The last hope for the Republic, Ron Paul, is a fiscally conservative senator from Texas who rails against big government and government spending.
Ron Paul’s supporters “love” his championing of the Constitution in this regard. Limited government. Lower taxes. More Freedom.
But is Ron Paul really for less government spending? The proof in the pudding is always pork projects for the local constituency. That’s the way politicians buy votes, right? Shouldn’t Ron Paul, the champion of the Constitution, be against pork barrel spending.
As they say on TV, let’s go to the tape. (local PDF link – link to original version). Can someone please remind me, which article of the Constitution allows for “Brazoria County Shore Protection”, “Cancer Center Expansion” “Chocolate Bayou” among other pork projects, many of which just -happen- to be in his local district. Very puzzling.
The Champion of the Constitution, indeed. Sure, come and say that he’s just working within the system and that when he’s elected he’ll change things. Then, in the next breath tell me that he doesn’t pass many bills because he can’t get people to agree with him – because he’s such a rigid supporter of constitutional ethics. Uh huh.
Ron Paul. The last hope. The best hope. For the Republic. Take the Red Pill. Ron Paul.
