Ron Paul at the Faith and Freedom Conference



I agree with everything that Ron Paul said in this speech, except possibly the part about government not being able to do anything unless you can do it. (What about the exacting justice on criminals?)

But more importantly, I am still waiting for him to renounce his cosponsorship of the Community AIDS and Hepatitis Prevention Act.  This bill (which did not pass) would have allowing federal tax dollars to be spent on syringes for drug addicts.  He cosponsored this bill in the 110th and 111th Congress (2007 and 2009).  If he will renounce it, then I will support his candidacy (albeit somewhat reluctantly).  It is unacceptable for me to support a candidate who supports a bill which encourages sinful behavior.  (The bill has not been introduced into the 112th Congress yet and probably won't be, though its sponsor is still a member of the House of Representatives.)
