I believe that the positive would out weigh the negative. Ending war. Tearing apart the tax code. Ending the war on drugs releasing thousands of non violent criminals. Breaking down the fed. Lowering the price of college. getting rid of so much regulation and burden on small business owners. If I can have that over what we have had for the last few generations, I will take it.
I suppose I was being too polite with my initial post. I don't think it's a good idea at all to look at why a certain politician votes a certain way. It's more important to look at the likely consequences of such votes. To me, Paul encapsulates the expression ''The road to Hell is based on good intentions'' just perfectly.
