Gravel Steps Up

He might not be 'our candidate', and he might not have the calm persuasiveness of Ron Paul, but Mike Gravel let's the world know where he stands. Check him out in this Huff Post article:

By Mike Gravel

During one of the debates I mentioned that my fellow Democratic candidates scare me. Hillary's speech last week to the Take Back America conference gives me yet another reason to be afraid.

In an indignant voice she decried the Bush administration's ''stunning record of secrecy and corruption, of cronyism run amok. . . It is everything our founders were afraid of, everything our Constitution was designed to prevent.'' Actually, our Constitution grants Congress the power to prevent these ills but Hillary and her colleagues weren't up to the task.

Our founders' legacy did not stop Hillary from voting for the Patriot Act and then supporting its renewal in 2006 despite revelations that the government was using it to infringe on the very liberties that our founders held sacred. Where was her commitment to our founders when she voted to gut our habeas corpus protections?

When it comes to 9/11 truth: RP or not RP? (Why that is not the question...)

There is an important discussion going on between two passionate communities: the 9/11 truth movement's investigators and activists and Ron Paul's grassroots campaign supporters. A growing minority of people are finding themselves in the overlap of these two groups and seeing the growth of each one as well as the occasional tension between the two. I found an interesting post on the Ron Paul Press Hub, pleading with Ron Paul supporters to leave insinuations about Paul and 9/11 at a distance from the Congressman's campaign. As a person who falls into that overlap myself, I think that makes a lot of sense.



I’ve always found it natural that people who are least trusting of government would flock to Dr. Paul. However, as we have seen in the past, anything that the general public considers to be a conspiracy theory can be used as ammunition against our favorite Congressman.

From in response to a member of a particular MeetUp suggesting he/she go to a 9/11 Truth MeetUp in
an attempt to find new supporters:

Ron Paul and the 9/11 Truth Movement

If there is anything this movement needs, it is a candidate who can carry its message with integrity. Many have wondered if Ron Paul may be that person and that politician. While Paul has in now way come out against the government's story, he has been adamant about the nation's ruinous foreign policy, it's governmental excesses, and it's dangerous militarism. He detests corporatism, industry subsidies, and the inflationary effects of war (which reduce the value of our currency).

Paul is a candidate who consistently defends liberty and privacy and limited government when it comes to gun rights, the internet, and taxes. Though he is not flawless, and some may struggle with his views on certain issues, Paul's philosophy is strong and his adherence to it is remarkable. I thought people might want to learn more about him, so I compiled a list of TV appearances, interviews, speeches, articles, and campaign information on the site TheTruthAbout911 (that's right, Ron Paul AND 9/11 truth together...hmmm).


What everyone should know about the 9/11 truth movement...

(For the uninitiated, the unsure, and even the disgusted)

Before you go throwing around "wackos, wingbats, nutjobs and conspiracy theorists, etc..." or listening to those who are, learn a little about the people who call themselves the 9/11 truth movement:

1. The 9/11 truth movement is diverse, democratic, and non-partisan. This is not a far right-wing or far left-wing movement. There are Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hispanics, Whites, African Americans, rich, poor, PhD professors, college students, truck drivers, teachers, lawyers, doctors, architects, Reverends,atheists, democrats, republicans, and independents. There is no "type" of truther, because the truth knows neither religious, ethnic, social nor secular boundaries.
