Out of the Blue

We had a fine old family outing yesterday, and the pastrami was exceptional, so a good time was had by all. It was a bit of an adventure on the roads, however, as we were confronted by a startling number of drivers who had difficulty staying even remotely in their own lane. My temptation is to blame it on cell phones, but in spite of seeing evidence that it was in some cases, it makes me feel like an old fogey to say that.

I have a honest question:
In the 2012 Presidential Election, who do I vote for to screw me over the least?

Ron Paul?
If your serious, I'll take a shot at it. I don't see how. RP has polices are basically bipolar. On the one hand he wants to stop nation building, with some bipartisan work could be very prosperous. To stop it completely would be madness, since every nation has had to have help from other nations, every one. US would still be an English colony. Iirc General Washington had been push across the Delaware exhausted and beaten. Cut off from supply lines and many wounded, in winter. Can anyone name the guy who decided to go to France to ask for help?

France loved this guy and democracy so much (I'm giving way to many hints), not only did they agree to help the US they sent 4000 men, ships, weapons and supplies. They also sent at least one bad ass 19 year old General, who help turn the tide of the war and ultimately securing victory against the English.

On the other hand if you look closely at his domestic policies, RP really, really wants to remove all safety nets everywhere. It would destroy our society financially and morally, basically sociopathic. I don't say this as an attack, just a fact.

You can prove it to yourself just by trying to name one prosperous nation ever in history who's done it, ever. Or I could tell you how every nation with any semblance freedom, is built on the Legacy Debt. Or how Social Security is the most successful government program in history, ever anywhere and it's even statically verifiable. Once again if you want to solve it, try to name another program ever in any nation with a better cost benefit ratio. It's only in bad shape now since they start looting it in the 1980s to pay for the 2 wars and a tax cut.

Or I could point out how he wants to return to a gold standard...I know don't laugh, it's true. Any idea why we changed to a currency based system FROM the gold standard? This is becasue from 1873 to 1933 under the gold standard, where was a near financial collapse an average of every 6 years. 1873, 1884, 1890, 1893, 1907, 1930, 1931, 1932, and 1933. You can verify this again by naming a single nation ever that can handle (move, secure, borrow and transfer) as much capital as the US or other first world nations, with gold.

Doesn't matter who says something Romeny, Obama, Ross Perot or Ron Paul. If it never existed and they can't explain it, then their full of shit.

There's a lot more too this, most of it's above my pay grade. This is just the bare basics but it passes the 80% rule.
