I decided to throw up some information about Ron Paul here so that you folks know where he stands on the issues.
Just like I did yesterday on a similar article about Harry Reid, I will highlight the positions I agree with him on in blue and positions I disagree with him on in red.
Believes that abortion is murder.
Supports getting the federal government out of the abortion business.
Supports ban on partial birth abortion.
Budget and Economy
Supports repealing the 16th Amendment.
Opposed the 2008 auto industry bailout.
Opposed the 2008 "stimulus" package.
Opposes affirmative action.
Opposes constitutional amendment to prohibit flag desecration.
Opposes the death penalty.
Opposes "hate crimes" legislation.
Opposes the war on drugs and thinks it has been a total failure.
Opposes military patrols to battle drugs.
Supports the legalization of medical marijuana.
Supports abolishing the Department of Education.
Supports school vouchers.
Energy and Oil
Opposes tax credits on renewable energy.
Opposes making oil cartels illegal.
Supports cutting off foreign aid to Israel and Arab nations.
Opposed to restricting US funding of the United Nations.
Supports abolishing government agencies with no constitutional role.
Supports compulsory term limits.
Opposes congressional pay raises.
Opposes ban on lawsuits against gun manufacturers.
Supports building a fence along Mexican border.
Supports declaring English as the official language of the U.S.
Supports personal retirement accounts over social security.
Supports the slow phasing out of social security.
Supports abolishing the IRS.
Supports ending the death tax.
So it appears that I agree with Ron Paul (at least based on these specific political issues) 89% of the time.
