The powers that be will never allow Ron Paul in office!! He preaches ethics and standards, something NO president is allowed to have!!
FYI Ron Paul has my vote, wasted or not.....
All politicians preach ethics and standards.
Whether they follow them is another matter.
Tell me. Does Ron Paul - already an independently wealthy man - forgo his salary, pensions, and health care options as a member of Congress? No, no he doesn't.
Tell me, since Ron Paul seems to disagree with the Republican party on pretty much all their platforms, has he yet divorced the party to either start his own or run for his district as an independent? No, no he has not.
Tell me, since Ron Paul advocates freedom at all levels, has he ever once addressed the fact that poverty severely inhibits freedom? No, no he has not.
Tell me, since Ron Paul is an ethical, freedom-minded medical doctor (granted, an ophthalmologist, but whatever), does he support a woman's right to self-determination with regards to her sexual and medical life? No, no he does not.
Tell me, since Ron Paul has such high ethics, does he ever once suggest ethical behavior such as caring for one's neighbor in need, or forgiving the debts of those who truly cannot pay? No, no he does not.
Ron Paul is all sermon, no fish. Your messiah is more of a messy "eh."
