    Written by Congressman Ron Paul of Texas
    It goes on...



    If you are a true conservative, you'll be interested in what Mr. Paul has to say.
    If, on the other hand, you are more concerned with "red states" and being a republican, then you won't care at all.

    As I stated in the other thread...

    You do know that Ron Paul is a Libertarian who joined the R Party in an attempt to revise it to fit more with the Libertarian agenda, don't you? I recently followed his example in the hopes we can return the Republican Party to its small (l) libertarian core values.

    I must've missed that in the other thread.

    The Republican party is now the big government party. I hope that Ron Paul succeeds.

    Nah, they're just the "Not-so-big-but-still-frigin'-huge-government Party".

    The D's remain the true big government party. The party that believes that the answer to all problems is more government and more government spending.

    Which most Americans don't want. Americans want their taxes low, less gov't intervention, and their families respected.

    The current administration has expanded the government by several departments and increased spending by a huge margin...

    The fact that Mr. Paul seeks to inject sanity into the Republican Party shows that he still considers sanity within that party to be within the realm of the possible.

    Notice he didn't go near the Democrats.

    I wish him luck.

    That said, though, America very much defends its own sovereign interests by fighting terrorists wherever it finds them. Murderous cowards need to die - and better in their yard than ours.

    would like. But of course we should reduce Defense expenditures, because, after all, we aren't at war or anything.

    And I contend that a Federal government with a Democratic president and a Democratic majority in Congress would increase spending more quickly.

    Do you disagree?

    How many Republicans do you hear crying about how we don't spend enough money at the federal level (not counting military and domestic security expenditures)?

    How many Democrats do you hear crying about how we spend too much money at the federal level (not counting military and domestic security expenditures)?

    Then of course one might know the prime purpose of establishing a Federal government to begin with was for maintaing security from threats domestic and abroad. Which is why I make the above exemptions.

    Which party is better characterized by a desire to expand the Federal government most, and also a desire to expand it further beyond it's original intent?

    I contend that party is the Democratic party.

    Do you disagree? And if so, why?
