Ron Paul Is Insane
We continue to thank Mike Huckabee, Tom Tancredo, Mike Gravel, Duncan Hunter, John McCain, Ron Paul, John Cox and Fred Thompson (yes, it is true!) for their continued support of the FairTax.
According to Fairtax, Ron Paul does support Fairtax.
If you've never heard of Ron Paul, he's the internet superstar that everyone wants to be the next president in 2008. He's a staunch republican and electing another GOP member is the best decision you'll ever make.
Ron Paul supports a smaller government. Ron Paul was OPPOSED to the Patriot Act and Iraq War, as I'm sure all of you are now. He must be able to see the future, because he was smarter than all of us. Free speech is supported by him, but I'm pretty sure every candidate supports free speech, so that's not much to say. The Mexico border will be completely secured under his watch and he supports kicking them all out. Gun nuts LOVE Ron Paul and he's "the only 2008 presidential candidate to earn Gun Owners of America's (GOA) A+ rating." That's about it though.
He sounds like a great guy, doesn't he? I mean, okay, maybe we went a little wrong with electing a republican last term. Ron Paul is different though. Ron Paul supports the little guy. That's why 99% of his campaign funds came from citizens, and not big corporations. I'm getting sick writing this pro Ron Paul section. I'm going to stop here and elaborate on the state of his sanity. He's also the devil.
One major beef with Ron Paul is the federal income tax. Instead of income taxes once a year, based on how much you earn, he supports raising the National Sales Tax for all of America. He claims to be against raising taxes, but just look at the numbers and how it affects the average citizen. The current sales tax in Chicago is 9%. You get a hamburger at McDonalds, buy a snickers bar at Walmart, you pay 9% in taxes. Ron Paul wants to raise that number to 23%. Who is the primary consumer that this will affect? The middle and poor class. They're the consumers and would have to pay 14% more for everything. The tax is flat for everyone, but should you pay the same tax rate as some guy who makes 6-7 digit figures every year? While everyone else gets in the ass in sales tax, Ron Paul and his buddies don't have to pay a cent in income taxes for their percentage of income they earned that year.
The man is a strong believer of prayer in school. Never mind that church and state bullshit. Funding same-sex adoption? Nope. Gay Marriage? Ron Paul won't stand for that. He supports the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, because as long as he doesn't know you are gay, he'll let you fight and die for a country that won't even let you adopt a kid. For some reason he's against birth citizenship, because he hates the fact that once someone is born here they become a citizen. I mean a baby doesn't even speak the language yet, and he certainly can't vote for Ron Paul in the upcoming election. That baby is worthless to him. He strongly believes that building a giant fence will keep Mexicans out of his yard. The modern era of the 21st century has no way of bypassing walls.
He supports overturning Roe v. Wade, his reasoning being that the Federal government is not authorized to decide such controversies. So in order words, Ron Paul hates the fact that the government allows people to get abortions. Instead, he's now going to use the government to disallow people from getting abortions. Irony is not in Ron Paul's dictionary.
If you thought George Bush hated black people, you've never heard what Ron Paul has to say about them.
"If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be."
Nearly every black person is a criminal.
"Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."
If you don't agree with Ron Paul 100%, you aren't sensible.
"Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty and the end of welfare and affirmative action."
He supports lowering the age to prosecute black youths as adults too.
"black males age 13 who have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such."
Don't worry though, Ron Paul hates all minorities equally, including Jews.
"by far the most powerful lobby in Washington of the bad sort is the Israeli government."
To sum it up, Ron Paul puts Strom Thurmond to shame.
Ron Paul supports quiting NATO. You see, Ron Paul actually believes in the following:
"Under no circumstances should the U.S. again go to war as the result of a resolution that comes from an unelected, foreign body, such as the United Nations."
The United Nations was uhh, pretty against the war actually. That's why half of Europe didn't stupidly jump into Iraq. In fact, Donald Rumsfeld said he hated most of 'old' Europe for not supporting us blindly.
"You're thinking of Europe as Germany and France. I don't," he said. "I think that's old Europe."
New Europe was mostly made of small, insignificant countries, that supported us during the war. Too bad they didn't have much soldiers or supplies to send, but thanks for the moral support. Ron Paul didn't support invading Iraq though. He instead decided we would be better off using Letters of Marque and Reprisal because the terrorists committed "air piracy." That just screams "jackass." It's the equivalent of a poster that says, "Wanted Dead or Alive." I know the man is conservative, but christ, there are more effective methods than relying on the criminal justice system of the old west.
If you saw Sicko recently, you may have felt that the United States needs universal health care. Ron Paul is so against that idea, that he supports 100% free trade of the health market. They can even charge more to profit off of people's health, because they aren't already making enough money. Have fun trying to pay medical bills and the 23% sales tax, while Ron Paul laughs his way to the bank. If nothing convinces you that Ron Paul is the spawn of Satan, explain this:
Do you have a philosophical belief that every American should have health insurance? Have access to health coverage?
Ron Paul's response:
I think you've stated it correctly and they should, but I don't see it as a right.
He suggests that poor people save up if they want to afford to see a doctor. Fuck you, Ron Paul. You're a worthless, hate mongering, son of a bitch, and you didn't have a chance at being elected anyways.
