It will come as no surprise to anyone that I don't like Ron Paul. It will come as even less of a surprise to anyone that I especially don't like Ron
Paul supporters. To that end, this thread will be biased. But I will devote the main focus of my angst towards the candidate.
Now, it's not a personal dislike I have for the man, after all, I don't really know him, I just know him from what he says on TV and what gets
reported on the internet. And so, in an attempt to keep this strictly against the man's campaign platform and not the man himself, I will be taking
all my points directly from his campaign website.
* Immediately saving lives by effectively repealing Roe v. Wade and preventing activist judges from interfering with state decisions on life by
removing abortion from federal court jurisdiction through legislation modeled after his “We the People Act.”
* Defining life as beginning at conception by passing a “Sanctity of Life Act.”
Now, abortion is a terrible thing, I personally am pro choice, but that doesn't mean I want to force every woman to get an abortion. And yes, there
are many alternatives to abortion out there, adoption for instance. But, abortion, I believe should always be an option. However, Ron Paul doesn't
want that option for anyone. In fact, Ron Paul wants to usurp the Supreme Court's Constitutional roll and as president take that power away from them
and make all abortions illegal by making it a federal crime to get an abortion.
This the insidiousness that is his “Sanctity of Life Act
” This will make it
so it's considered a person's life begins at conception. Thereby making all abortions preformed in the United States a federal murder charge.
Doesn't sound like liberty to me. Sounds to me like government intervention in a person's private life.
Don't get me wrong. Abortion is not something that can be taken lightly, I believe it's a personal choice to terminate a pregnancy. I just don't
think that the government is the right people to make that choice for you.
* Help parents better educate their children by providing parents with a $5,000 per child tax credit for tutors, books, computers, and other
K-12 related educational needs.
* Ensure that the federal government treats high school diplomas earned through homeschooling the same as other high school diplomas.
It's not hard to see that there is a problem with the education system in this country. But Ron Paul's solution to this problem simply won't work.
1st, for some reason Ron Paul thinks that the second wage earner in a family today only makes $5000.00, which is preposterous. How is it better for
one parent in a two income household to have to give up their job in order to teach their children at home instead of working that second job and make
sure that the family is stable?
2nd, How does Ron Paul think that many parents actually are capable of teaching their children and preparing them for the global economic environment
we live in today?
Have you met some parents today?
Ok, that's just one of millions of examples. Do you seriously think these people are in any way capable of homeschooling their children?
This of course is the age old technique to dumb down the population in order to more easily control it. If you control the education system, (i.e.
Make it so that only the wealthy can properly educate their offspring, then you will ensure long family lines of success. While the peasantry are
regulated to abstract and continued failure, with limited opportunities, and near zero hope of ever bettering themselves.
* End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be
able to control our immigration problem.
Now this is something that a lot of Conservatives are for. They want to get rid of those “damn dirty Mexicans”. While conservatives don't really
care what country south of the border they come from, or whether they are actually here legally or not, they just want all those Latinos out of the
Ron Paul's idea of ridding this country of all Latinos is the removal of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution. Which gives every American their
citizenship from birth. The problem with this is that Ron Paul doesn't explain exactly how or who would be worthy of American citizenship once his
draconian paradise is enabled.
Perhaps parents will have to pay a hefty fee in order to bless their children with citizenship to our great land. Perhaps your family will have to be
economically viable in order to be worthy of citizenship, perhaps your family will have to be registered Republicans in order for your children to
But, what is more likely, in Ron Paul's world, you will have to be white enough to be considered American at birth. (This is of course to appease his
White Supremacist supporters
) But it has implications across the
board, along with his homeschooling plan to dumb down our future generations and his ban on abortions, a Ron Paul president will ensure that this
country will have enough dumb slaves to work for less than minimum wage or be deported out of the country of their birth. Why have Latinos do the work
that can be done by the underprivileged, undereducated, and citizenship-less population?
Statement of Faith
“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.”
Religious zealotry at it's finest, right at the top of his tab proudly proclaiming that he wants to move this country into a theocracy and thus
destroy our Republic.
Ron Paul wants Cannon Law
to rule in America. For those of you who aren't familiar with
Cannon Law, it's the Christian version of Sharia Law, you know, that idea that people are so afraid Muslims will take over America with? Well, you
won't have to worry about that with Ron Paul as “Pastor in Chief” instead you will have to worry about beheadings for being a Heretic instead of
being an Infidel.
Don't get me wrong, I am all for freedom of religion in this country, the problem I have is when those religions worm their way into our politicians.
We have separation of church and state so that we don't have church dogma legislating our lives through law. If your a Christian, and you hold those
values, good for you, keep them, also, keep them to yourself and don't force your code of conduct and your values into my life. Some might consider
that a libertarian viewpoint. You know, not having government interfering into your life?
But not Ron Paul, he's all for letting GOD dictate to the American people what they can and cannot do.
