This whole thread is bogus to begin with. Stating that Ron Paul has failed in congress is born of complete ignorance on Outkasts part. The
implication is that his bills must be poor to not have support that is not true at all. Outkast if you are going to pull this and want to be
considered the least bit impartial you could list some of the bills for people to decide on.
I provided links that list out every one of his bills. I'm not going to clutter up a thread with the text of every bill he ever wrote.
To me, the content doesn't matter at all. The numbers speak for themselves. He tried to do something 464 times and failed 463 times. I don't care
if they were crappy bills or the best bills in the world...he FAILED to show leadership and get his peers to support him.
You can try to use this "His failure shows that congress is wrong and thus he is successful" argument...but I really don't think anyone believes
that...not even you.
If Ron Paul had such great ideas and was such a great leader...he would of been able to garner support and get at least a few of his bills passed in
14 years. Let that sink in...FOURTEEN YEARS....1 bill passed out of 464. No matter how you look at those numbers, it only says one thing...he sucks
Really what we are looking at here are pieces of legislation put forth that Outkast has kept us in the dark on and tried to lead people to lazy
to research for themselves into believing they were poor pieces.
I'm not keeping anyone in the dark...everyone has the ability to follow the links and read the bills. If I wanted to keep people in the dark...I
wouldn't of provided a link for each session of congress that has a list of all the bills Ron Paul sponsored.
What more do you want??? I can't list every single bill he sponsored in the OP...that is a ridiculous request. All the links are there...all the
information is in the links...I can only do so much and then it is up to you to do the rest.
In reality many of them are very very big successes that were thwarted by a failure of congress
They can't be a very big "successess" if they weren't passed.
YOU may think they were a good idea...Ron Paul probably thought they were a good idea...but obviously they weren't good enough to get passed. People
vote for representatives that represent their own views and opinions...if people have voted for people that agree with Ron Paul...then that means most
people don't agree with Ron Paul's ideas.
This is how a Republic works.
This makes the thread highly biased as may or may not have been intentional (i suspect it was intentional).
The thread shows cold hard facts.
Ron Paul sponsored 464 bills in 14 years...he only got one very insignificant bill passed.
It's not biased at all...it doesn't show Ron Paul in a good light...but that is his own fault. It makes Ron Paul look bad because IT IS BAD.
So Outkast you are one of the many fools leading the more foolish if you have come to your conclusions about Ron Paul in a similar manner as
you are hoping to mislead people reading your thread (i hope it is a case of ignorance rather than you intentionally misleading because if that is the
case you can still learn something). This is how pure ignorance spreads.
Choosing to deny and ignore facts is ignorance.
Presenting FACTS that are 100% true and backed up with sources is not ignorance.
I'm sorry Ron Paul isn't a good leaders, I'm sorry he has a very poor record. But don't get mad at me about it...get mad at Ron Paul for not
being able to do his job.
