Yet he wins straw polls on a regular basis. Something odd is going on here, like the MSM claiming Bush wouldn’t win the reelection in 2004, or claiming that Gore had won in 2000.
The Constitution doesn’t talk about Christmas, either.
“What Would a Ron Paul Presidency Really Be Like?”
BWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAA...ok...ok....I can’t breathe....ok....whew, I’m (wipes tears away) ok now....Ron Paul presi...ROFLMAO!!!!!!BBBBBWWWWWAAAAAHHHHHAAAHHHHAAAA!!!!!!!
Of course, based on his latest move, it looks like he would replace it with Ramadan.
I give you an A for effort.
The people are really tired of the status quo. All Ron Paul needs to do is help them realize that he’s the small government answer to that problem. It can and may well work. We have a chance to save the Republic from the globalists. There may not be that many more chances before the nation is something totally different from what our parents handed to us.
Well, since in this scenario, RP magically won the nomination and the election, and is able to put every idea he’s suggested into immediate, full practice, why not also let him wave a magic wand and make them all work perfectly? Since the author apprently lives in NeverNeverland, we may as well take full advantage of it.
This is such an insult to the Americn people, who took care of the old and infirm without any government prodding or help for nearly two hundred years. People, through churches and other organizations pitched in to do what needed to be done then, and they would again.
One of the very worst aspects for the social welfare state is that it has left us unable to even imagne that we, the people, could and once did, solve all our social problems without the government.
ANother very dmaging aspect to helping through the government is that the helped and the helpers are removed from each other. The humanity of each is lost to the other, because of the impersonal, and heavy handed way the government arranges the help.
This aspect of cahrity is the most important part of it, and to be helped without it, or to be forced to help, causes the spiritual good of charity to be lost.
He was merely doing his job as a Congressman. Actually it's a good thing that he earmarked the money for studies, so the public can be more aware of the plan itself. Paul still opposes it and has denounced it publicly.
Not for a 'general highway fund'
Yes it was, as most of the funds would have upgraded existing Texas corridors unrelated to the TTC.
No, I couldn’t. You don’t get to pick and choose which laws to enforce without consequences. It hasn’t worked out too well on our borders has it? Paul isn’t God or anything close to it. He thinks he’s the next Jefferson or Adams and he couldn’t hold their jocks even today with them long buried.
A Ron Paul presidency would be held in check by congress; outlandish ideas would not become law.
He could be a conservative ally on conservative issues advanced by the congress unlike big spender Bush.
The neat thing about Ron Paul is if he was President any bill passed in Congress that had anything in it that wasn’t Constitutional he would veto, and then the passage would fall back on Congress’s head to override his veto, thus allowing all the State voters to see who actually supports anti-Constitutional legislation.
It’s a New York thing, dontcha know. Seany Wahnee is big on New York loyalism.
Uh, the loony 11 % Congress we have now has to be held in check by the President's vetos (now that he's finally found his stones). Putting one's hopes in Congress to keep President Ron Paul in check does not exactly inspire confidence.
LOL! I think a Paul presidency would be the opposite of what you describe in every way possible. It would be an economic boom unlike any in the history of this country.
