I read a lot of stuff from the US, it would be daft not to. What affects you, affects us. You have a guy over there defying every mainstream media political pundit and turning US politics upside down, Ron Paul. Despite every underhand technique they can throw at him, Dr Paul calmly and effectively continues to make what seems like impossible progress by doing one thing the others are not able to do. Telling the truth, backed up with his impeccable track record.
Not many people over here have heard of Ron Paul. Not surprising really, he almost never features in the UK news, so why should we. That is a great shame, because the world, not just the US, needs hero’s.
But we have got one man in UK politics who stands head and shoulders above the rest, Nigel Farage. Farage is the leader of UKIP, the UK Independent Party. They are now recognised as the third biggest party in the UK, making steady inroads all across the land.
While not maybe cut from the same cloth as Dr Paul, Farage believes in something, and isn’t afraid to tell it how it is. I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with him, he is a surprisingly small, but charismatic person, with the heart of a Lion.
He is a Member of the European Parliament for South East England and co-chairs the Eurosceptic Europe of Freedom and Democracy group. Best known over here for the way he rips into the pompous leaders of Europe, I highly recommend you spend some time on YouTube and watch some of his speeches.
As a sample of him in action, I’ve embedded some below.

Fighting with Tony Blair. Watch how angry Blair gets when someone dares to stand up to him.
