Support Ron Paul For President

Wednesday, March 14, 2007

Congressman Dr. Ron Paul has officially announced his run for president. He served in the U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard during the Vietnam War as a flight surgeon for five years. He is an OB/GYN having delivered 4,000 plus babies.

The importance of his run for office must be recognized by the people, with/without help from the mainstream media and powers that be. He will bring issues and excitement to the debates which have not been seen, at least in recent times.

The Republican and Democratic parties today both support bigger and bigger government. This is where Dr. Paul stands apart; he believes in and supports American Constitutional government. An index determining to what extent politicians support the Constitution, Dr. Paul has scored a perfect 100. Americans need to realize the importance of individual liberty, fiscal responsibility, and sensible foreign and domestic policy or we will be forced to lose what America has struggled and fought for since its beginning.

"Congressman Ron Paul is a dream candidate, a super patriot, a total Constitutionalist, an American hero. We must elect him President” (Alex Jones, Infowars.com).

Please get informed and support Ron Paul in 2008 at RonPaul.org

It is a shame that the teachers of Hamilton County, who work so hard to ... (click for more)

Great Work, City Auditor

As a voter, I was skeptical about having an independent city auditor’s office. This office was created by referendum of the voters. The public wanted third party oversight of city government, for good cause.  I will be the first to admit I was wrong.  A primary problem was the auditor being hired and fired by the mayor’s office, who could also set the auditors operating ...
