2007 Foreign Ron Paul Commentator Predicts Crash, Explains Paul to US
Fascinating forecast and comments @ # 18 by poster at interesting
” I’m not a US citizen. Don’t give a 9…) who wins. Not a fan of Ron Paul. But I’m subscribed to Reddit and you tend to get a lot of Ron Paul news on there, so I might be able to correct some misunderstandings.
Ron Paul believes in a different, much smaller federal government than the United States is used to. It does not matter if he’s pro-life or if he doesn’t believe in evolution or if he isn’t going to mandate country-wide universal healthcare. He has clearly said that these are problems for the states.
Under his rule states themselves would decide to allow or deny abortions. States themselves would decide what to teach in schools. States themselves would take care of healthcare.
Look at Arnold in California, for example. If his current plans work out, almost everyone in California would get healthcare paid for by employers and cigarette smokers. Arnold is also suing the federal government to allow California to set stricter air pollution standards. There’s no need to wait for the federal government.
This, to me, seems like a much better approach. If a religious nut like Huckabee were to become President, he would no doubt force his own religious beliefs into schools all over the country. If you wanted to fight against it, you wouldn’t be able to. Lobbying the federal government is a long, expensive process. Lobbying the state government seems much simpler in comparison. And both businesses and people can always move to another state if need be. Moving to another country is much more difficult.
If you look at all the feasible Republican candidates, Ron Paul seems like the most sensible one. On the Democrat side Obama and Hillary would work too, but they have no chance of winning: a black guy and a woman. Whichever becomes the official candidate will lose. And it’s not going to be Kucinich. A Republican will win. And it’s probably going to be Huckabee. Question is. Do you want a Christian theocracy or a guy who gives power to the states and despite his odd and less odd (but often misinterpreted) beliefs, he wouldn’t force them on others?
Frankly I don’t give a shit. Economically the USA is so (…), even someone as radical as Ron Paul couldn’t hold off the crash.
