You aren't the only one. I'm highly skeptical of that claim.

These crosstabs from Public Policy Polling for Dec 11-18, 2001 contradict that claim. Michelle Bachman has the highest favorability and it's still a net unfavorable.

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/p...al_1220925.pdf

He did have the highest support in one CNN poll, but that was only 25% favorability. That's a very small hook on which to hang such a big claim. Matched with Obama he polls 10%, less than Romney's 12 and Gingrich's 13 and that is before the newsletters got much scrutiny.

Of course, google blacks support Ron Paul and you get videos saying blacks support Paul more than Obama, but I think that should be edited to (a) black supports Paul more than Obama since the only evidence is one black man saying he supports Paul more than Obama.

But but but, all you need is one member of a political minority to agree with you to justify your fucked-up policies!

In early book, Rep. Ron Paul criticized AIDS patients, minority rights and sexual harassment victims – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

It was re-released in 2007, but he hasn't addressed it.

Ron Paul supporter attacks Huntsman with racist ad:


OMG HE SPEAKS CHINESE, YELLOW PERIL!!!

From the video:



You can't make this shit up.


Edit: to be fair, there have been suggestions that it's a fake ad aimed at gathering support for Huntsman

As much as I despise Ron Paul's views, it's hard to claim the actions of the lunatic behind NHLiberty4Paul is connected to him beyond simple fandom.


Also...


Now THERE'S a conspiracy theory.

True - but on the other hand, seeing how Paul seems to be the favorite candidate of every loathsome racist pig in the USA, from David Duke to the Stormfront goons, it's a matter worth noticing.

Ah, but what if Ron Paul's camp put the video on YouTube so they could claim it's an attempt of Huntman's daughters to smear him? Hmmm???

Racism is apart of this country, consider the era and region where Ron came from; I'm pretty sure he was a racist. Back then the whole country was in an ass backward racism culture, it was the "norm". We've came a long way and still have work to be done. It seems that Ron has ditched the outdated thinking and moved on to the 21st century.

Racism, marriage right, abortion and all other social issues are tiny compare to the big issues such as corruptions (legalization of corruption) and erosion of civil rights. We can't deal with social issues effectively when the entire political system is corrupted to the bones.

Ron is the lesser of evils, just look at all other candidates. They are all just another Bush, Obama = lying mother fuckers! They are all rotten meats packaged in two different labels with marketing slogans. So it gives a false believe that there are two choices.

Sadly there are too many subjective Americans who are easily falling under the spell of packaged politicians' showmanship via mainstream media. Every four years, they go around the country with American flag wrapped around the cross, then toss the props in the basement once they get into the office. They don't believe in any of it, however they know the power it has over the believers and how to use it for their advantage.

There is only one political party in this country. They have way too much power in their hands right now. The Constitution was written to prevent any one group from having this kind of power. We, the People are failing it right now; and we're the one has the most to lose.

Really, what you are saying is that if it doesn't affect you, you don't care. As to civil rights, the issues of race, marriage and reproductive rights are civil rights issues, just ones you don't care about.

As to the historic context of those newsletter, they are from the 70's not the 50s. They are the letters of the enraged unreconstructed racists objecting to the advancement of civil rights. Society had moved on and Ron Paul did not.

It's not enough to care about liberty if the only liberty you care about is your own.

Its actually much worse. The "race war" solicitation letter wasn't from the 1950's or 1970's. It was written in 1993. By then even Robert Byrd and George Wallace had renounced their old racist beliefs. This guy is "the lesser of evils"?

Honestly, why do so many Paulites sound like they're constantly apologizing for him?

Oh, yeah ......

I also love how Paul and others like him keep trying to push people like Martin Luther King into the libertarian column, which they can only do when they ignore his efforts in social justice and what that would entail politically.

Social and economic justice, at the end right before he died.

Also, how funny!



And I mean "funny" by "I really hope Ron Paul chokes to death on his own lying smarm".

I figured the funny part would have been that the text in that scan was taken from Ron Paul's newsletter.
