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.edit on 23-12-2011 by impressme because: (no reason given)
