Ron Paul, the iconoclastic nine-term congressman from Southeast Texas, took the first step Thursday toward launching a second presidential bid in 2008, this time as a Republican.
Paul filed incorporation papers on Thursday to create a presidential exploratory committee that allows him and his supporters to collect money on behalf of his bid. This would be Paul’s second try for the White House; he was the Libertarian nominee for president in 1988.
He’s a strong libertarian economically and he’s prolife! Although he favors returning abortion regulationto the states, getting the Supreme Court out of it, I find that acceptable as that’s probably the Constitutionally correct decision, although the part of me that enjoys tilting at windmills still wants the pro-life amendment to the Constitution, while recognizing that in a best case scenario, it’s at best decades off.
I’m not signed up completely yet, but I’m pretty close.
