Won’t Get Fooled Again (The Ron Paul Revolution)

Brief Overview of Congressman Ron Paul’s Record:

He has never voted to raise taxes.

He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.

He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.

He has never voted to raise congressional pay.

He has never taken a government-paid junket.

He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.

He voted against the Patriot Act.

He voted against regulating the Internet.

He voted against the Iraq war.

He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.

He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

He authored legislation that seeks to define life as beginning at conception, HR 1094.

He is also the prime sponsor of HR 300, which would negate the effect of Roe v Wade by removing the ability of federal courts to interfere with state legislation to protect life. This is a practical, direct approach to ending federal court tyranny which threatens our constitutional republic and has caused the deaths of 45 million of the unborn.

    Whoa, boy. I don’t know about this guy. His extreme positions spell
    A-N-A-R-C-H-Y to me. I agree with some of his policies; things like his stance on the Iraq war, civil liberties, the patriot act, immigration, gun control, global military interference and religious freedoms. However, his stance on things like abortion, drastic tax reform, environmentalism, extreme isolationism, and privatization leave me cold. His policies paint a grim picture of a country that is weakened economically with extreme inequality among classes, increased corporate dominance, a worsening health care crisis and a culture rife with individuals who care only for themselves and not for their fellow man. While he promotes policies that would dramatically decrease government’s influence over its’ citizenry he enthusiastically supports efforts to meddle in the most personal affairs of women by supporting a ban on abortion. He’s perhaps the best candidate the republican party has to offer but I’ve never met a republican candidate that I would vote for and I don’t see Ron Paul as the exception.

    Levi:

    My support for Ron Paul comes down to three main points:

    1. pro-life
    2. get out of Iraq
    3. dismantle the Patriot Act.

    If the Democratic party were open to candidates with a Pro-Life agenda, I’d probably be a Democrat. But abortion is a deal-breaker for me. In my book, the Democratic party sold its soul when it made Pro-Choice an immovable plank on the party platform.

    Abortion is so clearly and self-evidently an abomination and a horror, I can’t get look past it.

    I bet you Korrektivistas own guns and even ammo, read Walker Percy, drink whiskey, eat meat, and have sex with women too. I should have known you were rightwingers.

    You know what the R in Ron Paul stands for?

    Rightwinger!

    I’m going to look into this Johne Dwards person. I am sure that he or she can show me new and different ways to love my fellow man!

    Pretty impressive list and I agree with most items (inflation IS a monetary phenomonon as Milton Freidman used to say) except for The Patriot Act and the Iraq War–both of which I support.

    God bless America, our troops and G.W. Bush.

    You know you’ll miss him.

    I support Romney because of the culture of death issue.

    And yes, if a pro-life socialist were running against a pro-death conservative, I’d vote for Ivan.

    Guiliani is the candidate I’d most want to have a drink with.
