Are you actually not sane?
It's perfectly reasonable to dislike something without positing an alternative.
Here's a good example:
I don't like tomatoes on sandwiches. So if I have a burger, no tomatoes.
In your world I'd need to replace those tomatoes with something.
In addition, as you seem to be so simple minded you think that Ron Paul is the PERFECT candidate for everyone, I'll list a few of his policies that
most liberals wouldn't like:
"Paul advocates withdrawing U.S. participation and funding from organizations he believes override American sovereignty, such as the United Nations,
the International Criminal Court, the Law of the Sea Treaty, the WTO, NATO, and the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America."
"During the Cold War, he supported Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative"
"Paul was the lone member out of 415 voting to oppose a House measure to create a National Archives exhibit on slavery and Reconstruction, seeing
this as an unauthorized use of taxpayer money"
He would eliminate many federal government agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department
of Commerce, the US Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA), the Interstate Commerce Commission and the Internal Revenue Service,
Disagree with most of that
"he often requests earmarks for bills that he supposedly knows will pass no matter which way he votes. For example, in 2007, he requested nearly $400
million dollars in earmarks in bills he voted against"
He has asserted that Congress had no power to impose a direct income tax and supports the repeal of the sixteenth amendment.
"He has also called for the removal of all taxes on gold transactions."
"Paul endorses defederalization of the health care system. Paul also states that he has an opposition to virtually all federal interference with the
"Paul was one of only three members of Congress that voted against the Sarbanes-Oxley Act"
"Paul believes that prayer in public schools should not be prohibited at the federal or state level"
Quote: "The notion of a rigid separation between church and state has no basis in either the text of the Constitution or the writings of our Founding
"In 1997, Paul introduced a Constitutional amendment giving states the power to prohibit the destruction of the flag of the United States."
"He believes the internet should be free from government regulation and taxation, and is opposed to internet gambling restrictions"
"Paul has been criticized for voting against legislation to help catch online child predators"
"He has also fought for the right of pilots to be armed."
"When asked whether individuals should be allowed to own machine guns, Paul responded, "Whether it's an automatic weapon or not is, I think,
Quote: "So practically speaking, the assault weapons ban does nothing to make us safer."
"Paul believes that juries deserve the status of tribunals, and that jurors have the right to judge the law as well as the facts of the case."
"In 1997, Paul voted to end affirmative action in college admissions."
"Paul calls himself "strongly pro-life" and "an unshakable foe of abortion."
"Paul stated in August 2007 that at the state level "capital punishment is a deserving penalty for those who commit crime"
How much more do you want?
Would you feel better if maybe you drew up an entire list of every single one of his opinions and we went through it one by one?
RP is a LIBERTARIAN (I am not) and a REPUBLICAN (I am not).
