milo, not everyone is a freeloader. Some people do take help when needed and repect the system. I dont think those kids that are being popped out
should be punished either, they didnt ask to be born. I would not want to see those children starve or not have health care just beause thier parents
are freeloaders, if in fact they are. Like I said some people really do need the help sometimes. A very wise man explained to fee how free health care
and human services are a non issue in the UK. Its just know that helping people is right, and have officials that carry that out for them.
You cannot throw out a barrel of apple beacause there are a few rotten ones. Ron Paul wants to throw out the barrels, and say to hell with the poor.
And of all times in history when real hardworking people are struggling to save thier homes, eat, and survive. Many dont have homes and need
government help because jobs are hard to find in some areas. As for government forcing us, we the people elected these people with these ideals, so
they are not forced upon us. The majority has accepted these programs and are accepting them.
First of all, Ron Paul realizes that over the years some people have become dependent on government to get by...I'm not talking about people who
recently lost jobs/homes/whatever and must resort to food stamps or other temporary help. He will admit that he is against this dependency, but you
must realize that most of his policies are about returning power to the states, which is how our country was originally founded.
You must also realize that he doesn't expect everyone to agree with him, and as a strict Constitutionalist he would only do what the Constitution
allows him to do--like bringing home the Troops. Most things would have to get cleared through Congress. He would not, however, sign any new bill
that was Un-Constitutional.
Anyway, he wants to end all these wars and use some of the money saved there to prop up these entitlement programs. SLOWLY, over time, he wants to do
away with them. If his policies were enacted and income tax were done away with, etc. maybe even some of those who have spent a lifetime on welfare
would want to return to work...since they'd be keeping their whole check. If he can get his policies enacted about government keeping their noses out
of business, jobs would explode here. At the very least, the next generation of welfare recipients would not NEED to go on welfare since there'd be
an abundance of jobs.
All these un-Constitutional job rules/regulations by government cost money, push jobs out of the country, or make employers here unable to afford more
workers or leery to hire new employees because who knows what new law is going be enacted next week. If Congress, etc. followed the Constitution, we
would not be in the mess we're in.
Paul also wants to SLOWLY change the SS system over time, upping the age, allowing the younger people to opt out.
None of his policies would affect anyone currently on welfare or currently on SS, like I said, slow transition.
I really wish people would do very thorough research on Ron Paul. He loves this country, and cares about its people, including you. He truly works for
We the People, not special interests. He predicted this economic mess well in advance, has solutions, and is exactly what this country needs to get
