Is Ron Paul too old?

December 11, 2011

Is Ron Paul too old?  Many insist that the 2012 presidential candidate is just too far over the hill, but how old is too old? 

At age 76, is the Texas congressman and White House contender really that old?  Old enough to be declared too old?

Ron Paul will be 77 years old on Inauguration Day in 2013 --- a full seven years older than Ronald Reagan was when he took the Oath of Office for the first time.

Once elected, President Ronald Paul would become an octogenerian during his first presidential term.  For that reason alone, some say that Ron Paul is way too old.

  • Congressman Paul is too old to memorize canned speeches of deception, distraction and thinly disguised contempt for The People.
  • Ron Paul is too old to kiss the backsides of fleeting power brokers who promise him a bright future for simply bending his principles.
  • The Republican candidate is too old for crash-courses in Magnetic Presidentiality, Transactional Harlotry or Constitutional Castration.
  • Rep. Ron Paul is too old to see past the wisdom, truth, experience and convictions which he stubbornly clings to in his advanced years.
  • The septuagenarian Republican challenger is too far over-the-hill to engage in double-speak, half-truths, white lies or black masses.
Congressman Ron Paul serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, the House Committee on Financial Services, and the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee. 

Additionally, he is the chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology.

According to his critics, however, Ron Paul is "too old" and "out of touch" to publicly comment with credibility on American foreign policy and U.S. monetary policy.

That doesn't even make sense.

Ron Paul is just as dated, out of touch, on the fringe, out to lunch and irrelevant in today's mainstream as are The Constitution, the Founding Fathers, liberty, freedom and God Almighty.

That is true, regardless of which angle Ron Paul is viewed from.

Rep. Paul continues to win polls, debates, votes and buzz, yet his detractors declare that he has no real chance of being elected.  Why then does the Ron Paul for President 2012 campaign draw more supporters every day?

It may just be the unchecked criticism, age discrimination and slander against Ron Paul that is getting too old, not the candidate.
