Ron Paul just resurrected his campaign Larry Fester

Analysis-In the midst of an emerging controversy that would have crumbled a lesser candidate, Ron Paul just defended himself against allegations of racism that left Wolf Blitzer of CNNís situation room stuttering.

A recent New Republic hit piece on Ron Paul brought up racist writings that were written under the Ron Paul newsletter. The letters had been public for over 15 years and Paul had denied writing those years ago.

When questioned on the letters by Blitzer, Paul said that he had not paid attention to the newsletter that was written in his name and that he didnít know who wrote them. Paul said that he had taken moral responsibility for not paying more attention to what went out in his name.




Paul then eloquently addressed the issue of racism and demonstrated that the collectivist concept of racism was entirely contrary to the Libertarian ideal of individual liberty. Paul also said that his ideology did not see people in groups but instead viewed everyone as an important individual.

Paul also said that the attacks and allegations against him were because his campaign is growing and gaining traction among black voters. Paul leads all Republicans among blacks.

Paul then said that he is the only candidate running that would pardon all blacks and whites convicted of non violent drug crimes and that the racism is in the judicial system. He said that he honored Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. for their acts of non violent Civil Disobedience which he said was a Libertarian concept.

Paul also pointed out that his grassroots supporters have planned a mass donation day scheduled on Martin Luther King Jrís holiday to honor Dr. King and Dr Paul.

Paulís supporters consider him the first Civil Rights leader of the 21st Century for his tireless defense of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Paul voted against the Patriot Act and has made the defense of Civil Liberties a cornerstone of his political career.

Paulís political campaign is clearly uniting people from all backgrounds. Time will tell, but I do believe that the Wolf Blitzer interview is the turning point of the campaign.

If Fox News attempts to sand bag Paul on the issue during tonightís debate it will backfire and he will win the debate easily.
