Still On The Fence?
Still on the fence about Ron Paul? Then read this piece from Dr. Voddie Baucham. Below is just one of the reasons he gives and since I think the monetary issue is “THE” issue I’ve highlighted his comments here. I know, I know, some will say, “Well, what about abortion”? Yes, abortion is a great evil, but last I checked the federal government does not compel or coerce any woman to kill her own child. On the other hand, the federal government does compel and coerce us to accept their paper as legal tender. Besides, had abortions continued to be regulated at the state level, which they were prior to 1973, and despite the bloviating of that theocratic fascistic boob in Moscow, there is no telling the countless lives that could have been saved (but then having abortions legalized by the federal judiciary has provided a vehicle for all sorts of statist faux-Conservatives, including the current crop of Republicans running for the nomination, to wrap themselves in an issue in order to get votes without ever having to do anything). Or, maybe your concern with Paul is his foreign policy, which in some ersatz-Christian circles means “support for Israel.” Well, Voddie’s got your answer to those questions too. So here is just a taste:
I support Ron Paul because he has a constitutional view of money. He is the only candidate consistently to confront the Federal Reserve Bank (which is not federal, has no reserves, and is not a bank), and address the issue of fiat currency (a.k.a. unjust weights and measures; Lev 19:36; Prov 16:11), which debases the dollar, manipulates business cycles, creates inflation, and always benefits the rich at the expense of the poor and disenfranchised. And he talks about the issue in just those terms.
Congressman Paul is also the only candidate who has a budget that will cut a TRILLION DOLLARS in spending in year one. He is the only candidate who has committed to defund and eliminate expensive, unconstitutional agencies. This is crucial for a country headed for an economic cliff. Our debt is larger than our GDP and we simply must address it NOW (Luke 14:28)! This is arguably the most important issue we face, and while others want to tinker with the status quo, Dr. Paul wants to do the hard thing; the right thing; the biblical thing; the constitutional thing.
