iVoteAmerica is impressed with much of the content of Paul’s speech and the depth of his understanding of the issues of liberty and limited government. In fact, we are so impressed with Paul’s ability to draw the connections between the actions of governement and the erosion of individual freedom we thought it important to memorialize his speech in a customized downloadable document.

Gov. Christie was preceded by two of the worst Governors in current times, Jim McGreevey who discovered he was gay after he put his boyfriend on the payroll and the whispers in the statehouse became a raging storm.
