Having read the article, and the statements posted the following can be stated:
The president is as dangerous as we chose to let him be. Make no mistake, any of the Presidents that we elect are dangerous to the USA, as they are
the sole symbol that reflects the country. The president should speak with one voice, reflecting the will of the majority of the citizens of this
country, while maintaining the rights of the minority. The job of the President is difficult, every action and word analyzed, watched constantly. If
the country does poorly, he is criticized and blamed, if the country does well, he gets the praise. It is the ultimate thank less service job, that
so many covet, yet as it appears, very few actually understands.
That being stated, the reality that many in the news and around the world are having to admit to themselves, is that the USA is turning inward, that
we are tired of dealing with the problems of the rest of the world, that the feeling of isolationism is present, steadily growing. And can you blame
the US? A high and record unemployment, civil problems, and a society that is demanding not to be ignored. The US congress has foolishly and
stupidly ignored the will of the people, speaking with a voice of very few, promises that are not kept, and in short we are tired. And it appears as
now there is a person who wants the job of running the country, to take the reins of power.
The press has not focused on Ron Paul, they tend to discount him and ignore him, and that is the one flaw of the entire political process this year.
They did not see who he represents, and mention such very rarely, as he represents an ever growing segment of the population of the country, that is
starting to become the majority, instead of the minority, he is a symbol of the independent voter. These are a group that does not go or vote solely
for the democrats or the republicans. So far he is showing that he follows the one thing that is the final authority in the US, the constitution.
His ideas and what he has stated scares those who have craved and sought the halls of power, while appealing to the people who is matters in the end
of the day.
But like all good things that appear, we must and should pause to think is this really what we want and what will be the final outcome, cause no
matter who we elect into office, it is 4 years of this person being in office, and as long as they do not violate the terms of that employment, it can
be either a good 4 years or 4 bad ones. We must be careful and make a wise choice, cause who ever takes the election will make a determination of the
course of this proverbial paper skiff in a stormy sea.
For myself, I am reserved about who I will cast my vote for, as I will not say who I am going to vote for, it will be for the candidate who I believe
will do the best for the country, not just for my own personal feelings.
