Ron Paul for PresidentSubmitted by Sad Heart on Fri, 06/22/2012 - 23:09
Each year we allow the media's supposition to sway our vote; then the vote becomes someone else's, not ours anymore. I've been voting that way for years; and now look what we have - the same old stuff, the same old folks, the same old same old, each year making it worse.
This year I am voting the way I want to vote, for the individual in whom I believe - no, not for myself, but for the individual whom I believe will best serve our future interests and the cause of this Nation. So these are my beliefs:
I am tired of working men and women paying income taxes as if their lives, talents and abilities, and time were worth nothing, or should be automatically discounted. I am tired of the FED manipulating the value of money without audit; of delivering our nation into a debt system disguised as credit, and manipulating the economy to the point where individuals have to live on debt rather than pay by cash, all at profits to the banks. I am sick of the fact that the money we earn today has lost its value tomorrow and is worth less than what we paid in labor for it, plus reduced even further by an income tax wrongully applied.
I am tired of the few public officials living the life of trememdous benefits while no one else is able to obtain the same. I am tired of seeing life's work go out the window by the time one passes due to the actions of politicians who pass bill-after-bill, creating out of control bureaucracies of vampires who live by night and day, sucking the blood from working Americans of every level.
I am disgusted with and humiliated by the current Washington example to the general public and foreign nations, making me almost ashamed to say I am an American. I shun the lawlessness and debauchery of many of our elected officials who appear to be uttterly morally and spiritually bankrupt, and yet who lay their righteous decisions upon the backs of the American people at their whim in the name of goodness. I am tired of being a slave.
Enough is enough. I am not a member of any political party, and for good reason: look how the parties control who is in control; how their media moguls dance to their tune; how the real desires of the people are set aside is if they are worthless - look at the choices we are given that are not ours, but theirs.
I am tired of paying for benefits to private political parties, like supplying protection to candidates who are not yet elected; or paying for non-constitutional primary elections to the benefit of these two parties only. They are private corporations, not government entities; why should they receive any benefit from our economy if they choose to have a primary election?
But most of all, I am sick and tired of the Constitution, the Law of the Land, the people's law, brushed aside at every vote, at every proposal, and then used only when convenient. Why, for example, should anyone have to go to the Supreme Court, or any court, to prove what is constitutionally right? Are we really that ignorant of what Right and Wrong is? Justice is not just a punitive measure, Justice is what must be applied to all actions. We are facing that great question right now with the "illegal alien" issue. Justice does not have someone else accept the responsiblity for actions of another wtihout their full agreement.
That's why this year I am voting for Ron Paul. Whether he wins or not is up to God, not me. I am not encouraging anyone to do the same, that is up to you and them. but I am encouraging you to vote for and support whom you know or believe is best, even if its Gunga Din; don't give away your vote anymore. God will give us what is best. That I firmly believe.
