Government should obey the Constitution

A couple of reasons why my wife and I will be voting for Ron Paul: We'd like to see our troops come home. Why are we building so many bases in Iraq? An embassy as large as the Vatican? Do you believe there is any real intention of ending this occupation?

We believe the government should actually obey the Constitution, that detaining people indefinitely without trial and employing torture is un-American and does nothing to make us safer. We believe the United States can make the world a better place by sticking to the ideals of freedom and personal liberty, but can only do harm trying to change the world through violent force and cracking down on it's own citizens god given liberties. We believe the United States is on a dangerous course and that the people must remember the government must work for us and not the other way around!

The only presidential candidate to address these issues? Ron Paul.
