He can't keep basing his message off anti war. That is not the main part of the message.
But the students and Paul-Left and fake Libertarians have made Paul into some communist Naom Chompski figure speaking to students in sweaters.
When he started speaking in Universities and wearing the sweaters, he tanked in the polls even further. That was the wrong thing to do.
I wish Paul wouldn't have brought the left into the party by preaching anti-war and nothing else.
There was this guy in the Paul comments praising Paul and then telling people to watch 'the shock doctrine 2009'. That movie is basically a pro marxist hit piece filled with lies. The movie promotes marxism and staged wars by the rich. The same far left idiocracy.
It's like dude.. how can you be a Paul supporter, and then be promoting a pro Marxist movie. Then you go to see the movie (which was filled with lies), and the ratings are all thumbs up with Paul supporters.
There's a Marxist element in the Paul movement that only want to hear 'hate the fed (they see it as 'hate the rich'), and be 'stop the wars'.
They don't understand that 800,000 civil servants will be sent packing home. Best Buy will fold creating unemployment of workers and truckers. There will be riots on the streets from civil servants. Welfare payments to states will disappear. Entitlements will disappear. Things like NASA and other boondoggles will be privatized and layoffs will be massive. States and inner city schools are going to lose federal funding. Affordable housing will demolished. People in the US will have a MUCH harder time buying a home and interest rates will rise. House prices will drop. People will lose TONS of money on their 401k's (at first yes it will hurt). Gov't won't be coving things like flood insurance so if there's a disaster, people will be on their own. Immigrants will flood into the country. Paul likes immigrants and many of his supporters do NOT agree with his immigration policies. I'd even say the majority of his supporters (real supporters, not the Marxist ones). States will have more powers to be even MORE tyrannical. Members of congress would be striking. I'm talking hunger strikes. It's happened here in Canada so no reason why it woudln't over there. This is what gov't handouts breed. Oh and yes there would be DE-flation for a long time.
While all of the things above would be rough for some years, it's VERY NECESSARY to fix the current problems. It's medicine that no one wants to swallow. The idea is reduce tax and regulations, and have businesses feel safe to come back to the United States and bring back jobs. I can assure you, the Marxist Paul supporters have no idea what his real plans are or any of the above ideas. Alll they think is that Paul is some anti-war hippie. He's not. He's much, much tougher than Regan and likely could be the greatest president of all time.
This is why some of us who are original Paul supporters have lost faith. We know he won't win. We know the message has gotten out, but people really want their entitlements protected and to get involved in international politics. The kids just want to hear anti-war or want to jump on the Paul bandwagon because he's the new Chompsky or something.
We need a separatist community. So far those who seem to promote this are: Lou Rockwell, Peter Schiff, Stefan Molyneux, Gerald Celente, Alfred Adask, Kerry Lutz. We all support Paul, but we've all lost 'faith' at this point and in the system. Things are brewing. Words are getting stronger.
I recommend not to vote. Obama isn't as bad as he seems. He'll just keep the civil servant system going and will hopefully show people it won't work. But be careful, if Romney gets elected, who knows what he might do. We do know he wants to police the Internet and go after local citizens for copyright. He's very, very big on police and law. He wants to start terrifs with China if they essentially don't pay Microsoft. He said this I'm not kidding. So you and me will have to pay higher prices for Chinese goods in order to fund the Microsoft stocks which are held by pension funds and 401k's of civil servants. No private citizen owns stock anymore. This is his answer.
He says he's going to link public sector pay to private. Sounds good at first. But how on earth do you do that? Oh I know how. Start a new gov't department lined with civil servants out of academia that will EVENTUALLY ensure that the pay of civil servants are MUCH higher than ours. That's all that will come out of this. Another laughable boondoggle. What's SCARY about this, is it paves the way for the gov't to tell YOU how much are allowed to be paid for what you do. They will do this to ensure that the corporation you work for stays profitable so their civil servant pensions can go up... Sound like COMMUNISM to me.
Obama aint so bad compared to a Romney disaster.. I just recommend NOT to vote this election and let the cards fall.
