Presidential candidate Ron Paul is the only candidate that wants to get the government out of your medical treatments.
I do not think I need to elaborate on how this would greatly help treatments for Lyme Disease.
As a retired doctor, he knows the issues surrounding our health care. Here are some of his opinions on health choices that should be available to all of us:
"Americans are justifiably concerned over the government's escalating intervention into their freedom to choose what they eat and how they take care of their health.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in order to comply with standards dictated by supra-national organizations such as the UN`s World Food Code (CODEX), NAFTA, and CAFTA, has been assuming greater control over nutrients, vitamins and natural health care providers to restrict your right to choose the manner in which you manage your health and nutritional needs.
I have been the national leader in preserving Health Freedom.
I have introduced the Health Freedom Protection Act, HR 2117, to ensure Americans can receive truthful health information about supplements and natural remedies.
I support the Access to Medical Treatment Act, H.R. 2717, which expands the ability of Americans to use alternative medicine and new treatments.
I oppose legislation that increases the FDA`s legal powers. FDA has consistently failed to protect the public from dangerous drugs, genetically modified foods, dangerous pesticides and other chemicals in the food supply. Meanwhile they waste public funds attacking safe, healthy foods and dietary supplements
I also opposed the Homeland Security Bill, H.R. 5005, which, in section 304, authorizes the forced vaccination of American citizens against small pox. The government should never have the power to require immunizations or vaccinations."
I order for this to happen, we need everybody that agrees with his position to actually vote for him.
He is getting a surprising ground swell of support for a candidate who has so little media attention. I really believe we can pull this off if everyone does what they can to get him in office.
