Armed Forces Day

On this Armed Forces Day we remember our military personnel through out the World who are selflessly serving our great Republic. I would also like to thank all the family members and the veterans who have served before.

Founding Fathers Quote

The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

Renewing the Patriot Act: Who Will Protect Us From Our Government? by John W. Whitehead

Renewing the Patriot Act: Who Will Protect Us From Our Government? by John W. Whitehead

Why Ron Paul? Why Now?

Many people are asking why they should vote for Ron Paul and what makes him right for the presidency now. He has always been right for President it is the people who were not in the right place to see it. Americans have been asleep at the wheel; now they are waking up and seeing their Republic is headed for the ditch. Most of them are responding by reaching for the steering wheel when what they really need is the brake.

It is a mistake to expect a spineless moderate candidate to steer us away from destruction. That kind of thinking is like navigating an obstacle course blind folded and not understanding the obvious results. We have to be willing to put the real issues and solutions on the table. Ron Paul has been doing that longer than most of us can remember.

A good place to start is where some conservative Libertarians think Ron Paul is wrong; that is his foreign policy. Where his foreign policy is right is that our military does not belong in any other sovereign country or in any military/police/humanitarian action that is not a war declared by Congress. Our government does not have the right to occupy any other country, no matter what their justification.

Does Russia have a right to occupy our soil if they do not agree with our policies or government? I think not. So why would we believe that it is right for us to do the same? In the big picture of the world there is not right or wrong there is only our way of thinking and theirs. Ours will always differ from theirs; that is not justification for us to invade them or for them to invade us. That is just the way the world is and was meant to be.

Our government's duty is not to invade, occupy, or dictate to foreign nations; it is to protect our home soil. In this, Ron Paul is right. Where we need to work to change his thinking is that we need a strong military presence at home also. The only thing that deters enemies is naval and military strength, an active presence, and a gun in every home. No enemy can stand against that.

The only other issues that matter, and resolves all other issues, is personal liberty and states rights. Ron Paul supports both of these actions in the American government and that scares the hell out of most other politicians; because that takes away their money and their power. Without the money and power they steal from the American people they would be mere elected officials expected to represent the voice of the constituents.

Those who use the terms cooky and extreme, and claim that he wants to legalize street drugs are paranoid, lack self education, or are too lazy to think for themselves. Those who use the term cooky seem to be the very definition of the term and it is going to take someone extremely passionate about liberty to right all that is wrong with this Republic. Despite what our tyrannical government and liberal media would have you believe it is not extreme to advocate for freedom and liberty.

An important thing to remember is that the states have the power, not the federal government, as given by the Constitution of the United States. If a state chooses to legalize cigarettes, alcohol, gay marriage, or marijuana that is their right; and it is our right, and duty, to leave any state whose laws or policies offend us. That is what will keep the states power in check. If no one agrees with their laws and move, taking their tax dollars with them, that state will be forced to create laws its citizens agree with.

What people no longer understand is that no one has the right to take away any other person's rights for any reason. Everyone has a right to own their privacy, property, money, opinions, and freedom. If we do not possess the right to take away any right from another then we don't have the ability to give our government the right to do it, and any person or government who does such things must be restrained.

This is what Ron Paul stands for, not the spin that bullies who want to take away your rights, your privacy, your money, and your freedom so viciously spew. They practically foam at the mouth with hatred and anger at the thought that anyone dare stand up to them and their made up authority. Don't let your slave masters beat you down and tighten the shackles until you bleed and starve you for your disobedience and don't fool yourselves because that is exactly what they would do if you bow down and let them.

When your government believes it has the right to tell you what you can and cannot say, to enter your home when ever it chooses, to arrest you for any charge they can make up, take away your guns so you cannot resist, and take nude pictures of you and your children and sexually assault you for the right to travel what is keeping them from believing they have the right to take your life? It is going to take an passionate candidate to fight against a government that has turned into such a tyranny.

I am the wife of a veteran and I strongly believe and support maintaining a strong military, at home, where they belong; protecting us and not bullying the world. We are not Brittan, President Obama is not King George, and we are not better than other nations if we believe we are.
