Game Over: Scans of Over 50 Ron Paul Newsletters

For a certain segment of the Ron Paul fanbase, no evidence of his disseminating hateful, paranoid material will ever be enough. Citing James Kirchick's piece in The New Republic wasn't sufficient, because Kirchick could have just been "making everything up." Then, when I and others posted copies of "The Ron Paul Political Report Special Issue on Race Terrorism," that too wasn't convincing.

"Proof that he said/endorsed racist things? Hardly. Doing it repeatedly in one document isn't enough to prove that he did it. Now, if there were many documents..."

Well, now there are many documents. Over fifty. Right here.

As I said in my rundown on the Paul platform over at Vice, reasonable fans of Dr. Paul now must accept that
there's no way Paul could have been ignorant of the content [of] 8-12 page newsletters published under his name for over ten years. Paul supporters face three losing propositions:

• He lacks the competency to control content published under his own name for over a decade, and is thus unfit to lead a country.
• He doesn't believe these things but considers them a useful political tool to motivate racist whites, which makes him fit to be a GOP candidate, but too obvious about it to win.
• He's actually a racist, which makes him unfit to be a human being.
Further, you can't dismiss this in the name of higher political or socioeconomic aspirations. Since Paul has no chance of winning — seriously, no chance at all — his only value is as a voice, a conduit for principles. And if your only hope is to change the discourse by amplifying ideas, you can do that via many voices and avenues. As I said in my Vice follow-up, acknowledging some of Paul's good ideas,
when you opt to support anti-imperialist and civil liberties ideals by supporting Paul the Candidate, you end up supporting everything else about him. That includes those newsletters and the unambiguous message to those who enjoy them: You can write these things and succeed; this works. The other good ideas to which he's signatory can't erase the fact that he put his name to those words printed above. The moral weight of those newsletters drags down even the most high-minded aspirations he has about civil liberties, and everything crashes down on all of us.
It's fine to have convictions about things he believes in. But when you voluntarily whitewash his record or choose to ignore it and champion him anyway, you are complicit in supporting the idea that racism and homophobia are morally inconsequential to the process of running for President of the United States. And, while many Paul supporters consider racism a social injury subordinate to extra-legal military conflict, there are just as many who disgustingly handwave at racism because it's an inconsequential burp on the way to more tax cuts, Free Markets, Free Money, Free Black Peop — stuff for me!

And still, for the faithful, this will not be enough.

Below, I've tried to give helpful general (bold) titles to each excerpt of the various Ron Paul newsletters available. These come courtesy of a zipfile of scans sent to me by reader Heresiarch, who, along with others, compiled it from various sources — although the lion's share, if not all, come from James Kirchick, who wrote the original, big Ron Paul story in The New Republic, in 2008. (You can see many of his highlights on the scans.) I have omitted the over 65 pages of scanned federal earmarks Ron Paul requested for his district, in a fit of States' Wants pique. I have also omitted the scans of Von Mises Institute brochures about a Secession Conference at which Paul spoke.

No attempt has been made to organize these via topic, since pages of each newsletter are apt to feature mini-articles on multiple topics, making organization futile. (My summaries don't indicate all that go on in the scans, so please click away.) Finally, below some of the scans, I've offered some comments in plain text. Those within quotation marks are direct quotes from the text appearing in the newsletter scans. Those without quotation marks are my own observations.

(Open each image in a new tab to embiggen.)

Ron Paul Newsletter—April, 1993: The New York Bombing


"Whether it was a setup by the Israeli Mossad, as a Jewish friend of mine suspects, or was truly a retaliation by the Islamic fundamentalists, matters little. The cities have become centers of violence, whether through the daily and routine terrorism of crime, political bomb terrorism, or the terrorism of mob behavior as in Los Angeles."


Ron Paul Newsletter—August, 1990: Those Lucky Minorities and the Straight-Seducing Gay Bush Junta


"And Stanford, Michigan, and many other universities have banned speech that offends privileged groups. Anti-white, anti-male, anti-heterosexual or anti-Christian remarks are perfectly OK, of course." You can imagine, then, what a relief it must be to minorities, homosexuals, women and non-Christians to find themselves the privileged people of America. The rest of this page and part of the second details a cabal of homosexuals in the Bush administration who like to lead "the young" astray.



Dr. Ron Paul's Freedom Report—April, 1978:


This is instructive because, if someone else was writing Ron Paul's newsletters for him, they've been doing it for 33 years, with a remarkable tonal consistency. Even in 1978, the patterns of paranoia about American government capture by international secret interests are apparent. To wit, "I can believe that a non-conspiratorial President, if we had one...."


"The Trilateral Commission is no longer known only by those who are knowledgeable about international conspiracies, but is routinely mentioned in the daily news.... Jimmy Carter's membership in the Trilateral Commission is hardly a coincidence."


"I believe, in reality, the [Panama] Canal is now "owned" by facist-oriented [sic], international banking and business interests and is merely managed by the Marxist-oriented Torrijos dictatorship, with the bills being paid by the American taxpayers...."


Ron Paul Investment Letter—May 1988: Say No to the New World Order


The first of many existentially terrifying revelations about a coming global disaster that Ron Paul will gladly share with you, for the good of all true Americans, assuming they will pay. This theme appears again and again: in the greatest fight you can imagine for the lifeblood of liberty and American history, there is no time to waste in making sure that you send Ron Paul money. That's how much Ron Paul loves America—for $1, if you buy 25 copies and $6.95 for a single copy.


Ron Paul Newsletter—December 1990: MLK


After beginning with an objection to the "statism" of the Smithsonian Institution including a civil rights exhibit about homosexuals (without objections to the "statism" of having, say, historic American flags on display), the piece includes a bit about Martin Luther King's plagiarism problems with his doctorate. That poor scholarship on Dr. King's part is actually true, but the newsbite here is merely a peg on which to hang more (and repeated) King-hate. For instance, on the following page:


"[King] was also a Comsymp, if not an actual party member, and the man who replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration. King, the FBI files show, was not only a world-class adulterer, he also seduced underage girls and boys.... And we are supposed to honor this 'Christian minister' and lying socialist satyr...?"


Ron Paul Newsletter—February, 1990: The Coming Race War and Shame of MLK Day




"Boy, it sure burns me to have a national holiday for that pro-communist philanderer, Martin Luther King. I voted against this outrage time and time again as a Congressman. What an infamy that Ronald Reagan approved it! We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day. Listen to a black radio talk show in any major city. The racial hatred makes a KKK rally look tame."


Ron Paul Newsletter—February, 1991: The X-Rated Martin Luther King


As if everything else about the communist pedophile Martin Luther King weren't bad enough, apparently he couldn't stop fucking Ralph Abernathy.


Ron Paul Newsletter—January, 1988: AIDS and Great Crabcakes, Two Things Made in Maryland


"Dr. Douglass believes that AIDS is a deliberately engineered hybrid of these two animal viruses cultured in human tissue, and he blames World Health Organization experimentation at Ft. Detrick, Maryland.... Could the government have experimented with it in the civilian population, as it did in the 1950s with LSD, and had things get out of control? I don't know, but these sure are interesting questions." See? He's just asking questions.


Ron Paul Newsletter—January, 1990: SODOMY EQUALS DEATH


"A well-known libertarian editor just back from New York told me: 'The ACT-UP slogan, on stickers plastered all over Manhattan, is "Silence = Death." But shouldn't it be "Sodomy = Death"?'"


Ron Paul Newsletter—January, 1991: MLK, World-Class Philanderer


"St. Martin was a world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours ('non-violence' didn't apply in all spheres, I guess)."


This second page soft-sells the idea that MLK wished he could be like Castro but was prevented because a violent revolution wouldn't work in the U.S. So, rather than this being an indication of his own good judgment about the best course of seeking equality, it's proof that he was basically a murdering revolutionary thwarted by indifference. It also describes the civil rights movement as "bad from the beginning," because overturning Jim Crow and then refusing to accept that glorious market happiness would elevate blacks to equal status in the United States represents a social injustice.


Ron Paul Newsletter—June, 1990: The Pink House?


"What an outrage that, for the first time in our nation's history, the organized forces of perversion were feted in the White House." Here, "organized forces of perversion" means "gay people hoping to be spared dehumanizing violence."


"President Bush invited the heads of homosexual lobbying groups to the White House for the ceremony. As Congressman Bill Dannemeyer (R-CA) noted, 'It's a tragic message that is being sent,' that normality and deviance are equal. I miss the closet. Homosexuals, not to speak of the rest of society, were far better off when social pressure forced them to hide their activities. They could also not be as promiscuous. Is it any coincidence that the AIDS epidemic developed after they came 'out of the closet' and started hyper-promiscuous sodomy? I don't believe so, medically or morally."


Ron Paul Newsletter—May, 1990: When Blacks Kill Whites


"When blacks kill whites, however, it's not defined as news."


Ron Paul Newsletter—November, 1990: David Duke




"To many voters, this seemed just like plain good sense. Duke carried baggage from his past, but the voters were willing to overlook that." Fun words, fun ideas: "baggage" that some voters "overlooked."


Ron Paul Newsletter—October, 1990: AIDS, Gays, Blacks and Rapetown


A sales pitch for None Dare Call It Conspiracy, one of the finest modern history books you can find at your local Army surplus store, next to the "$3 Bills (Clinton)" and the IMPEACH BILLARY stickers, as well as something about Obama Muslim Hussein NOT RACIST.


"A mob of black protestors, led by the 'Rev.' Al Sharpton, occupied and closed the Statue of Liberty recently, demanding that New York be renamed Martin Luther King City 'to reclaim it for our people.' Hmmm. I hate to agree with the Rev. Al, but maybe a name change is in order. Welfaria? Zooville? Rapetown? Dirtburg? Lazyopolis? But Al, the Statue of Liberty? Next time, hold that demonstration at a food stamp bureau or a crack house."


