It doesn't matter how you vote. Important thing is vote for your heart. Never vote for the lesser of the two evils.

As I can see, more and more voters are seeing that Paul is the real deal to vote for in order to fix the problem facing the country.

If he did become the nominee (3rd party), he might give Obama the toughest go of it tho. The far left might hold their nose on his economic policies and vote for him for his foreign policy - while the far right would hold their noses on his foreign policy and vote for him for his economic policies. Of course they may do the opposite and he would lose big time.

No, it won't. Government spending is not the economy.

If government spending helped the economy, the Soviet Union would not have collapsed. Cuba and North Korea would be successful states.

The government produces no profit. Governement spending comes from your pocket, and puts your grandkids in debt slavery.

If the government cuts taxes by $13 trillion, Americans will have $13 trillion more in their pockets. This is money Americans will spend in the real private sector economy.

Like the Vampire he is, RP has dthem hypnotized like a spider does a fly. I loved how he said he was going to check out the links to see how intelligent the authors are. If that doesnt tell you how he not only drank the kool aid, he drank half the jug, I dont know what will.

I think people much smarter than us would disagree on the bailouts. We'll never know for sure but a worldwide depression that most economists predicted could have caused a calamity that would have lasted decades. Rather than complain about the bailouts, the answer is to never let us get into that predicament again. That's where the GOP is failing IMO. That is also where I disagree with Paul. Unbridled free market does not work. No, that doesn't make me a Socialist - there is a happy medium between no regulations and over regulations.
People much smarter than us? You mean like the financial experts who 5 years ago told us we didn't have a housing problem? Ron Paul has been predicting this crisis for over ten years. He just about gave a date on it, when it would occur, and why. That speech is linked earlier in this thread.

As far as a unbridled free market. You know nothing about it. There hasn't been one for as long as any of us have been alive. Government interferes with the market, creates false monopolies, limits competition, subsidizes failing companies, props up prices in markets that can handle it while it holds other markets lower, and then it cries foul when things get out of whack.

What you are seeing today, this entire freaking mess, is a direct result of gov't intervention into a free market. See, that's the thing about a free market. It will work, if it's free. But when there are outside influences that screw it up, it all goes to hell. The ironic part, is when it goes to hell, we blame the free market, and not the gov't influences that cause the failure.

You can bet your last dollar...if we didn't have privatized profits and socialized losses, a lot of our big companies would act very differently.

Ron Paul wasn't the only one that predicted the collapse. If fact, many others, including Paul Krugman also predicted it but for different reasons that were sometimes the opposite of RP's reasons. So we can argue forever about who was right but I admit that Krugman and Ron Paul both know a lot more about the economy than me - and maybe you too. I also believe that Krugman knows a lot more than RP about the economy just like I believe RP would know a lot more than Krugman about how to deliver babies.

What I do assume from past experience, is that when BP was in bed with regulators instead of controlled by them, they damn near ruined the entire Gulf of Mexico, and if they are not regulated now, they would do it again. Completely unbridled free market may be good for corporations in the shot term but they are not good for people. Corporations only goal is to increase the bottom line. This is dangerous to humans and the earth we need. RP says that corporations would do right or they wouldn't survive. That makes sense if you are talking about a retail store, but not a major Corporation that is not being regulated.

Totally agree but they would still need to be regulated. You see, I do agree with RP on many things but I vehemently disagree with him on some other very important issues.
