The issues that matter

Yes, I see the points being made here. I don't think the debate is the time and/or place for the history lesson. There simply isn't enough time. Most politicians use the time to say things like "I have a plan that will blah, blah, blah..." And surprisingly, that is good enough for the American people. Nixon got elected because he said he had a "secret plan" to get us out of Viet Nam. That plan remained secret for the duration of his Administration, and remains secret to this day.

But I think along these lines Dr. Paul could say - and in all truth and honesty - that he has a plan to reduce inflation, end the war, and create good jobs for Americans. That plan was written over 200 years ago. It's called our Constitution.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
