So, it seems that Ron Paul is known as Dr. No for his policies against unauthorized use of tax money. In some ways I agree with him, I do feel that
government should spend far less money than it does, and it should be spent more on our National Defense, infrastructure, and law system.
However, where I differ from him is that I'm not against the government helping people. Because, let's face it, the government is now making enough
money to feed everybody in America. The current budget is $2,6 trillion dollars, which means that there is absolutely no reason to deny people food
stamps who need it. After all, there is only 313 million people in America today.
So I guess the real question is why can't we feed and help people? Well, mostly it's because the politicians are hungry for votes and must grab as
much as they can for their people, and nobody else. I really don't understand this reasoning myself. Or it's the corporate elite putting pressure to
get themselves bailouts or some such damnable thing for them. But I truly don't understand why we're so strapped for cash. We really shouldn't be,
and without the petty bickering of the greedy politicians, we would be able to feed everybody. There simply is no real need for anymore money. It just
needs to be spent in wiser ways and with less waste and keep the greed out of it.
But the real point is, on what specific policies and programs to do you agree with? I would appreciate some details please.
