Are you happy with America’s present trajectory? Are you willing to settle for the status quo from your political leaders? Do you want more of the same from your government? Is the current political establishment representative of your views and interests? If so, you have many candidates for President of the United States from which to choose: If you’re especially happy with the State of the Union, then there’s the obvious choice of sticking with the incumbent President, from the Democrat Party. If you prefer that your status quo politician have an “R” beside their name (not that the two major political parties are very different), then you have several choices of Presidential candidates who represent nothing but the same old expedient political rhetoric, compromise, and failure to lead.
Mitt Romney is a Wall Street insider with a campaign well-funded by Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and other banking interests. Romney has been on every side of every issue depending on what office he’s running for at the time, and there’s video everywhere of him calling himself everything from a progressive to a conservative to a pragmatist, etc. Currently surging in many polls is Rick Santorum, who has a long track record of compromising on principles he espouses with votes and political work to increase government spending and expand the powers of government to interfere in the private lives of citizens. If you really want an egomaniacal fascist, then Newt Gingrich is certainly your huckleberry… do I really need to say more about Gingrich? If you want another pretend cowboy who is a prime naïve target for the warfare/welfare neo-con agenda, then Rick Perry has that whole ‘deer in the headlights’ bit down. There’s even Michelle Bachmann for the voters who don’t really know what they’re angry about, but like someone who can stir passion without any substance. Then there’s some other guy from Utah by the name of John Huntsman, lol! At least Gary Johnson was elected and re-elected as Governor of a state in which he balanced a previously out-of-control budget.
The political world looks just the same, but in new packaging for your viewing and voting pleasure. History hasn’t changed, and America maintains the current political ‘normalcy.’ Elect any of the afore-mentioned Republicans and it’s “meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”
But there is one candidate for President of the United States in 2012 who has said that he doesn’t want to be a boss, a King, or a dictator who actually thinks he’s ‘running’ anything so big and complex as a Country. This candidate who speaks the same language of liberty as America’s revolutionary founders, and understands our Constitutional Republic must be restored in the spirit of freedom, is Texas Republican Congressman Dr. Ron Paul.
Are you sick of the federal government drowning American citizens in debt that will haunt our grandchildren? Are you weary of the perpetual drumbeat for War from Washington D.C. chicken-hawk bureaucrats and warmongering profiteers who sit in judgment of all wrong and decide to whom the guns will sing their song? Are you fed up of the government increasingly ignoring our Constitutional Rights & Civil Liberties? Are you ready for a real game-changer? Are you willing to actually shake things up for a change? Do you think American voters should send a message to Washington D.C. that the federal government has over-reached it bounds? Don’t you think it’s about time for the backlash by “We The People” to warn the federal government to forsake its pursuit of a Global Warfare/Welfare Corporatist Military Empire, and return to its Constitutional roots as a sovereign, economically solvent and peaceful Republic? If you believe it’s time to give up on the ideals of Liberty for which America fought a Revolution of Independence, then Obama, Romney, Perry, Bachmann, Santorum, Gingrich, Huntsman, or any other spineless political clown will do. If you believe that America should still stand for our principles that each individual has the Right to be secure in his/her life, liberty, and property, then your clear choice is Ron Paul. At this point, if somebody doesn’t recognize that Ron Paul represents the Constitutional, reasonable, honest, and much-needed approach to America’s current most pressing problems, then I’m frankly sorry to say that they must not have paid attention. I’ve never seen a candidate for any office in my life that I was more positive was the right person for the job at the right time. It’s so blatantly obvious to me that Ron Paul is the most consistent freedom-loving patriot with the best understanding of what needs to be done to get America on the right track, I can hardly fathom why anybody would not support Ron Paul for President. Some of us won’t get fooled again.
America cannot afford four more years of the Obama Administration. We cannot afford more deficit spending and debt. We are on the brink of monetary crisis. We are in a fiscal crisis. Ron Paul has a long track record of monetary and fiscal responsibility, and has the free market remedy for restored prosperity. We are losing more of the freedoms which are supposed to be guaranteed in the Bill Of Rights every day to the growing powers of government via bad legislation and executive power-grabs. Ron Paul wants to restore Constitutional restrictions against the over-reach of our runaway government. We cannot and must not impose global corporatist rule as the world police with Imperial militarism, as our current foreign occupations are undermining our national security. Ron Paul wants to restore sanity to our foreign policy by ending warmongering in favor of a genuinely strong national defense. As the caucuses meet in Iowa today, I pray that America will show that it is waking up to find its way again by recognizing that Ron Paul is the only serious Presidential choice for those concerned about America’s freedom and future. The change has to come.
Restore the Constitution. Preserve the Republic. Balance the Budgets. End the Fed. End the Wars. Secure the Blessings of Liberty for ourselves and our posterity. Pursue Peace & Prosperity. Abandon political rhetoric for a candidate with a long and proven principled record. Don’t get fooled again. Vote for Ron Paul for President in 2012.
