A great man we need

Ron Paul is a lot of things. From being kind to fighting the same politicians he sits next to for our rights. During this 2012 election I was very disappointed that not only did Ron Paul get gypped out for the Republican parties candidacy, but also presidency. During elections I was really hoping that as a society; we would have really stood up and showed this country that we will not just elect the front runners. Ron Paul should have been a front runner; since he wasn't it was our job to make sure this man was able to get in office. Now before I discovered Ron Paul I was all for Obama, but after reading campaigns, watching debates, rallies, and really doing my research; I came to the conclusion that our country needed a man who stood for us.

He is a working American just like the rest of us Americans are. Yes, he might be a politician, but he has left that roll to work hard like anybody else. He has delivered over 4,000 babies to this world. Giving back money he has earned. He believes in the Constitution and probably has read it more than most politicians together. I know this is personal preference, but the facts behind the 2012 elections and even before that has proven that Ron Paul is a great man that we need.

Ron Paul believes in the youth of our country. He knows that the youth are the ones that will have to clean up the mess of the generations before us. Especially if our economy keeps falling; they will inherit our debt. A debt that was decided for us; that we have to pay for. I'm so happy he was able to get the federal reserve audited and that's just a start. I love his views on bringing our troops home and so much more.

He also believes in more privacy in our homes and less secrecy in government. As people we put so much trust and responsibility into our government, but for what. When we don't know what's going on and aren't educated; we won't know when to really get involved and take a stand. Our government is screwing with our lives, money, and our children's future. When is it time to say enough is enough?

While he was in congress, he took on the role of educating his fellow congressman. He shares liberal views and opposes socialism. This is one of the reasons he appeals to young people. He has very good ideas and ways to get out of the mess we are in. I know that Ron Paul can change the future. If he doesn't re-run we can show our support for him by supporting his son in the future; Rand Paul shares many of the same views as his father. I hope that by 2016 our country isn't in worse condition. Hopefully the government we came to depend on, can show us reasons why we should continue to depend on them. As long as Ron Paul is alive I know he will continue to spread his invaluable knowledge to us all.

If you disagree that is solely your opinion. Please be respectful!

      I totally get that. I had to take myself away from conversations during the elections. Its like they don't have their own opinions. Only we as the people know what we need.

      We've got more than a house divided, we've got a house stupid.

      I really just don't see or hear much from folks other than ....them repeating the slogans and memes their party of choice has drummed into their heads over the television.

      I've just got to find other things to think about ...or I'll forever be unhappy :/

      Yeah I hope he does to. I was very disappointed with the end result of the 2012 elections, but sadly most Americans don't realize that you don't have to vote for the front runners. Or they don't think one of the other candidates won't win so they vote for someone else or don't vote at all. I always say a house divided is a house that will fall.

      I'm also a big fan of Gary Johnson, but I hope Rand Paul will run next go round :)

      He inspires me; before him I was lost in politics.
