Ron Paul will be 77 if he wins the Presedential Election (assuming he gets the Republican's nod) - will this be an issue? The job is a very difficult one for a young man in his prime, what will it do to Ron Paul?
I'm not commenting on his ability to rule - I just wonder what an 81 year old Paul will be like after 4 years in the hardest job in the world.
(Ronald Reagon was the oldest president at inauguration - at 69.)
It's not age that's Paul's problem. It's the fact that he's unpresidential. This is how both JFK and Reagan triumphed over the opposition. They looked amazing on television - charming, articulate, eloquent - presidential.
Evan, did you catch Ron Paul's latest endorsement? Not bad for a 76-year-old!!
1-17-12"The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell" Reports that the "Pimps and Prostitutes Coalition" is endorsing Ron Paul for President
As if Stephen Colbert's SuperPac doesn't provide enough humor to the current shootout for the Republican nomination, Lawrence O'Donnell reported tonight that the Pimps and Prostitutes Coalition has endorsed Ron Paul for the nomination. Dennis Hof, proprietor of the Midnight Bunny Ranch in Nevada, who appeared with two of his "bunnies" on O'Donnell's show said "We're pimpin' for Paul." Cami Parker, former Hustler centerfold, and Caressa Kisses said they believe Paul will do a wonderful job for the country because he supports states rights for prostitution and because he "wants to keep the Internet free."
Gladstone became Prime Minister for the fourth time at 82, and served two years. He died five years later. So with the adances in medical science since then it is perfectly feasible for Dr Paul to serve 8 years.
Gladstone was interested in reforming prostitutes and trawled the London streets looking for prostitutes to help. This decency was misunderstood. So in some areas Dr Paul should not emulate Gladstone.
Legalizing Prostitution actually would be a great service for women's rights.
NO - I'm not saying women should be hookers.
But when they choose to do so, they don't have to have an abusive pimp beating them. The link I posted earlier in this forum shows that, when legalized, things can be dealt with very humanely and safely.
