Here is my take on Ron Paul:
Reduce the current size of the federal government to... um... limit it.
Abolish the income tax to keep the government limited.
Actually follow the Constitution which limits the federal government.
Personal liberty and freedom.
Return to the gold standard.
Why not? Check!
Stop U.S. adventurism overseas and go to war only with a declaration of war.
Let Iran have all the nukes it wants.
Che...err...no. No, can’t do that one. I guess that cancels out the one above as well in certain circumstances.
The point is, Ron Paul brought more good to the table than bad. Always has. I never considered him presidential material but ignoring his ideas is what the Republican Party has done for years and years and look where we are today.
Now someone will come in claiming he is racist... maybe he is, I have no idea. I have never heard of him voting for or sponsoring a bill in Congress institutionalizing racism so for me... I don’t care.
Now someone will jump in and claim he gave us Romney in the primaries. If (candidate of your choice) couldn’t win because of Ron Paul then he/she really wasn’t much of a canditate, was he/she.
Now someone will call him a fruit cake. Okay, I’ll give you that one but he is a fruit cake that has espoused limited goveernment and personal liberty. Christmas is right around the corner and I happen to like fruit cake!
“Christmas is right around the corner and I happen to like fruit cake!”
You have been drinking too much of that illegal distilled Kentucky “spring water.” Your brains are addled, and your moral judgement warped.
Here is how the libertarian party rolls.
Anybody so hard left that they were of the libertarian party, is a nut case.
Libertarian Party Platform:
Throw open the borders completely and shut down the Border Patrol and INS; only a rare individual (terrorist, disease carrier etc.) can be kept from freedom of movement through political boundaries.
Homosexuals; total freedom in the military, gay marriage, adoption, child custody and everything else.
Abortion; zero restrictions or impediments.
Pornography; no restraint, no restrictions.
Drugs; Meth, Heroin, Crack, and anything new that science can come up with, zero restrictions.
Advertising those drugs, prostitution, and pornography; zero restrictions.
Military Strength; minimal capabilities.
