The obsession with Ron Paul continues. You are one scarey dude, every post you make is about one person.

It's funny how your screen name says 'annoy a liberal' and then you say how annoying it is talking to ron paul liberTARIANS, maybe that should be a sign to not try and annoy your opposites. The reason you don't get answers is because you ask ridiculous straw man questions like "how will ron paul defeat the evil corporations" when in fact 1. Ron Paul does not think corporations are evil and 2. He never planned on stopping corporations to begin with.

-Ron Paul will write basically two executive orders: 1. Bring the troops home, and 2. Repeal all unconstitutional EOrders from past administrations.edit on 10-5-2012 by Lord Jules because: (no reason given)
-the "too big to fail banks" will fail as they should. No reason to keep funding corporations that run on a deficit.edit on 10-5-2012 by Lord Jules because: (no reason given)

I think the way he's planning to end war and corruption implies some deep changes that he indeed doesn't talk much about. But I think also that Ron Paul voters aren't dumb and know the wind of change involves a short period of troubles. Like all the troops going back home. Who's gonna pay the soldiers if the middle east isn't plundered anymore? There will be job losses but America will restore itself over the long-term.
There has to be a change. Just look how the whole world is going on. Not just America's prosperity. Its freedom should end where other earthlings freedom begins. There's no respect right now, Villainous acts are justified with a great ROI but what about the world misery it brings forth?
True freedom and peace have their price. And I'm all for it.
EDIT: 'Dictatorship' is an exagerated misleading word if you ask me. It sounds more like you just want to darken the picture with subjective terms.
And BTW look at the corrupted governement: how is this not a hidden but proven dictatorship?

I agree with what you are saying. The way the political system is set up in the United States nothing gets done. Ron Paul will be able to blame congress for his lack of change in his first term. I dont think he will have a second term because he is more likely to die from old age than be assassinated. And yeah,people should remember the tears of joy when Obama was elected. Ron Paul does not deserve a free pass. Most Ron Paul supporters will ignore any criticism of Paul.
Ron Paul is the best of a bad bunch. There is alot to like about Ron Paul. The worst thing about Ron Paul are his cultish lemming supporters.edit on 10-5-2012 by Germanicus because: (no reason given)

i ifnd it facinating that the OP says that Obama doesn't care about the youth...only ron paul does...really...would ron paul have tried to keep the low interest rate on government school loans, in which the republicans in the senate just voted to double? would ron paul have extended parents medical coverage for their kids up to the age of 26, in which the republicans voted against?
this ron paul love fest needs to end, with a deeper examination of the details regarding his implied policies. in other words, the grass is not always greener on the other side.edit on 10-5-2012 by jimmyx because: added info

And as for your comment "forcing his vision around the world".
Ron Paul is a non-interventionist. I don't even know where this idea stems from. Reading his book "The Revolution", he states that he doesn't want anything to do with the politics of other nations around the world and he is also not fond of the UN at all.
And once again, the vision is not being "forced" on anyone. You can only open the cage doors for the prisoners. You can't force them to leave. Let them sleep in the cell the rest of their lives with the world in front of them.

No, he does have plans.
Some things will be able to be carried out by executive order and some things will only be possible if he can garner the support of the House and Senate. But he has plans.
