The Compassion Of Dr. Ron Paul

Ron Paul is a racist, you say? And he wants Americans to die without healthcare?!

I guess that’s why in the ‘70s he helped a mixed race couple deliver their baby when they were turned away by the hospital—and he made sure that they didn’t have to pay a bill! Only a sociopathic racist bigot would do such a thing!

The super PAC supporting Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) in his presidential campaign released a powerful 2-minute web ad this morning designed to hit back at stories about racist comments in newsletters with Paul's name on them that appeared in the 80's and 90's. The ad, produced by Revolution PAC, stars James Williams, a black man from Matagorda County, Texas. Williams says that when he took his wife -- who is white -- to the hospital in the early 70's, the hospital staff ignored her.

"Then Ron Paul came to my rescue. He just stepped in and went to work with my wife," Williams says, relating the story of how Paul delivered their stillborn child and made sure the Williams family never received a bill.

"He think of one human being just as much as the other. He's just an honest man and that's something we need now in this day and time. It's a lot of politics and no honesty," Williams says, transitioning to a political message. "When you have honesty, well, people will try to do anything to try to blot you out, and that's what they will try to do to him, is blot him out, because he will be honest, and we need more like him.
