I can make up my own mind, unlike you who can't even pick ANY candidate. Waiting on the independents, that's smart, as none of them will ever
get mentioned by the MSM nor will they receive more than 1/10th of a percent of the votes.
We are the idiots, yet the independents are much more unelectable than RP. Nice Pythonesque logic you have going there.
Yes, you are entitled to your opinion, just as I am entitled to mine. I will wait on the independents because that is who are really going to fix this
The problem I see with people worshiping Ron Paul like he is some sort of Messiah, is that he is a part of the same two party paradigm that isn't
working in this country. He's not different from any other Republican. When people finally wake up and see that the two parties aren't working for
the people, maybe, just maybe, the independents will start receiving more than 1/10 of a percent of the vote.
That is one of the problems in this country, the apathy. People think that voting for an Independent candidate is a waste of a vote. When in reality,
voting for the same two parties that are systematically destroying this country in my opinion is the real wasted vote.
Aristotle once said:
Those men therefore who are as much inferior to others as the body is to the soul, are to be thus disposed of, as the proper use of them is their
bodies, in which their excellence consists; and if what I have said be true, they are slaves by nature, and it is advantageous to them to be always

I am reading this book now and it's very enlightening, and it shows how politicians view the general population today.
The repeal of the 14th Amendment for instance is exactly what Aristotle was talking about. They wish to create a slave caste in this society. People
who aren't by birthright citizens. Who then, can only gain those rights given to citizens through either political or financial means.
Yet people are overjoyed at the prospect of them and their children being stripped of their birthright citizenship because the politicians like Ron
Paul who have convinced them that this act won't affect them, but affect the children of "those darn dirty illegals" (to the TEA Party, anyone that
is Latino that speaks Spanish).
Yet, none of these politicians specify how someone will receive the "honor" of being a full fledged citizen of the United States after the 14th
Amendment is repealed. After it's no longer a birthright, are we to assume that the person will have to be born in the right political or economic
family in order to be granted the "honor" of being an actual citizen of this country?
And of course, this goes along with Ron Paul's vision of the poor being forced to home school their children. They simply can't have the slaves
intermingling with the Citizens. The citizens children will of course have the advantage of going to private schools and receiving a proper education
and all the opportunities that come with a decent education, while the poor will be remanded to menial labor or poor paying jobs without any
opportunities to advance themselves or hope to gain for themselves "the good life" as Aristotle puts it.
"all men created equal" that is until Ron Paul gets his way, then you can say goodbye to that phrase.
