Ron Paul

Debunking the common myths about republican congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul – PART 1

Myth 1: Ron Paul wants all drugs to be legalized. He wants your kids to start smoking marijuana!!

Ron Paul, constitutionalist as he is, wants  states to regulate drug laws by themselves. We’we got the cannabis issue covered at the  Personal freedom – marijuana section.

Myth 2: Ron Paul will make huge cuts on our national defense!! 

This is completely false. US veteran  Paul wants to pull back our troops from high-cost military facilities and bases in 140 countries. He wants to stop the unnecessary, never-ending wars overseas which are killing our young soldiers and hurting our economy so bad it is pulling us down under huge debths. By cutting this ridiculuos overseas spending on invading countries who are not threats to our country, and building costly military fortifications in places such as Tadzjikistan or the Korea border(where we have like 50 000 troops) we will have more money to effectively spend on our own national defense to make it so strong, so that no country would dare dream to test it.

Ronald Reagan had it right  in the 70’s already:

“Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country.”

Now there’s a quote for ya. And oh yeah, don’t forget that Ron Paul has recieved more money donations from the US active duty military personnel than all of the other candidates including Barack Obama. As a matter of fact, he has recieved more donations from US military personnel than any other presidential candidate in US HISTORY!

The US military have chosen 6-year US veteran Ron Paul as their Commander in chief. We encourage you to do the same.

Dr. Paul’s PRO-AMERICA foreign policy:

* Make securing our borders the top national security priority.

* Avoid long and expensive land wars that bankrupt our country by using constitutional means to capture or kill terrorist leaders who helped attack the U.S. and continue to plot further attacks.

* Guarantee our intelligence community’s efforts are directed toward legitimate threats and not spying on innocent Americans through unconstitutional power grabs like the Patriot Act.

* End the nation-building that is draining troop morale, increasing our debt, and sacrificing lives with no end in sight.

* Follow the Constitution by asking Congress to declare war before one is waged.

* Only send our military into conflict with a clear mission and all the tools they need to complete the job – and then bring them home.

* Ensure our veterans receive the care, benefits, and honors they have earned when they return.

* Revitalize the military for the 21st century by eliminating waste in a trillion-dollar military budget.

* Prevent the TSA from forcing Americans to either be groped or ogled just to travel on an airplane and ultimately abolish the unconstitutional agency.

* Stop taking money from the middle class and the poor to give to rich dictators through foreign aid.

    Ron Paul in my opinion is the best of the worst. But what is keeping me from voting on Ron Paul is solely due to moral objections. I am a liberal and I want the economy to be deregulated and the taxes low but definitely not as low as what libertarians want.

    Libertarians despise redistribution of wealth to the poor. To take one dollar of Bill Gate´s wealth for redistribution to the poor is considered as theft because they believe he created his wealth which therefore makes it his property. Libertarians talk about self ownership, however living in a free society is not actually free, it comes with obligations, moral and necessary obligations. To maintain our free society we expect to be secure. We expect to have access to roads, education, water and other services that can only be supported and distributed on a communal basis.

    Bill Gates did not shit out his wealth, he accumulated his enormous wealth by having access to the “market” and it is the society that constitutes this “market”. Thus are these billions of dollars earned by Gates the direct result of being a member of our society and as such there is an obligation for anyone benefiting from these gains to proportionally support the services that help make them possible. In other words: The money Bill Gates owns is not the result of his work just like the pyramid was not the work of the Pharaoh therefore taxing Gates can not be considered as theft.

    In a capitalistic society, who benefits more from the free society with an educated and healthy population? Everyone, the wealthy by having access to a skilled workforce and of course so do those who work for the entrepreneur. Both benefit each other, so why wouldn’t the wealthy want to pay their share of taxes? This limitation (tax laws) is of course something which society is free to decide upon since they own the market.

    Another crucial notation is that most democratic constitutions agree that all power should emanate from the people.
    In our capitalist societies money equals power. Allowing money to be accumulated in private (corporate) hands on a big scale means to hand over power to a private person. Therefore it should be the duty of any democratic society to introduce rules limiting the amount of money (power) a private person (corporation) may command. Too much power (money) in the hands of private people destroys democracy.

    Sincerely,
    Nad Doumham