This page includes a bunch of frankly nutty ideas about how everyone should deal with people with AIDS, followed by, "No kissing, since AIDS can be transmitted by saliva."


This page offers a mixed vote of support for jury nullification (almost always invoked in these pages as a right for a jury to exonerate anyone who refuses to pay federal taxes), while also implying that a jury and city were influenced by black demonstrators for Marion Barry. "There were constant anti-white demonstrations outside the courthouse."


Ron Paul Political Report—March, 1990: Homophobes for Andy Rooney


"CBS forced him into an apologotic [sic] interview with The Advocate, a homosexual magazine filled with classified ads for pervert prostitutes. The reporter--who certainly had an axe to grind, and that's not easy with a limp wrist...." It goes on to claim that the reporter for The Advocate made things up about Rooney, as part of the devious homosexual agenda.


"The liberals promised us relief from guilt, points out Murray N. Rothbard, of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, and they did abolish sexual guilt (and gave use widespread sodomy, AIDS, promiscuity, illegitimacy, and abortion in the bargain). But they imposed a thousand new guilts over racism, sexism, speciesism, ageism, and homophobia (the dread belief that normal sexual conduct is superior to abnormal)."

There it is in a nut, kids. It was liberalism that foisted on human beings the idea that you should feel ashamed by unwarranted "superiority," malicious exclusion, self-satisfied exploitation, dehumanization, disregard and violence. The nemesis that liberalism visits on libertarianism — and, thus, libertarianism's proof of liberalism's great authoritarian imposition — is that the human race is not your basement rec room array of toys; you are not the sole arbiter of value, and you don't get to have all the coolest things because you are you and because others have failed in terms of that singularly pointless achievement.


Ron Paul Political Report—July 1992: Blacks, Riots, ACORN


"Perot cannot fix the welfare state any more than Gorbachev could fix Soviet socialism. To achieve even a semblance of success, Perot may resort to authoritarian means. Maintaining order may be the number one priority, especially as the race riots grow.... Just after a basketball game ended on June 14, blacks poured into the streets of Chicago in celebration. How to celebrate? How else? They broke the windows of stores to loot, even breaking through protective steel shutters with crowbars to steal everything in sight.... (Is this why Hollywood tells us White Men Can't Jump?)."


"Of all the stores that were looted, only one had its goods simply thrown on the sidewalk rather than stolen: a bookstore." Ahahaha, I get it. It's because black people don't read! "Jury verdicts, basketball games, and even music are enough to set off black rage, it seems."


"What does it say about a party when its candidate can't criticize those who advocate killing white people without upsetting its core voters? What does it say about blacks that they would find it upsetting to hear this criticized? My guess is that Jesse Jackson and friends talk like this in private."


"Another good example is a study just released by ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) called 'Take the Money and Run: The Siphoning of Deposits from Minority Neighborhoods.' It alleges that banks take deposits from blacks and then don't grant them loans. They say that for every dollar on deposit, only 4 cents goes [sic] back to blacks. Ever vigilant against economic differences that express themselves in racial terms, the American elite are busy instituting race quotas in lending. ACORN called for a summit meeting with bankers to 'work out the differences'--meaning that banks fork over the cash.... They all agreed to fork over more money--so long as the regulators don't notice that they are not paid back."


This last page emphasizes the sinister nature of equal lending by describing Jack Kemp's support for the idea of having a black person see if he can get a loan, then report back. It's just like the Thought Police, but with numbers and other objective measures employed against thoughts. Tremble, tremble, tremble, Middle America.


Ron Paul Political Report—November 1992: Bobby Fischer, Jew Victim


"It turns out that the brilliant Fischer, who has all the makings of an American hero, is very politically incorrect on Jewish questions, for which he will never be forgiven, even though he is a Jew. Thus we are not supposed to herald him as the world's greatest chess player."

Note two things here. One, even at the time, nobody disputed that Fischer was one of the greatest in chess history; nor does anyone dispute that today. Two, even at the time, Fischer disavowed his own Jewish ancestry, openly admired Hitler, blamed the Jews for ruining his reputation and chess ranking in the world and considered the State of Israel to be a spider manipulating the press and intelligentsia of the English-speaking world. To consider Fischer anything other than a raving loon and, further, to consider him persecuted only opens very reasonable lines of inquiry as to why anybody would sympathize with him at all, unless his lunacy was coeval with one's own.


Ron Paul Political Report—November, 1989: Bohemian Grove


"The annual Grove encampment began with the pagan 'Cremation of Care' ceremony, with Druid priests dressed in tight, multicolored robes. Even stranger, says Weiss, 'vaguely homosexual undertones suffused this spectacle, as they do much of the ritualized life in the Grove.' Indeed, there's sex at the Grove: female prostitutes outside the camp (and inside, in past years, we're told) and--says Weiss--a young man on his own gets 'frequent invitations from gay Bohemians.'" Once again, the real horror of international conspiracy and political capture is vivified not by policy decisions but because dudes might kiss each other or have sex after marriage or engage in some mindless, meaningless ritual that is non-Christian.


"In his speech to fellow Bohemians, Reagan advocated the old Trilateralist agenda item of four-year terms for Congressmen... and more government regulation of the media, to keep articles like Weiss' out of print.... When a Time reporter and photographer tried to do the same sort of story in 1982, it was spiked by Time's Trilateral publisher." In classic conspiracist narrative, any dislike of the media is explicit dislike of conspiracists' contribution to media, and their failures to appear in mass media indicate a systemic muzzling, rather than a — to take a free-market example — bottom-line-minded publisher passing on something that nobody with a brain, checkbook or an absence of heavy-metal poisoning will read or care about.


This last page could have been a good point about the USS Liberty and American newspapers' paralytic fear of offending the State of Israel with accurate reportage of Israeli military overreaction, but the end of the page sabotages that with even more DREAD HOMO CONSPIRACY. As is the case with everything else Ron Paul, a decent idea is ineluctably subsumed by totally crazy nonsense.

For instance: "Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA) said that if he were drummed out of the House, he would take many others with him, including five Republicans he says are closet homosexuals. This threat apparently led the House ethics committee to try to call off further inquiries into the sex lives of Congressmen, and in early October, the Washington Post said that there would be no more talk of sex in Congress. By the end of the month, however, the Washington Times was reporting that 'senior Democratic officials' say the Congressional gym has become a hotbed of homosexual activity, presumably by Republicans."


Ron Paul Political Report—November, 1992: Buy My Book! Buy My Book! Buy My Book on Abortion! Abortion and Property Rights Are Essentially the Same. They're a Matter of Privacy, Unlike Abortion, Which is Not Privacy but Property. We Cannot Legislate Property at the Federal Level, However... (Votes for Every Federal Abortion Ban Available) Property and the Person Theoretically If Von Mises and Things, Cogito, Then...


"Make no mistake: if our culture is not willing to recognize the value of life, it can never be persuaded to recognize the derivative obligations to respect private property, limited government, sound money, etc. That's why the opinions of the medical elite are a threat to our entire civilization. (Want a copy of my latest book on abortion? It's available for $10 from our office.)"


Ron Paul Political Report—October, 1992: Carjacking: A Hip-Hop Thing to Do


"If you live in a major city, you've probably already heard about the newest threat to your life and limb, and your family: carjacking. It is the hip-hop thing to do among the urban youth who play unsuspecting whites like pianos. The youth simply walk up to a car they like, pull a gun, tell the family to get out, steal their jewelry and wallets, and take the car to wreck. Such actions have ballooned in the recent months. In the old days, average people could avoid such youth by staying out of bad neighborhoods. Empowered by media, police, and political complicity, however, the youth now roam everywhere looking for cars to steal and people to rob. What can you do? More and more Americans are carrying a gun in the car. An ex-cop I know advises that if you have to use a gun on a youth, you should leave the scene immediately, disposing of the wiped off gun as soon as possible. Such a gun cannot, of course, be registered to you, but one bought privately (through the classifieds, for example)."

Now try reading that quote again, but replace the word "youth" with "nigger." Let's not pretend it's meant to be anything else.


Ron Paul Survival Report—January 1993: A Youth Culture of Ghetto Values


"Nearly every other group but whites are allowed a certain degree of cultural autonomy. Blacks have black schools, clubs, and neighborhoods. The same is true of Hispanics. It is human nature that like attracts likes. But whites are not allowed to express this same human impulse. Except in a de facto sense, there can be no white schools, white clubs, or white neighbor hoods [sic]. The political system demands white integration, while allowing black segregation. The youth culture is already driven by ghetto music and ghetto values.... And the sexual ethics of our youth are also degenerating to the level of the ghetto."


Ron Paul Survival Report—January, 1994: Gay People Enjoy Getting AIDS


"They enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick. Put it all together, and you've got another wave of AIDS infections, that you, dear taxpayer, will be asked to pay for."


Ron Paul Survival Report—January, 1995: Ten Militia Commandments


"You can't kill a Hydra by cutting off it's head." "Keep the group size down." "Keep quiet and you're harder to find."


"Don't keep all your eggs in one basket. If you have more than one rifle, store it in a hideaway spot." "Hide your best eggs from prying eyes. Destroy any documents or discs that become unnecessary." "Bojangles Robinson ain't the only one who can tap. Avoid the phone as much as possible." "Remember you're not alone."


Ron Paul Survival Report—July, 1994: America Has Less Crime Than Europe When You Take out All the Black People


The analysis from "Criminologist Jared Taylor" comes from a man who believes in white supremacy and eugenics laws and is featured as an interviewee on websites like this.


