We are currently more concerned with taxation and the economy and fluff issues such as gay marriage and immigration, that we are not concentrating on the biggest issue of all, which is our individual liberties.
Mitt Romney’s ‘running mate’ Paul Ryan voted for the NDAA act, multiple bailouts and to extend the patriot act. That doesn’t sound like much of a liberty loving patriot to me. As for his budget, it is a mere drop in the ocean as to what we face and need to do to reign in the horrifically ballooned deficit. A 30 year program? That’s pathetic. Is that the best we can throw at the democrats?
As for the republic ticket thus far, giving them ‘red meat’ is not going to work. Republicans are historically only elected when the appeal to both sides of the isle.
Ron Paul’s message would appeal to both sides because he wants to bring the troops home (which the democrats like) and cut the budget by 1 trillion year one (which the republicans would love).
If you truly want the republicans to win, it has to be Ron Paul. Even if Mitt Romney’s plan (does he even have one?) boosts the economy, do realize that you are not voting for liberty. None of the candidates but Ron Paul have any interest in your liberties.
There are so many issues created to keep us divided, that we only concentrate on the one thing that immediately effects us all, and that is the economy. We are distracted by that, all the while the politicians are stripping away our freedoms one by one. We still have a chance to elect a libertarian candidate to the GOP ticket, who will restore liberties. Ron Paul would not only restore the economy, but restore the freedoms that protect our lives.
Economies boom and bust all the time, but they can be rebuilt. If we lose our liberties, there will be nothing left to rebuild from. So the most important question to ask is, which is more important? The economy or your life?
