Heaven forbid you mention anyone using a government program and Ron Paul in the same sentence... I mena the man wants to end the fed, and pull all the
troops out, anything else isn't important. People will be suffering and scraggling for years just to eat, and kids that have special needs will be
forced out of school, but it's ok because as one RP supporter on here made it ever so clear to me "If they aren't going to be a viable working
member of society, society has no obligation to teach them squat"
Oh and let's not forget the Dept of Health and Human Services, yes those people that have programs for those who cannot afford insurance, oh heaven
forbid anyone who needs care isn't able to get it.. oh wait, Liberty Liberty Liberty......... so what if hundreds of thousands die because they
can't get drugs or medical care, it's all in the name of liberty.......... As another RP supporter said "Well some people will have problems with
the transition, and I admit some will die, but in the end everyone will be able to afford anything they want, isn't the end result worth it?"
And...... OH LAWDY........... Getting rid of the NOAA, I guess noone gives a crap about the weather, and hurricane warnings, etc.... Let's just
shunt all that onto the states, oh wait.... the states don't own the equipment, nor do they have the training to operate it... What's that coming up
the coast? oh it's just cloudy.... WHAM! Category 4? Well we could have given you a warning, but the Federal Government isn't responsible for the
well being of it's citizens, no not at all, that's all on the states to do.... Emergency services as well? Sorry, you didn't pay your local Fire,
Ambulance and Police fee..... Not our fault that you're gonna die horribly in that fire, or that you just had a heart attack... As yet another RP
supporter stated "That's right, everyone needs to pay for those services, if they can't afford them, they don't deserve them"
GET PAST THE FLUFF.... Yes Ending the Federal Reserve is a good idea... never said it wasn't, where's the replacement? Don't just assume we can go
back to a gold standard overnight and everyone will be fine, we can't. Where's the plan?
Yes bringing our troops home is a good idea, never said it wasn't, however......... should that also mean we give up on assisting our treaty
obligations? and stop defending our allies in Europe or Asia? well silly me, I forgot.... treaties mean nothing, just paper, we dont' have to honor
A very dangerous man, even if for the fact that the states cannot possibly handle the burden that would be placed upon them if he got into office and
shunted all these programs to them, you keep talking about riots and the like here on ATS? Nothing compared to the riots when people can't eat
because their money is suddenly made worthless by this man, with NOTHING VIABLE to replace it in the short term, riots that would make the Arab Spring
look like a picnic..
We don't need to kill everything just to fix the system, there HAS to be a balance, and in my opinion, not one of the candidates (before everyone
just says "you aren't' a patriot, just go vote for murder inc or Obamacare) has given a plan that strikes a balance that would be needed to a) fix
the issues, and b) ensure that people don't starve while you're doing it.. (and no I don't have the answer either, so don't make nasties
demanding i come up with one.)
