What Does Ron Paul Stand For?

I suppose that many people, perhaps even the majority of Ozarkers, don’t know who Congressman Ron Paul is. Getting his name out there is the biggest hurdle we have to face.
Once people find out about Dr. Paul; that he is running for president in the Republican primaries and that he can indeed win, they naturally are interested to know what he stands for.
Well, where to begin? Dr. Paul’s stances are so extensive and sincere, that they appeal to a diverse assortment of individuals.
One can say that Dr. Paul is a strict Constitutionalist. Ordinary Americans like you and I are in usually in favor of the Constitution even though they almost always vote against it in general elections.
But let us be more detailed. As a strict Constitutionalist, Dr. Paul is not inhibited by a desire to engage in meaningless partisan politics. The bills he introduces are for the benefit of the American people.
Dr. Paul is always there to ask that age-old question, “Why not Liberty?” when no one else will.
The bills he sponsors were created to benefit ordinary Americans, small businessmen and women, farmers, parents, churches.
We should acquaint ourselves with each and every one of Dr. Paul’s positions, because the queries will only increase over the next few months as tensions begin to mount in the primaries.
Here, Jennifer Haman reveals some of Dr. Paul’s “secret views.”

An Excerpt:

Ron Paul offers truth. Did you know that it is illegal for a dietary supplement company to make a true statement about its products because the big pharmaceuticals want all your business and cannot stand the thought of you taking a cheap herbal remedy? Ron Paul introduced the Health Freedom Protection Act so that the FDA cannot stand in your way of hearing truthful claims about the benefits of foods and dietary supplements. Ron Paul offers hope to your family over the profits of huge companies. Yes, you can have someone on your side.

Did you know that emergency rooms are going out of business because of legislation passed by Congress? Under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) physicians who work in emergency rooms are required to provide care, regardless of a person's ability to pay, to anyone who comes into an emergency room. Hospitals are also required by law to bear the full costs of providing free care to anyone who seeks emergency care. Thus, EMTALA forces medical professionals and hospitals to bear the entire cost of caring for the indigent. Many institutions simply cannot afford the strain. Ron Paul seeks to offset those costs with tax credits to physicians with a new bill he introduced.

Ron Paul offers freedom to churches to exercise their freedom of speech in the political arena. Did you know that the IRS has sent notices to more than 15,000 non-profit organizations – including churches – regarding its new crackdown on political activity? Ron Paul writes: "We cannot allow churches to be silenced any more than we can allow political dissent in general to be silenced." "The Constitution's guarantee of religious freedom must not depend on the whims of IRS bureaucrats." You don't have to go it alone; you can have a candidate who fights for you.

Ron Paul also fights for a parent's right to raise their child the way they see fit and to make their own decisions about whether to medicate away their child’s behavior. The government wants to take that choice away from you. The government is calling for the mandatory mental health screening of American schoolchildren, meaning millions of kids will be forced to undergo psychiatric screening whether their parents consent or not. Ron Paul introduced an amendment to eliminate any funding for the proposal. He also introduced a bill that forbids federal funds from being used for any mental-health screening of students without the express, written, voluntary, informed consent of their parents. The bill is known as "The Parental Consent Act of 2005," or HR 181. Ron Paul will fight the government as it tries to take over the most basic of rights: the right to raise your child.

As far as the working man is concerned, Ron Paul also wants to help out there. He wants to get rid of the Income tax. I hear all the time: that is not practical, that is not possible, and we need the income tax. I say okay, but would you like it if the Income Tax was gone? The answer is always yes. Well, you can have what you want. Under Ron Paul's plan, we only need to return to the spending levels of the year 2000 to be able to eliminate the Income tax. In fact, the Income tax is only one of many, many different taxes and tariffs that the government seizes to collect money and without this one particular tax, the government can run just fine. So, you see, you can have what you want. You really can have freedom. If you truly want to keep your whole paycheck, what is stopping you? All you need to do is vote for Ron Paul.

Do you think your medical information should be kept private? Yes? So does Ron Paul. The government on the other hand disagrees. Under a bill passed a few years ago, rather than protecting the individual’s right to medical privacy, the government issued regulations empowering government officials to determine how much medical privacy an individual "needs.'' The regulations also require health care providers to give medical records to the federal government for inclusion in a federal health care database. Ron Paul fought that for you and introduced the Patient Privacy Act to repeal these threats to patient privacy and provide quality health care. Yes, it is possible to get Big Brother off your back and out of your most private and intimate issues. Again, all you have to do is vote for Ron Paul.

There is a psychiatric / pharmaceutical plan to "suicide screen" every child in the United States before they graduate from high school. Evidence exists that shows massive pharmaceutical backing that will result in even more overdrugging of kids with psychiatric drugs .

Can you take a moment to view this very short video? Click here:

And then sign and forward this petition http://www.petitiononline.com/TScreen/petition.html to your associates and everyone you know? It already has over 23,000 signatures.

It's simply a race to inform enough parents so something can be done about this.
