Why Ron Paul is Good for America
If Barack Obama had 10 percent the conviction for the views he stated in 2008 that Ron Paul has for the views he has stated for decades the American economy and political landscape would be dramatically different and in my view, dramatically better. Let’s set aside our policy differences for a moment and consider the Ron Paul phenomenon, and why Ron Paul continues to have such dramatic impact on our political debate, despite contemptuous treatment he receives from the mass media.

Ron Paul has two things that very few politicians have. First, he has clearly defined opinions and visions for America which he has advocated with clarity and courage for decades. Second, he has a significant number of devoted supporters who share his opinions and visions, believe strongly in his personal integrity, and extend themselves by giving their time and their donations to his cause, which is their cause, which they believe is Amerca's cause.

The issue is not whether I agree with Paul or not. Sometimes I do, often I do not. The issue is that Ron Paul is the kind of conviction politician (to use Margaret Thatcher's excellent phrase) that America needs. In my world, Robert Kennedy was that kind of politician. I once hoped Obama would be, but now we know he is not. Ronald Reagan was a conviction politician. So was Ted Kennedy.

Politics should be a clash of competing ideas, not a vanity play for those with large egos, or an eBay auction where big money buys government, which sadly is the case today.
