This link tells it all: http://www.mrdestruc...cial-issue.html

Page 8 of his 1992 newsletter:

"We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, but it is hardly irrational."

ARE YOU SERIOUS?

The more I read the more it sickens me.


And whoever wrote that crap should step forward and claim it.

I agree with you, but on Page 1 of it, it says "The Ron Paul Newsletter"

and in other issues of his newsletter, it is written from the 1st person (he says "me" and "I" a lot)

Bottom line is that either he wrote it, or he was too lazy to read his own 8 page newsletter written under his name.

And Ron has also acknowledged that he must take responsibility and he has. He also has said he did not write.

At the time, he was also a congressman, an OBGYN and a small business owner. I do not think you can label him lazy. Perhaps irresponsible and put too much trust in the company he kept to ghost write, but lazy, no.

What would you like for him to do regarding this?
He's acknowledged it, and realizes he must bare the blame.

You will be extremely hard pressed to find him talk that way in any public fashion and it goes against his core beliefs (as the video I posted states)

I already shunned him on this in 2007. It's the ONLY thing that people can bring up in a damning light besides claiming his policy platforms are "dangerous", he's unelectable or a fringe. Of course, anyone who already knows of the newsletters was waiting for this.

Again, apparently I have shelved all credibility as a human being. Because I'll still support him and I will vote for him too. :lol:

I think that's enough strikes against him for most people to keep looking for a candidate more deserving of their vote.

What do I expect him to do? I expect him to do exactly what he is doing, and try to sweep it under the carpet. What do I hope Americans do? I hope they don't allow that to happen.

I find it really ironic in many ways that the best that can be said is he's a racist on this. The other candidates are happy as clams to kill off muslims by the 100,000, but not Ron. I've known a lot of racists in my time. anglo, african-a, spanish, muslim(true story, living in NYC...)......never met one only racist against one group they didnt belong too. Always all of them.

Why wouldn't Ron support exploiting these "animals", as the newsletters portray some? It's a head scratcher.

well... I can pretty much guarantee you won't find one in the Republican party.

I'm not trying to convince you. I already told you this. I don't care who you vote for. I'm just telling you why the media ignored him in the beginning and why they're attacking him now.

What news organization would want to be accused of backing him?

Another thing... if this is the kind of drivel that was written in his newsletters, what does that say of his supporters? Did they forget to read them too?

Don't give me that crap he didn't have time to read them. If he didn't have time, then he shouldn't have taken on public service.

That is such a poor excuse.

Well, I can pretty much guarantee that any of the other choices, republican or democrat, you won't find one.

I guess we're completely fucked if that's your view.

Any news organization that offers support for Newt, Mitt, Obama...is guilty of the same issue you have with backing Paul. But that's seems to be fine.

Anyways, breh. Your charges against Paul are flimsy at best. You offer nothing in the solution and add tot he problem. Nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care......

I got video games to play, so have fun, brehmigo. :gop:

They're enough to probably insure that he loses the primary.

But, we'll see how flimsy they are if he does make it to the general election. You think it's bad now.

I'm inclined to let the system stay at its currently default setting for another 4 years if it means having a Republican as the alternative.

Of all the Republicans, I do hope Ron Paul wins the primary... so vote away.

I just think it's funny, the scenario:

me: Ron Paul is a racist bigot

you: wha??? huh??? what do you mean by that?

me: well there was those newsletters...

you: newsletters? lol what newsletters I don't know about any newsletters

me: well, the ones put out under his name

you: he didn't write it, he knew nothing about it, it was 20 years ago and he doesn't speak like that today

you: it's a non-issue. He accepted responsibility for it.

me: ok cya

you: but, but Pleeeeease vote for Ron Paul pleeease!

you are correct TASB, this is the moment I've been waiting for

did you know Ron Paul called Martin Luther King Day "Hate Whitey Day" in one of his newsletters?

The shit just keeps getting deeper. It's much worse than I even suspected.

Peacefrog, in 2008, what did you think of the people in the interview below? How credible did they come across? How strong and reasonable do you think their opinion was?

oh they don't come off as credible at all! lol

but they seem like good sincere people overall, and very misinformed. It truly does break my heart... not to get all sappy and all... it really does though.

And... well... there's a good chance they all harbor some racism... but there's no evidence in the video.

It's not that I hate racists. I kind of feel sad for everyone... its' a tough deal. I think I said already.. maybe in this thread... that unfortunately and well.. it's kind of embarrassing for me to say but my mom is a full out racist who uses the N word and all... her Dad was worse than she is.

it's a sad situation really.

I think I just had a flash of insight and then lost it.

I forget how it happened, but here's my answer.

The material I deliver here on the message board is not meant to be used in an official "civil debate".

I say what I say to amuse and entertain people like yourself, and others with minds similar to myself.

I post on this board the things that others only dare to think.

And trust me, this is my censored self. If I really cut loose I'd be banned.

oh, well now I feel like a dumbass. This is all fiction? Thank god the shit you spew isn't truly you otherwise I'd be mildly worried/concerned.

Just to clarify, what you're saying is that you're the libral nannystater version of :halfstar: .

got it. different kind of lols than halfstar, but I'll try and adjust my view of your participation in debates from ser.biz./org to failing comedic actor.
