Ron Paul supports the beliefs America was built on, and the mainstream news networks attack him for these ideas almost every appearance.
He said it best in the introduction of his newest book,
When liberty is under attack, everything we hold dear is under attack. Governments, by their very nature, notoriously compete with liberty, even when
the stated purpose for establishing a particular government is to protect liberty.
And now my rant on why Paul is our only hope.
The Fathers of the Constitution understood this very idea, that societies need to be governed, but at the same time, governments will not always act
in the better interests of the people they are governing. This is the very reason the Constitution was created, to set limits on the Government. As
America continues into it's 3rd century of existence it has become very clear that in the last 235 years, the American government has systematically
become more powerful; whether it be legislation, executive orders or supreme court rulings. Once a government has this power it only takes a few men
(ie Bush, Cheney, Rummy) to realize the power they have been granted. Once a single administration recognizes the Unconstitutional acts it can get
away with, every administration after will push the limits of their power (ie Obama & co).
Paul has made it very clear through his voting record and numerous interviews that he intends on instilling laws and policies that are Constitutional.
I doubt he can do it in his lifetime, but it is absolutely necessary someone lead the people down the right path. Right now, in my honest opinion,
Dr. Paul is the only man in Washington with the support and recognition that can set us down this path.
Thanks for your time, 'Constitution' is an annoying word to type so many times.
