    [QUOTE=flushingjet;2199886]banning free trade with Australia is because they're a 3rd world country?[/QUOTE]

    Tell me....why was sugar excluded from the Australian Free Trade agreement? To protect US sugar prices? Wouldn't that be the opposite of a fuqing "free trade agreement"?


    The Australian Free Trade Agreement IS a protectionist policy. That's why Mr. Paul voted against it. You fell victim to the Retardicans policy of wording bills a certain way to belie their true meaning.


    Your one man crusade against Ron Paul is becoming disturbing. Bush is A-OK but Ron Paul is worse for this country than anything you can possibly think of? You seem to dislike Paul that Hilliary or any of the Dumbocrat candidates.

    I want to see one of your haiku-like diatribes railing against a democrat or two.

    That would please the Gods...

    ah, sugar!

    thats something we need to import
    tonnes more of?

    fredonians/rupaul fans use too much already
    look how hyper they get
    look at their rotten teef

    no wait thats meth

    free trade agreements between nations are important

    they break down barriers imposed by socialists
    who are their primary opposition
    (local unions, govt bureaucrats)

    the gop learned their lesson with smoot-hawley

    when your votes enable libs youre the same as a lib

    they protect intellectual property
    they open new markets for things like financial services
    they foster friendship and the aussies are grand anglo allies

    this agreement has led to a trade surplus for us as well

    guess its still bad!

    as for my ire,
    you havent been paying attention

    i hate stupid, unfactual comments
    the ronpaulstiltskinites are placing here after the libtards
    and narrowing their lead

    i hate democrats more than libertarians
    but the rupaul troofer division schlock troops
    are catching up on em

    i would never vote for either

    no candidate reflects all of my views
    i vote for the ones that represent most of em
    l ronpaul hubbard does not

    ron paul is miles behind mccain and i despise mccain
    and i despise huckabee almost as much as mccain
    they should all quit while theyre behind

    i would never recommend center-right
    voters to vote for a marginal candidate that wont win
    and takes away votes from a better candidate
    (psst, thats the bad dr.)

    except for libtards, they can scribble
    his name in any way they please,
    backwards, forwards, in bong water
    drippings, in tie-dye paint, w/e

    rupaul can finish in 2nd for all I care
    as long as he beats out the b***h

    nothings more disturbing the rupaul
    fanboy pablum spooned out by the
    sackless-ful

    and beware, i have a black belt in haiku

    1) Continuing the war against Islamofacists around the world (as much as we can, politically) ... probably not a popular opinion.

    2) Phasing out both Social Security and Medicare to be replaced by privatized systems (there still would still be a component of Social Security for the disabled though). In order to do that, private accounts would be phase in (this would not be overnight ... but decades). Also, in phasing out the current plan the age for both Social Security and Medicare needs to be raised (e.g. 1 year every 3/4 years). The simple fact is that both systems are actuarially out of balance (i.e. people have been getting out more than they put in ... that is why the FICA tax has been raised numerous times ... and the problem will get tougher if ignore due to people living longer)

    3) Comprehensive Energy Policy ... comprehensive is the key ... not some arse clowns turning off some of the lights in an NFL studio, etc. We need to drill more of our own oil, natural gas, etc. Open up coastal drilling, Alaska tundra area (a.k.a. ANWAR), shale oil production. Also, the government should promote alternatives where feasible (wind, solar, coal, regeneration plants, etc.).

    4) Dealing with the illegal immigration issue. Illegal immigrants should not receive any benefits and we should crack down on illegals and people who knowingly hire them.! As far as guest worker programs, I think that is a reasonable compromise. For security reasons, etc. we should know who is in our country, etc. Problems with the current problem is that the govt. doesn't care, imo, that illegals have fake soc. sec. cards because it helps prop of the pyramid schemes known as social security and medicare. However, the illegals cost society in health care, education costs, etc. Also, they are many illegals who work under the table and thus don't pay any taxes. I think a guest worker program is reasonable ... but I think the guest workers have to pay taxes a citizen pays (FICA, etc.) but are NOT eligible for the benefits of the programs ... because they are guest of this country. Also, I think the law that a child born of illegal in this country is a citizen is flawed (logically).

    5) Controlled Government Spending.
