support of the following Iowa small business owners who stand with Dr.
Paul and offer the following statements.
Matthew Schneider employs 35 people at his video game and movie
retailer, Digital Dog Pound, serving Waverly city residents for over 11
years. He has thrown his support behind Dr. Paul
because he believes, “We need an honest, principled leader in the White
House. We need the Republican Party to return to its conservative
constitutional roots. Dr. Paul is one of the few politicians who
understand economics, and how to address our economic crisis. Ron
Paul is a true statesman and is America’s last hope to restore America.”
Business partners Cassandra Hansen and David Birchmier operate MPA
Computers, a firm that employs seven people and serves hundreds of
clients in the Bloomfield-Ottumwa area. The couple has been in
business three years, and together they explain, “Ron Paul is my
president because he stands for liberty, follows the Constitution, and
seeks to limit the government’s power over my money and business
decisions. As a small business owner, I see the importance of
fixing our debt crisis and reducing government spending. I
support him also because he is for limited government and
for fixing the source of the problem, not doing more of the same thing
that created the issues in the first place. He predicted every
economic crisis and bubble before they happened. Ron Paul is a
man of principle, and unquestioned integrity.”
Businesswoman Jennifer Elliott owns “A New You” in Coralville and
“Inches-A-Weigh” in Cedar Rapids. She’s been operating for over
six years now and has employed between six and 20 employees over the
course of her business. Ms. Elliott is confident a President Paul
will eliminate the national debt and reign in the Federal Reserve, and
shares her optimism.
“Our country needs to pay less in taxes and create more jobs so small
business owners like me can succeed. Ron Paul’s voting record is
consistent and constitutional. These principles made our country
great and they will make it great once again. I support Dr. Paul
most of all as a mother of two young children because I believe in his
values and that he is the only candidate who will institute real change
in our nation,” said Ms. Elliott.
These statements conclude with comments from 18-year small business
owner and employer of five, Jeremy Goemaat, President of LogicBox Inc.
in West Des Moines.
is the only presidential candidate who precisely predicted our world’s
financial predicament. Examine his wise solutions that are backed
historical context and a solid moral foundation, and you will see why
more and more people are waking up to the message of this true founding
father of our time,” said Mr. Goemaat.
The above business owners are universally enthusiastic in their desire
to spread the word about the Ron Paul
campaign, who they call the only candidate who will restore America
