I can't vote for Ron Paul he is Unelectable
I will never vote for Ron Paul for several reasons. I know that a lot of his supporters are good patriotic people that mean well. I agree with most of them on a lot of financial issues. But, Ron Paul is not the savior that they seem to think that he is.
Ron Paul's radical Government cuts
Ron Paul’s policies would tear this country apart. Do you want to see the Divided States of America, then vote for Paul. Do you want to see half of the federal government torn apart upsetting federal employees the way that Wisconsin upset teachers last year? We will have riots on the streets, and a possible declaration of martial law if Ron Paul is elected. Can you imagine the Wisconsin protests on a national level? Think about that before you get all gun ho about Ron Paul eliminating half of the federal government like he has promised. It will be a mess, and I would not be surprised to see bloodshed. We do need to roll back some government, but allowing a ideologue like Ron Paul to go crazy uncle on the place could have devastating results.
Wisconsin Riots would be national under Paul
Ron Paul's reckless decision making
If you want to support a man that undermined John McCain and helped Barack Obama get elected, then vote for Ron Paul. This is an example of how reckless Ron Paul is. Rather than picking his battles and telling his supporters that they should oppose Obama and vote for McCain for the good of the country; Ron Paul tells them to vote third party. Is this a patriot? Is this a man that you trust to make wise decisions? Since Ron Paul decided that he wasn't going to support the Republican nominee --guess what-- I won’t support the Republican nominee if Ron Paul gets the nomination. We call that blow back. He still has not ruled out running third party either. That would be another tactic that Ron Paul could use to help Obama win his re-election.
Ron Paul wants Legal Heroin
If you want to see drugs legalized then vote for Ron Paul. If Ron Paul has his way the US government will allow drugs to flow freely into our country. Another one of his great ideas (note sarcasm)! Look at cigarette usage. Is it down because of government restrictions? Yes, a lot of people quit smoking once cigarettes were heavily taxed and they became socially frowned upon. Ron Paul cannot see past his extreme libertarian ideology to see the dangers of drugs. He wants to go in the opposite direction and make drugs less expensive and more socially acceptable.

Ron Paul will destroy our infrastucture
If you want crumbling interstate highways (repeal of federal tax on gasoline) with no government money then vote for Ron Paul. He rarely uses the interstate highway system anyway, so what does Ron Paul care? Ron Paul is a 30 year career politician that is too busy voting no on everything to travel by car. This career government employee spends millions on charter flights, so you better send him more of your hard earned money. He envisions an America where we take private trains to travel and drive on toll roads if we can afford it. He is from Texas, what does he know about road repair? We have freeze and thaw cycles up here in the north. Sometimes a road needs to be repaired after only a few years of use. Do you think that these private companies are going to keep their roads repaired? Do you think that government officials that are bribed with campaign money will force them to pave their roads?
You can travel on Toll roads and Trains
Ron Paul is a 30 year political expert when it comes to skirting the tough issues
Always skirting the issues by pawning them off on the states, Ron Paul uses that tactic on immigration too. Carefully not to lose the support of Mexicans, Ron Paul will not say that he is against immigration. He will however state that he does want to take education and welfare away from illegals. Since he wants to take welfare away from Americans, who cares that he is going to take it away from illegals? We have high unemployment right now; I think that we can find our own vegetable pickers. Ron Paul disagrees. Ron Paul is still supporting “legal” immigration, and he is against protecting the border with a fence. John Stossel asks in an interview “Would you deport the millions that are here already” and Paul responds “I don’t think that you could find them.” That is a great way to skirt the issue Mr. Paul, never give a straight answer. He continues saying that we would deport criminals, and welfare recipients if they show up to collect their check. Wait a minute; he just said that he would get rid of welfare, so when are they going to show up for it?
Ron Paul doesn't want to end wars, he wants to end America's influence in the world
Ron Paul wants to eliminate America’s military presence around the globe. We need bases. Do you think that Japan and South Korea will side with America if we leave the region and China decides to strong arm them? Should we patrol for pirates that attack ships traveling along international trade routes? Should we have a presence in the Middle East to ensure that our flow of oil is not interrupted by a fanatical Iranian State? Paul will say that we are only experiencing “blowback” because he is a blame America first kind of guy. He thinks that America is to blame for most of our international problems. Ron Paul thinks that if we grovel before our enemies and do as they say, they will like us and trade with us.
We dropped a couple of big bombs on Japan and they aren't threatening us. Where is the blow back from them? The way that you stop any of this supposed blow back is to hit your enemies back harder. Russia has been meddling in the middle east forever; where is their blow back Paul? It doesn’t exist. What we are experiencing is a Muslim hatred toward America for supporting our alley Israel. How would Paul fix that? He skirts the Israel issue by saying that he would cut off all foreign aid, including aid to Israel. He also voted for the attack on Afghanistan even though he keeps on talking about ending these "wars" that he authorized.

This is what blow back is. I have learned well from Ron Paul's supporters
This is my example of blow back right here. I wasn’t going to write anything about Ron Paul, but his supporters are so obnoxious, that they drove me to writing out my objections to Ron Paul. There are more, but this is getting a little long. Oh, and comments are going to be EXTREMELY censored. If you are a Ron Paul supporter do not waste your time writing a page of comments because no one will ever see it. If you keep it short and respectful and I follow you or you follow me then I will allow a comment in defense of Paul.
