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.

Let Freedom Ring

What do you worry about the most? Is it having enough money to put food on the table and a roof over your head? Is it the son or daughter you have overseas that's getting shot at on a regular basis -- or perhaps you're the one getting shot at? Or are you simply annoyed at the inconveniences of everyday life like having to take your shoes off when you go through security at the airport or the fact that the taxes you pay go to waste?

Whether you've noticed it or not, Americans are losing more and more of their freedoms. Despite whatever the reason or the justification for doing so, the government is working very hard to take away the most basic right we have as individuals - freedom. If you listen to all of the candidates running for President, whether Democrat or Republican, there is only one candidate who not only promises to do all he can to restore our freedom, but he has the voting record to prove it. That candidate is Ron Paul. I urge you -- no I beg you -- to help the few of us upon whose backs this fight for freedom is being waged. Watch the video below and then go to www.ronpaul2008.com/donate to invest in your freedom and the freedom of the ones you care about the most.

(Note: the date at the end of the video is incorrect. The date for the MLK donation day for Ron Paul is Jan. 21st, 2008.)
