Ron Paul Excluded from Iowa Debate

Your action is needed!!!

It comes directly from Ron Paul's Campaign:
<< Ron Paul Excluded in Iowa >>

Iowans for Tax Relief and Iowa Christian Alliance will host a presidential candidates forum on Saturday, June 30th in Des Moines. Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Sam Brownback, Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, Tommy Thompson, and Tom Tancredo will participate.

Ron Paul, however, will not participate. Why? Because he wasn't invited.

We heard about this forum from numerous supporters in Iowa who asked why Dr. Paul was not going to participate. Those supporters assumed that Dr. Paul was invited.

The campaign office had not received an invitation so we called this morning; thinking we might have misplaced the invitation or simply overlooked it. Lew Moore, our campaign manager, called Mr. Edward Failor, an officer of Iowans for Tax Relief, to ask
about it. To our shock, Mr. Failor told us Dr. Paul was not invited; he was not going to be invited; and he would not be allowed to participate. And when asked why, Mr. Failor refused to explain. The call ended.

Lew then called Mr. Steve Sheffler, president of the Iowa Christian Alliance, to talk with him. Mr. Sheffler did not answer so Lew left a message. He has yet to respond.

Why are the Iowans for Tax Relief and the Iowa Christian Alliance excluding the one Republican candidate who scored at the top of every online poll taken after the MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN debates? Why are they denying Iowans the opportunity to hear
from the Republican presidential candidate whose popularity is growing by the day?

We couldn't get answers to these questions from Messrs. Failor and Sheffler. Maybe you'll have better luck. Their contact information is below.

It's ironic that on the same day we learned the Iowans for Tax Relief and the Iowa Christian Alliance excluded Dr. Paul from their candidates forum, we received a call from ABC News confirming Dr. Paul's participation in its nationally broadcast August 5th debate to be held in Des Moines.

Dear Mr. Failor,

It has come to my attention that Iowans for Tax Relief is sponsoring a debate with the following Republican presidential candidates: Mitt Romney, Sam Brownback, Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, Tommy Thompson, and Tom Tancredo, I was shocked to learn that Dr. Ron Paul was not invited. It would seem if you are true to your organization's name, Dr. Paul should be at the top of that list. There are some fine conservatives on your guest list but none with the anti tax record anywhere close to Dr. Paul's

Please tell me this was an oversight, and you are preparing to invite Dr. Paul. I am not as familiar with all the candidates but Romney and Huckabee have poor anti-tax records. If Hillary is the Democrat nomination, Ron Paul is the ONLY Republican that can beat Hillary. His experience practicing medicine both before and after Medicare/Medicaid will allow him to checkmate Hillary on her key domestic issue. Ron will best Hillary on the key foreign policy issue. Ron is indeed Hillary's worst nightmare.

Please tell me you plan to invite Dr. Paul, or tell me why he was excluded.

Dear Mr. Sheffler,

It has come to my attention that Iowa Christian Alliance is sponsoring a debate with Republican presidential candidates: Mitt Romney, Sam Brownback, Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, Tommy Thompson, and Tom Tancredo, I was shocked to learn that Dr. Ron Paul was not invited. It would seem if you are true to your organization's name, Dr. Paul should be at the top of that list. There are some fine men on your guest list but none with the prolife consistancy anywhere close to Dr. Paul's

Please tell me this was an oversight, and you are preparing to invite Dr. Paul. I am not as familiar with all the candidates but Romney and Huckabee have been on the pro choice side. If Hillary is the Democrat nomination, Ron Paul is the ONLY Republican that can beat Hillary. His experience practicing medicine both before and after Medicare/Medicaid will allow him to checkmate Hillary on her key domestic issue. Ron will best Hillary on the key foreign policy issue. Ron is indeed Hillary's worst nightmare.
