What follows is a heartfelt email I recently sent to some family and friends. Do with it as you will.

If you missed the GOP debate last night, click here to see a video of Ron Paul’s answers. A couple other notes:
- Ron Paul’s recently-released fiscal “PLAN TO RESTORE AMERICA” includes: cutting spending by $1 trillion in the first year; a balanced budget by year three; lowers the corporate tax rate to 15%, making America competitive in the global market; and eliminates 5 cabinet departments. Here’s the whole plan.
- Believe it or not, Rush Limbaugh endorsed Paul’s fiscal plan. Quote: “Ron Paul has a good idea… fooling around the margins isn’t going to get it done… genuine big spending cuts are the only thing that is going to bring us back”
- Political donors have to declare who they work for. The top three employers of Ron Paul contributors are: US Air Force, US Army, & US Navy.
- Pew Research has completed a study that shows that the biased mainstream media really has been blacking out coverage of Ron Paul’s campaign, despite his results in various straw polls. My favorite headline: “Michelle Bachman wins Ames Straw Poll, Tim Pawlenty Finishes Third.” Politico (oops!) forgot to mention that Ron Paul came in second, nearly beating Bachman in her native state.
So why am I documenting all this? I promise I won’t bombard you with political stuff, but I believe that Ron Paul is the only candidate who truly supports a limited federal government and the constitution that’s supposed to limit it. I also believe that this election is the last one that could correct the course of our country. If it doesn’t happen now, it’s not going to happen.
And I have put my money where my mouth is. For the first time in my life, I changed my voter registration from independent to republican so I can vote in the primary next year. And I made a contribution, also for the first time, to Paul’s political campaign.
Here’s his campaign website.
Check it out. His positions on the issues are easy to find and clearly spelled out. You may discover that he’s not such a wacko after all. You might even want to contribute to his one-day campaign today to raise money.
Or not. I’m just sharing information, not twisting arms.
P.S. Feel free to share this.
