Many Americans are buying this whole "change" notion that Ron Paul is about, much like 0bama. Also, similarly to 0bama, this guy has no private sector experience. He doesn't understand how jobs are created, he's never ran a successful corporation, nor does he have much experience with the complexities of our financial and banking industries.
i never respond to spineless ’Anon’ questions…but i assume this is a common misconception among those unfamiliar with the candidate.
First of all…it’s hard to find legitimacy in your statement regarding ‘complexities’ when you are asking questions that blatantly reveal your profound laziness and ignorance. You claim Ron Paul has no private sector experience without fact checking or doing a simple Google search? Laughable…
In 1968, Paul and his wife relocated to Texas, where he continued his medical work. Trained in obstetrics and gynecology, Paul then began his own private practice. As a physician, Paul routinely lowered fees or worked for free and refused to accept Medicaid or Medicare payments. A 2002 newsletter of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) listed Paul as a member.
Not to mention this was only 6 years after he was drafted and served in the Air Force as a flight surgeon..
You dismiss the efforts of a common man with such disdain, it’s sickening. Ron Paul built, from the ground up, a respectable medical practice that helped countless Americans, and you write-off his accomplishments. You must prefer Mitt Romney’s experience in private equity, using his inherited fortune as leverage in his predatory corporate crusades. Private Equity firms like Bain Capital have their own place in America’s mixed economy, but that does not mean their business practices enhance one’s experience in the private sector more than entrepreneurship.
This also leads me to question your knowledge of the ‘private sector’ in general. If you knew anything about ‘job creation’ you would know that small businesses account for over 65% of new job growth over the last 17 years. So it is not ‘successful corporations’ that provide the jobs you are concerned about, rather, it’s people like Ron Paul.
Also, the primary obligation for a Corporate Executive is delivering maximum return to his shareholders, something that has nothing to do with being President. If anything the role of a Corporate Executive only compromises their morality by making them more susceptible to unethical business practices that carry over to the subsequent political career.
Finally, you must also fail to read anything i post on my blog…
'complexities in our financial and banking industries'
I’m insulted that you bring your baseless, regurgitated rhetoric to my attention. On a regular basis I take my time to craft a piece of writing in hopes that it might spark interest or be the catalyst for people like you to create their OWN opinion instead of mindlessly following the advice from your favorite TV personality. If you are truly concerned about the fleecing of the American taxpayer by the Federal Reserve or the global banking cartels- I would suggest voting for Ron Paul, since he is the only candidate to support auditing the FED.
Although this person was wrong on all levels, it is important to remind ourselves that we are products of our own environment. We have been conditioned for years to only see a person as 'Presidential' if they adhere to a certain status quo. This is proof that the misinformation about Ron Paul is widespread and rampant, and the only way to counter the misinformation is to have genuine conversation with friends and family about the future of our country and who will lead us. There is no vindication in proving someone wrong or correcting their flawed ideology, unless you open their eyes in the process…
On average, she said it’d take about twenty years to condition an entire population for the better or, the more popular option, for the worse….
The best active example she could think of that was applicable to the First World was consumerism. She said we’ve been taught to spend money on fruitless things for the sake of “entertainment” and “culture” so that two weeks later, that money will need to be made back.
Then it clicked in my head, and I mumbled, ‘So, on goes the machine.’ And she replied, ‘further and further'…
This is truly one of the most interesting conversations i have ever heard. Russell Brand joins author Daniel Pinchbeck and a group of like minded individuals to discuss, among other things- society, media, hollywood, indigenous cultures, drugs, and our relationship with earth, as human beings, going into the future. A really eye-opening video that shows a deeper more intelligent side of Russell Brand, and give you a glimpse into a rare symposium of ideas that i personally wish i could be a part of…
“Going up that river was like travelling back to the earliest beginnings of the world,
when vegetation rioted on the earth and the big trees were kings. An empty stream, a
great silence, an impenetrable forest. The air was warm, thick, heavy, sluggish.
There was no joy in the brilliance of sunshine. The long stretches of the waterway
ran on, deserted, into the gloom of over-shadowed distances. On silvery sandbanks
hippos and alligators sunned themselves side by side. The broadening waters flowed
through a mob of wooded islands; you lost your way on that river as you would in a
desert, and butted all day long against shoals, trying to find the channel, till you
thought yourself bewitched and cut off for ever from everything you had known
once — somewhere — far away — in another existence perhaps. There were moments
when one’s past came back to one, as it will sometimes when you have not a
moment to spare to yourself; but it came in the shape of an unrestful and noisy
dream, remembered with wonder amongst the overwhelming realities of this strange
world of plants, and water, and silence. And this stillness of life did not in the least
resemble a peace. It was the stillness of an implacable force brooding over an
inscrutable intention”—Heart of Darkness, 1899
