Ron Paul Can’t Withstand The Scrutiny Of Being A Front-runner
Why do Paulbots lash out and attack so viciously every time someone says something negative about their candidate? Perhaps they need to do everything they can to prevent scrutiny. The fact is he would never stand up to it were he taken seriously as a potential nominee. If he does want to be taken seriously, it's time for him to answer for this garbage.
Here, according to Reason, was a potential Republican nominee for president who had for whatever rationale acquiesced to having a newsletter sent out under his name that used the most vile of racist language.
To wit, this from the May 22nd Dallas Morning News in 1996:Dr. Ron Paul, a Republican congressional candidate from Texas, wrote in his political newsletter in 1992 that 95 percent of the black men in Washington, D.C., are "semi-criminal or entirely criminal."
And this, from the Houston Chronicle on May 23, 1996:…we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.
And this from the Austin American-Statesman, also on May 23, 1996:Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions.
