Ron Paul is running for President as a Republican. He has been a member of the US House of Representatives for 18 years. In 1988 he ran for President on the Libertarian Ticket. People are taking note of his cause. Since October 2007 he has raised over 19 million dollars which is more than any Republican Candidate for President. He has said repeatedly that he believed our government at the Time of the Civil war should have come up with non-violent means to end slavery.

On Taxes: Wants to Get Ride of he the IRS and the Income Tax and fund the government first by cutting spending. There are tariffs, excise taxes, and user fees. Says by reducing the tax we would have a constitutional sized government.

On the Military: Says bring home the troops from around the world and stop being “The policemen for the World.” This could save hundreds of billions per year.

On Isreal: Stop economically supporting Israel so that we can end the dependence they have for us. Arabs get three times as much aid as the Israelis get, they would lose their support too.

On Drugs: Decriminalize on the national level and allow the states to decide their direction on currently illicit drugs.

While most would be refreshed by his plain speaking logic approach, his controversial stand on issues will make a successful run for president difficult.
