    Ron Paul for President Thread (Take 2)

    (I hope you don't mind me stealing your thunder, KenH. I didn't want to post this in a thread being closed.)

    Reason's Hit & Run blog features two Paul stories:

    1) A new blimp add

    2) Reason's Gillespie chatting on the Washington Post's website about Paul

    Is there any positive news about the Ron Paul campaign besides the 900+ Meetup Groups, most GOP straw poll victories, and the hugh fundraising? If the polls don't go up soon, can he win?

    I just ordered a nice looking Polo shirt from Dr. Paul's campaign at www.ronpaul2008store.com

    If you know a Ron Paul supporter and still need to buy them a Christmas present, I'd recommend going there.

    Money is tight right now, so my family just drew names, rather than buying for everyone. My uncle drew my name and I just told him to go online and get me some Ron Paul merchandise.

    (You know, that would make a good commercial...I think I'll forward that to the campaign.):wavey:

    I was wondering if the two would ever be tied together....it's almost scary being right this often.

    Ron Paul on Illegal Immigration and Border Security

    On Illegal Immigration and Border Security


    by Congressman Ron Paul(R-TX)

    Illegal immigration is on the forefront of many Americans’ minds lately and with good reason. The Center for Immigration Studies has recently reported that our immigrant population is now 37 million, up from 27 million in 1997. 1 in 3 of these immigrants are here illegally. We have a problem that has exploded in the last 10 years with no appreciable change in border security since September 11 when we were supposed to take a hard look at the problem.



    We have security issues at home and our resources are running thin. Our education system is stretched, and immigration accounts for virtually all the national increase in public school enrollment in the last 2 decades. There is a worker present in 78% of immigrant households using at least one major welfare program, according to the same study. It’s no surprise then that often times these immigrants can afford to work for lower wages. They are subsidized by our government to do so.

    Right now we are subsidizing a lot of illegal immigration with our robust social programs and it is an outrage that instead of coming to the United States as a land of opportunity, many come for the security guaranteed by government forced transfer payments through our welfare system. I have opposed giving federal assistance to illegal immigrants and have introduced legislation that ends this practice. In the last major House-passed immigration bill I attempted to introduce an amendment that would make illegal immigrants ineligible for any federal assistance. Unfortunately, that amendment was ruled "not relevant" to immigration reform. I believe it is very relevant to taxpayers, however, who are being taken advantage of through the welfare system. Illegal immigrants should never be eligible for public schooling, social security checks, welfare checks, free healthcare, food stamps, or any other form government assistance.

    The anchor baby phenomenon has also been very problematic. Simply being born on US soil to illegal immigrant parents should not trigger automatic citizenship. This encourages many dangerous behaviors and there are many unintended consequences as a result of this blanket policy. I am against amnesty and I have introduced an amendment to the Constitution (H.J. Res 46) which will end this form of amnesty.

    I have also supported the strengthening our border and increasing the number of border patrol agents. It is an outrage that our best trained border guards are sent to Iraq instead of guarding our borders. For national security, we need to give more attention to our own border which is being illegally breached every day, and yet the government shirks one of its few constitutionally mandated duties, namely to defend this country. Citizens lose twice with our current insecure border situation – we don’t have the protection we should have, and then taxpayers have to deal with the fallout in the form of overstretched public resources and loss of jobs.

    The anger is understandable when it comes to illegal immigration and the problems with our borders. I will continue to fight in Congress for more effective ways to address these issues in keeping with the Constitutional mandate to protect America.

    Ken,

    What do you make of this article?

    Did he win the poll or did he cheat by bringing people with him? It sorta sounds like he's being accused of packing his supporters around the country in his suitcase or something.

    Them BGR's can be purdy wacky sometimes can't they? :laugh:

    It was good to see the Mainstream Media forced to admit its error in reporting about Ron Paul's victory. The MSM doesn't understand the power of the grassroots when it is motivated. It may not be enough to win Ron Paul the GOP presidential nomination but it is more than sufficient to give the Republican Establishment severe headaches.

    I just watched The View for the first time. Terrible show, btw. Paul really held strong on the issue of abortion. He equated abortion to murder! :thumbs:

    I wish I could. :sigh: Won't happen though.

    Btw, I hope Paul's wierder fans (to put it nicely) stay home. We DON'T need/want them.
