you touched on this earlier, asking if i would vote against obama. i definitely voted against bush, but there was more to it than that (just like
there is more to it this time around); obama is a great speaker, his use of the 'change' theme (which everybody was hungry for but nobody got, really.
he "changed" the few people benefitting from the presidential administration from energy tycoons to wall street manipulators and investment banks).
but again, you raise great points that i think are good for the forum. what is paul's platform? why are there so many people here at ats that support
paul? what are the views of his that so many atsers agree with?
like i said, his ideas regarding ending the war and becoming more like pre-WWI america appeal to me. i think we could be something to be proud of
again if we actually focused on our own country and stopped paying to keep troops all over the globe. paul has mentioned this several times. this is
the most important thing to me because of the disgusting amount of money we pour into other countries through our military and BS private contractors.
i don't believe in the boogieman anymore, i don't believe that "they hate our freedom."
i do believe we can be a great country if we focused on our own country. i am desperate for this to happen. i am desperate for american lives to take
precedence over money. because the system seems to be a sham, i can't say i would be surprised if paul changed his song after he was elected, anyway.
but i do like some of his message now; enough of it, and passionately enough so that i support him against a clear shill like obama has proved himself
