Well, up to this point I have supported and followed Ron Paul for president for a number of reasons. The biggest reason is that I agree fully with his "libertarian" stance that we need to return to the constitution and get the government out of people's business. He doesn't support the government interventions to stop abortion and gay marriage because he doesn't believe our constitution gives the federal government the right to intervene in such things. Although I actually disagree in the case of abortion because I think our government has the right and responsibility to protect it's citizens - even those not yet born! And he wants to get our troops out of Iraq - because the war was "illegal" according to our own constitution. He is tired of the amount of power and control that the government has in its citizen's lives, and wants to put a stop to it. This is why I have supported him for president.
But at this time, I am very interested in Mike Huckabee. Although he isn't as concerned about minimizing the government, he is interested in using the government for good instead of evil. His stances are in line with my morals and ethics, and I believe our country would be a much better place if he were president. I would love to see Roe vs. Wade overturned and the constant murder of the innocent unborn ended. And I would love to see marriage defined as a unity between "one man and one woman." Our country's corruptness and blatant sin is going to be it's end - if our manipulation of Israel doesn't end it first! (But that's a topic for another day...)
Oh - and I definitely DON'T like the other options: John McCain or Mitt Romney. Way too liberal and "big government" for me...
But all that said, I honestly don't think that any of the republican candidates have a chance against Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. Our party has unfortunately been weakened greatly by President Bush and his inability to follow through on his word, along with the mess he created for us in the middle east. And in the event of a democratic president, so far I think I would rather see Barack Obama in office than another Clinton. Not to mention that I don't believe that women belong in such a position of leadership. Feminism is already causing decay in our society and the breakdown of the family. And I think that Obama has some good ideas, although it will still be detrimental to have a liberal in office, at least for those of us with strong moral and ethical convictions.
May God show mercy on us and may the Messiah return soon in glory!
