I written a number of posts concerning Ron Paul’s newsletter problem over at OTB over the last couple of week.  My basic conclusion in regards to Paul (whom I flirted with considering voting for in the primary) is as follows:  the bottom line is this:  absent an especially comprehensive and satisfactory explanation, the newsletters utterly disqualify Paul from the nomination, let alone the White House.  Having spent a substantial amount of time researching, reading, writing, and arguing concerning this matter, I can reach no other conclusion.

All of my posts on this subject, for those who are interested in my reasoning and/or wish to examine the evidence for themselves are as follows (in chronological order):

  • Ron Paul’s Newsletter Problem
  • More on Paul and the Newsletters
  • A Bit More About the Ron Paul Newsletters
  • If You Need an Example of the Ron Paul Newsletter
  • More Examples of the Ron Paul Newsletters
  • Even More Ron Paul Newsletter Scans
  • Libertarian History and the Paul Newsletters
  • Ron Paul: Not So Much Denial Back in the 1990s (Plus: Newsletters 101)
