If you want another big-government politician who supports the status
quo to run our country, you should vote for my uncle, Rick Santorum.
America is based on a strong belief in individual liberty. My uncle’s
interventionist policies, both domestic and foreign, stem from his
irrational fear of freedom not working.
It is not the government’s job
to dictate to individuals how they must live. The Constitution was
designed to protect individual liberty. My Uncle Rick cannot fathom a
society in which people cooperate and work with each other freely. When
Republicans were spending so much money under President Bush, my uncle
was right there along with them as a senator. The reason we have so much
debt is not only because of Democrats, but also because of big-spending Republicans like my Uncle Rick.
It is because of this inability of status quo politicians to
recognize the importance of our individual liberties that I have been
drawn to Ron Paul. Unlike my uncle, he does not believe that the
American people are incapable of forming decisions. He believes that an
individual is more powerful than any group (a notion our founding
fathers also believed in).
Another important reason I support Ron Paul is his position on
foreign policy. He is the only candidate willing to bring our troops
home, not only from the Middle East, but from around the world.
Ron Paul seems to be the only candidate trying to win the election for a reason other than simply winning the election.
This year, I’ll vote for an honest change in our government. I’ll
vote for real hope. I’ll vote for a real leader. This year, I will vote
for Ron Paul.
John Garver is a 19-year-old student at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. John is a strong supporter of Ron Paul despite his love for family member Rick Santorum.
