For President in 2008: Ron Paul

He's a Republican Congressman from Texas, and his name is Ron Paul. He's widely known as being more Libertarian than Republican. I am now registered Republican, because I believe that it is time for the vast majority of Republican incumbents to be ousted and disgraced, but that does not mean that the principles and policies inherent to the party are wrong. I would like to see a new breed of politicians take over the Grand Old Party and run with it, and Ron Paul is just the sort I have in mind. What do you think?

The original American patriots were those individuals brave enough to resist with force the oppressive power of King George. I accept the definition of patriotism as that effort to resist oppressive state power. The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility, and out of self interest -- for himself, his family, and the future of his country -- to resist government abuse of power. He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to the state.

Here's a little more about him:

Edit: I put up a picture of the right man.
