that Ron Paul gives libertarianism a good name. He has already done more for the cause of libertarians than the Libertarian Party has done in its entire existence. By nominating Bob Barr last election cycle in fact they pretty much destroyed their credibility. If anyone has diminished the influence of libertarian philosophy it is the Libertarian Party.
What many people do not appreciate is just how effective Dr. Paul will be as President. The power of the Presidential veto and the Constitutional responsibility given to the President to enforce ONLY Constitutional laws and regulations means that he can effectively repeal all the non-Constitutional laws on the Federal Register in his first year.
I have read many articles in which the writer opines that President Paul will not be able to advance his agenda due to opposition from the Congress. Once again i will say that they do not understand the power of the Presidential veto or the Constitution. With the relaxation of the regulatory grip the Federal government has on the American economy there will be an immediate unleashing of the tremendous power of the American people to create their own prosperity without government interference.
In addition to this he is the Commander in Chief of the armed forces and will be able to immediately end the wars and recall all the military from overseas bases. The economic effect of this will be dramatic and increase the optimism of the American people.
On the monetary front he will introduce competing currencies and open the Mint to gold and silver. He will immediately conduct a full audit of the Fed and put an end to their destruction of the American currency. This will return America to the forefront of the world economy and global trading. His tax policies will serve to augment this movement.
Finally he will be able as President to continue and expand his personal addresses in order to teach the people the meaning of libertarian philosophy. He will be able to balance the budget in three years and this will return the markets to un-manipulated confidence with corporations able to pay down debt with new equity and deal in sound money if they so wish.
This is just off the top of my head but I am VERY confident that a Ron Paul Presidency will avoid the worst of any crash and set the stage for a rapid recovery.
"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
