I might add that the corporate welfare subsidies are higher then the social welfare programs. corporate welfare
Lets be honest here for a minute...Ron Paul hasn't got a prayer. The game is rigged. Corporations have long since bought the politicians.. and elections. It aint going to happen. Not a chance. It is too late. this country has been an oligarchy for a long time..For the corporations by the coporations and of the corporations .. That is why RP does not get any traction or media attention. Without media attention he is sunk.
I agree with some of Dr. Pauls policies, but not enough to vote for him.. at this point I think I might vote for No one for President. I am sick of shat I see in Washintoon and while Dr. Paul has some good attributes my mind is set against voting for him....Though I do like his message about the ideas I do like to be included in the debate.. so for that I am glad to see him in there...
I recommend any "safety nets" be coughed up at the state level. I believe most of these "safety nets" shouldn't exist. I believe truly disabled people should have the ability to receive assistance. Corporate welfare shouldn't exists, but it exists because of the current system we have in place. Ron Paul is polling second in Iowa right now, and 3rd in the country. He also wins almost every straw poll. Not to mention his supporters do not leave him like the others. He doesn't ever fall in the polls, just a steady gain. I agree the system is rigged, and like you I sometimes feel hopeless about it. I won't give up on Ron Paul though. If he isn't elected I see no hope. We will just get more of the same if he isn't. I don't agree with everything RP says, but you can see his 30+ year voting record, and he votes with principles, not for lobbiest or money.
