It's getting pretty sad if the prospects for President of the United States are so bad that we have to play a game called "Who would you vote for if you had a gun to your head?" I don't need a gun to my head, because there is clearly one candidate that is an easy choice for President. Ron Paul.
Yesterday on the Glenn Beck show, Glenn and his staff played the "gun to your head game". It's too bad that they feel so anxious about their choices for President that they would play such a game.
Several of them chose Rudi Giuliani. There are several Democrat candidates that I would vote for before I voted for him. Some others wanted Mitt Romney. A better choice, but still not the best one. Everyone is talking about the strangeness of the Mormon faith in conjunction with Romney. I rather think it's important to point out the strangeness of Mitt Romney's apologies for the Mormon faith and his backing away from some fundamental issues, such as abortion, homosexuality, and redemption.
I don't need a gun to my head to decide who to vote for for president. The choice is clear. Of all the candidates--Democrat and Republican--Ron Paul is the clear winner.
I talked to a friend last night who repeated the mantra "I would vote for Ron Paul, but I just don't think he had a chance." I repeated to her my counter-mantra, "If everyone who wanted to vote for Ron Paul (but didn't plan to because 'he doesn't have a chance') voted for Ron Paul, he would win.
So, Americans, take the gun away from your head and relax. Voting for president doesn't have to taste like cod liver oil in your mouth. Not if you vote for Ron Paul.
