...and we have just heard from the Republican establishment. How's life in the country club?
Since you ask, this diversity thing is killing us. Used to be a man could have a quiet drink after a hard day on the course. Now? In comes Biff and Muffy off the tennis court going on and on about their daughters' coming out parties. God I miss the good ol' days when our wives stayed at home and talked about these things at tea.
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!
