Ron Paul has decided to end the rumors that he is anything less than wholeheartedly behind his son’s presidential campaign. In a letter reportedly going out to voters in early states, Ron tells of his enthusiastic support.

In part, he wrote the following, according to Reason Magazine:

“Rand is the ONLY one in the race who is standing up for your Liberty, across the board….he is our best hope to restore liberty, limited government and the Bill of Rights and finally end the big spending status quo in Washington, D.C….

“Remember, truth is treason in the empire of lies. And nowhere is that more true than when it comes to Washington, D.C. and their media mouthpieces.

“Even where Rand and I do have minor differences of opinion, I would take Rand’s position over any of his opponents’ in both parties every time….”


He goes on:

“There is not one candidate who has run for president in my lifetime who can say they fully share my commitment to liberty, Austrian economics, small government, and following the Constitution, [more] than my son, Rand Paul.

“That’s why I have wholeheartedly endorsed him.

“I know the media likes to play this little game where they pit us, or certain views, against each other.

“Don’t fall for it. They’re trying to manufacture storylines at liberty’s expense. You’ve spent years seeing how the media treated me. They aren’t my friends and they aren’t yours.”

More good news for Rand after recent polls found him gaining slightly after the first Republican debate last week.
