Not even remotely, not sure what gave you that idea?
I love the world and almost everyone in it (including Americans ) and of course the world and its problems can be fixed, but not by using divisive
tactics and only if people want it to change.
Some leader is never going to solve everyone's problem or relieve you from your awful life or situation, only yourself and others around you can do
People need a little more humanity.
Ron Paul... Santorum and most of these other clowns are NOT going to help in any way, shape or form.
But whatever, keep blasting Americans who truly want to see our country recover from the worst mess it has ever been in.
I haven't blasted Americans?
Just idiots who blindly follow someone like RP no matter what he says or what his past may be, just because he says some "stuff" about the
government and says he want to give you back the power.
Again... gullible springs to mind.
The whole WORLD is in a mess.... the global financial system is screwed... China owns most of the US debt.
If you honestly think RP is going to save you and our country.... then yes, you're deluded.
And this isn't an anti-american stance, just an anti-stupidity one
Can you understand how frustrated that Americans are, that our country is as messed up as it is, though? I know most of the world thinks of us as
spoiled and arrogant. And many of us are and deserve such approbation. But, the majority of us are just sick of how the world and our country in
particular, have become. I once did not question what my government did, in my name, because I thought we were universally members of the set of
"good guys". I no longer believe that. I believe our government, has wrought much havoc and damage in the world,...not through ill will or some
sense of being superior, by our people. But, by the machinations of those in power, who were able to keep us fooled for so long. For that, I as an
American, apologize. We were deluded, as you say.
No one person is going to fix what is wrong here. It's going to take the efforts and toil of hundreds of thousands...maybe millions, of us...to fix
our society, and by extension, stop meddling in other societies. What we need, and probably won't get, to speed that process, is a group of leaders,
not just one, who are more concerned with the good of people, than the game of politics itself, and their own perks.
Ron Paul is by no means perfect. But, he is principled and consistent. America is designed to have the opportunity for peaceful rebellion every couple
of years, through elections. Personally, I think that who is elected President, matters far less than who is elected to the two houses of Congress.
Ron Paul is the guy who happens to stand in a place where it becomes obvious the both the Democrats and the GOP are two sides of the same corrupt
coin. I think of him as more like a narrator, than anything else. Even if he got elected though, he could do nothing substantial without the
cooperation of the Legislature.
Americans seem to me to be waking up to the fact that we are not a two Party system any longer, if indeed we ever were. There is only one political
Party...the Incumbent Party. And whoever made the reference to Big Time Wrestling is right. It doesn't matter if you are rooting for Johnny America
or The Golder Sheik. It doesn't matter who won the bout. At the end of the night, they are both out in some sleazy bar, drinking beer together on our
dollar. It isn't about the "bout". It's about the concessions sales.
Since our ballots do not have a "None of the Above" option, I am voting for Ron Paul...simply because he is the one there right now. I would have
voted for Herman Cain. But, he has been successfully taken out of the equation. I have no idea if it was by his own Party members because they
realized he would be too much of a wild card. Or by the Democrats because they feared him leading too much of the black vote off the Democratic
plantation. But, it really doesn't matter.
The most important votes you will cast this November, are the ones for your Congress-critters. And it is very simple. It is YOUR job to vote out YOUR
Incumbent. No one ELSEcan do that FOR you. It doesn't matter if they have an R or a D after their names. It doesn't matter if you like them. Most
people (as all the Incumbents well know) detest Congress, but think their own guy is doing the best job they can in a bad situation. And they count on
that. But, if everyone who votes...or even just a little more than half of us do, we will be changed forever. If yours has brought home the bacon,
remember that it's stolen bacon. And THEY KNOW it.
