Ron Paul's Plan: The Only One That Cuts Debt

On Wednesday night, the group suggested that even under the latest tax plans put forth this week by Romney, a White House run under his watch would see around $2.6 trillion tacked onto its debt toll by 2021. By that same year, estimates that group, a Santorum presidency could cause the debt to go up by around $4.5 trillion and a Gingrich-run America could see upwards of $7 trillion in increased debt.

Under President Ron Paul, the US could see around $2 trillion taken off of future borrowing, explains the group.

This is what works. Common sense, almost too easy. Focus on your own country and homeland interests. At some point, the U.S. has got to get a grasp on the debt. Yes, it looks insurmountable at the moment but you have to start to chip away at some point. At least the US has a candidate ready to initiate this idea.

Taking into account several scenarios of varying risk, Paul repeatedly comes out as the true fiscal conservative in the group’s report. Estimating a low-debt scenario and a high-debt scenario, Paul emerges in all contests as the candidate that would create the least damaging climate, economically speaking, under each politician’s current proposed tax plans. Through eliminating taxes on capital gains and dividends, repealing the estate tax, cutting the federal work force and ending overseas military operations, a Paul presidency is predicted to be the one with the best impact for America’s skyrocketing debt. By ending wars alone, the group estimates that Congressman Paul could cut nearly $900 billion in a best-case scenario. Other initiatives, like privatizing the FAA and TSA, could save America $70 billion during and immediately after his administration.

Let's keep our money in our own pockets to service our own citizens. Enough with the World Police.

Stop paying lawmakers to make more laws. We have enough laws already. I know this because no child born today will live long enough to learn the number of existing laws. (aka every child left behind) ... Nor are the laws required learning in schools.

That would help us save a lot of money, right?

How much tax money is used annually to pay lawmakers? Or is it illegal to know?

Exactly. No more pocket lining. By the way, nice thread on the reality/SCI-FI thing. Just read it this morning and have been fascinated with anagrams for a long time. Scrabble journeyman here.

Thanks for the compliment. I just added a new one for the scientific name for tobacco a couple hours ago. I'll try to put at least a couple up every week.
