In truth, my political beliefs HAVE changed quite a bit over the past few months. I used to be a total Bushite - a very unquestioning "patriot" who would take up for anything her government did. In fact, reading over some of my posts, I can remember sitting down to write thinking How do I take up for Bush here?
Today, I'm very different. I've lost my trust and respect for leaders and their broken promises. I've also lost my desire not to criticize power. Some of you may think I'm going through a "Liberal stage" or have just lost my core values.
But in truth, my political idealogy remains the same; I've just changed the way I trust my leaders to carry it out. I've been sorely disappointed in the Bush Administration and their unfulfilled promises on just about everything. I've further researched a few issues I used to shrug off. And I've realized that no matter what happens, the Constitution should never be out of date.
I hope I can still continue posting and have an active blog and catch up with you, my dear blog friends who I've disappeared from talking to in forever ;] I hope you who used to agree with me can look past the changes in my political idealogy (or perhaps, drivel.) and rationally discuss these things.
To question is patriotic; to rebel, American; to think freely the mark of true liberty.

I am back again with a question for you guys. Or rather, a topic to further discuss. There was one comment (thank you JB! ^^) on my last post when I first brought it up, but I want to know what you think of.
Thoughts? Opinions? Good or bad?
Winston Churchill once said that enemies are a sign of doing something right and standing up for something, and if that applies anywhere, I certainly think it does to Dr. Paul. When I first heard of him, I didn't really take note. He seemed, to me, like one of those RINOs. On further research (and I can't leave out the fact that I live on youtube as a factor in swaying my growing opinion) he began to be the one who made everyone else look like Republicans In Name Only.
I don't agree with him on everything, and frankly, I think it would be foolish to do such for any candidate. But what I DO agree with him on far outweighs what I disagree with him on. I admire his willingness to stand up for what he believes in and speak like a normal person and not a politician. He has been very consistent with his views, and that's saying more than you can about any other Republican or Democrat running.
His policies are often deemed "anti-American," but that's nothing more than hype and propoganda. Have we really gotten to the age in this country where one can't even question what America does without being labeled a traitor? Yes, I love my country! But I also accept that it can do wrong. If we don't accept that, we have nowhere to go but downhill.
I don't have time or energy to go into every political position of Ron Paul's and defend it. If you're reading this, go to Youtube and search Ron Paul. And I'll be happy to debate in comments as well.
I for one am sick and tired of seeing the one genuine candidate being trashed without a fair shot. Wake up America! Ron Paul 2008!

"Because I am in the public eye I feel the need to be a voice of worthy and
important causes whose efforts impact the lives of every person on Earth.
These animals are being brutally and unnecessarily slaughtered – and who
are we to say to they have less of a right to exist than we do.”
A statement released by Heroes star Hayden Panettiere concerning this yes, sad situation in Japan. Sad... because of course we feel bad for the dolphins, but being the stupid humans we are, really seem to only care because they're larger, and cuter than other fish that are communities' livelihoods.
Sad... but, you know, call me heartless, I think this is sadder. And this.
Update: Yes, retards. I know Dolphins are mammals.
You're really saying they're the same as innocent women who were raped in Darfur? That is just wrong in so many ways.
