    I have never voted because I have never agreed with what a president elect has had to say, but in the up coming election, Ron Paul will have my vote…

    Hello Ron,

    I watched the debate tonight and was simply horrified by the way you were treated onstage by the sophomoric flunkies in the crowd. The negligence of history has been a problem from the beginning of the race. The other candidates have touted their ability to “tell the truth,” no matter how sour it is to the American tongue. However, it was you who seemed to confront the most terrible truth of all. In supporting Afghanistan’s war against the Soviet Union, we indeed created the extremism that resulted in 9/11. I wish more of the American people saw both this politically inconvenient reality and the fortitude with which you confronted it during the debate tonight.

    On a separate note, I want to address something many of your supporters have said over the course of the debate: your lack of air-time during the debates, and in the media more generally. I am not sure what exactly is going on with this, but I think you need to put a stop to it somehow. During the debates, several of the candidates have confronted the questioners about certain things. For example, Newt Gingrich has at several points encouraged the moderators and questioners not to induce infighting among the candidates. The debate seems to address questions in a way that makes candidates align themselves with either Perry or Romney. You should address this. You should address that there is a severe inequality in the time allotted for each candidate to speak. This is something you can do DURING the actual debate. It will add fire and popularity to your cause. Your passivity and kindness is refreshing among the over-aggressive (and sometimes outright mean) candidates. However, I think a brief departure from this could jolt your campaign, and perhaps level the playing field a bit.

    I want to help. I believe in your message about limited government, limited powers of the executive branch, the importance of the Constitution, and most especially, the idiocy of foreign wars and occupations, at least ones which make little or no contributions to our national security. You have my email, please let me know how else I can help. I know you have campaign advisers. I know you have many supporters, but as of now, most Americans, myself included, believe it is not enough. That said, there is a lot of time between now and the election. I hope and pray that we can win. Keep up the good work Ron, you are an inspiration to all of us.

    Steve, Leominster Massachusetts

    I am soooooo pist at how they focused mostly on the other candidates and ignored Ron Paul. Those jackasses that booood Ron Paul on our 911 issues being our fault were probably staged there to make him look bad. They don’t realize this man has been preaching the same “truth” for 30 years and it turns out he was right. “Stupid Americans” can’t read between the lines and figure it out. I thought the debates looked like a Jerry Springer Show between Mit Wit and Ricky boy. We need truth, even if it hurts and Ron is the man to bring it to us. If Ron Paul does not get elected as President to lead us from this shithole that our Gov. created I will move to another country and let you stupid amercans rot in your own shit. Im so sorry Ron for the bad language but I’m so mad at all the ignorance this country represents. I will vote for you and pray to GOD my vote counts to get you elected. Thank you Ron for being a true American and speaking the truth. I know you are favored in GODS eyes for that and know you are blessed by him. God Bless you and all who seek your truth. Sincerely Yours, Ray Lindsey
