Why I Support Ron Paul for President
First, Ron Paul is the only limited government, lower taxes candidate. He has never voted to increase taxes and desires to cut government spending and taxes needed to support the spending. You cannot increase government (whether it is "infrastructure" as used by the Big Spenders, or transfer payments and subsidies,) and expect to lower taxes.
Ron Paul supports real free trade not more governmental organizations such as NAFTA, GATT, CAFTA, etc. Free trade is simple... we won't tax imports and other countries do not tax our exports.
War and Foriegn Policy
The war in Iraq was sold to us with false information. The area is more dangerous now than when we entered it. We destroyed a regime hated by our direct enemies, the jihadists, and created thousands of new recruits for them. We have no business making "regime changes" and trying to knock down or prop up other governments. We are not and can never be the policemen of the world.
The biggest threat to personal liberty is the government. We must limit the ability of the government to collect and store data about citizens' personal matters. Every government agency restricts individual choice. We need to cut back on government and increase personal freedom. The Constitution has a very limited role for the Federal government. Washington has no business being involved with education, abortion, religion, race relations, housing, etc. These are the rights left to the individuals and the states.
Yes, Ron Paul CAN WIN
The so-called "practical" political commentators say that Ron Paul can't win so we should unite behind a "winner" even if we do not support their views. This is the old "unite for unity" trap and is akin to Machiavelli's "the end justifies the means" argument. Let's vote for the best person...Ron Paul for President in 2008!
