ThyBlackMan: Ron Paul & Herman Cain’s Different Philosophies….Submitted by RaulPon on Thu, 09/29/2011 - 10:05
Another fine ThyBlackman article on Ron Paul..this time from another staff writer, Mr. Dell Gines.
Looks like the Revolution is winning more and more hearts and minds of our staff writing Brothers over at ThyBlackMan.
"Ron Paul is a libertarian, Herman Cain is a far right conservative. This makes them almost as different as a Republican versus a Democrat."
"An example of the difference — Gay Marriage. Ron Paul would most likely tell you that he does not care if two gays get married, but that it has to be personal in nature. The government should not be involved in any marriage, not just gay marriage. It should be between the two people and their religion or relationship, and the government has no business in providing anyone a marriage license or giving special consideration to married people."
"An example of the difference — Drug Legalization. Ron Paul believes that individuals have the right to choose to consume and do the things that they want (even if it harms them) as long as it doesn’t impose on the freedoms of others. This means that the use of drugs are the choice of the grown adult and the government should not impose itself to stop them. He is against the war on drugs, which he believes has created a prison state and increased our prison population to a ridiculous level."
"An Example of the Difference – Islam. Ron Paul believes that each American should be free to worship as they choose, as long as that worship does not harm the freedom of other people to worship. He would have no problem appointing an Islamic individual to a position of power if that person upheld libertarian principles."
"If I had to choose I would choose Ron Paul because the elimination of the war on drugs in and of itself would be of great benefit to the Black community. But other than that, as an independent political pragmatist, I would have a hard time supporting either in a presidential election if they got that far."
