Texas Republican Congress member and presidential candidate Ron Paul is refreshingly candid. Too many candidates for public office base and/or change their views on issues of the day upon responses from voter focus groups and polling.
Agree or disagree with presidential candidate Ron Paul, you know that his thoughts are original, authentic and based on principles. This may be why he is polling first with under-30, first time and independent voters. All three are critical in building a winning coalition in the November General Election.
Many voters like Paul's consistent defense of both economic and civil liberties. They can agree with Paul that what consenting adults consume, inhale, perform, read or view in the privacy of their own home or private social club isn't the concern of government. Individual economic and civil liberties prosper best when government stays out of both the bedroom and marketplace.
Ron Paul offers voters a real choice versus the other GOP presidential candidates who collectively offer more of the status quo.
