Ron Paul Drives Past Sign Wave on Way to Debate

No Alternative

Dear Supporter,

It's no secret the American people are desperately looking for a conservative alternative to Mitt Romney.

And the truth is, it's NOT Rick Santorum.

Just like the other counterfeit conservatives that have risen in the polls over the past few months, once the American people find out Rick Santorum is just another Big Government, big spending Republican, I'm confident his campaign will come crashing down, as well.

But Super Tuesday is less than two weeks away.

So time is running out to get the truth about Rick Santorum's statist record to the voters.

As you may have seen, my campaign has put together a new ad highlighting Rick Santorum's Big Government record.
Can I count on you to make a generous donation to help run this ad in several states before voters go to the polls on Super Tuesday?

With our nation now over $15 TRILLION in the hole, you and I can't sit idly by and watch the American people be fooled by another fake conservative.

It's up to us to make sure voters learn the truth about Rick Santorum.

Once they do - and also discover my track record of standing up for free markets, sound money, individual liberty, and constitutional principles for over 30 years - that will be the springboard needed to help put us over the top.

Unlike my opponents, I've never flip-flopped on the issues.

I've never voted for a tax increase. I've never voted for an unbalanced budget. And I've never voted to raise the debt ceiling.

During my time in Congress, I've been true to the American people and to my oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States.

But with 10 states set to vote in less than two weeks, it's vital I get my message out IMMEDIATELY to the voters.

So please, make the most generous contribution you possibly can afford to help me expose Rick Santorum's Big Government, big spending record.

Once Rick Santorum is exposed, voters will realize I'm the only real conservative in this race.

Time is running out, so please donate immediately.

Together, you and I can Restore America NOW!

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

P.S. Super Tuesday is less than two weeks away.

That means time is running out to tell voters the truth about Rick Santorum's Big Government, big spending record.

So can I count on you to help me run this ad in several states to expose Rick Santorum as a counterfeit conservative?

Your generous donation will help show voters that I am the only true constitutional conservative left in this race.


Washington Post Defends Santorum Against Paul

-Tom Woods
The Washington Post calls Ron Paul’s anti-Santorum ad “misleading.” Why? The ad says Santorum voted to send billions of dollars to dictators. While this is technically true, admits the Post, Santorum had good reason to send that money to those dictators!

Ron Paul CNN/Arizona Debate Highlights

ABC blacks out Ron Paul in debate analysis

-Bill Anderson
I guess Ron Paul was not at the debate last night

While I did not watch the Republican debate Wednesday night, nonetheless I was under the impression that Ron Paul was one of the participants, but I must have been wrong. Why? In this article from ABC News, the writer does not even mention Dr. Paul's name at all.

Only Paul's Plan Will Reduce the Deficit

-Washington Post
The national debt is likely to balloon under tax policies championed by three of the four major Republican candidates for president, according to an independent analysis of tax and spending proposals so far offered by the candidates.

The lone exception is Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who would pair a big reduction in tax rates with even bigger cuts in government services, slicing about $2 trillion from future borrowing.

Tom Woods discusses the Ron Paul Revolution

-Antiwar Radio
Thomas E. Woods, author of Rollback: Repealing Big Government Before the Coming Fiscal Collapse, discusses the Ron Paul revolution and why there are very few popular American uprisings specifically against foreign policy and empire; the “26 Things Non-Paul Voters Are Basically Saying;” the left-right political realignment, putting aside jingoistic nationalism and uniting around a moral foreign policy; and why Ron Paul’s campaign staff should get him into more town hall meetings, where his message really resonates.

Ron Paul: The choice of the troops

-Washington Times
WASHINGTON—Anyone who believes that Ron Paul's foreign policy is a sign of weakness, or that he does not have the courage to defend this country, should talk to Dr. Paul's military supporters. More than 1,500 supporters showed up at the march on the White House in support of Congressman Paul.

Among them were over 400 active duty or retired military members participating in the rally. None of them were timid about their support of the only military veteran in the race for the Presidency.

“We support him because he supports us!” exclaimed Corporal Jesse Thorton in his speech supporting Ron Paul. Echoing the theme of the march, Thorton also said, “Ron Paul is the choice of the troops.”

Santorum campaign suggests Mitt Romney may have done deal to make Ron Paul his running mate

-Daily Mail
After tonight's debate, in which Ron Paul and Mitt Romney repeatedly attacked Rick Santorum over his 16-year record in Congress, the former US Senator for Pennsylvania hinted that something nefarious was going on.

"You have to ask Congressman Paul and Governor Romney what they've got going together," Santorum told reporters in the spin room in Mesa, Arizona. "Their commercials look a lot alike and so do their attacks."

Santorum's top strategist John Brabender went even further, charging that the two men had "joined forces" and were coordinating attacks against his man

"Clearly there's a tag team strategy between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney. For all I know, Mitt Romney might be considering Ron Paul as his running mate. Clearly there is now an alliance between those two and you saw that certainly in the debate."

U.S. resumes drone strikes in Pakistan

-Antiwar News
The resumption of US drone strikes against Pakistan’s tribal areas last month came amid rumors of ongoing negotiations with the Pakistani government, and a putative deal to keep the strikes to a minimum.

This appears not to have been the case, however, as new reports indicate that the US simply “informed” Pakistan that the drones would restart, and did so despite objections from the Pakistani government.

Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei: We Will Never Seek Nuclear Weapons

-Antiwar News
Iran will never seek nuclear weapons, declared Iran’s Supreme Leader in Tehran on Wednesday in a meeting with the director and officials of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.

“The Iranian nation has never pursued and will never pursue nuclear weapons,” said Ayatollah Khamenei amid calls from some hawks in Israel and the U.S. to attack Iran for its nuclear enrichment, which they allege is for nuclear weapons.

U.S. may arm Syrian rebels

-Antiwar News
Yesterday’s reports that the US was ruling out arming Syrian rebels were apparently untrue, as the US State Department says today that the option is being kept open, and that “if we can’t get Assad to yield to the pressure that we are all bringing to bear” the arms option would be considered.
