A lot is on the line for Iowa today given all the negativity towards Ron Paul. The Republican Party as a whole doesn’t want Ron Paul and the Governor of Iowa recently stated that if Ron Paul gets the Iowa nod that it will invalidate the election process, as far as I’m concerned his statement has already invalidated the election process in Iowa.
With the recent rise of Santorum there is talk about Iowan’s splitting their votes between Santorum and Romney just to ensure that Ron Paul won’t be number one but isn’t that a bit hypocritical of them saying that Ron Paul isn’t electable but Santorum is? Santorum doesn’t have a prayer of winning the country but yet Iowan’s are endorsing him.
I believe the election process has been invalid for many years now and if Obama makes a 2nd term or we elect another “business as usual” politician, I will never vote again. In other words, Ron Paul is the only candidate who is honest and will make the tough choices necessary to bring this country back and if he doesn’t win then all hope for this country is lost.
I agree with Ron Paul that every sovereign country has the right to develop any kind of weapon they chose, but he knows that Iran isn’t even close to having a nuke so why interfere at this point, let’s wait until they get close and then deal with it based on the intel of their motives.
In removing all foreign aid, isn’t that what we’ve all wanted anyway? It isn’t anti Israel, it’s a chance to start over in deciding who’s worthy of our aid and that in turn will eliminate countries who are not our friends and not Israel’s friends and will lessen those countries opportunities to get weapons, at our expense, to use against Israel.
People need to get their head out of their assess and the asses of the Republican masses and media and stop taking what they say at face value, look at the overall picture and do your own research and analysis. Ask yourself what your main concern is and I’ll bet it isn’t whether or not Iran develops a nuke sometime in the far future. Do you even want to take this country back or are you content to leave it politics as usual? Are you content with the Patriot Act and the newly passed and signed National Defense Act where the govt can use the military to detain American citizens without trial? Ron Paul is the only candidate who will get rid of those.
Do you value your right to worship as you choose?
Do you value your right to free speech without the govt spying on every word you say?
Do you value your right to bear arms?
Do you value your right to life, liberty and property?
Do you value your right not to be strip searched at airports, train and bus stations and malls?
Do you value your right to not be detained without trial?
Do you value States Rights?
Do you value your civil liberties granted to us by our Creator?
DO THE RIGHT THING TO GET OUR COUNTRY BACK!
