Vote For Principles, Not Party

Congressman Ron Paul of Texas enjoys a national reputation as the premier advocate for liberty in politics today. Dr. Paul is the leading spokesman in Washington for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies based on commodity-backed currency. He is known among both his colleagues in Congress and his constituents for his consistent voting record in the House of Representatives: Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution. In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the "one exception to the Gang of 535" on Capitol Hill.


The Ron Paul Freedom Principles:

* Rights belong to individuals, not groups.
* Property should be owned by people, not government.
* All voluntary associations should be permissible -- economic and social.
* The government's monetary role is to maintain the integrity of the monetary unit, not participate in fraud.
* Government exists to protect liberty, not to redistribute wealth or to grant special privileges.
* The lives and actions of people are their own responsibility, not the government's.

Michael Brendan Dougherty explains Ron Paul's motivation for becoming a Presidential Candidate in the June 18, 2007 edition of The American Conservative:

What is the purpose of Ron Paul's candidacy for the presidency of the United States? Some longshots run because their egos demand it. Others want to raise their lecture fees. Some run because they have plenty of money and nothing better to do. Following a flood of viewer requests, the Texas congressman recently appeared on Fox News to explain himself. His answer was buoyant though laconic: "I want to be president because I have this dream. I'd like to reinstate the Constitution and restore the Republic." His answer was also revolutionary.


Ron Paul is one of us ...


In the forward of Ron Paul's 1988 book Freedom Under Siege - The U.S. Constitution After 200 Years, Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. writes:

"Every American who cares about liberty owes a debt to Ron Paul...Even the advocates of big government came grudgingly to recognize him as the man they couldn't sway, the man they couldn't buy. His only concerns were freedom, peace, the Constitution, and honest money, and these same ideals animate his latest book....For virtually every Congressman, there is not even a pause before he plunges into the trough. It is, after all, why he entered politics. But that is not why Ron Paul went to Washington. He sought a great rostrum for freedom, and he never sold out...."

"Over the years, Ron Paul's influence grew, not with politicians, but with the people....Other Congressmen would be flabbergasted to receive thousands of their own constituents' letters telling them to vote like Ron Paul. As Andrew Jackson said, "One man with courage can make a majority." Ron Paul has helped build the majority for freedom. In his campaigns, in the Congress, with the F.R.E.E. Foundation and the Mises Institute, calmly and without fanfare, he's worked for us and for our children....He never made a promise he didn't keep, never violated his oath to uphold the Constitution, never desecrated free market or hard money principles, never voted to waste a cent or to raise our taxes, was never less than a pure champion of liberty. We have not seen Ron Paul's like in Washington since the days of our Founding Fathers....He is the 20th Century's Thomas Jefferson."

Dr. Paul's consistent voting record prompted one Congressman to comment that "Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers' ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are." Another Congresswoman added that "There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles. Ron Paul is one of those few."

There's A Revolution Calling


About Dr. Paul

He graduated from Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine, before proudly serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s. He and his wife Carol moved to Texas in 1968, where he began his medical practice in Brazoria County. As a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology, Dr. Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies! He and Carol, who reside in Lake Jackson, Texas, are the proud parents of five children and have seventeen grandchildren.

Who Is Ron Paul?

Dr. Paul is also a strong advocate for protecting the unborn. The following are several articles that he has written on his pro-life position.

Being Pro-Life Is Necessary To Defend Liberty
The Partial Birth Abortion Ban
Pro-Life Action Must Originate From Principle

In his article Why Do Evangelicals Ignore Ron Paul?, Pastor Chuck Baldwin addresses Dr. Paul's pro-life stance. Pastor Baldwin notes Ron Paul's efforts in Congress introducing H.R. 776, entitled the "Sanctity of Life Act of 2005." Dr. Baldwin states:

"Furthermore, unlike most Republicans, Paul's commitment to the life issue is more than rhetoric. For example, during the 2005 congressional session, Rep. Paul introduced H.R. 776, entitled the "Sanctity of Life Act of 2005."

Had it passed, H.R. 776 would have recognized the personhood of all unborn babies by declaring, "human life shall be deemed to exist from conception." The bill also recognized the authority of each State to protect the lives of unborn children. In addition, H.R. 776 would have removed abortion from the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, thereby nullifying the Roe v Wade decision, and would have denied funding for abortion providers. In plain language, H.R. 776 would have ended abortion on demand. (It is more than interesting to me that none of the evangelicals' pet politicians, including George W. Bush, even bothered to support Paul's pro-life bill.)"

Ron Paul on the Issues


Ron Paul On The Issues


Life and Liberty
"I am strongly pro life. Life begins at conception ... but, I do not believe this should be a federal matter. All issues of life and violence and crime and murder are dealt with at the local level. " more

Debt and Taxes
"The people know much better how to spend their money than the government" more

No Taxes on Tips
"It is an outrage that waiters, waitresses, and other service-sector employees have to pay taxes on the tips they earn." more

The Inflation Tax
"Day by day, every dollar you have is being devalued. You pay an inflation tax without even realizing it." more

American Independence and Sovereignty
"I believe in being friends and I like as much free travel as possible and I like free trade, but I don't like more government managements because it essentially protects big industry... " more

National Defense
"We seem to have forgotten that our primary objective in the war on terror is to capture or kill bin Laden and his henchmen." more

War and Foreign Policy
"The only proper way to go to war, the only legal way to go to war, the only constitutional way to go to war is to declare the war, by the congress, not by the president. The people should be behind it." more

Iraq
"A well-intended but flawed policy has produced conditions that have led to a war dominated by procrastination, without victory or resolution in sight." more

Veterans
"A top priority for me is to take care of our veterans and I would do that by saving money elsewhere. " more

Health Freedom
"Americans are justifiably concerned over the government's escalating intervention into their freedom to choose what they eat and how they take care of their health." more

Environment
