lol. My favorite politician? I don't have any. They are all the same in essence though perhaps not as individuals. Who seeks office? For the most
part, insecure narcissists are the players on the field. There are simply not a lot of qualified or competent people in the field of politics in the
We have a problem in our society that is a root cause for virtually all our woes.
Primarily, it is vanity and greed. We chase after things which support these constructs en mass.
Ron Paul sits alone because he's a crackpot. There are many crackpots who support his ideology. His ideology doesn't give him extra virtue where it
lacks in others.
Do you think for one second that Ron Paul is not a capitalist opportunist? He is filling a void taht has come into existence and insured his place in
a seat that he may or may not be qualified to sit in. But by merely seeing that people are fed up with being dictated to, he plays to that without
actually making any impact whatsoever.
What's his voting record? What bills does he actively support or not support. These are the solid pieces of his career that one can judge him as a
I predict that in the reality that is American politics, Paul will suffer the same fate as Ralph Nader. He won't actually get anywhere and when he
does look like it's gonna go good for him, it will fall to pieces in a matter of days and render him moot for a decade.
If you think he's gonna solve your problems, you are dreaming up the wrong tree. There is no solution under the current socio-political construct.
The socio-political construct under which we are are held cannot be reconstructed or changed, it must be done away with and a new model put in it's
It is clear to anyone with half a brain that American democracy has been whittled down into nothing more than a dictatorship of the majority.
Your civil liberties are gone, not virtually gone, they are gone. Your rights as an american are on paper only. Given an excuse and you will be taken
and held without habeas corpus and without rights.
Believe it and believe that Ron Paul will do nothing to assist in the resolution of any of this mess that we currently are in. Our society is immoral
and unethical. We have 2 generations of weak minded manipulated people who have never been called onto the carpet to display their true merits through
struggle. We have 2 full generations since ww2 that have a strange sense of entitlement and we have billions of people who are disparate to
participate in the insanity that is western civilization without any sense at all of what the commons are.
Greed, self interest, militancy. That is what we are reduced to. the muck and mire of it will eventually come to a head, but in the meantime, the rest
of the world is being killed off in droves to satisfy a few nations greed, lust, avarice and continued willful ignorance.
Each person can be the change in the world they wish to see, but like many, you and others like you would rather someone else sort it for you. Ron
Paul can't help America.
