So, the Ron Paul conspiracy theorists are all up in arms about Rick Perry now, because he attended one meeting of the Bildbergers. Oh, and he approved the mandatory vaccination asked for by the Center for Disease Control for pregnant mothers.
This is right up there with the attacks on Herman Cain being a member of the Federal Reserve Board in Kansas City, despite never having a voting position on the main board that decides policy.
Oh, let alone the attacks on almost every other candidate in the race.
Look, Ron Paul fans, you are doing yourselves a huge disservice. First, I already know if Ron isn't the nominee, you won't be going to the polls for the general election. That is just the way you guys are. It is Ron or nobody. Secondly, though, your ideas on the size of government need to be heard but are drowned out by your attitude.
Please, also, stop trying to claim Ron Paul started the Tea Party movement. He was not there, he was not involved. Michael Leahy, Eric Odom, Terri Christoph, and others started the movement after the rant by Rick Santelli on CNBC. Nationally known names came in secondly, including Michelle Malkin, Dick Armey's Freedomworks, Glenn Beck's 912 Movement etc. Though some of the leaders may have sympathy for Paul, Campaign for Liberty only showed up after the first two rallies were held, and only then in certain parts of the country. Even then, C4L in many areas refused to work with the other Tea Party groups forming up.
Don't you think all those groups formed because they did not want to be associated with Paul? I know a number of them did, just because of the reasons stated above.
So please, just give us all a break. I voted for Paul in 2008, but the actions of his supporters make me not want to do so again, even if he does come out the winner of the primary. I will, though, because I care more about this country than the cult of personality surrounding Ron Paul. You should as well.
