I just added an article to my vaccine webpage that details how I came to to have the views I do on vaccines.  Check out My Vaccine Journey.
My top choice for the republican presidential primary is Ron Paul.  I am fairly familiar with his views on many issues based on interviews and other short pieces he has written.  I had yet to read any of his books but decided to pick up his latest book at the library.

In his book titled Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom, Ron Paul chooses issues that are affecting our country today.  Each chapter is a separate issue.  While it is best to read the whole book through, you could easily pick and choose the different chapters that most interest you.  You may not agree with him on all his issues, but he does a great job of explaining himself and giving you food for thought.

The great thing about Ron Paul is that all his views are in keeping with upholding the US Constitution and protecting the rights of the people and preserving the powers that are reserved for the states.  While many of the other presidential candidates this time around are also great in many of these same things, each have and issue or two where they are not so concerned with upholding the Constitution or protecting freedoms and instead would like to impose their personal views on the whole country.  While I would still support most of these candidates if they were to win the primary, the ideal candidate is Ron Paul.

Like I mentioned before, I already knew most of Ron Paul's views, but this book really went much deeper than I had expected.  He talked about abuse of power by the federal government and its many agencies, giving specifics that I was not aware of.  Overall, he really drives home the point that the federal government has really overstepped its authority in so many areas and we are less safe and less free because of it.

Anyone who wants to get a alternative perspective than you will get from the average liberal or conservative should pick up Ron Paul's newest book Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom.  I put it on hold at the library, so there was no need to dish out money for it, though it is not that expensive according to Amazon.com.  I found this book to be a very easy read and I had it read in less than 2 days.
In his article titled The Great Cancer Hoax Part II: The Brilliant Cure the FDA Tried Their Best to Shut Down... Dr. Mercola is talking about how natural treatments for cancer are not given any credit by those who decide on what are the best cancer treatments.  There is no money to be made by the cancer industry for solutions that they can't patent, so they ignore these with the help of our FDA.  Take a look at what he has to say about all this. 

He posted the following video with his article.  You can either view it directly from there or I have attached it here for convenience.  I haven't had time to view it yet, but it tells the story of a family who decides to go against the mainstream treatment for their son and how they are forced to do it anyway.  I think the video may only be available for free for a short time, so if you plan on viewing it, you may want to do it sooner than later.
Over and over I have seen how natural treatments (many different kinds) have worked for different people to rid there bodies of cancer.  If those looking to solve the cancer problem in this country would take the time to examine these cases, they may learn some valuable information which could not only help people heal from cancer, but to actually stop them from getting it in the first place.  I can't see that happening anytime soon.  It will be up to the people, as it usually is, to change this around.  Sharing this sort of information is just one of those steps in the right direction so that at least people can be aware that there are other treatments to try besides chemo, drugs, and radiation.
