    Its always "people close to his operation"... that turn out to be disgruntled ex-employees...

    A few statements, in 9 newsletters out of hundreds, that all occur in a short period of time in the early 90's that just so happen to occur when Paul's medical practice was booming, does not even kinda appear to be a coincidence to ya, huh? Even though the writing style of of these few articles, in these 9 newsletters, is completely different from the rest, and contain material not found in any of the others? Even though these go against everything that is found in both the rest of his earlier writings?

    Sorry, but the media, and you, are grasping at straws here...

    One last thing; I do not believe anything in these newsletters are "racist." In fact, they sound almost identical to things which Michael Berry, a popular conservative talk show host, has said. Berry is also accused of racism by far left radicals. But it is odd that conservatives would do so.

    So if Ron Paul becomes President and some on his staff go rogue...

    Will you be making excuses for him then too?

    If his name was on the newsletter it was incumbent upon him to know what was going into it.

    You can say the same thing of Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum, who have ALL claimed in just the last couple of months to have had things go out in their campaign that they did not know or approve of (not just Super Pac ads, either).

    So apparently a mistake that Paul made almost twenty years ago, is worse than the same mistake made by his opponents in the last couple of months.

    Hypocrisy. Denounce Santorum, Gingrich, and Romney the same way you have Paul...

    The Libertarian concept of freedom is universally applied to all personal/private activities. Why do "Christians" differentiate between right to work and right hire and right to attend church and right to join the Boy Scouts and right to join a social club?

    If I have a "right" to hire only scabs then the AFL-CIO has the same "right" to fill the street in front of your business with 10,000 picketers.

    Libertarian theory says if white people don't want black employees and black customers, that's their loss. Black people had black businesses with black customers before the Civil Rights Act of '64. The do-gooders killed the black businesses. Maybe that was the intent, maybe an unintended consequence.


    The Integration line should be drawn at public employment and public services. The GDP of black people in the USA is higher than the total GDP of all black African nations. It is their community social contract that screws them up, not the American system - same as the white trash community social contract.

    Now, if white wholesalers should conspire to charge black retailers twice the going price . . . is that any different than Big Oil fixing the retail price of gas and heating oil?

    They could but they won't. Hypocrites rarely look at themselves. Targus and Mandy have been the biggest supporters of killing and imprisoning without due process foreign (and domestic) "people of color" on this board yet they find a few newsletters that Paul may or may not even known about 20 years ago offensive?

    Hypocrite is exactly the right word to describe these two.
