Ron Paul’s Personal Security August 19, 2011
Currently there are no federal government funds to provide for the security for presidential primary candidates, excepting President Obama. The only time funds become available is 120 days prior to the general election and only for major candidates.
Many have or should have concerns for the safety for presidential candidate Ron Paul. This concern should be heightened as he is reform candidate who is critical of the status quo policies and aims to make long overdue political and economic changes. Now is not the time to be naïve.
Although only a few know the full strength of Paul’s campaign paid for security detail it appears to be deficient. He appeared to have two men within the immediate area on the Iowa Straw Poll vote day. This is clearly not enough.
He needs to beef up his entourage now as his life is in jeopardy. Further, the cause is in jeopardy. Additionally, enhanced security will also make him appear more presidential and ready for the job.
His time, our time and the nation’s time has come. He is the one. He needs donation money for security and needs to use it now.
