It seems most Americans agree federal spending is out of control and needs to be cut. However, actually having the courage to identify specific and massive cuts is where all politicians become cowards; at least until now. I am glad to see Ron Paul has the courage to identify exactly where he would cut federal spending. No doubt many people will be upset about having their favorite federal program cut, but too bad. We are at risk of losing the American way of life forever.
Ron Paul is the only candidate, with the possible exception of Gary Johnson, who actually would improve the problems that are absolutely set to destroy our country. However, I don’t put much confidence in the ability of the typical American voter to actually do the right thing. Indeed, they got us into these problems in the first place by electing morons. Most Americans will be more impressed by a slick suit or an energetic, promise laden speech given by some well polished politician than dry, boring, solutions to our problems.
As Ronald Reagan once said, “Government is not the solution to our problems, government IS the problem.” He was right. A simpler and more direct way to express the problem is as my good friend Ernest Hancock says, “Freedom Good! Government bad, bad, bad, bad, bad!”
