I’m going to first start off by saying this is not an attack, just my thoughts and opinions. I’m not sure if Ron Paul is a racist like many people claim he is, maybe I’m not seeing it, if he has supporters being racist doesn’t automatically make him a racist, and the things I’ve seen on him being racist, well some just aren’t reliable websites and/or the videos are edited very cleverly and maybe we aren’t getting the full view of his ideas. Or maybe I’m just being naive. None the less, if anyone wants to drop me comments or videos, debunking that he is a racist and or showing concrete proof of him being a racist, feel free to hit me with them so I can be the judge for myself, I think I’ve seen quite enough but I’m sure there is a million things I haven’t seen or read.

So anyway, back to my issues with him. Call it nit picking or not, but well he is the “Constitutional” presidential hopeful by many of you. His campaign is basically restoring the constitution, which you couldn’t ask for more. It is the gift of life. But my first thorn in my spine about that is… Voting against impeaching Dick Cheney. That just blows my mind coming from a constitutionalist. And I also believe that the constitution is just about everything, but sometimes there are some things missing in the constitution that should be a given right, but thats a whole other topic.

Second, the 9/11 issue, If his campaign is that strong, than we should not be worried about him having the balls to say he is for independent investigations. Kucinich said he would, and although he isn’t all that great in the polls like Ron Paul is, they also don’t ever mention that Kucinich is a 9/11 conspiracy nut. I don’t think it would be his main focus throughout his campaign if he stick to what he has been preaching. That all being if he is lying that he doesn’t think that 9/11 was a cover up and that it is “preposterous”. But if he is lying, then what else may he be lying about just to gain support. Not saying he is, but you always have to keep your eyes peeled, even on your own guy. And I hope that if he isn’t lying that his supporters would be right there protesting him about it or bombarding him with facts just like we do with everyone else that calls people that don’t believe the “official” 9/11 story a lie, kooks. Regardless if he is doing a good job everything else, 9/11 comes before anyone, in my mind. You have to keep your own guy in check sometimes too.

A few other issues I have with him are his views on net neutrality. He voted NO to a nationwide Amber Alert which is a real big deal to me, I couldn’t imagine why he would do that. He supports a Constitutional Amendment for school prayer. Voted YES on banning gay adoptions in DC.

I don’t believe we need to eliminate the Department of Education, I think reform is much more of a necessity. I believe all students should have vouchers attached to them to secure (1) to make sure they are happy with the education they are receiving (2) make teachers actually care to do a good job, because I know most teachers only care about getting that check at the end of the week (most, not all) and (3) competition.

This is where I’m going to get shit from…. maybe its nice in your neck of the woods, but not all that peachy in my area. I am all for the second amendment and oppose any ban on hand guns, but I do believe it shouldn’t be that easy to get a gun. Maybe the majority out there are responsible people but you have to admit, there are some sick bastards out there that we need to keep guns out their hands.

The abortion thing, ehhh, its really a matter of opinion and which way you look at it, I mean, neither side can be wrong on that issue. My personal beliefs is that if someone was raped, they should be allowed to have an abortion. I believe it is a woman’s right to choose. But that is just a matter of opinion to me. So I won’t argue on that one. To each their own.

Another thing, I have to look at it a little more but, I know he voted NO on banning physician-assisted suicide. (Huh?) Anyone want to explain that one to me? And as for his health care plan, I don’t think anyone can compete with Dennis Kucinich’s not for profit universal health care system. Find me where it has been flawed anywhere other than Canada and where else was it… the U.K. I believe? But a Health care for all should just be a right. Everyone deserves that treatment. No one left behind. No one turned away.

As for immigration… well, I do believe we need more secure borders, I don’t believe we need to be building a fence around our country, that is just ridiculous. No amnesty perhaps would be a good idea but I do believe that people immigrants without citizenship live in fear being that we have a horrible process for immigrants to gain their citizenship. If he is willing to fix that process then I believe we wouldn’t be in fear of people “taking our jobs” which I think is a ridiculous thought, as well being that the jobs they are taking are the worse of the worse, low paying jobs, I’m in construction and have no fear of someone taking my job, when you know Mexicans are waiting out there in the bitter cold everytime I go to Home Depot, begging for work for low prices, those are troopers if you ask me, and I have respect for their hard working ethics for low wages. They are just happy to work. You want to know where the jobs are being lost? It is when we are outsourcing all our work to every other country in the world.

