Ron Paul's Commentary From CNN.COM

Ron Paul writes an interesting article for CNNHighlights: Ron Paul: Asking about the future of the GOP is the wrong question

Paul says instead people should ask why the country went in the wrong direction

Republicans stopped being the party of limited government, Paul says

Paul says it will take time for GOP to return to its traditional values

money quotes:

The Republican Congress never once stood up against the Bush/Rove machine that demanded support for unconstitutional wars, attacks on civil liberties here at home, and an economic policy based on more spending, more debt, and more inflation -- while constantly preaching the flawed doctrine that deficits don't matter as long as taxes aren't raised.

But what the Republican leadership didn't realize was that ALL spending is a tax on middle-class Americans through price inflation and that eventually the inevitable consequence is paying for the extravagance with a financial crisis.

I guess this is the last entry I'll read on your blog. I really hoped that after the elections, your blog would return to something entertaining without being political in nature. When you said you were going to run for office, you said you wouldn't take part in partisanship, but it's all over your blog. I get it. You're a DEMOCRAT! Some people with opposing views can have an entire conversation without mention of politics. I thought you were one of them.

I'm a Republican and I say this is not being biased, it's the truth. We need to recognize our flaws instead of covering the up! We need to back up and remember what Republican's really stand for.
