Misja (The Mission)
Misją strony RonPaul.pl jest przybliżenie polskiemu odbiorcy sylwetki kongresmena zza oceanu oraz wartości, na których straży stoi niezłomnie od kilkudziesięcioleci. Nie zapala się bowiem "światła i nie stawia pod korcem, ale na świeczniku, aby świeciło wszystkim".
The mission of the RonPaul.pl is to shed more light at the figure of the congressman from abroad, as well as his values, with which he persistently sticks from the decades ago. For it has been said: "Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house."
Poland is one of many countries outside the U.S. that, despite never having Paul on any ballots, have Ron Paul contingents. The main website, RonPaul.pl, includes information about Ron Paul's campaign, primary dates, even the current time in Texas, where Paul is from. The banner: "Kim jest Ron Paul?" ("Who is Ron Paul?")"
- an excerpt from the article (July 2012) on BuzzFeed: "Ron Paul Revolution follows Romney to Poland"
