As Mitt Romney appears to be the presumptive Republican nominee for president the time is at hand to unify the party behind the cause. While Gov. Romney and Congressman Paul have had a friendly primary race, they could not be farther apart on their policies. In order for Gov. Romney to win over these Libertarian-leaning Republicans he may need to adopt one or more of Dr. Paul's positions.

Here's a few of Dr. Paul's positions that most Americans can get behind...

Auditing the Federal Reserve to find out what they've been doing with our money for the last 100 years.

Cutting entire redundant expensive govt beaurocracies and consolidating responsibilities.

Only going to War with a Declaration as the Constitution says.

Bringing our troops home
from Afghanistan and the Middle East and placing them on our borders here at home.

Ending the unconstitutional income tax and the IRS by tax reforms and simplifying the tax code.

Adopting a more Libertarian state's rights view of social issues like marijuana, gay marriage, death penalty, etc...

Cutting military/defense waste and the BILLIONS going overseas in Foreign AID.

Ending the failed and expensive Nixon War on Drugs.

    Repeal the Patriot Act, repeal Obamacare, end all the wars and don't start any without a congressional declaration of war. Forget auditing the Fed, End the Fed, and end the IRS and the progressive income tax. I'd be happy if Romney did one of these, but I'm not getting my hopes up!

    Why would you want to embarrass yourself like this? Not only is wikipedia not a legal document but there is nothing that says we have to pay income tax. Again, why make yourself look so clueless?

    Lol, I love the way you're trying to save face now. It's funny. Here, try this.

    READ:

    The Constitution of the United States of America, Amendment 16:

    "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration." Passed by Congress July 2, 1909. Ratified February 3, 1913.



    Apparently since wikipedia isn't a viable source, if you want to fact-check, you can here at: http://www.archives.gov/exhib...

    Or, alternatively, you could accept the fact that I know the U.S. Constitution front-to-back and that we do, in fact, legally as citizens of the United States, have to pay an income tax.

    Wake the phuck up! Everyone, including my neighbors dog crap knows what the constitution says! It only gives congress power to collect taxes. Show me the document or legislation where congress has acted compelling anyone to pay income tax. You can't. You are really exposing yourself here.
  • Nate Hu... ConLibF... 2012/06/18 17:57:36 (edited)

    Actually, I have shown you the document/legislation... twice now. I even quoted it word for word for you.

    Did you ever go to school?

    An Amendment to the Constitution must pass through both Houses of Congress and be ratified by a large majority of States before it comes into effect. And yes, Amendments are very much considered to be part of the Constitution, which, I might add is considered the "Supreme Law of the Land" here in the U.S., ... to everyone except apparently you.

    The sixteenth Amendment grants Congress the power to collect an income tax. Unless you want to pass another Amendment repealing that one, you should probably accept it.

    "To *lay* and collect." As citizens we must pay any income tax they choose to levy.

    2) Ending the Patriot Act, the NDAA, and other infringements on freedom in the name of security.

    I'd say bring the troops home from most places, and particularly the entire middle east. There should be tax reform, though I'd probably disagree on the details. We should reign in the FED and get the bankers out of control. We should end the war on drugs. I think Paul's monetary policy is awful.

    actually, ron Paul does not want to end the Income Tax, he wants to get rid of the IRS and institute the Fair Tax which is much simpler, and much more fair and eliminates loop holes that many people current abuse.

    The fair tax is expensive and totally unfair. It increases taxes for people who need to buy things like the young and cuts taxes for people who can buy outside the country or don't need to buy. It is a scam.

    He doesn't give back a portion of his salary but rather what is left over from allotted expenditure money. He is the only congressman to do this. He also has never taken a taxpayer funded junket which some think is their duty to take for a vacation and call it something else.

    Ron Paul is not a supporter of the Fair Tax.
    The Fair Tax has been introduced in every session of Congress for over a decade and he has not sign on as a co-sponsor.

    Dr. Paul is, by far, the best man for the job as President of the United States. He would certainly have had my vote had he stayed in the race. Fact is, more people would vote for him when you look at the two other choices, Ron Paul 2012!

    Actually, Ron Paul is still in the race and NO GOP candidate has been nominated yet, not until August. There is also a major lawsuit in the works that will expose Romney and the RNC of election fraud which could completely change the race. You can listen to the details here: http://www.talkshoe.com/talks...

    you can like a candidate because you like what their stated point of view is. however, the problem with Paul he can't form a coalition of the majority. He can't win; appealing to some but not the majority is the same as not running at all

    You are right. One day the history books will tell of an election year that America had a chance of turning things around but ever saw the person who could have done that because in their eyes he would not win the election. So sad!

    If all those people who claim to have been Paul supporters would stay in the Paul camp and keep on working for write in status in all 50 states and territories then the truth would come out about his actual size of support. Unless the government suppressed the voter tabulations then the Paul votes would be in black and white for the world to see. We can not make a difference by falling in line with the one party system and the corporations that run it.

    He doesn't need to adopt any of Paul's ideas. Romney knows that the majority of the so called Libertarians and Independents out there are really just Republicans, and they will vote for him anyway.

    Ron Paul is a different breed of "Rebublican". He should have stayed in the Libertarian party and backed Johnson. At least some of his ideas make sense, none of Romneys do.

    No Libertarian endorses that crap you just spewed out.

    For one, each state has their own Commerce and Regulatory Commissions which would continue even after a Ron Paul Presidency because states have a right to as per the constitution.

    Second, Each individual state has their own Department of Education and each state can tax and fund along with county and local governments public education. The elimination of the FEDERAL Department of Education (which is redundant) would only rid of a corrupt, tax sucking entity.

    Third, Each individual state has their own EPA now and would not change, again being a state rights issue as per the constitution.

    Fourth, each state has their own Department of Welfare and Child Services which would continue providing those needed services.

    Fifth, all Ron Paul ever proposed was ending the illegal wars that have cost us billions of dollars and use that money to shore up Social Security and Medicare until a transition period where Social Security would be a opt out program for those that wish to fund their own retirement and those that do not would continue to receive their benefits. Also Medicare would continue during the transition period until reforms were completely in place. No one would be affected during transition periods.
