It has been far too long since America has seen a true Jeffersonian declare his candidacy for president in one of the “major” political parties. The breed is so rare that most Americans have never seen even one elected official who believes in Jeffersonian principles.
Sadly, too many people really have no idea what Jeffersonian principles are. These principles were used as the most basic guidelines of operating any kind of government – local, state or national—at our nation’s founding. Government should be small, limited and firmly bound by “the chains of the Constitution”, as Jefferson himself put it and in Washington's words "Free from foreign entanglements."
As more Americans “wake up” to the realization that our government is growing and operating way out of control, many know that in order for this nation to survive we must return to those Jeffersonian principles. So, when a candidate for president adheres to those same principles, it only makes sense that we who also support those ideals would support that candidate in his bid for the White House.
The one candidate who supports Jeffersonian principles is Dr. Ron Paul, US Representative from Texas. Dr. Paul is well known for voting against bad legislation and well-meaning legislation alike whenever the legislation is unconstitutional. Dr. Paul opposes any further increase in the federal government, and seeks to scale it back—even if that means shutting down long-standing big government agencies and operations.
Therefore, the Jefferson Republican Party hereby fully endorses and supports the Honorable Ron Paul in his bid to become the next president of the United States of America.
