We are not delusional. We know that Ron Paul will not be able to change everything he would like to.

We also know that we elected a Democratic Congress to end the war and instead of ending it, they have used its funding to get their own pet projects funded.

We know that a Senator from California helped in the writing of the so called Patriot Act. We know that the same Senator allocated millions in defense contracts to her husband's companies. We know that the Majority Leader has managed to get her own husband a multi-million dollar contract.

We know that we have elected Republican Presidents to limit government and government spending only to see the government grow larger and the spending increase.

We know that the government has spent our social security money and is now trying to tell us that this is the reason for the spiraling debt. We know that we have been taxed for public health care and are now being told this is another reason for the spiraling debt.

We know that we claim to be allies of Israel but more of our tax money is given to the Arab countries with the restriction that it be given back to the our military industrial complex. We know that none of these countries need the money.

We know that the Constitution prohibited tax on labor, fiat money, and control and printing of the country's currency by anyone other than the federal government. Yet, we know that all of these things have come to be.

We know that the framers and past Presidents have warned us about a centralized bank, the industrial military complex, and entangling alliances. Yet, we also know that all of these things have come to be.

We know that the government has intentionally not enforced immigration laws in order to provide cheap labor and have us subsidize it through our tax paid for social infrastructure. We know that this cheap labor is not so cheap.

We know that Ron Paul has voted against all of these things while being scoffed at by his fellow legislators. We know that none of the other candidates have.

We know that we are no longer represented and that the public servants we elect have changed into a class of rulers that ignore the wishes of the people.

We don't expect Ron to be able to change all of these things overnight but we know he will try. Most of all, we know he will represent us as our President and none of the other candidates will.
