The man has alot of good talking points but his policies dont work.

He is the type of person who would be very interesting to talk with becuase he brings alot of great ideas to the table but overall i personaly could never vote for him.

ahhh a dissenter. Thank you for your reply though. \:\(

Chris? Quick question? Have you ever had a job yet? Just curious if you ever looked at a pay-check stub and noticed how much your own money that they don't allow you to keep.

Oh, and I'll tell you this: There WILL be some replies here that applaud what Dr. Paul has to say as well, and you'll notice that MOST of them are older than you. I'm not saying you have to be old to be wise though \:\)

One last thing Chris?

I would suggest that Dr. Paul's policies are exactly what got us through the first 120 years of our country.......and made us the greatest country on this planet, until the advent of the Spanish American War, (our first interventionist war) and all it's unintended consequences, but I won't go there.

Ron Paul sounds nice, but the problem I see is that, if he's elected, he'll be put in charge of a country that has made promises to other countries, promises that ought to be considered binding. It's all well and good to say "I'll make the US more introverted and less interventionist", but the fact is we've got obligations, like them or not - and simply breaking promises will not be good for us, long term. If Mr. Paul becomes president, I hope he'll understand the responsibility.

What promises? The promise to defend Japan? The promise to defend South Korea? The promise to defend Isreal? The promise to defend Western Europe? The promise to..........NO MORE PROMISES \:\)

Right...we've overextended ourselves, certainly; but unless the other countries we've treatised say it's OK, we can't just break deals. That would be bad. Bad U.S.!

Then I say get him in office, and have him fulfill those deals. Then they will be all said and done. We really a constitutionalist. Paul is the guy. I personally do not feel we've had a good president since Andrew Jackson.

Yes, I know. Can open.....worms everywhere.....

Well, he seem to have ability to speak what is the 'popular' thing to say. That make him a politician I guess.

Indeed. If he's good, that's great - but I'm wary of all politicians. Especially the ones that claim to be different from all the others.

In 2001, I was vocally quite opposed to our invasion of Iraq (whether there were WMD's there or not). The reasons I was opposed are exactly the reasons we are facing today. I knew it wouldn't be a cakewalk, and I knew that American resolve is only strong as long as Americans can remained convinced that the right decision was made. So, I knew that we would eventually end up pulling out before the job was done, and that leaves me in an impossible situation. Since I didn't want to go to war in Iraq because I was afraid of what would happen if we gave up before the war was done, what possible solution can I come up with to fix this grave error? In all honesty, I don't see a way out.

At the same time, I supported, and still support, the invasion of Afghanistan.

So that leads me to believe that even though Ron Paul puts a perspective that is needed on this issue, I do not think he is the right man for the job of being president. I also noticed that the last time the Republican party invoked a tax cut, I wasn't effected in the slightest.

So, in essence, I don't really trust any politician. I especially don't trust any Republicans.

To me, the biggest issue is his stance on religion. Is he a secularist? If he's not, I won't even remotely consider giving him my vote.
