Ron Paul was, until last year a Congressman from Texas. He was also a presidential candidate in the last two elections. He has written several books regarding the direction of this country and importance of individual liberty and the rule of law.

I think he would have been had he been given the chance. I suggest you do a youtube search for some of last years presidential debates to hear what he as to say.

I can't find the same articles as before, and I try to find unbiased sources who just post the news (which is rare, I know), but this tells me a lot about Ron that I don't like. People can try to cover stuff up, but once a racist, always a little racist. [link] Sorry, but he won't have my vote.

Since the chances of someone going outside their comfort zone in an effort to reevaluate their world view, where there is a possibility of learning they're wrong are slim - I'll help you out:

"In the long run, the only way racism can be overcome is through the philosophy of individualism. Which I have promoted throughout my life. Our rights come to us NOT because we belong to some group but our rights come to us as individuals. And it is as individuals that we should judge one another. Racism is a particularly odious form of collectivism whereby individuals are treated not on their merits but on the basis of group identity. Nothing in my political philosophy, which is the exact opposite of the racial totalitarianism of the twentieth century, gives aid or comfort to such thinking.To the contrary, my philosophy or individualism is the most radical intellectual challenge to racism ever posed."

-Ron Paul
The Revolution - A Manifesto
p. 64


"We should not think in terms of whites, blacks, Hispanics or and other such groups. That kind of thinking only divides us. The only us versus them thinking we might indulge is the people, all the people versus the government, which loots and lies to us all, threatens liberties and shreds out Constitution. That's not a black or white issue. That's an American issue."

-Ron Paul
The Revolution - A Manifesto
p. 66


Hardly seems like the philosophy of a racist now does it? If it does perhaps you're one of those that choose to intentional misinterpret his views on the subject.

I'd suggest that before you make up your mind about Dr. Paul you read his book entitled "The Revolution a Manifesto". He goes into great detail in regards to his views on race. Because Dr. Paul does not believe in or support the concept of "group rights" many people choose to intentional misinterpret his views on the subject, labeling him as racist.

Meanwhile he's been backed by white supremacists? No thanks.

Sure. It's much easier to rely on second/third hand accounts and to assume guilt through association than it is to go to a bookstore, purchase a book (where the topic is fully discussed), read it and then form your own opinion...
