What This Election is Really About

The founding fathers of this country envisioned a strong, prosperous nation that was free and independent. They invisioned a country that befriended other countries, but had entangling alliances with none. Having fled from an oppressive monarchy that controlled everything from what religion its people could belong to to trying to control other countries by developing an ever-expanding empire, the founding fathers of this great nation sought to prevent such a thing from ever happening again. Unfortunately, as it often does, history is repeating itself. We've come full circle. We have become that which we sought to escape.

The very things that our ancestors fled from by coming to this new land -- this land of opportunity -- are rapidly becoming our way of life. More and more of our freedoms are being taken away under the guise of national security. More and more nations are feeling our rath as we continually try to expand our empire and force our way of life on others. It's time we took this great nation of ours back. It's time we took it back to basics and to the principles upon which it was founded. These principles, no matter what the vested interests would have you believe, are just as relavent today as they were back in 1776. What has worked before will work now.

There is one candidate who can lead us out of the mess we've gotten ourselves into. That candidate is Congressman Ron Paul.

The following video has, for some reason, been banned on YouTube several times. Perhaps the truth is too much for some to handle. I'm posting it here now for you to see as I feel it captures the importance of why we need a President like Congressman Paul.