Ron Paul Survival Report—March, 1993: Clinton's Illegitimate Children


"During the presidential campaign, black activist Robert 'Say' McIntosh of Arkansas distributed a list of Clinton's illegitimate children, black and white: 'woods colts' in the backwoods slang.... Why? 'Bill Clinton told me he would get my son out of prison,' McIntosh said in an interview, according to a front page story in the Washington Times."

You, too, should be stunned to see a Ron Paul newsletter alleging that Bill Clinton fucks black people, according to a black person connected to a black person in jail, printed in the ridiculously far-right Moonie Times. The only thing this story lacks is the idea that Clinton himself is secretly black. Not that insinuating that would have any resonance with people who like Ron Paul solely for freedom's sake and who cannot be racist because "racism is a form of collectivism." No, of course not.



This first page hysterically predicts the worst tax rises in history, ignoring actual history. That's par for the course. The second page keeps elaborating on fantasies that wouldn't even be nightmarish to any American in 1955. But, just for good measure, it includes, "You Can't Fire a Freak," in which being a transsexual is not only deviant but also the first sign of runaway lawsuits!


Ron Paul Survival Report—November, 1994: Militia Movements, A Magnificent Sign!


"This radical new movement is a magnificent sign of the times, one of many indications that the central state faces massive resistance from average people and is losing its grip on political power.... It's the domination of the country by Washington that is driving the militia and other heroic movements around the country."


"If you belong to one of these groups, be careful not to let down your guard too easily if at all.... Big government is forever, says the Beltway elite. But don't believe it. If people form their own communities of internal protection, the central state becomes an even more obvious parasite. It is an encouraging sign that the end of government as we know it may be near."


Ron Paul Survival Report—September, 1994: Those Who Don't Commit Sodomy, Who Don't Get a Blood Transfusion and Who Don't Swap Needles Are Virtually Assured of Not Getting AIDS Unless They Are Deliberately Infected by a Malicious Gay


The above title is the money quote from this piece. Coming in second: "On sharing needles: this is one of the customs among dopers. They use the same needle out of addict solidarity. Sterile syringes would be just as available on the black market as illegal drugs if the demand were there. Addicts want to share needles. Too bad they have to die so expensively at taxpayers' expense."


Ron Paul Political Report—December, 1989: Needlin, Jesse Jackson, Homos, Reverse Racism and Washington FOR BLACKS ONLY


Paul writes, "My old colleague, Congressman Bill Dannemeyer (R-CA), speaks out despite the organized power of the gay lobby.... Here are some excerpts from one of his recent speeches:
"AIDS was 'originally known as GRIDS--gay related immune deficiency syndrome.' For political reasons, it was changed to AIDS. "A whole political movement has been created and sustained on a single notion: homosexual sodomy."

"The average homosexual has 1,000 or more partners in a lifetime, and the average homosexual has only one sexual enounter per partner and never sees the person again after that encounter."
It goes on, and it's ridiculous, and no assertion made in it passes a laugh test or any clinical rigorousness, which you'd think would matter to someone billing himself as "Dr." Paul.



"To be white in Washington, however, is to experience a culture that is anti-white and proud of it.... Professors teach that whites are committing genocide against blacks and invented crack and AIDS as part of the plan."

Agreed. That's just nutty. Everyone knows that AIDS was invented by the WHO, at an Army base in Maryland, as part of a massive federal government control plan. Look at all these blacks: they even try to steal conspiracies against whites.



"Today only a race-obsessed society will do, with State power enforcing official discrimination in favor of blacks. Of course, there are racist whites. But outside of a miniscule band of KKK members, there are few whose racism is the defining fact of their lives. Too many D.C. blacks, on the other hand, are charter members in what we might call the BBB. Washington--with its racist government, racist radio, racist ministers, racist universities, and racist attitudes--is the black New Jerusalem, so no white is supposed to question it. Or so says William Raspberry. Excuse me for not buying it."


A Personal Letter from Ron Paul About How You Can Give Him More Money


We return to the nut of all this, Ron Paul, who allegedly made millions off these newsletters, bilking the undereducated, paranoid and racist for more "unreal" paper dollars, has one last appeal:
Dear Supporter,

As a special thank you, if you subscribe before the Presidential Convention on September 5, you may have my newsletter for an unprecedented 50% off ($49.50)!

- Ron
And we arrive at the beginning.

The is the nugget and the nugatory fact of the Ron Paul experience: everything inspirational and aspirational about the Ron Paul candidacy is as nakedly fungible as every word above. When he was not in office, for $49.95, you could buy his book about how to be scared shitless about government and invest in the same gold mines he already had shares in. Now that he's in government and angling for a higher position, you are even more compelled to stave off categorical economic collapse by investing even more than $49.95 in his campaign. And if his campaign goes nowhere, try googling something other than "RON PAUL" and whether candidates can pocket donations.

Still, on any map of moral behavior, this is a man who merits no one's esteem. To return to a comment above, he either believes these paranoiac, divisive, racial and sexually malicious things and wrote them himself, or he recognized the cynical political value in trading in them, or he was so stupid that not a word above was written by him, yet it carried his name anyway.

There is no win here. There is no good here. Any bargain you strike where the above doesn't matter is a bargain you strike by saying, "I accept the above. I accept it and consider it immaterial to my wants going forward." There are precious few and very slender platforms on which that kind of thin-sliced appreciation can stand without wobbling and falling into a ditch. For almost everybody, that bargain trades away your own goodness. That bargain shelves your credibility as a human being. It means you lose.

For Ron Paul fans looking to respond to the above, please read this response to common Ron Paul defenses. Youtubes of/about Ron Paul saying he cannot be/is not racist have been posted a dozen times already. They will be ignored with the same zesty spirit with which you've ignored the above and all pertinent links.

  4. THANK YOU for posting these newsletters !

    I spent quite a while yesterday trying to find them anywhere online after discovering how many people posting comments at HuffingtonPost, TPMuckraker, etc. flatly refused to believe the story.

    Apparently, reading excerpts from the newsletters wasn't enough for them, but then racism is a form of blindness.

    Hope you won't mind if I post links to this article. In this case, seeing is not just believing ... it also makes it clear that Paul still hasn't told the truth about his racism.

    In fact, it'd be VERY revealing to see the various statements/explanations he's offered over the years, all laid out in chronological order.

    (I'm not suggesting you assemble that ... just noting that it'd make for some interesting reading.)

    Thanks again for keeping this story alive, and

    Happy holidays.

    1. I'd much rather have Ron Paul, who may have not provided 100% oversight on an unimportant newsletter; than Mitt Romney, the animal abuser and big government puppet, than Rick Santorum, the man who took a dead fetus home with him, or than Obama, who has, in one term, put America so far into debt it is unlikely we will ever get out unless there is another great depression.

      You people like to focus so much on a ridiculous newsletter from 20+ years ago; how about you point your efforts to the REAL PROBLEMS in today's world; a monetary policy that is bankrupting the middle class, and a foreign policy that is getting our citizens KILLED; and inspiring hatred of America around the GLOBE.

      WAKE THE FUCK UP PEOPLE: THERE IS SHIT THAT ACTUALLY MATTERS GOING ON.

  7. "No excuses" - What if I don't want a president, period. Besides the obvious issues with Paul.

  8. Ridiculous - WOW! Letters not written by the guy you are bashing. Again, how does this make him a racist? Game Over - for you maybe? But for Ron Paul, not by a long shot. Tired old trick of progressivism, when you can't win based on principals and your popularity starts to dwindle, call your opponent a racist. How original. The establishment will stop at nothing to continue their progressive agenda. Go back to sleep and when you wake, hopefully it will all be over. America will get the government she deserves. For our sake, I hope LIBERTY prevail. If it doesn't, prepare for government tyranny because it will certainly be on its way.

  10. You are really bad at reading.

    The final link in this piece addresses the whole "not written by him" charge, with links to Reason.com's breakdown of Paul's ownership/defense/non-denial denials and the complete absence of responsibility for them. (Tell me, how do you think Libertopia is going to work when its noblest practitioner and advocate is allergic to personal responsibility on an issue so fundamental as his own name and identity-product?) Moreover, the introduction to this piece concedes that it's possible he didn't write these; nonetheless, as an advocate of personal responsibility and as a person who made millions off these very newsletters, Paul bears responsibility for their contents and he bears blame for giving them his imprimatur, his RON PAUL GOLDEN SEAL OF APPROVAL. You can't get around that, and you haven't. You've instead plugged your ears and said, "lalalalalalala NOT HIS NOT HIS PROGRESSIVE ATTACK, TRICKS, SWINDLE" or whatever, none of which is substantive, persuasive or at all even remotely aware of/responsive to the point.

    Your smear has been noted, though.

If you want to know more about the provenance of these newsletters, they were preserved by two excellent libraries that established very broad historical collection policies, the University of Kansas and the Wisconsin Historical Society. Doug Moe, a Madison-based reporter, wrote an excellent article about the sources James Kirchick relied on in his New Republic piece: http://www.tnr.com/article/politics/angry-white-man that you can read here: http://www.allbusiness.com/government/elections-politics-politics-political-parties/14726817-1.html. We can largely thank Jim Danky, a longtime librarian and legendary collection developer, for preserving the newsletters, which are still housed at the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison.

  12. Thanks very much, Steel.

    I knew of the Wisconsin provenance, but I didn't know that someone had written an article about it, and I didn't know which individuals to credit. I appreciate your letting me know. They definitely deserve it.

  13. If it seems too good to be true, then it's probably untrue. we learned this from Obama. looks like Ron Paul's glossy veneer will be coming down soon as well, just like Perry, Cain, and Gingrich.

    THANK YOU for posting these newsletters !

