It is rare to find a man governed by principle rather than by pride and money. Ron Paul is a champion of freedom. I voted for Ron Paul in 2008 even though his name was not on the ballot. I had to write in his name. He has my vote again in 2012.
Here’s an inspiring 2008 YouTube on Ron Paul and liberty. I’ve written the quotes from the video for your benefit.
