Ron Paul's Statement of Faith
The Covenent News ^ | July 21, 2007 | Rep. Ron Paul, MD.

Statement of Faith By Rep. Ron Paul, MD. The Covenant News ~ July 21, 2007

We live in times of great uncertainty when men of faith must stand up for our values and our traditions lest they be washed away in a sea of fear and relativism. As you likely know, I am running for President of the United States, and I am asking for your support.

I have never been one who is comfortable talking about my faith in the political arena. In fact, the pandering that typically occurs in the election season I find to be distasteful. But for those who have asked, I freely confess that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, and that I seek His guidance in all that I do. I know, as you do, that our freedoms come not from man, but from God. My record of public service reflects my reverence for the Natural Rights with which we have been endowed by a loving Creator.

I have worked tirelessly to defend and restore those rights for all Americans, born and unborn alike. The right of an innocent, unborn child to life is at the heart of the American ideal of liberty. My professional and legislative record demonstrates my strong commitment to this pro-life principle.

In 40 years of medical practice, I never once considered performing an abortion, nor did I ever find abortion necessary to save the life of a pregnant woman. In Congress, I have authored legislation that seeks to define life as beginning at conception, H.R. 1094. I am also the prime sponsor of H.R. 300, which would negate the effect of Roe v Wade by removing the ability of federal courts to interfere with state legislation to protect life. This is a practical, direct approach to ending federal court tyranny which threatens our constitutional republic and has caused the deaths of 45 million of the unborn. I have also authored H.R. 1095, which prevents federal funds to be used for so-called “population control.” Many talk about being pro-life. I have taken and will continue to advocate direct action to restore protection for the unborn.

I have also acted to protect the lives of Americans by my adherence to the doctrine of “just war.” This doctrine, as articulated by Augustine, suggested that war must only be waged as a last resort--- for a discernible moral and public good, with the right intentions, vetted through established legal authorities (a constitutionally required declaration of the Congress), and with a likely probability of success.

It has been and remains my firm belief that the current United Nations-mandated, no-win police action in Iraq fails to meet the high moral threshold required to wage just war. That is why I have offered moral and practical opposition to the invasion, occupation and social engineering police exercise now underway in Iraq. It is my belief, borne out by five years of abject failure and tens of thousands of lost lives, that the Iraq operation has been a dangerous diversion from the rightful and appropriate focus of our efforts to bring to justice to the jihadists that have attacked us and seek still to undermine our nation, our values, and our way of life.

I opposed giving the president power to wage unlimited and unchecked aggression, However, I did vote to support the use of force in Afghanistan. I also authored H.R. 3076, the September 11 Marque and Reprisal Act of 2001. A letter of marque and reprisal is a constitutional tool specifically designed to give the president the authority to respond with appropriate force to those non-state actors who wage aggression against the United States while limiting his authority to only those responsible for the atrocities of that day. Such a limited authorization is consistent with the doctrine of just war and the practical aim of keeping Americans safe while minimizing the costs in blood and treasure of waging such an operation.

On September 17, 2001, I stated on the house floor that “…striking out at six or eight or even ten different countries could well expand this war of which we wanted no part. Without defining the enemy there is no way to know our precise goal or to know when the war is over. Inadvertently more casual acceptance of civilian deaths as part of this war I'm certain will prolong the agony and increase the chances of even more American casualties. We must guard against this if at all possible.” I’m sorry to say that history has proven this to be true.

I am running for president to restore the rule of law and to stand up for our divinely inspired Constitution. I have never voted for legislation that is not specifically authorized by the Constitution. As president, I will never sign a piece of legislation, nor use the power of the executive, in a manner inconsistent with the limitations that the founders envisioned.

Many have given up on America as an exemplar for the world, as a model of freedom, self-government, and self-control. I have not. There is hope for America. I ask you to join me, and to be a part of it.

Sincerely,

Ron Paul

Embrace no, seek to control it in a conservative way, yes.

Reality check. You are on the World Wide Web right now. Reality Check, your PC, car and basically everything else you use is built by companies that have interest world wide. You think that is going away? If so shut down you PC and mail in your comments.

