Paul Stanton is honored to run as a candidate to represent Florida in the U.S. Senate. A world-traveled individual, Paul is a computer programmer, veteran and Libertarian activist. After six years of service and a tour of duty in Iraq, Paul received his honorable discharge from the U.S. Army and immediately adopted a philosophy of responsible service to community. As a pro-peace veteran, he led protests against violence and interventionism in Iraq and Afghanistan. At one point he sued an airport for the right to hand out copies of the Constitution in protest of the use of now-deprecated overly-invasive body scanners. As your Senator, he will continue to fight for the rights of everyday citizens, to preserve the freedoms that are quickly being eroded by corrupt partisan politics.
Paul is committed to an agenda based on the principles of peace, individual freedom and a common sense-approach to taxes. As a Libertarian, he fully supports the platform of the Libertarian Party
. As Senator, he will advance the principle of non-aggression, seeking to end the United States involvements in the Middle East and mitigating the harm we have already caused. Additionally, he advocates for an end to the “War on Drugs” and incarceration of users, and instead advocates for treatment and education for those who are addicted. He demands an overhaul of the federal tax system, where even those who are poor are still overburdened with taxes on the fruits of their labors through a “War on the Poor.” A resident of Deland, Florida, Paul lives surrounded by family, friends, and neighbors who are proud to call him one of their own.
