If wrong, please correct me here. Ron Paul is certainly not a subject matter that i know much about. However, i am presuming he is anti abortion and
anti gay marriage? (amongst other things). For my thinking, this would preclude him from entry on any shortlist for a Nobel Peace prize. If i am wrong
on that though, then fair enough, by all means get him nominated.
His Foreign policy is a damn site better than many i have seen over the years!
This is really, really sad.
Its terrible you see, because we live most of our lives in front of television sets and we believe so much in groups of other people instead of
ourselves, that we lose sight of the idea that just because we have personal beliefs, we wish to impose our beliefs on other people.
Ron Paul has a personal belief that he doesn't believe abortion is right. It doesn't mean he imposes that belief on other people. Abortion is a very
touchy issue and he believes it is a state matter and something the federal government should have no say in. That way, if a woman believes her body
is her own, then she can move to a state where abortion is legalized, and pro life women can move to a state where abortion is treated as a crime. It
is a choice in a free nation, and it is in my opinion, the best we can do right now with the issue. LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE. He has also stated many
times that his faith is very personal to him as well. He knows what it means to be an individual with liberties in this country, and sadly many do
not. He believes that marriage is between you, your faith, and your creator, and the federal government should not be involved with matters of
Glad I could clear that up for you.
