I've been a Ron Paul supporter and he's the only candidate I've ever given money to but at this point, I'm over it
We need a REAL alternative and that means starting a new political party with specific mandates to address the career corruption in Government. That
means strict rules on campaign funds, no "war chests" (left over funds go back to the party to be split among candidates with active campaigns),
consequences for screwing over your contributors once you're in office and TERM LIMITS.
Unfortunately Ron just isn't willing to do what it takes to overcome the corruption built into the current electoral system. He's too worried about
keeping himself just to the right of where he needs to be and holding onto his current office. I'm tired of watching him bail out on all the people
who worked to try and elect him and allowing his delegates to get screwed over by the party establishment.
Where's the lawsuits to challenge all the crap they pull on his supporters every year? Where's the anger and the backbone to stand up and say what
needs to be said without pulling punches?
Where's the willingness to run a 3rd party in the election? I'd honestly rather watch Obama serve another term if that's what it takes to put some
fear into the established political parties with a strong 3rd party race.
Otherwise he and his supporters are just a big joke to them. They know they can play games and bend rules and that eventually Ron will step aside
again just like every other election cycle.
I think the framework of the Ron Paul campaign should be used to create a viable 3rd party and start putting forth candidates who aren't afraid to see
things all the way through, regardless of success or failure. That's the only way we can begin to try and create real change in the current system.
We need young blood, new ideas and people willing to fight. Ron is just too old, too tired and too attached to the current system to create real and
