3 Reasons Why I'm Happy Ron Paul is Not Winning Any Delegates

Number one: Ron Paul is pro-life. STRONGLY pro life. He's against Roe v. Wade and believes life begins at conception (I don't). While he might believe that the federal government has no business telling what a woman can do with her body, I would not be shocked if a pro-life bill made it through congress (etc.) and to his desk, where it would be very possible. Sorry Dr. Paul, but your bullshit about how the government should be weak doesn't faze me.

"Pro-life libertarians have a vital task to perform: to persuade the many abortion-supporting libertarians of the contradiction between abortion and individual liberty...A libertarian's support for abortion is not merely a minor misapplication of principle, as if one held an incorrect belief about the Austrian theory of the business cycle. The issue of abortion is fundamental, and therefore an incorrect view of the issue strikes at the very foundations of all beliefs."


Number two: Ron Paul is strongly against universal healthcare. Dr. Paul, explain your theory to the thousands upon thousands of people that have to jump through hoops to get decent healthcare.

"I think we need to reject what we have--and most people agrees with that. But most everyone says we need is total socialized medicine, and I don't like that, because it doesn't work. We have had too many examples of that."

What examples? We never got a chance to see how universal healthcare would work in the U.S. Canada can do it, so can we.


Number three: Ron Paul is against a progessive tax rate, in turn, taxing the wealthiest Americans the most.

"...if you want to lower taxes and stop causing all the inflation, you have to change policy."

Lower inflation: good. Increasing debt: bad. Taxes pay off debts, not just corner cutting...
