America needs a man like the U.S. Congressman from Texas,Ron Paul , who describes his platform as “limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies.” Sounds good, right? Wait…it gets better!
Paul also say he "never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by theConstitution , which has earned him the nickname, “Dr. No”.
No? The only time a politician votes no is when it is going to affect their chances for re-election!
Unfortunately, the tragedy is that Ron Paul or anybody like him will never be elected to an office beyond the Congress until America wakes up and realizes that “campaign finance reform” is our only hope for genuine change.
America, “the great experiment” in Democracy has created an almost impossible to unravel catch-22 concerning the electing of the right man for President of the United States.
This is due primarily to the fact that the “special interest money” and now, the “religious fundamentalists ” will never back the kind of man that will make the kind of choices to change the course of the “runaway juggernaut” that our system has become.
Why would they? Why should they when our system has evolved into one that allows institutions like “old money” and the “military industrial complex” to prosper?
If there is one thing that could begin to unravel the “Gordian Knot ” that our political process has become is the adoption real campaign finance reform, with no loopholes! And while you at it, go ahead and run all of the lobbyists out of Washington and let’s start over, using the Constitution has our only guide.
