Reagan announced he was running on Nov. 13th 1979 with the Statue of Liberty as the backdrop.

Thanks. I didn't remember the date but recalled it being much later than now in the campaign cycle. It's a real shame that Newt messed in his nest. Newt is an expert at communicating the conservative concept.

How about only earmarking those things only permitted under the Constitution such as military spending.

Dr. Paul makes a good argument that all federal spending should be earmarked - i.e. every budgeted dollar should be allocated to a specific purpose.

I don’t think you understand what I’m saying. Paul could simply earmark those things passed in the spending bills which are authorized by the Constitution like defense spending and still bring back some of his constituents money to his district. Instead he earmarks all types of unconstitutional spending while wrapping himself in the Constitution. He’s a hypocrite.
