“only a change in the engineer of a runaway train…”–Ron Paul

November 12, 2008

I have to be grateful to CNN for continuing to highlight Ron Paul.  Congressman Paul challenges the premise that Obama’s administration will bring about change, despite the overwhelming use of the “change” mantra throughout the election.

“There’s no doubt that a large majority of Americans believe we’re on the wrong track. That’s why the candidate demanding “change” won the election. It mattered not that the change offered was no change at all, only a change in the engineer of a runaway train,” Ron Paul observed.

In his commentary, Ron Paul outlines the values to which our nation should return in order to reverse the damage done by wayward politics and the failure of the Republican Party to maintain a conservative ethos.  These values would include:

• Limited government power

• A balanced budget

• Personal liberty

• Strict adherence to the Constitution

• Sound money

• A strong defense while avoiding all undeclared wars

• No nation-building and no policing the world

If none of this looks familiar, we’ve been way too errant, way too long.
