Dr. Congressman Republican Libertarian Presidential Candidate Ron Paul is a Mixed Bag
(This post has been updated)
There's Something About Ron Paul.
It seems Ron Paul is the GOP presidential gash with panache candidate who has a certain je ne sais pas…
He's a Libertarian Republican...a mixed bag! He is a physician, a man who appears to be of integrity. He is a persistent defender of the Constitution and champion of civil liberties. All good, all good.
But what are his specific positions on American job outsourcing/insourcing, restoring high paying jobs to educated Americans who have watched them be sold to cheap imported, dubiously "skilled" foreign workers? Or strengthening public education, food and drug safety and raising the minimum wage? ABC reports:
"Under a Paul presidency the departments of Energy, Education, Housing and Urban Development, Commerce and Interior would cease to exist. Their elimination would slice about $179 billion from the federal budget and cut about 134,000 federal jobs.
Paul said his plan would not lay people off, but would transfer them to other departments until they retire.
Paul would slash funding for the remaining departments, including a 40 percent cut for the Food and Drug Administration and a 30 percent budget reduction for the EPA. The Department of Defense would see $832 billion disappear from its budget during Paul’s first term in office, most of which would stem from Paul’s plan to end all foreign wars and foreign aid."
