Anyone else think Ron Paul's great for the world in general?
I wish he was younger so he could have a longer impact on the world and America's military spending.
I think he will make a great leader and President.

I have been in Ron Paul's district until the D's tried to redistrict Ron out of office. He hung in there.

While i don't give any person 100%, I do feel that some of Ron Paul's ideas are good. The Federal, State and Local governments are out of control. The Constitution has been trampled on. Laws on books have increased to a ridicules number. Personally, I feel that the business of Government ought to provide only the basics that can't be or shouldn't be provided by open contract.

I don't believe in using illegal or prescription drugs for pleasure and I know most Libertarians want almost all laws removed. I guess there could be a way to legalize drugs and make them take a class every year, sit in a hospital emergency room Friday night to get a drug user's license.

California has been skirting the marijuana laws for years. Almost a criminal origination at work there. South of the boarder is suffering from the US's addiction to drugs. Might be time to take charge.

Text, talk, drive...CRASH.

Hang up and drive @#$%^^

Yes, all good points.
The money coming into California, from the marijuana sales is a great economic stimulus. (I don't wan't drugs made legal as well, but the amount of money spent on everyday American's for just smoking a substance is wrong. It costs a lot of money to put smokers in prisons)
I want Ron to audit the Federal Reserve, they are the real criminal's.

The fact that FEMA camps are now 75 plus and growing all the time to house American's is worrying. As on the front doors it says if you visit you will not try to help anyone escape? I thought they were to be used to help homeless American's not detain them?

To be honest until a couple years ago I had no clue who Ron Paul was. Here in north west Fl. he doesn't get a great deal of air time. Every election there is one older fella in town that covers his truck in Ron Paul stickers and fills his yard with election stuff. Now and again you might see Paul's name spray painted on a tree or pole along the road. I rather assumed he was some local drunk trying to make get his fifteen minutes.

I do like some of his ideas but in all honesty these are all ideas we have heard before by several trying to gain election.Talk has proven to be cheap and I don't see anything that shows me he is any different.

As for the idea of legalizing drugs I am all for it. I get the whole idea that drugs are bad for you and all that but so are the emissions from my car, so is alcohol, and so are cigarettes just to name a few. To me it just doen't make sence to keep throwing money away to police it when we could be bringing at least a hundred times more by taxing it. Not too mention the jobs it could provide and the fact that it could be cleaned up. But then again the government has been putting more and more chemicals in our tobacco for tens of years now. I would also bet that some murders would go by the way side as I could now buy my crack at the drug store instead of some dark figure hiding in the shadows.

Nice post likelystory and I agree with you on legalizing 100%.

I just wanted to add, the whole "war on drugs" is costly in lives too. I'm not talking about users here, I'm talking about the lives of innocents caught in the crossfire of drug fueled gun battles. Not to mention the lives of police.

Recently a lot of Central/South American countries, and Mexico, spoke out against this war on drugs and the lives that have been lost to it.

It's time to stop it.

Legalizing would help reduce criminal activity in gangs in north American cities and would also be a direct strike against the big drug cartels. It would reduce the number of police, and innocents, killed by this war.

I saw a show about legalization some time back and there was a heroin junkie who said, "Who would you rather meet on the street, a junkie hurting for a fix who's broke, or one who's on his way home from the drug store with his daily allotment"

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to do the math on who's more likely to be dangerous. Add into it all the people now not forced to steal, rob or prostitute themselves to buy more drugs and you have to wonder why so many are against the idea.

Simply put, a legalized, controlled, and taxed drug industry can only benefit the economies of all countries involved. We already know the problem of drug abuse is NEVER going to go away. Anybody who thinks differently is a fool. Prohibition prooved you can't take it away and alcohol is as much a drug as heroin, cocaine, or pot.

Those who say "Legalizing it will cause more addiction" need to take their heads out of their butts and have a look at reality. The same people are going to do drugs, or aren't, regardless of whether it's legal or illegal.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

likelystory and Curt R, Well said guys agree with you both, the amount of American's in prisons for just using drugs is crazy.
The American Govt sold coke it took from drug cartels, to fund wars "Nixon". They have done experiments on the American public for years to study the effects of drugs "LSD". They let drug company's get you addicted to prescription drugs just to reap the taxes off it's people, without caring about side effects.
I have been watching Ron Paul for many years now, trying to figure him out. I will admit it's hard. The fact that he has the same ideals as he did 20 years ago is one plus for him. And he is the only one with any "power" in America who has plans to reduce debt and Govt spending.
To stop America interring with the worlds resources for it's own gain. Many American's are going bankrupt and are homeless while the Govt spends trillions bombing and killing innocents, like Hitler did in world war two. America spends over a trillion a year just to keep it's 100 plus army bases around the world.
Look at the Wall Street protests, the way people were treated and arrested for a peaceful protest.

mrgoodguy:

I respect a citizen's right to disagree with the wars in Iraq and Afganistan (since Bin Laden was killed I personally think it's time to leave) but stating there is a moral equivalency between hitler and the war on terror is lunacy.It is not American foreign policy to indiscriminately bomb civilians. Overall, our miliary has performed magnificently carrying out our policy.

In this republic, you have the right to say anything you want; I have the right to trivalize, maginalize, and ignore you.

America wages war on anyone who has oil, because they need it bad to feed their consumer nation. And they will do anything it takes to get oil. America leaves one war and starts another?

Actually, the U.S. will not let any nation restrict the legal flow of oil i.e. Iraq cannot have Kuwait, Iran cannot close the Straight of Hormuz without getting cruise missiles in their ears, etc.

And what oil are we getting from Iraq or Afganistan? If you knew anything about the oil industry, you'd know the U.S. gets most of their imported oil from North America - mostly from Canada.

I'll say one thing for you: You don't let the facts get in the way of your beliefs.

The money being made from Iraq and Afganistan is not being made by the U.S. and has nothing to do with oil. It is being paid by the U.S. tax payers in the form of multi billion dollar contracts given to a handfull who are very friendly to those in overpaid positions in our government. Both these wars have been nothing more than a giant conflict of intrest within our own government.

Don't get me wrong I have nothing but respect for our troops but those making decisions at the top for many years in my opinion are only looking to line their own pockets and have done a rather good job of it.

Until just now I couldn't put my finger on it but MrGoodguy reminds me of someone I met when I was around 4 or 5 years old in the early '70s. There was a large family that lived a few doors down from my mother and I, my father was overseas on an aircraft carrier. A lot of the neighbors used to say things under their breath about these people but they were never more than nice to us. So when they invited us to this big dinner they were having we went. My mother told me several years later that it was a black panthers meeting. I don't recall what was discussed at this "meeting" but I remember someone that sounded a lot like MrGoodguy.

A blast from the past.

We knew nothing about it. To us it was just a neighbor having a cookout and a large number of people showing up. Mom did not subscribe to their politics. Once there though and you find you're in amongst a lot of people that sound like they have a chemical imbalance and a need to pick a fight you tend not to rock the boat. You eat their potato salad, thank them and go home.

From what I remember the black panthers were not about getting black people in power. They were very much against the Vietnam war and felt that blacks were simply expendable to this country and were being treated that way when it came to the war. I don't recall lobbying for a black president. From what I saw of them I never got the notion that they looked at me from a racist point of view but I was very young then too.
