- ... (The) conspiracy to ignore and marginalize presidential
candidate Ron Paul is not a theory. In this case, a jury would have to
conclude a conspiracy against Dr. Paul by the corporation-controlled media
- First, MSNBC reported that Ron Paul scored the highest
positive votes in both Republican debates he attended. That means he beat
out Romney, McCain and Giuliani. There was no mention of these poll results
in the major media.
- Dick Morris, political pundit and former Clinton buddy,
wrote an opinion piece that appeared in many media publications 5/7/07,
in which he claimed John McCain had won the debate, and I could find nowhere
in his piece that Ron Paul had even attended.
- CNN's Glenn Beck, an alleged conservative (my fanny)
ran a tiny clip on his show that tried to make Ron Paul look like a blithering
idiot. He then went on to ask, "How did this guy get in the debate
- Even WorldNetDaily, a prominent, conservative Internet
news provider, has largely ignored Ron Paul's candidacy.
- When a candidate wins two debate polls in a row that
are reported by the likes of MSNBC on its own web page, that is news, especially
since the winner of both polls allegedly had no chance to win the nomination.
The media normally jumps on that kind of news, because people in America
love underdogs, but not this time.
- No, this is a concerted effort.
- Please review below what Representative Ron Paul stands
for, and far more importantly, what he has done. Among other things, Ron
Paul is the only congressmen who got up and demanded Congress declare war
before attacking Iraq.

- He returns a portion of his annual congressional office
budget to the U.S. treasury every year.
- Congressman Paul introduces numerous pieces of substantive
legislation each year, probably more than any single member of Congress.
- Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) is the leading advocate
for freedom in our nation's capital. As a member of the U.S. House of
Representatives, Dr. Paul tirelessly works for limited constitutional government,
low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies. He is
known among his congressional colleagues and his constituents for his consistent
voting record. Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed
measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution. In the words of former
Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the "one exception to
the Gang of 535" on Capitol Hill.
- Ron Paul was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
He graduated from Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of
Medicine, before proudly serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force
during the 1960s. He and his wife Carol moved to Texas in 1968, where he
began his medical practice in Brazoria County. As a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology,
Dr. Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies. He and Carol, who reside
in Lake Jackson, Texas, are the proud parents of five children and have
- While serving in Congress during the late 1970s and early
1980s, Dr. Paul's limited-government ideals were not popular in Washington.
In 1976, he was one of only four Republican congressmen to endorse Ronald
Reagan for president.
- During that time, Congressman Paul served on the House
Banking committee, where he was a strong advocate for sound monetary policy
and an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve's inflationary measures.
He was an unwavering advocate of pro-life and pro-family values. Dr.
Paul consistently voted to lower or abolish federal taxes, spending and
regulation, and used his House seat to actively promote the return of government
to its proper constitutional levels. In 1984, he voluntarily relinquished
his House seat and returned to his medical practice.
- Dr. Paul returned to Congress in 1997 to represent the
14th congressional district of Texas. He presently serves on the House
Committee on Financial Services and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
He continues to advocate a dramatic reduction in the size of the federal
government and a return to constitutional principles.
- Congressman Paul's consistent voting record prompted
one of his congressional colleagues to say, "Ron Paul personifies
the Founding Fathers' ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear
that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are."
Another colleague observed, "There are few people in public life
who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles.
Ron Paul is one of those few."
