Tucker Carlson “of the right” did his best to smear Ron Paul as well, when he personally picked up a brothel owner, and took him to a Ron Paul rally, so he could then release a media report that said “brothel owners support Ron Paul.”


The fact is that President Ron Paul will not affect abortion rights because he doesn’t believe that is the President’s role.  A President is incapable of outlawing abortion, only the Supreme Court and/or Congress could do so.  The GOP really never wanted to outlaw abortion, oh some Congresspeople or Senators may really feel against it, but the Party machine needs it to get poor whites, some poor blacks and Hispanics to vote against their own interest election after elections.  The GOP had absolute control of all three branches of power during Reagan and Bush II.  Did they outlaw abortion?  NOPE.  They never will.  They need it.


However, they will use it to manipulate liberals and progressives into being against Ron Paul and they’ll spew this misinformation out through the liberal media.  I’ve grown suspicious of the “liberal” media that I once believed in, since I’ve seen them attack anyone who questions the official story of 9/11.  William Colby, a former CIA Director, once admitted to America, “there is no media of any significance in the US that is not controlled by the CIA.”  That would include significant left media.  Why would they leave liberal media un-infiltrated?  They wouldn’t.


Ron Paul’s supporters are a very diverse crowd, some of whom I disagree with on many issues as a liberal progressive.  However, Paul’s commitment to the constitution, the limits of government’s ability to spy on me and to use my taxes to attack poor people in other nations so that corporations can loot their resources and/or use them as slave labor to force my standard of living farther down, down down . . . is something that many people who disagree with me on many other things can agree with me on.


Ron Paul is the perfect candidate.  He is pro freedom.  He does not believe in the Washington running our lives.  He cannot be attacked by the gun lobby.  He cannot be attacked by the anti-abortion lobby.  Because he doesn’t believe that Washington is the arbiter on such issues of personal freedom.  I have been a supporter of gun control for years.  But, after I’ve seen what I’ve seen since 2000 and 9/11/2001, I realize we have much more to fear from the dissolution of democracy and the emergence of a totalitarian torture state, than we do from people owing guns.


The GOP uses the gun issue like they use abortion.  To get poor people to support Republican candidates that absolutely do not represent their interests.


Ron Paul is the Teflon candidate.  He is a candidate that threatens the very foundations of the American corporate militaristic empire that is causing misery worldwide, and is the only person who can really do so.  Because any Democrat who does so, is so dependent on gun control and abortion rights lobbies that they must take Washington power positions on those issues, ensuring that middle Americans will vote against their own interests because of fear campaigns on these other issues.  Same thing with gay rights.  Ron Paul will not sanction or diminish people’s rights.  He believes people are endowed with rights, not awarded them by Washington.  He doesn’t believe that Washington has a role in people’s bedrooms.


Ron Paul is a man that can alter the future of humanity in a way that will enable a human renessance.  When you hear him speak on corporate media, the corporate shills sound shrill and abrasive.  Ron Paul sounds calm and clear.  He extols freedom, peace and international cooperation.

He has broken all fundraising records, $18 million this quarter.  Only HE hasn’t raised it.  Individuals have raised it for him.  Ordinary citizens, many who’ve never voted before.  A revolution is occurring.


As a lifelong liberal Democrat who has worked professionally and as a full time volunteer, as I told the Iowa Democratic Party in a rancourous phone conversation a few days ago . . . I’m sick of your politics.  I’m sick of your charades.  I’m officially leaving the Party and joining the Ron Paul revolution.


Of course I’ll vote for Democratic Congresspeople and Senators, because . . . well because we know most Republican candidates are completely devoid of soul.  At least with a Democrat you could be surprised.  However, for Presidential candidates, Ron Paul is the ONLY choice.


My old friends may be shocked and cringe at my decision.  But, I think in their hearts they too know the Democratic Party establishment has used them, at least in Presidential politics.


I hope they will see the light, while Ron Paul can still win.  A mass defection from the Dems to Ron Paul is a powerful message we can all send.

If the GOP and powers that be somehow stop Ron Paul from getting the nomination, I pray he’ll hook up with a real Democrat like Gravel or Kucinich, and run as a third party candidate.


Americans are sick and tired of voting for the lesser of two evils, as Michael Moore once said.  I know I am.  How about you? 


Join the Revolution!!
