An assessment of Ron Paul

A reader recently requested that an assessment be given of GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul, R-Texas, in light of the fact that after the first major debate Paul garnered a score of 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. The scale which was used is part of a rating system this writer developed and used during the 2008 Presidential campaign.
That rating system focuses on the following key issues:  the economy, jobs, scope and size of government, the national debt, taxes, immigration, abortion, foreign policy, national defense, gun rights, and the war on terror.
Ron Paul gets very high marks--the highest, in fact--on issues such as personal liberty, the Constitution, and our founding principles, all of which are part of what is designated on the scale as 'the economy,' 'the size and scope of government,' 'taxes,' 'the national debt,' and 'gun rights.'
