One doctor can heal our country better than 100 attorneys.

Dr. Paul is one of the few politicians who's credentials show both his intelligence, and where his heart is. Whereas, most of his opponents have names that end with Esq. I have friends who are attorneys, some of them are pretty damn smart. A very small few are actually principled.

But in general, Attorneys are trained to be paid advocates, hired guns. Their talents are bought by the highest bidder, to do their bidding, whether the attorney believes it's right or wrong. This is why having a government that is full of attorneys is a ripe target for corruption. These people are already trained and accepting of the notion of selling their principles and doing someone else's bidding.

The old saying, "if it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, it's a duck" holds quite true for judging our leaders. Regardless of what they tell you, their record is their integrity. Whether you support Ron Paul ideas or not, it's pretty damn hard to degrade the man's integrity by his voting record. And, if you think you've found an inconsistency in it, chances are you misunderstood or missed something.

Ron Paul has recognized for decades that what ails this country is government sprawl. People who whine that he did not support a program that would have benefited some group, are the same people who whine about getting a shot to make them healthier.

I think it's time we put a medical doctor in the office of the President, because this country needs some serious help. Dr. Ron Paul is the only candidate with the intelligence and integrity to actually perform the surgery.
