Ron Paul and the rule of law.

Posted by Jesse on December 8, 2007

People just don’t talk about the consitution the way that Ron Paul does. He votes according to whether or not its constitutional, not because of some lobby, or pressure from the party.
Then he proceeds to write and explain his position.

No action by him can ever be construed in a way that would align him with any of these actions listed below. Right now, in the current political climate, The world, and the American Public needs someone that exudes this sense of trust.
Sure, the Dems will call him a Republican, and all the names that come with it. Certain libertarian groups are now out to tarnish his ideas and postition, and certain Republicans have called him ‘liberal’.
So that hasn’t changed. And I doubt it will. Such is the awful part of politics.

But he’s been consistent, and honestly so, for all his time in office. Working hard to protect American liberties. Anyone who reads the founding documents understands that the founders were talking about individual liberty and how best to protect them from tyranny and lawlessness. Both by criminals and government.
“Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”

He had the wisdom and courage to speak on the floor of the House against the way in which we entered Iraq and even talked about what the danger was and what the consequences very well may be. He told his fellow congressmen to follow the constitution by declaring war, at the very least!
He reminded them that we had not been attacked and in contrast have been over there and bombing them for years.
But don’t take my word for it. Read the man yourself! He was right!

Just like he’s been right about the economy

The Winter of the American Despot
by Karen Kwiatkowski
“A few years ago, Parade Magazine did a nice piece on the world’s ten most horrid dictators. It’s enlightening reading.

Number 1 successfully stifled press freedom, and created a system of torturous prison camps for those he deemed political enemies.

Number 2 has problems in honoring the results of elections, favors militaristic solutions and operates in complete obscurity.

Number 3 monitors communications of all citizens, as a matter of national security.

Number 4 has “killed, tortured and displaced 70,000 people.” Only 70,000, you say?

Number 5 “engages in arbitrary arrests and torture.”

Number 6 “is in permanent contact with the Almighty” and “can decide to kill without anyone calling him to account and without going to Hell.

Number 7 has been involved in continuing a civil war that has killed 2 million people and uprooted 4 million more. He has been accused of “engineering famine” in regions that oppose him.

Number 8 insists the country’s constitution doesn’t really apply to him.

Number 9 controls the courts.

Number 10 replaced the constitution with one that better suited him.”
