According to Ron Paul’s definition of a patriot then I am pleased and proud to same I am a patriot. Dr. Paul defines a patriot as: “The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility and out of self interest, for himself, his family AND the future of his country to resist government abuse of power. He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to the state.”
As human beings we all fit the first two categories of self interest for oneself and one’s family. It certainly explains why more people in the autism community aren’t as outraged about the vaccine & environmental destruction of a generation of children. However, to be a real patriot requires the third component. And for the most part we are a nation of SHEEP. Everyone is bitching about voting for the lesser of two evils when it comes to Obama and McCain. Well folks wake up!! Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for EVIL!!
We have an alternative and that is of course, Ron Paul. And don’t tell me he doesn’t have a chance. IF those who continue to say that were to actually get out and vote for the man he would win by a landslide. Write the mans name in if you have to, but vote for REAL change, integrity, constitutionality and the preservation of this once great nation. And wouldn’t that be a trip, if a person won the presidential election based on a write-in vote? Has that ever happened in the history of America?
Does anyone truly believe that Obama or McCain will get us out of the middle east? Hell, McCain already said we would be there another 100 years. Does anyone believe either of them is capable of reversing the economic damage done by the buffoons currently in the white house? Do you honestly believe that we won’t have four more years of the same old bullshit? If you do then you aren’t paying attention to what is going on.
We are headed into a GLOBAL depression. Our banks are folding and the government certainly can’t guarantee anyone’s deposits anymore. If you don’t believe it check THIS site out. It tracks what banks have folded and predicts (with about 90% accuracy) what banks and credit unions are about to fold. Take your money out of the banks and hide it in your house. You would be better off having it in your home then in any bank right now.
I know a lot of people are going to vote for Obama or McCain based on their stance on autism and vaccines. Dr. Paul does NOT believe the federal government has any right in whether or not you vaccinate yourself or your children. Want proof? Then go HERE and scroll about half way down the page. I tell you that you can’t base who you vote for strictly on autism or vaccines or even just one or two other issues (all though McCain is counting on the disability communities vote as well as the women’s vote). There are too many issues besides autism that need to be considered. The medaling of the federal government into our private lives I would rank right up at the top. For a presentation on this issue watch this You Tube Video. Along with this invasion of our privacy add to it the unconstitutional, illegal war in the middle east.
I was opposed to the Iraq war from the get go. Hussein had absolutely nothing to do with the 9/11 bombing and I suspect that the current administration may very well have had a hand in it. Remember how Bush promised after the attack that oil subsidies would be used to rebuild Iraq after the war? It was how he got the American people to back it. The war itself was suppose to be “low” cost. So tell me where are these oil subsidies going (hint: Bush is an OIL man)? This war was and still is all about GREED? (Just like Desert Storm. You know the war led by this moron’s father back in 91?) Nothing more, nothing less. For the list of Bush’s lies and the incontrovertible proof that the son-of-bitch was lying from the beginning go HERE. Either Bush is a fool (that gets my vote) OR he’s just plain stupid (that gets my vote too). Either way he’s dangerous. I can be proud to say that I didn’t vote for him either time. Most people I know who did regret it deeply, and so you should.
Economically we are headed into a GLOBAL depression. The Euro is now starting to lose its value. And is only one of many more to come. We invaded a nation based on lies and unless the AMERICAN people do something and do it quick we are heading into World War III. Think I am exaggerating? Check your history books folks, it’s happened before from 1929 (the stock market fell igniting the great depression) to 1945 (the end of World War II and U.S. involvement of said same). Are we ever going to learn from past mistakes? It doesn’t appear so.
“IF YOU ARE NOT OUTRAGED YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION!!!” I am paying attention, and it is for that reason I am going to the polls and voting for the only person who understands what it means to be an American and has a better handle of how to fix what is broken than the other two nitwits.
