*Update – Ron Paul Supporters – please visit this site. Thank you to Guinness for pointing that out!
Lately, I have been getting a lot of spam about Ron Paul from bloggers on all different kinds of sites but especially personal finance ones. And at first I looked into this guy but I then started thinking that he is nuts; and I am sorry if you support him but after reading this post over at Daily Kos this morning, I am convinced he is nuts – and maybe he is even encouraging all these people to send out spam mail to all of us. Here is what the post had to say about him:
Ron Paul wants the US to withdraw from the UN.
Ron Paul has tried to repeal the Occupational Health and Safety Act, to abolish the minimum wage, and to eviscerate Social Security.
Ron Paul wants guns in schools.
Ron Paul has tried to repeal the Davis-Bacon Act to guarantee employees of federal contractors the prevailing wage and wants to make it easier to decertify a union.
Ron Paul wants to amend the Constitution to end birthright citizenship.
There are references for each one of those posts to back up their claims, so head on over if you want to read them. And while I can understand that people want a different kind of politician in Washington (believe me, I do too), I also want a sane one! Now, if you are a blogger sending me spam about Ron Paul, you can stop – I don’t support him, I won’t support him, and I will just keep adding the strange things I learn about him to this post every time you spam me! 😉
