Repost the following blog entry on conservative websites like redstate. They'll ban you but every person who reads it will be forced to rethink their position on Ron Paul.

I didn't write it by the way. I ran across it while surfing the net.



Why I Owe Ron Paul An Apology.

Today when cleaning out the family garbage truck, a.k.a the minivan, I noticed something had fell on the ground during my numerous trips to the garbage can. Annoyed and short on time, I simply escorted it back to the vehicle, where out of curiosity I decided to see what had refused to go to the place of no return. The offender had Testimonial written in big letters at the top and underneath was the name Hon. Ron Paul. "Great! This really needed to go to the trash!" However for some reason I decided to read it and boy I was shocked.

I need to admit something before I go any farther. Up until this moment, I am ashamed to admit that I had pretty much written Ron Paul off as a total fruit cake in need of services from a good mental institution. While I am friends with some Ron Paul supporters, others have scared me with their almost cult-like devotion to the man whom I feel disgraced America when he once implied in a national debate that we were in some way responsible for the demonic attacks that hit our country on 9-11. Although publicly I have been respectful of Ron Paul and his supporters, I now realize that I was guilty in my heart of passing judgment on his.

The Bible, which I know as the written word of God, has this to say in regards to judging others:

Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
Matthew 7:1-6
NIV

Upon further inspection of the item, I realized that it appeared to truly be a testimony. When reading the excerpt below, I received a glimpse of Ron Paul's heart and become fully aware of the plank in my own eye.

"I have never been one who is comfortable talking about my faith in the political arena. In fact, the pandering that typically occurs in the election season I find to be distasteful. But for those who have asked, I freely confess that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, and that I seek His guidance in all that I do. I know, as you do, that our freedoms come not from man, but from God. My record of public service reflect my reverence for the Natural Rights with which we have been endowed by a loving Creator".

The word of God also has this to say:

"By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?"
Matthew 7:16

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;..."
Jeremiah 1:5

"You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, "Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgement."
Matthew 5:21

Keep this in mind when reading the next excerpt from the Ron Paul material.

"I have worked tirelessly to defend and restore those rights for all Americans, born and unborn alike. The right of an innocent, unborn child to life is at the heart of the American ideal of liberty. My professional and legislative record demonstrates my strong commitment to this pro-life principle.

In 40 years of medical practice, I never once considered performing an abortion, nor did I ever find abortion necessary to save the life of a pregnant woman. In Congress, I have authored legislation that seeks to define life as beginning at conception, H.R. 1094. I have also authored H.R. 1095, which prevents federal funds to be used for so-called "population control." Many talk about being pro-life. I have taken and will continue to advocate direct action to restore protection for the unborn."

The words of Ron Paul convicted me today. Not only do I owe my savior an apology but Ron Paul himself.

While many politicians claim allegiance to a nameless "God", few acknowledge the one way to the true creator-Jesus Christ as Ron Paul has done. This happens even though the words of Jesus is written:

I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God.
Luke 12:8
NIV

Many politicians proudly title themselves "pro-life", yet they sit on the sidelines and accept a form of legalized murder. However it appears Dr. Paul has taken the intuitive to not only stand for what is right but to take action as well.

While Ron Paul may not my first choice for president, he has now become a politician I admire more than most. The world is a better place because of him and for that I am thankful.
