Not Thinking of Voting for Ron Paul because of the Abortion Issue? Then You’re an Idiot
There are a bunch of folks out there who claim that they like Ron Paul and what he stands for but that they simply cannot agree with him over such issues like that of abortion and will thus refuse to vote for the man in the 2012 elections.
Ron Paul is a staunch ‘pro lifer’, that much is certain. But why does Ron Paul’s personal views on abortion mean a damn thing when it comes to the salvation of our country? Only Ron Paul has the solutions to fix the broken mess of an economic system here in this country. Only Ron Paul wants to effectively curtail the American empire which costs us billions of dollars to maintain. Everyone else currently running for President offers nothing but ‘more of the same’ and thus the election of any other candidate would mean the end of the United States as we know it.
Ron Paul would ultimately allow the abortion issue- like any other issue- to be decided upon by the states. If enormous social pressure in one particular state forces abortion to be made legal, then such would be the case. However, the opposite is also true. If the majority in one particular state seek to ‘protect life’, then those pushing for ‘abortion rights’ would be s**t out of luck. I think this situation offers a pretty fair balance and most would agree.
But the abortion issue aside- and other such issues like that of gay marriage and the like- shouldn’t it be more of a concern in this country to get a hold of the massive, $15 trillion dollar deficit? Shouldn’t it be more of a concern to have a President in power who wouldn’t actively pursue war with Iran? Remember, China and Russia have both vowed to protect Iran if the United States decides to attack one day. Are we truly ready to fight a third world war over something as trivial as the issue of Iran?
Am I with Ron Paul when it comes to abortion? Its hard to say. I would beckon all who are interested to check out my ‘third side’ argument in the abortion debate. But nevertheless, despite my not personally agreeing with everything Paul says doesn’t mean that I won’t be voting for him in 2012. Hell, this is America- a nation of intense diversity. Do we really expect to find someone out there who we can agree with 100% of the time?
If you don’t vote for Ron Paul and instead choose someone like Barack Obama or Newt Gingrich simply because they stand with you on one particular issue like that of abortion, then you must be suffering from a severe form of neuroses and should have that checked out immediately- either that or you’re prescription medicated and thus your opinion is null and void.
Ron Paul doesn’t make such a big deal over abortion and gay marriage because to him, these are issues that can be determined by friends, families, churches, and the prevalent culture. We’ve got bigger fish to fry at the moment. The useless bickering that is better reserved for a high school debate team ought to cease. America ought to get back to work- and our expensive empire must end. Ron Paul is the only candidate seriously opting for such.
