The Republican debates look more and more like encounters between one adult Ron Paul a and spoiled children. A case in point is Michelle Bachmann’s denial of reality. Michelle wants America to attack Iran even if it means risking WW III. My response: “Iran has not attacked anyone in 200 years. Can you name the countries where America has troops killing people?”
Iran has no nuclear weapons program. We can no longer afford these multi-trillion dollar wars and occupations. 43 cents of every dollar we spend is borrowed or rather just printed by Ben Bernanke. The US currency is growing at 29% per year so it might not be long before prices are increasing 25% or more. Maybe even shortly before or after election day. We have to bring our troops home and to cut our expenses. We can no longer act like a playground bully on a spending spree with the other children’s money.
Someone needs to ask these juvenile presidential candidates if they know what a fuel air explosive is. Iran has enough missiles with fuel air explosive warheads to take out every American military base in the US Central Command. Iran has enough Russian made anti-ship missiles to sink our entire Persian Gulf fleet in minutes. There is no reason to attack Iran if they do not attack us first.
Does any candidate other than Ron Paul sufficient credibility to be believed when it comes to saying No to corruption on Wall Street? In the MF Global bankruptcy case the Department of Justice has refused to arrest Jon Corzine for theft and ordered the unsecured creditor JP Morgan to return 1.2 billion dollars to the customers whose accounts were looted. An adult voter should be concerned that all the other candidates for President do not seem to care that the voters and taxpayers are asked to pay taxes to support wild gambling binges by Wall Street.
Ron Paul’s problem is that as an adult he appeals to adult voters. He will need the help of the adults in the room to explain to the older children what is happening in terms they can understand.
Tell the children the big five banks have 250 trillion dollars in Credit Default Swaps. CDS are nothing more than bets on the future value of bonds and commodities. Those CDS are guaranteed by your bank account, by the taxes taken out of your paycheck and by the money set aside to pay your pension. Why would you vote for any candidate who is not an adult and has not learned to say No to bullies? Ron Paul is the only candidate from either party that wants to end the Federal Reserve even though it has systematically looted America for nearly 100 years.
Ron Paul is the only candidate who will not torture you. He is the only candidate who will not molest women and young girls at airports, at shopping malls and sporting events. Yes, children. The TSA is going on the road and searching cars at roadblocks. They were even at the Super Bowl and are starting to move towards shopping malls. Ask the older children if they want a TSA agent to put his hands inside your underwear to grab hold of your genitals because you needed to buy a new pair of shoes or a jacket at the mall? As an adult, you must tell the older children that letting a pervert publicly molest and humiliate you is always wrong and will never make you safe.
Has any of the candidates in either the Republican or Democratic party other than Ron Paul put forward a workable plan to balance the budget? Again. The other candidates are not willing to say NO and to cut spending a trillion dollars a year. To a child you might ask why would you vote for a candidate who has no plan to save your country from certain oblivion? It is past time we demanded politicians offer plans that can actually work.
We need to drive this point home: Ron Paul is the only adult running for President. These times are too perilous to entrust the fate of the world to children.
