article imageRon Paul announced 2012 Presidential bid

By Owen Weldon     May 13, 2011 in Politics
Ron Paul is certain that his message of limited government and personal liberty is catching on, that he has officially announced that he is running for president.
Ron Paul appeared on “Good Morning America” on Friday, and he made his bid for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination official. Paul firmly believes that it is his time now because many people are agreeing with what he has stood for and saying for the last 30 years.
Back in April a Gallup poll showed that 47 percent of Americans think that the current economic conditions are poor. Another Gallup poll in April also showed that many Americans (57 percent) had more confidence in their governors than the president, republicans or democrats in congress, according to Christianpost.
Paul called the federal government an intervener when it comes to foreign policy and personal liberty. Paul said that the federal government should not act in such a manner. Paul went on and said that the federal government should not interfere in foreign affairs, unless it was necessary, according to CBS news.
Paul said that the government should be given less authority on what goes on in peoples’ personal lives, such as drug use. He said that Americans have a freedom of choice with their bodies. Paul believes that some drugs, such as heroin, should not be illegal at a federal level.
According to the Huffington Post, this will mark Paul’s third bid for the White House. Paul ran in 1988 and 2008, and supports are expecting Paul to use the same strategy that he used in 2008, in 2012. Ron Paul has represented Texas, as a congressman, for almost 30 years now.
