What Ron Paul Wants

I read a great article in the WSJ today on What Ron Paul Wants. I agree with the article. Ron Paul makes me nervous. Not only does his pro-life record match the 50% of Harry Reid's, I think he uses "states' rights" as a cop out.

What about the Mann Act that prohibits crossing state lines selling sex? Is Mr. Paul fighting to get that repealed?If Mr. Paul is pro-life, hew would support a Constitutional Amendment ban abortion.  Without Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are not possible. Our founding fathers were clear that we all had the unalienable right to LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

States' rights is a valid argument, but we must realize that we live in an America where States' Rights have been watered down and where a Federal Government has often overstepped its bounds. We do need to work on giving rights back to the states, but we also need to protect the number one unalienable right, too. The right to life.  The Roe v Wade decision made abortion a federal issue and now we must work to defend life at the state AND federal level.

Well said. I have said it before and I will say it again--All rights come from our Creator. I generally prefer state rule over federal but honestly state rights are becoming some peoples false god. Nice blog. Hope to stop by more often.

God blessed each and everyone of us with FREE WILL. - the right to choose. A man has a choice, a slave obeys. If our creater wanted, he could have made us into mindless robots, programed to do that which is right. The Federal government has no right to interfere in the PERSONNAL choices we make in our lives.

I am, personnaly pro life, however I disagree with the notion that the Federal government has any say on this issue. There is a seperation of church and state in this country, and our federal government has no right federalizing social issues as per our Constitution.
