… but if he does what he believes in, we could be in deep trouble.

Yes, he’d be my choice over Barack Obama, and if he makes it I can only hope that a Democratic congress would block him from doing stupid things. Like killing Medicare and Social Security.
Indeed his view that people should be allowed to die if they choose to opt out of health insurance is just one of his dumb ideas. What if they want it and choose not to remove food from the table so they can afford it? What if that person dies and leaves kids behind? What if no benevolent doctor or rich donor steps forward to help?
What if they want it but all insurers refused his pre-existing conditions, as was the case with Ron Paul’s aide who died as a result?
Should our government not be our last ditch provider?
Thank God we have a congress, corrupt as they are and though there’s many I’d like to see “Ron Pauled.”
On Social Security he’d support a bill eliminating it, and give him a Republican congress and it’s a done deal. Yes it needs the cap removed, but that’s better than forcing geezers to stay in a job market that can’t support them. It surely will drive wages down even further. Let’s save this system that we’ve all paid into and not put the elderly on the public dole (which will prove as costly or more).
Oh yea, let’s privatize it as the R’s want and turn our cash dollars over to the bankers to watch over!!!
I do agree with him on the cause of our wars. Al-Qaeda is not upset because we are successful, they are mad because America is poking it’s nose into their business and invading their country. All while if we kept our troops home they’d fix the problem on their own (read that: Egypt and Tunisia).
So what are our choices?
Yea, anybody but what we have, and we can only hope that James Carville‘s message gets through. Obama has failed and he should indeed “panic,” and even opt out of 2012. Bernie Sanders or Hilary Clinton would do better, and even Ralph Nader. But we can only hope.
I expect the far-right-wingers like Rick Perry and Michelle Bachmann to flame out; maybe even Mitt Romney of ObamneyCare fame.
My favorites? John Huntsman, Gary Johnson or even Rudy Giuliani. Anybody but Barack Obama!
Unfortunately, winning the next election is more important to the wacko Boehner/Cantor Republicans than fixing the nation’s economy, and the worse it gets the happier they are. It is they who must be defeated so our nation can return to sanity.
