Ron Paul is arguably the best fix for all that is wrong with the U.S.A. today. His ideologies and concepts are radical in the extreme. For example, if he were to achieve the presidency, his first order of business would be to abolish the Federal Reserve Bank. How off the charts is that? Abolish the Fed? But THAT is what is needed to get our economy under control. WHY? Because, despite its patriotic seeming name “FEDERAL” Reserve Blah Blah, there is nothing federal about it. Few know (and that’s the way they want it) that the fed is privately OWNED by such corporate cartels as The Bilderberg Group, Monsanto, Skull and Bones and a few others. If you don’t know who these people are just Google them. I promise you a shocking education.

If that’s not bad enough, the Fed, which is dangerously self-regulating, cannot (or will not) come up with a solution for the runaway economy, of which it is the most guilty protagonist, other than…“print more money”. Any moron can see that this "solution"at the end of the day will only cost more of the valueless monopoly money to print more of the valueless monopoly money. SHEESH!!!

While Ron Paul is not for a socialist reform of any kind (history, of course, shows that socialism simply does not work), he is for the reconstruction of our healthcare system by largely cutting the insurance and drug companies’ ability to lobby in legislation to their own benefit, thereby cutting healthcare and pharmaceutical costs by at least 60-70%.

I could go on and on singing the praises of this man and his policies to the point of seeming sycophantic but that’s not my way. I’m not here to write the Ron Paul biography.

The truly sad thing is that he probably will never achieve the presidency for two major reasons: He is flying in the face of the most powerful political/corporate groups in the history of the world…AND… good old American apathy, complacency and malaise. Want to hear what I think is a shocking and sickening statistic? For a country that touts itself as the purest form of democracy on the planet, America has had only ONE presidential election in which a majority of the registered voting population turned out to vote. How’s THAT for a barometer on apathy and neglect? So therin lies the other BIG reason Ron Paul cannot win an election. Only 30% (at best) of the registered voters will turn out. Of those 30% how many will really know antything about the issues on the table? 10-12%? And out of that 10 or 12 % maybe…MAYBE 4 or 5 % will see the sense in Mr. Paul’s proposed solutions.

BUT, ya never know.

For a supporter such as myself, it is frustrating in the extreme. Nevertheless, I strongly urge all who take the time to read this to research Ron Paul’s platform for yourselves and vote your heart of hearts come election time. But vote…Please.
