Mel, I'm assuming you hate politicians because they want to:
1. Tax you
2. Limit your freedoms and,
3. Basically run your life.
Well here is a guy that's running for President that is NOT like all the others. He believes in YOU. He believes that YOU can best decide what kind of school your children will attend, what kind of medical coverage you want, what kind of retirement plan you want to participate in, etc. He wants you to be free to keep ALL the money that you earn, to spend it as YOU wish, and to run your OWN life, not the way that bureaucrats in Washington think is best for you. Here is the only chance you're gonna have to do that for the next few years..........don't pass it up!
Also, please keep in mind that Dr. Paul boasts a 100% stellar voting record in regards to limiting the scope and size and expansion of Federal Power and spending. If you like freedom, I suggest that you support someone who's actions speak for themselves. In Washington, he's called "Dr. No" and for good reason. http://www.vote-smart.org/voting_category.php?can_id=296
I will finish this reply by siting a misnomer that Washington and power corrupts everyone. It does NOT. Some men stand behind their principles no matter what. The excerpt below sums up his moral character pretty well. If, after all this, I can't get you to support him, I GIVE UP!!
"Washington Did Not Change ME"
(CNN) — Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) prefaced his answer to a question about cutting federal spending by responding to a previous statement by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ,) that in 1994, Republicans took control of Congress to change Washington, but instead Washington changed Republicans and spending got "out of control."
Paul said, "The statement earlier made that we all went to Washington to change Washington, Washington changed us. I don't think that applies to me. Washington did not change me. I would have liked to have changed Washington."
Paul eventually answered a question from Emily in Los Angeles who asked specifically which federal programs the candidates would cut in order to reduce spending.
"By cutting three programs such as the Department of Education, Ronald Reagan used to talk about that, Department of Energy. Department of Homeland Security is the biggest bureaucracy we ever had," Paul said.
