Ron Paul Finishing in Third Place


I was hoping for atleast a second place finish, but had some hope for a first place performance. I didn’t pay attention for a few days and then ‘bam’ Santorum. With Mitt sitting comfortably as he has the entire primary process and Paul conducting his usual grassroots, as I was watching on CNN, suddenly Santorum was boasting huge numbers, and I realized what missing a few days can do.

Not to jab Santorum’s campaign – he had little money but traveled lots – but one cannot discount the hype unleashed by the media. For a long time it was a two man race between Paul and Romney, so it wasn’t surprising for a third to be ‘placed’ in.

Santorum boasts a record of voting for the debt ceiling numerous times and being a heavy supporter of earmarks. His foreign policy is quite harsh, with Iran in his sights, and he is VERY socially conservative. When guests on the show were being asked why they supported him, they started rambling about family values and not being able to say much else.

Why do I wish Paul had won? Paul is the most fiscal conservative of the group. He realizes that not only the state is in over 15 trillion of debt, but that this money is owed by the citizens of America. He is much more socially liberal than his other rivals also. He doesn’t believe in a constitutional ban on gay marriage and is against the war on drugs. Other topics that are more socially liberal are not government by Paul’s personal beliefs. He believes in strict adherence to the constitution and liberty, and has no desire to dictate and control the lives of Americans with big government. It is costly, and along with the war on drugs, foreign aid, foreign wars, the military budget, the American empire, the nation will only be brought deeper.

He has stood against the Patriot Act and the TSA, and recognized the dangers of the newly passed NDAA, singed by Obama after he claimed he would veto.

Hope isn’t lost yet though. I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if Santorum surges stops and he begins dropping and the other candidates stay low or begin slowly dropping out expect for Huntsman (has campaigned a lot in NH). Paul maintained 20% while experiencing a harsh period of hazing and questioning over racist newsletters. However, this event struck a huge blow as I and many supporters were hoping for atleast a second place finish. New Hampshire will be interesting, and I’m curious to see how Paul campaigns and what ads get released and whom their aimed at (Santorums first potential moment to be in the crosshairs).

Some videos of the man who should have won:

Armed Chinese Troops In Texas


Although I support Ron Paul in the coming up American elections, I decided to post this message primarily due to the point it gets across; Americans would not accept the treatment their state has been providing towards other nations.

Ron Paul’s New TV Ad – Conviction


With the Republican field appearing weak and Paul recently being in second place in fundraising it has become clear he no longer is a fringe candidate. With this comes an important responsibility; marketing oneself to the electorate.

This ad delivers. A strong message as well as effective political marketing are present. Was very surprised at the quality of this piece!

Who Am I?


This question is difficult to answer. I’m a nineteen year old. I’ve got a nice family and study politics and philosophy at university. I like to read, write, play video games, and socialize in smaller settings.

More importantly, I am an individual who is constantly thinking philosophically; searching for wisdom. Thus, my mind is constantly in conflict and I remain on the fence in ideology. I am not a Marxist, a Libertarian, a socialist, or anything else you can name. I am simply an individual whom is unhappy with the current state of society who finds the world to complex to pin to a particular ideology.

Despite this I consider myself to have an abundance of Marxist critiques on our current society as well as strong support for many aspects of libertarianism. I tend to have more support for smaller government over big, a conservative trait, while I am more liberal in my regards towards my fellow humans. However, as I am lost on the spectrum my beliefs are susceptible to change, and do change. While I was once strongly Marxist, I discovered I do agree with its critiques on capitalism, but disagree with its implementation of socialism. A main issue for me in search of belief has been how to balance the common good with the liberty of the individual.

I have been called a conspiracy theorist; I believe 9/11 was an inside job, have a strong belief in the New World Order,  and believe America is crumbling into a state of fascism. However, I do not like the title quite a lot due to the negative connotation it has been given. Instead, call me a revisionist and a studier of the alternative.

I am an individual whom wishes to fight for change, namely in America. Many aspects of society worry me; the limiting of our rights and freedoms, the strengthening of the police state, the War on Terror, and globalization. Monnies are being sapped from the American economy and if action is not taken America will experience brutal hardships and a more totalitarian government.

I love real hip-hop; its a form of art to me. Its passion and life experience poured out onto a suiting beat (when its in its true artistic form, which is rare). I am saddened the industry has been taken over by greedy capitalists. Hip-hop began as a movement to fight an unjust system, but now its MCs are part of that unjust system.

I believe strongly in marijuana legalization. It was made illegal due to flawed studies as well as racism and prejudice. Millions already enjoy the substance, and keeping it illegal simply fuels the endless and flawed war on terror, punishes individuals choosing to use one of the safest recreational drugs, and represents the Government overstepping what its boundaries should be.

I’ve covered a lot, but there is much more that needs to be. Much of the topics in this post will be expanded upon later.

Thanks for reading,

AL
