ARLINGTON, VA – The United Republicans of California (UROC) have unanimously endorsed Congressman Ron Paul for president of the United States. UROC, formed in 1963 to support Barry Goldwater, represents the traditional conservative wing of the California Republican Party.
“The unanimous endorsement from the United Republicans of California proves what the campaign has been saying all along,” said campaign chairman Kent Snyder. “Ron Paul is the only true conservative and real Republican in the race.”
In their official statement endorsing Dr. Paul, UROC called him “the leading advocate for freedom in our nation’s capital” and recognized that:
Ron Paul’s voting record demonstrates that he has voted against:
· raising taxes;
· unbalanced budgets;
· a federal restriction on gun ownership;
· raising congressional pay; or
· increasing the power of the executive branch.
His voting record demonstrates further that he voted against:
· the USA Patriot Act;
· regulating the Internet; and
· the war in Iraq.
Dr. Paul is the only candidate with a record that matches the UROC’s platform.
“Whether the issue is life, the Second Amendment, foreign policy, spending or taxes, Ron Paul is the only traditional conservative candidate,” continued Snyder. “Traditional conservatives across the country should support Ron Paul for president.”
California Republican? What is that?
Of the 15 or so people running for president, exactly one is for less government. That is the one I am voting for. Everyone else can claim to be conservative all they want, but I’m not buying it.
Never heard of them.
Like Arnie the RINO.
You think that if Duncan Hunter were president that less money would be spent then the prior year? When I mean less government, I don’t mean cutting the rate of growth. I mean actually less money going out the door than before.
Never heard of them.
I think they have 2 or 3 members. They probably make their living producing white flags for Ron Paul to wave.
To be clear, Hunter voted for the 2003 Medicare boondoggle, perhaps the most expensive piece of legislation of all time. He is not for less government. He is for perhaps growing it slower than the dems, except for when he feels the need to vote for a boondoggle like medicare becasue he thinks it is good politics.
Everyone else can claim to be conservative all they want, but Im not buying it.
Now is Hunter a conservative to you? Or do you define a conservative solely on spending?
I don't define it solely on that, but it is a neccessary requrement. The modern conservative movement was built on the premise that money is better off in the hands of individuals than the government, etc. etc. Anyone who doesn't believe that is not a conservative.