We have invented or developed basically every advance the world has known. We few people (302 Million of us) constitute the largest single national economy, in large part due to our role as a world player. The economies under us such as Japan are economies we created. Playing in the global economy is different then a one world government. You have to separate global political movements from global economic ones. Which is where the problem lies. Sovereignty yes, isolationism no. The liberal bent for "we are the world, let's hug" is riding the peoples desire for new products and the free markets desire for competitive labor

You want to place blame for why this is not working out currently then blame the unions who price our labor out of sight, blame the bad management who can’t control spending, but that is no reason to call it quits. That would destroy us either directly because our economy would collapse, or in the long run when the Chinese, Russians and EU see us ripe for the pickings because they have had a chance to catch up in technology and build up in strength and we have a lot of resources. I am as patriotic as the next guy but there is no way even if we armed the whole country we could beat that short of a nuclear exchange, then who would give a damn about liberalism, conservatism or any ism since there would be none.

Lock down the boarder, deal with the hand we let the politicians deal us and keep us out there as a global force, albeit in a better manner than we approach it now, so that we set the tone of global affairs as much as possible. Preferable the US government that does that is a conservative but realistic one. This is the 21st Century, not the 19th.

These groups are attacking us. This cannot go without a swift, violent, and decisive response.

Bush's "Democracy building" exercise has never worked any time it was tried before. Smash them. Destroy them. Then rebuild on the rubble. This ongoing "police action" is lunacy...

What statements of Ron Paul make you think that this is not his position EXACTLY? He wants to trade with friendly nations (there has never been a war between two nations which are vigorous active trading partners), and brutally/aggressively/decisively go after nations and fringe groups who mean us harm.

The problem with the Paulietrolls is that they are so stupid when it comes to the constitution, and so contemptuously dismissive of it, and so pathetically dishonest in they way they frame things, that you have to give them a course on constitutional government to answer their silly nit pickings.

However, the REAL problems come when those decerebrates have something to say. And WHAT THEY SAY IS MORE DANGEROUS TO AMERICA THAN ANY FAILURE OF RON PAUL'S FOREIGN POLICY. This is because they are glibly ignorant or dismissive of the foundational tenet of law in this country, and that is that law rules, not men. These boobs may have a social vision for America which approximates that of conservatives, but the mode for achieving it puts them squarely in the camp with the lefto fascist crowd. I say they are liberals in drag who are just too stupid to know it, as they use the same reasoning and the same insistence on power grabbing, law defying, constitution-ignoring in order to "do good." Most of em are Reagan democrats who came in to the party in the 80s but never really got rid of their love for government power. They are fascists at heart, but just believe in the possibility of "good fascists" who will pull the power levers in a right way. They are politically naive fools.

Sometimes Paulietrolls are simply gibbering idiots who think they are being clever by posting pictures of jihadists a.... over and over and over and over.....(thanks for your, by the way. It was cute the first 587 times you put it up.)

Your previous rants on why Ron Paul voted "NO" on the congressional resolution to condemn the Iranian president is an example. Only Ron Paul and Kucinich voted no. I have no idea why Kucinich voted how he did, but Ron Paul did so because IT IS NOT THE JOB OF THE CONGRESS TO DO FOREIGN POLICY. As much as Ron Paul may disagree with the job Bush is doing, he is not going to drive a carriage and four thru the Constitution because he doesn't like it.

One more classic example/illustration of this is Ron Paul's vote on foreign aid to Israel. Of course he voted "NO" because he is, in principle, against such aid (it is not the delegated job of the congress to "aid" foreign contries, besides being unwise). Yet the slobbering halfwits come into these threads over and over bellowing about how Ron Paul is "anti Israel." STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID and furthermore, too stupid even to know they are stupid. Worse than that, they are stupid TROLLS.

But yeah, they are "patriots" alright. They will march us straight into fascism with the flag flying and will be SO proud of themselves for doing it.

You are one classy guy. I have come to verbal blows with a number of freepers on a number of issues, so the respect thing is not based on whether or not we agree. I have publicly stated that I am wrong on a number of issues, and I hope to do so in the future (how else can I say that I learn?).

The difference between the sincere posters and the trolls is, I believe, the ability to say, "you know, I think there is more to this than I thought."

The former is what makes this more than just a mudwrestling ego screamfest.

Thank you again, simply for being classy.

