Farewell and thanks to Ron Paul

Well done, good and faithful servant.

Those are the words every Christian longs to hear from our Lord when our work on Earth is complete.

Seldom does the phrase apply to America’s public servants – the men and women we elect to represent us in Washington or in our state capitals.

But they more than apply to one retiring member of the House of Representatives – Dr. Ron Paul.

Understand that it is not that I have always agreed with Dr. Paul’s positions or even with all of his votes. But in his three decades in Washington, he has been the conscience of the constitutionalists.

He gave his farewell address recently – and, as usual, he didn’t let any liberty lovers down.

Here are a few of my favorite excerpts:

There’s a lot of wisdom here.

And I encourage everyone to read or watch the entire speech.

It’s one for the history books.

Ron Paul is a unique politician in American history. He’s the kind of citizen-legislator our founders had in mind when they crafted the great documents meant to guide the nation’s future.

He will be missed.
