Next time RP is asked some stupid, asinine question... probably the first question of the next debate... he needs to say something like this...
"You know, I'm sick of this...
America is at a crossroads. The federal government is out of control. The Federal Reserve is out of control. Our wealth is being fleeced by crooked politicians and multinational corporations... and our currency is being destroyed by the Federal Reserve system. In our current 2-party political system... one side of the aisle wants to bankrupt us with welfare. The other side wants to bankrupt us with warfare. They are both getting their way. And it seems that the politicians and the Wall Street corporations are all doing quite well...because all that wealth is being transferred to them from the shrinking middle class.
We're writing a check that we cannot cash, and this massive debt is going to be passed down to our children and our grandchildren. I know people like to bash me for my foreign policy ideas, but I really don't think most Americans lay in bed at night worried if their children are going to die in a terrorist attack. I think they worry more about what kind of future their children are going to have if the government continues to spend more than it takes in. The $15 trillion we already owe is around $200,000 for a family of four. Then you have to consider social security, medicare, prescription drug programs, shrimp on treadmills and every other unfunded program Congress has passed over the years.
I've been fighting for over 30 years for the American taxpayer. Every vote I've ever taken has been with the taxpayer in mind and according to a strict interpretation of the constitution. I do not get any special interest money because the lobbyists know it will not change my vote. I voted NO on all the bailouts, TARP, all the entitlement programs, and all the wasteful spending. I warned about the housing bubble in the late 90's and everyone laughed. In fact, I was warning about the growing housing bubble while Romney and Gingrich were profiting from it. I been warning about the Fed destroying our money since the 1970's, in fact this is the reason I got involved in politics. Everyone laughed. Our dollar has lost over 80% of it's value since then. I warned that more intervention in the middle east would result in more hatred towards America and more terrorist attacks... and it has.
As I mentioned before... we're at a crossroads. We need to take a serious look at what the role of the federal government ought to be. We need to think about the legacy and the debt we leave to our children. We need to realize that the government cannot take care of us from cradle to grave... nor can it be the policeman of the world... and our children still live in a prosperous society. It takes limited government and self-reliance... strong families, churches and communities... freedom for the people to make their own decisions... and the government out of our lives and out of our wallets. This is what the Tea Party was supposed to be all about. What happened to the Tea Party movement? Why are we suddenly left with these 2 big government republicans leading the race?
The rest of these men on stage... they're all just Obama-lite. After what we've had to put up with from Obama these last 3 years, we need a true fiscal conservative in office to put this country back on the right track financially. We need a proponent of civil liberties to make sure our rights are restored. We need a man of peace, to ensure that our children grow up in a safe and prosperous society.
That's all I wanted to say. And I know I'm not the best speaker in the world... but we've had enough of the slick-talking, good looking politicians who promise one thing and do something else. I'm not that guy. If you want to keep going down the same road, keep sliding toward socialism... vote for one of these other guys. If you're a true conservative and you really want to reduce the size of the federal government... go look at my voting record... watch some of my speeches on youtube... I'm your man.
Oh, and we need more media companies... we need to break up these big conglomerates in our media... cuz these people SUCK."
I know it's not Dr. Paul's style... but he needs to toot his own horn. Gingrich does it. Works for him. And he's about the most ridiculous excuse for a candidate I've ever seen. (Next to Romney... and Santorum.) :)
