COMMENTARY | A recent article in The Huffington Post outlines 11 ideas that Ron Paul would carry out if elected president. Ron Paul's ideas are all sensible and very beneficial for this country. Much of his ideas are common sense, like bringing our troops home and save trillions of dollars as a result. Fighting multiple wars is not essential; rather, they are impairing our economy.
Fact: Ron Paul received the most military donations of anyone, even more than Obama, because the troops agree with Paul. The Federal Reserve, Paul believes, is not helping at all -- many people, including some of the candidates, are beginning to support his idea of auditing the Fed (and idea he's been preaching for decades). Common sense, by the way, is a major reason why Paul is so popular to the people. Everyone is sick of false politicians, and so Paul is just what the people want.
In a recent video interview, Paul mentions how he can balance the budget in one year. Currently, the divided Congress couldn't balance the budget, as we learned back in July when default was imminent. Basically, if Paul is going to be president, then common-sense Constitutionalism will be used to fix the major mess our idea of prosperity has created. He is turning to word of our founders to help us. This video is the source for many facts in the this article, even though facts about Paul were picked up from numerous places. That is because Paul is consistent, which is another reason why many people want him in office.
Another Paul-related article from The Huffington Post titled, "Ron Paul Can Win," demonstrates how past political movements have made outcomes that happened because of the people's own movements. He cites Winston Churchill's loss over the then-popular Labour Party as an example of the people's choice for prime minister, and how it happened because a political change was determined to happen. Robin Koerner believes that it is also what will happen in 2012 with the presidential election. He encourages his readers not to listen to the idea of "Ron Paul can't win."
The second article encourages the idea that history repeats itself. In fact, it does: America today is drawing dangerous similarities to Ancient Rome. According the to the Time Frame Series, in the edition titled Empires Ascendant, Rome was in an age of chaos once. After a great fire, much of the country's money was spent on glorious palaces and castles. In comparison to today, we have companies on the verge of collapse that spend their bailout money on outrageous parties.
All was chaotic until the ruling of Vespasian, a new kind of emperor. During Vespasian's reign, Rome entered an era of prosperity (69- 79 C.E, to be exact) after the era of chaos resulting from Nero and Caligula. He preferred to be depicted as realistically as possible, as opposed to rulers like Caligula and Nero who enjoyed heroic depictions, demonstrating how down-to-Earth he was.
Ron Paul is our modern day Vespasian, only Vespasian supported imperialism, while Ron Paul wants only to bring the troops home. Considering the time period, imperialism was essential for Rome's wealth, as they acquired treasures from foreign nations like Hispania (now Spain and Portugal) and Gaul (now France). Our methods of imperialism are basically militarism mixed with imperialism, and this method is obsolete and does not benefit America.
Ron Paul is the one who would save America. The biggest threat to the US is the debt and neither obama or romney have any plans to cut the debt. The debt will get even larger and cause even more problems. Both of them also support the Federal Reserve which is destroying the dollar and will continue to print money out of thin air and make the economy even worse.
obama and romney answer to AIPAC and both will attack Iran to stop them from getting a nuke. obama does trash Israel but its rhetoric and to appease part of his base, he still answers to AIPAC and the MIC since they have so much power over the government
So few people dont understand that most of the politicians are corrupt and serve special interests like Wall Street and the MIC. It is a two party dictatorship, both parties wanted Gary Johnson and Jill Stein out of the debates. The dnc convention forced Israel and God into the platform when the majority didn't want it since it was scripted from the start. The rnc replaced Ron Paul's delegates when the majority wanted them in
Both obama and romney also support the War on Drugs which serves special interests like the drug companies and the banks
Ron Paul predicted the recession and financial crash and warned everyone about the threat of bigger government. He is one of the only politicians who doesn't take money from corporations and lobbyists and genuinely cares about America
Ron Paul was right about all the different issues and has been spreading the same message for years.
Ron Paul is the one man who could save the United States because if either obama or romney wins then the USA loses
Do you agree that obama and romney both will make the US worse and Ron Paul could fix the problems?
