I am happy that I posted this thread, what I have learned from reading many posts in this thread that many people who see our country falling apart
mainly because of no accountability from Wall Street, government, the worlds banking cartels, and corporate greed while many are stripping away the
middle class and watching many members in Congress passing unconstitutional regulations.
I agree we need a real change and can read that most of you want the same thing including myself.
I want nothing more than to see our corrupt officials thrown out of office or voted out of office as much as the rest of you.
Back in the 2008 elections I was a stanch Ron Paul supporter and I bought a few yard banners, and bumper stickers, I was desperate for a new change.
I was like many of you I was disgusted with the Bush administration and their illegal wars of bogus terrorism (OBL, WMD) and the like.
I read about Pauls’ letters close to the 2008 election time and even found many of them on the internet and I have to say I was very disappointed.
I was repulsed to what I was reading in Ron Pauls’ newsletters, at that point it didn’t even matter if Ron Paul wrote those newsletters or not it
was being done under his name.
Yes, I read about the different journalist and groups that may have been behind many of Paules' news articles they reeked of racist’s insults and
were the work of an opinionated and bigoted mind. To me this was sick this was not leadership, these letters were just the tip of the iceberg for
I checked what Ron Paul had voted for and voted against during his years in office and I have to say some things where good, yet there where negatives
votes on many healthcare issues and other things.
I was stunned to read in one of Pauls’ newsletters as he writes about the poor who couldn’t afford healthcare, Paul said if you didn’t have any
money to pay the doctor bills when he was young you could always barter, or ask your neighbors or family for help. I had the feeling this man was
out of touch with reality because today you cannot barter with doctors to pay for your healthcare, perhaps Ron Paul was demonstrating that you could
just walk in the doctor’s office with a couple of chickens or perhaps a cow who knows. G-d knows asking for help from my neighbors would never
happen because very few ever stayed very long in their rented homes.
Family, from what I read and have experience today it is not the same as it was 35 years ago, families used to take care of one another now it is
every dog for him or herself, we live in a very self-absorbed society.
I dropped my support for Ron Paul near the last minute in the 2008 elections, I felt if Ron Paul knew what was in those Newsletters and did absolutely
nothing about them such as to investigate who wrote these articals. Also he should have fired the editors responsible. Apparently it didn't matter
to Ron Paul, I felt a man who made a lot of money from his newsletters and with this kind of beliefs system could be a very dangerous man to hold such
political powers as President. I felt Ron Paul was a threat to people of different race's and religions in our country.
Yes, I want change, but not the kind that was demonstrated in Ron Pauls’ money making newsletters and the negative groups that supported them.
At this time I am not supporting any candidate for President I haven’t found one that supports all the people.
