Someone raised this question today. Why has Ron Paul served in the congress for 25years? And is running for president, again…
And when I thought about it- I realized I had no bloody idea. In 25 years in congress he accomplished nothing- the only bill he proposed that got passed was some minor bill relating to the sale of a piece of federal property in his district.
And the man does not believe in the federal government- so why has he been there so long? And what does he hope to accomplish as president? The president has no authority to make law. Yes, he would have power to isolate the US in international affairs. He may even be able to order many government agencies to go hoe/stop doing their jobs.
Really- the more I look at his agenda, and what powers the president actually has- it increasingly seems he would create a constitutional crisis, and possibly impeachment or even charges of treason.
I really do wonder now just what it is this man thinks he has been accomplishing over the past few decades, and just what (and how) he thinks he would accomplish anything more as president?