    ... it'd be VERY revealing to see the various statements/explanations he's offered over the years, all laid out in chronological order.


    No problem. I actually linked a breakdown of his defense and non-denials in the "Ron Paul Political Report: Special Issue on Race Terrorism" piece. The breakdown comes courtesy of Matt Welch at Reason, which is a libertarian website. Ta-Nehisi Coates also did a very good commentary/chronology of Paul's replies to the newsletter, based on Welch's article.

  15. Your typical Gomorrite biases shine through in this piece. You refuse to acknowledge the possibility that these deliberately inflammatory newsletters have been planted in our memories and historical archives by malicious Black Zionist time travelers to slander and defame the one man who dares disrupt their monolithic stranglehold on the hearts and minds of the future. James Cameron, noted libertarian patriot, wrote and directed Terminator 2: Judgement Day as a modern day Revelation of God to John the Apostle, predicting the terror to come at the hand of the Gomorrite in the coming years (Terminator robot = allegory for Black Zionist media empire, even you can follow that one). Until the media emperors got to Cameron (Avatar), he was perhaps the loudest voice of prophecy in the media (trumpeting common man and the values of American Capatilism; see Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy). As Sherlock Holmes (great American Patriot, despite what that vapid man-whore Benedict Cumberbatch wants you to believe) said, once you eliminate the impossible, the improbable becomes logically correct. Cogito ergo sum, Gomorrite overlords.

  16. It's true that this will do nothing to dislodge his believers, perhaps because true belief in Ron Paul is preference for the free market and property rights over morality. Always has been. (It's kinda creepy that his son is named Rand.)
    True freedom allows for racism, greed, and all manner of despicability.

    Good looking out. I'm fascinated by Paul as a candidate, but I wish his followers really knew what they were getting into with this guy (and the far right in general).

  17. "Meh... at least Paul isn't a warmonger."

    Depends on what kind of war you are talking about. He's against foreign wars, but he is decidedly in favor of class war (the bad kind: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Ron_Paul#Economy) and as these newsletters suggest, his position on race war is up for debate.

  19. when you opt to support anti-imperialist and civil liberties ideals by supporting Paul the Candidate, you end up supporting everything else about him.

    This puts you back to zero. The same is true of voting for Obama or any candidate. You support Obama because he defends the welfare state, environmental protection, and gay and women's rights, and you end up supporting permanent war, the national security state, and domination by finance. And on Obama's "good" issues he's often very weak.

    Paul's zero chance is bigger than any of the other zero chances. It's more like Perot's zero chance. Perot shook things up a bit, though not in a good way (he was a big deficit hawk).

    My opinion is that this is all moot anyway. I don't think that Pres. Paul could stay in office if he totally changed military policy. One member of Obama's transition team said that that was why none of the Bush team were prosecuted.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Agreed. A decent respect for human rights and the Geneva Convention would have led to someone clapping most of the Bush Administration (and Kissinger) in irons and shipping them out to the International Criminal Court, dusting off the hands and signing an immediate suspension of all Guantanamo activity. The failure to do, at the very least, the last of these is a moral, legal, diplomatic and strategic (re: robbing terrorists of a recruiting issue) failure. It was very clearly a political decision to fail to do this, and Obama should be ashamed of himself.

    The same is true of voting for Obama or any candidate. You support Obama because he defends the welfare state, environmental protection, and gay and women's rights, and you end up supporting permanent war, the national security state, and domination by finance.

  21. It's not a surprise that libertarians can't recognize Paul's racism, they're not rational to begin with. The actual "philosophy" of libertarianism is nothing but a sophomoric fantasy divorced from reality and any understanding of human behavior. The idea that you can get the benefits of living in a society with none of the compromises or obligations is, to be very very kind, juvenile. Thinking that, absent government regulation, the free market and business will behave in responsible, humane ways is insane in anyone over the age of 12. It's an ideology that is completely invalidated by history. If they're capable of deluding themselves into thinking Ron Paul's political and economic views are reasonable, then they're not going to be persuaded by 50 newsletters.

    ReplyDelete
  22. In politics it is uselles to compare a candidate with an "ideal" one. What are the alternatives to Paul? None. Furthermore, the power of the President to change things radically is nill. For example, would he be able to dismantle all the military bases in Europe? No a chance. Will he be able to close Departments like Education, Energy, Commerce or the EPH? Zilch chances there. In other words, no matter who is elected in 2012, the Leviathan will remain. In conclusion, Paul, as racist as it may be, it is the only one who can "stop" the Leviathan from growing and hopefully (wishful thinking) to reduce it, a little bit.

  23. Ron Paul is racist and that makes him an immoral person. OK. But, what about Obama, who lies thru this teeth. Gringich and his 1.7 million from Freddy Mac. Romney and his flip/flops are a minute a day. Cain? Bachman may be moral and honest but is pea-brain. Conclusion: Stay away from the voting booths and hope the next crisis will be large enough for the Leviathan to recede.

  25. You already know that Ron Paul had taken responsibility for these newsletters back in 2008 for not watching over them? He disavowed them and you will never ever be able to find one audio or video clip of him saying anything racist.

    A man who wants to end the drug war and all the murder the US government is doing is really a racist? A libertarian is a racist? The whole point of libertarianism is to see people as individuals and not as groups.

    Why not post more about how the constant murder the US commits around the world, in its own country needs to be stopped? About how we have the largest prison population in the world and one of the most racist. Because then that would expose how much time you're really wasting everyday with this blog. You're no champion for human rights- you don't care about minorities, what have you done for them? Have you tried your best to put a stop to the racist policies we have in place right now?

    Wait a second! HOW DO YOU KNOW? The n-word is not there, so why are you insinuating "youth" means the N-word? That is totally dishonest, Mr. blogger. Besides this, your editorializing does not become facts just beecause you posted them. The fact is that there WAS a huge tax increase exactly when the newsletters said there would. Your ignorance of economics is not to be excused especially when defaming a person, Mr. blogger.

    The rest of the texts read like the typical run-of-the-mill conservative blogs. Nowhere does it say that Israel is the perpetrator of the WTC bombings (the author says he does not know.) The complaint about white Americans having to integrate while blacks and others can segregate is a valid point (and I'm Latino, if you ask.)

    But thank you for publishing these copies, because it actually gives better context to the whole issue, by making it clear most of the content was mundane conservative stuff

    You can compare Ron Paul to every other major candidate in the race and find zero other candidates who have published racist tracts under their own name for over a decade. Ron Paul is a moral failure of a human being compared even to the un-ideal.

    Furthermore, the power of the President to change things radically is nill. For example, would he be able to dismantle all the military bases in Europe? No a chance.

    You realize that your argument here is that it's almost immaterial who becomes president, yet you're going to support someone who spent over ten years publishing racist, homophobic, paranoid and repulsive tracts anyway? If it barely even matters who becomes president, you could pick almost any other candidate and support someone with less hideous baggage.

  37. Wow, devastating post.

    Of course the shameful legacy of Ron Paul's newsletters are immaterial because of those damning opinions I don't have, advocating policies I don't support from a president I don't respect.

    You're right: everything above doesn't matter, because you've stumbled on a completely fabricated and fatuous straw man about my motives, beliefs and commitments.

    I can do that too. Watch this: "Interesting reply, but I don't think I need to take moral lessons from a pedophile. Come back and chide me as soon as you stop fucking children."

    See? Amazing.

    So you just keep manufacturing stupid crap, and maybe no one will notice that you're doing so in defense of someone who (again):

    1. Either wrote incredibly racist and homophobic things over hundreds of newsletters and ten years.

    2. Tolerated or saw political or moneymaking utility in publishing—under his own brand and his own name—incredibly racist and homophobic things over hundreds of newsletters and ten years.

    3. Somehow was totally unaware of it over hundreds of newsletters and ten years, proving he doesn't have the leadership and PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITIES facilities to successfully lead his finger on a mission to rescue boogers from his nose, much less become President of the United States.

  39. I have taken the time to read all of these and the comments on this blog and this is my opinion, and in the interests of full disclosure I will say initially that I was a Paul supporter before reading this and I remain a supporter after, This is Ron's one weak point. In the past Ron either allowed these to be published in his name or wrote them himself; however, all that these point to is the fact that Ron is a product of 1930's, 40's and 50's America where racism was still the norm. His policies while as a congressman still point to him putting individual liberties ahead of treating people as members of different cultural groups and at worst he is a reformed bigot who has moved on from his beliefs and at best he was a careless publisher who had some sympathies for these pieces due to the time he was brought up in. I will continue to support him because Keynesian economic policies are putting human civilization on the track to a new Dark ages and I would rather put a closet bigot who will save the economy and my civil liberties in office over warmongers and socialists

  42. "..Paul supporters face three losing propositions:

    • He lacks the competency to control content published under his own name for over a decade, and is thus unfit to lead a country.
    • He doesn't believe these things but considers them a useful political tool to motivate racist whites, which makes him fit to be a GOP candidate, but too obvious about it to win.
    • He's actually a racist, which makes him unfit to be a human being."

    Oh, pish. And tush. This is like arguing religion - you can't match up logic against Faith. It's like the whole Iran-Contra thing: either Reagan had no idea of what was going on in the White House, in which case he was unfit to be President, or he was bald-faced lying to Congress, in which case he was unfit to be President. Either way, it turns out his supporters didn't care, and of course the press didn't care, so the American people as a whole didn't care. Do you really think Paul's people care about this? If anything they would regard it as a Good Thing. Most of the press don't care, since it doesn't involve Sexy Sex-Sex-Sexiness, and pretty much nobody else does since (a) see the first part of the sentence, and (b) "Ron who?".

