It is quite easy to make the case for why we need Ron Paul. Quite honestly, we can’t afford anyone else. Our republic has been in decline for years. One administration after another, Republican and Democratic, have waged an unrelenting assault on our way of life. It has come to the point that many people just blindly accept government involvement in every area of their life; yet most of the government intervention is unconstitutional. There is no constitutional basis for the EPA, the Department of Education, No Child Left Behind, Obamacare, or the Federal Reserve, just to name a few.
I count myself among those who blindly went along for years. During the 2008 election I initially thought Ron Paul was crazy and even an extremist. After watching him in several of the debates, I realized he was making far too much sense to be crazy. The more I researched him, and his issues, the more I had my eyes open to just how far we have strayed from our Founding Fathers’ vision for our great republic. It was with dismay that I realized I had been part of the problem. I am proud to say that in the 2008 primaries I voted for Ron Paul.
In two short years, it is amazing the impact he has had on Washington and the population at large. Now his ideas, like an audit of the Fed, are no longer considered crazy, but are supported by a majority in Washington D.C. and throughout the country. People are openly questioning the hundreds of bases we have spread throughout the world and our weak dollar policy that is stealing the wealth from American families.
I do not believe it is too late to turn this country around but we cannot just stop the erosion of our rights, we have to have a champion in the white house who will fight every minute of every day to restore our Founding Fathers’ vision and the only candidate who has the track record and perseverance to accomplish that is Ron Paul.
Being Catholic, I have a large family, six children, three boys and three girls. I do not want them growing up under an oppressive régime where they can only imagine what freedom felt like and what prosperity was. I support of Ron Paul for President.
