I respect Ron Paul for standing on principles. I respect Ron Paul for respecting others’ rights to make their own decisions, which is the tenets of libertarianism, I think. However his Libertarian thinking only works in a society where people behave themselves and not engage in actions that cause lethal harm to innocent people.
Our society and the world is not such a place, never will be.
As a leader of the Nation and of the free world, one of the solemn responsibilities is to protect the citizens from harm, and to take a stand to prevent evil from expanding its power. If evil reigns in a region, evil will eventually reign the world if not stopped. Are we not teachable by history? Hitler and the Japanese brutal aggression all over Asia?
Ron Paul sponsors a bill to ban federal law against Marijuana use and leave the decision on States. His foreign policy is non-involvement.
I respect Paul supporters’ right to their ideological allegiance and your right to vote for him in the primary. I just wish that if Paul were not the republican nominee, you would think hard not to give Obama another term by writing Paul in or putting him on the third ticket, which will certainly split the votes from the non-Obama voters. Study the numbers before you make your decision. Numbers do tell reality.
Obama is turning our country upside down by his incompetence, socialistic agenda, big government bureaucracy, favoritism to his benefactors, antagonism against any who do not support his agenda, usurpation of power, etc. What can we expect in the next four years of Obama administration?
There is no perfect or ideal candidate, including Dr Paul. In the end, you must make the right choice if it means between Obama or any republican.
