Edit to add:
About your point about inmigrants, are you implying that inmigrants don't have a word in this country politics? Because that would basically DQ 100%
of the population.
i'm not sure how you arrived at this conclusion.....that's not at all what i said. All i said was that it seems like english isn't your first
But since you asked...Legal immigrants, yes...they should have a say, because they're citizens. Illegal immigrants should have no say, whatsoever
because they violated our boarders, and are harming this country. Simply put, they do not belong here.
Anyway, as to your other point....you said you did your homework, but your posts say otherwise. you seem to have either misunderstood what you read,
or completely ignored large portions of it.
Take this as an example....you spoke before about taxes.....
Dr. Paul seeks to eliminate the federal income tax....you wonder how he's going to do this without damaging the system. He seeks to change the
system. By eliminating wasteful government agencies, shrinking down the size of the federal government, and doing away with the "federal" reserve.
If the federal government is smaller, then you don't need as much money to operate it. It would be like if i have 6 employees, and i only need 3..if
i fire 3 of them, i'm saving money, AND i can give the remaining 3 a little bit of a raise....the end result is that i've got more money, they've
got more money, and we're ALL happier, and better off.
That's part of what he wants to do....By eliminating the ridiculous federal income tax, we get to keep ALL of the money we go to work to earn(minus,
of course, any state taxes, and social security, however, i think he wants to restructure that as well), so we've got more money, and we're more
likely to spend that money at the marketplace, thereby stimulating the economy.
you also talked about education....yes, of course there would be federal guidelines that would need to be followed...but actually running the
educational systems would be handled on the state level. He's looking for as little federal involvement as possible.
I agree with the tax thing, because i'm sick of busting my ass nearly every day, only to find out on payday, they've scalped a bunch of money off my
paycheck, so they can continue to send soldiers off to iraq to die, and continue to give the frackin' mexicans free everything, when i gotta work my
ass off for everything. i didn't agree to pay for this crap, and i shouldn't have to.
I agree with the shrinking of the government, because they've gotten too big, too powerful, and they have far too much control, and influence over
the average citizen's life.
I agree with getting rid of the "federal" reserve system, because privately owned banks should first of all not be carrying the title "federal",
when they are in fact nothing of the sort, and a private entity should not be responsible for managing this country's monetary system.
I agree with pretty much everything the man stands for, because it means freedom and prosperity...something the other crooks applying for the job
won't even try to give us, which is why i'll be voting for him even if i hafta write him in.
Anyway, there were a bunch of other things you talked about that were misunderstood, i think.....if you wanna repost them, i'd be more than happy to
clarify, if i can.
