This is reality: Every four years we are given the chance to change things we don't like about our Government. It is little more than a placebo for
the masses, designed to keep them from waking up and realizing they are participating in a rigged system.
Ron Paul: Vote for change...... NOTHING WILL CHANGE!!! Ron Paul will tow the same line every other POTUS has. Voting for him anyway.
There's one HUGE difference you aren't factoring into the equation: Ron Paul tells the truth. Standing alone against Washington Potus Paul
wouldn't be able to make the huge changes. But Paul wouldn't be alone, he would have the American people in his corner. They will be behind him
because he won't pander and sugarcoat or "newspeak" the facts (IRS "increasing revenue", anyone?).
Isn't it scary that he is the only one on those debate stages saying WE ARE BROKE, WE CAN'T AFFORD TO RUN THINGS LIKE THIS? No one dares argues him
on it ~ it's the truth plain and simple. They just ignore Paul and pretend his words were never uttered.
Ron Paul's kind of honesty is what America desperately needs right now.
BTW, Glad you'll vote for him anyway

Paul's foriegn policy ideas are exactly why I would not vote for him. Assuming he was to win, and was able to reduce our military presence around the

Does anyone realize what kind of negative impact that will have on an already fragile economy? First you have the people released from service which
go on unemployment, then you have the entire defense industry brought to it's knees, which includes hundreds of civilian corporations, so add those
millions of people to the unemployment line.
You think we have problems now?
It's not as if Ron Paul would take office, and the next day hang "going out of business" signs on all our oversea bases. It would be a process of
reduction which wouldn't cripple our economy as you fear. That sector of the economy could easily adapt to a peacetime role. Combined with economic
planning and stimulus, new jobs can be created.
As an American Citizen, I reject the notion that we must rely and depend on the Military Industrial Complex for economic stability. This industry
thrives on war. Without endless conflict there is no demand for tools of war, and this industry has done far too much to ensure demand is high.
Weapon makers should exist to serve countries but it's been twisted: now the countries serve the industry.
I don't want to prosper in America if the cost is smartbombs illegally taking out "suspects" and their families. In this brainwashed fear called
"War on Terror", right has become wrong, and they have tried to convince us that 2 wrongs DO make a right. All the while, every bullet, every
missile, every drone used fuels the M.I.C...to make and sell more bullets, missiles and drones.
I think a few economic bumps in the road would be a small price to pay for a chance to be free of this morally bankrupt system.
