OT but not OT: A man for the Constitution?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Today I received an e-mail forwarded to me by a friend, who also wants to see Constitutional government restored. I have tried to cut and paste it here, and cannot (am definitely not a techie!). Has anyone out there seen a letter from Congressman Ron Paul about his stand on the things many on this forum hold dear, and do you know how to post it here, or post a link to it? Otherwise, I'll have to re-type a lengthy but vital communication from him to the people of our nation. This seems particularly apropos as we face Y2K, and all the other concerns of the near future so well covered here in many OT posts which are really germaine to our future.

Liberty, might you have this info? (This is also my real e-mail.)

To take a page from Al-d:


Thanks Unc for showing us what this charade is really all about,

The credit goes to Liberty, he posted that letter here first. Also, it is my understanding that Ron Paul is a Libertarian who ran as a Republican in order to improve his chance at election time. I'll be sending him a contribution tomorrow. I hope others will too.

Upon re-reading the above post, I think that you are refering to a different charade than I am. I frankly don't care who posts as who, or why, if they have a worthwhile point of view.

Ron Paul is one of the very few Congressmen worth voting for. Most of the others are only worth voting against.

It would truly be refreshing to live in this man's district.

I have never posted as Ed or Elaine. And I have no connection with Ron P. other than posting his letter previously and suggesting that people who care about preserving our liberties (indeed, preserving some semblance of a free society for posterity) should contribute to his campaign. I'm not a "shill," as I just discovered Ron's letter on the Sightings newsboard a few days ago. I didn't know he existed before then.

"jfcp81a" is afraid of his own freedom - and yours.

jfcp will be a great snitch'for big brother.

I might point out to others reading this thread a warning. Each of you should be very carefull before sending money to a cause you stumble across on the web. Many requests are simply scams seeking to separate you from your cash. But, others might seek to market or otherwise exploit any info you might send. Remember, your e-mail address, bank account number and/or credit card number are quite as valuable to others as they are to you.

Sending money to a cause you hear about on the WWW is like sending money to an address you might read on the toilet wall in the bus station lounge. In other words, you might want to count to ten before you dial that number. At least thoroughly investigate each source before even corresponding through e-mail. Do not assume that other posters who validate a particular cause are objective bystanders. Like any other references you receive from a possible con-artist, they may be part of the scam or paid contibutors. Also, a 1-800 number is not an endorsement by the Phone company - lots of con-artists start out with such a number.

Disclaimer: The Ron P. cause could be just what this country needs. On the other hand, it might not be. Your mileage may vary.
