    As to Reagan, the young Congressman who had once been so anxious to be photographed with him scampered like a Texas jackrabbit when the going got tough. In 1987, when Reagan truly needed his supporters to stand by him, Ron Paul suddenly disappeared from the man's side. In fact, he resigned from the Republican Party and blamed Reagan for his disillusionment with the GOP. In a letter that echoed the prevailing Democrat talking points of the day he wrote, "The chickens have yet to come home to roost, but they will, and America will suffer from a Reaganomics that is nothing but warmed-over Keynesianism." That letter was not merely an act of breathtaking betrayal -- it actually compares Reagan to Josef Stalin -- its characterization of Reagan's economic policies is utterly absurd.





    Moving on to the Perry smear, Paul left an important fact out of his ad: Rick Perry was a Democrat when he supported Gore 23 years ago. And, if that puts you off, remember that Ronald Reagan himself was once a Democrat. Perry and Reagan eventually realized that the Democrat party was drifting ever leftward, abandoning the principles that had once claimed their loyalty. The party of Scoop Jackson had morphed into the party of George McGovern, so both joined the GOP because it more closely matched their ideals and those of the nation's founders. As to "Dr. No," having received fewer than half a million votes as the 1988 Libertarian presidential candidate, he came crawling back to the party he had so vehemently denounced and was eventually reelected to Congress under the GOP banner

    Wow...The neocon douchebags at American Spectator detest libertarians in general and Dr. Ron Paul in particular?

    Be sure to alert the rest of the media! :rolleyes:

    here is the OP pages link to the Ron Paul letter.
    http://www.textfiles.com/politics/ron_paul.txt
    Oh, wait... it's not an 'actual' letter, or copy. It's 'the text' of the letter. No corroborating evidence that it was actually a Ron Paul authored letter.

    I am NOT saying I don't believe it was a Ron Paul letter. I am saying an un-named source, with text attributed to Ron Paul, doesn't convince me that it is a Ron Paul authored letter.

    Now, if someone had an actual scan of the letter, or if Ron Paul admitted he wrote it, that's another story.

    EDIT:

    I have to do everything myself around here.... slackers;)
