A blog dedicated to examining issues of international and national security, international politics, and international law (and anything else we want to write about).
I actually didn't know a single thing about Ron Paul until I saw this, so I hopped on to Wikipedia for a quick run-down.He wants to issue letters of marque to fight terrorism. Letters of marque!That is so bad ass! I would vote for that in a second. Set sail, privateers!
SethI'm voting for Ron Paul. The main reason is to try and get my social security money back so I can spend it myself.
I agree that it's a great video. I'd be curious to know whether the hip hop artists or rapper who wrote and performed it would honestly vote for Ron Paul. I also find it misleading that at the end the performer lists a few oil companies in poor light because Ron Paul's voting record is far from anti- Big Oil. He claims to be against oil subsidies, yet has never voted toward that end. On the "Creating Long-term Energy Alternatives for the Nation (CLEAN) Act", which would removes oil subsidies and royalties, in addition to starting a Strategic Energy Efficiency and Renewables Reserve, Ron Paul voted No. See final votes here: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2007/roll040.xmlWhile this is a great media and communications piece, I'd like to fact-check a transcript.
Oh come on Anon!You know full well why Ron Paul voted against that bill (or you should know anyway.) He's against ALL subsidies, not just against subsidies for people who aren't his friends and contributors.Later.
