Default Blueprint for change

If you take the time to read this, you will find that a large number of the things that I see peoople on this site complaining about and saying we need to do are right here in the plan. Put aside your prejudice long enough to read it. If you like what is in there but still dislike the candidate, send it to your favorite candidate for consideration. I don't care who gets elected as much as I care what happens after they do.....

I've read through about half of it so far.

Taken individually many of his ideas sound like good ideas. But taken as a whole I just start to see "more government, more government, more government"

I like the part where he is going to make the Insurance companys richer, they need more money. I just can't wait to get the tax bill on that.

Thats what I thought reading it.

My question is, why is he waiting to be president? As a member of the government, he is allowed to try and get new laws made.

I have to laugh that laugh you have at a bad car wreck every time some one says Obama is what we need to change our country, but a vote for Ron Paul is a wasted vote, the country is getting flushed and we are all pulling the handle.

Who is the "government"? The people.

All that founding language BS aside (since you guys hate it so much), I didn't hear any of you bitch when Bush started funding an Office of Faith Based Initiatives.....

Yes, and when one group of "the people" decides that they need to be in control of what the rest of "the people" are doing I get worried.

And of course you didn't hear us bitch about that, that happened before this web site existed. And like i said, not all his ideas are bad, but most seem to be moving in the direction of more government and more government control of our lives.

it's definitely not a wasted vote. because when whoever is in the white house you can bitch all you want. if you vote for any of the candidates and they happen to win, WHEN they fukc it all up, you have every right to be pissed off. you didn't pick the winner who is the loser in office.
