2012 is where our focus should be as we should realize that 2008 is so wrapped up in Religion and Corruption that it should be ignored after the election. It matters little who wins the White House as no changes will be made. I’m willing to see what the Democrats can do with the mess with the war, the economy, immigration, foreign involvement and the uniting of Canada, the USA and Mexico which will go through unless we revolt. Neither party will stand up to it. Neither party will improve the academic mess unless it is pumping more money in a failed system.
My plan is two-fold: Many here will be pleased with the Democrats who will redistribute the wealth and bring socialism into controlling the corporations and making Constitutional changes banning the lobbyists. The GOP has no one who can beat the Democrats because of the total corruption found all over the religious right and the social conservatives.
At this time there is only one man who campaigns on the Constitution and limiting its intrusive growth into all our lives. I had hoped that Dr. Paul will lay out his plans to return to the Constitution and ease out of the welfare programs that many of us have put lots of money into the system.
He has said that he will not cancel S.S. or Medicare at one time but would allow the younger workers to opt out of the plan if they wish. He has not been able to sell this new plan and his voting numbers are very low.
We must not try to run any candidate who wants a limited government, individual freedoms and personal responsibilities as the GOP gave these up in 1992. Dr. Paul may be too old in 2012 but his agenda could attract many competent candidates who have followed his messages of liberty. We need an Independent as the LP is split far too wide to nothing much more than a weak GOP.
Dr. Paul would be much more attractive to the voters if he would throw off the mantle of corruption in the GOP.
