It’s been too long since we’ve updated, but here’s two TV ads that only Ron Paul could run without being a hypocrite:

Both the Republican and Democrat parties are going in the wrong direction. To SAVE the US entrepreneurial ranking, credit rating, stock market, the $, Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid and the police, fire, k-12 public school, library, military, defense and homeland security budgets while CUTTING government spending, debt and present tax rates without causing inflation or high interest rates; both State and Federal parties would be winners if they would compromise with the following strategies:
Create good paying American jobs with good benefits for American citizens by repealing all sales taxes & replace the lost revenue with an import tax/tariff on imported labor (India) & manufactured goods (Mexico and Communist China & Vietnam). Increase the federal income tax deduction from $5700 (2010) to $15000 for American citizens. Increase the IN state income tax exemption for non-dependent adults from $1000 to $5000, up to $15,000; depending on disabilities and age. All standard deductions and exemptions should be adjusted for inflation. Collect an export tax on natural resources/commodities such as coal, oil, natural gas & grains.
Repeal all wealthy individual, business and new development/construction tax incentives such as tax abatement, tax increment financing, grants, deductions, credits, tax free bonds, earmarks and loopholes that are creating poverty wage American jobs or exporting jobs. OR, require these corporate welfare kings to pay a living wage, minimum wage of $15/hour with good benefits; adjusted for inflation. Collect mandatory impact fees (IN code: 36-7-4-1300, only infrastructure today); but, expand the code to collect impact fees for schools, libraries, parks, police and fire.

I’m a 22 year old from California and my step-mom asked me an interesting question this morning that I wasn’t able to answer. While my parents claim to be libertarians, they are still reluctant to fully back Paul. She was concerned about Paul’s plan to cut government programs in order to restore our economy.
I began by telling her that cutting overseas spending and bringing the troops home would vastly reduce our spending. Hiring contractors to build embassies and military compounds around the world is pointless; it just adds to our debt and puts our soldiers in needless danger (my step-mom had nothing to say to this)
But then she said, “what about cutting the government programs, all those people will be out of work, and getting a job is already hard enough. What will happen to them?” To which I had to ponder. ‘well I suppose it’s their own fault for being part of a program that hurts American citizens’? No, I just couldn’t see Dr. Paul responding like that, so I am posting her question here in hopes that someone who is more informed than I can help her and I understand.
**Regardless of what the answer is, I am a devout Ron Paul supporter and will be voting for him in the Republican Primary.
Ron Paul could win the Nobel Peace Prize if elected according to a recent article in The Hygiology Post (www.hygiologypost.com). The analysis was based upon an approach that is apparently familiar in law : relying on predictable outcome as evidence for intent. Which 2012 Presidential Candidate, if elected to the Presidency, do you believe would be most likely to win the Nobel Peace Prize and why ?
It seems like the internet is becoming more of a breeding ground for quoting some one incorrectly or out of context to drive home an view point. References are usually never cited from the actual source. Infact a lot of the time the person attempting to quote someone has never looked at the original passage themselves. When I look for the actual quote and its orgin on the internet the citation is usually never found. I read a lot of politcal arguements and blogs. Most are not founded on principle. People hear a good quote, choose a political position on various issues and try to make statements with words they think a respected figure in society once said. Sources with direct quotes and their citations can be hard to come by. When making descisons based on polictics it is best to argue on principle and back up your view point with direct and clear statements with references to the root of the quote.
Given the options, I don’t think Ron Paul could have made things any worse. Faint praise I know.
Anyway, here’s something I’ve been playing around with for some time, a Constitutional Amendment through which Politicians and Judges can finally be held truly accountable. It addresses a number of foundational problems by applying the economic principle of profit and loss to our political process. If Politicians stand to lose something (besides and election) they will make better (and fewer) decisions.
I hope you’ll take a few minutes to give it a quick read. Please remember it’s a work in progress. I’m trying to determine if there is any interest in such an idea.
