image for Ron Paul Banned by Iowans for Tax Relief
The taxpayers' best friend

DES MOINES (FMLiveWire) -- Iowans for Tax Relief (ITR) are holding a presidential debate June 30th in Des Moines and only one Republican candidate was not invited to the nationally televised debate, even though Congressman Ron Paul is the best friend the American taxpayer has in Washington, DC.

Ron Paul is a free-market economist and advocates classical liberal beliefs in Congress. He is anti-foreign war, anti-tax, pro-growth and a proponent of the free market and small government. His stance runs counter to the current pro-war Bush-Cheney big government policies and the policies of other presidential candidates.

The ITR decision is also astonishing since Ron Paul has been recognized as the best advocate for taxpayers in the US Congress for the tenth year in a row. Paul received the National Taxpayers Union's annual award as the "Taxpayers' Friend" for 2006.

Ed Faggor, Executive Vice President of ITR claims the reason for the decision to exclude Ron Paul is that he "is not a credible candidate."

"Ron Paul is not credible because he is not a warmongering neoconservative Zionist perv like Republicans here and in the White House," he said.

Faggor said that the ITR along with the loony-tunes Iowa Christian Alliance put their debate together, paradoxically excluding Ron Paul who has actively worked to eliminate the IRS and end income tax completely and will continue do so if president.

Paul also wants to terminate the US Federal Reserve, the sleazy bankers that are able to print unlimited amounts of US dollars, thereby debasing the currency, raising prices, and hurting the poor and the middle class with this inflation tax.

Paul has also never voted to raise taxes or voted for an unbalanced budget. He has never voted for any form of government spending not authorized by the US constitution.

Faggor admitted that he is the Senior Advisor to the John McCain campaign, and also points out that Iowans for Tax Relief are not credible, and are not seeking tax relief for all.

Iowans for Tax Relief actually supports special interest handouts and corporate welfare tax subsidies that shrink the tax base and raise the taxes for the rest of the people.

Meanwhile the Ron Paul campaign responded to this attempt to silence him by holding a rally of its own.

As soon as the ITR Presidential Forum is over, Ron Paul will deliver his message of freedom, peace, and prosperity to Iowans.
