What ever happened to Ross Perot?
3 year old response:

Quote:
Mr. Perot ran for president of the United States in 1992 as an independent candidate, winning 19 percent of the vote?one of the largest percentages ever for an independent candidate. He ran again in 1996 on the Reform Party ticket.

He called Newsweek on Jan. 16, 2008 giving an interview slamming John McCain.

The pint-size Texan with the funny voice and the big ears isn't planning to run for president again, but says he will launch a Web site next month with plenty of the charts and graphs he made famous when explaining the deficit in 1992.
Ron and Rand have friends in Stormfront including the former KKK leader.

Obviously a bit racist irregardless of what Rand says........ At the time, I didn't realize that Ron was too. Since then, I learned that he is in a round about way tied to them at least in spirit. nuff said.

Whay evidence do you all have of racism involving Ron Paul or Rand paul? And don't say it is because they "don't support" something like affirmative action or something...

That's the job of a President.

Quote:
Rand Paul ELECTED
OFFICE SOUGHT U.S. Senate, Kentucky
PARTY Tea Party-backed Republican
RESULTS Primary: Won with 58.8% (206,986 votes) of the 352,275 votes cast. General election Won with 55.7% (755,411 votes) of the 1,356,468 votes cast.
EXTREMIST IDEOLOGY Right-wing libertarian

Paul rode Tea Party support to upset the Kentucky GOP?s preferred candidate. During the campaign, many of Paul?s unorthodox political beliefs came to light, including his assertion that private businesses shouldn?t have been compelled to comply with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that barred discrimination. In a 2002 letter to the Bowling Green Daily News, Paul also criticized the Fair Housing Act, explaining that ?a free society will abide unofficial, private discrimination, even when that means allowing hate-filled groups to exclude people based on skin color.? After winning the Republican primary and being subjected to national criticism, Paul issued a press release declaring ?unequivocally? that he would not support any effort to repeal the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that he had criticized just days earlier. This January, Paul sent out a fundraising letter declaring that Hillary Clinton and the ?global gun-grabbers? at the United Nations are trying ?finally strip you and me of ALL our freedoms? by signing a treaty that would ?almost certainly? force the U.S. to ?CONFISCATE and DESTROY? all ?unauthorized? civilian firearms. (In fact, the treaty being discussed has nothing to do with regulating guns in the U.S., something that would be impossible in any event under the Constitution.) Paul added that ?the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees? since its founding in 1945. Last fall, he said he wanted to abolish the U.S. Department of Education so it couldn?t, for instance, mandate teaching kindergartners ?that Susie has two mommies,? a reference to same-sex couples with children. On immigration, Paul wants to erect a physical or electronic fence along all U.S. land borders, complete with ?satellite surveillance? and ?helicopter stations,? and deploy ?any unnecessary foreign units? of the American military to the border.

Pretty sure John McCain wouldn't have had his picture taken with a former head of the KKK and the leader of Stormfront Radio.

I'd have my pictures taken with those guys - I'd even take them out to dinner just to hear why they believe what they believe. That doesn't make someone a racist - it makes them smart to expand their minds.

A close-minded man is a lonely and angry man.

Save yourself the cost of dinner....

Don Black | Southern Poverty Law Center

Quote:
Don Black

Date of Birth: 1953
Groups: Stormfront
Location: West Palm Beach, FL
Ideology: White Nationalist
A former Klan state leader and long-time white supremacist, Don Black is best known for creating Stormfront.org, the first major Internet hate site. While the site remains popular in racist circles today, Black came under criticism in 2008 from other white supremacists for toning down its offensive content and for the claimed renunciation of racism made by his wife, Chloe Black, to a reporter.

In His Own Words
"The people that visit Stormfront have a righteous indignation to the Israelization of America. Zionism unbound, that is what goes on in Washington, D.C., these days. ? [T]he Jewish people demolish homes abroad and condition peoples minds with the media here in the U.S.A."
? 2004 interview with Impact News

"I remember [the 1950s] quite well, that a lot of people were mad about blacks. They were mad about school integration and black crime? . [B]ut ? it was kind of rare to find someone that really, fully understood the Jewish involvement ? behind all of this promotion of the destruction of culture and our heritage, the destruction of our schools and our neighborhoods. ? [W]ith the Internet ? and, I think, with this involvement in the Middle East, American involvement in the Middle East ? everything's changed. I mean, we have to calm down people sometimes on Stormfront about the Jews."
? Stormfront.org radio, 2008

"I get nonstop E-mails and private messages from new people who are mad as hell about the possibility of Obama being elected. White people, for a long time, have thought of our government as being for us, and Obama is the best possible evidence that we've lost that. This is scaring a lot of people who maybe never considered themselves racists, and it's bringing them over to our side."
? 2008 interview with The Washington Post

"[I]f Obama wins, then Americans, white Americans, are really going to realize where they stand. It'll be demoralizing for a lot of our people, and also white people throughout the world, to have the world's greatest military power headed up by a black."
? Stormfront.org radio, 2008

Criminal History
On April 27, 1981, Black and nine other white supremacists were arrested as they prepared to board a yacht stocked with weapons and ammunition to invade the Caribbean island of Dominica and take over its government. Black served three years in federal prison for his role in the invasion plot and for his violation of the Neutrality Act.

In 1987, Black, along with Klan leader David Duke, was reportedly charged with reckless conduct and for illegally blocking a state highway in Forsyth County, Ga., where they had traveled to take advantage of simmering racial tensions.

Background
Going back to high school, Don Black has always been one of the more enthusiastic proponents of white power. One of his first forays into the organized movement was in the 1970s, when he volunteered for the late white supremacist J.B. Stoner's unsuccessful run for governor of Georgia. He stayed with the campaign until Stoner's campaign manager, Jerry Ray, the brother of Martin Luther King Jr. assassin James Earl Ray, shot Black in the chest. The shooting apparently stemmed from accusations that Black had broken into Stoner's office to steal a mailing list for the National Socialist White People's Party.

After recovering, Black went on to join the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, the group headed by David Duke in the 1970s. Working on Duke's unsuccessful campaign for Louisiana state Senate, Black won Duke's trust, moving up to become his mentor's right-hand man in addition to his post as Alabama grand dragon, or state leader. When Duke left the group amid allegations that he'd tried to sell its membership list to another Klan group for $35,000, Black took over. Later, in the 1970s, according to The Crusader, a KKK newspaper, Black sponsored marches in defense of Robert Chambliss, who stood accused (and was later convicted) of the 1963 church bombing that killed four black girls in Birmingham, Ala. Not long after, Black got into trouble himself. In 1981, he and nine other white supremacists were arrested as they prepared to board a yacht with which they intended to invade the tiny Caribbean island of Dominica, oust its black-run government, and transform it into a "white state." Black's resulting three-year federal prison sentence was time well spent. He took classes in computer programming that would provide the basis for his future.
