No one believes that Ron Paul has a snowball's chance in hell in winning the Presidential nomination from the Republican party because he has no big money and has limited name recognition. But if we don't back someone with principles we will never have the right type of leadership.
I need to believe that we can have a better future or my having children would be tantamount to pure ego on my part. The hope for a better future still resides within my cynical soul and at times I to can be Don Quixote and blaze through the fierce jungle to bring a golden civilization to the land (okay it is just cutting the back yard that is over grown).
In my search for a candidate that I can believe in I have found perhaps the last principled member of our Congress. The republican party sponsored a candidate against Mr. Paul because he refuses to tow the line.
He believes in our constitution and is the type of politician that I would try and emulate if I ever obtain a political office within our government.
I have mentioned him to others and some already want to write him off as someone who is too off the beating path to support. SO YOU WANT WHAT WE HAVE TO CONTINUE! HILLARY, OBAMA, EDWARDS, GUILLIANI, MCCAIN are still the same beasts that we have in office today.
I have already donated money to his campaign and will give more and will campaign for him in anyway that I can. Look at his record, check what he believes, this is a man that should be our President.
