Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

My hope here is that these pages will bring understanding to the real views of Ron Paul that have been so distorted by the media, and that you will share these pages with your friends. I pray that supporters of these small goverment ideas will demand that their representatives bring Mr. Pauls up for an up or down vote in the House of Representatives.
