I have specified many many times specifically why I don't like Ron Paul's platform. I simply don't understand why I type it down if people aren't
going to bother to read it.
His stance on Abortion
is tyrannical. He wants to usurp the judicial branch of government
giving more power to the executive branch and outlaw abortion. (sure he states that he wants the States to have the sole responsibility to determine
if abortion will remain legal, except that he wants to also define life as beginning at conception, which would make it a federal murder charge if a
doctor preforms an abortion.)
His stance on Education
is counter productive. His idea is that the poor should home
school their children, and the rich should have the opportunity to give their children a decent education. Sure that's fine if you have enough money
to send your children off to a private school, but if you aren't wealthy enough to afford tuition, you will be forced to home school your children,
which means that a parent won't be able to work because they will have to stay home schooling their kids. For the under educated parents out there
this means that their children will have far fewer opportunities in life because they simply won't have the education needed to succeed in this
His stance on Immigration
is disastrous, he wants to repeal the 14th Amendment and if
that goes, then no child born in this country whether or not their parents are citizens will be citizens of this country. He doesn't specify who will
have the privilege of being a citizen, but if his education stance is anything to go by it will only be the people that can afford to pay for their
children to be citizens. Sure, on the surface this seems like it would be a great way to get rid of those darn dirty illegals (to the TEA Party,
anyone who's Latino that speaks Spanish regardless of their actual immigration status) But in reality all it will do is further cause a rift between
the rich and the poor, now the poor won't even have the right to be a citizen of the country of their birth.
And finally his religion
is also an issue. This religious zealot wants to bring
(the Christian version of Sharia law) to the United States. Stating that “I
have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, and I endeavor every day to follow Him in all I do and in every position I advocate.” Don't get
me wrong, we do have freedom of religion in this country, and his personal religious beliefs are his own business. But the second he uses those
beliefs in our government, I feel he has crossed a serious line, and I for one will not live under Cannon Law, Sharia Law, or any other religious
dogma, he can keep his faith to himself and if he wants to govern this country, he can keep his archaic violent religion out of my life.
Maybe that's why FOX News won't give him the time of day, maybe he's too much of an extremist even for them.
