No one in the Republican presidential race can accuse Texas Rep. Ron Paul of being a flip-flopper. Even as he’s risen to the top of the polls in Iowa, he’s sticking to the same views that he’s held for 30 years, Politico reports.

“I don’t think the problems are all that complicated,” Paul told an audience of more than 100 in Maquoketa, Iowa, Thursday, which was double the crowd Texas Gov. Rick Perry received a couple days earlier. “I think we’ve gotten into the mess mainly because we’ve had too many people in Washington that really didn’t read or didn’t care about our Constitution. If we obey the Constitution, I think we could solve most of our problems.”

Paul is sticking to basically the same platform he ran on four years ago, which includes libertarianism, reining in the Federal Reserve and avoiding foreign entanglements.
