Response to Karmadillo (Original post)

58. What about workers?

Think they will get a better shake under Ron Paul's free market regime. Yeah, right. Good luck organizing. Union busting will reign supreme.

When poor folk get their services cut and real wages drop further, what do they do with their new libertarian life? Sell drugs?

Ron Paul's view of monetary policy is returning to the gold standard. Applying that today would make the Great Depression look like boom times. Does anyone really think that's better than Ben Bernanke's policy? Think again.

And I'm not even delving into the potty talk about jews and blacks.

I post a lot of Greenwald's articles here. I respect and agree with Greenwald when he lambasts Obama's foreign policy, but you have to swallow a lot just to begin to think about supporting Ron Paul. No thanks.
