Confessions of a Defecting Democrat -- Why Ron Paul is the Perfect Candidate, and
How the Left Media Will be USED to Attack Him 


On the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, I donated to my first Republican candidate.  I officially joined the Ron Paul revolution!


Ron Paul is threatening the American military empire in ways no Democrat of our time has ever been able to do.  I don’t diminish Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel’s efforts, they have been courageous.  However, they are limited by their party.


Of course the Democratic machine got rid of Gravel (the man who ended the draft during Vietnam) early, and with the Iowa Democratic Gestapo (I mean Party), we’ve now seen them do the same with Kucinich excluding him from the debates.  The party lamely blamed it on the Des Moines Register, but I think we all know that the Dem Party could have insisted, if they wanted to have all their candidates present.


I doubt I could vote for another Republican, unless Ron Paul is the candidate, because I think we all know the GOP is completely corrupted, except for the shining knight that is Ron Paul.


However, my disillusionment with the Democrats began long ago.  Many years ago former California governor, Jerry Brown, decided to run for the State Chair of the California Democratic Party.  I was hired on his campaign as a professional staff member.  We won.  He got the Chairmanship.


Years later, I became a full time volunteer for Jerry Brown’s bid for the Democratic nomination for President.  I came back to politics as a volunteer because Brown had the revolutionary idea of not accepting a donation over $100. 


He traveled on a budget and stayed in ordinary people’s homes.  He said when he was state chair of the California Democratic Party, he’d raised more money than any chair in history.  But, no matter how much he raised, they always needed more.  He said you lose touch with ordinary people, when you can only take time to sit down with those who can write a multi-thousand dollar check.


Brown was made fun of by corporate media.  Sound familiar?  Ala Kucinich, Gravel, and Ron Paul?  THEN, Brown won the primary in Colorado, defeating candidate Bill Clinton.  It shook the foundations of the power structure that runs this country.  The acted fast, and with a sledge hammer.


Immediately Ted Koppel of Nightline, a huge influence in the nation before cable news dominated . . . had on several “masked men” who would not reveal their identity.  They “claimed” to be former Governor Brown’s body guards when he was governor.  They “claimed” he’d held wild pot parties at his Laurel Canyon home back then.


When I saw shocked friends, cooks, housekeepers, etc. of the former Governor going on television to vehemently deny that such “wild parties” had ever occurred, I knew they were telling the truth.  Anyone who knew Brown or worked with or for him, knew that the allegations were lies.  When I worked for him, I had to walk away from his house to smoke a cigarette, a tobacco cigarette, let alone anything else.  He’d trained to be a Jesuit priest before entering politics and was the straightest arrow I ever met.  Someone wanted Bill Clinton to get the nomination, because they wanted big money to continue its reign in America.


When I went to the Orange County Democratic Party headquarters to get precinct maps for our Brown for President campaign, I was denied them by smug party officials.  I was ordered out when I began yelling the fact that the Clinton campaign was being given preferential treatment by the party hacks.


So, the Democratic Party sold out long ago.  If the chosen ones, Obama or Hillary, and maybe Edwards gets elected, they will slightly change spending priorities but leave the American military empire fully intact.  Corporate globalist money will remain completely in charge.


However, if Ron Paul gets elected, all US troops from worldwide will be ordered home.  The oppression of developing country workers by corrupt governments backed up by the CIA and US military will die a timely death.  Workers will organize, and slave labor markets, which drive down the US worker’s standard of living will be no more. 


Since over 50% of US federal discretionary spending goes to military, President Ron Paul’s actions will result in a deluge of savings that will dramatically improve the standard of living in America.  Democrats would NEVER make such a change, at least not the ones the Party doesn’t silence with their many dirty tricks.


However, the “liberal” or “left” media will fight tooth and nail to damage Ron Paul in any way they can.  They’ve already began smear campaigns.  They’ve tried to character assassinate him with pathetic guilt by association campaigns, such as “white supremacists support Ron Paul,” or “Ron Paul will outlaw abortion.”
