    First of all, I didn’t support our two illegal wars, and had Bush not taken us into them while cutting taxes for the wealthy,we would be on much solid footing with our social programs. If we got rid of every social program our country would be on the same level as Somalia.

    The cold war spanned from 1947-1991. Saying “50s” is accurate.
    America did nothing to the Soviet Union, didn’t they. Soviet collapsed, not by intervention of the USA, but by internal disputes.
    Actually 2% of the American army donated to Ron Paul, not less than 1%.
    Do you have a link to the letter Ron sent Reagan? And if he did manage to steer the US from invading the USSR he literately saved the country from a nuclear war.

    Continue to support social programs and war. Soon you will be paying $20 a gallon. The federal Government will be 30+ trillion in debt (if it’s still around). Even buying food will be difficult for the average American…all because we didn’t stop spending money we don’t have.

    Wealth is irrelevant. Social security is a good program but it should be individualized you only get what you pay in. You don’t pay in you don’t get any. You pay little in you get little.The system actually wouldn’t be broken if it was done that way.

    Ron Paul never said the wealthy shouldn’t take social security. It is his money he paid in it doesn’t matter if he has a net worth of $2 or $200 billion it’s his.

    Because he has been paying into it for so long. He wants to give youth a chance to opt out (before) they pay into it for 50 years. Ron Paul returned $90,000 last year from his office budget to the treasury. No one else does that. What is a $2000 ssi check when you give $90,000 back. Social Security is NOT for the poor it’s for whoever paid into it. If he paid into it he is entitled to it. He also uses the post office that doesn’t mean he cant try to get rid of it.Well that will fail on it’s own

    Why Does Ron Paul preach against social programs but has no problem taking Social Security even though he’s wealthy enough not to need it? Don’t give me that crap that he paid into and therefor is entitled to it. It’s called standing on principal and leading by example. Ron Paul is a hypocrit who has accomplished absolutly NOTHING in Washington.

    Okay so then answer this for me. Why doesn’t Ron Paul stand on principle and not secure earmaks for himself. Why doesn’t he refuse to take social security giving the facts he’s wealthy enough not to need it? How about showing a little back bone and standing for what you believe in? These are the things that show Ron Paul is just another Capital Hill hypocrite. Preach one thing, do another.

    The soviet Union was the greatest threat in American history. We didn’t fight them and look where we are today. The soviet Union stayed in Afghanistan to long look where they are today.

    The military doesn’t agree with what they are doing. This is why the military Suicide rate has skyrocketed in the last 10 years. They see how their government sends them out to fight someone that WE funded. They see all the innocent lives that were lost in Iraq on both sides.

    It’s good were not more involved it could have resulted in a Nuclear war. War isn’t always the solution. Killing innocent families in the Middle East isn’t going to bring back the people that died on 9-11.

    Talking about R(and) Paul to someone else…I am also paying for stuff in your district that i don’t get to use.If we get rid of the Federal income tax your money will stay in your State.

    Why would we give money to Mubarak he is a ruthless dictator.We funded Saddam,Osama,Ghaddafi and Mubarak.Nothing good came out of giving them aid.He received 180% of what Obama got from the military it doesn’t matter how many. The point his he got almost twice as much. Ron Paul wouldn’t have let the Soviets take over western Europe. If an ally is attacked without provoking the enemy we back them. If they are not are ally who cares what happens to them.

    During the 80s when the Cold War was at its height, Ron Paul was preaching do nothing to the Soviet Union, do nothing to help Europe and he sent a letter to Reagan threatening to leave the party because he didnt like where the country was going. I wasnt talking about the 50s. I was talking when Ron Paul was elected.

    so less than one percent of soldiers donated. Thanks for proving me right that the military stays out of politics.

    Because tax-money gotten from that district is distributed fairly around the country. That’s why it’s fair, they aren’t “stealing” your money.

    The times are different, one form of politics can’t work in all situations. Saying “the Sovijet were bad back in the 50s and because of that Ron Paul would be a bad president.” Doesn’t hold any ground.
    For what it is worth Ron Paul got over 34.000 military donations (not dollars but individual soldiers who donated), while Obama got around 20.000 and Romney less than 5.000.

    Ron Paul would have let the Soviet Union take over Western Europe during the Cold War. Ron Paul has managed to defend every thug criminal tyrant and every other person who wants to destroy America.

    tell me how many soldiers donated to Ron Paul. I am still waiting for you to post than number. As I said, the military largely stays out of politics and the fact you arent posting those numbers should tell you that I am right.

    What is wrong with giving money to Mubarak?

    Ron Paul did not simply want proper procedure. He wanted his libertarian agenda pushed. Procedure is just his excuse to do nothing. Ron Paul defended OBL during a debate.

    We can get rid of the entire military budget and all overseas spending and we are still running a budget deficit. These wars have not ruined our economy. Out of control spending on Social Security, medicare, and medicade have ruined it. That takes over half our budget, not military and overseas spending.

    First of all, Ron Paul is not a senator, he’s a congressman in the House of Representatives, not the Senate. Second, he’s paid to represent the people of his district, not secure earmarks. Third, the federal money that he uses in his district doesn’t all come from his constituents. It comes from MY taxes as well, so basically I’m paying for crap in his district that I don’t get to use. How is that fair?

    Because his job as senator is to represent the people in his district. It doesn’t mean he agrees with it.He is doing what he is getting paid to do. Ron Paul’s district is majority Democrat. The only reason he got elected there is because he is honest and he does his job. This is why i support Ron Paul he follows through with what the people want. The federal government helping farmers in Pakistan grow mangoes is much different than a Senator representing his district.

    I’m not sure. But how does one rail against pork spending but then earmark millions of federal taxpayer dollars for his own district?

    The things you listed total 45.7 million. 3 Trillion blown on Iraq. We give Columbia and Jordan each 500 million in aid. We gave Egypt 1.5 billion a year while Mubarak was in power. Now we give just about 2 billion.

    These things are all within the United States. A commuter rail is not wasteful spending. Local and state Governments are not 20 trill. in debt therefore they can spend more. I would rather pay for a “trails and sidewalks” program in the U.S. than a”trails and sidewalks program”in Iraq. Spending money on clean energy is not waste.I would rather give money to low-income families for daycare than to Mubarak.I would rather pay 11 million for job training than pay to arm rebels backed by Al-Quida.

    Why would there be pictures of someone starving in Detroit. There is homeless people all over. They cannot find jobs because these wars have ruined our economy. People don’t even need to be starving for there to be a problem. Americans need to come first. The U.N. shouldn’t be telling our government what to do.

    Ron Paul voted to get Osama. Clinton had the chance to get Osama twice.Ron Paul simply wanted a proper procedure. The president does not have the authority to go to war on his own. Mitt Romney never voted to cut the military budget. Therefore you do support debt. If the military budget is not cut that equals debt and a decrease in the standard of living for the United States.

    Ron Paul wouldn’t have put Osama in power in the first place.Clinton had the chance to get Osama Bin Laden twice. All i know about military donations is that it’s almost twice the number of Obama. We have no reason to be in Afghanistan Osama is dead.
    We also gave money to Mubarak and Ghadaffi. We gave money to Saddam before we fought him. See a pattern here?…As for military donations Ron Paul received $170 on average from military personal. $170 in a year is not all their income.
