Ron Paul Launches Nationwide Grassroots Campaign to Stop Debt Ceiling Betrayal

2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has launched a major effort to mobilize grassroots opposition to a deal on the debt ceiling that is rumored to be in the works between the Obama administration and House Republican leaders.

“The fact is, Republicans were put back in power during the last election to stop the runaway spending in Washington, D.C.—not to cut ‘deals’ that increase taxes and spending,” said Paul.

“If Republicans cave on their Tea Party mandate now, I believe they will pay a severe price at the ballot box in 2012, and I also think that President Obama believes the same. That is why he is pushing for this deal, but Republicans should not fall for it.”

Congressman Paul is leading the nationwide push urging people to contact Congress and tell them not to go for the purported deal. The effort began over the weekend by Paul contacting hundreds of thousands of supporters from his email list, and is expanding this morning with millions being contacted via email and social media. By late Monday there will be internet advertising up, and radio and TV ads are planned for later this week.

“Nothing is more important than mobilizing a grassroots army to stop this sellout of conservative principles by the Washington establishment of both parties. And it is vital that Congress hears from the people, loud and clear, that they cannot support more of the same reckless spending and government overreach they were sent to Washington to end,” continued Paul.

“We may be just days away from a betrayal of the voters’ trust, and we could end up with no balanced budget amendment and no real spending cuts, and a deal that puts an even greater burden on the American taxpayers. But I refuse to stand by without fighting it.”

    with this debate on the debt limit crisis is this so the politicians show us that they are finally going to work for this salary they have been earning? will they side with the American people or will they just keep shoveling more b.s into our ears and eyes? thank god our news is trying to find Casey to take off the real news of our Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, negotiating a 5 trillion dollar deal with India to fix their infrastructure over the next 5 years. What about ours, maybe we should fix some more roads and have us worry some more about spending the $400 a month it takes us to fill our gas tanks to got to work. But lets not work towards hydrogen or we will soon be buying from overseas again because Europe is light years ahead of us. Maybe one of these days we might have a factory and actually produce something we can sell for profit, but lets pay farmers not produce goods off their lands. Lets not also talk about us putting 30 million barrels of oil into circulation, thank god we will also be paying more to replace it if we can. Everyone better run out and buy some toilet paper as that will soon be worth more than the dollar, they say if we default it will have devastating effects no one will loan us money blah blah blah, we keep pissing them off by blowing them up they won’t talk with us dah. I wish some one could snatch their eyes out, stick them in their butt to show them what an ass they are making.
