What Do You Know About Ron Paul?

My first post on Ron Paul was enthusiastically written in October of 2007 (with regular updates in the following years).

Four years later and I am still inspired by the man's integrity, transparency, and dedication.

Have you ever been compelled to use these words to describe a politician? Than you probably have never known a congressman to run his office so efficiently that he willing returns $100,000 out of his budget to the Treasury.

Give the guy a chance and do your own research. I think you'll find it to be a refreshing experience

Even if you don't agree with his policies, we need to demand politicians with this caliber of character. Enough pandering, we need politicians with genuine convictions.

Excuse My Absence

Elena and I have been in the process of moving in to our first house (another piece of exciting news on the heels of the house; Elena recieved a position to lead after school program at the middle school 1 mile from our house!)

There are projects galore to keep us busy around the house. Much of which needs to be done sooner than later, so we have been at full throttle since we got the keys. But now, we are just about ready to shift gears to a more reasonable pace.

That means more time and energy to do the things I love: read, run, think, write, and of course, blog (I've had a few exciting ideas bouncing around for awhile).

I'll be sure to post some before and after pictures of the house too. As soon as there are "afters" to photograph.
