The thing is he will only vote in a way which doesn't take away our liberties. Look at his voting record, and tell me which vote you are so concerned with. I am not saying he is perfect, and perhaps some of his votes may seem a little bit out there. If you understand the meaning behind the vote perhaps you would see the purpose behind it. The article you linked didn't actually look at why Mr. Paul voted the way he did. He votes in a way that people have their god given freedoms to pursue happiness, liberty, and prosperity. I am 1 of the big Paul supporters around, and will tell you right now that I don't agree with everything he says. The truth is though you will never find someone that has all the answers. He takes the social liberties of the left, and the financial liberties of the right, and merges them into a total freedom package.
Freedom according to Dr. paul is not for everyone in my opinion... in the spirit of laziness and full bellyness I will link you with another article that fully illustrates what I am concerned about...I really wanted to like him, but I cannot go there with this kind of voting record...I can elaborate perhaps tommorow but for now I must just go off to dreamland.. 10 good reasons NOT to vote for Ron Paul | MadMikesAmerica
At the end of the day I do not think there is a candidate that I will support.. The whole lot of them pretty much piss me off.
