Ron Paul Endorsements – Full list with a side of commentary

Below is a full list of those brave souls who have endorsed Ron Paul for President. It’s strange that in today’s world of instant access to information that so many people have no idea who Ron Paul is, or what he stands for, but it’s nice to see some familiar names on the list.

I’ve got a lot of respect for Andrew Sullivan, but I’ve gained a lot of respect for Tucker Carlson and Jim Cramer as I noticed their endorsements. There is also strong support in the economics community, notably Steve Hanke – showing that not everyone is too greedy to remain complicit in a flawed economic system.

I laughed pretty hard when I saw that WWE wrestlers Kane and Val Venis tossed in their support as did former KKK Grand Wizard Don Black. I’d like to think that if they were still alive, that Hunter S. Thompson and Kurt Vonnegut Jr. would be adamantly supporting this man as well.

10 Responses to Ron Paul Endorsements – Full list with a side of commentary

  1. I suspect the endorsements list will grow as the Ron Paul campaign issued this press release earlier today:

    “Dr.Paul Issues Statement in Support of State ‘Right to Life’ Amendments

    Ron Paul 2008 campaign
    December 27, 2007

    http://www.ronpaul2008.com/press-releases/90/dr-paul-issues-statement-in-sup

    port-of-state-%e2%80%98right-to-life%e2%80%99-amendments

    Angela Wittman
    Media Coordinator
    Larry Kilgore for US Senate (R-TX)

  2. J.Farson says:

    Why is Walter Williams on that list. He didn’t officially endorse Paul, he actually said we would be better off if we put their names in a hat and drew one.

  3. Steven McDuffie says:

    Take me off the list, as a candidate anyway…
    I still support Ron Paul, but I am no longer a candidate. I don’t have the patience to talk to stupid people day in and day out on the campaign trail.

  4. The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.AlbertEinsteinAlbert Einstein

  5. US News says:

    Success is determined by those whom prove the impossible, possible.JamesW.PenceJames W. Pence

  6. Naturally the common people don’t want war. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. All you have to do is to tell them that they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.HermannGoeringHermann Goering
