Another great letter from Ron Paul

Here is a great letter sent out to Ron Paul supporters.

If I have time later I will share with you my experience last night with the Newt Gingrich campaign when they called my school conducting a poll for his campaign and my subsequent attempt to get them to vote for Ron Paul in 2008 using their own campaign rhetoric to persuade them.

It was interesting indeed.

Alright, the following is letter from Dr. Paul.

August 22, 2007

Not all the media are biased.  A local newspaper in New Hampshire
reported on an annual GOP bbq in the town of Hollis.  It could be called
“the Ron Paul show,” they said, since the far bigger crowd that usual
consisted mostly of our supporters.  One volunteer even rented an
airplane and flew a wonderful sign around the sky.  What great, creative,
self-starting people I’m meeting, at every stop, all of them united by a
love of America and American freedom.

Politics is usually about division.  But this campaign is just the
opposite.  Not only are our volunteers a bunch of happy warriors, but
they also practice the virtues of tolerance and peace, just as they want
the nation to do.

The other day, the state chairman of an opposing campaign (not in New
Hampshire
!), angrily tore a sign out of one of our supporter’s hands and
trashed it.  Different people with different beliefs might have
responded differently.  But our people, though they’d been standing in the
rain all day, applied the Golden Rule.  It’s because of quiet heroes
that I know we can change this country.

A reporter in New Hampshire told me this story about Florida:  she had
seen the same three supporters working every day passing out our
literature, and so decided to interview them.  She was startled to discover
that one was a Republican, one was a Democrat, and one was an
Independent.  But I wasn’t.

Freedom brings us all together. We can all agree on leaving people
alone to plan and live their own lives, rather than trying to force them to
obey at the point of a gun, as runaway government does.  Instead of
clawing at each other via the warfare-welfare state, people under
liberty can cooperate in a unity of diversity.

There is no need to use government to threaten others who have
different standards, or to be threatened by them.  Looking to our Founders,
our traditions, and the Constitution, we can build, in peaceful
cooperation, a free and prosperous society.

At a talk show in Nashua, New Hampshire, the host asked me about the
fair tax.  Well, I agree on getting rid of the IRS, I told her, but I
want to replace it with nothing, not another tax.  But let’s not forget
the inflation tax, I said.

This was something she had never considered, but after I talked about
the depreciation of our dollar by the Federal Reserve, its creation of
artificial booms and busts, and its bailouts of the big banks and Wall
Street firms, to the detriment of the average person, she loved it. 
That is another tax, she agreed, a hidden and particularly vicious tax.

They try to tell us that the money issue is boring or irrelevant.  In
fact, it is the very pith of our social lives, and morally,
Constitutionally, and economically, the central bank is a disaster. Thanks to the
work of this movement, Americans are starting to understand what has
been hidden from them for so long:  that we have a right to sound and
honest money, not to a dollar debauched for the special interests.

Unconstitutional government has created a war crisis, a financial
crisis, a dollar crisis, and a freedom crisis.  But we don’t have to take
it.  We don’t have to passively accept more dead soldiers, a lower
standard of living, rising prices, a national ID, eavesdropping on our
emails and phone calls, and all the rest.

We can return to first principles, and build the brightest, most
brilliant future any people on earth has ever aspired to.  Help me teach
this lesson.  Help me campaign all over this country, in cooperation with
our huge and growing volunteer army.  Help me show that change is not
only possible, but also essential.  Please, make your most generous
contribution (https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate/) to this campaign for
a Constitutional presidency worthy of our people. Invest in freedom: 
for yourself, for your family, for your future.

Sincerely,

Ron
