV Box tell you to think and listen to the smartest people in the world. Our educational levels might actually rise after doing that.

  84. Dear Dr. Ron,

    We just absolutely love you here.I live in Ohio and this coming month we are going to sacrifice(donate to your campaign) because Freedom means much more to me than materialism.I am going to order a large amount of your hand bills and (distribute them) and will most likely be going door to door as well as to heavily populated areas(shopping centers,etc.) to get your message out.Freedom is a message that crosses ALL boundaries(cultural,racial lines,religious etc.).Everybody wants it.Freedom is absolutely PRICELESS.

    Thank-You for being a voice and taking a stand for us.Thank-you for not being a member of the CFR=NWO=slavery to all.I realize the danger your run for presidentcy poses upon you and your family and we will all be diligently praying for your safety and that of your family.

    I have NEVER been so involved in the political arena as I am with this presidential election,thanks to you.You are a very intelligent teacher that breaks politics down in such a way that the average american can grasp it conceptually.

    Ron Paul-you are like the voice crying in the wilderness and the only current presidential candidate(I feel) that is a TRUE beacon of light/truth in this presidential rat race.A true man of integrity without a forked tongue.A phenomenal role model example for what patriotism should be per our founding fathers.

    I cannot thank you enough.Tears have often come to my eyes when I hear you speak and see all those that support you,because their is a ray of hope after all this chaos the past several decades.

  85. all of the Ron Paul haters make me laugh. That just prooves he is the best candidate when you have charachter assassination going on. why would people say he didn’t have a chance if they really believed that? Ron Paul will be the next president because our country is too smart to pass up such a gift. He is what America has been waiting for for several decades. And I have faith that Americans won’t mess up again like they did with Bush.

  88. #83: Collectivism (Society > individual) and Libertarianism (Individual > Society) are naturally opposed to each other. I can’t help but laugh at the notion that a people will have respect for individual rights, and at the SAME TIME, denounce private property rights.
