Ron Paul also wants to deport every single undocumented immigrant. Paul shamelessly exploits 911 for his anti-immigrant agenda when he says a number
of 9/11 terrorists had expired visas when he knows full well there were no 911 terrorists and that the attack was really a controlled demolition.
Kucinich wants to grant permanent legal residence to immigrants living in the US for 5 or more years and conditional legal status and work
authorization to all law abiding immigrants living in the US for less than 5 years.
Ron Paul is utterly correct - undocumented means illegal, illegal means go home and make your papers and try again! With Americans losing 1/2 a
million jobs a month, you really think it makes sense to have the country filled with extra job seekers who compete for the lawful citizens jobs, but
will work for less under worse conditions? They will get the jobs - and the money will go straight out of America - slowing down the recovery, and
costing YOU money.
Ron Paul opposes the International Criminal Court where he justifies it by saying the ICC wants to try our soldiers as war criminals and that they are
a threat to our independence as a nation. Well I say if our soldiers commit war crimes then they should be prosecuted as war criminals. The ICC is no
threat to our independence as a nation. The only reason for anyone to oppose the ICC is to prevent international criminals from being brought to
If your soldiers commit crimes of war, they should be tried in the US - not by some international court. Submitting to any international authority
is losing some of your countries sovereignty. Who is better qualified to judge US citizens then the US courts - if you can't find justice at home,
don't think you will find it by going abroad.
Paul falsely claims that the jihadists are our direct enemies.
Produce some evidence - I've listened to RP a long time. He mentions that AlQaida were created by the CIA to sow dissent and provide US support and
that it was a was a CIA policy to promote Islamic extremism.
Paul also falsely claims that our reason for going to war was a UN resolution. The UN had nothing to do with why our country went to war. Oil is the
reason why our country went to war but Paul doesn’t mention this and instead blames the UN to support his anti-UN agenda.
I'd like you to support this as well. I've heard RP many times DENOUNCING Bush for usurping congress and deciding to go to war without
congressional approval. He made it clear on the many occasions I heard him speak on this, that the president usurped the constitution and congress,
and that if congress had been consulted he would have voted AGAINST the war entirely. I have NEVER heard him speak regarding the UN in respect to
ON the topic of the UN. If the UN security council members who hold veto continue to do so, then the UN is nothing more than a sham - which it is.
Paul is also an anti-abortion fanatic.
He's a fanatic? Please. I heard RP talking about this, and he described abortion as violence. Thinking about it - I respect his point of view.
Abortions can often leave an emotional mark on the would be mother - they are a form of violence.
He doesn't protest the use of contraceptives. Proper family planning, education and closer knit families will prevent unwanted pregnancy.
Paul wants to redefine life as beginning at conception. I guess he wants to throw any woman who has an abortion in jail. Paul also wants to overturn
Roe vs Wade. Paul claims federal court tyranny has caused the deaths of 45 million of the unborn. His statement is an oxymoron. You can’t die if
you’ve never been born. Paul is trying to impose his religious beliefs on those who don’t share them. Kucinich used to be against a woman’s
right to have an abortion but his views on the issue changed several years ago and now he’s a strong defender of a woman’s right to choose.
THis is a divisive issue - your obviously a pro-choice. DOesn't make RP wrong, he is a Dr after all, and has delivered a lot of babies. I respect
his point of view and greater experience than mine with this issue. I don't necessarily agree - but I haven't seen any mention of 'throwing women
in jail' as a response to abortion - he is tolerant and shows compassion and wisdom - your attempt at hyping just makes YOU look crazy.
Kucinich discusses 88 different issues on his website. Paul only discusses 10 topics on his website.
I don't have any idea what this has to do with anything? I might say, focusing on 10 most important things and getting them done will probably have
more impact than trying to get 88 things done and achieving only the least important of them.
I have nothing against Kucinich either - he seems like an honest politician, which is like meeting a talking dog - so good luck to him.
His economic policy though is twisted into stupidity by the false economics that are both being taught and espoused in Washington.
