Jinxx, how do you eat while you're "fired"?|
You can't pay your support? Its set at the level of REQUIRED COSTS to raise a kid.
Tell me you're going to DIE if you lose your job.
Karl, you need to actually read Ron Paul's positions in some of his literature. He has specifically said that he will phase out Medicare and Social Security over time and he will pay for those remaining on it today by means of cutting the one trillion + we spend every year on foreign interventionism. Even if you disagree on cutting out lots of our foreign interventionism spending, there are still hundreds of billions that we can all agree on that go to waste. That's just one little part of his solution to deal with Medicare and Social Security.
Yes, I've read that, which is why its horse****.
First, on Medicare and OSADI (Social Security); it is a one hundred trillion dollar problem. Exiting "foreign entanglements" sounds nice but it is impossible for two reasons:
1. It doesn't free up anywhere near enough money.
2. We have no US-centric energy supply, AND IT TAKES TWENTY YEARS TO FIX THAT. You CANNOT withdraw from the global scene until and unless you have the ability to be 100% energy independant. PERIOD. To claim otherwise or do otherwise is to CAUSE the immediate destruction of the US economy - guaranteed - because as soon as you pull back the Muslims WILL hit the supplies, as they are fully aware that will quite literally KILL us.
As for something "based on the price of gold", uh, price in what? Tail, meet snake. So now we put our monetary value in the hands of international speculators? That's ****ing stupid. The only "hard money" base you can use as a nation is one that is wholly producable within your borders.
Britain and the US found this out already.
I've been over this a dozen times. THIS IS THE LAST TIME I'm going to repeat myself. You idiots who think I haven't read Ron Paul's horse**** are WRONG. I not only have read it, I've analyzed it and posted on it here in the past.
This Ron Paul crap is going to lead to outright bans. We fought this over his asinine proposals to destroy the United States when he was in the debates. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME CLAIMS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN DISPROVEN BECAUSE YOU ARE TOO ****ING LAZY OR STUPID TO USE SEARCH AND READ THE DEBATE. Its OVER on those points and the people involved in continuing this ARE LEAVING if it continues.
There is a limit to my patience repeating myself and it absolutely has been exceeded. Your laziness is not my call to repeat myself.
It IS how you get banned.
