Uh....not that I don't agree with you, but how is your position than a Romney suporter saying why would anyone not support Romney. Or an Obama
supporter saying why would anyone not support him?
This one is easy.
What is the difference between Romney and Obama?
We are in deep sh** as a country, what do you think Romney will do if elected to get us out of it?
Obama broke most of the promises he made during his campaign, he continued nearly all policies that got us in this trouble, and made some of his own
policies that scare the crap out of me. Why does he need NDAA (indefinite detention part)? How is it in the best interest of the people? And what will
Obama do in his second term that will help us to get out of this mess?
Romney agrees with Obama that we need NDAA, he agreed with the bailouts. He record of flip flopping shows that he is for sale.
In Romney economic plan on his website, he says things like we need to build more warships, we need more military bases around the world, and that we
need war with Iran. To me it looks like he will create jobs in the military industrial complex, not for average American who is loosing his home. The
same crooks that pushed us over the cliff will be getting more government contracts. He doesn’t explain where the money for more military will come
Can any of Romney supporters explain where the money will come from and how is it going to help us?
Why I support Ron Paul?
His record shows that he has principles and stands by them. Not only did he predict the current crises, he also has a plan to get us on the right
tract. I agree with him on personal freedom and accountability. People should be free to make mistakes and learn from them. People should have the
right to make informed decisions and be ready to deal with the consequences and/or success. The government is for sale, Ron Paul is not!
I agree with him on closing the five agencies he wants to close, and I think we should close even more agencies and allow private sector to take care
of it on a local level. Why should people pay for Department of Education when it obviously doesn’t work? Wouldn’t it be better if the local
communities setup their own Department of Education and vote on its policies?
The only way to get rid of lobbyists is by taking away the product they want to buy. There would be no reason to buy politicians if they had no
control. Local communities know what is best for them, the government doesn’t.
I agree with him on closing the military bases abroad, because we have weapons and technology now that can reach any place on earth within a few
hours, we have the CIA on the ground all over the world, why do we need bases? He wants to merge CIA with military, whats wrong with that, can
Now with all these cuts we can afford social security and medicare. And the young people should be able to opt out of these programs, but understand
that they won’t get the social security payments and medicare if they do.
The war on drugs does not work, people still do drugs even in prisons. If you make it legal they won't need corner drug dealers to get them, and that
will make our neighborhoods safer. There are a lot of alcoholics that die from it, should it be illegal too? We tried that once remember?
Victimless crimes are only bad for the criminal, there are no victims, so why should everybody pay for them to go to jail if they only harm
We live in times when people can do the research and make informed decisions. Harming others is illegal and will be if Ron Paul is President.
Military and defense is not the same thing, ask the troops that support Ron Paul, there are many of them.
Free market will not allow businesses to discriminate and make money at the same time, we don’t need the government for that. If a restaurant won't
serve everybody the same they will go out of business, simple as that.
Stopping foreign aid doesn’t mean people won't make donations. People should have a choice to who they donate their money. We don’t need
government to do it. Remember Haiti earthquake? People donated a lot of money voluntarily.
I can go on and on with things that I agree with Ron Paul, but I’m tired maybe next time.
Does that answer your question?
