Ron Paul using Spam Emails to Get Out Message

I’ve been receiving spam messages today supporting presidential candidate Ron Paul - all from unreal email addresses. One was even from a fake CompuServe email address. What a throwback. Turns out CompuServe is still in business as part of Netscape. Who knew?

Anyway, the spam messages have no website links, so they are getting through the filters handily. One wonders if Ron Paul’s enemies are behind this - since the messages make him look about as bad as a Presidential candidate can look. Typical of the type of rhetoric Paul supporters rant about, as I recently wrote about, the message is filled with wild claims, poor grammar, and the inability to stop long enough (or breathe) for a paragraph break.

However, they seem so real because they reference every pro-Paul argument I’ve heard. So, maybe the Ron Paul campaign (which is about as decentralized as a terrorist cell) is allowing this to continue by not corralling their shock troops and condemning it. That is, assuming they aren’t directly responsible for it.

The subject line reads: “Vote Ron Paul 2008! BOfLekx”. Here’s what the spam says:

Ron Paul is for the people, unless you want your children to have human implant RFID chips, a National ID card and create a North American Union and see an economic collapse far worse  than the great depression. Vote for Ron Paul he speaks the  truth and the media and government is afraid of him. This is the last honest politican left to bring this country out of this rut from the War Profiteers and bush Administration has created. Get motivated America, don’t believe the lies of the media he has also WON the GOP Debate On Sunday! Value Freedom and Liberty instead of corporate lies and corruption. Bypass  this media blackout they are doing to Ron Paul, tell your family  and friends and get involved in a local group at make  your voice heard! He will end the War In Iraq immediately,  He will eliminate the IRS and wasteful government spending, and  eliminate the Federal Reserve and restore power to the people  and the only person not a member on the CFR. Can any other runner  make these claims or give Americans the true freedom we were all raised to believe? We are all economic slaves to the banks and the illegal federal Reserve. This is why our currency is worth nothing because of Hidden Inflation Tax and the IRS taking everything you make!


He has NEVER voted: * to raise taxes * for an unbalanced budget * to raise congressional pay * for a federal restriction on gun ownership * to increase the power of the executive branch

He HAS voted: * against the Iraq war * against the inappropriately named USA PATRIOT act * against regulating the internet * against the Military Commissions Act

He will eliminate the IRS, Wasteful Government Spending &  Stop The Iraq War Immediately!

Most importantly, he voted NO on anything in Congress that  is not allowed by the Constitution. And he Despises any politican that does not do their job for the people and lives up to the constitution! & Search: “Ron Paul” Join The Revolution!

*************************************** We Need A Real President That Will Restore And Protect Americans! Stop The War! Protect Our Borders! *********VOTE RON PAUL 2008************


Yes, it looks as bad as it really is. I love the liberal use of bullet points in an effort to make it readable. But, when you are running a revolution, who has time for typography, grammar, or readability? Like the hand-created magic marker campaign signs for Ron Paul that have been posted around my town, the revolution apparently stops for nothing. Not even to make a good first impression.

And yes, that little “zdznct” is part of the message along with the “BOfLekx” in the subject line. It’s probably some clever way to gank the Patriot Act spy computers that monitor emails on the internet. In the eyes of a Ron Paul fanatic, it could be a sort of secondary benefit while educating the masses about Ron Paul’s great attributes.

I guess this email has finally done the trick. Apparently, I better vote for Ron Paul or else, as I’m sure Paul supporters will be quick to point out, I’m actually voting for my children to be implanted with human RFID devices. No one else could possibly stop that from happening. Only Ron Paul, a congressman from Texas.

Come to think of it, in this day and age, maybe putting RFID devices on my children might not be such a bad idea. Now, if only it could log all their activity into a massive database-driven website so I can see where they’ve been all day. Then, I’ll know who really made a mess out of the legos in the hallway. Remember those Family Circus cartoons where you could follow the dotted line and see where little Billy wandered all day? Imagine doing that from work over the internet with your own children! I’m all for it.

I’ve received three of these spam messages today, all from three different fake email addresses and fake people. I listen to talk radio all day as I work, and I often hear Ron Paul supporters call in to tell the hosts that they “should support Ron Paul”. They tend to sound much like this email.

Interesting, I am an organizer for a group of 200+ volunteers, I am on the official campaign mailing list, on several other National Ron Paul mailing lists and have passed out 4 of my email addresses very liberally over the last 4 months - and I have not gotten ONE SINGLE email even remotely close to the email presented in these claims.

My guess? You people frequent sites that hate Ron Paul, especially Free Republic. Every single one of the receivers, I bet, are members of Free Republic. And I can just about guess who started this crap.

Well, guess what? When we track down who is doing it, we are going to be looking to press charges for the Joe Job, for libel, and defamation of character. These people are walking on thin ice with their little “war” on Ron Paul (yes, they clearly announced before all this started up that they were declaring war on us.)

Keep it coming, folks. The more evidence, the better. The more instances of crime committed, the better! Please don’t stop doing it.

Again, it appears the ONLY people receiving these emails are people that have accounts at sites where the mods are unfriendly to Ron Paul.

And again, what they are doing is classified as a crime.

@Scott: Apparently, your organization is out of touch. See my latest post which demonstrates not only the reality of these spam emails, but the tepid, lukewarm, and delayed response from the RP Campaign.

Also, are you suggesting that forum moderators who are favorable to Ron Paul could be punishing those who have said negative things about Paul? I find the idea absurd. But, more absurd than that idea is your subtle suggestion here that such a course of action by them would not be unwarranted.

For the record, I’ve never posted anything about Ron Paul other than at my own blog here. And that, just a few weeks prior. And I don’t even want to know what Free Republic is… I can guess just from the sound of it. Your comment is the first I’ve heard of it.

Ron Paul supporter: get over it - dont go suing anybody - I like Ron Paul because his message stands for itself and he would really help lead the country based on logical argument - congress is where stuff gets done so anything too radical he wants to do (and is needed) will get diluted anyway. This spam got him name recognition if nothing else and frankly that text up there wasn’t that bad. Storm in a tea cup…

I support Ron Paul based on what I hear him say in interviews on youtube and other places and his own writings, not on someone else’s spin of what he says. Every candidate has supporters who have ideas or tactics that they dont endorse. Ron Paul has inspired passion in alot of people who have never been involved in campaigns and feel he is providing a message that is ignored by the mainstream media. They may try to find some unusual ways to get across a good message. This spamming may also be a tactic by his enemies to make Paul look bad. Notice how people blame Paul for what he has no involvement in. Ron Paul has alot of grass roots support while other candidates may have mostly corporate or special interest sponsored support. Grass roots support is a good thing showing people are independently coming to their own conclusions about something.

I think that since there is no “rules” that some might spam and that could come from either side honestly. Some might try and help even though it could be hurting the cause.
