Attention Americans (and non-americans)

Post by VikingBoyBilly »

Vote for Ron Paul. If you're in New Zealand or Austrailain or Netherlandian or whatever, come to America, become citizens, stuff the ballot boxes full of votes for Ron Paul, then go back to your own countries. Tell 'em VBB sent you! (and possibly his college sophmore social studies professor)

That is all.

He's standing again? Or is this a troll?

Also, I suggest making a general US elections thread if there isn't one already - tidier then threads like this.

But that would have to include options I don't want.
and people being entitled to different opinions.

If they leave a little open space at the bottom of the ballot, I'll be sure to write his name in.

Don't know that he can be trusted. We need someone we can trust far more than that.

Someone like this guy.

I have to disagree with you, OP.

First of all, Ron Paul isn't running for president. His son Rand is.

Second of all, the last thing we need is another republican in office.

Your vote is best placed on Bernie Sanders.

Bernie:
-Never took money from lobbyists
-Wants to address the systematic oppression of POC in our nation
-Wants to raise minimum wage
-Will implement a tax to make the extremely wealthy pay their fair share
-Is strong in his Jewish faith, but certainly doesn't let it influence his politics
-Will end the systematic racism and oppression of minorities


Donald Trump is a clown, and I'm grateful to him for ruining the GOP's chance at ever winning. I like what Bryan Cranston said, about Trump "shaking things up" and raising some good debate despite the fact that he has idiotic policies and would make a terrible president.

BERNIE 2016!!!
SNIP... SNAP!

Wait... then who's Ayn Rand?

I don't claim to be an expert, but from what I can gather, Ayn Rand is a woman who's responsible for a lot of modern so-called "libertarian" ideology. The most common quote from her I've heard is (this is paraphrased) "The smallest minority is the individual; if you don't defend individual rights, you cannot claim to be defending minorities."

Personally, I reckon the validity of that depends on how exactly one interprets it.

Yeah, Bernie Sanders is the first candidate in forever who might actually represent the average Joe.

It also looks like he has a decent shot against Hillary. If anyone here can vote, I'd suggest taking a good, long look at him.

I'll say it loud, I'll say it here, I'll say proud, I'll say it clear...

IF YOU DON'T VOTE FOR BERNIE THEN YOU ARE LITERALLY A NAZI!

There, I've said my say. :o

Alot of people talk like that, and they're completely serious. Sad. :(

I'd advise not to vote for Bernie. He'll turn America into Roib by the end of the first term. :dopefish

Oh sure, you say that NOW, but what happens after election day?

Got any proof for that? Or is that generic American capitalist anti-socialist postulation?
