$10 million dollar taxpayer bailout at Bain that was never repayed = the only reason I need to avoid Mitt Romney.
If you believe Rick Santorum is not Corrupt - then I've got an acre of ocean-front property to sell you in Colorado...
Just before the voters of PA kicked him out of office, Santorum accepted more money from lobbyists than anyone else in congress. In his final year, he got more than Hillary Clinton and Tom Delay combined!
Rick Santorum was one of The Most Corrupt Politicians in Congress according to CREW - on that SAME list there were multiple Democrats, proving CREW was not a democrat-biased organization!
11 Pages of Hard Evidence of Rick Santorum's Corruption in Congress:
Taking money from corporations to pass bills, Being a Senator in Pennsylvania and living in virginia, Taking money from schools to put his own children through private school, etc. etc.
I've noticed a lot of people have a problem with Ron Paul because he criticized the Osama Bin Laden killing recently.
But if you're one of these people I suggest you ask yourself - WHY did he criticize this?
Was it because, as many posit, he's an anti-war apologist? Well, simply, no: he actually introduced a bill for taking out Bin Laden via letters of Marque and Reprisal - which is the Constitutionally legal way of dealing with terrorists and has been all the way back to the Barbary Pirates, I might add - but the bill wasn't allowed to get past committee (the bill was H.R. 3076 of the 107th Congress).
He clearly wasn't against taking out Bin Laden - so why DID he have issue with taking out Bin Laden?
Because we didn't kill him soon enough.
That's it people - because the members of congress responsible for blocking his bill to take care of bin laden sooner rather than later chose to let it sit in committee and ignore it.
That's the difference between Ron Paul and everyone else - not just that he's the only candidate with a real plan to fix the economy, not just that he's the only serious candidate with military experience, not just that he's the only candidate with enough independent support to win the nomination and not just because he's the only candidate willing to lead by example by cutting his salary, as president, to match the average median income. The difference is that he's the only candidate willing to follow the law - the constitution - and go to war Only when it's necesary, Only when it's declared by congress (as required by Article 1 Section 8 of the constitution), and Only when a sure plan has been devised to go in - win - and get out with as little human life lost as possible.
So if you want more of the same corruptable politicians who would continue the clearly failed policies of the past - and continue a war that has seen the deaths of 10's of thousands more Americans in 10 years than have EVER died from Terrorist attacks - then, please: vote for Santorum, Gingrich, Perry, or Romney in the upcoming Primary.
But if you want a statesman who will put the interests of the American people before his own and see our economy fixed and our wars won - then Elect Ron Paul for president.