  44. I must admit, I read through 90% of these samples and am entirely unconvinced that there's anything damning here. Paul believes that homosexuality is immoral and that there have been a lot of policies that discriminate against whites as a part of the overcompensation of the civil rights movement.

    Neither of these things qualify Paul as a racist or mass murderer of homosexuals. It's really absurd that this stuff is being twisted. I've seen terrible reporting and absolute dishonesty from the mainstream media, but this might top that.

    Just goes to show that, regardless of your political viewpoint, people will always try to slander someone's character first before trying to take on the issues. It's unfortunate that political discourse has sunk this low in a country that used to feature the Anti-Federalists vs. the Federalists.

  46. there have been a lot of policies that discriminate against whites as a part of the overcompensation of the civil rights movement.

    Right!

    For instance: Martin Luther King Day clearly discriminates against whites because only fleet-footed blacks are allowed to take the day off, while the rest of America has to go to work. That's why he calls it "Hate Whitey Day," silly. It's not because he's racist.

    Also, when he says black talk radio is more racist than a KKK rally, that's because there was a federal civil rights program that established all those black talk radio stations out there, and they took the stations away from God-fearing white Americans.

    It's all very clear, once you drink a gallon of antifreeze and adjust the antennae on your tinfoil hat. And if you can't see that, well, then you're the real racist, aren't you?

  48. Dear Mr. Mobutu:

    I will accept, argumentum, your tripartite conclusion as to Mr. Paul's unfitness for public office. Unfortunately,that does not even begin to address the issue of how one votes for the least of all evils here.

    It may be, as you say, that many of the other Republican candidates are less racist. But homophobic? Really? But let's ignore the other exhibits in the freak show of the Republican primary, and focus: Paul versus Obama. Which one would get more black people, more brown people, and more gay people KILLED in Forever War? Which one will enslave more of their grandchildren in endless debt?

    You think that someone like Paul who talks racist smack is worse than Obama, under whose administration the policies of our government have butchered over 40,000 Mexicans in the last four years alone with their idiot drug war? Racism that demeans people in print makes it onto your radar screen, when all of the other candidates are committed to corporatist, foreign military hegemony, a racism that slaughters people wholesale?

    Full disclosure: I voted for Paul for President in '88 and '08. but I was not supporting him this year. We had a dream candidate -- Gary Johnson -- as good as Paul on foreign-policy and economic issues, without the dreadful baggage you cite. Pro-evolution, pro-science... you would think he must've pissed someone off. So google "Gary Johnson" and "Democrat criticism" or "dirt," and what do you get? Bupkus is what you get. So of course Faux Snooze and CNN won't even let us hear about the guy. As a result, Paul, racist baggage and all, remains as the least of all evils.

  53. The president isn't God, Brujo Feo. It turns out that it's much harder to get things done than a president might wish. I'm absolutely positive Obama would be out of Afghanistan if he could; unfortunately, logistics make it extremely difficult to do. I'm also sure he would draw down the war on drugs and illegal immigration if he could, because he doesn't seem to think that it's an awful plague on our society (or that fighting, rather than regulating, it is successful).
    Assume that Paul could do what you say if you so desire. I assure you he could not. As soon as he tried, he'd face tremendous amounts of political pressure and stonewalling, and would get less shit done than Obama has.

  54. Yeah, Ron Paul might be the least of the evils. Because, you know, racism in America was never really a big problem, so an overt racist who is actually lying about it all, elected to executive officeis an acceptable risk. That's a good point. No really, its awesomely brilliant.

    Just because Ron Paul doesn't like homosexuality doesn't mean he actually has contempt for gay people. I mean, it isn't as though he hammer murders them. Just because he goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and dribbles about Bohemian Grove and the Mossad doesn't betray any underlying mental instability. No no, his mental life is neatly compartmentalised and we can trust that under the strain of executive office, he won't become a raging idiot fruitcake and make difficult decisions on the basis of paranoid fantasies! Why not? Its a safe bet.

  63. So, how many minorities has Ron Paul killed in comparison to Obama, Bush, etc?

    Let me rephrase for the simple-minded ilk- how many minorities has Dr. Paul voted to send to their deaths? Not by a picture with a president but by his *actual* votes?

    So, the one who has voted for the least amount of minority deaths, is actually the most racist?

    That's not even touching the difference in actual racism and political incorrectness, which the author of this article ignorantly portrays as racism.

    I'm sorry, but acknowledging that various peoples behave differently or calling Minority Action groups to account for themselves is not racism.

  65. MINORITY ACTION GROUPS

    ReplyDelete
  66. The reality is this is all old news. What matters are actions that can directly be linked to him. Let's take a look. How about the fact that the only flip flop he has ever had is on the death penalty. Why? Because RP knew it was applied in a racist manner. He also opposes the war on drugs in large part because it's racist in the way it fills prisons with blacks (thank Billy Clinton there). What else? He also states that war is sends minorities and the poor to die for the rich.

    A lot of the complaints in the newsletters actually deserve further discussion, but this is hardly the place for that type of honesty. Hyper PC mob rule is obviously the norm here and that's kind of the point.

  67. Good point Kyle! When you say "I'm sorry, but acknowledging that various peoples behave differently or calling Minority Action groups to account for themselves is not racism. " that's totally fair! Because when Bobby Fischer (who as we know from Ron Paul nobody has ever heard of any more, and nobody thinks is any good at chess at all) said the Holocaust was a fabrication, why, that wasn't a manifestation of batshit crazy antisemitism, he was just being "politically incorrect" and acknowleging that different people behave differently!

    It is good you are around to clear up these misunderstandings.

  68. "He also opposes the war on drugs in large part because it's racist in the way it fills prisons with blacks (thank Billy Clinton there)."

    Yes. Bill Clinton. He is the one who started the war on drugs.

    Also let's get one thing straight: RON PAUL DOES NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE WAR ON DRUGS. He merely wants to make it the purview of the states. His position will result in no fewer blacks in prison on drug charges, just fewer blacks in FEDERAL prison on drug charges. Go sell your stupid bullshit elsewhere.

  69. Somebody found a reference to an OB-GYN magazine in the newsletters, which means that whoever wrote at least that particular one had a subscription to a gynecological medical journal. Hmmmm....

    Coincidentally, this is the very same issue that calls Bobby Fischer's views "politically incorrect".

  70. Actually, that was my first comment on this sad posting. But, nice try. I actually use my account instead of hiding behind various pen names and anonymity.

    @ the last "Anonymous," who died as a result of Bobby Fischer's viewpoints? How many drones has he sent to villages in the 3rd world, how many fathers has he waterboarded?

    He may be bat crazy but unlike the REAL threats to Liberty, it affects me not in the slightest.

    I'll judge Dr. Paul by his *actual* voting record. Riga, at least the people posting videos have actual proof of several things- Dr. Paul's record and consistency (as well as honesty about his ONE flip flop and reason for that). Whereas this posting has a little guilty-by-association and proxy, and a lot of slant by desperate state cultists.

  71. You have to be kidding me. Where was your criticism of Obama in Rev. Wright's church? This is the same thing. Paul didn't write it. Lame story. This is guilt by association, the same thing the republicans were trying to do to Obama in 08. You're as bad as the retards on Fox News.

    ReplyDelete
  72. 70 some comments before me so not sure if anyone will read this, but...

    Hmmm, lots of stuff up there, it's late, so I'll try to focus. First, I'm a Paul supporter. Supported him in 2007 and will vote for him again this cycle.

    On foreign paranoia: the US has meddled in foreign affairs for decades and we are kidding ourselves if we think Paul's suspicion of such meddling is pure fantasy. We have a long history of military and monetary shenanigans outside our borders. Paul voicing it might not be comforting, but it doesn't erase our actions abroad.

    On giving money to his campaign: you seem to imply that Paul taking $ from donors via newletter subscriptions and campaign contributions is unscrupulous. 1) It's a voluntary transaction 2) Surely it can't be any worse than Romney and Obama lining their coffers/pockets with Goldman Sachs, BOA, Triple Canopy, etc $ via serving up pro-big-lobby-dollar-agenda-item-of-the-moment rhetoric.

    On racist and homophopic newsletter material: appalling content to be sure. However, and I'll surely take heat for this, that's why we have the 1st ammendment is it not? Regardless of who wrote those words, the defense of the 1st Ammendment is vital. To somehow imply that Paul, as a result of the newsletter content (whether via racist indignation or gross negligence) has not defended or will not defend the 1st ammendent and other vital rights would be a difficult position to defend.

    Overall: I'm of the persuasion that his voting record carries much more merit than these newsletters. As such, I'm curious to know if you believe his voting record shows signs of racism. Admittedly, I have not examined every vote Paul has cast over the years - not even close - but of what I have seen, I conclude he takes his oath of office to preserve individual liberty more seriously than most elected politicians and certainly more than the other GOP noms.

    And one final comment on political correctness: I read a YouTube (very trustworthy source, I know) comment today that said something to the effect of "real racists guise their hatred in political correctness, all the while forcefully legislating their bigotry on the masses" (private prison systems, miltary industrial complex, criminalization of drugs). I agree with that sentiment and, though the following might put me in the minority, and may be difficult for some to understand, I would rather deal with someone on direct terms over insincere platitudes.

  80. This is... unfortunate. I kind of wish I hadn't seen it but it exists and that's a problem. Good comprehensive evidence of long-term, not just racism, but just overall vile and despicable statements.

    The problem is, at this point there is no way I vote for a Democrat for national office again. Obama was the last hope and the way I see it, at least Ron Paul is likely to do away with much of the corruption with Treasury & the Fed, restoring some sense of the rule of law and civil liberties while also getting us out of wars and whittling down Defense spending.

    Also, much of his destructive domestic agenda really can't be accomplished without Congressional cooperation.

