Which candidate or party will ever align with your 'individual' rights? you make it seem like Ron Paul is the only candidate against individual
Again, Ron Paul is not really so focused on improving individual rights, despite his claims. He's interested in giving the states more rights. Ron
Paul and his supporters equate states rights with individual rights even though they are not at all mutually exclusive.
The media blackout on RP has been blatantly obvious, you seem like you do your hw, go do it on this topic
There's no media blackout on Ron Paul. Ron Paul's popularity is reflected in the media. As I say, I've seen instances where Ron Paul's name was
purposefully kept out, but his support and popularity in my opinion is very closely aligned to the level of attention he receives in the media. Once
he proves that he can win a significant amount of the states in the GOP primaries, the media will pay attention, likewise. It's not easy to deny
which person is gaining the most votes.
Cain got a huge surge in the media from his FL straw poll win and is now up in many national polls and is now taking the easy peasy
establishment votes away from Perry. Going by your 'popularity' logic, Ron Paul won the most straw polls, he should get the most media attention
and now be at the top of the polls.
Cain is new to the game. Yes he is an established corporate soul, he's really no secret to the media (he was a vocal tea partier prior), but he is
new to the game. He is a tea partier, he has not held a political position in DC, and he is african american, which, whether you like or not, does a
play a part in his popularity and fascination with the media, as was Obama. He won't get far in the elections though, he probably won't win the
primaries, and pritty soon folks will forget about him. He's just this last months hype, just as Bachmann was before, just as Perry after.
You don't like like RP, you don't like his policies, you shouldn't care then,
I shouldn't care then? If this man intends to run for the presidency with his views and policies, ya damn straight it's my business. I'm pritty
sure that Obama running for president was every tea partier and libertarians business and why not? Ultimately whom ever gains the presidency will
have somewhat of a chance to implement many of their policies. Ron Paul will have his opportunity, and I think his policies will just drag this nation
back toward the social issues of the 60's, which he and Paulers want anyway. It's my business already, I don't need the federal or state
governments dictating what the hell I can do with my property, with my social life, with my love life, with my body. Ron Paul wants the state
governments to get that opportunity, and I'm sorry, I'm just not going to accept that.
Don't get all bent out of shape on abortion, its ok that the federal law mandates legal abortion
Hold on there cowboy, where
did the federal government mandate folks to get abortions? If you're pro-life and if you find yourself in a
pregnancy or with a loved one who is pregnant, you and choose whichever path you want. If you or a loved has been assualted, you can choose the path
of abortion or not. It's your personal
, it's yours to make, and you can stay the hell out of the decisions of others as well. This matter is
also not the business with the state governments. As far as I can see it, the minute they try to get involved over somebody else's body, they are
stepping the line of privacy and individual liberty in this country, regardless of your rational.
As for the federal government on this issue, they rightfully restored this matter back to the individual
, they restored self
of individuals over this issue, before state governments got involved in the 1820's. Government should have stayed out of this
issue in the first place.
