Most of you already know that I have decided to back Ron Paul for President. My reasoning is that I believe that the potential for an economic meltdown is high and that Ron Paul is best equipped to deal with such an event. He understands better than any other candidate the fiscal and monetary issues that must be addressed. If you believe an economic meltdown might be on the horizon, you too should be backing Ron Paul. If you still need a nudge, please watch this video which has two parts to it.
H/T to Classic Liberal for the video.
Now, I know that many if not most of you have serious problems with Paul’s foreign policy and I admit that it doesn’t sit well with me either. But if we can pack the House and the Senate with good conservatives, I think we’ll be alright.
Having said all of that, I know that the chances of Paul winning the nomination are small. The GOP establishment and the MSM are doing everything possible to ensure that Mitt Romney gets the nomination. The GOP establishment was behind Florida moving up their primary which has forced the other early primary to move their primaries up as well. This is a play by the Republican elites to help Romney win decisively and knock out any other competition. We need to do what ever we can to slow the Romney freight train down. If you haven’t already set on a candidate, you can still help get the word out to the voters in the early primary states that a Romney win means we can look forward to four years of Republican big government policies and this country can’t survive that.
As things stand today, it looks like Herman Cain has the best shot at slowing down Mitt Romney and the GOP establishment. The folks on Main Street are very turned-on by Cain’s 9-9-9 plan. Larry Kudlow has an article at Real Clear Politics I think you will find interesting. According to Kudlow Paul Ryan and a Reagan economic advisor, Art Laffer, both give thumbs-up to Cain’s plan.
Personally, I do believe Cain’s 9-9-9 plan would really jump-start our economy. Even so, I wold like to see some changes to his plan. I also have problems with Cain’s views on the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve is a big part of the problems our country faces today. However, in spite of my reservations about Cain, if he can derail Romney and if it looks like my man, Ron Paul, is not going to get the nomination, I will become an enthusiastic supporter of Herman Cain. I will, of course, be sending e-mails to Cain and his campaign staff trying to change his opinion on the Fed.
Bottom line, folks, we need to stop Mitt Romney. The GOP establishment and he MSM want us to believe that a true conservative can’t beat Obama. That is a myth pure and simple. We have the numbers and we can win with a conservative. Mitt Romney is not a conservative. So I’m asking all of you who are bloggers to post as often as you can with the message about your choice for president or if your still not ready to choose, let people know why you don’t support Mitt Romney. America is ready for a RIGHT turn.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
