It looks like I’m in big trouble. I contributed to Ron Paul’s campaigns in 2008 and 2012. I still have Ron Paul stickers and magnets on my three cars. Maybe I should put my lawn signs back up so the NSA drones don’t accidently kick in my neighbor’s door when they come to take me to the FEMA camp.
Is it really shocking that this American Patriot has libertarian leanings? Did they really think he was liberal Democrat or Neo-con Republican? Really?
Libertarians and those who choose to use their brains know that Ron Paul is the only public figure in Washington DC who understands and abides by the U.S. Constitution. The ruling class have no interest in the Constitution. They are corporate fascists who love their power, wealth and control. They will use any means necessary to maintain that control and power. The time to choose sides in this fight is rapidly approaching. Edward Snowden just dumped the tea into the Boston Harbor. Will we show up at our Bunker Hill?
NSA Whistleblower Revealed: Edward Snowden Donated $500 To Ron Paul’s 2012 Presidential Campaign: Does NSA Whistleblower Have Libertarian Leanings?
Campaign contribution records appear to show that Edward Snowden, the confessed National Security Agency whistle-blower who spoke out against government surveillance in the Guardian on Sunday, donated $500 to Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential bid.
Records at CampaignMoney.com show two contributions of $250 each from an Edward Snowden with addresses in Hawaii and Maryland. According to the Guardian’s interview with the 29-year-old whistle-blower, Snowden lived with his family in Maryland before moving to Hawaii.
Paul, the former Texas congressman, is a leading libertarian voice and a staunch critic of both President Barack Obama and so-called big government. He ran as a Republican in 2012, but lost the party nomination to Mitt Romney.
In his interview with the Guardian, Snowden said he expects to be strung up on espionage charges, given the Obama administration’s history of prosecuting whistle-blowers. He said he has been holed up in a hotel room in Hong Kong.
Snowden’s coming forward has resulted in an outpouring of support on social media, where Facebook and Twitter users are heralding him as a 21st century hero. According to Trevor Trimm, executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, the famed Pentagon Papers whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg called Snowden the hero for whom he’s been waiting 40 years.