    But I'm still trying to decide over this extreme racism and homophobia. I mean, under our current administration there has been laughably no repercussions, or even recourse for victims, over ACTUAL racist actions by the banks. Take the revelation that Countrywide gave sub-prime loans to significant percentages of minorities DESPITE the fact that those minorities qualified for prime loans. They were not only ripped off, but most wound up losing their homes. No recourse for them, no real punishment for Countrywide and Bank of America can continue to pretty much do the same thing as the Obama administration swept everything under the rug.

    Faced with that, I still lean towards saying Ron Paul is the best option. Hopefully paired with a semi-reasonable Congress most of what is accomplished will be good and then we try four years from now for someone who can undo the bad.

  83. Last time I checked, Ron Paul never denied the existence of the newsletters nor what was contained therein. What he denies is having authored them or known about them. I find it hard to believe a man with his own private ob/gyn practice has time to write a newsletter. I barely have time to write my blog and I don't have nearly the amount of responsibilities as a private medical practitioner.

    I was concerned about this back in 2007 when I first heard of it. After taking another long look at Paul's history - including speeches, books and voting record - I believe he made the fantastic error of not paying attention to these newsletters. He's claimed responsibility for that and I'm satisfied.

    At this point, we all know his response to these claims. It's time for the press to either accept them or not.

    ReplyDelete

  85. HAHAHAA not hardly.. We don't give a shit about these 'newsletters'.

    You make it sound like this is some new discovery.... face it, society will always have some people who are racists --- the difference here is, these staffers made 'indelicate' comments (subjective) while Obama's racists are dangerous organized groups like the Panthers and Farrakhan and no one cared and now he's a president -- one who wrote a RACIST book himself that was NOT subjective.

    This whole issue about RP is a non issue and laughable. You progressives are the biggest hypocrites in the world.

  87. I know RP personally and he would never have written these nor does he even speak like this. He already said his staff wrote them and he disavows anything that could be construed as racist. And besides, why are you not considering that of the 4000 babies he delivered, 3000 of them were minorities? That doesn't count I guess.

    But I see this is futile since you are not posting pro-Paul comments only anti.

  89. W/r/t the "lesser of two evils" argument people have posted: that's completely irrelevant when it comes to Ron Paul. He can't be the lesser of two evils because he won't be one of the choices. If you accept that you're going to put your support behind a candidate who has no chance of winning, you're giving yourself the freedom to pick *anybody*. No reason to evaluate Ron Paul's relative terribleness against anyone else's terribleness. If you support Ron Paul, you support everything about him. If you don't support everything about him, there's absolutely no reason you can't look elsewhere.

  93. All bow down to the Lords of the Internet, the Warriors of the Armchair.

    If I started publishing a newsletter I could say what ever I want and name you as editor. With the massive amounts of publications in the world, how could you dream of finding and reading through it all? Would you catch every thing I wrote? Do you have that much time? Most likely not and you sit on the internet all day. Imagine how busy Dr. Paul is during his average day and tell me he has time to proof read every thing some yahoo writes in his name. If you can deny all that, you are the one living in denial.

    ReplyDelete
  94. "Imagine how busy Dr. Paul is during his average day"

    you realize he was out of congress from '85-'97, when the bulk of these offensive comments were published, right? he in fact had a substantially lighter workload back then than he does now


    "and tell me he has time to proof read every thing some yahoo writes in his name."

    you mean the yahoo he named editor? of a million-dollar business entity? the yahoo for whom he's personally responsible? the business entity for which he's personally responsible? you know, ron paul, the candidate of personal responsibility


    "If you can deny all that, you are the one living in denial."

    fun to see you're going with "i support the libertarian candidate for whom personal responsibility doesn't matter" and argument #1 up there -- that he wasn't competent enough to run his own newsletter when out of office so he's basically too fucking stupid/incompetent to be president

    ReplyDelete
  95. If a democrat or republican had a similar newsletter and published equally vile garbage under their name, would you beleive the "I never read or wrote any of this stuff" argument? These are really dumb excuses that don't survive first contact with reality.

    You got fooled by a politician who marketed himself as something above politics as usual. Which is a common experience these days. And I understand that no one likes to admit they got conned, fair enough. But if you've got a real ideology, independent of single politicians, then it doesn't matter what Ron Paul does or did in the past. You just discard the idiot and move on with your policy goals.

    Trying to cover for his bigotry with equally dumb excuses like "He never SAID he's a racist" isn't helping anyone look better. It certainly doesn't help libertarianism look rational.

  96. "Paul supporters face three losing propositions:"


    Actually, there's a 4th option, and it's not a losing one -- it's actually the option that Paul has been saying all along. Paul was busy with his practice, and he was the PRODUCER, not the EDITOR -- the EDITOR reads every paragraph of what is written, whereas the PRODUCER merely puts his name on it and doesn't necessarily HAVE to read any of it.
    Should Paul have read what was written? Duh, even he says that. Did he? He's said from the beginning that he didn't. Burden of proof is STILL on you to prove he's lying.

    "He lacks the competency to control content published under his own name for over a decade, and is thus unfit to lead a country."

    Whoa, hold the horses. "If A, then B" in this particular situation is a non-sequiter. It doesn't necessarily follow, and it's actually quite a big jump.

  98. Y'know, it's really funny how the looooong string of racist and just plain crazy writing, published, endorsed & sold with Paul's name on it had nothing to do with Ron Paul!

    http://tinyurl.com/869hf5c

    No wait, I bet THAT letter was sent without Ron's knowledge too right? Oh, that's right, Ron *said* he wasn't a racist and insisted that he didn't write any of those nasty letters. Well, good enough for me! How can a few decades of published evidence stand up to Ron's word!

  99. The point of supporting Ron Paul is not based on an expectation that he will win the presidency, but that he will serve as a threat to the Republicans to force them to adopt Paul's platform or else risk losing Paul's supporters. During the general election. And don't assume those newsletters will have the expected affect of costing Ron Paul minority votes. The anti-semitic, anti-homosexual, anti-Israel rhetoric has more resonance than you may think. The newsletter's commentary on black-on-white violent probably guarantees him several million votes whether or not he wrote them. Whether or not Ron Paul is elected, QE3 is coming next year, European debt default is coming next year and economic will continue to feed the fringes. 80 million Americans own 300 million guns. Ron Paul will be the least of your worries.

    ReplyDelete
  100. So, Ron Paul's defense is that he was just making money off of the newsletters by letting the unsupervised writers use his name for the publication. Like Martha Stewart Living. I mean, nobody expects Martha Stewart to have actually written everything in her magazine, right? It's just a branding thing. So he sold the Ron Paul "brand" but unfortunately he didn't police it properly, which was a mistake in retrospect, but doesn't mean these newsletters reflect Paul's own views.

    The problem with this "defense" is that, if say, Martha Stewart Living started suddenly running this racist garbage in between the muffin recipes, I'm sure a massive number of subscribers to the magazine would have written in to complain or cancel their subscriptions. They'd write in to complain "This isn't what I expect from Martha Stewart!" I'm sure at least ONE of Martha's friends would have shown here the magazine and asked "Have you seen the shit they are printing in your magazine now?" And Martha Stewart would, at the very least, have to come out with a "sorry for all the racist stuff in that last issue" apology the next time it went to press.

    Supposedly the newsletter had around 100,000 subscribers. 100,000 Ron Paul supporters read this shit and didn't think it went against the Ron Paul brand. None of them wrote concerned or angry letters to Ron Paul asking why his newsletter had taken this disgusting turn. None of Ron Paul's friends read this and said, "Wait, this goes against everything the noble Dr. Paul that I know stands for! I must alert him to this!"

    Nope. 100,000 subscribers read this and said "This is what I expect from Ron Paul." And these were his supporters. None of Ron Paul's hard-core supporters read this in 1995 and brought it to his attention as being not what they expected from him.

    100,000 Ron Paul supporters subscribed to this newsletter and thought it accurately represented the Ron Paul "brand." Because they are racist, and Ron Paul is racist, and everybody knew it.

  102. Mobutu. You may not understand this. Seeing as you can't understand the simple fact that speaking about literal facts isn't racism. But the way you're talking and fanning the flames. You yourself are being racist. To try and spin this crap is to support racism itself. We're all human. And if we all had the same rights things would be fair again. But apparently humanity hasn't learned anything in the last 100 years right? We didn't end slavery in the 1800s, and we don't all want the same things? Is that what you're trying to say? That because people have different skin color they should be treated differently than others? Because that is RACIST itself. You need to cleanse your pineal gland and find the facts. And these newsletters may have "racist" overtones, but most of the quotes you pointed out, specifically the LA one is hilarious to try and say it's racist. Because it was true in LA who was rioting and looting. I watched footage on the news when I was a kid and don't recall any white people. Not that it really matters. If the system was balanced, we wouldn't have that crap occurring. But guess what it isn't. The very bills that were supposed to balance things, actually made things worse. And if you can't see that, you're a poor American. INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS ARE NOT RACIST! THEY ARE FAIR! I agree with others. SHOW ME ONE CLIP OF AUDIO OR VIDEO WHERE HE SAYS SOMETHING RACIST.

  105. While many of Paul's comments are indefensible, so too are some of the objections by the author. In other words, I don't agree with either of you people. Paul's racism should be disclosed, and he should not be president -- but neither should any of the other criminals who will take the position of frontrunner in the two corporate parties.

    The author seems to wield the blanket smear "conspiracy" or "conspiracist" so fast and loose that no facts are required to bolster any of his jabs at Paul.

