Remember Ron Paul

The MSU Standard: This month, when I found out that Ron Paul is retiring, I began to cry sad, salty Libertarian tears.

I know this isn’t a reason to cry for everyone, but it should be.

The neoconservatives among you are bitterly muttering that Ron Paul is a crackpot, so his retirement doesn’t matter. The die-hard liberals among you are squinting and saying, “Isn’t that the guy who wants to legalize weed? But most of you have probably only heard Ron Paul’s name in passing. Although the news of his retirement is gracing few headlines, it is better late than never to get informed.

Basically, Ron Paul is a warrior.

First, he was a medical officer, doctoring wounded soldiers. Then, he delivered roughly 4,000 babies. Then, he saw how screwed up things were getting in the government and became a wildly popular Texas senator. Then, he ran for president three times.

What follows is a brief summary of Ron Paul’s political career.

CORRECTION: He was a CONGRESSMAN - not a SENATOR.

I like the spirit of the article but you have to get the facts right first.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

i like the spirit too, but

i don't like the word retiring. i'd say he is free from the snake pit, and it's full speed ahead for ron paul and the freedom movement. the planned college tour could have been mentioned, and that i believe will only be the beginning.

Her article would be a great narrative

for a video with some appropriate music.

It's beyond my abilities . . .

Magna est veritas, et prevalebit. Truth is most powerful, and will ultimately prevail.

Thank you Ms. Brown for the wonderful article about Dr. Paul.

Well done!
