RON PAUL U.S.A. | August 6, 2012
The GOP rejected Ron Paul a long time ago. Ron Paul is not a Republican. Perhaps he represents what the Republican Party "should" be, but he certainly does not represent the GOP as it stands today. Amen!!
We know that Ron Paul is 100% against the wars, period. Even more, he is against our meddling and involvement in non-military foreign affairs. He wants to cut our military spending (not defence) and shrink our presence around the world. This certainly is not in-line with the GOP's view of the world.
We also know that Ron Paul is against government involvement in our lives, period. He does not want the government to tell people how to live, what to think, what God to believe in, or what to put in their bodies. He does not want the government involved in marriage, gay or straight. This certainly is not in-line with the GOP's mentality, which seeks to push a Christian belief system on all Americans. Perhaps our country would be a better place if we all were Christian's, but it is not the government's role to push us toward that vision.
Finally, Ron Paul is a real fiscal conservative. He believes in spending cuts that will make a difference in the future of our country. Republicans are only willing to talk about marginal spending cuts, but in reality will not do anything other than increase the size of the debt.
No, Ron Paul is not a Republican, and never has been. We should take this election cycle to educate our family and friends about what it means to be a Libertarian. Pick one or two issues to focus on, perhaps the wars and the debt, and explain to them the truth about the plan Mitt Romney has for American, and the real solutions of Ron Paul.
