I got this piece of Congressman Ron Paul political art via the human links of family & friends: Burt and I enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at my cousin Gabriele Korn’s home “over the hill”, and with a sparkle in her eye, she said she had something for me. She handed me this postcard sized artist’s rendering of Congressman Paul’s likeness–produced by the locally based “Skyline Movement.” And how did she get it? From her chiropractor, Mark Reis, a great guy,who is also my chiropractor (but fortunately I haven’t had to see him recently.)
It’s not unusual to see similar political mailings but this one was not a photograph. This is a piece of genuine art that somebody labored over.
For those who don’t know anything about Congressman Paul, he’s running for President in the Republican primaries–and has stunned conventional political observers with the groundswell of support from people excited by Dr. Paul’s anti-war, pro-Constitution stance.
Thursday night in Palo Alto at the Westin Hotel, Presidential candidate Congressman Ron Paul (at far right, wearing the tie) met and talked with supporters.
Photo below: Kathy McGrade and my longtime companion Burt Blumert discuss the Ron Paul campaign at the Westin Hotel in Palo Alto. Kathy McGrade, who is an engineer and runs her own company, has a strong connection to the Coastside–the La Honda resident once lived on Mirada Road next door to the Bach Society in Miramar. Around that time, the 1970s, she was involved with, what I believe was the very first privately owned rocket-launching company called “Starstruck,” headquartered in Redwood City.
Did you see the Republican Presidential Candidate Debate on MSNBC? With Chris Matthews….Congressman Ron Paul (in photo, center above) stunned everybody by getting higher poll totals on the web than the front-runners.
Congressman Ron Paul (R-Tx) has been an outspoken opponent of the Iraq War since day 1. He’s against most government spending program and is a true American patriot. He actually speaks the truth. And he’s running for President….
If you get a chance, please listen to Ron’s message.
Oh, by the way, your editor June Morrall is on the left of Cong. Ron Paul and to his right stands longtime friend Burt Blumert. Photo was taken some years ago in San Mateo (by photographer Jerry Koontz).
