I love ron Paul, but will he ever be President?
What you focus on expands my friend.
Keep thinking that way and he never will be.

Ron Paul is why I cannot vote for Ron Paul. The man brings alot to the table however his inability to strike basic compromise invalidates him for me. This is something any truly great politician is expected to do, and he can't do it. I want leaders that can say " I see where your coming from and yes it is a problem, these are my concerns".

Lets campaign for Ron Paul in 2012 through social media! Life is not about money and power or who raises the most campaign money especially when you don't have any, so lets help fix it.

Ron Paul is as they say, too good to be true, its so obvious that he is the Michael Moore of politics. Created by corporations to give us common people a hero in this time of outrage. I fell in love with RP last year and watched every video I could find on the man and in doing so I noticed a few things. I watched him during a debate say that he would not have a problem making all drugs legal, then the commentator asked "The Dr", "you mean to say that you would let Heroin be legal?" RP replied, "sure, I don't have a problem, just because it would be legal doesn't mean that people will do it". I thought the response was candid, and the crowd applauded him. Maybe a week and a half later he was on The Daily Show and JS asked him why in the world did he say that he would legalize Heroin? RP replied, "I NEVER said that". Right then I caught him in a lie, and the pieces started to fit the Michael Moore mold the more I thought about it. He IS from Texas, that should be a red flag first off, if you trust anything from a political standpoint from there then you are much braver than I am. Texas is not Nazi Germany but the last president from there left a bad taste of "terra" in my mouth. The other obvious "hoax" I come to realize is that RP is very simplly "A Politician", its like he's a new model of car from the same factory as the other cars, with better gas mileage.
I do believe this country needs to change, but in a sense that I feel we should have a leader that isn't from politics, that is from the people, I know it is a dangerous thing to say but I simply cannot believe 1 person in our Gov at all, not one. I am not saying I want to start all over, but it seems like there aren't many options left. Go back to no cars, no electricity and live of our lands? If it brings back personal freedoms and keeps chips out of everyones children, then yes. I dare you to read the Declaration of Independence and not cry. I am sorry but I cannot believe Ron Paul is our knight in shining armor when he rides from the same stable as the black knight.
