Is this speculation? After all most people criticize Ron Paul because his legislation never passes, so how do you know his ideas will destroy the
Ron Paul says he wants a smaller government. I suppose he doesnt realize what his actions will do to the country.
Sure he does, it will give Americans more freedom with less government interference
He says he wants to get rid of many government agencies including the DOE, DHS, IRS, FEMA, DHHS, and the federal reserve.. What is he
thinking? These are horrible ideas. The DOE oversees the US energy, inspections, research ect.
Oh no, now the EPA can't put a tax on carbon dioxide.
The DHS keeps us safe.
Oh no, who would grope small children without the TSA? How will Michael Chertoff make money off his rape-a-scanner naked body image machines? How
would politicians not scare the public with fake terrorist videos without government websites like SITE and the CIA?
FEMA responds to disasters.
Like Katrina? That was actually blackwater
The federal reserve is a very important body of the government.
No it's private
Doesnt he realize that by abolishing this he will destroy the country?
No just the welfare/warfare state
The federal reserve is what keeps the US government going.
Lies, war, and manipulations keep the US government going
We need a strong independent federal reserve.
independent = private, no we don't need that.
Studies have shown that the more independent that are the lower the inflation rate is.
Inflation constantly rises, plus there was never a time when the fed wasn't "independent" to compare this to
He keeps calling the Fed wrong or that Bernanke doesnt know what hes doing but thats just plain wrong.
History shows Ron Paul is more right than Bernanke
He also wants to bring back the gold standard but thats another failure too.
Oh yes, that giant failure built into the Constitution. Is that a failure too? Unamerican straw man argument
He voted against the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Does he want another Enron scandal ?
Enron was caused by mark to marketing accounting, same as the housing bubble collapse. Ron Paul correctly says that the government creates the bubbles
through misinformation that leads to speculative bubbles.
He wants to get rid of the income tax
and fun the government through tariffs.
No. This is just a flat out lie: www.youtube.com...
Not only do I not want a North American Union, I want us out of the U.N., the IMF, the World Bank, the WTO, NAFTA and CAFTA. NAFTA has nothing to
do for free trade. It’s a pretense to lower tariffs, but it’s a reason to go talk to the WTO to raise tariffs. We need free trade. That’s very,
very important. But you don’t get that by world government.
Thats insane. Tariffs reduce trade and there will not be enough money to fun the government.
Tell that to NAFTA
His idea of a small government does not work in the twenty-first century, maybe in in the 1800's.
What does work? The TSA? They haven't stopped a terrorist attack in the 21st century. How about homeland security? They only infringe on people's
rights. So what's a 21st century solution? RFID chips?
He wants to have a national sales tax. There wont be enough money raised to support the government.
that's the point, it keeps government small.
Maybe if we abolish government to the point that the is almost no it might work, but thats not realistic.
