Ron Paul: Or, saying what you want to hear ...

... but then doing what you don't want them to do.

It's funny how many people want presidential candidates to lie about their intentions. If a politician has a history of voting in a certain manner on important issues, why even bother to ask them their opinion on those very same issues. It's strange to ask them to state a new opinion counter to their voting history. It's even stranger to accept the newly stated opinion.

It is as if most of the electorate want to be mislead, and they are even willing to provide the prompting.

Voter: "Candidate X, you have a history of voting for issue A. Would you still support A if elected president?"

Candidate: "That's a great question. I pledge to you that I will no longer support A if elected. You have my word on that."

Voter: "OK, that's good enough for me. You have my vote."

Should you even be shocked when they forget their promise and return to their historic voting habits?

Ron Paul is the only candidate who votes and speaks his true views. With Paul, you do not have to delude yourself into believing that the candidate has now adopted your views. You will never hear Paul spin; he's actually boring since you know his stance even before he begins to answer the question.

A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for truth!
