Reading through the Wikipedia entry on Ron Paul, it depicts perfect common sense on all his positions whether or not you agree with any and/or all of them. It is bewildering that this cannot be said of all the other candidates. Can the other candidates show such a record of consistency? Whether Ron Paul wins the election or not, should we not look at his platform favorably? Are we doomed to the eternal bickering, back stabbing, bi-partisan and ego driven politicians we have known for over a generation or two? Or, are we ready to make a real change from the status quo to common sense government?

Thank you for your time.
