Agreed, But Ron Paul didn't .
look i get the ron paul thing.
he is a good man.
but he does'nt have a chance at the presidency.
we are not going to turn things around with one man, or one election.
i know it sucks, right?
Its not about a man its about principles and the believe in liberty as your signature states.
However, sadly you are correct about Ron Paul likely not getting elected. Although voting Obama or Romney in 2012 gives us no chance of fixing the
real issues. Simply because the system is not broke for the lobbyist and the special interest groups , just the tax payers.
There is no politics that take place in DC, just business and it would be bad business to spend billions in lobbying each year for 50/50 odds on which
party gets elected.
Few large (Investors/bankers) own the corporations , who own the lobbying industry, who influence$ the GOP and the DNC, who owns congress and the
POTUS, and they own or influence the media companie$ that you get your information from besides the internet (For now).
If its legal for these large Investors/bankers to throw their money around and basically legally for them to own or influence those industries then it
would be very dumb of them to spend billions on 50/50 odds when they don't have to.
It would make business sense to use their Influence$ to lobby congress to legislate on their behave, to use their influence$ in the GOP AND the DNC to
select a candidate they approve of that will basically work for them or with them. Then finally they will use their influence$ on their MEDIA news
sources to tell you who is and who isn't electable.
So sadly you are correct and they have a well greased Impermeable system as long as people still believe that Political ideals win over Money in
Washington or that there are political motives in Washington.
Summary: who ever the DNC or GOP officially selects for you , you should be highly suspicious of. Since its highly probable that they have the same
motives and paychecks (insider trading,kickbacks,donations,..) from the same sponsor$.
IMO That is probably why Republicans act like democrats, because if the (Investors/bankers) own our gov't why wouldn't they want bigger gov't to
control more of our lives.In essence the bigger the gov't the more control they have on the consumer and the more control they have of the market.