    Fact is, conspiracies in DC are the norm, not the exception. This is a global empire that engages in conspiracies in violation of International Law all over the world, and has done so for over a century. The body count, by some tallies, is in excess of 10 million corpses just since WW2. Conspiracy, though proven time and again, and one of the most prosecuted crimes in the nation, according to DOJ, still has this air about it that simple propagandists can take the word and use it as an insult. This likely stems back to the JFK assassination (by CIA proxies), where it was so obvious there was a government tie in that the very idea of anyone thinking a "conspiracy" could exist had to be ridiculed and made to be verboten in the supposed "land of the free."

    Facts be damned, anyone who believes in conspiracy (the agreement between two or more people to commit any crime) must by insane!

  109. I don't see a "signature" anywhere. Cannot imagine, after reading Dr. Paul's published writings, him using the term "dudes". Have you ever seen any video or legitimately authored books by him? The "tone" is nothing like his writing. Further, if, as you admit, there is truth to any of the comments [as the congressional record would strongly suggest there is] how is that racist?
    all I can say is that falling for this persecution of Dr. Paul is the equivalent of cutting off one's nose to spite one's face. What you should be looking at is what he has done, what he wants to do, particularly w/regard to leveling the field for minorities, his desire to see families put back together, non violent drug users [of which a disproportionate number are minority] let out of prison, seeing that all civil rights are protected without the need for segmenting different peoples in to groups, which goes further to separate than bind. By labeling, we increase the chasm between races, religions, life style choices etc. We should all be american and all our differences protected under that label alone. A persecuted individual should not get protection because they are this or that color or religion or gender or sexual preference, but because they are human beings.

    The terminology I see in these articles do not sound at all like anything I've ever read or heard him say. Also, even if he were to believe that homosexuality is wrong or dangerous, as long as he makes no move to legislate against it,and believes all people should have the right to choose who they want to be, he has a right to his personal beliefs.

  118. Do you have evidence of Ron Paul making 1 million dollars off these newsletters? I've read it from other sources, but none of them have provided actual proof.

    "Sanchez and Weigel's original 2008 article
    claimed that a tax document from June 1993 reported an annual income of $940,000 for RonPaul & Associates [RP&A], listing four employees in Texas (Paul's family and Rockwell)and seven more employees around the country" However, Ron Paul & Associates also involved many other activities besides the newsletters, so how can one say that all the money came from the newsletters. Also, income is not entirely based on profit.

  119. You Paulbottians do realize that one can detest both Republicans and Democrats and still think that Ron Paul is a contemptible nutbag, right? Let us even put aside the racist slurs in the newsletters. But mind control via the new money? Looney tunes, guys. Looney tunes.

  120. All you have to do is search Ron Paul 1996 Newsletters WHERE HE ADMITTED TO WRITING THEM and decried everyone's apparent inability to see past his racism and into the real issue of getting rid of all the blacks, jews, muslims, and gays.

  121. Game, set, and match, Mr. Destructo. I knew about the racial slurs, but the most of the homophobia was new to me, and extremely disturbing.
    The more thoroughly Ron Paul is exposed, the more secure his place on the trash heap of American hate.

  122. it seems that most of those newsletters were just representing what was going on in the world...look at today, obama has created a class war right here in America - when was the last time you heard about some group of people fighting and mobbing and looting here in America - last night at Mall of America - a few days ago with the Nike shoes ??? the Animals are coming and they have been taught that they are entitled to everything. look at their behaviour over the last year and tell me otherwise... if the truth hurts...

  123. I agree that this should be addressed at all levels by the media and Dr. Paul. And I also believe the the media will spin anything in any direction it sees fit. So if there was a clear, well executed, and substantiate explanation given by Dr. Paul, ignorant media junkies would still believe whatever the media says. Whats the use? America is too dumb to care and to matter anymore. Say all you want about any politician and believe whatever you want from the media gods, Ron Paul has been right about more political and economic issues over the past 20 years than most people would like to admit and has the most consistent voting record supported that leans no where near racist or bigot. Sure dont see anyone reporting about that. No matter the letters, he is the only one with principles, I dont think he has a chance of winning, but I still support him. Have a good life beggin for government cheese when the economy collapses in the next 5 years.

    1. Haha, I like how Ron Paul supporters project their own ideals onto him, regardless of what he actually says/does in reality. Having better foreign/drug policy views doesn't make his economic/social views any less awful.

      For future reference - if anyone thinks we should return to a gold standard, they don't understand anything about economics. A gold standard (or tying money to any commodity for that matter) causes very high deflation. Deflation is far worse than inflation, because it greatly benefits the rich at the expense of the poor. A rich person gains wealth simply by holding onto his money (each dollar becomes worth more), not only increasing the wealth gap but also greatly decreasing the incentive to invest (this is also why controlled inflation is a good thing; it forces the rich to invest their money to avoid seeing its value decrease). People with debt, which includes a large portion of poor/middle class Americans (car loans, mortgages, student loans), would see the value of their debt increase, hurting them greatly and helping issuers of debt. The net outcome would be a huge increase in an already massive wealth gap*.

      There are other serious problems with a gold standard, but the one I just mentioned is enough to highlight what a terrible idea it is.

      *And a wealth gap where wealth/income isn't even tied to personal merit/hard work. The greatest predictor of a person's future wealth and income is the wealth/income of his/her parents, and income mobility is very low. Unless you believe that the wealthy (and white people) are genetically superior to everyone else, it's absurd to act like most rich people are more hard working/talented.

  124. I don't care about any of this crap.

    *IF* (and that's a gargantuan "if") Paul became president and all his ideas are fully implemented (ok, sorry, two gargantuan "ifs"), then it would mean that the American imperial monster would lose its fangs.

    American social programs might suffer, but this suffering would pale in comparison to the suffering that American Imperialism routinely has inflicted throughout the world on a DAILY BASIS for many decades.

    I'm willing to trade off kooky socioeconomic policy and a bit of racism for the end of Imperialism. Get Americans out of the business of running and destroying other countries, and let the American people then worry about the negative policy programs at a domestic level.

  125. Newsletters aren't really that bad once you've posted a lot of them. I'm relieved to know that this is indeed a total non-issue and farce. But of course, the establishment scum will keep using this to attempt to assassinate his campaign. Whether Republican or Democrat, they love their vicious empire and the power and esteem it brings them. It doesn't matter to these Republicans and Democrats if the children in the Middle East get their faces blown off because some bad words appeared in decades-old newsletters. What a bunch of trash.

  126. You would have been better served to talk about the trillions of dollars in secret bailouts given to European banks with taxpayer money by the Federal Reserve.

  129. Here it is in terms that everyone should be able to understand:

    Think of each newsletter as a personal check. Congressman Paul denies having written many of them. Now, while he can cast doubt that he himself wrote in the "Pay to" or "Amount" lines of each check (because some of the individual articles weren't bylined); he can't deny that the checks themselves are from his checkbook, nor can he deny that it's his signature on the signature line. Therefore, he can deny all he wants to that he is a racist, homophobic, etc. bigot; but the stark reality of his positions is on paper for all to see.

    The lesson? Don't let your paranoia/stupidity write "checks" that your body politic can't handle.

  130. As a musician from San Francisco, I can confirm how ludicrous Dr. Paul's fantasies are about Bohemian Grove. The Bohemian Club was started by a bunch of musicians, then they invited their rich friends in to help them run/fund the place, and the rich guys took it over. I was invited to join several times, and attended a few dinners, but frankly, listening to a bunch of bankers talk about nailing their secretaries is not my idea of a fun time. Camping out with these finance geeks in the Grove, ditto. It's all very forced and pretentious, and many of the fat cats are really despicable, immature people. But that doesn't mean that they carve up a map of the world every time they get together, or frolic in homoerotic abandon. It's like the Shriners, except everyone's income is in the high six figures+. In other words, dull, but great, elaborate floor shows and hired talent (like top jazz and classical musicians and A-list actors). And insufferable, pointless amateur dramatic shows.

  131. This is wonderful. Look at this wheedling lunacy:

    "it seems that most of those newsletters were just representing what was going on in the world.."

    "It's a little bit more of a pressing issue than some decades-old newsletters"

    "this is indeed a total non-issue"

    "kooky socioeconomic policy and a bit of racism"

    "No matter the letters, he is the only one with principles"

    People, people...the idea that the federal government is printing paper currency to control your mind is not simply "kooky", "non -issue" in some "old newsletter". It is a full fledged paranoid delusion. It is not, and was never, a supportable notion, full stop. Ron Paul is a nutbag. He may be a principled nutbag, but it is not sensible to elect someone you KNOW is a nutbag to one of the most challenging jobs in the world, because people tend to loosen up their principles under pressure, and its probably only his principles that are keeping Dr Nutbag from going full throttle.

  132. OK, I read all the pages you have posted, thanks for the effort of finding and scanning them.

    I find nothing inherently racist in any of it. Certainly I have heard Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton say much worse things much more recently.

    Politically Incorrect, yes, guilty. Big deal. Political Correctness is a scourge on society wherein certain groups are given a pass to do and say anything they want, while others dare to say anything at all and are demonized forever.

    Whether he wrote it, was aware of it, or not makes no difference to me. The man's actions and voting record speak for themselves. He is the only candidate proposing real common sense solutions and therefore has my support.

  133. Read them all. I didn´t realize Ron Paul had radical ideas!... oh wait... everybody did.

    What I do not see is all the supposed racism and bigotry. What I do see is a lot of discussion about taboo issues, and that´s a good thing in my book.

    Y para que lo sepas, soy latino, and you are a reactionary with a narrative to defend. You want to guide people´s opinion... good thing I went throgh them without reading your point of view first. Those who do will be misinformed by this clown.

    So you´re right on one thing: everyone needs to read the newsletters themselves, not the bloggers opinions, which are designed to lead you where he wants.

