VCU student (It seems it takes a VCU student to get things done!  Ask a Kansas basketball fan.) Conor Murphy wrote this fabulous article about the myths surrounding Cong. Ron Paul.  Some highlights:

The first and most common problem that conservatives have regarding Ron Paul is the assertion that he is weak on national defense. These individuals might need to be reminded that out of all the leading candidates, Ron Paul is the only one who has served in the military. He spent five years in the Air Force and the Air National Guard as a flight surgeon and reached the rank of Captain.

This was enough to impress Ronald Reagan who campaigned and endorsed Ron Paul when he ran for Congress.

“Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country.” Reagan said.

Murphy also assails a leading slur about Paul – that he is anti-Israel:

One of the most ludicrous accusations against Dr. Paul is his supposed stance of being anti-Israel. This was most likely due to statements he has made saying that the United States should cease sending Israel foreign aid. The thing is, Ron Paul supports ending foreign aid to all nations. This would actually put Israel in a better position than they’re in right now. We currently give Israel’s enemies three times as much aid as we give Israel. By ending all foreign aid, we stop helping Israel’s enemies, and they’ll begin to grow less dependent.

Murphy also asserts that Ron Paul was right about the 2007 housing bubble burst as well as saying he will never support or vote for an unbalanced budget.  (This will be a challenge if he gets elected!  But I’d like to see this pulled off.)  The nation may be looking for new leadership in either party, or outside of it.  Paul is perfect for that role.  Let’s get him elected!

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