You know what I don't like. People on the internet. On my online social site that I read under the Political Section all people talk about is Ron Paul. You can vote whether you like a comment or not. If you say something bad about Ron Paul or good about any of the other candidates you get voted down. No matter how well you argue the point if it against Ron Paul you get voted down. So, naturally I dislike Ron Paul. It doesn't help that their are all kinds of advertisement randomly strew about Provo advocating him. Apparently, Ron Paul is the only man that can save the United States. What I really don't like about the situation is that people actually think he has a chance of winning. They were like, he raised $5 million dollars in the 4th quarter. That means people like him....nevermind the fact that Obama, Clinton, Romney, Giuliani, and others made quite a bit more money then him. I don't have a good link for current contribuations but here's a good one for the previous: http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/index.asp?cycle=2008
In any case, I decided to look up what Ron Paul believes, and I actually agree with him on a lot of topics. He's for reducing the size of the federal government and giving more power to the states. He wants to get the US out of NATO and the UN. However, he wants to stop the war on drugs. I can't agree with that. He also wants to abolish Federal Income Tax. I'm not a fan of taxes but I do believe they are necessary. He wants to bring the US back to the gold standard. I'm not such a big fan of that. I could say more, but I don't want to. :)
Basically, I do not like Ron Paul because the rest of the internet world seems to think he is a god. Which he is not. He is not the answer to our problems. Well, I've said enough. I'm going to watch the rest of the Republic Presidential Debate and report what I liked and disliked.
