So I actually went and did some research.
Seriously, that guy is fucking insane. Rest assured that if he gets elected, even less with get done.
Abortion will also likely be illegal, the immigration issue will become extremely violent, and our tax dollars will be generated from somewhere unbeknownst to me.
He would leave abortion up the states. He would end wars and LOWER government spending, so LESS taxes.
I got my info from ronpaul.com. I know they weren’t exactly his words, but they claimed to be his standpoints.
Do you really think that anyone could “end wars” for America? I mean, it sounds great, but good luck getting it done. Have you seen the way this country works?
Don’t listen to any jackanape who thinks Ron Paul is going to swing into office and end wars, hand out joints and fix income inequality. Libertarianism is the ideology of giving in to corporate hostage takers. His lowered taxes involve ending the capital gains tax. In other words, THE RICH GET RICHER, because it’s assumed in libertarian thinking that every rich person worked so hard for the money all by their lonesome and everyone in America starts out on equal footing and has access to the same opportunities. So whether you’re the unexpected daughter of a crack-addicted inner-city single mother or the heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, you’re all born with the same access to the same opportunities and by golly it’s gumption and hard work that brought that heir to a fortune to Harvard business school and he worked his way up from COO to Vice President all by himself. No one can take that away from him and he doesn’t owe the society that made his life possible a red penny!
Ron Paul would end wars? Lets get honest, here. Barack Obama is ending the war in Iraq as we speak. Troops are returning home. I wish we could withdraw troops from everywhere in the world and just worry about what’s going on on our continent and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony, but I realize there’s a little more to military strategy than that. Do I think we should pull out of Afghanistan immediately? I’m leaning toward yes, but I just don’t trust Paul to be the one to do it. How do we know this isn’t the same scam as his marijuana policy? Oh, you all do know what he means when he says “legalize drugs,” right? It’s not like you’re going to be living in some weed wonderland where you can light a joint up at work and blaze through the day like you always dreamed. Paul would hand the reins over to, who else, big business. And what big business do you think is going to be best at marketing smoking goods? The one’s who already do! You want to buy your pot from Philip Morris and R.J. Reynolds, after knowing that they intentionally add toxic additives to and increase nicotine levels in cigarettes to intentionally get people addicted. And in Paul’s libertarian world of no regulation how in the fuck are we ever to know whether the weed we’re buying from these companies is full of similar additives. I guarantee you what you’re smoking now is safer than what these bastards will end up doing to it. Corporate weed, man, can’t you just picture it? And that’s not all, either. Paul wants to put all drugs and indigestible, unpasturaized milk, on the market.
And Paul claims he would “leave abortion and marriage rights up to the states.” I have to call so much bullshit on this one that I actually just took a shit and collected it in a paper bag for future leaving-it-on-your-doorstep-lighting-it-on-fire-ringing-the-bell-and-running-so-that-when-you-open-the-door-and-stomp-it-out-you-get-my-shit-on-your-feet.
Abortion, as is known by anyone with any concept of history, was declared constitutional by the Supreme Court of The United States. It wasn’t legalized by Roe V. Wade, it was declared constitutional. That means the system of checks and balances this country was founded upon has reviewed the subject and declared that liberty is granted to all citizens by the United States constitution. No president can just come swashbuckling in and strike that down, that’s not how the fucking system works, King Paul, you don’t get to make a goddamn decree, the president doesn’t make laws, he OBEYS them. Get it straight, motherfucker, you’re running to work for us, not to run us. And here’s the other thing: While he may claim he wants states to decide on this or that, he has voted in favor of a FEDERAL BAN ON ALLOWING STATES TO LEGALIZE GAY MARRIAGE. Why would a libertarian want to use the federal government in this way, you ask? Is it because he’s a secret bigot who published a racist and homophobic newsletter in the 90’s calling Martin Luther King Day “Hate Whitey Day” after voting against it and equates gay rights to terrorism? Well, he did do that, but I think can be summed up in three words: HE’S A HYPOCRITE!
