I ask you before you read on - who are you and in what principles do you believe?  

Do you know? For sure?  Did you choose them or where they given to you? 

Do you believe in Democratic ideals? Or perhaps Republican? Maybe Libertarian or Green? If not, what title describes you?

I ask you next: why?

Why do you label yourself, and what do you think was the root-reason of that label? Perhaps you had an issue where you needed help and subscribe to a more socialist policy? Perhaps you were a small business ower who made good who wants government off your back and pushes more to a Repbulican belief system. Who knows?  

But are you now a victim of that label?  Or proud of it?  Either way, does any label completely stand for who you are?  I hope not.  I used to feel this way, and now I am changing my political party for the second time in my life.   

I ask you above all other things, are you not a person who respects your fellow man?  If you answer yes, please consider my words below.  

I forward for your consideration that Ron Paul is the one person who truely respects you. I also propose he is the man who respects your neighbor. I forward for your consideration, that Ron Paul is the one man who is running on a platform that can unite people vs. divide.

I want to live in a united country, and hope you do as well.

If you believe, that first and foremost, government is the solution to . I must openly question your logic. Let me ask you a few questions.

1. Why do you trust government, on faith?

2. Do you measure government performance vs. your own?

3. Would you consider that there are more than two axis to consider for solutions to problems "Big Business" vs Government

If you consider my points, you will find may place that government does succeed. National Defense, sound money, maintaining liberty, free press, etc.  These domains require a strong central government and support freedom.  Why?  Because they do not serve a 'sub-group'.  Money is money and whether it be in your hand or mine, it is still a dollar.  National defense does the same, we are one nation right?  And due-process serves us all, equally.   Dr. Paul would support a job for a National government in roles such as these.

If you continue to examine national government performance, there are many areas where it fails miserably.  These areas are often where a large national government attempts to take from one group to serve another.  

My point is that even government fails. And if government fails, another organization should be able to meet the need of the citizens it serves.

I am a 34 year old guy. I work as hard as I can, love as much as I am able, give to things I believe in, and drink alot of milk. Mostly, I respect freedom. I served in the military, and today do what I can to support freedom, dignity and respect (more...)
