You may not like every single thing that Ron Paul stands for, but you can trust him. You can trust that he is not running a presidential campaign to fatten his pocketbook or get into the history books. His voting record is spotless (no voting for tax hikes, pay raises for himself, raising the debt ceiling, or unbalanced budgets.) The only thing that people are able to attack him on is that he is unelectable. What does that even mean?...especially since he's been elected to congress 12 times! The only other things that people attack him with are outright ignorance or slander (Iran, isolationist, marijuana...) Please check out what his REAL views are about these issues before quoting CNN.
I sat here tonight wondering if I should write this blog entry at all. "People will think I'm crazy" or "It's too late, because the Mormon has got the nomination wrapped up" or "I'm too tired." Well, I'm not giving up and telling my kids someday that I did nothing to help stand up for what was unpopular but right. The government should follow the Constitution, and the only one with the titanium backbone that is willing to stand against the lobbyists, liberals, and launderers (Fed, banksters) is Ron Paul. So, I made a donation to the Ron Paul campaign and I'm writing this blog entry.
I believe the country is being lead in the wrong direction, and the current leadership along with those leading the Republican polls are driving the country in the same direction. How many of you are extremely excited about
The leadership is a reflection of the people at large, and so if our leadership is poor, then the people at large make poor decisions. So, part of Ron Paul's campaign, and most of the reason that I write this blog entry is to help educate the people, who don't know the depths of the issues or how they affect your family/future.
Ultimately, politics will not save us, but until Christ returns, we should want to live in a country that has the greatest amount of liberty to share the gospel with the greatest effect.
