'Candidate will restore Freedoms'
I couldn’t believe George Bush’s comments on July 4 comparing the Iraq war to the Founding Fathers’ fighting for independence. The French didn’t stick around building permanent military bases, or attempt to dictate the type of government we would have.
1776 brought about new rights and liberties for all Americans, while the “War on Terror” has destroyed those very rights the founders fought and died for. The Patriot Act has not stopped terror; it has only created more abuses of power by the federal government.
One candidate in 2008 has a message of ending the notion of “pre-emptive war” and restoring our civil liberties and our Constitution, and that candidate is Ron Paul.
He is not antiwar, just anti-pre-emptive war. Far from being a peace hippie, he supported the war in Afghanistan and even introduced legislation to issue a “Letter of Marque” for the capture of Bin Laden.
He is the strongest supporter of our Second Amendment rights, voting against federal restriction on gun ownership. But most importantly and most impressively, he does not take donations from corporate or special-interest groups.
No puppet-masters; just you, me and the Constitution.
