Is Ron Paul racist

Ever since Ron Paul jumped ahead in the Iowa polls, the attacks began -- just like clockwork. First, most of the mainstream media tried to act like his lead wasn't true. Then some admitted it only with allegations he published newsletters which included racist remarks.

The problem with the Ron Paul haters is that they are slow learners. They don't understand the more he gets attacked the stronger his campaign gets as his grassroots supporters rise up even higher to meet the challenge. Think about it, last time a huge blimp came on the scene in his support. (Watch this video to see the huge blimp Ron Paul supporters flew around the states:Ron Paul, has his time come?) What will his supporters do if this continues?

With a group of Ron Paul supporters who follow the words, "Let it not be said we did nothing." Word to you haters, "Let it not be said you weren't warned."

I didn't think the newsletters carried any weight, because they didn't even sound like him! Lets use some common sense and break it down. Ron Paul is the most consistent candidate. Dr. Paul is and has not been a flip-flopper. So, why would something so out of character, out of sync with his pattern of behavior or words be isolated from 20 years ago? Wouldn't we find more of the same somewhere?

Like I said to someone who wrote an article about it, "Is that all you've got?"

What a lame attempt to discredit and ruin Ron Paul. With his army of support you better have bigger ammo than that to take down his campaign, because frankly he's got quite a r3VOLution behind him.

There's a new video put together by MoxNews.com with clip after clip of black people talking about their feelings about whether Ron Paul is racist or not.

One of my favorite quotes from the video is, "Do you want to talk about something said in papers 20 years ago, that's fine, but to me that totally annihilates any claims of racism. But the thing is, even if he did harbor negative feelings of bias or racist feelings...to be honest, I may have a few feelings about certain groups of people too."

He goes on to say, "I don't choose to, and it might not be the most sophisticated thing, but everybody has some group feelings whether they'll admit it or not to an extent-- anybody who's honest."

He finishes his point with the perfect ending when he says, "I don't particularly care if Ron Paul likes people my height, people my color, people my shape, people my sexuality, people in my income status...I don't really care, I just care whether he can do his (expletive) job."

So, there you have it. Please watch the video and check out some of the comments on YouTube--here's a few:

~Black and I support Ron Paul let's get him in office.drizza19

~keep on spreading the message my brotha. I am trying to get the hispanics behind ron paul and most of my cousins are on board.dragnet53

~I'm black and I think Ron Paul is not a racist T81591

Now the rest is up to you--after watching the video, you need to decide if you're going to listen to the attacks or not. But remember, some of the most famous, influential, difference makers were surrounded by haters. I get the feeling Ron Paul is just fine with his haters because he knows it doesn't matter who hates him or even if he makes it all the way.

Ron Paul's mission is to spread the message of freedom. If he continues to educate people and open people's eyes to the truth then he is right where he belongs. Dr. Paul does not get his marching orders from the White House, neo cons, the media or those in corporate greed. I believe Ron Paul knows he gets his assignments straight from the One who will someday say, "Well done good and faithful servant."
