Ron Paul supporters insist that their great leader honors freedom of speech, but that’s not the face that the Ron Paul for President campaign showed yesterday. Yesterday, Ron Paul’s campaign called government officers to come and stop people from exercising their constitutional freedoms. Ron Paul’s campaign asked that people using their liberty have handcuffs slapped around their wrists before being hauled off to jail.
Demonstrators with Occupy The Caucuses showed up at the Ron Paul 2012 Iowa campaign headquarters. They protested Ron Paul’s opposition to environmental protections. Ron Paul wants to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency, and destroy laws the prevent massive pollution in American communities. “We need clean air and water, don’t dismantle the EPA,” said the protesters.
Ron Paul’s campaign didn’t want to listen. Instead of honoring the voice of liberty, Ron Paul simply had the environmentalists placed behind bars.
Will voters in next week’s Iowa caucuses reward Ron Paul for his repression of political protest?
