Obama does nothing to help America, he still thinks like a senator (he does nothing), instead of thinking like a governor (doing something).

I'd rather have a do nothing president than a president that does it all wrong.

"He's introduced a "family bill" with goals to privatized the education system and allow racial, gender and sexuality discrimination happen within the schools, stores and in public. " 1984 bill. Discomfiting, Do you beleive force would change the minds and hearts of the people? I don't, because as you've seen through the Gay rights campaign, Conservatives which force their ideology on others end up causing conflict and tension. This is exactly how Ron was looking at it, the people cannot change by a forceful ruling by the government,only influence and ideas can change someone. Prior to contrary belief Ron is not a racist: https://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=8Rv0Z5SNrF4 I am going to make many seperate responses to many of your comments. :)

I know it was from 1980's but if you look at his voting records and how he's voted on bills, it's consistent belief system of that bill. Also, saying things like 7. “I wouldn’t vote against getting rid of the Jim Crow laws.”, when asked if he would have voted for the Civil Rights Act isn't really convincing he's NOT a racist.

I don't know how a "7" got there...

"If you're poor, you get no education." (I averaged from this sight: http://taxes.about.com/od/statetaxes/a/highest-state-income-tax-rates.htm) Okay, first of all, he'd abolish the income tax and any taxes that'd have to do with social programs. Any idea how much that'd save struggling families? Average income tax 6%, $1200 of a $20,000 dollar annual wage leaves them with $18,800. This is income tax alone, imagine if we depleted income tax and all the other taxes? A huge ideal of Ron is community building, so the poor would be helped through the churches and private charities. Just take this for example; I come from a middle class family, (*gulp*) extremely religious. Something fascinating is my father has, from my memory, *once* spoiled himself on a $600 dollar purchase. He hasn't been on a vacation in seven years! My mom has to work a side job for us to go on vacation because my father simply won't use what we've been blessed with except to provide necessities for us. (After a eleven hour work day he'll go do yard work or something for someone who needs it!) The rest goes to overseas charities, our taxes, to our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who are in need, and to our church. Our church runs a food pantry, mission trips overseas to orphanages, people in the community who are in need are not forgotten. The thing I find sad is a lot of charitable Liberals tend to believe is us Republicans, (I'm independent,) just like to hog our money. In my lifetime, I've seen nothing farther from the truth. (I think I just went on a rabbit trail here XD) So, in short, schools run by local levels would receive local donations.

*and all other taxes to social programs

Did you watch the video I linked? (defense against racism)

I went to look at the video and I pasted it in the URL bar and it brought me to the YouTube home page. What's the title?

Ron Paul also wants to privatize schools, so they do not have to teach the 'common core' crap. He wants the school to hold up to the kids' and parents' standards.

Ron Paul was never really interested me. Many of his followers acted so stupid with their wild hats & signs about "Revolution" ... Standing on street corners ... Screaming at people. LoL! Now, Ross Perot was different. Back in '92, Perot really fought the establishment with a serious campaign. I think he got 20% of the vote in the general election.
