I love that he is anti-war....i love that he wants to bring all the troops home....but i believe in SS...I believe in Medicare...i believe in
the federal minimum wage...I believe in Amber Alerts....I believe a united country is a stronger country.
I don't agree with all of his positions either. I disagree with him on selling the Federal Parks land, and I like Newt's immigration policy better,
it is closer to My Own
view on immigration, but....
I don't believe in SS, we already have welfare programs, and private retirement accounts, and historically private investments outperform SS at least
4 to 1, and they take the responsibility out of government's hands, and we all know government is the worst place to let money be managed.
I do believe in some regulations, I don't know if we need a Federal Min Wage, it does create inflation, it does hinder young workers from getting
entry level jobs, etc. A truly free market would set its own minimum wage, but we still need some regulations on work conditions, we can't become
China or Malaysia with mandatory overtime and toxic conditions and suicide nets outside the windows. I trust Paul has the common sense to know where
to draw the line.
Amber Alerts are worthless. They were GREAT for about 2 weeks. It was 2 weeks before I saw the first one in Florida where one parent had the kid,
and it was supposed to be the other parent, and the kid was in no danger, but law enforcement was scrambling like it was a real kidnapping. I
haven't paid attention to another one since then. Once we fix the family issues, and child support issues, and divorce issues, and custody issues,
then MAYBE we can try to set some priorities and create an Amber Alert that will actually work.
But, overall, do you feel Obama would be the best president, even with Paul in the picture?
Personally, I believe the country will enter a deep depression, food lines, and riots before the end of a second Obama term, and I voted FOR Obama the
first time around, but he has done exactly the opposite of the things I heard during his campaign, and he has driven the country into seriously
dangerous territory economically, and too many people are reliant on government checks, when the government is reaching its credit limit every 3 to 6
months and accelerating!! If you look at a graph of the government debt, it is a clearly exponential line, and we are now on the vertical portion lf
the line that extends to infinity. There is no hope of the status quo lasting another 4 years. Even 1 more year is looking less and less likely.
What will the people do when the government checks don't show up, or nobody will cash them?
