Harvard Independent: Ron Paul’s Our Man

A commitment to fiscal consistency and the rise of the American economy.

First, it is important to note that the presidential election is not about race, religion, socioeconomic level or marital status. It is about what will be best for the United States of America in the years to come. Second, track records matter. Actions speak louder than words, and so the true value of any candidate should be measured first by what he or she has done, and then by what he or she will do. Third, Americans need to learn to prioritize. Instead of hanging their hopes on a fictitious political savior who merely runs a campaign of ‘Change’ and ‘Hope’ rather than taking concrete action, they should be focusing on what really matters: money and national defense (in all of its forms). Everything else needs to take a backseat.

Before the economic crisis began, Congressman Paul was one of the loudest voices that warned the rest of Congress of what was about to take place. As the crash approached, he was heavily criticized by the establishment media and even by many of his fellow Republicans because he would not back down from his warnings about where big government policies were leading America. When those predictions came true, however, the President and leaders in Congress used the economic chaos as an excuse to expand government intervention and power on an unprecedented level. Congressman Paul believes that excessive spending, artificial credit, and market manipulation crashed our economy, and no one should be surprised that these same policies continue to prolong the suffering for millions of Americans. His solution to this is manifold. First, he plans to veto any unbalanced budget Congress sends to his desk. Second, he will refuse to raise the debt ceiling so politicians can no longer spend recklessly. Third, he will fully audit (and then end) the Federal Reserve System, which has enabled the more than 95% reduction of what our dollar can buy and continues to create money out of thin air to finance future debt. Congressman Paul claims these policies will allow the worth of the United States Dollar in relation to foreign currency to grow and hopefully return our currency to its former strength.

As for national defense, Congressman Paul believes that there is nothing more important than a strong United States of America. The country was strong once, and can be strong once again if steps are taken in the next term. As an Air Force veteran, Ron Paul believes national defense is the single most important responsibility the Constitution entrusts to the federal government. His plans on national defense center mainly around a simple concept: the United States is not the world’s police. Mull that over for a moment. Acting as the world’s policeman and nation-building weakens our country, puts our troops in harm’s way, and sends precious resources to other nations in the midst of an historic economic crisis at home. The way things stand, taxpayers are forced to spend billions of dollars each year to protect the borders of other countries, while Washington refuses to deal with our own border security needs. As president, Congressman Paul will make securing our borders the top national security priority and avoid unnecessary long and expensive land wars that bankrupt our country. If and when war becomes necessary, unlike some of his predecessors, he will follow the guidelines written in the Constitution, asking Congress to declare war before starting one.

Ron Paul is the right choice for America for a number of reasons, but mainly because, despite the fact that he is a Republican, he does not particularly care for partisan politics, and instead directs his focus towards what will be best for the country that he loves, the country that he risked his life for, and the country that he plans to serve to the best of his capabilities for years to come.

A vote for Ron Paul in 2012 declares a love for America and a hope to see our nation reclaim economic stability and confidence on the world’s stage.

This country did not achieve greatness with the mindset of "safety first" but rather "live free or die".
