Job description

There is a job available in 2008. Wanted: One president of the USA.
Here is the key requirement:

Section 1 - The President

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

With that in mind, choose wisely which presidential candidate you support. Do any of them even know what the frickin US constitution is, let alone how to preserve it ?

Yep. Only Ron Paul.

The role of the president is not as "leader of the free world". Or to save the "public health system". Or to improve schools so "no child is left behind". Its not to spread democracy to the darkest corners of the earth. Nor is it to build prosperity and infrastructure, or to finance grand adventures like NASA's exploration.

Nope.. its just to preserve liberty, as described by the founding fathers. Let people be free, and stay out of their lives as much as possible, and only intervene to protect their liberty and property.

Once you guarantee freedom, society actually makes more progress in achieving all of the other ideals - good health, education, technology and infrastructure - than by using the blind fist of government to pursue it.
