Ron Paul Endorses Curtis Coleman for Governor of Arkansas

Haven’t we had enough of the Big Government, big spending establishment in BOTH parties taking our nation to the very brink of bankruptcy?

I have.

If you feel the same way, I’d like to introduce you to a principled constitutional conservative running for Arkansas Governor – Republican Curtis Coleman.

Curtis Coleman is a true limited government champion, who is pledging – if elected - to:

*** Join with other states to restore the intended balance of power between the states and the federal government;

*** Resist unconstitutional federal regulations;

*** Aggressively campaign for Arkansas to control development of its own energy resources;

*** Clamp down on wasteful and unnecessary government spending.

He’s also pledged to simplify and lower Arkansas' state taxes and to “get government out of our faces, off our backs, and out of our pocketbooks.”

And he’s not just another career politician mouthing catchphrases to tickle our ears to get elected.

Curtis was the Founding President and CEO of Safe Foods Corporation in North Little Rock Arkansas, retiring in 2009.

He is also Chairman of The Institute for Constitutional Policy.

The syndicated “Coleman Commentary” is heard daily on multiple radio stations in Arkansas, and Curtis is a regular guest on radio shows in Arkansas.

Curtis understands that Big Government's suffocating policies are to blame for Arkansas’ status as one of the poorest states in the country.

I’m excited about Curtis Coleman’s campaign.

And I hope you’ll support him as generously as you can. http://www.curtiscoleman.com/donate
