Ron Paul Reaches Out to Portsmouth Voters

View Larger Map

Ron Paul met with several Portsmouth voters Friday morning just three days before the first GOP debate in New Hampshire. He shared his vision for helping small business, restarting the economy and scaling down the U.S. government’s ruinous foreign policy.

Date: 06/10/2011


Ron Paul: If we make a mistake in Texas, you wouldn’t necessarily have to suffer from it. But if we mess up in Washington—which they do constantly—everybody suffers. And that’s why centralizing the government is something—[unintelligible].

Ken Smith [co-owner of Mainely-New Hampshire]: … the federal government could do to back off us and give us a chance?

Ron Paul: What about if we took a position that we would freeze the regulatory system, give you a break? No new regulations. I mean, just think if we didn’t expand the Federal Register for three, four, five years. No more regulations, and the only thing we could do to improve your life would be to repeal a couple of those regulations.

John Fincher of Dover: It’s refreshing to actually have somebody that looks at the Constitution as something other than a moldy piece of paper. He’s taken, a couple of times in his career, an oath to defend the Constitution, and the guy has stepped up and put his money where his mouth is. He walks the walk. That’s why I support him.

Dave Dawley of Rye: He’s a conservative American, the practice, the principles we all are concerned about, more particularly in New Hampshire—the Constitution, the ethics, the honor, the trust. We trust him, when elected, to do the right thing, which I find would be very refreshing.

Francesca Marconi Fernald [owner Geno’s Chowder and Sandwich Shop]: The thing about New Hampshire politics is, you get to see the people, you get to shake their hand, you get to see what they look like, how they act, interact with other people as well. We’re not a huge state where you never get near anyone. In New Hampshire, we like to get near you, we like to see how your handshake is, look you in the eye, and check him out.

Kevin Kervick of Portsmouth: I also believe that he’s been extremely consistent, and—we were talking about earlier this morning that he’s a man of integrity in a profession that you don’t often see a lot of integrity. So that really attracts me to him. But the other thing that I’m really excited about is, I think he’s commandeering the Liberty Movement that is really doing a lot to really capture the hearts and minds of the youth of America.

Ron Paul: I would say that maybe it’s a little slower than last time, but it’s still not unreasonable to think that people are still looking at their candidates. One thing for sure is that the People are pretty darn upset, and they are looking. Because there’s so many problems, so many questions, I think they’re scrutinizing all the candidates a lot more on how the individual is going to solve the problem. Is it going to be all the same old promises again, the same old type of politician, the same old status quo? And I think that’s why they’re a bit frustrated, and I think that’s where I stand out differently, because I don’t represent the status quo in any way.

  • It is much better, dumbass. Take off all of those regulations and then we’ll see all of you paultards run and scatter in desperation. fuck you

  • Nice. That is what everybody needs to do for him to have a chance. In my opinion both parties are corrupt and the only chance he has will come from overwhelming support.

  • The exact message I’ve been giving family/friends. I think both parties should rot in hell, but I register repub so I can vote for RP.

  • yup much better where we are now and you just keep on with that.

  • innocent until proven guilty fool. Prove he’s guilty of being a freemason. The Freemasons are the status quo. Why do you think the government has been consistently destroying this nation? It’s because they are the status quo. Presidency doesn’t matter neither do the elections. But THIS man challenges the system. Now what’s your case? Besides obvious ignorance

    If people only listened to what Ron Paul has to say he would win hands down. Too many people see him labeled as a republican and ignore what he has to say.
