I like a lot of what he says, but just a couple of questions for people who have actually read his manifesto.
He said that he wants to get rid of income tax, or did I hear that wrong?
What will he replace it with? If he doesn't replace it, how will roads get repaired, and how will the police and other public servants get paid? Does
he want zero public services? Does he expect an army of people to give their time for nothing? I don't get how this will work. Will he just write off
the debts owed to other countries?
Also, I've heard him say before that he doesn't believe in any kind of government health-care. So for absolute freedom, would you be prepared to
become a zero compassion country.
I'm British and despise what my country has become, but I truly think that our health-care system is the thing we as a country should be most proud
of, despite constant efforts by Conservative governments to destroy it.
I repeat, I like a lot of the stuff he says. I'm a bit of an armchair socialist libertarian at heart. If you've read some of his campaign literature
and know what you're talking about, please fill me in on the details.
This is not an attack on Paul. I'm just curious as to whether he actually has a plan, or just rhetoric and ideology.
