Things Ron Paul Needs To Emphasize MoreSubmitted by kevink on Sun, 12/11/2011 - 15:25
These are just my observations but I'm wondering what other Ron Paul fans think of this list of things that I feel like Dr. Paul needs to emphasize more.
-His position on the Fed. In recent debates he's said stuff like, "everyone already knows my position on the Fed". Is that really the case though? What about people who are getting turned on to politics for the first time?
-The most conservative (and certainly the most consistent) in the group. He lets Michelle Bachman use that line when he it is painfully obvious that he is clearly the most consistently conservative.
-The most donations from the troops. This should be mentioned in every single debate.
-Has been in the private sector. Sure he's been a politician for a long time but he worked as a doctor during much of that time (delivering babies twice a week). But Mitt loves to talk about how he's the guy who has "private sector" experience. Dr Paul earned his money in medicine.
-How about mentioning that he didn't take medicare because he doesn't believe in it (instead choosing to treat patients for free). To me that really shows how principled Dr. Paul is.
-The fact that he doesn't believe a president can run the economy. I know he's touched on this but he should mention the distinction that he doesn't push for subsidizing energy or manufacturing but rather just for the government to play the role of referee. He can mention stuff like Solyendra is what happens when the president tries to run the economy.
-In terms of taxes, he lets everyone else mention their reductions in taxes. But I feel like I don't hear him mention getting rid of the income tax enough.
