December 29, 2011- A number of things about Republican Party Presidential Nominee candidate Ron Paul are different. He always arrives at the precise time a rally starts or a speech is scheduled shocking organizers and party members alike. He also is not held hostage by mainstream media.
One other big difference with Congressman Paul is how much he sticks to the Constitution. He is always quoted as saying, “Why can’t we just stick to the Constitution. It calls for life and liberty and is meant to limit the size of the government.”
Many conservatives want small government. Paul wants a government that is so small few would even be able to see it or recognize it. Paul says only about 20% of what the government does is constitutional. He says, “Education and Medicare are not part of the Constitution.” He feels the Peace Corps should not be government run but should be run by private charities.
His campaign is built on people’s freedoms, liberties and the right to enjoy the fruits of their labors. With a smaller government, he says, the people will not feel the burden of high taxes taking all their earnings. He also says “The rule of law” should be held supreme.
