Ron Paul can't win unless Republican voters understand that a dollar collapse is much more dangerous than Al QaidaSubmitted by October2007 on Thu, 08/18/2011 - 02:34
I've been having great success changing the minds of some sissy chicken-hawk Republican voters about their stance on the wars in the Middle East.
I've come to realize that the people who support the wars do so purely out of fear. They're afraid of being attacked or killed by some Arab, so in their simplistic and childish understanding of the world, they believe that our bombs are keeping them safe and preventing the deaths of other American civilians. (We all know that's not true and understand the concept of blowback)
Well, I've been telling some of my pro-war friends that more Americans will die from the coming dollar crash than from some goat herder in Afghanistan.
It's true, if we keep fighting these trillion dollar wars our currency will turn to junk and prices will rise dramatically. When prices rise, people are poorer. When people are poorer crime goes up. When crime goes up more people die.
Then when our dollar becomes completely worthless, all bets are off... The government will basically shut down. The military won't be able to protect our country. Many Americans will sadly commit suicide because of their inability to cope with the reality. Civil unrest will ensue and the government will try to quell it with force and violence.
Bottom line: If we keep fighting these wars (or attack Iran) the dollar will undoubtedly crash, and more Americans will die than all the people who died on 9/11.
Ron Paul is the only candidate that understands this and could prevent this from happening.
