Elect A Statesman, Not A Politician
Ran into a supporter today who said Ron Paul is not a politician...he is a statesman. This is my new handle for Ron Paul. He's a statesman, not a politician. Democrat or Republican...we can expect the same from either. Conservative or liberal...doesn't mean much anymore. "Politician"...bad connotation nowdays.But statesman? Ron Paul is the only candidate who can be described in that way.
web definition of statesman from wordnet.princeton.edu is:a man who is a respected leader in national or international affairs
webnet definition of politician from same source:
# a leader engaged in civil administration
# a person active in party politics
# a schemer who tries to gain advantage in an organization in sly or underhanded ways
Perhaps there will never be a multi-million dollar library building funded by mega-wealthy globalists who profited from Ron Paul legislation. (Lobbyists for the mega-industries don't even bother to call on him because they know that they don't have anything to sell that he will buy.)
However, already there is a huge web library with more historical speeches, more good works than any ex-President I know. Ron Paul has no flip-flopping to hide...every record from the floor with his name on it is something that can go into his library. (Lord, what will Bush put in his library...Saddam's gun he is so proud of..video clips of him smearing bird poop on his jacket or saying Bring em in dead or alive...Mission Accomplished...Heckuva job, Brownie, etc.)
I tell people that the destruction of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is the root of most problems in this country. To understand Ron Paul on almost any issue, you have to be aware that the Constitution/Bill of Rights form his foundation on everything. That, I am convinced is the reason he is respected. He is a statesman...not a politician.
