So… you like America?
“The United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts.
But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.
This is legal, but is it legitimate?”
You cannot expect government to solve the problems that it creates.
why try and save people when we could be killing dark skinned people somewhere else?
This would be accurate if a donkey were in the tank as well. The dems and reps have exactly the same foreign policy.
I don’t really understand what it is about Ron Paul that has people in a frenzy. I am not gonna say anything about his proposed policies of anything of that nature, I am just frightened at the devotion he is shown by his supporters. Hearing what people have to say about him and how much they believe in him makes him seem less like a politician and more like the leader of a cult.
I am simply saying this: I have neverseen that kind of devotion to a politician before.
Because he’s the only one that doesn’t just tell us what we want to hear. He’ll actually end the wars, unlike Obama.
Is stopping the slaughter of thousands of innocents not enough to inspire passion in you?

A better solution than Obamacare would be to get government out of healthcare. Nobody was dying in the streets because he was uninsured or broke before Uncle Sam stepped into medicine.
There are still private military contractors murdering people in Iraq under our sponsorship. He also got a Nobel Peace Prize for ramping up the killing in Afghanistan. Not to mention he’s responsible for civilian deaths in Libya, Yemen, and Pakistan.

Again, free markets are the best way to make medicine, even for women, accessible and cheap.
I know it sucks that women get less pay statistically, but you can’t dictate deep rooted societal sexism away. All it leads to is affirmative action where less competent people get hired just because of their genitals. BTW: Ron Paul would also allow anyone to join the military.
This practice of favouritism was part of the reason for the revolutionary war. Government is not there to pick winners. The only way to get the American people the bet products at the best price is to allow supply and demand to do their thing.
And oh god should we end the department of education. How can it be a good thing for the federal government to dictate what we need to know? Allow good teachers to prosper by returning free choice of curriculum, location, and even attendance to the family.
College is expensive because every time the government pumps money into something, the cost goes up and the quality goes down.
Obama keeps pace with Bush in foreign policy\/
In an extended interview, award-winning journalist and activist Allan Nairn looks back over the Obama administration’s foreign policy and national security decisions over the last twelve months. “I think Obama should be remembered as a great man because of the blow he struck against white racism,” Nairn says. “But once he became president…Obama became a murderer and a terrorist, because the US has a machine that spans the globe, that has the capacity to kill, and Obama has kept it set on kill. He could have flipped the switch and turned it off…but he chose not to do so.”
Here’s an article about it\/
Having inherited a war in Afghanistan, the Obama administration nonetheless had choices. Some for instance like Gilles Dorronsoro argued that the very presence of foreign forces was inflaming the conflict and that what was called-for was a scaling-down of military action, focusing and exiting.[xxx] Instead, the Obama team which includes many members of the former Bush regime, decided to fight the “good war” in Afghanistan. During the past five months, the conflict has further escalated and promises to do more of the same.
Another promise broken\/
On January 7, 2011, President Obama signed the 2011 Defense Authorization Bill which places restrictions on the transfer of Guantanamo prisoners to the mainland or to other foreign countries, thus impeding the closure of the detention facility.
As of April 2012, 169 detainees remain at Guantanamo.
btw, could anyone could sauce this pic for me?
Why is that? It makes perfect sense. RP is the only one that will end the slaughter of innocent Muslims overseas.
He’s good on his feet and appears pretty comfortable in his own skin. That’s the elusive quality of emotional intelligence. Are you in balance? Can you relate to others, keep your demons and insecurities under control, and stay out of trouble? Obama gets high marks in this important category.
So just cause he has confidence and swagger he gets your vote? Why not vote according to how well he lived up to his campaign promises or how seriously he took his oath to uphold the constitution? He never closed gitmo, he’s expanded the wars, he has continued the drug war, he legalized assassinations and indefinite detentions, he criminalized protesting near politicians, and he is putting 30,000 drones in our skies.
