The Veto President: What Ron Paul COULD do as PresidentSubmitted by Treg on Mon, 05/23/2011 - 10:33
Congressman Ron Paul has a lot of positions on a lot of issues. And yes he is very clear about them. No hiding behind the Popularity Polls for Congressman Paul. This Congressman calls it like he sees it and he has been doing it this way since the seventies. What a relief. Imagine that, a Congressman who doesn't flip flop on the issues and is always taking a clear stand on the issue. What a big relief it is to have a question answered, not avoided.
The internet loves Dr. Paul for the simple reason of historical consistency. People may and do agree on some things that Dr. Paul says, but not all things. People can safely guess how Dr. Paul will vote. Few people agree with everything Dr. Paul believes in, yet they support him for the simple reason that they know what kind of man he is.
So, now that Dr. Paul is running for President, what kind of President would the people get? Two things: They would get a president that Vetoed Spending, any spending and they would get thousands of new jobs, real American jobs. As the economy explodes in growth from all that vetoing, America again rises to the top. Its an old story that Americans love to forget and discover again and again.
Indeed, Dr Paul would be the "Veto President". Its very clear that a Paul Presidency would be about vetoing pretty much everything Congress charges to the Public Bank Account. This would be good for the economy. The Stock Market would rally up and the dollar's value would hold.
The biggest thing a Paul Presidency would give us? Jobs. JOBS. As the corporate environment would improve, the jobs would improve. As spending declines in Washington, spending would increase in the economy. Jobs, jobs, jobs would be a good thing. If a Paul Presidency vetoed the spending in Washington, then the economy would take off. A true economy exuberance would ensue. Business from China would be racing to get into the American market. Moreover, companies in China would return by the thousands. Stopping Washington spending has wonderful effects. It means Jobs and a healthy economy.
A Ron Paul President could not do many things. A President Paul could not single offhandedly change Roe vs Wade's abortion decision. Nor could President Ron Paul kill Social Security or end Medicare or even "legalize drugs". Those are not in the cards for a Paul Presidency. Nor could President Paul reinstall respect for the Constitution in every Senator and Congressman. Wise voters smile and know that a Paul Presidency would mean two things: lots of vetoes and lots of jobs.
What a President Paul could do is end the out of control spending in Washington, something every Republican says. But this Republican is different, he votes that way and Republicans know it. The facts bare it out that President Paul would veto any spending, where ever that spending goes. If American tax payer money is spraying out in a gusher to five wars in the middle east or splashing down the drain in pork projects, President Paul's consistent vetoes would make it a hard for that to continue. Under a President Paul, Washington would finally have to live within its budget. Now that would be a real Change.
