Ron Paul on CNN - "I'm the only candidate saying I'll pardon all non-violent drug offenders!"

Last night, before Fox's debate, Ron Paul was brought onto Wolf's show on CNN and accused of being a racist - based upon a few articles written in a newsletter over 15 years ago - articles that Ron Paul didn't write, has apologized for in the past, and his record clearly shows are against his principles. Ron Paul associates the Drug War with racism, and wants to put an end to both. There is a write-up about what he said here: http://www.usadaily.com/article.cfm?articleID=224327 The video where he says he will pardon ALL non-violent federal drug war victims is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6rxts0-f9w This comment is near the end... @ 5:19 or -1:00 If you haven't taken a GOOD look at this candidate, PLEASE do us all a favor and do so. He's not just against the drug war, he wants justice for the victims of this criminal policy that deprives the citizens of their constitutionally protected rights. Stop imposing a moral directive onto a free people through abuse of law... And has a unique foreign policy that will end the Iraq war, stop war with Iran before it begins... He also wants to fix our economy. He has the strongest, most knowledgeable position on the economy out of all the candidates on either side.

Pardon All Non-Violent Drug Users

If you want to get non-violent drug offenders out of jail for good, please read this.

Ron Paul has been a Congressman for 20 years, and votes on every occasion with 100 percent consistency against the drug war, against the drug czar's office, and in favor of medical marijuana; he's also chief sponsor of the 2007 Industrial Hemp Act. Ron Paul is the only one of all the Republican Presidential candidates to continually oppose the Iraq War in Congress, since before the first vote in 2002. Ron Paul voted against The Patriot Act, and against regulating the Internet.

Ron Paul believes this: "While recognizing the harm that drug abuse causes society, we also recognize that government drug policy has been ineffective and has led to frightening abuses of the Bill of Rights which could affect the personal freedom of any American. We, therefore, support alternatives to the War on Drugs. Per the tenth amendment to the US Constitution: matters such as drugs should be handled at the state or personal level. All laws, which give license to violate the Bill of Rights, should be repealed." (Republican Liberty Caucus Position Statement 00-RLC13 on Dec. 8, 2000.)

Ron Paul promised in the Detroit Free Press on September 21, 2007 that he would pardon non-violent drug offenders, also saying "mandated life sentences are insane. I'd release them. I'd pardon them." As I wrote in the Letter From the Editor of CC number 66, I believe Ron Paul would have his Attorney General rescind the extradition request for myself, Michelle Rainey, and Greg Williams. Ron Paul - whom the mainstream media has, until recently, largely ignored - is the true Champion of the Constitution. He is the number 1 defender of your civil liberties in the US Congress. You can see many outstanding speeches and debates with Ron Paul at Youtube.com. Google Ron Paul and listen to or read any of his major speeches; you will be amazed.
