I meant to write this article something like a month ago, but somehow it slipped past me. Not a surprise when blogging takes a bit of effort, at least for me. Anyway. Earlier this year I wrote an article that Ron Paul, a representative from Texas, was exploring the possibility of running for President in 2008. Well, it’s official – he’s decided to run for the biggest seat in the house. According to his recent updates, his fundraising and awareness campaigns are going well. I’m still a little frustrated that the media is still in full-blown blackout mode – but I guess that’s what I’ve come to expect from our hegemonic and complicit media.
One of the things I like most about Ron Paul is that he tells it how it is. He makes no bones about informing the people and fellow Congress about the Federal Reserve, the Internal Revenue Service, anti-freedom legislation, and the erosion of American sovereignty. His credibility, research and informed leadership is exactly what this nation needs. We must figure out a way to “fight terrorism” without further devastation to civil liberties, human rights and America’s founding document, the Constitution.
Ron Paul is also a voice against the formation of a North American Union. Despite the fact that most Americans are not familiar with the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America and it’s consequence of forming a North American Union, there is very much an effort going on to erode the sovereignty of America in favor of a unionization between Canada, America and Mexico. If you’ve followed what has happend with the European Union, the individual countries are being forced to give up their own founding principles in favor of a unionized “Constitution” that effectively makes each nation subservient to the Union’s federalization. Not to mention…to oppose it, by it’s very words makes you suspect. What? Are you against prosperity and security? Who are you? This is by design and the same thing was done with the Patriot Act. Now…you’re not a patriot, are you? There’s much more going on here than fancy wordplay – right now, there is a focused push for global governance and further centralization of power. Ron Paul is not only too aware of this…but also recognizes why it’s not good for nations, especially ours.
As I don’t like to speak for people, generally speaking, I will provide some info from his website. These are the focal points of his campaign:
Working Americans like lower taxes. So do I. Lower taxes benefit all of us, creating jobs and allowing us to make more decisions for ourselves about our lives. (more…)
So called free trade deals and world governmental organizations like the International Criminal Court (ICC), NAFTA, GATT, WTO, and CAFTA are a threat to our independence as a nation. (more…)
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. (more…)
The talk must stop. We must secure our borders now. A nation without secure borders is no nation at all. It makes no sense to fight terrorists abroad when our own front door is left unlocked. This is my six point plan: (more…)
The biggest threat to your privacy is the government. We must drastically limit the ability of government to collect and store data regarding citizensâ€™ personal matters. (more…)
We must stop special interests from violating property rights and literally driving families from their homes, farms and ranches. (more…)
I really do believe he’s our last chance of retaining our freedom and sovereignty, the indirect casualty of the “war on terror” and the neo-con / neo-liberal agendists that have hijacked this nation. I’m trying to get the word out because our media is failing to inform the people and people should be informed in their vote. In the interest of the future of America, please step outside the box and check out Ron Paul. I hope that you will find wisdom, knowledge and understanding in his view and realize, whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, Independant or otherwise, that the future of American privacy, liberty and sovereignty is at risk and could be a story we tell to our grandchildren.
