    From Michael Medved's open letter:
    1) Check out Jews4RonPaul.org (Paul evidently is slightly more tolerant than Hitler.)

    2) Check out Paul's pointed criticisms of racism of all forms.

    3) Check out the "Ron Paul Absolutely Not a Truther Audio Interview" here

    4) Check out numerous Paul bloggers responding to this letter with one raising this gem from Giuliani's campaign:

    Giuliani Defends, Employs Priest Accused of Molesting Teens (This, even after the RCC oficially removed the Priest of all duties and a, "grand jury also said that Priest F became instrumental in a church policy that used 'deception and intimidation' to keep the church scandal quiet.") Bolding mine.

    And finally we have this from just one of many Paul supporters:

    And after this is resolved, perhaps someone should write a letter to Medved asking him to denounce former business parter Jack Abramoff whom he once served with on the board of directors for Toward Tradition. (To date, I'm unaware of Paul having an official business alliance with Duke.)

    "Michael Medved needs to speak up about Jack Abramoff"

    Don't forget to call him a neocon.

    Strippers, truthers, potheads, nazis.....

    Ron Paul seems to have some good ideas, but his supporters concern me, greatly. I don't want a president elected on George Soros money, because I think Soros is a creep, and any friend of his should be suspect. The same with these folks, I don't want a guy elected with their money, because it ALWAYS means those groups expect something back.

    Until he denounces these groups, and can show he's given their money back, no thanks.

    Whether or not Medved is a neocon is contingent upon one's views of conservatism. His business relationship with Abramoff (who he has still to denounce after defending him) is neither theoretical nor hypothetical. Oddly, you don't seem to care.

    As to the OP: politics is dirty business. If you hold other candidates (or Medved) to the same standard as you're holding Paul you'll ultimately eliminate everyone. Paul has denounced racist, conspiratorial, and anti-semitic ideas (if you check out the links I posted which I take it you haven't) and, well, that places him on par with every other candidate.

    And for the record, if you're interested in what Paul himself actually thinks, his ideological hero is the economist and Jewish immigrant Ludwig von Mises.

    Medved is probably the most intelligent neocon in the Bush camp. Lies like a rug.

    Medved fill the classic definition of a neocon--a liberal Jewish Democrat who went conservative.

    Medved is highly talented. I used to listen to him when I worked nights. He knows show business because he and his brother compiled a list of the ten worst movies--the ones that are so bad that they are good. For a long time he had a tv show about movies.

    Then he is an historian.

    He is pro-Israel, of course. And he is a Republican activist and radio talk show host.

    I think the world of him and I was never Jewish and never liked left-wingers. Left-wingers are personally cold in my opinion.

    Bro. Curtis,
    I doubt that any candidate irregardless of who they are will truely want to see funding closely scrutinized even though it should.
    If one were to dig deep enough you could probably find lunatics and wealthy influentual people such as Soros supporting the campaigns of other candidates also.
    I do believe Ron Paul has the correct message though.

    It's not like that at all Petra-O IX...it's just that well...real Americans want the military/energy industrial complex's money to keep buying their presidents for them. At least there will always be an enemy to pre emptively attack that way.

    Blood and guts, it's what for dinner!
