I have been hesitant to really jump into the Presidential debate because of, quite frankly, the lack of candidates. The debate has been largely dominated on the socialist left by the Clintons and Obamas of the world, who are wholy unnacceptable. John Edwards is a joke, and a possible enemy of the American economy.
On the right you have Rudy and McCain, who are seemingly in a contest to see who can be the most liberal, and Fred Thompson is somewhere in the wilderness while crowds stand outside Jerusalem with palm branches in hand.
Then I began to seriously check out Ron Paul’s (R-TX) bid for the White House.
Sure, he’s not the sexy pick. But his platform honors liberty, American sovreignty, and personal freedom. I would urge you to check it out.
Here is the rundown:
Debt/Taxes: The lower, the better.
American Sovreignty: NAFTA, etc. are a threat to our national independence.
War: War’s not evil, but Iraq was one big oopsy. Let’s do our thing and get out.
Border Security: Why fight terrorists abroad if we let them in the back yard? Secure borders…
Privacy: “The biggest threat to your privacy is the government”. ‘Nuf said.
Property Rights/Imminent Domain: we must respect each citizens right to the pursuit of property.
That’s it in a nutshell, but do visit his campaign site. For We the People it is time to get the word out on a candidate that actually might know we are the boss
