Something to consider


Okay. I would never force my political views on anyone, but I cannot keep my excitement bottled up any longer! Plus, this is my blog. And what else are blogs for except to share one’s own thoughts? I often say that David has been like a political sponge for the past month, and his enthusiasm has worn off on me. In fact, here is a blurb he wrote about it:

I’ve never been excited and enraged about politics the way I am right now. And, it’s because of Ron Paul’s views on the constitution, getting rid of big government, allowing people to live their lives, and probably most importantly, returning to sound monetary policies that will stop the outrageous inflation and devaluation of the dollar we are seeing in our country. Did you know your salary is worth 25% less now than it was in 2003, and that’s even if you have had average raises? It’s because the FED prints fiat money (money not based on a standard, such as gold) whenever they want. This has to stop, or we will be in economic ruin in just a few short years. The constitution doesn’t allow for fiat money, but that doesn’t matter to our government. Oh, and by the way, oil, and everything else imported to our country costs us much more now than it did just a couple of years ago because our government just keeps printing money to wage war, entangle with other nations’ business, support tyrannical world leaders, and create new departments of bureaucrats to meddle in our lives. The printing of fiat money is in direct relation to the inflation we’re experiencing, and it has to stop. Just some thoughts. Check out Ron Paul:

If you are still debating about who you want to be President of the United States in 2008, please, please, take a look at what Ron Paul has to say. Simply put, he looks to the constitution when deciding on anything for the American people. He feels like our founding fathers did a pretty good job designing a democracy and he thinks we should stick to their plan. I have never heard another politician be so consistent with what he says from day to day and from group to group. You don’t have to wonder what he’ll vote for, or against. Just look to the constitution, and you’ll find the answer. Don’t fall for the media’s representation of him. It can be one-sided at times. I know, I know. You’re shocked!

This is cheesy, but it’s short, sweet, and gets the point across!

I’ll end this post with some of my favorite Ron Paul quotes.

The moral and constitutional obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.

I am just absolutely convinced that the best formula for giving us peace and preserving the American way of life is freedom, limited government, and minding our own business overseas.

When the federal government spends more each year than it collects in tax revenues, it has three choices: It can raise taxes, print money, or borrow money. While these actions may benefit politicians, all three options are bad for average Americans.

Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger.

One thing is clear: The Founding Fathers never intended a nation where citizens pay nearly half of everything they earn to government.

We need to understand that the more government spends, the more freedom is lost. Instead of simply debating spending levels, we ought to be debating whether the departments, agencies, and programs funded by the budget should exist at all.

See what Ron Paul has to say about the issues.

My brother-in-law is also a big Ron Paul fan. Check out his blog for an abundance of information about Ron Paul.
