Dr. Ron Paul is running for the presidency of the United States. His goal is to restore our sovereignty, our liberty, and our freedom. As a result, the media and the established politicians in Washington, D.C. have united against him.
As evidenced by articles and polls that either exclude his candidacy altogether or refer to him as a “fringe” or “darkhorse” candidate, as well as a virtual blackout of any news relating to Dr. Paul, the media has indulged in several tactics that won’t bear close scrutiny. How can the front-runner in the straw polls be a fringe candidate? How can the lead fundraiser of both parties be a darkhorse candidate?
The founders of our nation foresaw that any government ruled by humans would tend toward corruption, so the Constitution was created to limit the powers of the government. Yet slowly, almost imperceptibly, our Constitutional rights have been infringed upon and eroded by our elected officials.
Both supporters and detractors of Ron Paul’s candidacy agree that if he wins the Republican nomination, he has excellent odds of winning the general election. Professional gamblers have taken note of the situation, adjusting his odds of winning from 200/1 to 15/1. Is he not the only candidate who plans to end the war immediately? Is he not the only candidate who puts Americans before the American bureaucracy?
The true battle is in the primary elections, where only a minority of Americans vote. But as Samuel Adams, one of the founders of our great country said, “It does not take a majority to prevail...but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."
Once the primary hurdle has been passed, there is no doubt that Ron Paul’s candidacy will soar. His message resonates with the American people. His straw poll numbers and head-to-head records are a good indicator of what the world can expect in a general election. We want our freedom and our liberties protected. Most of all, his honest patriotism has reignited the flames of liberty that had nearly been extinguished here in the United States.
As you love liberty and your country, vote for Ron Paul in the primary elections.
