Question for non-RP supporters

Discussion in 'Political Issues' started by beforeobamabans, Mar 23, 2012.

  1. How do you like yet ANOTHER half-ass candidate shoved down your throat by the GOP Establishment? :faint:

    Who are you referring to?

    The only candidate anyone is trying to "shove" down my throat is Ron Paul.

    You may not approve of the other candidates, but remember this about Ron Paul and his strict constitutionalist agenda:

    "Ron Paul has no chance of winning the nomination... and his libertarianism is pure hocus-pocus science fiction, evidenced by the fact that it's never been successfully implemented. Ever.

    But Ron Paul's supporters don't know it. Or, at least, none of them can describe a single instance in history when such a system has prospered without serious consequences and horrendous side-effects."

    If by "establishment" you mean your neighbors voting for somebody other than your favorite I guess you could say they were shoving down your throat.

    Majority rules and it suck when you are in the minority.

    Another home run by CAcop.



    Truth is, I have a fundamental problem with any candidate that thinks any scenario where the government (state or federal) can force an individual into a commercial contract as a condition of citizenship even remotely pass Constitutional muster.

    But, I also believe 5 Trillion more dollars of national debt will break us and the current administration must be voted out as a matter of our national credit/currency survival. Most of us have not experienced a currency collapse but learning from the people that have, it is hard times on steroids.

    Another homerun? Really?

    If our national debt is a symptom, then the false-premise of majority rules is the disease. We are not a Constitutional democracy, and, thus, by becoming a democracy we have abridged any and every Constitutional standard. The majority brought us Obama, brought us to bankruptcy, and will bring us to moral distruction (if we aren't already there). The majority of individuals in this country, regardless of whether they think of themselves as liberal or conservative, believe that they know best how to spend wealth earned by others, and attempt to do so through the coercive arm of the government. In whatever context you may fashion, a majority of Americas is merely a conglomerate of individuals wishing to control every aspect of each other's lives through legislative means.

    Whomever is the next President (including RP) will have no ability to veer this country from starvation if we as a society continue to call thievery welfare. Alas, the likely candidates are not departures from our culture's moral depravity, but are creatures, each and every one of them, of it.

    :rofl:

    that's the stupidest quote i've read in weeks, i almost believe the author must be trolling Rp supporters for comments. that or they're just an idiot

    at least you've found your true home- you'll love the stuff they publish there, they love wasting money on welfare and big government too, so there'll be plenty of ron paul trolling. Home at last JB.

    That's fine, Paulistas. Go ahead and pout. If your guy can't even get the Republican nomination, has never held a statewide office, and has never held an executive position or run anything but a small medical office, how can you believe he'd win the presidency?

    If you believe it's Ronnie Earmarks or otherwise you'll support Obama, you'll guarantee that the next Supreme Court justice Obama nominates in the next four years will give the 5-4 majority to the Natsos as we get another Kagan or Sotomayor (not a Scalia or Roberts). You will lose your Constitutional rights, whether you like it or not.

    Republican primary is still going. People are voting for whom they want. How is someone getting shoved down their throat again?

    I'm not pouting. I'm earnestly watching the downfall of the two party political system and the USC. This was the best and brightest they had to offer?

    If the voters and the Republican party wanted a win and a conservative they would have supported RP and denounced the media's censoring. They don't so they didn't. The message was loud and clear.

    The GOP sealed their own fate.

    Sounds like pouting to me. :dunno: Just because a hypocritical blowhard like Paul, who (as was said of Newt) enriched himself using the system, can't win the nomination, it doesn't mean the nation is lost. I mean, if the dispute between Jefferson and Adams didn't tear the country apart, perhaps there is hope. :whistling:

    The values and tenants of what used to be the GOP and conservatism in general has gone by the wayside.


    Call RP anything you like, his track record speaks of adherence to the USC and conservatives values. Much more so than any other candidate offered. That's not hyperbole, there is every indication that he was shunned by the Republican party because of his values and voting record.

    If it's so stupid, then maybe you wouldn't mind providing an answer?

    Tell us when Ron Paul's so called libertarianism has been successfully tried in this country,
    without any bad side effects?

    If libertarianism is sooooo wonderful and the answer to all our problems,
    then why hasn't it ever been implemented on a national scale?

    After all libertarianism has been around since 1971.
    Why hasn't it caught on?
