I was gratified at this blog’s endorsement of Ron Paul and Tom White asked me to share a few words of my own.
I am voting for Ron Paul tomorrow. I am voting for Paul because:
I believe liberty is in danger from NDAA military indefinite detention without an attorney for anyone accused of being affiliated with terrorists
I believe some aspects of the USA Patriot Act go too far and threaten liberty.
I believe we must stop starting wars and placing our soldiers in harm’s way for regimes such as Afghanistan where we are hated and where Christians are persecuted. We need to (unless the national interest is imminent) to mind our own business!
I believe we need to stop most interventions and work to balance the budget, pay down the debt and get our financial ship back in order.
I believe if a central bank is needed it must be strictly supervised and audited.
I believe President Paul will reverse many Obama and Bush era executive orders
I believe President Paul will fight Agenda 21 and ICLEI and many other UN threats to our sovereignty
Perhaps there are other reasons to vote Paul but those are just a few. I invite the reader to look about you at this blog in my prior writings about Ron Paul.
I realize I am a bit like the commander [Katsumoto] in The Last Samurai who dies in the final battle fighting for his nation that had lost its way. But we must do what we can, pray for our nation and its leaders in that I believe in a God who rewards right and punishes the wrong and I want to believe in the right. I know the Lord Jesus is coming again and will make things right but the time of tribulation preceding that will be terrible. (If you do not know Jesus, you cannot escape that judgment. But here‘s where you go to know Jesus!)
Ron Paul has his flaws (I wish he’d never been involved in the newsletters as they do not reflect his heart) but I cannot vote in a primary for Gov. Romney. I do think he is honorable and will be a vast improvement over the present occupant in the White House but he does not have the passion for liberty Paul does.
I wish there were more choices on the ballot. But the Santorum and Gingrich supporters need to vote strategically. Vote for Ron Paul here. I heard on the radio this afternoon on the way home from work that former Rep. Hayworth from Arizona (who ran against Sen. McCain) called for Virginians to protest the ballot access and vote Ron Paul. I agree.
Finally, I would like to see a brokered convention as the best way to get either Ron Paul, Sen. Rand Paul or Gov. Bobby Jindal for our standardbearer in 2012. People in various states need to vote strategically to deny Romney needed wins. Keep at it, keep fighting for liberty and sovereignty.
