Kelly Clarkson endorses Ron Paul via Twitter

American Idol Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson has endorsed Texas Rep. Ron Paul for the United States presidency. In her 41-word Twitter post dated December 29, Clarkson, a native of the Lone Star State, wrote that she “liked” Paul a lot during the 2008 Republican primaries even if “no one” gave the Libertarian-leaning candidate a chance.

Clarkson stated that Paul will have her vote if he becomes the Republican nominee though she added: “Too bad he probably won’t.”

Shortly after her public announcement, Clarkson posted a lengthy response to criticisms raised against her announcement of support for Paul:

Man, my eyes have been opened to so much hate tonight. If y’all ever disagree with something I say please don’t feel the need to attack me. I will listen to what you say and any articles or viewpoints you have when you say it with respect.

Being hateful is not a healthy way to get people to see or hear you. I was raised to respect people and their decisions and beliefs and I hope you will grant me the same decency. If you don’t agree with me simply unfollow me. It’s really that easy. I hope you don’t because I would love the chance to hear what you have to say but if you’re so blinded by hate you can’t seek peace and progress then that is your unfortunate prerogative.”

The Texas GOP primary is scheduled on April 24, 2012. Clarkson’s endorsement comes on the same day Kent Sorenson, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann’s campaign manager in Iowa, announced that he is defecting to the Ron Paul camp merely six days before the Hawkeye State holds its caucuses on January 3.
