The Unasked, But Easily Answered, Question For Ron Paul

Back in the day, when many of us were fighting for restoration of Americans’ right to own gold [](and use the Gold Clause []), I knew Ron Paul and many of the Paulistas around him.  Indeed, I testified before the Congressman when he was a member of the United States Gold Commission [].

Now,  from a sewer of his past, there have surfaced Ron Paul newsletters, containing scurrilous, racist, anti-Semitic, hate-filled diatribes against groups of his fellow Americans.  I’m not surprised, because of some of the people he associated with back in the day.

Though Paul has accepted “moral responsibility,” for the gutter words sent out below his name (and even signature), his “defense” is that he neither wrote nor read the newsletters and was thus ignorant of their content.

Americans can make up their minds about the nature and quality of Paul’s defense.

And so the focus shifts to the simple question I have not seen asked anywhere—one easily answered—which, if Ron Paul responds honestly, will, I assure you, have reverberations far beyond the current election campaign: Who was the author of Ron Paul’s newsletters?

I’ve used the singular, “author,” because I have a well-founded suspicion of who penned the diatribes that Paul should be held not only “morally responsible” for, but for which he should be held politically accountable as well.

Who has the courage to ask the question, and press for an answer?

Who was the author of Ron Paul’s newsletters?
