So I figured that it would be fun to list two more reasons as to why Ron Paul kicks ass politician. Here are a few more of the reasons why.
1: He’s tells the truth
Ron Paul doesn’t just call it like he see’s it he says things very bluntly and plainly. This is a huge step when it comes to anyone who was involved in politics. For fear of alienating the wrong people be it voters, other politicians or people who can line your pocketbook our politicians will often remain quiet on subjects or attempt to be diplomatic. Ron Paul however has always been very blunt and straightforward. The number of examples is likely to many to count honestly. This includes his pointing out of the coming housing crisis/bubble influenced due to government caused regulations and inflation, criticizing the many failures of the wars in the Middle East and our need for withdrawal, along with calling out Congress and the government themselves for failure to deliver on promises to the American people. One of his most well known items he addressed was his what if speech.
In this speech he addressed the many what if possibilities due to our actions overseas and what harm could happen because of them. Very few politicians have ever so bluntly stated that our foreign policy is flawed and will cause more harm then good. At a presidential debate he went as far to point out that not everyone in the Middle East welcomes us and we should consider the golden rule of not invading other countries since we would not wish to be invaded despite the fact that some people in the crowd disagreed with him. These things all show true moral character and principal no matter what.
2: No government waste
During his long time in Congress of almost 30 years Paul was notated as always being a frugal politician something which was rare. During the last presidential campaign he ran it was noted that his office was one of the few to actually give money back to the Federal Government. Money which had been allocated for them to spend but instead they managed to stay under their overall budget. This actually seems to be common place for Paul who stayed at or under budget multiple times. Actions like this speak for themselves as well. In a time where our government has become more and more wasteful rare politicians like Paul show people who actually care about leading by example instead of all talk about cuts and changes to our government.
