"Essentially, Ron Paul wants to treat Americans as adults, rather than as children constantly begging their parents to give them what they want. He believes in freedom from taxes that fund wasteful and ineffective programs and freedom from a government powerful and intrusive enough to routinely override individual choices, when those choices do not infringe on the rights of others."

Ron Paul a Real Republican
"Too often folks say, 'I voted for the lesser of two evils.' Send a message to Washington. Look up Paul, a statesman leading by personal example...."

Paul is the “one exception to the Gang of 535″ on Capitol Hill.
The Ron Paul FREEDOM PRINCIPLES are...
*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.
This really Works for me!!!

"The Revolutionary Candidate"
"Ron Paul has made numerous media appearances, from C-SPAN to Lou Dobbs, since and prior to the announcement of his candidacy. Still, the strategy thus far has been to ignore him to the extent possible. That approach cannot work in the long run, since for one thing the enthusiasm for Dr. Paul all over the Internet cannot be contained forever. For another, people are going to become curious about him when they watch, or hear reports about, the first Republican primary debate on May 3. They’ll see a bunch of establishment hacks uttering platitudes devised for them by handlers and focus groups, and they’ll see Ron Paul, who unlike his opponents is not only intelligent enough to write his own speeches, but who will also raise questions the other candidates would prefer not to discuss. He can pummel every single one of them on their lousy records on taxes, the Constitution, and war. Ron Paul is about to spoil the party. This will be like no other Republican primary debate in many, many years."

Different GOP Texan for president
Last Updated: March 25, 2007, 10:35:23 AM PDT
If the Republican Party is ever going to have a chance to win in 2008, it will need a candidate who will repudiate, not extend, President Bush's legacy of war, corruption and profligacy. Congressman Ron Paul, R-Texas, is that man. More than just a grin and a sound bite, Paul is a man of deep convictions. He is one of the few nationally prominent Republicans who had the courage to oppose the Iraq war and the administration's ongoing assault on personal freedom.
Ron Paul is one of the few public officials at the national level who understands why the Federal Reserve system must go and why we need to return to the gold standard. As president, he would use the Constitution itself as a yardstick to determine whether a bill shall be signed or vetoed. If nominated by the GOP, he will return the party to its small government, more freedom roots. If Ron Paul is elected, we Americans can once again say with a straight face, "We live in the greatest and freest nation on Earth!"

"Like Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan, Ron Paul believes that government is usually the problem, not the solution. He's the only presidential contender who's serious about restoring government to the constitutional limits intended by our nation's Founders. He deserves our support."
