Our ratings of Congressman Ron Paul's candidacy for the presidency remain
unchanged (Ron Paul's presidential candidacy ratings for 2008
and 2012 are as below).
Ron Paul is an
obstetrician-gynecologist who has served in the Congress three times for a total
of 22 years since 1976.
He also served in the US Air Force and Air National Guard.
In stark contrast to Mitt Romney, who
has flip-flopped passionately on almost
every major issue, Ron Paul is a man of conscience who has been a steady
advocate of small government, fiscal responsibility and international isolationism.
While Congressman Paul is not the
Christian President America needs
today, he is a rare politician who has held true to his
convictions. But the America he wants to lead is from a bygone era.
For example, Ron Paul wants there to be no laws concerning
healthcare and instead wants to entrust Christian churches
to care for the sick who are broke and uninsured. It would be great if the churches were
able to take on that task and give credit for their good works to Christ.
Sadly, the days when our churches could shoulder such a burden are long past. Weakened by
false preachers, building mortgages and other
unbiblical obligations, they are often unable to care for their own
congregants, let alone reach out to those in need in the wider community.
Ron Paul's utopian isolationist foreign policy also grossly underestimates the ambitions of
communist China, Russia and Islam. (See Christian God)
While awaiting his answers, our rating of the Ron Paul candidacy for
is a C.
