Take a look around at this country today. Do you think it resembles the kind of country that the founding fathers aimed to establish? We have land confiscation to be sold to corporations; imprisonment without charges; torture; pre-emptive war under false pretenses; the Federal Reserve’s inflation; IRS domestic terrorism; deficit spending financed by China; and a dollar that is continuing a freefall in value. We have loss of sovereignty through GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, the UN. We have a secretive movement to establish a North American Union to integrate the US with Mexico and Canada. We have the government taxing you and I to pay for the welfare of illegal aliens. Meanwhile the government wants to force you to get a National ID Card so that the law enforcement can Gestapo you for your “papers” at a whim.

This is not what the founding fathers wanted for America. But there is only one candidate for president who is right on all those issues. He stands for the Constitution. He stands for personal liberty, as granted us by our Creator. He wants sound money and a humble foreign policy. He wants fair trade instead of managed trade for the benefit of insiders. He wants a small, fiscally responsible government. He wants to get the government out of manipulating your health care. And he supports your right to bear arms. He has been referred to as the founding father of our time. And, John McCain once said — before he vied for president — that this man is the most honest man in Washington. The man I am speaking of is Ron Paul. If you want your country back then vote for Ron Paul for president. And let freedom ring, as it did in 1787.

Ron Paul is the only real friend of the Constitution out there. Romney has shown in many instances that he doesn’t understand many of its provisos; he’s running out of people to pander to. McCain is a liberal in conservative clothing, who doesn’t care if we are in Iraq for 100 years. Giuliani is a joke; I get the urge to do a stiff-arm salute whenever I hear him bloviate.
There was no problem with Islamic fundamentalism in Iraq until we got there. We have brought a terrible scourge on the Iraqi people. However, when we leave, it will get better, not worse, as some are saying.
Here’s a quote from an article I just read. ‘Sometimes the best way to understand a position is by contrast, so here is another amazing video of Dr. Paul getting it right on Iraq, back in 2002. Not only does he denounce the war, since “Iraq poses no threat to the United States,” but notes that pre-emptive war is an incredibly dangerous concept, and this aggression would be unique in American history. Finally, he correctly notes that Iraq is an impoverished third-world nation with no Air Force or Navy, that hasn’t hit a single one of our fighters enforcing the UN no fly zone, even after thousands of sorties.’
As for Ron Paul being a dark horse, well, he finished second in Nevada, and will no doubt continue to do well. We could quibble on the meaning of “morally abandoning Israel,” though I hardly think that giving billions of dollars every year in foreign aid to Israel’s putative enemies Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Pakistan counts as a pro-Israel foreign policy. Speaking of Pakistan, we are about to see some massive blowback from our policies over there in the last decade. Propping up a military dictatorship in the name of fighting terrorism is immoral and un-American. They are practically in a civil war already, and much of it has to do with fundamentalist anger at our irreponsible foreign policy. If only more politicians could see the value, as Washington did, of avoiding foreign entanglements.

By the way, I believe that, like “overpopulation” in the seventies, the belief that man’s activities are driving global warming is a leftist, secular pseudo-religion being forced on decent people everywhere. If we were truly serious about combatting it, we’d unleash the full powers of the free market. Instead, we get corn ethanol subsidies (but high tariffs against Brazilian ethanol, mind you!), and calls for greater government regulation of emissions. Who suffers? You and me, that’s who.

Another awesome video

Jack Cafferty talks about the fact that Ron Paul’s platform is what Americans want, they just haven’t heard him because many elements in the media are trying to squelch him.

My endorsement for 2008

29 December 2007

If you’ve ever visited my blog before, you know I support Ron Paul for president. I have become so convinced that he is absolutely the best man for the job that I’ve decided to write to everyone I know, personally, and ask them to vote for Ron Paul. I’m starting with my family, then friends.

My support for Dr. Paul has nothing to do with a cult of personality; indeed, I believe that as president he would actually work to scale back executive power, which is not only disproportionately large under the current administration, but is being exercised extremely poorly. In this regard, I think that a vote for any of the other so-called “front runners” next year would just be a vote for a new flavor of authoritarianism. I’m including a link to the Candidates@Google interview with Dr. Paul, because it is the most informative and wide-ranging I’ve seen. I don’t know how anyone could watch this video, think about the positions that he advocates, and not want this man to become the 44th president of the United States, and restore the ideals of the republic that our Founding Fathers set up.

MLK Day 2008

22 December 2007

Why not have the next Ron Paul fundraising day on Martin Luther King day? Seems there would be plenty of scope for linking him to the freedom platform, and it might go a long way towards disabusing people of the notion that Dr. Paul is somehow sympathetic to the white supremacists.
