Ron Paul has been surging in the polls and I have not posted much about him. The reason being he strikes me as agreeable in some ways, such as civil liberties and strictly adhering to the Constitution, but in other ways he is more than controversial. Legalizing marijuana, pulling troops on a massive scale, abandoning Israel, ending the Fed---these ideas may seem attractive or appalling on the surface, but either way, many of the changes Ron Paul wants to implement are definitively radical and, therefore, difficult. Just look at how hard of a time our current radically liberal president is having deconstructing America and reconstructing it on a socialistic model.

Here are some quotes from Ron Paul:

“Lobbyists get paid more than Congressmen because they write more laws than we do.”

“The federal war on drugs is a total failure, at least let sick people have marijuana.”

“1913 wasn't a very good year. 1913 gave us the income tax, the 16th amendment and the IRS.”

“As recent as the year 2000 we won elections by saying we shouldn't be the policemen of the world, and that we should not be nation building. And its time we got those values back into this country.”

“I will always vote what I have promised, and always vote the Constitution, as well as I will not vote for one single penny that isn't paid for, because debt is the monster, debt is what's going to eat us up and that is why our economy is on the brink.”

“Just think of what Woodrow Wilson stood for: he stood for world government. He wanted an early United Nations, League of Nations. But it was the conservatives, Republicans, that stood up against him.”

“There is nothing wrong with describing Conservatism as protecting the Constitution, protecting all things that limit government. Government is the enemy of liberty. Government should be very restrained.”

“There is only one kind of freedom and that's individual liberty. Our lives come from our creator and our liberty comes from our creator. It has nothing to do with government granting it.”

“When the federal government spends more each year than it collects in tax revenues, it has three choices: It can raise taxes, print money, or borrow money. While these actions may benefit politicians, all three options are bad for average Americans.”

“You don't have freedom because you are a hyphenated American; you have freedom because you are an individual, and that should be protected.”

720.3 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day86.
