Liberty and Freedom
It’s deceptive how all candidate positions, including BHO, are trending toward those held by Ron Paul and the Tea Party. Deceptive because underlying their rhetoric is their philosophy of governance.
I think Ron Paul’s philosophy is based on the Golden Rule. As a medical doctor he has pledged to do no harm to his patient. He uses the same pledge, to do no harm, to the US Constitution. His integrity has been demonstrated as a doctor and politician. That integrity can also be seen in his private life…. same marriage for 50+ years. And the MSM can’t find any “dirt” in his life because there isn’t any. Considering the other candidates, who would you trust to be the leader of and most powerful individual in the world?
Romney says all the right words but can he be trusted to maintain his positions once in office? Considering his past flip-floppy positions on issues I think not. He seems most interested in becoming CEO of the United States. He could engineer America’s turn-around using his minions of bureaucrats…a continuation of top-down management.
Gingrich is a demagogue. He subscribes to the idea of killing America’s enemies and jailing judges. With the current NDAA in effect, it would be at his discretion as to who they are. Enemies could be anyone who disagrees with his policies. Dissent could be lethal. History is full of such demagogue’s. Even the beloved Abe Lincoln during the Civil War (a Congressional Declaration of War was never issued), suspended habeas corpus, jailed dissenters, and closed newspapers opposing his views.
Santorum is point man for the Christian evangelical “salvation of the world”. People are not to exercise their free will, but ought to submit to “the will of God”. As President, Santorum could dictate what Gods will is. It would be onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war…especially Iran or any Muslim anywhere. However, he’s admitted that, as Senator, he did not vote according to his convictions. As an elected official he lacked the courage of his convictions and voted to go-along-to-get-along.
BHO’s ideology is based community organization. His community includes all the nations of the world. He is less concerned with the US Constitution and more concerned with furthering a globalist agenda. His recent antics are designed for reelection, nothing more.
Except for Paul, the candidates all support the continuation of the American Empire regardless of cost. Costs in blood, treasure, and Constitutional integrity are irrelevant.
