It is more than one year since the American people selected Barack Obama as their leader, and with each passing day it is becoming increasingly clear why the American people should have elected Ron Paul instead. The U.S. economy continues to collapse, the U.S. government is running up a record budget deficit, our borders are wide open, hatred for the United States is at an all-time high around the world and our individual liberties continue to be eroded as never before. The American people are becoming increasingly frustrated by the socialist big-government solutions that the Obama administration and the Democrats are coming up with. But the truth is that both the Republicans and the Democrats have been advocating bigger government, more spending, more debt and more globalism for years, and now we find ourselves on the edge of complete disaster.
It looks like Ron Paul was right after all.
The following are 10 reasons why America should have elected Ron Paul instead of Barack Obama….
#1) The U.S. Economy
Ron Paul has been saying for years that if we continued to run our economy on runaway government spending, endless amounts of debt and the insanity of letting the Federal Reserve control our currency then eventually the United States economy would crash.
Did that not happen?
But neither political party is seeking to end this orgy of debt. Instead both of the major parties pushed the “Wall Street bailouts” down the throats of the American people and both political parties have continually voted to spend even more money.
But the American people didn’t want to listen a true fiscal conservative like Ron Paul. Now we are paying the price.
#2) Health Care
The socialist “health care reform” bill that has been rushed through Congress is one of the most insidious pieces of legislation that this nation has ever seen. Ron Paul has been viciously attacked for fighting against it, but he has refused to back down. In fact, he has shown extreme courage by battling to stop a bill that would virtually destroy the health care system in the United States. The truth is that the health care bill is so bad that one poll revealed that 45 percent of America’s doctors would consider shutting down their practices or retiring if Obama’s plan is ultimately adopted. As demonstrated very clearly by the townhall protests this past summer, the American people do not want this horrific health care bill to pass. Ron Paul is fighting really hard to keep that from happening.
#3) Carbon Taxes And The Global Warming Fraud
Tens of millions of Americans blindly believe in the environmental quackery of Al Gore, the “eco-prophet”, who is trying to “save the environment” by viciously attacking carbon dioxide. Ron Paul is one of the few members of Congress who is willing to publicly stand up and tell the truth that carbon dioxide is one of the fundamental building blocks of life on earth and that it is NOT causing global warming.
But the American people did not elect Ron Paul. Instead they elected Barack Obama who wants to impose an insane “cap and trade” carbon trading scheme that would decapitate U.S. industry and plunge the U.S. economy into a devastating depression.
#4) Auditing The Federal Reserve
Did you know that the Federal Reserve has never been the subject of a true comprehensive audit since it was created in the early part of the last century? The reality is that the people of the United States have a right to know what is going on over at the privately owned central bank that has almost complete control over U.S. currency and banking. The Federal Reserve played a leading role in creating the horrific economic crisis that the U.S. is currently experiencing, but right now the Federal Reserve has very little accountability to the U.S. Congress or to anyone else for that matter. Ron Paul has introduced legislation that would fundamentally change that.
Barack Obama? All he has done is shovel as much cash to the bankers as he can. He has been very careful to protect the Federal Reserve and he even re-nominated “Helicopter” Ben Bernanke to a second term as the head of the Fed.
#5) Global Currency
Ron Paul is fundamentally against the move towards the creation of a global reserve currency. In fact, he is backing legislation that would protect the status of the U.S. dollar. The truth is that the move towards globalism has gotten completely out of control, and both Democrat and Republican leaders have been recklessly pushing increased globalism on the American people for decades. It is about time that we had a president that is willing to stand up against the globalists and is willing to stand up against a global currency.
#6) Wall Street Bailouts
Ron Paul was one of the most outspoken opponents of the Wall Street bailouts. Why should countless billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars go to Wall Street elitists just because they made some gigantic mistakes? Where is the bailout for all those people who are now living in tent cities across the United States? The Wall Street bankers certainly are not interested in bailing out those who are losing their homes or their jobs. In fact, the Wall Street bankers are hoarding the cash they received in the bailouts and have decreased lending instead of increasing it. The truth is that the bailouts that both John McCain and Barack Obama supported were absolute madness. Ron Paul has been fighting these bailouts, and that is one reason why the Tea Party crowd loves him so much.
#7) Taxing And Spending
Ron Paul knows that it is simply not possible to tax and spend a nation into prosperity. In July 2009, the budget deficit of the U.S. federal government topped $1 trillion for the first time ever. The nation’s debt is expanding so rapidly that it almost seems impossible to keep track of it. Meanwhile, unemployment numbers and foreclosures are headed for the stratosphere. The U.S. economy is dying, and the big government policies of both the Republicans and the Democrats are responsible. Now the Democrats want to raise taxes on an American people that is already being taxed to death. America desperately needs a fiscally responsible leader like Ron Paul in the White House who understands that increasing taxes is NOT the answer.
After the recent government takeovers of General Motors, Chrysler and other once prominent corporations, there is little use denying that the United States is quickly becoming a socialist nation. Ron Paul was one of the few members of Congress who was willing to tell it like it is when Obama was making these moves. Ron Paul is fighting to reverse the march towards socialism and if he was president he would work to get America back on the path of capitalism and free enterprise where we belong.
#9) Civil Liberties
Ron Paul said that if we passed the “Patriot Act” and all of these other fascist police state pieces of legislation that we would lose our individual liberties.
Did that not happen?
But neither major political party is taking any action to repeal the Patriot Act.
Instead, Obama has been moving to strengthen the Patriot Act and to pass other repressive police state measures.
“The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.” –Ronald Reagan (1975)
#10) Foreign Policy
Ron Paul said during the 2008 presidential campaign that the United States simply cannot police the entire world. If we endlessly bomb, invade and occupy other countries and torture everyone in sight then people around the world are going to hate America.
Is that not happening?
But neither the Republicans nor the Democrats are seeking to end these endless wars. Instead, Barack Obama is promising to keep at least some troops in Iraq for years, and he has sent a lot more troops to Afghanistan. Not only that, but now American troops are pouring in to Yemen, and Obama has talked about how we may need to send troops into Pakistan and Sudan.
The conservative movement in the United States desperately needs a true leader right now, and Ron Paul can provide the kind of inspirational leadership that most other Republican politicians simply cannot. Tea Party activists are inspired by Ron Paul. They respond to his leadership. The truth is that the Republicans have not had a true inspirational conservative leader in the White House since Ronald Reagan. It is about time they had another.
Perhaps there is hope for the future. If the American people will just wake up then perhaps the movement that Ron Paul has begun can give us hope for the future and we will elect a real leader in 2012….
But the truth is that unless the American people wake up and get upset about what has been going on in Washington, nothing is going to change. In fact, in 2012 we will probably have another election where an establishment puppet from one party is running against an establishment puppet from the other party. Is that what you want? If not, then now is the time to wake up, get mad and let the establishment know that you are not going to take it anymore….
