Forum Post: Scan of a RonPaul Newsletter : Scary Man

Posted 2 years ago on Dec. 24, 2011, 1:08 p.m. EST by Rico (3027)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

I went off looking for one of the infamous RonPaul newsletters and found one at http://graphics.thomsonreuters.com/11/12/Solicitation2.pdf . The signature appears to match the one at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ron_Paul_signature.svg , and the letter was presumably vetted by Reuters, so I suspect it's the real deal.

RonPaul denies having written these newsletters, but they do carry his signature, and he's never filed a suite against anyone speaking out in his name without his approval. Furthermore, he acknowledges these investment newsletters in the video at http://youtu.be/eW755u5460A.

RonPaul has learned how to sound more politically correct, but underneath the political correctness is a very scary man.

Mr. P. The unprincipled, principled man.

He honestly doesn't remember his past?

Sounds like Alzheimers, setting in.

We don't need another Reagan

Please don't slander President Reagan thus. There is no comparison.

[-] 2 points by Jehovah (113) 2 years ago

Reagan was a veritable paragon of virtue.

He tripled the national debt, doubled the defense budget, lowered taxes on the rich and raised them on everyone else. He traded weapons to Iran for hostages, and used the proceeds to fund the attempted CIA overthrow of the popular democratic government of Nicaragua. He pushed deregulation of industries including banking, which led directly to the Savings and Loan Crisis. He didn't end the Cold War, as that was effectively ended during the Nixon administration with detente. Reagan embroiled the US in Afghanistan, funding training and arming Osama Bin Laden.

Quite the legacy ...

No need to slander, as he had little good to offer.

The first completely corporate President.

Suffering from Alzheimers, to boot.

No matter what else folks say about Reagan, he never rose to the level of rhetoric seen in these newsletters published by Ron Paul. Nothing even comes close.

"Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem."

Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address

Not much irony in the President of the US saying HE is the problem.

Well they do their best to make the government look bad when in there

Ron Paul is an awful candidate

http://edition.cnn.com/2011/12/26/opinion/frum-ron-paul-newsletters/index.html

http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/12/22/9633112-how-air-conditioning-prostitution-and-raw-milk-could-give-ron-paul-problems

we need regulation. Regulation protect the citizens. ADA protects a group of people just like any other discrimination law. Drugs are dangerous. Alcohol is legal but it doesn't mean we should legalize every other drug. welfare helps the middle and lower classes.

he wants to prosecute CIA and to no air conditioning for troops (as a way to bring them home) as if they decided on their own and not because of orders.

Who gets more benefit from deregulation, no social security, medicare, medicaid, repealing obamacare (this is something I partially agree though), repealing ADA and every other shenanigan? You guessed it. The one per cent. Who? The ONE per CENT. Again? The 1%. You mean to say that under Ron Paul corporations are free to do whatever with no regulation ? Yes! Social Security contribution? Gone! Medicare? No more! And don't forget you pay ZERO taxes. For real? ZERO TAXES!!!! Hell, Ron Paul offers heaven to the 1%!!!!!!

http://www.ronpaul2012.com/the-issues/taxes/

Where does this heaven comes from? We prosecute CIA for war crimes. Those morons got us in more wars than we care to remember. Who cares about intelligence. We dont need that! We pull out of everywhere in the world. We send our soldiers to...to....to.......home. To work as unemployed because the military also faces lay offs.

http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/11/22/8962737-navy-to-lay-off-3000-mid-career-sailors

And dont forget the racist remarks he doesn't remember anything about. Yes it was written by a Bush aide BUT Ron Paul just doesn't remember and that's a fact.

So if you stop and think it for a second. Ron Paul is an idiot. And only people that don't read support him. His presidency would be a disaster.

Convict code is also shared by KKK. Mess with people's heads, outright deny doing what is overwhelmingly obvious you did.

Exactly what is racist about this letter? Let's see.. The former CEO of Goldman Sachs (former sec. of treasury Paulson) goes to congress demanding $800 billion dollars to "save" the international banking industry with a proposal 3 pages long and no provision for tracking where the money goes and Congress rubber stamps it. The same banks who get the money invest it in treasury bonds at interest paid by US taxpayers, pocket the interest and pay back only the principle. Given a conservative rate of 2.5% that's $25 BILLION dollars per year!! A free gift for those that you are supposed to ne protesting! If the occupy movement falls into a left vs. right p^ssing match the whole idea will go nowhere fast. The commenters below are rooting for the wrong team.

[-] 1 points by Rico (3027) 2 years ago

Who said anything about racism ? I didn't and neither did any comment in the chain before yours.

do you seriously think this is real? umm..

[-] 2 points by Rico (3027) 2 years ago

Reputable news organization (Reuters), signature looks proper, and the video of Ron Paul talking appears to indicate he did publish such newsletters. Furthermore, we do have video of Ron as the featured guest speaker at the John Birch Society's 50th anniversary (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_S9Ogyu5DDY), and the language of the newsletters and the language of the JBS does sound similar (most foilks here are too young to remember the real JBS... it has also manufactured a new and improved external face).

Bottom line.... I have done about as much checking as any individual citizen can, and all indications suggest this material is real.

[-] 2 points by shooz (26675) 2 years ago

Yep, I remember reading some of these letters, back in the day.

They are very real. Racists have been gushing over this man for years.

It doesn't look exact, but then people change sigs as time goes on. Definatly a paranoid guy though. And if these newsletters weren't written by him, he still endorsed them as his point of view, and profitted off them. Yet another point to show OWS supporters of him that they don't know who they are voting for.

[-] 1 points by Rico (3027) 2 years ago

Has anyone else noticed that he's never produced any newsletters? He does acknowledge he was publishing newsletters in the video, after all, so where are the ones he did endorse ? I haven't seen any.

Frankly, I think we're simply watching a man who has used this material to run for Congress in the past but who now understands it's too extremist for a national candidate and has decided to disavow what he said in the past; "Don't listen to what I said when representing a white majority racist district in Congress, only listen to what I say now when running for national office."

I am astonished people listen to this guy. At worst he's a racist nut. At best, he's just another politician who changes his message to whatever he thinks will get him elected at the time.

[-] 2 points by necropaulis (491) 2 years ago

That last sentence was right on. Politicians will say whatever they need to get somewhere.

[-] 0 points by necropaulis (491) 2 years ago

Right on. These guys will say anything. While he may not have produced them, just published, he still endorses them by accepting the money from them, putting his name on them, and not suing those producing them.
