Singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie yesterday issued a statement backing the presidential candidacy of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas.I guess Arlo missed this stuff (an excellent compilation of Paul's involvement with the white power movement), or maybe Woody's son is just an idiot.
"I love this guy," said Guthrie in the statement. "Dr. Paul is the only candidate who would have signed the Constitution of the United States had he been there.
"I'm with him because he seems to be the only candidate who actually believes it has as much relevance today as it did a couple of hundred years ago."
Paul is the only Republican candidate who has endorsed an immediate withdrawal of United States troops from Iraq. He has also pledged to reduce the federal budget to its bare bones. He is opposed to free trade agreements, supports the anti-abortion movement and believes in the right to keep and bear arms.
Paul also supports securing the nation's borders from illegal immigrants and also favors improved funding for veterans' services.
