Just going back on my old Post and reading them again, I felt the need to share this one.
If you want to gain some unique perspective on politics at its core, “Liberty Defined" by Ron Paul is the book for you. Readers come away with a better understanding of the current political state of our country and what transpired to cause the current status.
Ron Paul is a physician and twelve-term congressman from Texas, and for 2012, will be his third presidential run. To his supporters, they admire his honestly, direct approach and unwavering belief in the Constitution. One may find politics easier to digest after reading the book. As you become more familiar with Ron Paul, you will notice that he always speaks about the Constitution.
American news media perpetuates biased views on current events. It is increasingly more difficult to get unbiased news unless one double and triple checks facts. For people that search for a refreshing take on politics, Ron Paul’s “Liberty Defined” offers a unique insight into current political quagmire. One may say Ron Paul’s views are eccentric. Ron Paul supporters will argue that his unwavering believes are based solely on upholding the Constitution. The definition of the Constitution of the United States,” is the supreme law of the United States of America. The Constitution is the framework for the organization of the United States government and for the relationship of the federal government with the states, citizens, and all people within the United States.” Can anyone hold his ground arguing against the Constitution? As July 4th approaches, all of us may need to reflect on how far our country has deteriorated due the lack of respect in upholding the Constitution.
There are numerous you tube clips of Ron Paul speaking about current economic crisis, wars, and diminishing liberty. To the vast majority, people feel he is way out in the right field. When one keeps an open mind while listens to him speak, it is easy to begin to see his point of view is based on following the Constitution as it was intended by the founding fathers.
According to Ron Paul (2011) on Campaign Finance Reform," these same people do not even entertain the thought that excessive spending on campaigning is a symptom of corrupt big government.” (p. 29) “Government attracts all those who enjoy using power over others and those who convince themselves that average people need 'smart' people to take care of them." (p. 57) If you can handle some brutal honesty, Ron Paul is your man.
