Earlier this week I was seriously considering voting Ron Paul for the next presidential elections, as I stated in my last post The 2012 Demagogic Elections.
It made sense to me to vote for him because since every candidate had the same political and economical views, I might as well vote for the one that was least likely to break my balls with government intervention.
Yet after thoughtful consideration, I won’t vote for him or any other candidate this year.
Even to prevent Obama from gaining a second term mandate, I really don’t see myself signing an adhesion charter to his values.
Maybe if there was another Tea Party candidate presenting himself could I, at a pinch, hold out my ballot, but for me Ron Paul is one of the most despicable politicians.
As much as I hate Santorum and Obama for their efforts to destroy what is left of American culture, at least they have a bit of integrity and at least will they go against the public opinion once in a while.
But Ron Paul no, never will he challenge the global opinion, nether will he risk his popularity, acquired less by his political skills than his inherent tendency to voice political correctness.
How can a candidate call for change when he refuses to see the real problems ? Worse than the blind are those who refuse to see, remember.
How can he challenge the system when he is always looking for scapegoats for every American issue ? Note that he will always attack very little consortia, to be sure that they won’t defend themselves.
Example : the banksters (who do you know that’s a “bankster” ?), the corporations, Wall Street (when was the last time you saw a Wall Street representative on the media ?).
But he would never, for example, assault the ecological lobby which is clearly anti-American, yet receives wide support in our own nation.
Some would argue that a flu is far less inconvenient than plague or cholera, but don’t forget that in modern days a flu kills more than plague or cholera combined.
And honestly, I couldn’t vote for a candidate that :
- Voiced his support to anti-American lobbies and political organizations in 2008 (Green Party)
- Defends the foreign on half of his publicity spots
- Sides with the 99% and Occupy Wall Street movements
- Refuses to see the reality of globalism and America
- Bases his economical program on his ideals and opinions, rather than on factual evidence and reality
- Denied that Iraq’s regime was similar to the third Reich on his debate against McCain. He clearly never read the Iraqi Civil and Criminal codes, which share many similarities with the ones under the Hitler’s regime. But does he only read Arabic ? Or German ?
- Uses obscurantism and massive oversimplifications when talking about the Fed, and economics in general.
- Never backs up his propositions with data, and trait he shares with the liberals.
Ron Paul is either hypocritical or ignorant, and in both cases those are not qualities I would like to see in a president of the United States.
