Many Americans are buying this whole "change" notion that Ron Paul is about, much like 0bama. Also, similarly to 0bama, this guy has no private sector experience. He doesn't understand how jobs are created, he's never ran a successful corporation, nor does he have much experience with the complexities of our financial and banking industries.

Also Ron Paul is against protectionism and supports the mass outsourcing of American jobs, while the other GOP candidates have at the very least said they are against this and proposed some solutions to fix it.

How can you expect this man to win when he doesn't understand the intricacies of job creation and supports more and more Americans losing their jobs because of corporations outsourcing them to foreign employees willing to work for a few pennies a day?

It's that pesky little thing called the Constitution.

If everyone is tired of using the document...Let's ratify a new one.

Until then, it's my opinion we get back to using the rights our Founders gave us.

Unless you've 'creatively destroyed' hundreds of companies and wrecked thousands of lives - you haven't worked in the "real" economy.

Do you have any other candidate in mind that actually has Presidential experience besides Obama? I don't think you do, but who has the most experience Government wise? Easy Ron Paul since 1976 the last year of the 1776-1976 American Revolution Bicentennial...Goes way beyond what anyone else has to put on the table.

Yeah, and how many jobs has he created through that? 1 secretary and 1 technician at most? Lol. All the while, the other candidates are seasoned veterans of the private sector and experts when it comes to finance, economics, job creation, etc. (Mitt Romney, for example). Not very many people can take a private equity firm (Bain) and turn it into the top prestigious consulting firm in the world. While every doctor who graduated medical school can run their own practice, as it doesn't require much business sense really.

Yeah, but other than that... anyway, Ron Paul isn't your typical pseudo-intellectual, establishment academic who bases all of his "principals" on theory, like pretty much EVERY Progressive Democrat in the history of America, so naturally there will be those that attempt to bring him down because of it. If there is only one reason to vote for Ron Paul, it's because he often uses the phrase "Austrian Economics". The fact that he even makes that distinction makes him far more qualified to deal with our economy than any of these other phonies that we have elected in recent years.

In 1968, Paul and his wife relocated to Texas, where he continued his medical work. Trained in obstetrics and gynecology, Paul then began his own private practice. As a physician, Paul routinely lowered fees or worked for free and refused to accept Medicaid or Medicare payments.[14][15] A 2002 newsletter of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) listed Paul as a member.


en.wikipedia.org...

It is pretty hard to take your claims of the "complexities of our financial and banking industries" seriously when you have so boldly created a thread touting your profound ignorance and laziness. Assuming Dr. Paul has never worked in the private sector without even bothering to fact check reveals a profound ineptitude that cannot possibly be qualified enough to discuss the "complexities of our financial and banking industries".

Further, your absurd focus on "job creation" begs the question; what the hell do you know about the private sector? People do not generally go into business to create jobs. If the need for labor arises because a business was created and succeeded this is good for those who only view their place in the world as an employee, but such a view does not even come close to representing the private sector, and certainly has nothing at all to do with the "complexities of our financial and banking institutions".

You don't want to start your business? You don't have to. You want to be nothing more than an employee for someone else? This is your right, just as it was your right to invite the criticism you will no doubt face over this thread.

If all these other Candidates are such "experts" on economic issues, then why is our economy such a mess?

Your praising Romney's business sense because his company turned a profit, but you miss the big picture. It only turned a profit cause he took smaller companies, broke them apart and sold them piece by piece. There by putting everyone who worked at these smaller companies on the unemployment line.. but it's ok because HIS company turned a profit.

Maybe you should watch this...

Not really. A successful businessman typically has the ambition and leadership skills required to lead a nation to prosperity. Running businesses successfully is very similar to running our country successfully.

Once you realize that America is not a private equity firm then you might see the contrast.

Barf, are you kidding me. Romney was born with a gold spoon. He said screw that silver. His father ran for President and was governor. He was born with millions and like most millionaires turned it into even more millions for himself at the expense of others.

You dismiss normal everyday people with such disdain. Its sick.

So, yeah, I'm betting Romney and Gingrich have a surefire plan to stop outsourcing.
And I'm sure they really really mean it when they say they actually care about American workers, too.


Someone else who has no understanding whatsoever of what Ron Paul is talking about.
He's the single candidate that is candid about how the corrupted system works and that it needs to be completely dismantled.
It is quite humorous to see all these folks fail to pigeonhole him on misunderstood or tangential issues. Not their fault, really. Some folks don't have the capacity to break out of their brainwashing.

But whatevs. When the system fails and the modern state collapses, I'll be in the free market zone away from the starving zombies wondering when their next tiny allotment of soylent green will come.

Obviously, everything RP says is going right over your head. You should try to do some reading on his positions, maybe that would clear some stuff up for you. Here's a good place to get started.

No you miss the important part. He indebted them to the tune of millions, took the money in to his 'general fund' (e.g. Executive Pay) and then tanked the company. The people were husks and the debt was his corn.

If Ron Paul has his way, we will no longer loose jobs to china...

you know how???

by making us china...

without government regulations, that is what we will become...

corporations have the right to pollute our environment, and own slaves because, 'its constitutional'... thats what i get from ron paul and his supporters anyways...

and ron paul also seems to have a reading comprehension problem, as he doesn't appear to really understand the document that he uses as an argument for all of his evil plans...

i do think ron paul would be a master at creating jobs, however, what good is a job, if by the time you buy your food (bread and bologna) you owe your employer money???
