We are people who never before thought of joining the Republican party, but are doing so in 2012 to ensure that Ron Paul wins the Republican nomination for President.
Most of us used to identify as Democrats or Independents and/or supported Obama in 2008. We believe that on issues that matter most – war vs. peace (Iraq, Yemen etc.), civil liberties (Patriot Act, National Defense Authorization Act etc.), and crony corporatism (bank bailouts, monetary system etc.) – Obama has pursued a course similar to George Bush. Our reasoning is laid out in this article by Robin Koerner on the Huffington Post that “went viral”, coining the term “Blue Republicans” for those of more liberal sensibilities who are registering Republican specifically for Ron Paul.
Contrary to lies spread by some opponents of Ron Paul, we are a grass-roots movement, not sponsored by any individual, and not some clever ruse to get Barack Obama re-elected. Rather, we believe firmly in the possibility of a Ron Paul victory in a match-up with Obama, and are working hard to ensure that happens.
If you doubt it, please read Robin Koerner’s myriad articles and contact him through this site with any remaining questions.
