  •  I like Ron Paul a lot personally (0+ / 0-)

    Except for the taking wheelbarrows of gold ingots to market.  That's a bit crazy.

    But his logic about war is pretty solid and a lot of people go to him over Obama because from some people's perspective all Obama does is play the same tired game that most anti-war people want stopped.

    The problem is most antiwar people haven't become as hugely cynical as I have and realize there is no pure anything out there.

    Personally I would vote for Paul or Stein over Obama, but hey, you get what you can right?

    •  Jill Stein spews Social Security Propaganda (0+ / 0-)

      Sorry man but I love Stein and her pro environment views but when she went on CNN's Don Lemon show and said Obama wanted to gut Social Security and Medicare, I was thinking....  Um, Ms. Stein, where do you get your information?  Truthout.org or the actual Congressional hearings?

      Seriously, Ms. Stein ought to shut her mouth about Social Security and Medicare but talk about just about everything else.  That's the problem Green Party Presidential candidates have.  Unions don't support Stein and she's never going to get a single union supporting her no matter how hard she tries (unless the GOP is out of Congress for good).

      You are right about Ron Paul re: the anti-war perspective.  I wish more were like him speaking against the anti-war politics.

      But when I want a President, I want a PRESIDENT, not a deluded person like Ron Paul.  I don't care how nice or personally awesome a person is.  I care what they believe in and what they're going to do.

      •  Umm aren't progressive groups around the (0+ / 0-)

        country working hard to prevent President Obama from cutting Medicare and Social Security with the Republicans?  Why would they have to do that if they were confident he wouldn't do his "grand bargain?"  

        Stein rocks although some of her anti-Obama talking points can be a bit grating. As for being a good person, isn't that part of the reason why Obama was elected?  The other guy is an evil vulture capitalist who will sell his mother for a nickel while Obama is a good man at heart who will fight with your values?