OK, I have seen it before, but I looked again. I agree with it whole heartily both as an employee and a former business owner. I see nothing on business and trade other than business will finally be taxed fairly. The still need markets to peddle their wares. That has to come before their is any talk of taxes, there has to be somethig to tax.

So what does it have to do with anything we were talking about?

The fairtax would make globalism irrelevant, insofar as our need to engage it. The rest of the planet would have to engage the US on our economic terms, if they wanted to deal with the greatest economic tax haven and investment powerhouse the planet has ever seen. Further, they would be compelled to institute similar freedom based economic environments if they wanted to survive long term, because without a doubt, some other visionary nations would. It’s nationalistic and free at the same time, to the benefit of free citizens.

Globalism is not a necessary reality. There are ways to overcome it without jeopardizing our sovereignty on one hand, and our propserity on the other.

But a plan like the Fairtax wouldn’t provide the elites with the leverage they need to gain power over us. They would simply become one of us, and that’s apparently not good enough for them.

Globalism? We have to accept the fact that the rights we enjoy have been bestowed from Above. As such they do not end where our borders end. These ideals will, and do, hold sway in many places where we wish peacefully to do business, even if it means doing business with people who differ significantly in what it means to be “free.”

There are good business people in these countries you may, at least on the surface, despise. If a few of them want to raise chickens in their backyard or rebuild engines on their kitchen tables I have no problem with that (within reason).

If there were a way to equitably equalize the disparities evidenced in Mexican and (less pronouncedly) Canadian economic practices, then there is little reason to discourage a more transparent relationship between the three. The natural resources north and south of us are incredible, and the people on either side are, by and large, not nearly as stupid as liberal Democrats.

There is. Competition.

If the populations of these countries refuse to rise up and demand freedom from control freaks, they don't deserve it.

At least, that's what Ben Franklin said about certain colonists.

OK we are not that far off, just coming from different angles and perhaps minor variations in terms.

First in thinking of taxes and the fair tax or reduction and /or elimination of corporate tax to generate interest in American markets, you are correct, I have thought of that myself, just in different terms. Fair tax needs work that in the site, I did not see it out or at least emphasis it more, it is a strong selling point to guys like me.

I think I can explain my thoughts better by saying globalization vs Globalism. I am by no means in favor of one world government (unless it’s all under the US, I think Japan would make a nice 51-55th state. OK just kidding, kind of... ;-)) or wide open boarders. However, having a big stake in global business is another issue, there are 6 billion customers out there vs 302 million here. As a capitalist I like those odds.

The point you made about fair tax would help keep that balance in our favor.

So control the boarder, but don’t lock us down against legal immigration and trade, and promote conservative capitalist ideals to the world. Make the processes, production and people work to our favor, our benefit (and theirs by default, even if they realize it)

I read his statement in the same way. There's "inspiration" (i.e., our mostly-Christian founders being led by the Holy Spirit in prayer to use their God-given mental and spiritual gifts to write an enduring Constitution), and then there's Verbal Plenary Inspiration, the Special Revelation which we Christians believe is uniquely characteristic of the Old and New Testaments. I don't believe that Dr. Paul was putting them on the same level.

I'm not so sure. If a hypothetical President Ron Paul were to take the step of unilaterally withdrawing the United States from the U.N. (and while I may be corrected, he might well be able to do so by executive order, as much as he would probably prefer NOT to exercise power in that way), ...

He might refuse to even appoint a U.N. ambassador. Or he might appoint one but not allow him to attend sessions. Except to veto every action of the Security Council so they're completely paralyzed.

Ron Paul has kind of a thing about the United Nations. LOL. So do I.

Have any of the other candidates talked about how they would get the US out of the United Nations?

His statement tells me nothing about Dr. Paul that I didn’t already know. There is more integrity and class in Dr. Ron Paul then there is in in entire Beltway body politic combined. He is the answer for millions of Americans who believe we have lost control of our Government. I would like to see him elected just to see the reaction of the arrogant elite who believe it is their providence to rule over us.

The establishment hand picked candidates have failed this country time and again. If we keep doing the same thing and settling for the corporate media approved candidate again and again then we deserve what we get and will continue on the path we are going. No conservative wants that.

You are so right. People who call Paul names just don’t have the integrity to take a hard look at all the empty promises. Voting Paul a republican into office would put the Republican Party back into it’s place and let them know we will no longer accept their sell outs.
