I want to talk about what Ron Paul is not:
-He is not dishonest. He has taken the same stances on issues dating all the way back through the 80s, and probably earlier. To find out about
these issues, simply check him out on YouTube.
-He is not bought out by big corporations. The vast majority of his campaign contributions come from regular citizens through small donations.
He also has more contributions from active duty military than all other GOP nominees combined! The same cannot be said for others, like Newt Gingrich
and Mitt Romney. Their campaigns are funded by big business- donations which are presumably given so that once that candidate reaches office they
won't forget who took care of them. We can assume that Ron Paul has no private interests to protect except those of the private citizens of the
-He is not willing to compromise when it comes to personal liberty. Legislation like the Patriot Act and the NDAA deprive US citizens of basic
civil liberties granted by the Bill of Rights. The premise for doing this is that government will keep us safe. What we are getting is increasingly a
police state. Ron Paul does not tolerate the government essentially ripping up the Bill of Rights to keep us "safer". He says that everything
requires sacrifice, but that he would rather take the risk of having too much freedom than not enough.
-He is not "unelectable", or a 'fluke' candidate. He is tied for the lead in Iowa and he is second in New Hampshire. These are the first
two states that hold their caucuses. This has all been done despite very little help from the media, who, until recently, has treated him only as a
-He is not radical. Radicals have been increasingly taking power in this country since the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 passed and the interest
of big bankers superseded those of the American people. Ron wants to return the United States back to the principles upon which it was founded, which
essentially makes him the least radical presidential candidate of all.
If you made it this far, thanks for reading, and I hope this helps!
