Where Ron Paul stands on some of the issues:
Paul is a man of faith. He is a Protestant Christian
and a regular churchgoer.
Paul is pro-life. As a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology,
he has delivered more than 4,000 babies. Dr. Paul is not just an
opponent of partial-birth abortion; he is an opponent of abortion
itself. He is also opposed to federal funding of embryonic stem
Paul is a believer in family values. Unlike many
Christian "leaders" and Republican politicians who have admitted
to adulterous affairs and/or been married multiple times, Dr. Paul
has been married to the same woman for fifty years. He and his wife
have been blessed with five children and seventeen grandchildren.
Paul is opposed to same-sex marriage. Although
he doesn't want to strip homosexuals of their civil rights, he has
voted to prohibit federal funding for the joint adoption of a child
between individuals who are not related by blood or marriage.
Paul is a veteran and is opposed to the war in Iraq.
He voted to keep us out of the Iraq war because pre-emptive war
goes against the Christian philosophy of a just war.
Paul is opposed to unrestricted immigration and
amnesty for illegal aliens. Because he believes that true citizenship
requires cultural connections and an allegiance to the United States,
he favors an end to birthright citizenship. And because he believes
that it insults legal immigrants, he does not favor amnesty for
illegal immigrants in any form. He opposes welfare state subsidies
for illegal immigrants that alienate taxpayers and breed suspicion
of immigrants. Dr. Paul also believes that all federal government
business should be conducted in English.
Paul is against the tyranny imposed on the American people by our
Government through the IRS and has vowed to reform our tax system.
He opposes the Federal Reserve and our current fiat monetary
Paul is a strict constitutionalist. He never votes
for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized
by the Constitution. He has consistently voted to lower or abolish
federal taxes, spending, and regulation. Congressman Paul was recently
recognized, for the tenth year in a row, as a "Taxpayer's Friend"
by the National Taxpayers Union.
Paul is opposed to the United Nations. He has introduced
legislation to withdraw the United States from the UN. Dr. Paul
believes that the UN is rife with corruption. It serves as a forum
for rampant anti-Americanism. Instead of being reformed, the UN
needs to be renounced. Dr. Paul is against any kind of world government
or new world order.
Paul is the premier advocate for liberty in politics
today. He believes in absolute religious and political liberty for
all Americans. He strongly supports private property rights. He
believes that government exists to protect the life, liberty, and
property of its citizens.
RON PAUL IN HIS OWN WORDS:
• On his belief that the Constitution
no longer is at the center of the government: "Ninety-nine
percent of everything in the Constitution is to restrict the federal
government — it's not to restrain the people. And yet today
the people are being restrained and the government isn't restrained.
And the people no longer have their privacy and the government has
all the secrecy"
• On his belief that the war in Iraq
is unconstitutional because Congress didn't provide a declaration
of war: "If you give up one part of the Constitution,
you give up the whole thing because it becomes arbitrary for the
executive branch and the judicial branch and the legislative branch.
And that's where we are — we are an arbitrary government today.
The government does what they please with no restraint"
• On his campaign drawing supporters
from across the political spectrum: "There is only
one thing — the Constitution and freedom — that brings
people together. And it's not divisive. We are not confrontational
and we're very tolerant of other people's views. That's why individuals
can come no matter what views they have"
• On the Federal Reserve injecting more
than $100 billion of extra liquidity into the banking system to
stabilize a stock market rattled by the U.S. subprime mortgage implosion:
"Who is going to pay for that? The taxpayer will pay
for that. The people in the financial markets that took all these
risks, they are getting bailed out. I think the average guy knows
a lot more about that than anybody gives them credit for"
• On his campaign: "In
many ways what we are doing is sort of a stealth campaign. Maybe
ignoring us for a while isn't all that bad, as long as we do the
work and show up with the votes"
