Ron Paul, the guy I’m going to write in for President later this year, has a new book out.
Here’s an excerpt from his mailing list announcement which I received today.
These principles – individual liberty, sound money, the Constitution, and the foreign policy of the Founding Fathers – have had no home in American politics for a very long time. With The Revolution: A Manifesto, I’m letting the establishment know we’re not going away. Finally, Americans can hear and judge these great American principles for themselves, instead of through an unfriendly media filter. And they can learn once and for all that they need not be satisfied with the phony choices the system offers them every four years. Another way really is possible.
The media vilified Ron’s candidacy. At times, he was polling around 10-15% in places, but never higher. Maybe that’s because from the very beginning people like Sean Hannity were labeling him a nut job with no chance in hell of being elected. Then someone or some group planted the whole “Ron Paul is a racist” red herring. People called those who believe in Ron’s message of liberty and individual responsibility as well as small government at the federal level “Paultards” and other nasty little monikers.
I don’t think people who like Ron Paul and think he’d make a good President claim the guy is perfect. We just think he is way better than Hillary “Communist Powermonger” Clinton or Barack “Empty Promises and Pipe Dreams” Obama or John “American Values by Force are our Primary Export” McCain. Ron Paul doesn’t promise to fix all our problems by stealing money from some of us and giving it to others.
The anti-Ron Paul people are short-sighted and are doing a great disservice to America by trying to silence one of the few prudent politicians serving at the federal level. In that great, shrill, gasping mass of irresponsible children we call Congress but should call criminals, Ron Paul is one of the few who actually practice the principles he preaches. Unlike John McCain, Ron Paul doesn’t say things he doesn’t really believe in hopes of getting elected. McCain pretends to be principled. Ron Paul IS principled. I cannot understand how this is not self-evident to people. Maybe they just don’t care. Maybe they just want the politician who promises them the most free stuff.
If you are interested in liberty, fiscal responsibility and a government that actually adheres to the limits placed on it by the Constitution, then you should probably pick up a copy of Revolution, A Manifesto.
