Essentially we're in a pretty screwed up situation as it is. You're saying he would make it worse, or just allow for the potential of corruption? You don't think he thought of this possibility?
I'm not sure about his stance on citizens united (i'll need to look into this further), but I know some, like Kucinich are all about getting lobyists and money the # out of politics. It wouldn't be a problem if they could make that happen...edit on 1-2-2012 by v1rtu0s0 because: (no reason given)

Whilst I get your point, it is also something which people have a right to know, especially considering Ron Paul is running for president. If it is not true then hopefully the issue will be quickly explained and brushed aside.

Its sad to watch the American people support Paul, and not realize how destructive his policies truly would be - they would not help the common man.
If you ask me, Ron Paul is the wolf in sheeps clothing - he will make life easier for your corporate masters while making your life harder (unless you earn over $500K a year and own a company). He is exactly what the elites want in office - someone who will remove as many restrictions on business as possible.
The final master stroke was to make it appear as though Paul is being "brushed aside" with all the fake CNN polls and what not, making the American people love him even more. Yup, there sure is a media blackout on Ron Paul
Remember when Obama got elected, people were excited and hopeful so much was going ot be different in his term....but here we are, and if anything Obama has been more Republican than Bush.
Now Paul will get elected, and everyone will cheer and think everything is going to be all right....as whats left of our American freedoms and rights are stripped away by a dictator in disguise.
And its only going to get worse from here on out. Dont fall for it America....but what am I seeing is you already have. Fools.edit on 1-2-2012 by aching_knuckles because: (no reason given)

Removing business regulations is exactly what we need. Are you a business owner?
Taking government out of our lives is exactly what we need, why do you think college tuition is so out of hand?

"According to these messages, Ron Paul has regularly met with many A3P members, even engaging in conference calls with their board of directors. Ron Paul’s racist politics and affiliations are already well known, being viciously anti-immigrant, anti-abortion and against gay marriage — not to mention having authored the racist “Ron Paul Papers” and receiving financial support from other white power groups (pictured with Don Black from [hate-site-nolink])."

First you believe that Media and Government are in bed together yet you're willing to swallow this drivel when Media says, Hey look here is what your new Robin Hood has done now!
Your all being manipulated. Move along, nothing to see here.

So wanting to tighten the reigns on who is allowed to come into the country, being pro-life, and for the rights of the traditional family now makes you a racist??
