he is not a liberal.. he is a strict constitutionalist. there are more reasons than just his views on the drug war that make him the best candidate his views on limiting the government and taxes. he would work to bring back the value of the dollar. Cut billions of dollars being spent on healthcare, war, drug war, etc. most important are his views on foreign policy and how he presents the logic in why we are in the situation we're in today with terrorism and how we may have avoided events like 9/11 with a different foreign policy.. i have never been as interested in politics until ron paul has come to my attention.. he can really make a change.
