Take a look at Ron Paul’s resume. I know it’s fashionable to love Ron Paul, but many who support him have no idea who they really support. Besides this list here, Paul would like to get rid of all middle class subsidies. Guess someone should let Mr. Paul know that the middle class is what makes the American economy what it is. Without their spending power, America is as good as dead. Take away what makes them middle class and you take away the middle class.
Paul introduced The Sanctity of Life Act of 2005, a bill that would have defined human life to begin at conception, and removed challenges to prohibitions on abortion from federal court jurisdiction. Defining embryos and fetuses as persons would make abortion murder and outlaw fetal stem cell research and some contraception and fertility treatments. In 2005, Paul introduced the We the People Act, which would have removed “any claim based upon the right of privacy, including any such claim related to any issue of … reproduction” from the jurisdiction of federal courts. If made law, either of these acts would allow states to PROHIBIT ABORTION.

These casual supporters need to be aware that the vast majority of his views are bizarre and extreme.

Ron Paul authored a newsletter in which he made the following racist statements (among many others):
RP Quote: “If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.”
RP Quote: “Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions”
RP Quote: “Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the “criminal justice system,” I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal”
RP Quote: “we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.”
RP Quote: “We don’t think a child of 13 should be held responsible as a man of 23. That’s true for most people, but black males age 13 who have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such.”
RP Quote: “What else do we need to know about the political establishment than that it refuses to discuss the crimes that terrify Americans on grounds that doing so is racist? Why isn’t that true of complex embezzling, which is 100 percent white and Asian?”
He wants to ban abortion, legalise the teaching of creationism and remove the separation between church and state. His politics stink of Christian fundamentalism and to believe otherwise is a fantasy.
A vote for Ron Paul endorses irrationality, dishonesty, bigotry, racism, fundamentalism, obscurationism and an incredibly retrograde and backwards world view. If you vote for Ron Paul, you are voting for these things. You don’t get to pick and choose and claim that your vote endorses a “balanced budget” and not “a 19th century style deportation project estimated to cause over a hundred thousand deaths”.
