Patriots: Check out Ron Paul

Are you satisfied with the direction of this country? If so, you’re probably supporting one of the so-called main contenders for president of the United States. If not, then it’s time to take a look at Ron Paul, the presidential candidate who is actually speaking the truth about U.S. foreign policy, the Constitution, the Federal Reserve and banking system and the delegation of power between the state governments and the federal government.

Paul’s vision for truth and real freedom is exploding [through] an amazing grass-roots revolution that includes many citizens of Asheville.

I have never seen nor heard a politician like Ron Paul—a true patriot who is not afraid of speaking the truth and taking action against enemies foreign and domestic, including our own federal government.

Our bad foreign policy created, creates and will continue to create hatred and terrorism towards the U.S.A. Our leaders are not adhering to the Constitution [when they]: go to war without congressional approval, allow the existence of the Federal Reserve, become involved in education and other programs that are supposed to be under the domain of the states, [and undertake] illegal searches and wiretappings etc.

Ron Paul wants to balance the budget, get out of Iraq and all other countries and defend this country properly, protect our privacy and eliminate the national ID card, end the PATRIOT Act, oppose trade deals that threaten American independence, (GATT, NAFTA etc.), end illegal immigration, allow citizens to keep more of their own money, and promote what this country can really be but has never been—a true leader in peace, freedom, truth, social justice, dignified economic policy at home and abroad, military defense of our borders and not the economic agenda of corporations. A country that is truly a beacon of hope, freedom and prosperity.

Join the Ron Paul Revolution ( or If you want to vote for him in the Republican primary, you have to be a registered as a Republican or as unaffiliated. Call the board of elections for more information: 250-4200 (

    There is a movie online, and available on DVD, that I found and watched recently that addresses these very topics; like the past and present wars, the federal reserve system, the current administration, the dominance of religion, ID cards, and most important…the formation of the North American Union. It’s about 2 hours long, and it will be well worth the time…

    What is the expected likelihood of the Powers That Be formulating another ‘aaaarrghh’ moment for this current populist long-shot doctor?
    A lot of folks thought Dean had a chance in 04, until the media decided (or was told to decide) that he was no longer relevant. Overnight they turned his ‘aaarrghh’ moment into his deathbed.
    I wouldn’t be too surprised if we see something like this from the Paul camp some time next year, as he gains popular support and opinion.
