The True Candidate for Peace

In an article published by Wired, The Dead, the Dollars, the Drones: 9/11 Era by the Numbers, by Lena Groeger, exposes some frightening figures while comparing the Bush and Obama years and the “war on terror.

*Yes, Obama’s Admin has more drone hours over 3 yrs than the Bush Admin over 8 yrs! ^^Both Admins had 3 yrs each of data available n MRAP Armored Vehicles. ** Obama has a total of 5, 570 wiretap orders in 2 yrs! No figures for 2011…

While Obama promised our troops would be home in 16 months, they have been shifted to other places, but they are not home.

While many voted for Obama in 2008 thinking there would be an end to the illegal wars overseas, the above article and chart clearly shows no such thing.

Ron Paul is against these undeclared wars and has been from the beginning. He wants to bring our troops home.

“Because he can’t go to war by talking to the United Nations and NATO and refusing to talk to the Congress.” Ron Paul talking about Obama and the US participation in Libya.

“Why are we in Korea? We’ve been there since I’ve been in High School. Why are we in Japan? We’ve been there since World War II. Why are we in Germany subsidizing their welfare state by paying for their defense by staying in Germany? And why are we in 5 wars in the Middle East?”

Ron Paul

Notes:

Ron Paul In His Own Words:

Federal Reserve

”Why should they be independent? Independent to them means secrecy, do whatever you want, spend trillions of dollars, bail out their friends, make deals with international bankers, with other central banks and other governments. No, they shouldn’t have the right to do that.”

“We have an obligation as members of Congress to protect the people and protect the value of the money. To do that, you have to know what the Fed is doing.”

Freedom

”I think when you defend freedom, you defend freedom of choice, and you can’t be picking and choosing how people use those freedoms.”

“We don’t get our rights because we are gays or women or minorities. We get our rights from our Creator as individuals.”

“Freedom is a young idea. It’s only been tested for a couple hundred years. We’ve had a taste of it and we’re throwing it away.”

Government

“My goal was to shrink the size of government, balance our budget, pay the bills, have sound money and live within our means and mind our own business…”

“The Sovereignty of this nation depends on us and not the UN and the Constitution is the Law of the Land.”

“We shouldn’t be in office if we don’t understand what the Constitution says.”

“I look to Article 1 Section 8 and look for my authority and if it’s not there, I don’t do it.”

Ron Paul, Liberty Defined

Is Paul an Isolationist?

The Constitution is clear. Only Congress can declare war. Yet with several of our past Administrations, including both the Bush and Obama”s, have taken us to war without that declaration.

Paul, himself a Veteran, believes in a strong national defense and would:

Follow the Constitution by asking Congress to declare war before one is waged. declare war before one is waged.

CNN spins Ron Paul’s stand on Health Care

Ron Paul is the only candidate speaking out about making alternative healthcare a real choice!

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer ask a question about a healthy “hypothetical man” who had no desire to purchase insurance, yet had a major health crisis. Blitzer

asked Paul, "Are you saying society should just let him die?"

The liberal media has spun that in every way possible, yet, Paul’s answer was brazen.

Simply put, Paul stated it was his choice not to have insurance. Paul suggested the man should have a major medical policy, but that it should not be mandatory. He said the hospital at which he practiced never turned anyone away.

Paul emphasized our individual responsibility. "We have given up on this whole concept that we might take care of ourselves, assume "

responsibility for ourselves

and stated there is

no competition in medicine, and because of that, we need to "legalize alternative health care allow people to practice what they want.", but these two things are never mentioned by the mainstream

media!

Paul on Fractional Reserve Banking

“Yes, you have the Fed creating money out of thin air, but then this is magnified by Fractional Reserve Banking, which is really fraudulent. All it does is build financial bubbles, guaranteeing the business cycle and the collapses…The longer you do that the bigger the bubble…”

Politicians love it. You can fight wars that you don’t have to pay for, you can run the welfare state that you don’t have to pay for…”

“You just can’t create money out of thin air.”
