It was a difficult choice for me... I sat with the options in my mind and mulled them over for quite some time. I attempt not to agonize over
decisions, as that just breeds an unhealthy worry in me that derails my thought process and cripples my decision making power, but in truth I did
agonize over this for a short while. Even as I was typing these very words, I asked myself, "Am I serious? Am I completely for real? Would I really
choose Ron Paul over buttered bread?"
Ron Paul > buttered bread
Yes... that is correct! You have straight from the TrueAce's mouth:
I would choose Ron Paul over buttered bread.
And I'm being completely 100% serious in my statement. If I knew for a fact that I could have Ron Paul as my president if I gave up buttered bread, I
would do it now.
And just to have you know, I adore it (buttered bread FTW!). The equations with me comparing buttered bread to just about anything usually go in favor
of buttered bread. For example: women's makeup? Buttered bread. Nike shoes? Buttered bread. Television? Buttered bread. Internal combustion engines?
Buttered bread. Well... I guess we know that those gas-hogs are on the way out anway(or should be... *shakes fist at oil companies*), but still...
it's the point that matters! I'd be willing to give up my spouse wearing makeup, myself wearing Nike shoes, watching television, or driving a
gas-powered car for my buttered bread. That's saying a lot.
And yet - yes indeed! My buttered bread could be given up in lieu of Ron Paul leading us back to Constitutional law in the U.S. of America! But like I
said, I almost didn't go through with it and was about to change it to something else instead of my beloved buttered bread... but I know in this
world that sacrifices must be made sometimes... I know that if the choice ever came down to it... I would use the old Nike motto and just do it.
Until I know it does, however, methinks I'll continue to enjoy buttered bread in all of its buttery and wholesome glory.
On a slightly more related note, there isn't much to say about why I choose him over all the other cardboard cutouts - everyone has nailed it for me.
Like some others mentioned, I do not necessarily agree with him on every issue, but the fact that everything I disagree with would be affairs of state
only increases my respect for him. His voting record is pristine and untouchable, his nickname in congress (Dr. No) is well-placed and everything he
has ever voted no for was only because it was against what the Constitution called for (i.e. it was a state issue rather than a federal one). He is
well-meaning, honest, likable, charismatic, has been married to the same woman for over 40 years (WTG Dr. and Mrs. Paul!), honest (did I mention that
already?), and is willing to represent the TRUE voice of the American (er, United Statesian) people!
Like I said on another thread in so many words, the choices of ALL candidates boils down to this:
If you want to keep the Constitution and go back to making most issues a matter of states rights, VOTE RON PAUL!
If you want to forge ahead into a 'brave new world' and draft a new charter for the U.S. that is all gung-ho about continuing our merry trek down
the road of federalization, VOTE ANYONE ELSE!
This is the clearest choice for a United States citizen in the history of all the primaries I've ever had the 'joy of participating in (and probably
for my father as well as his father's father). The rhetoric has been swept away, the political mud has cleared, and this is our (perhaps last) chance
to claim our right to have a say and prepare ourselves before the final blow is struck by the powerhungry-elite to our beloved nation...
I hear Ron Paul is death-proof BTW...
So glad to disappoint you scientist.
