Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul tells CNN why he thinks President Obama violated the War Powers Resolution.
“I will promise you this if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president it is the first thing I will do I will get our troops home and bring an end to this war you can take that to the bank.” Barack Obama 2007. For those that may not know, their is a movie titled the Obama Deception which just like the quote above points out numerous empty promises made by our current president. When I see what Ron Paul stands for and his voting record in congress to back up his statements it is clear to me that the U.S. could really use a leader with that sort of conviction and integrity. I love to see Ron Paul debate and the reactions of some of the moderators who try to down play what he talks about and what he stands for. Enjoy the video.
Obama and the change we could believe in continue to disappoint. What happened to the promise of pulling out of Iraq and bringing our troops home? Well it was clear that was an empty promise when the president gave the go to enter Afghanistan. But this apparently is not enough because now news is circulating that the U.S. is engaging Libya. To make matters worse it seems that the president did so without the approval of congress. Thankfully Ron Paul has decided to sue the Obama administration as the constitution stipulates that the declaration of war power lies in the hands of congress. Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution gives Congress — not the president — the authority to declare war.
Judge Andrew Napolitano talks about Congressman Ron Paul defending the Constitution and about how Congressman Paul is changing the conversation from “how much should the government interfere with our free choices” to “whether the government should interfere at all”.
“I would not wait for my generals I am the commander in chief, I make the decisions” Ron Paul
The above quote was said in response to pulling out our troops. Mitt Romney answered that he would consider pulling out if the generals would back him. I would definitely want a president that can answer as above.
Ron Paul certainly gets a big applause from us! According to a post on LA Times blog Ron Paul was applauded 11 times during the republican debate, no other candidate received more then 5. See link below:
