What we're about
This group participates in local as well as national politics. We are interested in supporting candidates who promote a non-interventionist foreign policy, sound monetary policy, an audit of the Federal Reserve and economic policies that provide the greatest value for the majority of people. From time to time we have speakers, debate viewing parties and gatherings to discuss ways to improve the Democratic Party and take action. Prior to a primary we will support particular candidates that champion these policies. We feel getting involved in primary elections of both major parties is one of the best ways to strengthen the Democratic Party. Come join!
Blue Republicans is a project that supports Ron Paul in the GOP primary. Since Democrats will not have a presidential primary in 2012, we encourage those who have not yet registered with the Board of Elections to register as Republican for one year only to vote for Ron Paul in the GOP primary on April 24, 2012.
Why Ron Paul?
For 30 years, Ron Paul's approach to republican democracy has been consistent, principled and rooted in the U.S. Constitution. He has worked to understand and honor the supreme law of the land and the freedoms it protects for all citizens. He was true to his oath to uphold the Constitution even when doing so was unpopular with his own Party.
Ron Paul's speeches, votes, books and articles demonstrate his commitment to individual liberty, a non-interventionist foreign policy, sound monetary policy, free market capitalism and Constitutional government. His prescient warnings about the dangers of rejecting Constitutional policies can be seen in some of the following speeches/videos --
warned against inflating the Housing bubble and the catastrophic burst that would result (2003) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9S3lXDOQ7ec)
advised Congress against voting for Iraq War Resolution and preemptive war policy (2002)
warned Fed Chairman about dangers of artificially inflating markets (2007) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pEiLHnjAiw&feature=related)
voted against passage of the Patriot Act (2002) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7qvpS5zbqA)
encouraged Congress to uphold liberty & Fourth Amendment during airport checks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6accgZXTXWg)
