Early Value Voter debate observations.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketI'm watching the Value Voters debate, which uses a different format than the Fox debate and I am amazed by Ron Paul's answers.

If you are not familiar with the format, it works like this:
Yes or no questions are asked in general to the candidates. They then indicate their
answer either way with some minutes they can use to address a particular issue
if they wanted to do so.

So, back to the answers. Ron Paul is holding to his convictions. Some of the questions
seem to have easy answers especially pertaining to things that would seem to
have an obvious answer. Questions about intervention by the Federal government
in Sudan slavery issues, the Terri Schiavo case allowing her to die in peace, etc.
Things that have an obvious answer for intervention by the government. But not
Dr. Paul!! His adherence to the Constitution and smaller government makes him
answer no to these questions. He will not stand for Federal intervention when
it is not immediately needed or when it violates an individual's rights.

He is not interested in telling people what they want to hear. It looks like the
rest of the candidates are obviously doing so, Ron seems to be the only one
who will vote no time and time again. A transcript of the debate should be
very revealing and show us much about his dedication to liberty, smaller
government and non-intervention policies.

id say that would be a fairly accurate opinion of tonights debate. hopefully people can understand why he said no and get behind the constitution.

I agree...he did not pander, but voted constitutionally. In the end Huckabee and others will wash out. He took 2nd place...yes way behind Huckabee, but he will pick up the evangelical crowd. They will have no choice. Vote for Romney, Ghouliani, McCain, Fred Thompson, or Ron Paul. Then they will have no choice...Billary or Ron Paul.

Steal these images and spread them around the web...
