I support Rand Paul because.....?

The first draw to Dr. Paul came when I learned of his stance on the criminalization of drugs. I am a substance abuse counselor. Drug addiction, alcoholism and other addictive disorders are a bio-socio-psychological primary disease (American Society of Addiction Medicine). I am alarmed at the 700% increase in prison population since 1970 (ACLU). We, as Americans, are losing our civil liberties at a frightening pace. It can and will happen to someone that you and I know. Someone that could have benefited from treatment, but rather was confined and not provided with care. I was initially concerned with Dr. Paul's pro-life position. I fear for women who may feel that they have no other choice but to have an abortion who may have an unsafe procedure. However, after re-evaluation of my own heart. I see that abortion is an issue of social construct and sexual disparity, that needs to be addressed from a perspective of empowerment. I hope to be a part of the process which empowers women.

Introduction

I am currently living in Omaha. I am a new Ron Paul supporter. I have been apathetic towards politics, feeling that there was no hope for true change. All of that changed when I took the time to research Dr. Ron Paul, champion of the constitution.

What Michele M. is saying about this Meetup Group

We had a great time at the after party! I am planning on attending next Tuesday in Omaha.
