the ron paul political journal was an 8 page newsletter owned and published by ron paul. he claims some of the articles were ghostwritten but there is no proof of that because the newsletter contains no bylines, the only name on it is that of ron paul. how can you possibly say he isnt responsible for the content?
and, to clarify, this isnt a smear campaign but actually this information was brought to light by his tireless supporters, the white power movement! wonderfully ironic i think.
Moreover, the L.A. riots article does in fact bear some evidence of having been written by Paul, at least in part. (For example, the article relates the observations of one Burt Blumert, who is labeled "expert Burt Blumert" but who is actually just a gold coin and bullion dealer in San Francisco who happens to be a longtime personal friend of... Ron Paul.)
he published these words under his name in his newsletter as a representation of his views. it was an 8 page newsletter, not a 200 page book, any open minded individual will find it obvious he was aware of its contents.
his efforts to distance himself from it are more than a little disingenuous.
