    I am waiting on pins and needles and I hope Iowains will come through to lead Americans’ charge to take back this country and put it on the right track. Throw the money hungry bums out and let this man do what needs to be done.

    I believe in Ron Paul, because he is not a flip flopper, he says what he means and means what he says. He is not bought and paid for by any special interests, only interested voters who are tired of the BS in Washington. Why is it that the Federal Govt
    has so much to parlay in $$$ when it comes to Congress, but the average Joe gets screwed, blued, and tattooed. Ron Paul is the real deal. Do you blame him for his foreign policy? Do you think he is stupid not to want a strong defense in the absence of another war involvement? Not a chance. He will collect the people of this country and form a new coalition of support, pride, and nationalism in this country that has never been seen before. He’s a not a simple man. He’s committed to morality, strong ideals, and keeping us free. If you want to be bound for four more years, after the likes of Obama, Romney will not be much better. He does not represent the Judeo Christian point of view, because he is not a Christian. Do your homework on what Mormons believe. Nothing radical, but non-the-less a maze of complex, untrustworthy
    theology that is all over the place. Ron Paul in 2012!
