Ron Paul published this in his newsletter about his “hero” Dr. Martin Luther King. To this day, he denies knowing who wrote it, and gets very defensive talking about his racist newsletters which earned him millions over the years. Ron Paul was listed as the editor and publisher on many issues of his newsletters and they were published from a company which shared the same address as the home he lived in.
Does it matter if he wrote these letters? Not to me. He earned himself a racist fan base and a lot of $ from publishing them. Disgusting: http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t858523/
I really don’t give a damn if he wrote his newsletters or not. The fact is, he published them from his home, he was listed as the editor and publisher on many issues of these letters, his face and signature was planted all over each issue, they sounded like he was talking in first person about “my wife Carrol” and so on, and besides that he made MILLIONS off of this kind of disgusting BS! IT’S NO EXCUSE! 20 years later he is somehow MORE responsible to run a country? He’s the one who voted for term limits year after year in the 80’s and 90’s! The man is a hypocrite and he is much older which does not help things at all. Ron Paul is disgusting.
Blitzer: A healthy 30 year old man decides to go without insurance, but develops a serious and prolonged illness. Who’s going to take care of him?
Paul: Well…well…well….we gotta get off this dependence on government…and…and…and…we gotta stop expecting the government to take care of us…and…err…umm…
Blitzer: But who’s going to pay the bills of this 30 year old man who decided not to purchase insurance???
Paul: Well….the church will take of him. His neighbors will take care of him. Like they did in the old days.
At a campaign stop, Ron Paul told breast cancer survivor Danielle Lin that insurance companies should not be required to offer coverage to people who are already sick.
“It’s sort of like me living on the Gulf Coast, not buying insurance until I see the hurricane,” said Paul, whose Galveston-based district was devastated by a hurricane in 2008. “Insurance is supposed to measure risk.”
The response left Lin in tears. While her insurance covered her treatment, she said, several of her friends were not so fortunate.
“I watched three friends die because they didn’t have insurance,” said Lin, a registered Democrat who is looking for a Republican candidate to support this time.
“Nobody can afford private insurance, nobody can. And they’re dead.”
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 neighborhoods. The political system demands white integration, while allowing black segregation.
Employee rights are said to be valid when employers pressure employees into sexual activity. Why don’t they quit once the so-called harassment starts? Obviously the morals of the harasser cannot be defended, but how can the harassee escape some responsibility for the problem? Seeking protection under civil rights legislation is hardly acceptable.
Ron Paul, from his 1987 book, Freedom Under Siege.
Ron Paul is the perfect candidate for the bigots in this country. He is not like the racists who paraded in white sheets or the David Dukes who stated their allegiance to the ideas of Hitler. No, he is the affable avuncular relative with a twinkle in his eye and voice that doesn’t ever sound shrill, but more like that of your kindly and occasionally crotchety uncle. He doesn’t have to wear an armband or use a stretched arm salute, and you can be sure he regrets the revelation of the earlier hate writings in his newsletters.
Ed Koch about Ron Paul.
Well, the newsletters were written, you know, a long time ago. And I wrote a certain portion of them. I would write the economics. So a lot of what you just mentioned… his would be material that I would turn in, and it would become part of the letter. But there were many times when I didn’t edit the whole letter, and things got put in. And I didn’t even really become aware of the details of that until many years later when somebody else called and said, you know what was in it? But these were sentences that were put in, a total of eight or ten sentences, and it was bad stuff. It wasn’t a reflection of my views at all. So it got in the letter, I thought it was terrible, it was tragic, you know and I had some responsibility for it, because name went on the letter. But I was not an editor. I’m like a publisher. And if you think of publishers of newspapers, once in a while they get pretty junky stuff in newspapers. And they have to say that this is not the position of that newspaper, and this is certainly the case. But I actually put a type of a newsletter out, it was a freedom report, investment, survival report — every month since 1976. So this is probably ten sentences out of 10,000 pages, for all I know. I think it’s bad that happened but I disavowed all these views, and people who know me best, people of my district, have heard these stories for years and years, and they know they weren’t a reflection of anything I believed in, and it never hurt me politically. Right now, I think it’s the same case, too. People are desperate to find something.
If I were in Congress in 1996, I would have voted for the Defense of Marriage Act, which used Congress’s constitutional authority to define what official state documents other states have to recognize under the Full Faith and Credit Clause, to ensure that no state would be forced to recognize a “same sex” marriage license issued in another state. This Congress, I was an original cosponsor of the Marriage Protection Act, HR 3313, that removes challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act from federal courts’ jurisdiction. If I were a member of the Texas legislature, I would do all I could to oppose any attempt by rogue judges to impose a new definition of marriage on the people of my state.
