Fred Phelps talks about the Bible and Christianity all the time, doesn’t make him Jesus.
Would he pass the security checks?
There’s this thing called Congress that Paul would have to abolish, too.
Like a Paul nomination, it ain’t gonna happen.
What if a Ron Paul nomination does happen? Would you support him, or Hillary?
The only real Commander-in-Chief in the race is Duncan Hunter. Unfortunately, he's not viable.
I could Lol but then again it just might happen.
Ron "cut-n-run" Paul?
Loved by Al Qaeda maybe.
Paul flashes the Constitution much like Byrd does. Care to tell me where in it he finds the authority to do all the things you propose without congressional approval?
Meanwhile, Islamic militantism is emboldened. They step up attacks around the world. In the second year of the Paul Presidency, they sneak suitcase nukes into New York and Washington DC and detonate them. Hundreds of thousands of lives are lost with untold others critically injured. The hospitals have already been overrun with the Paul Presidency destitute seeking benefits, and have no way to deal with the injured. An already severely crippled country descends into complete chaos. A Ron Paul goal has been accomplished. There is effectively no federal government.
The Nation fractures into local ad hoc governments and is overrun with foreign squatters. Many areas of the former US have been claimed by militant Islamics who institute Sharia law. The federal government has no power and is merely a figurehead institute. Ron Paul proclaims that this what the founding fathers envisioned and his job is done.
A conservative dream come true. . . . The Republic would have a chance to be restored.
Let's see: slavery, destitution, mass murder, nuclear detonations in large American cities, chaos, anarchy, invasion and occupation. It's all a small price to pay for no longer being oppressed by Nazi seatbelt laws, which were somehow foisted upon a hapless and helpless people with no right to representation or to the redress of grievances, eh?
Luckily, the vast majority of Americans have more at stake in the survival and success of our nation than the militia loonies' sense of self-importance.
Glad to, he earmarked it for the specific purpose of the I69TTC project, feasibility studies of the TTC. Not for a 'general highway fund'
http://images.chron.com/content/news/photos/07/07/01/paul_earmarks/Transportation3.pdf (2nd on this list for $13Million, not the first $150K one)
I69 doesn't fall into existing maintenance because it is part of the new TTC highway system.
We have slavery now: illegal immigrants labor as slaves in our system. We have mass murder today, thanks to 60 years of multiculturalism dominating our immigration policies. We have anarchy today, because our leaders refuse to support the law.
And our borders remain open, and our Islamic immigration is higher now than it has been in decades. That atomic blast you predict with a Ron Paul presidency might just happen with a Giuliani "virtual" fence in effect and another eight years of immigration abuse.
The executive has the role of enforcement. Ron Paul can simply decline to enforce what he knows is unconstitutional. That alone would be a massive improvement. I know you could support that!
Al Queda's intent is to keep our troops embroiled in conflicts that draw attention to American interventionism. If you read bin Laden's interviews from the mid-1990s, that's exactly what he sought then. He's getting exactly what he wants.
With Ron Paul as president, bin Laden wouldn't be safe anywhere on the planet, as he evidently is today in Pakistan.
There are no religious tests. Therefore we can talk about any religions we like in the congress, in courts, and in any elected office of the land.
Aside from his idiotic foreign policies, it would look like the Constitutional Republic this nation was founded as.
The Fed would be forced to cut all unconstitutional social programs. Charities would flourish, taking over providing safety nets for the underprivileged and providing far more competent support for them.
Those that lived off the government would be forced to actually pull their own weight.
Hopefully the federal public education system would go under, and privatized schools would take over.
Basically, heaven would be here on Earth :D
Large meteorites hit the earth on occasion. Massive volcanoes like Krakatoa explode periodically, causing thousands of lives to be lost and affecting the global climate for a few years. Ron Paul’s election as President is less more likely than either of these events.
