It is a misconception that Paul is a libertarian. He is actually very much a constitutionalist. Funny thing is that Paul is a doctor, but he understands the Constitution infinitely more than all the lawyers in Congress.
My earliest memory of politics was when I was about 9 years old watching the news and being terrified that Newt Gingrich was going to take me away from my parents and put me in a government orphanage because we were on food stamps at the time.
looks like the liberal media accomplished their goals
With looming economic doom over the horizon, i sincerely doubt that Obama will win the next election, unless Americans really are that plain ignorant. You think Obama's and congress' ratings are low now, wait till the dollar tanks...that'll be the official nail in the coffin for them, which works in Ron Paul's favor being he is the only candidate that doesn't subscribe to the fascist status-quo. I still think there's a good chance Obama won't run for re-election next year. In the political world, Obama has an eternity till the next election...considering this and current on-going developments he faces, i.e. escalating wars and the domination of the middle east with sights now on Iran; economic turmoil that will make the 2008 crash look whimpy in comparison; heightening of fascist police state in correspondence with rising protests...let's just say A LOT can, and probably will happen between now and then, which will hopefully help Americans to see the world and its systems in a different light.
Ron Paul in my opinion has the best chance to win because he is the only person who stands out from the rest. Obama, Gingrich, Romney, Perry, etc are literally all clones of eachother. When sh*t hits the fan I would like to think that people will no longer continue to look towards these establishment puppets who have been enabling this mess from the start.
I honestly think people blow affirmative action way out of proportion. I think it would help more on school admissions than on the job. And once you get in you still have to pull your weight.
Can you find examples of someone who only has their job because of their race, sure but it was always hyped way more than reality. Now when I was in school, it used to piss me off, and I wrote several papers debating the need and validity of it. I even was told by several organizations when i graduated high school that had I not been a white male, they would have gladly awarded me scholarships.
But now that I've been in the work place a while, I still think it is wrong but i think it has so little impact that there isn't any need to get worked up over it.
Do you think where you went to school can have an impact on whether you get certain jobs?