I saw in his interview, with Glen Beck, that he said the American people have to take on the responsibility to help homeless people and it should not be the problem of the Federal Government, but I honestly can say, although I know there are many people in this country that are willing to help out less fortunate people, but sometimes people forget about them too, or some people just don’t give a fuck and can’t fathom the idea that these people had a streak of bad luck. If anyone knows about that streak of bad luck its me, I was never lazy nor was not willing to work, I think I’ve been working since who knows… I’ve had a paper route at 7 years old and worked from age 12 and up and shit was never working out regardless. Some people just don’t have that kind of luck and I don’t believe that all people would be willing to take on the responsibility to help each other. Government should play a role into helping people get back on their feet. Their should be no reason someone sleeps in a cardboard box. So the process of gaining citizenship needs to be fixed and all should be welcomed here, because the Statue of Liberty says so.

And as much as I agree that the Federal Reserve must be done away with, I worry sometimes about that thought too. But I won’t get into that too much because his plans for the Fed, IRS and Income Tax are my cup of tea. I’d much rather take the gamble and eliminate them and see if it works out like I believe it will. I just know that eventually if Ron Paul does because president and all this turns out, eventually he won’t be president anymore in 4 or 8 years. Then what?

Well… thats all I can really come up with at the time being but if there is more I’ll post a part 2. I’d like to hear any rebuttals. Other than that I like Ron Paul and most of his views as well, but those views I listed above are very important to me. My guy is still Kucinich, although he isn’t doing as well as I hoped, would have been great if Kucinich and Paul supporters backed each other up through the whole campaign this way we’d have a better shot at victory when the time comes, but some people, ehh, well you know.

I have a list of things that I don’t like about him but not as big of a list, plus I just thought I’d do one on Ron Paul being that the majority of my friends list are Ron Paul supporters. So hit me back with your thoughts. Thanks for reading. Please try to keep the fighting to a minimum in your comments. We are all human and entitled to our own beliefs, Respectful debate comes along way, especially to bring us all together. Lets not resort to Fox News/Bill O’Reilly tactics.

P.S. Any information you want to drop on your candidate is more than welcome, try to make it reliable sources. I have to do a little more research on why he voted on certain things as well, because the context does matter as well as just saying why someone voted for this or that. But in the end, we better not have a Hillary, Obama, Edwards, Giuliani, Romney or Huckabee coming out victorious. Lets do our best with Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul. Even if you don’t like everything about their ideas, no one is perfect and at least they are blunt and sincere and listen to the people. That should count for something. This year the people, you and I are the “deciders”. And when it all comes down to it, best of luck to both candidates, and to you. And if the time comes that either Kucinich or Ron Paul do become president, I hope you won’t cut them slack if they fail to do their jobs right, we’ve failed for the past 8 years, we better not let it happen again and be all over their asses just as we would do against anyone else. We have it in us. This is about the people. So we must work together as “We the People”

  3. paul is for free trade, but against the free trade “agreements” like NAFTA and international organizations like the WTO, which is corporatism on a global scale.

    paul voted for the bankruptcy bill because he believes that all contracts should be honored; most importantly, the social contract on which our country was founded.

    he is against the *federal* minimum wage because he believes all decisions of this type should be made at the local level.

    paul has always voted against subsidies *period* he does not support corporate welfare. i’m not sure where you got this. he has said on numerous occasions that if we weren’t subsidizing the oil companies we wouldn’t have this addiction to cheap oil and market demand for alternative energies probably would have climbed dramatically by now.

    paul doesn’t support deregulation across the board. just at the national level. the states, which are closer to the needs of the various community interests, and more responsive to popular demands, should decide how businesses should be regulated. paul *does* believe that voluntary private enterprises do generally work better than government coercion, but he is a strict constitutionalist and does not believe in implementing his personal beliefs on a national scale. he would probably vote against a lot of the big spending bills that are bankrupting this country, on the other hand, but the goal would be to keep this money within the states (so it cannot be used to wage endless wars).

    as for support of the missile defense system, the key word here is *defense*. i have no problem with this kind of technology, as long as it is used to ward off attacks rather than attacking other countries.

  4. Are you aware Paul voted for the bankruptcy bill? Are you aware Paul is for free trade and against the minimum wage? You say you want Kucinich not for profit health care system but you also support Paul getting rid of the income tax. You can’t pay for single payer health care without the income tax on corporate profits. Are you aware Paul supports subsidies for the oil companies and oil drilling? Are you aware Paul supports deregulation and privatization? Are you aware Paul supports the missile defense system in the US? Most importantly, are you aware Paul opposes Democracy?
