In response to "Ron Paul will make U.S. great again" (Sept. 3, Letters): We need to get the word out on candidates like Paul who support the United States first and our Constitution. We need to demand from our controlled media why candidates such as Ron Paul, Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich are ignored and are excluded from the televised debates, or rarely called on to participate. What are they so afraid of? Perhaps that the sleeping giant, the American people, is finally waking up, and is ready to fight for the Constitution and sovereignty. These candidates are opposed to such sovereignty-robbing ploys as the national ID card for every citizen and the secret superhighway between Mexico and Canada to form the American Union, and in favor of keeping our military at home where it belongs, protecting our homeland. This is being "an American."
