Ron Paul is the only honest one. I don't agree with some of his concepts. Still, it would be fascinating to have someone of principle just one time before I die. So, I'll vote for him if I can. If not, I haven't decided what to do. I'm sure disappointed with Obama. I think Romney would be a better manager so I might not vote at all. If Santorum manages to get it, I'll vote several thousand times for Obama :-)
I suspect what lies ahead is "meet the new boss, same as the old boss" sung in D Minor with the accompanying sounds of a can being kicked down a road. <<In the background, a cat meows softly>>
your reply about the loss of rights was 50 years ago=Irrelevant. Obama's not being a citizen=Irrelevant.
How in the world can requiring documentation to travel be considered "restoring our rights"?Originally Posted by OhIsee.Then
I've already decided that I will vote for Ron Paul or I will not vote. I cannot support a system which is so obviously biased and corrupt. My resounding question at election time is always, at what point does it become patently obvious that the so-called "representative" government we have does not represent us? Less than half of the eligible nation even bothers to vote and roughly one-quarter determines the chief executive. Generally 40% or fewer take the time to vote for congressmen which leaves about one-fifth choosing these politicians. How can anyone conceivably argue that the entire nation is represented by the whims of 20-25% of the nation? How low do these figures need to drop before we admit this farce?Originally Posted by specklebang
I'm not so sure there will be any can kicking. They will certainly attempt to kick the can but I don't think it's gonna be going much further down the road. A toe can only take so much kicking.Originally Posted by specklebang

Not really. The debt hasn't been anywhere near this large because it had always been required to be repaid via real money (i.e. gold). With nothing but empty promises backing the currency today there is nothing to keep confidence in the dollar from being decimated (which is will in due time).
I don't have time to get into this tonight but will certainly dive in more in the future if this thread is still alive and kicking.
