Should Ron Paul be president? No! He has accused Israel of bombing the Trade
Center and refuses to take questions on that. Had he had his way, slavery would not have ended in America when it did.
At first I thought Ron Paul had some good ideas on economic policy, but the more I learn about him, the less respect I have for him. He accused Michele Bachmann of hating Muslims when she has said nothing to indicate that this is true and he does not want to answer questions concerning his own position on the issues. For example, concerning newsletters that went out in his name in the eighties and early nineties, this is how he responds:
Though the newsletters were published under several names — including “Ron Paul’s Freedom Report,” “The Ron Paul Political Report,” “The Ron Paul Survival Report” and “The Ron Paul Investment Letter”— the Texas congressman has insisted that he knew nothing about the offensive remarks made in the newsletters.
“I didn’t write them, I didn’t read them at the time, and I disavow them,” he said before unclipping his microphone.
We do not need a president who will not accept responsibility. I have not read the Newsletters since I have not found them yet, but he should not be president if he allowed them to go out in his name without reading them.
Here is something I did find. He seems to take responsibility for the Newsletters when he isn’t running for president. Ron Paul – 1995
Ron Paul, in the newsletters, stated that Lincoln should have “phased out” slavery rather than fought the civil war. Did he not realize that this would have caused slavery to continue for years keeping people in bondage? Also, he seems to have forgotten that states had seceded from the Union. We would not be fifty states had there been no Civil War. How do you phase out slavery if a number of states have seceded? Ron Paul’s thinking is frightening. He should not be president and his followers are encouraging him to believe that he could become the leader of the free world.
His comments during the debate indicate that he would be a disaster on foreign policy.
His faithful followers need to take a closer look at Ron Paul.
