Let me start by saying that I am a young voter. I'm 21 years old, and registered independent. I believe in a little something called the
constitution, and until the Republican party embraces that document, and the philosophies of our founding fathers, they will continue to lose power in
Washington. The GOP is scratching it's head right now, in the wake of this election. They are pointing fingers, but not looking to the real leader of
the party (in my opinion), Ron Paul.
Ron Paul appeals to thousands of young voters, a demographic that Republicans can't seem to get a grasp on. Look, I'm young, and I'm not some
"leftist commie." I believe in civil liberties! I believe in a free market society! I believe in the rights of business to succeed, and also to
fail! I believe in fiscal responsibility! I believe in personal responsibility! The government is not meant to run a welfare state, nurture the
economy, or police the world. The government is responsible for providing sound money, upholding the constitution, and defending our country from
threats- both foreign and domestic.
You people in the conservative media have failed to embrace Ron Paul, and you are making a big mistake. I look at this election, and it is apparent to
me that the Republicans were never meant to win. They ran a corpse, and put no effort whatsoever into the campaign. I want to hear about the issues!
Not the fake right/left paradigm issues that plague every political campaign, but the real issues that nobody wants to address. How are we going to
pay back China? What happens if we cancel our debt? How are we going to combat the collapse of our dollar? How can we continue printing money out of
nowhere? How much money are we spending to finance an empire?
Guess what, Rush, empires always collapse. Throughout history, time after time, these great civilizations implode upon themselves. We are the Romans.
We need to return to the vision of this country that guided our founders. If we do not, we are in for a long and bumpy road ahead. People are actually
embracing socialism now, because the Republican party failed to do it's job of upholding the Republic and the Constitution. Socialism can easily lead
to Fascism, and if that ever happens I will be blaming people like you. People who have an obligation to inform the public. People who call themselves
conservative, yet praised the neocon agenda of the past eight years. Start doing your job, and in four years we can really get this country back on
