    Well let’s see.

    Who will bring the troops home?
    Who will cut the budget by half a trillion first day?
    Who will prevent the million murders a year our government currently performs?
    Who can free me from being accountable to my Creator for all those deaths?
    Who will do their best to get the Patriot Act repealed?
    Who really cares about ME, and truly believes that I own myself, NOT the government?
    Who admits the dollar is now worth less than 2% of what it originally was?
    Who wants to stop the current policy of robbing seniors by keeping interest rates artificially low?
    Who wants to end the War on Drugs and use that money to actually HELP people?

    You don’t need me to tell you to Vote Vertebrate to know which man in the room has the spine.

    Vote Vertebrate – Ron Paul 2012!

    Young voters especially bear in mind that most people CAN vote Ron Paul for president regardless of whether he’s nominated by the republican party or (probably) not.

    Forty-two states permit write-in votes during the presidential election. That is, voters can write-in the name of anyone they please on their ballot for president.

    Voters can write-in the name Ron Paul for instance.

    The only states that do not permit write-in votes are HI, LA, NE, NM, NV, OK, SC, SD .

    “Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms.”
    — Ron Paul

    He will bring my brother home from an Unconstitutional War!

    “to show leadership” is an excellent sentiment.
    The reality is that if we were to:

    Abolish the income tax and replace it with the fairtax,
    Legalize drugs and only criminalize your actions as a result of them like driving drunk.
    Focus on Defense instead of intervention.
    Pay down our debt

    We’d still “show leadership”. And it would be a better leadership than we are showing today.

    “He has no respect for the realities of our position in the world, and the responsibilities of governing, isolationism and bare-bones government may theoretically be great ideas,” Erixon said, “but in the real world we have a duty to the people of this country and the people of the world to ensure a fair playing field and show global leadership,”

    Ron Paul is not an isolationist, he is a non-interventionist. We have a duty to the people of this country to defend our borders, not the borders between Afghanistan and Pakistan. How does nation building and a continued military presence across the globe provide any sort of fair playing field or qualify as leadership? All the other candidates support foreign wars. Ron Paul will bring the troops home and reign in run away government spending.

    Currently we are taking marching orders from NATO and bombing Libya. How’s that for leadership?

  6. Celeste says:

    The youth of this country has the most to lose. Support your future. Support Ron Paul.

    Interesting perspectives, but please don’t leave out his anti-woman position on reproductive rights. He wants to make abortion illegal in all circumstances. He has also aligned himself with the ultra-regressive John Birch Society. Don’t forget–he is also against same-sex marriage. He’s a fossil.
