Congressman from Lake Jackson,Texas in the metro Houston area. He works as a medical doctor. He has been a consistent classical liberal or libertarian as congressman and a presidential candidate (as a Republican in 2008 and a Libertarian in 1988). He holds to a consistent constitutionalist position upholding the Lockean political philosophy that the United States was founded upon. He argues for a nighwatchman view of the State consistent with the Jeffersonaian view of the U.S. Constitution.

On social issues Congressman Paul is a conservative. He supports the right to life and opposes abortion on demand. He also opposes open borders policy on immigration realizing that it is crucial to protect the culture the American political, legal, and economic system is rooted in. Even though some of his supporters are social and moral nihilists, Paul has maintained a consistent social conservatism and realizes that the main source of leftist attack on American traditions has been the Federal government. Even though he supports drug and sex deregulation, he has never endorsed illicit drug use or aberrant sexual practices. His position is to allow nature to take its course with reckless and immoral behavior rather than placing such behavior on par with traditional morality.

This same logic is present in his economic policy. Companies or individuals who can create new products or services that people choose to buy because they perceive these products or services can help them should be free to prosper. Those who offer poor quality products or services should be allowed to fail. Government should only provide basic rules for these pursuits to take place, such as prevention of fraud and enforcing contracts. As Milton Friedman used to say, the market forces people to "put up or shut up." This maxim applies to life-styles as well as business enterprises.
I am voting for Ron Paul because he stands for the principles Jefferson articulated in 1776 in the Declaration of Independence.

is an American drag performer, dance music singer, actor, and songwriter who gained worldwide fame in the 1990s; appearing in a wide variety of television programs, films, and musical albums. Though a catty attitude is often associated with drag queens, Ron Paul intentionally displayed a "love one another" attitude to be set apart from them. Although primarily known for an extravagant drag queen persona, Ron Paul has performed as a man in a number of roles, usually billed as Dr. Ron Paul.
"Ron Paul is a famous American entertainer who brings joy to everyone with his flamboyancy. He has also delivered twenty thousand babies."

I can't remember the last time a US presidential candidate (or British MP for that matter) looked so good. He's got more bottom than all the rest of those opportunistic hack nobodies combined. American non-voters don't have any excuse this time. You get to choose between him, some compromised douchebag like Giuliani and oblivion under the unspeakable Hilary Clinton.
That bastard wouldn't let me in to vote for Ron Paul. Some bollocks about not being a US citizen.
