Ron Paul

31 08 2008

I’m going to make it short and sweet tonight.  I guess I’m moving back to the political front.  It’s an area that I have a lot of interest so it might be a recurring topic in my writing.

Today, I just wanted to point towards a candidate that I wish was running in the general election.  Ron Paul is a Republican candidate with Libertarian leaning values.  I have read and listened to many of his speeches and debates and I am in awe of how intelligent and on the right track this man is.  He takes these complicated government issues and puts them to a simple test.  Does the Constitution of our country say we should do this?  If it doesn’t, then it’s not the government’s place to intervene.  That’s the way our federal government was created to run.  If a right is not explicitly stated in the Constitution as belonging to the federal government, then it is a state’s right and there should be no intervention.  Using this as a litmus test for our federal policies simplifies a lot of issues.
Ron Paul is the type of person that should be running our country.  I only wish that the media and the establishment hadn’t forced him out of the spotlight.  Here’s one of the most popular YouTube video packages on Ron Paul.  Do your research!
