I’m going to be flying out of California into Des Moines, Iowa on New Years day to help Ron Paul’s campaign leading up to the nation’s first caucus on January 3rd. I’m among several other rp2012.org grassroots activists who are traveling into Iowa to help fill in any holes in counties that need precinct captains. Although I can’t technically vote in the Iowa caucus, I can deliver a stump speech on Ron Paul’s behalf. Here’s the speech I have written up. It’s supposed to be 2 minutes long. Let me know what you think, as it’s a work in progress. Keep in mind, this is geared towards Iowan Republicans who are quite conservative.
Good evening ladies and gentlemen. I’m here tonight to encourage you to vote for one of our last honest statesmen and the Champion of the Constitution, Dr. Ron Paul. Dr. Paul is unlike any other candidate today because he is consistent, principled, and incorruptible. He is truly a man of the people, fighting to restore our freedoms and prosperity. Tonight, you have a once in a lifetime opportunity. Our country is on the brink of economic collapse. The dollar is on life support. Your freedoms are being eroded by overly intrusive government. Fortunately, you have the choice to turn this all around. You can choose between career politicians representing the status quo, or you can choose to vote for Ron Paul who represents liberty and real change. The other candidates will tinker with the details of the tax code and offer modest spending cuts. Ron Paul’s Plan to Restore America will cut $1 trillion in spending his first year in office and balance our budget in three years.
Voting for Ron Paul means not only voting for a person, but a philosophy. This is a philosophy based on the concept: that which governs least, governs best. If you believe in personal responsibility, running your life as you see fit, spending your money how you want to spend it, and not telling others how to live, Ron Paul is your candidate.
Ron Paul is a strict adherent to the Constitution, and will never vote for a law that violates it. Instead of having Government legislate morality, Ron Paul is a firm believer in strong family values. He has been married for 54 years, and has five children and eighteen grandchildren. As a former OBGYN, Dr. Paul helped deliver over 4,000 babies and is staunchly pro-life. As a veteran, Ron Paul believes in a strong national defense and has received more donations from active military than all other candidates combined, including Obama. He will fight to strengthen our borders at home and won’t waste a penny on nation building or on foreign welfare. Ron Paul will restore our civil liberties, and prevent any government intrusions on the Bill of Rights such as warrantless searches or restricting your right to bear arms.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are living in truly unique times. But we are at a crossroads. We can choose to go down the path that leads to our ruination. Or we can choose to elect a serious candidate, Ron Paul, who can restore America now.
