Ron Paul's Florida flier, 6-page newsletter blasts GOP "counterfeits," Obama

PaulScanned Image


PaulcoverRon Paul looks like the only other Republican candidate who's joining Mitt Romney in going after Florida's early voters. So far, about 410,000 absentee ballots have been mailed to Florida Republicans. Romney has hit some of them up twice. But it looks like he's not hitting everyone. This Paul mailer was received by a pattern Republican primary voter from Miami who has so far received mail from no one else.

Some question the financial wisdom of so-called chase mail to move voters who cast absentee ballots. Do these flyers move voters to mail their ballots in quickly based on the last mail piece they see? Are they more likely to vote based on television ads or debates? 

It's not clear if it's worth the electoral bang for the buck. But if you have the buck, take a chance on a bang. It probably doesn't hurt. And in Romney's case, he's taking few chances. He and his SuperPac are also bombarding the state airwaves.

Paul's mailer is an apt reflection of the candidate. Like the candidate who's prone to give long answers to questions, the mailer includes six single-spaced pages of detailed explanation that hammer his opponents and play up his strengths. But, in the eyes of his critics, anything that recalls the race-baiting and gay-bashing Ron Paul Political Report newsletters of the 1990s is fair game.  Ron Paul disavows the bigoted language.

In the poll mailer, President Obama is criticized for his big spending, Romney for passing a template of ObamaCare and Gingrich for once supporting it (the health mandate, that is). Paul spares Rick Perry, Jon Huntsman and Rick Santorum any mention in the letter. The glossy flier that accompanies the newsletter depicts "counterfeits" Romney, Gingrich and Perry but leaves out Huntsman and Santorum. It's a sign that polling indicates Huntsman and Santorum probably can't win Florida right now, though that could (could) change.

At 52 I'm a little older than what most people think a Ron Paul supporter is.

I had a friend in Lake Mary tell me about him, and after I learned a few things about Ron Paul, I was hooked.

If we had a majority of statesmen like him in Congress, the United States would be much better off.

I wish that these people who have been brainwashed to believe that terrorism is the greatest threat to them would stop to realize that if we continue to fall in to debt as a country, and our economic system fails their neighbor will become the terrorist who is trying to kill them because they have the last can of beans !! GO POPS GO !!

This is history unfolding in front of us. Technology is allowing people desiring freedom to finally unite despite our political leaders trying to keep us down. From the Middle East to Russia to the USA people are waking up. The good guys can really win if we work together. RON PAUL 2012

Ill either vote for someone attached to the libertarians or wont vote at all... career repubs and democrats for as long as I've been alive and this country just keeps getting more in debt and less free. Year after year.

So go ron paul! Way passed time for a real change.

Paul's the ONLY conservative candidate of either party.

Romney 4 example claimed that by Executive order he'd eliminate ObamaCare, showing how stupid he was: Separation of Powers, hello? Only CONGRESS can write law Home Boy!

Gingrich is fiscally smart, but he's been married, divorced & walked out HOW many times...? No thanks. Like Pres Obama, Dr. Paul has been faithful to his wife.

Santorum MIGHT be alright, but his official campaign page does NOT address making or guaranteeing of student loans by the Federal Government:

On Oct 23, 2011, the AP reported that "Paul Calls for End to Federal Student Loan Program," which means that Ron Paul is the ONLY really good candidate on Higher Education & Economy, 2 big issues:

Paul's desire to phase out student loans is good since the presence of easy loans causes dishonest colleges to raise tuition to match increased borrowing ability thus causing skyrocketing tuition AND costing tax dollars in the process since tax dollars back student loans!!

See THIS funny vid about a question allegedly banned by Fox, and asked of Dr. Paul:
