So the people aren't involved with the fed govt? Hmm and here I thought we had a thing called Congressmen and Senators. I guess you're only right if you stay at home and don't vote. Right so # it if I have to have an abortion on the emergency table. I'm supposed to travel to New York for an abortion (I live in the "Bible Belt"). I could be dead by then but I guess you don't care about that. Right and charities can pay off our debt? New one on me! How are you going to pay for that?

It’s not even my words, but ok.


Socialism means little faith in each other? You really need to do some research on socialism hun. Please do it before you talk about socialism again k?


I started the sentence with “I think”, implying opinion. It is my opinion that thinking states can’t make good decisions shows a lack of faith in the state government, which is more directly affected by people than the federal government.



Oh and we're supposed to have a federal government. Once again read that Constitution you guys are always going on about k? And he'd let corporations pollute our waters too so goodbye drinking water.


Your entire argument is based on ignoring state level government, Ron Paul believes people are conscious enough to shape their state government’s responsibly. Ron Paul is perfectly inline with the constitution. If your state wants socialistic programs, that’s up to your state. If the majority of the people in your state are pro-life, then because of those people, you will have to travel to another state to get your abortion.


Wow did you fall asleep in history class? Did you forget who all could vote before the Civil Rights Act of 1964? PLEASE PLEASE read your history! And I mean actual history.


Please try not to be so absolute, he made good points as to why he voted against it. You can’t honestly believe he would allow non-whites and women to be locked out of elections.


And what do you do when there's no money in your state? What if you're Rhode Island and half of your state gets whipped out by a hurricane and it's worse than Katrina? And what if those states can't do anything to help you cause of their own problems or no more money?


It would be up to the people to freely go in their wallets to help out through charities and the like. The money comes from the people either way.

it isnt the privitization of the military that made it bad its the cronyism of the "big players" in the war industy having important contacts in washington and advising our leaders that "war is necesary, and use our bombs to do it with" i dont have the link off hand but i read about a guy. George Shultz i believe it was, who was on the board advising for war, and at the same time was getting post war contracts to his company to rebuild after we are done. Thats the kind of thing that is the problem.

Take it as you will, and since you asked the question...


Originally posted by SouthernBelle82So than tell me who could vote before the Civil Rights act of 1964? I'll be waiting to hear this one.


Answer,

The 15th Amendment Ratified in 1870 -

"1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

2. The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

The 19th Amendment Ratified in 1920 -

"The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

The civil rights act you speak of was in response to court rulings that smeared the intent of the 15th amendment in some states

So I guess the answer to your question is, everyone had the right to vote.

He can veto it but they can always over ride it. Oh well I guess you didn't think that one through.



So if it isnt up to him why are you so worried that he will get rid of it?

This thread has completely de-railed. All because of one person with an anti-Ron agenda.

Why does this continue to happen? This is a candidate who is attracting alot of support for a REASON. I do not see Ron Paul supporters attacking other candidates rarely, if ever, yet because he is such a great candidate and is attracting so much attention, you have people from all factions slandering him.

For starters take a look at Western Europe. They're more socialist than capitalist and than come back and feed me the same lines.

Progress? Progress..... I'm astonished that a person like you would be shocked that businesses are leaving our country. Let me help you.

You are not entitled to anything. I do not owe you one single dime of the fruits of my labor. It is mine, it belongs to me. You would have us all paying your way through life, you would try to force a company to stay, out of some obscene patriotic duty to a nation that steals from them through enormous amounts of regulation. How does it feel, all the progress you socialists have made in the last 50 years, doing pretty well arn't you? You've managed to force out our manufacturing jobs. You've also managed to bankrupt virtually every facet of national, state and county government there is. You've managed to turn our education system into one of the worlds worst, producing students that couldn't tell you what the word axiom meant, or find the state they live in on a map.

Yes you have made great progress. Please keep it up. With any luck every single industry will leave our country, and leave people like you to fend for themselves. Then what will you do? Work at Mcdonald's, so you can buy your lunch at Burger King? What a convoluted mess. What would you do without the big government nanny state. It has been my experience that most socialists are incapable of taking care of themselves. It seems logical, after all if you could why would you need any of the federal handouts you ask for?

But that is the great hypocritical nature of socialism. Supporters of it always claim it is to help those in need. That it will balance the scales. Socialists need poor people, they need a class of people to keep at the bottom, it's the only way you'd ever get votes. If everyone was successful, no one would need the things you talk about. In short, you depend on the poor, you need the poor, most ironically, you need the poor to stay poor. Sad.

You attack me enough times though. I'm not allowed to talk unless I agree with you. Huh I guess more of that so-called "liberty" you all preach about right? I guess you only want to hear from people who agree with you. You're not going to get a libertarian government that way hun.

I "advise" this as well, along with showing your support. I have already gotten three signs supporting Rons campaign, one in our yard and two for the major traffic areas.

REVOLUTION!

But I bet they have better education, health care and their people aren't so sick etc. Oh and do your research on Venezuela before and after Chavez became president. Before Chavez the poor people had no chance at all to improve their lives. Now even adults can get their high school diploma to get a job and there's an ambulance who can take people to the hospital and they don't have to pay a dime. Oh the horror of people taking care of each other and being treated as equals!!

No you are wrong!! If you want to debate the medias snubbing of RP or if you want to discuss your communitys involvment with RP and you can do so in a civil manner by all means do so. This thread is not about socialists vs. libertarians or republicans vs. democrats. You have derailed this thread and continue to do so, you have been insulting and crass, we have all had astonishing patience and I am quite proud of my fellow members but enough is enough.

I am afraid this thread will die a slow painful death now, I hope someone takes the OP's thoughts and the rest of the threads input into another thread that will grow more constructively. An ATS "straw" poll would be a great idea!!!

SouthernBelle82, I think I see what your problem is.

You think that the government actually controls our country don't you?

I bet you even think that the Federal Reserve is under government control also.


You probably don't even think that Naza lies to us either.


It looks like we have a brainwashed citizen that accidentally wandered into our forums.

SouthernBelle82, I will say this, If you ever wake up and see that we are all under an illusion and (The Powers That Be) are just trying to enforce this fake reality upon the human population - give me a U2U and I will personally aid in your awakening. If you decide that this is not for you then I think that you need to go back to www.cnn.com...

That’s not what I said. Giving power to the states allows for flexibility and the right of states to better adhere to their citizens.


Right so # it if I have to have an abortion on the emergency table. I'm supposed to travel to New York for an abortion (I live in the "Bible Belt"). I could be dead by then but I guess you don't care about that.


Under what circumstances would you be having an emergency abortion? And it would be the result of the people in your state.


Right and charities can pay off our debt? New one on me! How are you going to pay for that?



Working Americans like lower taxes. So do I. Lower taxes benefit all of us, creating jobs and allowing us to make more decisions for ourselves about our lives.
Whether a tax cut reduces a single mother’s payroll taxes by $40 a month or allows a business owner to save thousands in capital gains taxes and hire more employees, that tax cut is a good thing. Lower taxes allow more spending, saving, and investing which helps the economy — that means all of us.
Real conservatives have always supported low taxes and low spending.
But today, too many politicians and lobbyists are spending America into ruin. We are nine trillion dollars in debt as a nation. Our mounting government debt endangers the financial future of our children and grandchildren. If we don’t cut spending now, higher taxes and economic disaster will be in their future — and yours.
In addition, the Federal Reserve, our central bank, fosters runaway debt by increasing the money supply — making each dollar in your pocket worth less. The Fed is a private bank run by unelected officials who are not required to be open or accountable to “we the people.”
Worse, our economy and our very independence as a nation is increasingly in the hands of foreign governments such as China and Saudi Arabia, because their central banks also finance our runaway spending.
We cannot continue to allow private banks, wasteful agencies, lobbyists, corporations on welfare, and governments collecting foreign aid to dictate the size of our ballooning budget. We need a new method to prioritize our spending. It’s called the Constitution of the United States.

Mr. Ron Paul needs to be a little more "punctual" in my opinion. Yesterday, he was scheduled to be on 98.3 WOW FM on a local (and by local, I mean "most" of Iowa) radio station in Des Moines, Iowa. I was on my way to work and hoping to hear the interview before I had to be at my workstation. I don't know if he ever showed up or not, but I do know he was really late.

I've heard other examples of Ron Paul turning down opportunities to get himself more exposure on other radio programs; some of these are nationally syndicated. He could really make himself stand out if he would take advantage of doing the Conservative talk radio circuit (he's turned down invitations to do so), since many such as the likes of HELLary Clinton would never even dream about it (considering many of these hosts ask "real" questions, not the approved "rehearsed" lines of bull)!

I see, Chavez, they guy who nationalized a private company. The one that looted from his major producer. The one that shut down a news station. The horror indeed. The people will pay for it. They are paying for it. It sounds as if you are in the wrong nation. Clearly you are not able to fend for yourself. Might I suggest a move to a country more to your liking? Cuba is said to have wonderful beaches, and all expanses paid. And a health care system so great that even Micheal Moore had to come back to the United States for his doctor appointment because he was humbled at the sight of the mighty ship of state.

I would enjoy continuing this pointless debate with an elitist like yourself, however Since I have responded to you too many times, and taken the bait you threw in the water, I must now end this discussion. As well intentioned as my comments are, they serve to feed your royal trollness a little more than you can chew, thus guaranteeing you will be around here for some time. And that, is something I do not want. Therefore, good day.

what exactly does privitization have to do with a whitleblower? attacking privatization because of the terrible bush regime is a disconnect in logic, it wasnt privatization that let those scumbags detain and torture people. Some of those torturers, by the way were US soldiers.

And according to eye witness testimony a good number of them were private companies doing the torture who don't have to answer to anyone. Under privitization they don't have to answer to any laws whether international or US. At least with the US soldiers they have people to answer to. These companies can do whatever they want and are held accountable to no one.

Wow for people who like to be arrogant and boastfull you're ignorant here. Chavez doesn't own any of the money hun. The government does. The oil profits is how he pays for these national programs from education to health care. And you obviously missed the point of Michael Moore's movie. He didn't just talk about Cuba either but France, Britian and Canada. Why don't you talk about them? Oh the horror! Oh and France is another good socialist country to look to. Look at how well their people do. I guess you don't want to be better than what we are but want to go back to the Colonial days.
