Ron Paul: A Veteran’s Best Friend





Today, the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign released its latest television ad . The 60-second spot entitled ‘A Veteran’s Best Friend’ highlights Paul’s military service and unrivaled commitment to veterans.

“Dr. Paul has a long record in Congress as a strong advocate for veterans and issues important to them, particularly in making sure that they receive recognition for the sacrifices they’ve made in service to our country,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

The ad is the first in what will be a $1 million television push over the next few weeks. It is scheduled to air nationally on the FOX News Channel during debate coverage and run heavily in New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada, and South Carolina on broadcast and cable. At this stage in the primary election cycle few other campaigns have the ability to make an ad push of this scale, putting the Paul campaign in elite company.

Regarding the campaign’s ad push Benton went on to say:

“Our campaign is seeing growing momentum now and is doing this ad blitz to cement ourselves in the top tier. We’ve seen Dr. Paul’s poll numbers steadily increase, with strong showings in recent New Hampshire and Iowa polls, as well as strong head-to-head showings versus President Obama.”

As a presidential candidate, Congressman Paul has garnered more donations from active-duty military than all of the other Republican presidential candidates combined, and more than President Obama as well. Paul’s consistent adherence to Constitutional principles regarding American foreign policy, and his calls to bring the troops home in order to defend the country as opposed to spending trillions policing and nation-building in foreign lands has gained him wide support among veterans and active military alike.

  10. Anybody else feel like last night's debate was more like a pissing match between two men instead of a debate shared by all 9 on stage? Time and time again the questions are given to the select few. Let ALL answer the same amount. Let ALL get their message out. Not just Romney, Perry or even Paul! You see it more and more how the media attempts to put blinders on people in order to push their own views. Give them all a fair shake and let US decide. Fox, CNN, NBC it's not your country, its ours!

  14. RON PAUL WAS A DUMBFUCK, EVEN BACK IN 1988. He wants to destroy income tax (40% of the national budget), he wants to end FBI, CIA, Department of Education, Women's Rights, Any Kind of Healthcare Assistance (He Lies, VA Hospitals Have AMAZING Healthcare), Food Assistance, He's Anti-Gay Rights (Code Word: Leave It To The States, When It's FEDERAL BUSINESS as a CIVIL RIGHT), He's RACIST ("Blacks Steal Because They Run So Fast, etc."), RON PAUL IS A BIGOT AND A DUMBFUCK.

  15. BULLSHIT. He said VA hospitals don't work because in his mind, "ANYTHING" the government does, doesn't work. He's a liar and a scumbag.