  134. Why Mr. Destructo bears responsibility for Racism.

    Mr. Destructo apparently unconcerned for the racist and homophobic content that he is spreading, has published some of Ron's old newsleters. Unfortunately he signed up for a Google adwords account and failed to properly secure the keywords it would use to display adds. Since he mentions Ron Paul quite a bit, it keeps serving up ads that support Ron Paul. The net effect of this is that he will make money when I click the 'support Ron Paul' ad. Which I have done. You are Welcome.

    Now he could claim that he didn't know that this would happen. But come on, you have a blog right? You understand that this would happen. Just like Ron understoood that by letting his writers, like Lew Rockwell, publish his newsletter that racist and homophobic content would be published. Plus Paul made money off the arrangement so he had some moral responsibility right? The point is that if you trust others to bring content for you, then you bear moral responsibility for the content you serve up.

    Here Mr. Destructo has trusted google to serve up content for him. Google does so in the way Google normally does (In this case, automatic keyword aggregation). But Mr. Destructo could control some of the adds that appear on his site if he took the time and effort to control them. Also he MADE MONEY off the ads.

    According to the formula used with the Paul attacks I usually see, moral responsibility= racist content + making money. The fact that you did not supervise or control the content from which you made money does not matter. Mr. Destructo ran Ron Paul ads on his site, that were served up by Google. Thus he bears moral respoinsibility for supporting Ron Paul...and by extension, because Ron Paul is of course morally culpable for the newsletters content (See above formula), he is responsible for the racism of the newsletters.

    Thus Mr. Destructo, you are morally culpable as a racist. And enjoy the $.12 that you got from my click on a Ron Paul ad.

  137. Check out this lady's site, or just Google "Jean McIver". Her name appeared at the bottom of some of the newsletters as some type of manager. I doubt she was just an "admin girl" as evidenced by her political aspirations. Is it possible she penned any of the letters? Her website's current posting certainly reflects the obcession with Martin Luther King we see in the newsletters...

  141. There is a big racial double standard.
    Learn the difference between referencing racial and being racist.
    criticizing black rioters killing whites or black gang bangers carjacking whites nor is quoting a racial profiling report about D.C. and if your black and in front of a judge you're going to jail. is racial criticism. I never seen a white Crip.
    or that mutherfucking nigger or blacks cannot fly airplanes because there brains cannot handle it.(fighter pilots of ww2) or he looks like a mokey. etc.etc. this is racist.
    Is "white men can't jump", racist?

    "If you live in a major city, you've probably already heard about the newest threat to your life and limb, and your family: carjacking. It is the hip-hop thing to do among the urban youth who play unsuspecting whites like pianos. The youth simply walk up to a car they like, pull a gun, tell the family to get out, steal their jewelry and wallets, and take the car to wreck. Such actions have ballooned in the recent months. In the old days, average people could avoid such youth by staying out of bad neighborhoods. Empowered by media, police, and political complicity, however, the youth now roam everywhere looking for cars to steal and people to rob. What can you do? More and more Americans are carrying a gun in the car. An ex-cop I know advises that if you have to use a gun on a youth, you should leave the scene immediately, disposing of the wiped off gun as soon as possible. Such a gun cannot, of course, be registered to you, but one bought privately (through the classifieds, for example)."

    Now try reading that quote again, but replace the word "youth" with "nigger." Let's not pretend it's meant to be anything else.


    "Nearly every other group but whites are allowed a certain degree of cultural autonomy. Blacks have black schools, clubs, and neighborhoods. The same is true of Hispanics. It is human nature that like attracts likes. But whites are not allowed to express this same human impulse. Except in a de facto sense, there can be no white schools, white clubs, or white neighbor hoods [sic]. The political system demands white integration, while allowing black segregation. The youth culture is already driven by ghetto music and ghetto values.... And the sexual ethics of our youth are also degenerating to the level of the ghetto."
    Are you kidding me? I am black and this is spot on with the way alot of blacks act.
    Remember when the Bloods and Crips spread across america like a plague.
    Those riots pulling those white people out of their cars.
    Cause face everything is great since MLK. When did criticizing him become racist.
    The self righteous do a tremendous disservice to blacks for treating those who shame us with this behavior giving them a pass over a white man who tells it like it is. Go ahead take the Blood and Crips or the rioters side. Or the [victim mentality that has forced many of us to get a living from welfare or stick up for a racist like Al Sharpton. is this really the best blacks can do?

    Hey but you left one out to prove Ron Paul a racist:
    ” Last year hundreds of Americans died
    ‘liberating ‘ Kuwait, and now we are getting more information about what they died for Foreign embassies in Kuwait are crowded with slaves–yes, slaves–who used wartime confusion to escape from their rich Kuwaiti masters.
    The British government documented more than 1,000 cases of Filipino, Bangladeshis, and West Africans held in bondage by the ruling Kuwaiti tribe.
    “Note the irony of Black Americans risking their live to return Kuwaiti slave owners to power.
    Shame on you people.
    Nothing but a race baiter looking for apologists. If you like the ghetto like it is today stick with the author. I vote with personal responsibility and empowerment. fool!

  148. Lew Rockwell made statements resembling those in the newsletters around the same time they were published. All signs point to him writing them.

    Because all of the news stories I had seen previously only cited one or two quotes over and over, I assumed that the mainstream media was just spinning and smearing.

    But here's the truth. Any true free thinker can't ignore this.

    It doesn't matter if Ron Paul didn't write them. He couldn't have possibly not known that those writing them held these broad sentiments towards gays and blacks. I think Ron Paul is too smart to be so oblivious.

    This is more than "a couple of sentences here and there." It's antithetical to what he preaches.

  150. Just how is this blog post meaningful or relevant? I've been wanting to read these newsletters, and now that I've actually compared what you've editorialized to what each page says, you're out of your gourd. You have not made the case Dr. Paul is racist. The only explanation is that you are a racist. An unmitigated, but ever-so-subtle paranoid racist, afraid of what the end of the welfare state means to your deranged world view. Clinging desperately to maintain the status-quo that elevates your Ivory tower ass above the mass of humanity that doesn't derive it's sustenance by the proxy use of violence to steal the food out of the mouths of labor.
    I may be a Troll, but where is it definitively argued that all trolls are wrong, you RACIST.
    Please keep in mind all your defensive arguments are voided because you are a RACIST pig.

    “Force and mind are opposites; morality ends where the gun begins.” Like that one? You'll hate it when you look it up.

    Here's one from a fellow racist like you (he couldn't abide the "kaffirs"(his words) like you) that I think adequately sums you up:
    "Rationalists are admirable beings, but rationalism is a hideous monster when it claims for itself omnipotence. Attribution of omnipotence to reason is as bad a piece of idolatry as is worship of a stick and stone believing it to be God."

  151. "reasonable fans of Dr. Paul now must accept that there's no way Paul could have been ignorant of the content [of] 8-12 page newsletters published under his name for over ten years. Paul supporters face three losing propositions:

    • He lacks the competency to control content published under his own name for over a decade, and is thus unfit to lead a country."

    Doesn't follow. The fact that he failed to closely monitor the content of a newsletter in the pre-internet era only means that his attention was elsewhere. There are various aspects to my life that I ignore because I've got better things to do and assume everything's ok. The newsletters don't speak to RP's competence...perhaps he preferred to focus his attention on his medical practice.

  157. Thank you SO much for posting these. When the net came up, some of these letters were circulating on AOL's chat rooms. These people think the world was invented when the net came up. Or whenever they finally bothered with the technology for it's ORIGINALLY intended purpose. Fargo completely missed the most exciting parts of the Occupy Movement. The funniest thing is, they think it's over. For every Occupier, count on at least a hundred people supporting each one of them online, or in their own activist collectives. It feels like they've been holding back all efforts to freedom of speech as long as I can remember.
    Now they have people thinking governments run only 4 years at a time.

    I can't stomach reading all of it. How much does one need? He's fundamentally wrong on SO many levels, it's beyond logical consideration. In fact, my class was singing Flipper at HIM in 1981! Yes, we were informed, growing up outside of ground zero. We just didn't realize how limited the access to news has been until now-ish. Do you want to know how the first Black suburban voting district was formed? I'm building my tumblr page to meme it all out for a book I'm writing.
    Our lives are based on a slave days win-lose scenario that has to level out somehow. Schools are a lame update to the colleges training factory workers. And Ron Paul only got his fame because people thought the flautist Jean Pierre Rampal was running for office! After that, it's been garbage and all that mess on You Tube was a collection of when he said something that made sense, NOT when he was off his flipping NUT.
    They say, "At least he's...this that and the other"...pfft. Don't we deserve BETTER?
    If they're so patriotic, VOTE for some competent leaders! They continue to throw their pearls to the swine, saying God said so and Willie Lynch lives to terrorize, yet another generation! Just substitute all the slave references to employee and see what you have left.
    How about a new space race, a war on ignorance and poverty? Why can't they get behind Jesus and stop this selective bibling. Or do we just keep the big lie going?
    It's wage gap castration and the blue pill isn't going to save anybody! And look at his son! UGH! He's passed his poison on and people are still eating it up.
    In the orgy that is GTOP politics, Ron Paul and his spawn are nothing but hopeful fluffers!
    I am so sick and tired of being feared, it's come to make me physically ill. Only a complete ass would enjoy that kind of power. True power is in the ability to uplift another. They are only more powerful than the slaves they oppress and oops...they've got the WHOLE middle class after them now. Well, we sang it on the mountain, we died on burning crosses, marched on frozen Malls, and look how easily people are just handing all that over.... by building an arsenal in every blessed household? I was raised conservative, so they aren't fooling me. We READ now, so now they have to fess up and account for their lies and cheating. Too big to fail? Only if we continue to allow it and there is no excuse in this digital age to let that power persist.
