Newt Gingrich? Really? Newt Gingrich?

As I stated before my predictions for South Carolina, Im not very good at predicting things. But not in my wildest dreams would I have thought that there were enough suckers in South Carolina to allow Newt Gingrich to win, little own let Ron Paul finish in 4th.

As a result, I am starting to lose faith in the ability of our nation to save itself from implosion. The slow death our nation is dying from is completely solvable at this point. But it is as though the majority of Americans are wanting to slip into insolvency, wage multiple simultaneous wars, strip themselves of freedoms, and let the government control all of our lives. They continue to vote for establishment Neoconservative Big Government puppets.

Do people really value a snarky smart ass who is so arrogant and so self absorbed that he walks around telling people he will be the nominee and eventually the President. Are there really enough people that are so misinformed and easily swayed that someone like Newt Gingrich could actually become our President?

I just listened to Rick Santorum give his post primary speech and I was left wondering how roughly 20% of the voters in South Carolina could vote for the guy. He just went on and on about family and marriage for 10 minutes, and he is right, families are important. But what in the hell does that have to do with government? What in the hell does that have to do with being President? Is this a contest for the most likable person? I think that your stance on marriage and family values is just as important as Newt wanting an open marriage. I DON’T CARE!

What are you going to do to balance the budget now, not in 10 years, ASAP?
How much will you lower my taxes?
How much excess will you cut from the government budget?
What criteria will you use for asking congress to declare war?
What lobbyist and special interest groups stand behind you?
How will you decrease regulations, bureaucracy, and military waste?
How will you get the government out of our personal lives?
Will you treat all people fairly? Regardless of sexual preference, age, gender, race, or religious belief?
Will you protect human life? Not just from abortion, but from war also?
Will you reach out to the world with a hand of peace, or a fist of aggression?
Will you respect the sovereignty of other nations?
Will you stand behind the constitution and its amendments?
What steps will you take to eliminate the Federal Reserve system?
How many bills will you sign that give money to special interest?
How much foreign aid will you hand out to the world?
What will you do with the TSA?
Will you sign bills like SOPA? How about the NDAA?

There is only one candidate who correctly answers these questions.
There is only one candidate who has a proven track record on these issues.
There is only one choice for the future of America.
Ron Paul

Excuse any misspelling, poor grammar, or punctuation. I wrote this in a frenzy and don’t care to proofread it.

  1. You see, I agree with all you’re saying, apart from electing Ron Paul. The problem is that although Paul loves small government, he has a nativist streak, wants to destroy the Fed, and supports a gold standard. He’d be more palatable than Obama, Gingrich, Perry, or *shudders* Santorum, but I still prefer Romney over Paul.

      I appreciate the feedback, thanks for reading. What exactly is the problem with ending The Fed? Or the support of the gold standard? Are you aware that we were on the gold standard until 1971 when Nixon removed us because the Federal government couldn’t meet its foreign debt obligations accrued from our needless war in Vietnam? The dollar buys 1/5 of what it did prior to ditching the gold standard. These are topics that only Ron Paul is willing to tackle, Mitt is not my ideal candidate by any stretch, but would get my vote over Newt, Slick Rick, or Obama.

      I suggest you stick around my blog for a while I will have some good economics posts in the near future that I would like to see some feedback on.
