Re: 2012 Election: Is There Even A Good Choice?
Ron Paul would ultimately fail as a President. He has grand ideas, like limiting the government (which has its own detractors right away), and not being so aggressive, which goes against the Truman and Bush Doctrine's, but his biggest setback would be against the capitalist system itself, like the Bankers for instance. Mr. Paul is a revolutionary kind of person, and though I like him a lot and respect him tremendously, I don't think he's going to pull it off. It is a shame because Newt and Mitt are just cookie-cutter replicas of past models, and Santorum does not have the tools to lead a country like America. None of the candidates do, honestly. But the real problem is that neither does Obama. America has been mismanaged at the President position for many terms now. The way things are heading, the next election won't be any different, because either Mitt or Newt will be it for the Republicans, but they both have their own individual laundry list of reasons why they shouldn't be the next President of the United States. But so does President Obama. So in my opinion, just as it was in '08 for some, this election will be a "pick your poison" election.
