A Lifetime of Political Honesty Finally Pays Off for Dr.
As members of the U.S. Congress are allowed by law to inside trade, engage in conflicts of interest, leave office and then use their access to legislators to work for corporations as lobbyists making obscene amounts of money buying off legislators who are part of the greatest political body money can buy, Ron Paul’s paltry $2.3 million in personal wealth made from delivering over four thousand babies, investing in gold and writing best selling books on economics, banking, foreign policy and liberty shows he has not sold his soul or the American peoples’ future for his own personal enrichment. Meanwhile, Newt has accepted over a hundred million dollars as a lobbyist using this money paid by corporations to buy influence.
As Newt became fattened up by eating on dime of lobbyists and making millions in contributions while Speaker of the House until he was hit with dozens upon dozens of ethics violations in which he was fined an unprecedented $300,000, Ron Paul has remained the leanest politician in Washington and one whom lobbyists don’t even try to take out for lunch.
Ron Paul will not be getting any major corporate endorsements anytime soon as he has hit hard at corporate welfare, government bailouts to banking and a secret and unaccountable Federal Reserve that literally prints out multiples of trillions of dollars to give to foreign banks to prop up a collapsing and unsustainable global banking system. He does this to protect the interests of Americans and has done so for over thirty years.
One need only to Google “Ron Paul Debates Partee” to see a much younger Paul flaying the Federal Reserve in a debate that was biblical in is prophetic pronouncements. He was the only politician shredding “the Maestro” Greenspan when everyone believed Greenspan’s pronouncements about figuring out how to make a debt-based monetary system behave as if it were still a gold-based system.
One thing you will not hear during this election is any other candidate bringing to question Dr. Paul’s integrity. There will be no comments about him divorcing multiple wives. There will be no discussion about his flip-flopping on issues. There will be no legislation exposed in which he betrayed the U.S. Constitution or the peoples’ liberty. There will be no stories about him receiving millions from corporate donors as the majority of his money comes from small donations of hundreds of thousands of patriots. He is prone to brag about one thing. He is proud of the fact that he has received more donations from military service members than all the GOP candidates and Obama combined. How can any candidate deny that soldiers support his message of anti-interventionism?
Ron Paul has been as frugal in utilizing his campaign funds as he has been with taxpayers’ dollars. He uses commercial transportation and often flies business class. However, there is one thing Ron Paul is guilty of selling. He has sold the ideas of peace liberty, personal property and prosperity asking only that people provide their payment in time –the time needed to educate themselves by listening to the greatest thinkers, philosophers, economists and statesmen who have argued on Ron Paul’s side of the issues. Ron Paul has asked people to consider that money needs to once again become a product of the market and not the invention of governments that print oceans of enslaving debt out of nothing but ink and paper.
While Washington politicians do what serves their personal interests and the interests of state power, Ron Paul has remained steadfast in fighting for individual freedom and the arguments for his positions are directly attributable to such thinkers as Ludwig Von Mises, Murry Rothbard, Hans Hermann Hoppe, Carl Menger, F.A. Hayek, Frederic Bastiat, John Locke,, Alexis de Tocqueville and Etienne de La Boétie. While the other candidates could not tell you who most of these geniuses are, Ron Paul could tell you their history, their philosophy and explain how each came to their intellectual conclusions.
This election will be the one that has the last chance of again binding government to the Constitution and ensuring liberty. Before voting please consider which candidate’s personal history exemplifies fidelity to the ideas upon which this nation was originally founded.
