Yeah, I'd call it an exaggeration too...But if compared
to Satan's lesser demons running hogwild in the Halls of Government, Dr. Paul's
"sainthood" wouldn't be much
of an exaggeration.
Granted, I don't agree with all of his opinions either...For example, his Pro-Life stance, as mentioned here recently. As he's been a practicing
doctor for a looong
time, I can understand his position. However, even though I agree that life should
be held sancrosect, a woman must
still have the domain of decision over her own body...That's why I choose Pro-Choice (Even while at the same time, too many people wrongly equate
"pro-choice" with "pro-abortion").
Even so, since such a choice must
be reserved for the woman who is most affected
by such a choice, I also believe that this is not an
issue for the government to decide
in any way, shape or form. From what I know of the Laws of Nature, any species that overpopulates the
environment will be dealt with
according to those same Laws. So what's going to happen to the human race if we allow the government to outlaw
all choices for the human race to try to stabilize its population? Therefore, by the Laws of Nature
the woman must be allowed to choose, not
I'd like to believe that, if discussed in this manner with Ron Paul & considering how Pro-Constitution he really is, he'd see things the same
way...in that it's not for the government to decide, regardless of his own opinion
. Admittedly, I've never heard of anyone discussing it with
him in this way...Any reply of his (in interviews) that I've ever heard about, no one has actually asked him specifically
whether or not he
thought that his Pro-Life stance was ever intended
to be decided by the government.
