Ron Paul Gets Celebrity Endorsement From John Mayer: Video Debate
By Josh Hart

Guitar master John Mayer is very excited about Ron Paul and he's willing to go toe-to-toe with the "Apple Guy" (that would be actor Justin Long) in the streets of Hollywood to get his point across. This may be the first celebrity endorsement for the good doctor. For those right now that are saying "who is Ron Paul" you are not alone. Paul is a Republican candidate for president that polls near the bottom of every conventional poll, but he has a strong dedicated following on the World Wide Web.
For Ron Paul supporters that are wondering who the hell in John Mayer he is an outstanding guitar player and it appears an avid supporter. In the video Mayer screams at Long to check out the candidate and lectures the star of the Apple Computer commercials to "read the Constitution." It isn't clear on the short video that shows the debate online who Justin is supporting but it doesn't appear to be Dr. Paul.
The video is here and is rather amusing and Mayer's antics in the "debate" pretty much sums up every Ron Paul supporter I have ever heard from. Though Mayer's rant is a bit wild eyed and crazy, they both leave together in the same vehicle so all is well. For those that wish to follow John Mayer's suggestion and find out more about Ron Paul his website is here.
Paul appears to have the angry white guitarist vote sewn up. Here's Paul on the issues - on immigration he says no amnesty, and end birthright citizenship. On the war in Iraq: Bring the troops home, no future wars without the authorization of Congress.
On guns: Opposes most gun control measures; believes guns should be allowed on college campuses, national parks and with pilots. On taxes: Eliminate the IRS and Federal Reserve; supports eliminating the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Education. On abortion, he is Pro-life.
