HOW can YOU help RON PAUL right here in VIRGINIA (or wherever you read this blog at!)

How can I help Ron Paul right here in Virginia or wherever you are (assuming you are not in Iowa and/or NH):

  • Buy a Iowa precinct where you can have the supervoters in that precinct be sent the Ron Paul Superbrochure!
  • Pledge to give money to the RP campaign on December 16, 2011 (Boston Tea Party anniversary)!
  • Make calls into Iowa for the campaign!
  • If you are an independent or Democrat voter, see this site for how to become a Blue Republican!  (Any voter can vote in the Virginia Republican Primary if they express an intent to vote for the winner in the general election)
  • If you are maxed out in giving to the RP campaign, go to the RevolutionSuperPAC site and give as much as you want!
  • If you have time, go to Iowa or NH and campaign for Paul!  Go to the Youth for Paul site for details!
  • Here is a site in regard to flyers for RP based on Pearl Harbor Day; see if you like this!
  • Buy your Amazon materials through the Daily Paul!
  • You can get for the price of postage some RP stickers but you need to put the bumper sticker on your car:  Go here!

I am sure there are many other things to do but this is a good list – thanks to the Daily Paul!  Pick one to do if you can!

    Well. I DID like this site until I saw you support RP. He is a crazy loon who doesn't care if Iran gets nukes. Wake up people!

      Well, as the Editor, I can say I am not a Ron Paul fan on a lot of his ideas. Sandy Sanders is our local Ron Paul enthusiast. I asked Sandy to write for Virginia Right! so that we could broaden and expand the coverage and perspective of this blog. We may not always agree with one another on everything, but if I simply wanted a second opinion exactly like mine, I would just write twice as often!

      I think Sandy does a fantastic job of broadening this blog. And I gave him absolute freedom to post as he wishes.

      Besides, without Sandy and the Ron Paul posts, we wouldn't have talk of Curling in Richmond – another Sandy passion!

      I look at it this way, Sandy's posts will either change your mind on Ron Paul, or confirm your beliefs.

      Either way, we try to provide something for everyone!

        Insanity in the interest of diversity. That's one way to go.

          While I agree with Paul on a lot of fiscal issues, I find myself at odds with him on social issues and foreign affairs. But that is not to say I believe he is incorrect. We have a Department of Defense, not a Dept. of Offense. We are nation building and sticking our noses in a lot of places we should not. The intent of the founders was for the Federal Government to DEFEND us. The part Paul and most Libertarians don't get is that sometimes, as the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Paul's non involvement is far too simplistic. If Iran has nukes, they have said they will wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. I believe them.

          So, is it a better defensive strategy to prevent that from happening in the first place? I say yes, Paul says no.

          Much of our foreign policy – before Obama – was reflective of the buildup to WWII. What if we had stopped Hitler in 1933 when the first Concentration Camp was opened?

          There probably would not have been a WWII. And Japan would not have attacked an America not focused on another large theater war to distract us.

          I am not sure Paul would have favored the US getting involved in Europe in 1941, but I am fairly certain that he would have favored war with Japan after December 7, 1941.

          But what if we had prevented Japan from attacking by not being engaged in a Euro-war?

          But politicians use that justification to meddle in a lot of places they should not. I think that is more Ron Paul's point. If it is not specifically in the constitution, we shouldn't be doing it.

          Call it naive, call it shortsighted, but it is not crazy.

          And I DO like the fiscal reasoning that Libertarians like Paul bring to the table. I think it makes the entire discussion that much better.

          Paul adheres to the letter of the Constitution. I disagree on his strict interpretation of Liberty on one hand, but I completely understand his point.

          We should have the freedom to do as we want if we are not harming others, but the freedom to do drugs too often infringes on other's freedom when a druggie breaks into a house to steal for a fix. And we live in a society where we, as humanity, are unable to sit and watch as a junkie overdoses. And treatment costs us all in tax dollars, even if the junkie wanted to die.

          Most of us draw a line on personal freedom. But Ron Paul is not wrong. We either have freedom, or not.

          The bits most see as crazy are actually personal Liberty taken to the ultimate degree. We have settled for something less than complete and absolute personal freedom, yet still consider ourselves free. Free enough, I suppose.

          Paul is not wrong about Liberty. But the truth is, most people can't handle complete freedom and some of us feel that our own freedom includes the freedom to step in and save someone from themselves.

          In the end, I can't defend a lot of Paul's positions. But that does not mean I don't understand them, or think they are crazy. At best, they are impractical and incompatible with our current world.

    I can understand why you are disappointed. RP's stance on foreign affairs makes us as weak as Obama's stance. Just ignore the Muslim Brotherhood and they will just stay where they are. Right!? And, they will slowly but steadily take over the world. The Muslim Brotherhood is all the Muslims (known terrorists and not ) rapped up in one "nice" package. They hate us and want us dead if we don't join their beliefs. Maybe, some of you would like to wear burkas, but, being a woman, I prefer not to!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
