TFK have you ever thought of being a freelance writer? You are seriously really good.Hello, in 2008 I wrote Ron Paul in on my vote for president. I am an independent voter. I am not in the Tea Party or nothing like that. I actually thought that it was really ironic how it seemed the Tea Party formed and started griping about the unconstitutional misuse of power. Maybe they were around before Obama, I don't know. What was ironic about that to me was it seemed that the unconstitutional stuff was going on way before Obama. Bush was like a tyrant....You are for us or you are against us!!! ... Don't talk about conspiracy theories about 911....don't investigate 911....oh, wait a year or two and then....let Henry Kissinger investigate it....Oh, ok, an investigation that was a sham.....oh where oh where are those pesky WMDs? I was so desperate to get rid of George Bush I bought a bumper sticker for my vehicle that said "OBAMA" just to maybe pull a vote away from the republicans. I vowed to never, ever vote democrat or republican again. I wrote in Ron Paul (My man!!!!!) but knew it was a pipe dream. He wasn't even on the ticket. I voted for him anyway.
I agree with Ron Paul on property rights issue. But I wonder what his position is on property frights. You know, Monsanto suing farmers for "stealing" from them when GMO crops turn up in the field. Monsanto sends out agents to trespass and take genetic samples from the people's fields. If they find genes that are modified by Monsanto, the people are sued for stealing. Think of it this way... If I document the serial numbers from some dollar bills in my hand and then let the bills be blown onto the wind onto my neighbors property , do I have the right to send private detectives onto my neighbor's land or into his house to find my bills? If I saw the neighbor chase them down as they were blown across his property, can I call the police and have him arrested? That is basically what happens to the poor farmers. It looks to me like the NWO in action. any judge in the world who would uphold a case like this for Monsanto should be tarred and feathered because he is no friend of the people.
So, is this Tea Party a new party? Duh, it's too bad it's not. After the way Ron Paul is treated by the media, any Ron Paul supporter should either drag the Tea Party to make a new party or all change to independents.
A bit about me .... I hate Rush Limbaugh with a passion. And Dick Cheney lent him credibility by being on his show. When Obama was elected, people were saying that Rush Limbaugh inherited the republican party. I bet the republicans are real proud of that...except maybe Ron Paul. I can see why the republican party treats him as an outcast, but I can't explain why the media treats him as an outcast. Fair and balanced? Fox reports, you decide? Obviously the republicans are being denied a fair and balanced look at Ron Paul --- a republican! Gee, the networks are biting the republican hands that bought them! I guess the media are all liberal as Rush Limbaugh says!!!! They sure do not want anyone as conservative as Ron Paul as president!!!
A bit more... I am a working stiff.
A bit more... I am a veteran.
A bit more.... I worked as a contractor for HUD years ago....I was doing sunup to sundown working three different cities and I thought it was a good start. I was supposed to make 1700 dollars for the first month. HUD dropped the contract of the company who held the HUD contracts. The company went bankrupt on me. I finally received total payments of 700 dollars through bankruptcy court over a period of about 3 years for that first month. A couple of months later, I got a call and started working for the next company to get the contracts. After a few months, I got a call saying I would soon be receiving less money for my services. I told them, too bad, find someone else, I quit. I really was in depression. Then I felt like something was wrong with the United States business climate and something more.... I researched at my local library for about a year, learning how to use the internet. I eventually went to college and earned a degree in graphic design. I haven't made any money doing that, though and I owe a pile of student debt. I am a real happy camper working as a janitor, production worker, cleanup man, painter, etc.
I have noticed all this stupid back and forth that the media is used to deliver to we the people over the last few years. You people are fat, you people neeed to get a job. (Occupy Wall Street protesters were thrown McDonald's applications. Hey , I applied there, they weren't interested I guess) I applied for the DHS back when they started up. I guess they didn't want a veteran with no criminal record. I guess I should have said I was a child molester. Sometime before 2001 , when I was depressed, I woke up to see a story headline in the local paper, "HUD loses 59 billion dollars" !! (lost, misplaced) Not as bad as pentagon losing 2 trllion bucks day before 911, but, hey at least Ilook at the positive side of SOME things!
wow that cheered me up. I thought, "and the (original) company I worked contracts for "wasn't doing what they were supposed to?" The second company told me when I quit, "..but..you're our best worker....go figure. And now I live in public housing. (HUD) Ironic isn'tit? <notice! So now I guess I have to listen to Newt spoon feed me a lesson on how to get work....or how I'm a welfare bum..! Veteran, Yes, Working, yes, bum, yes.
Anyway, its no wonder I see threads about "America haters." You have to understand I love to ride "The Spider" at the carnival, but if it won't stop or throws me out I will hate it. That doesn't mean I have to hate the whole carnival. Fire the mechanic and I'll be happy. But the thing is, if the United States is compared to the carnival...the mechanic would be given a raise, i would be scolded and spied upon to see if I was going to get mad and be a "Spider hater." I would have the Department of Homeland Security harrass me at every carnival for getting sick or injured.
In my view of America, if Mitt I-love-to-fire-people-Romney gets elected or Newt -don't-ask-about-my-ex-Gingrich is the nominee, the whole democratic republic idea is "toast". revolution time...and President Obama just signed the NDAA to rub the patriot act and the NDAA stealing of our right to a trial by a jury of our peers!!!! And Leiberman and McCain want to be able to strip our citizenship? And the TSA is running roadblocks and scanning people with X-rays at airports and now huge x-ray machines will be hitting us as we go down the road? Will our doctors be faxed the frequency of dosages we get?
Will this ride please stop?
Not one mention in history of a steel framed building collapsing by fire alone.....the buliding #7 in the World Trade Center collapsed on 911 when it was not hit by a plane...hmmm , you don't get an explanation for that/ not in the 911 investigation report? George Bush has disrespected the families of 911 victims by not answering thier questions? slow down, Spider I want off that republican/democrat SPIDER!
Ron Paul has stated that he will not run as an independent , but if any of you RP supporters switch your vote to one of those other pretend to be conservatives it would be stupid, not foolish. I actually would try to be a RP delegate but I won't switch from independent to republican to do it.
If Ron Paul doesn't get the nomination, you should switch to independent party. I don't see why everyone who is not bought out doesn't switch to the independent parties and support the Declaration of Independence.
Most I have written since college. You all take care, I hope RP does better here in Kentucky. Go Ron! And by the way, Senator Rand Paul actually sent me a reply to an email that I believe he or a staffer actually read. That's a first for me. In the past no one seemed to give a reply that I could be sure wasn't an computer autoreply. I have recieved letters from Kentucky politicians that didn't even seem to reply to my letter--maybe someone else's letter, but not mine. I am not saying that was the case all the time, but more often than not I felt like it was a joke..
