Is that all you got out of those 2000 or so characters? I think I am going to vote for him because of half of what he represents and what the rest of
the world thinks of him.
What half would that be? The part that is exactly like McCain or the other half that is exactly like McCain. They have taken no solid perspective on
any sort of tangible issue. It's "Well, he said!" "Yeah, but what he said!" in the debates. Obama has stated he should "know more" about the
economy, and hasn't taken a solid position, or put any forethought into the economy when he was passing $300,000,000,000.00 for the Iraq war
And how the world views a presidential hopeful? Last time I checked, this was our country? Before Ron Paul dropped out, he was who the world would
vote for. Did you support him then? Just like Americans, these people are given elephant man, or the jack ass. Seeing as how McCain is totally
oblivious to half the things he says and does, and also a white, old, Republican, he is associated with being for war and conservatism (those things
don't belong in the same sentence together.). So, naturally, those "against the war will vote for Obama given the choice out of the two. Especially
with the way the exposure works for these men, and only these two men. Barack igetting hyped up to be something he is not. "Honest" is one of those
things. People give him this perception as if he's a peace candidate or he's going to make things less restrictive because he's a democrat, left
wing, liberal, etc..
SWITCHED POSITIONS ON IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL FROM IRAQ
FUNDED IT, UNTIL IT BECAME "UNPOPULAR."
I believe that he represents a new 'look' not because of his race, because of his stature and posture. He reminds me of someone who may have
grown up like us.
He didn't. When going got tough for his mom, he went to live with his well off grandparents that were supposedly "racist." He never lived on
foodstamps and went to an excellent prep school, or in his own words...
"For example, I was going to a fancy prep school, and my mother was on food stamps while she was getting her Ph.D."
I commend his mother, but to try and play that off in your favor and lie about it saying "When I
was on foodstamps with my mother" absolutely
disgusts me. He's making a mockery out of what is a reality with most people these days and he's using it as a manipulation tool. What a bastard.
Some of us
actually grew up on Ramen, Mac n' Cheese, and spaghetti day in, day out.. He hasn't lived like me, like us, like the average
American. The only adversity this man has faced in his life is only that of which he creates to impress people. Selling out a true struggle for a
Im not this big B.O. supporter, trust and believe that.
You're just voting for him for superficial reasons and because it's popular. I don't believe you or him. The rationale behind voting for either of
these men is ridiculous, and gets destroyed under scrutiny, as we've already been over.
I can understand how he would make "change".
And how's that? To expand the government so they're allowed to do anything they want to the American people without repercussion? Bringing home
troops right before his chance at re-election, even though the Iraqi government says "be out in 2010?" He says "change." He doesn't make
I think If you add Mccain into the list of presidents, remove a few and they are almost identical.
Obama is identical to McCain on every single important issue with the exception of health care and even then, there are similarities. Understand that
regardless, is all talk. Remember Bush's talk about "No Child Left Behind Act." The 90 billion dollar failure. They're just words. These men
don't have the know how or the will power to create change for "the little guy," as you've seen in their consistent back and forth.
I think the next few elections are going to be similiar. It depends on the 'lesser' and hopefully we vote on the lesser and lesser until
eventually the liars have no place at all.
That's the most absurd thing I've ever heard. Crooks are crooks, and in this election there is no "lesser." They voted and supported the very core
things that have been crippling this nation. They did that together.
They supported domestic spying, making enemies out of it's citizens. They support a draft, which led close to 20,000 draftees in body bags in Vietnam
with hundreds of thousands of draftees wounded, also known as "the working class war."
He's talking about not taxing the middle class so
much, but he'll sure as hell send the middle class to go fight a war they don't believe in.
They both also support NAFTA, which is a modern day slave trade and outsourcing program. Enabling slave labor to flourish and taking American jobs
away from American workers. He's not going to tax the middle class anymore than they already are, but he'll sure as hell support their unemployment
When are you
going to take a stand against the bull#?
I dont think we live in a perfect world, Ron Paul cant do any better than Mccain, or B.O. its about setting our future on the right course, and
not remaining stagnant and that cant be done in 4 years.
Of course he can. Because he holds himself and the people who believe in him to a higher standard. He doesn't pray on their naivety about social
events to capitalize on them, as does Obama and McCain. He believes in repercussions for the things he says, as the others just say "Oh, you are
misunderstanding what I was saying..." over and over again.
He has convictions and has been saying the same thing over and over again. With the exception of some federal aid after a natural disaster, he has
stuck to his guns time and time again, through popularity and criticism, but after all is said and done, the man has served the people of the 14th
district of Texas for 20 years with landslide margins of defeat, or has run unchallenged. I have my issues with some of his policies as well, but for
someone to have that much strength and fortitude through rough times without bending over backwards for votes or for special interest groups, says all
I need to know about the man's character.
He has also put some of the most daring bills into play time and time again, trying to rescue the American people from the clutches of the federal
reserve and IRS. He speaks not for votes, but for the interest of the American people. He speaks not for special interests, but for the interests of
AMERICAN PEOPLE. He knows damn well that going against the bastards in the FED have led to the death of multiple presidents, but what does he do? Just
last week he put for the same "Abolition Act" calling for the end of the Federal Reserve. He's a brave man, that unlike McCain didn't stop after
serving in the military.
This one man, with the right power could create drastic difference, unlike McCain and Obama who turn a blind eye if paid well enough.
Fisa, and all of the other things are not the right course, but his outlook and foundation of change is something we havent heard in a very
long time. Can you agree? or will that disappoint the great ron god.
Their change is face value, Ron Paul's is intrinsic change.
The difference is they say it, he would die for it.
