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.

You were only repeating shit you heard other people say because you really don't know anything about the political arena. Ron Paul is older than John McCain...formulate your own opinions. Dickfaces.

  13. To me Congressman Ron Paul has already won the 2012 nomination to the Republican party because the party has moved closer to Ron Paul's ideas of a free economy, smaller government, fiscal conservatism, and liberty, prosperity and justice for all. Dr. Paul, I thank you for your service to this country and your ideas that will lead all Americans to a greater freedom in this fine country. God bless you.

  20. I voted for Ron Paul in the last election here in CA. He was a legitimate write in candidate. That’s the only time I have voted for a presidential candidate. He is the first person I thought was worthy of my vote. He can count on my vote this time around. He is a man of the people. He’s risking his life running with his agenda for us. Being an honest threat to the status quo and a true patriot is dangerous work. He needs our support. Stand up and vote for Ron Paul. United we stand!
