I am writing in hopes of informing those who don't know about Congressman Ron Paul's current campaign for the Republican nomination for the presidency.
Ron Paul is a 10-term congressman from Texas and also a licensed doctor. I would like to encourage people who are looking for a change in America to look into him.
He has never voted to raise taxes; he voted against the Iraq War; against regulation of the Internet; against the very unpatriotic, undemocratic Patriot Act; against an increase in executive power; wants to erase the Federal Income Tax and IRS; wants to revamp U.S. foreign policy; and voted against an unbalanced budget.
These are only a few items on Ron Paul's record, and he could very easily be considered the most conservative of Republicans running for the nomination this election.
Because mainstream media seldom cover him, discrediting him as a "long-shot candidate," much is left to his ever-increasing grassroots campaign of millions of Americans across this country. He has been credited by many for "curing" their political apathy, presenting them with different, yet very realistic change for a better, more free America.
Ron Paul supporters made records by raising more than $4.5 million in a 24-hour period Nov. 5 and staged another mass fund-raiser Dec. 15, in memory of the Boston Tea Party, the event that was a catalyst to our first American Revolution.
I urge citizens from all political parties to look at this man and what he can do for America. Please visit his Web site for more information.
