Why You Should Not Vote For Ron Paul Part 2

I get it, all of it, and I can tell you this. It doesn’t matter how united our brotherhood of grass roots volunteers is, Ron Paul will fuck over all those people. He doesn’t believe in personal rights at all, only in that we can do anything we want as long as we have the power to back it up. I think all those things you’re talking about are great, but Ron Paul is not the guy who will help any of it. The first thing he will do is work to repeal Roe vs Wade and make abortion illegal. Listen to his own words at the straw poll. (thank you thank you thank you):

Freedom, prosperity and peace.

Freedom: no right for a woman to choose.

Prosperity: National business will be strong, people will weak. Military spending. Guns would have stopped 9/11??!!! What??!! Self reliance (pull yourself up by your bootstraps), keep the fruits of your labor? That means less regulation and tax liability for businesses and CEOs.

Peace: I’m for it.

Strict interpretation of the constitution always sounds good, but that is ridiculous. People that blithely throw out that argument have no idea what they’re getting themselves into. We’ve been writing, interpreting and enforcing laws that define the Constitution for 200 years. Today we face challenges that there was absolutely no way the founders of our country could have forseen. That’s why they wrote it specifically to be read in conjunction with the times. Jefferson called for it to rewritten every 10 years!

When R Paul says a return to the old ways, he means getting rid of public programs, loans, business controls, labor laws, etc. If we really go back to the Constitution, we are fucked. The founders NEVER intended this but assholes like Ron Paul use it as a nationalistic calling for the citizens. So OK, lets go back to the original interpretation. I’m a white American lower-upper class male. I’ll be fine.

If you really want to know what it means to go back to what the Constitution originally said, I think you need to do some research and see what that means and how those words have been used. Look specifically at how Scalia has interpreted law using the exact same argument to say there can be segregation, minorities can be treated differently, no health care rights, no right to public school, no workers rights.

FACT: The Constitution was written by rich white landowners to be used as a facilitator of international trade. It was used to create one power for other countries to conduct trade deals with. Today people think it only consists of the Bill of Rights. It was written to give us financial power and the ability to kick the British out of our country (something the individual states couldn’t do after The Revolutionary War). It was a document showing where power lies, but never said much at all about human rights or governments responsibilities apart from having a strong military.

I AM angry about this guy because he’s dangerous. He appeals to people because he sounds like he’s saying ra ra America, but he’s only going to help the rich.

As far as grass roots and all that: I am grass roots. I am talking about this and am by definition part of a grass roots movement by doing so. I write my Senators and Congressmen on a regular basis. I am involved.

As far as power to the people and brotherhood: Hell yeah!!!! But this isn’t what he’s saying. He calls it that because he got a good response. He is tricking people into voting against their interests and the crowd is following him like he’s going to help them somehow. HE WON’T! He’s telling us all what he’s going to do.

He’s going to spend more on military, repeal Roe v Wade, decrease business regulation, allow anyone with money to buy into better alternatives, etc etc.

    The PResident can’t overturn RvW. And it should be a State’s rights issue anyway.

    He’s the only talking about abolishing the executive orders, bringing the troops home, and ending the corporatism that is making the rich richer. Listen to Gravel – follow the money!

    This is your second post without so much as a link to anything that might support your views.

    The deceit and misdirection you would have us believe the good doctor is putting over on us is not there.

    In fact, the exact double speak and misdirection you blame on Dr. No is in fact demonstrable from every other major candidate.

    It’s odd that Dr Paul is the candidate you should choose to make claims about, and yet he’s the only candidate you can’t lay a finger on with facts.

    I wish you’d blog a bit more responsibly. You are only serving to give one more example of an uneducated and yet highly opinionated know-nothing blogger.

    I see, since he isn’t an on-fire, income-redistributing socialist, you don’t like him.

    Sorry to break this to you, but the Constitution is not a “living document”, some moldy archaic set of quaint guidelines, or irrelevant. It’s the law of the land. As written. Period.
    If you don’t like it, then get 2/3 of Congress and 3/4 of state legislatures to agree to an amendment.

    right, thus the 10th amendment.

    if you think the feds should be doing anything they want without regard to legality, okay, but look where that has brought us. RP simply wants to return to the rule of law. for us that’s the ‘Constitution’. ya Know, the thing that ‘constitutes’ the government.

    How can you not love this guy listen to him he is truly a man who
    tells the truth “We The People” are taking our country back and
    restoring the original Constitutional Republic and returning Amerika
    back to America not the “United States of Surveillance”

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot
    survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable,
    for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor
    moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling
    through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself.
    For the traitor appears not a traitor—he speaks in the accents
    familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and
    he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He
    rots the soul of a nation—he works secretly and unknown in the night
    to undermine the pillars of a city—he infects the body politic so
    that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.

    — Cicero: orator, statesman, political theorist, lawyer and
    philosopher of Ancient Rome.

    “In the time of universal deceit, telling the truth
    is a revolutionary act” GEORGE ORWELL

    “None are more enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
    — Goethe
