- Republicans or Democrats -



I had to ask myself if there were other candidates for President that I would vote for other than Barack Obama. Before today, I would have told you "no, there are no other candidates I would consider." I knew that Ron Paul existed, I knew that he had a message, but what I didn't know was exactly what Ron Paul's message was.

I've been reading a little bit about Mr. Paul and I have to say that the man with two first names doesn't seem so bad... Yes, we all know that Ron Paul is a Republican. But what does that mean--to be a Republican? If it means having a plan for this country The United States. If it means bringing home the soldiers that protect us from harm, and not just from Iraq but from around the world. If it means restoring dignity to this great country. If it means bringing about national medical coverage, if it means smaller Government, if it means returning to diplomacy than I guess I may be a Republican.

It's sad that I've spend many years of my life thinking that Liberals were better... Well, not completely, but it seemed like liberals were for me, fighting the good fight, bringing justice to the weak, the minority, and the poor. I'm not gullible, I'm not that naive person that only watches local TV news and compares that to the rest of the world.

The odd thing is that for some reason I feel naive today, I felt like a secret had been kept from me and all it took was a New York Times article and Youtube to bring this little secret called Ron Paul to light. So, no, I'm not a Republican and I'm not a Democrat either, I'm a man on a mission very much like the man that I've recently discovered; Mr. Ron Paul.


WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW AND FIND OUT ABOUT RON PAUL FOR YOURSELF. WHO KNOWS, MAYBE HE'S COULD BE OBAMA'S VP??? TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK.

Ron Paul is a former Libertarian. Old school politics allegedly like that - individual freedom, non-interfering government. But now the only thing either party is interested in is raising money as pandering to their base (i.e. influential fat cats on the Republican side, and big labor on the Democrat side). Its too bad guys like Ron Paul can never be taken seriously in national politics.
