Because freedom can't protect itself
The idea of a government that started for freedom sake to stray this far from the course is very very troubling to say the least
Regarding the above Ron Paul wants to do away with the corporations diivrng up school costs and most of the other high costs associated with many services to society. He mainly is against the various Departments in the government because they have turned into instruments of protection of corporate interests instead of protecting individual citizen interests.Regarding abortion: Media constantly focuses on his personal anti-abortion beliefs but, he has stated over and over that abortion is a social issue and that the Federal government should stay out of the issue and let the states decide. So, I am generally pro-choice but, I'll support Paul because the worst he would do is just let us make those decisions at the state level.Regarding the Civil Rights Act: He mainly believes that the Act exceeded Federal Authority. He believes that the social progress would have occurred despite the Act. He wasn't against social progress he was against the Federal Government exceeding their Authority in dictating private citizen's lives. He is a Constitutionalist and doesn't support anything that exceeds the powers of the Federal Gov't beyond what the Constitution provides. Some times this can be perceived as good and sometimes as bad.
Never thought I'd support the ACLU. This NDAA thing is serious business however, and I applaud the efforts to educate and organize the citizens of The United States of America.
Agreed. I never thought I'd be siding w/the ACLU either. But considering most media outlets and our own government is more concerned with corporate interest and covering this up. I'm in 100%. If we can't unite on this , we will never unite on anything
