Letter to the Editor: Refuse to settle for the lesser of two political evils

“Why are so many people willing to settle for the lesser of two evils?” This is a question which I have been asking myself for quite some time. Is it out of ignorance or fear? Are people willing to settle for something simply because they despise option x a bit more than option y? Why do people cast away their deep-rooted values and principles simply for what society deems “practical,” or “pragmatic?”

I am not sure about you, but I am going to be voting for a man of value, honesty, consistency and integrity. And, believe it or not, such a man actually does exist in this race for the GOP presidential nomination. His name is Ron Paul, and I can think of no other man in modern America who has done more to help preserve our Constitution.

If you have the opportunity to vote in Michigan’s upcoming primary, are you going to vote for a man with a firm moral standing, a clear set of principles and thirty years of integrity and consistency? Or would you rather cast your vote for someone with no record of having these characteristics?

Paul is man who not only talks the talk, but who is able to walk the walk as well. In his twelve terms in the U.S. Congress, Paul has never voted for a tax increase, an unbalanced budget or for anything which would increase governmental power beyond its constitutional confines. Additionally, Paul has always been vehemently opposed to any foreign entanglement which he views as unconstitutional.

Paul, an obstetrician and former U.S. Air Force flight surgeon, is also unique in the fact that he is the only candidate in the race who has been a vocal critic of the Federal Reserve. Paul believes that we need a sound monetary system; not the system which we have now, which seemingly only serves to limit the wealth in which the average American can acquire via inflationary tactics and currency devaluation. Ron Paul wishes to kill the Federal Reserve’s printing press; not to expand it.

I urge all of you to cast your vote for the only man in the race who will truly fight to preserve your rights and liberties. Paul has NEVER wavered in his fight to protect you from government overreach. If you wish for peace, sound money and limited government; then please, cast your vote for Dr. Paul. He is truly the only candidate in the race who will work for Main Street, and not for Wall Street.
