Who Is Ron Paul and Why Should I Care?

11 Oct

This is not usually a political blog. Although I occasionally get into history and such, I tend to stay away from actually endorsing a candidate here. But I just can’t stop telling people about Ron Paul. If you homeschool, you really need to look into him. He’s not just anti-war and anti-taxes. He’s all about getting the government out of your lives, and that includes how you teach and raise your kids.

My commitment to ensuring home schooling remains a practical alternative for American families is unmatched by any Presidential candidate.

Returning control of education to parents is the centerpiece of my education agenda. As President I will advance tax credits through the Family Education Freedom Act, which reduces taxes to make it easier for parents to home school by allowing them to devote more of their own funds to their children’s education.

I am committed to guaranteeing parity for home school diplomas and advancing equal scholarship consideration for students entering college from a home school environment.

We must have permanency in the Department of Defense Home School Tier 1 Pilot Program, providing recruitment status parity for home school graduates. I will use my authority to prevent the Department of Education from regulating home school activities.

I will veto any legislation that creates national standards or national testing for home school parents or students. I also believe that, as long as No Child Left Behind remains law, it must include the protections for home schoolers included in sec. 9506 (enshrining home schoolers’ rights) and 9527 (guaranteeing no national curriculum).

Federal monies must never be used to undermine the rights of homeschooling parents. I will use the bully pulpit of the Presidency to encourage a culture of educational freedom throughout the nation.

Ron Paul 2008 – Issues

Homeschoolers across the nation as well as parents looking for real alternatives to public school know how difficult it is to make sure your kids are well educated. Government has a lot invested in public schools and they are reluctant to give up that control. So if you want to have the control of how your children are educated you need to investigate Ron Paul. He is the only real choice for anyone that is fed up with public schooling.

The following is a video I found on YouTube that really gives you the basics on Ron Paul.

You can’t afford to be apathetic about politics. As Pericles said long ago, “Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.”
