Recently, I mailed certain member of congress and other politicians copies of my book Good Morning Uncle Sam. It is still too soon to gauge the response but I was very impressed by the fact that one of the busiest members was the first to acknowledge receipt- Congressman Ron Paul.
His was mailed to his Texas office about two weeks ago and today we received a letter which had been mailed from Washington DC. This may mean that a staffer read the book and thought it worthy of the congressman's attention and forwarded it to him.
Congressman Paul thanked me for the book and said that he "looks forward to reading it" and that we can all rest assured that he will continue the fight to restore limited government under the Constitution of the United States.
The letter itself as well as certain portions within it really say a lot about his character. First, that he would even take the time to acknowledge an unknown author implies that he is truly connected to average citizens and cares about us individually. As nice as his response was, it's the way that he vowed to continue the fight to restore limited government under the Constitution of the United States that I found most impressive. I think most people would have simply said the constitution or perhaps- the Constitution. But for Congressman Paul, nothing less than the Constitution of the United States would suffice.
