I am not here to tell you which candidate to vote for, but I would like to point out the rhetoric and propaganda that you have used throughout this
Obama is The Food Stamp President and the Keystone Pipeline Job Destroyer!
You have made this statement many times! First thing we have to look at is that the economy was trending downward when Obama took office. Obama
continued the expensive wars and Bush economic policies after he came into office. That is exactly what McCain would have done had he been elected.
So indirectly you are making the case for a different tax/spending structure than what the Republicans put in place, and making the case for ending
all oversees expenditures. Which candidate does that sound like?
The Keystone pipeline is not a black and white issue as you make it seem. Over 60% of the nation was against the pipeline. Add to that the fact that
Nebraska residents overwhelmingly said they were not willing to let the pipeline be run through their state, and you have a very complicated issue.
Let's also not forget that there are a myriad of known/unknown environmental and health issues surrounding the pipeline that have not been answered.
So it would be silly to move forward on a project that has the potential to fail horribly. Kind of like Solyndra!
Also, if we are going to be consistent in our conservative beliefs, why would we allow big government to dictate power over a private venture? Private
companies have to "sell" the idea to all of the people and communities effected. What you are asking the government top do is allow big government to
dictate what a corporation can or cannot do without listening to the will of the people.
So the real question is: Are you actually a conservative?
Ron Pauls position on Iran is adolescent. Of all the candidates Ron Paul stands alone. No one agrees with him.
I agree with him. Many other people do as well. So your argument is false.
When I was in school, it was the immature bullies that picked fights with the smart/quiet kids so they could boost their own self-esteem and look
tough. Apply that same way of thinking to modern politics and it seems that the people cheering to invade or bomb Iran are the numbskull adolescents.
Ron Paul stands alone? Good! I'm glad we actually have a choice that doesn't mirror everyone else on the ticket. What your statement proves is that
Newt, Romney and Santorum are one in the same. No difference between them at all. Sure their delivery is different, but their ideas are the same.
The United States stands with Israel.
Why is that? Do you know why the US stand with Israel so closely? Is it because they have similar interests in economies and political structure? No,
it's because Israel uses their Jewish heritage as a tool against those who do not support Israel, and the US cant be seen as being anti-semetic(sp).
Its because they are Jewish pal. Like it or not, its all about religion. Something out forefathers warned us about.
Lets just go preemptively attack Iran. That's it. No one wants Iran to have a nuclear bomb. The rest of the world would cheer us on if we grabbed the
nukes away from Iran.
No, I believe that the US would have a certain section of the world that would see this as the final straw, our actions would have finally proven to
the world that we are an overly-aggressive bully, and we risk the chance that Russia, China and other nations would respond. We do not have the full
support of the world to intervene in Iran. But we sure do think it's our business to do so, don't we?
Let me close this post by saying that I respect your opinion, and you have the right to express it. I would only suggest that you look into all facts
and historical references that pertain to these issues. You would see that the road we are taking, and the propaganda that people talk is quickly
bringing us to the next "fall of Rome" when the US oversteps its bounds.
You , sir, are speaking propaganda! You are making wild claims that cannot be proven or are not rooted in fact. Be very careful when you regurgitate
talking points and quirky lines from Fox News personalities! You are in effect helping perpetuate the next step towards WW3.
