I see Congressman Paul more as a Constitutional Conservative. The Republicans dislike him simply because he embodies what the Republican Party should look and act like. Sometimes the mirror is painful to look at.
The Democrats dislike him simply because their voting records are a total embarrassment compared to his. They will find out as John Kerry did, it's virtually impossible to hide public record.
Ron Paul's campaign is a growing pain in the back side for both established parties. They will eventually have to deal with the issues he brings to the table and they don't like it. His biggest obstacle is MONEY. He, as of yet, can't buy the votes the others can.
As far as abortion is concerned, I like his stance. He said it is a states rights issue, let the states handle it, not the federal government.
Constitutionally I agree.
Morally, I find infanticide a repugnant form of birth control. Yet I don't find it surprising this nation is having the debate over abortion considering we live in a culture of death.
I agree with Dr. Paul's assessment that until we return to a culture of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness we will deal with this issue. Each abortion denies one more American citizen those rights.
