I just can't. Look, I understand why so many of you like him so much.....i just can't do it. There are some things that I do like that he stands for...as a previous poster stated.....but there are too many positions I can't support.
I realize everyone likes him because he is principled and continuously states the same things.....but that doesn't mean that I have to support him.
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.

Andrew Jackson.On his deathbed his last words were I killed the banks.He did before they raised their ugly heads again culminating in the ultimate usury to slavery conspiracy,the Fed.
and yet another fine example...so far in this thread it has been claimed that A)if you don't vote for RP, blackwater will get you; B)that if you don't vote for RP you are a crook; that if you don't vote for him, you can't think for yoursel; D)that if you don't vote for him, you are unintelligent....the list keeps going, yet none of you realize that you are being unbelievable hypocrites

Ron Paul is the candidate that determines how much of the population can think for themselves.
He is a barometer.
ALL candidates run on issues. Some are heavily funded. The results of the legitimate polls tell them if the voting public has a collective brain, and how well their money is being spent.
So, a vote for Ron Paul is a vote for intelligent life.

I work at Office Depot. Lots of people from all walks of life come through there and sometimes we'll end up talking about the 2012 Presidential Election. Some say Mitt cause of his speech and his agenda, usually the rich guys will say him. Newt because he is the realest and people need real people and he has a solid plan for more jobs. Usually middle class people will say Newt and others say Santorum, because he is all about the Constitution. I say Ron Paul, you know what most of them say when I say Ron Paul? "Well, I don't know much about Ron Paul.." I then say "Google him, you'll love him." I have yet to run into someone in person that know about Ron Paul or will say they'd vote for him.
All at the same time, most of the people I talk to are older people. I haven't talked to younger people about it. I'm 20 and oldies like to hear what someone like me has to say especially since I'm a future leader. They want to know where the country may be headed.

He won't change a thing. He can't. Until we have change on a systemic level, the preident, as I always say, will continue to be impotent.
