Laws passed to combat terrorism will be used against Americans

Ron Paul recently said this at the Values Voter debate. His point is that government is not our friend, it is not our benevolent savior, it should not be our "big brother."

Limited government is a central tenant of Catholic Social Teaching as the government has a duty to respect the dignity of persons and families and a host of intermediary organizations including the Church.

This news story covered by Drudge today speaks to the reality of a government with a bloated budget and nothing better to do than waste American tax payer's money. It also speaks to the reality that when we give up our liberties for security we do end up losing both.

Ron Paul is the only candidate raising these urgent issues in the campaign.

Go Ron Paul!
