Why You Shouldn’t Vote For Ron Paul

If you think Ron Paul believes in the constitution, you’re crazy. He talks a good game, but he’s big corporation all the way. If you don’t want to have a union or you feel your insurance payments are a little too easy to make, he’s your man. He’s only a constitutionalist and libertarian as far as it concerns letting those with money make the rules. He believes in Social Darwinism and not the idea set forth by the founders of this nation that the Constitution is a living document that will be interpreted in accordance with the times and for benefit of the people. He believes all societal ills will be cured by the corporations for only if they act ethically will people buy their products; a misproven and ancient way of thinking. Therefore If you want to continue down this corporatist path we’re on, if you want to continue to lose workers rights, continue to lose jobs to other countries, continue to destroy our water, air and land, continue to run on fossil fuels, continue to sponsor big corporations with our tax dollars, and continue to give your taxes for policies that make you sick, your children dumb and fat, and make all of us poor, vote for him. He is a libertarian ONLY when it comes to financial issues. He believes Ayn Rands idea that only the fit survive. That means in this day and age, that whoever has the money rules those others. In other words, all those great corporations that have been getting amazing breaks over the last 7 years will only get more help fucking everyone else. As far as people, he couldn’t give a crap about them. We will all get the same opportunities he says. Well that’s easy to believe if you think everyone starts on equal ground.
In theory the idea that everyone has an equal chance is great. In reality it ignores inequity in society. The poor will get poorer, the middle class will continue to shrink, small business will basically be removed from the equation, and the rich will continue to get richer. The people with money will send their kids to private school while the public schools continue to fade. They will buy better health plans and live longer. They will continue to consolidate power.

    Amazing! You got everything wrong. I didn’t expect you to get it all wrong but you proved otherwise.

    I would love to see just one link in which you prove the stupidity you wrote.

    It’s called research and you just might want to do a little of it.

    Ron Paul has been working harder than anyone to protect the middle class from the rich elite in Washington and on Wall street.

    You think government can protect the poor? No, government is a tool to control the poor. It is a lot easier for big corporations to control 500 Congressmen get them to hand the people’s money over, than it is to control 300,000,000 consumers in a free market and get them to buy their products. A corporation can simply spend a few million on the 500 members of Congress, in order to gain control over all 300,000,000 citizens. Congress can can tax all 300,000,000 citizens, and suck the entire nation’s money into a corporation’s hands (e.g. Halliburton, whose former CEO now makes policy in government that effectively taxes all US citizens to enrich Halliburton’s shareholders).

    Government takes freedom away from people, and concentrates it. Lack of government means each individual is free from coercion.

    Ron Paul is the greatest Statesman in US history. He wrote a book called “A Foreign Policy of Freedom”.

    Here is the summary:

    There is one and only one voice in Congress for a foreign policy of freedom, and it belongs to Ron Paul, who has stood alone for freedom for many years. Ron is the seemingly impossible: a voice for reason and truth in a den of thieves.

    A Foreign Policy of Freedom is his 372-page manifesto, a collection of inspired statements to the House of Representatives that show him to be the most consistent and morally responsible politician, perhaps, in the whole of American history.

    This book takes on a special significance with his 2008 run for the US presidency. Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., writes the introduction.

    Recently, you might have heard Ron condemning foreign aid, the Iraq War, our vast and needlessly growing military budgets, bombings of this country and that, troops in most all countries in the world, and all the other meddlesome activities of the US empire. This foreign policy, Congressman Paul has pointed out, is contrary to American ideals, diminishes American liberty, and ends up making worse the very problems it seeks to alleviate.

    But did you know that Ron has been delivering this message through thick and thin from his first day in Congress in 1976 until the present day? That’s 31 years of prophetic warnings, 31 years of courageous stands against the tide, 31 years of being proven right by subsequent events. There are no flip-flops, backpeddles, regrets, or coverups. He has told the truth again and again, no matter what it cost him.

    In the middle of the Cold War, he decried the endless streams of subsidies from the US to communist governments. At the same time, he stood firm against aid to insurgents seeking to overthrow those regimes. He sensibly pointed out that the Soviet Union would collapse if it had to face financial reality, and an end to US aid would make that possible. He has been a stickler on the power of the presidency, refusing to grant the president authority to start wars without Congressional approval.

    Herein you will find a chronicle of hypocrisy. Paul condemned the policy that subsidized Saddam Hussein, and the policy that waged war on Iraq and killed Saddam. The same is true of Noriega in Panama and the “freedom fighters” in Afghanistan who later made up the shock troops of Al-Qaeda.

    “Our experiment with foreign policy interventionism has failed, just as our experience with domestic economic interventionism has failed,” he said in 1982.

    He said the same in mid-1990s.

    “War, and the threat of war, are big government’s best friend,” he wrote only recently. “Liberals support big government social programs, and conservatives support big government war policies, thus satisfying two major special interest groups. And when push comes to shove, the two groups cooperate and support big government across the board — always at the expense of personal liberty. Both sides pay lip service to freedom, but neither stands against the welfare-warfare state and its promises of unlimited entitlements and endless war.”

    In many ways, this book is a history of a quarter century of folly, told by a man who saw what others did not, and had the temerity to state his view publicly. No voice for peace has been as consistent in the demand that government stop its intervention across the board. No supporter of free markets has been so determined to apply the logic of liberty to all aspects of foreign policy.

    This book makes Ron Paul’s place in history. There has never been anything so forthright, truth telling, and ultimately devastating from a US politician. Not since Taft has there been a book like this, and this one makes Taft’s own classic seems vague and abstract by comparison.

    You think the current system we have was created by a free market? Think again. We are living in a government regulated, mandated, over-taxed, corporatized, state of coercion. Your liberties are being taken with every vote by Congress. You complain about insurance premiums, the poor, terrorist threats, and yet ALL OF THAT was created by the state salaried beautrocrats and the Federal Reserve. My friend, you have much more to learna bout the laws economics, history, and liberty. Continue studying.

    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.

    philosopher of Ancient Rome.
