    New Here

    Hi guys I'm new here and just starting to get into politics. I've watched all the debates and have listened to each Republican closely. I can decide that I support Ron Paul fully. I believe in the Constitution and think that we as Americans are slowly being stripped of our rights. I wanted to see where everyone else stands. I'm sorry if this poll has already been posted. I went back 3 pages and didn't see any poll like this. Who do you support out of the remaining GOP candidates and Obama?

    Here it is:



    Welcome to the forum.

    I'd vote for Paul were he a few years younger and had a reasonable chance of winning.
    I mostly like Romney, but it's hard to pin down exactly where he really stands on the issues. He's quite an accomplished politician, after all, and having multiple stands on issues seems to be the way to get elected.
    Personally, I'm glad that the president doesn't have half of the power that many of the voters seem to think he does.

    Of those choices, Obama. Paul would be my second choice.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I think his foreign policy is great. We need to mind our own business. Cutting Foreign aid would save the US a lot of money. I would rather have smaller government rather than the socialist state were headed towards. He would repeal Obamacare, which I am strongly against. He supports the second amendment and as a gun owner I feel is a strong factor considering Obama and Romney's voting record towards gun control. He would bring the troops home and pull our troops out of every other country. We should not be policing the world especially with our economic crisis going on now. He is the only honest politician in the race. He stands for freedom and isn't a puppet for the large corporations as is Gingrich, Romney and Obama. I don't know about you, but I enjoy freedom and it is slowly being stripped of us. As for Santorum, he is a religious fanatic that would create world war 3. Who do you support and why?

    Nice simple poll. Given your major concern I guess the Ron Paul is your only choice, but to have him be successful you'd have to roll back the calendar quite a few years. Then if you were black you'd be a slave, talk about being stripped of your rights.

    BTW, I was in Mississippi in '68 for about 50 weeks. The blacks were stripped of their rights at that time.

    Why are you talking about issues from many years ago? It is 2012 not the 1960's and 70's. African Americans have the same opportunities as everyone else if not more. And when I say more I am talking about the demographic requirements that have to be met. If you want to talk about issues of race then what about when my dad was taking the test to become a cop in the early 90's when white males had to score a 90% or better and black males only had to score a 60%? That was fair .

    I want to vote for Ron Paul, because I think this country needs to make tough choices to get back on track. All of the other candidates seem to want to put a band-aid over the bullet hole. I see a lot of can kicking going on and that is not going to solve any of our problems now or in the future. I really want our country to be better for the next gen, and I do not feel like we are doing a good job right now.

    That said I don't believe Ron Paul has a chance to win the nomination.
