How Ron Paul should answer every debate question...Submitted by wpsmithjr on Sat, 05/07/2011 - 17:05
There is one thing that makes RP stand out amongst all other candidates... his track record... especially when compared to other major republican candidates, Romney, Gingrich and the like.
I would answer every question something like this...
"It doesn't matter how I answer this question. It doesn't matter how the other people in this debate answer this question. What matters is HOW DO WE VOTE. These other candidates can stand up here talking about how they want to reign in the federal government, reduce taxes, balance the budget, protect our rights, and promote family values... but how have they voted in the past??? I'll tell you how I've voted...
I've never voted for an increase in taxes.
I've never voted for an unbalanced budget.
I've never voted for taxpayer funding for abortion.
I've never voted for a restriction on gun ownership.
I've never voted for amnesty for illegals.
I've always given a portion of my budget back to the treasury... back to the people."
"These other candidates all give LIP SERVICE to free markets, liberty and sound money... but how do they really vote given the chance??"
"If you want to vote for another candidate, like Obama, who says all the right things...but does something completely different once in office... then vote for one of my competitors. If you're tired of voting for one thing and then getting something else... VOTE FOR ME."
"Even if you don't agree with my stances on some issues, at least you know what you are getting with me. At least I am telling you THE TRUTH."
