Ron Paul’s detailed agenda for America will be disclosed next week and a senior official with his campaign tells The Brody File that it includes eliminating five governmental departments, cutting $1 trillion in spending, and Dr. Paul would take a presidential salary of just $39, 336, which is the median salary of the American worker (The President’s base salary is normally $400,000).
The five departments that would be abolished are the Departments of Education, Energy, Housing and Urban Development, Commerce and Interior. However, while the departments would be eliminated, the plan would be to roll certain functions into other departments. For example, the Department of Education would be done away with but Pell grant programs would be phased in somewhere else.
There’s a lot more details to come but those will be unveiled Monday in Las Vegas.
The mainstream media wants to continue to discount Ron Paul even though his poll numbers are healthy, his fundraising is strong, and his message is resonating. Now, in this 2012 campaign, he has developed a new wrinkle as he tries to make a concerted pitch to pro-life social conservatives by talking up the value of human life.
Ron Paul is not called Dr. Paul for nothing. He’s an obstetrician.
Coming off his big straw poll victory at the Values Voter Summit, he’s now out with an extremely compelling pro-life ad.
While Ron Paul may not win the nomination, his constitutional conservative beliefs have already won him something far more valuable and long lasting: changing the discourse in American politics.
My guess is the godfather of the Tea Party would rather have that be his legacy than becoming president of the United States. The media scoffed at him in 2008 but who’s having the last laugh?
The Brody File will be interviewing Ron Paul next week in Las Vegas.
