Christian, why Ron Paul?

"Christian, why Ron Paul?" Continued...

Though Ron Paul is confessedly a believer in Christ, he views his faith as entirely private and unrelated to public policy (see video clip below). It is instead his libertarianism that drives his politics, and so he would withhold most of the substance of the good that God intends for us in government. But Christians are accountable to God to help elevate to office the person who will govern in the godliest manner for purposes that most fully conform to the functions that God has assigned to government.
