One of the good guys . . .
I don't really want to bore anyone by harping on the same theme all the time, but I want to mention that Ron Paul is gaining momentum in his run seeking nomination for U. S. President. He is getting at least some attention from the mainstream media now, and he has even appeared on Bill Maher's show and on Jay Leno's Tonight Show.
And: Ron Paul, with the help of thousands of volunteers and contributors, raised over four million dollars yesterday, in one day!
You have to admire the guy. He is principled, steadfast, squeaky clean, consistent, bright, and has good instincts. At 72 years of age, why would he run for president? I believe that he genuinely cares about his country and that he would continue to promote adherence to the Constitution of the United States of America -- unlike the other yahoos, from all parties, who see the Constitution as archaic and inconvenient.
Go, Ron Paul! Wouldn't it be something if one of the good guys actually came in first for once? Or is that too much to ask?
