Critique of the President's speech at the DNCSubmitted by RC Liberty on Fri, 09/07/2012 - 00:08
I want to preface this by saying, I have supported Ron Paul since 2007, and I donated to every money bomb of Paul's 2012 campaign. Also, i'm 99% sure I'll vote for Governor Johnson in November.
This is my summary of the President's speech, and advice to the Republican Nominee.
Obama's main theme: The Democratic party wants to tax the rich to pay for you and your children's healthcare and education. The heartless Republicans want to take your healthcare and education away.
Romney's rebuttal should be simple. He has to defend the free market the way Ron Paul would. Romney should say: No, Mr. President, under your plan our grandchildren are paying for today's healthcare and education. Five trillion in debt in four years is even worse than Bush. Long term your plan is completely unsustainable. We need spending cuts now, so our grandchildren are not born into a debt situation so bad that no one can afford healthcare or education. What is your plan when China stops taking our fiat dollars, and the monetary system becomes so overextended that a gallon of gasoline cost $10 a gallon? Tax the rich? Well, because of your high taxes and socialist regulations many wealthy people have moved their businesses out of our country. Then who suffers? Unfortunately, middle class and the poor.
Who knows what Romney will say, or what he really thinks, but this election would be a lay up for Ron Paul.
Obama's other main critiques and contrast between him and Romney: Romney will keep our troops at war too long, gays should be able to marry, and we shouldn't have bailouts(you lie). Think about how easily Ron Paul would be able to counter and win those arguments! Republicans should have elected Ron Paul if all they wanted was to take out Obama. Instead we have a bailout and individual mandate supporting flip flopper. But hey, he sure does look Presidential doesn't he?
