12 Reasons Why Ron Paul Is Very Different From Most Of The Other Contenders For The Republican Presidential Nomination In 2012

The American Dream
Feb 9, 2011

Even though most of the potential contenders for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 have not formally announced their intentions yet, the truth is that the race has already begun.  Just look at all of the Republican politicians that have scheduled visits to Iowa.  Potential candidates are gearing up their campaigns and it should be one of the most interesting primary seasons in ages.  But is there anyone in the field that is really that much different from George W. Bush and John McCain?  Is there anyone that is not just going to trot out the same tired old ideas?  Is there anyone that would actually do something substantial about government debt?  Is there anyone that actually wants to shut down the Federal Reserve?  Is there anyone that would actually work to restore our civil liberties?  Well, the truth is that most of the potential Republican candidates are virtual clones of George W. Bush and John McCain.  There are very few in the field that offer any hope whatsoever.  But there is one man that does stand out as being very different.  His name is Ron Paul.

Is Ron Paul perfect?  No, of course not.  Nobody is perfect.  But at least Ron Paul is against a lot of the nonsense that went on under George W. Bush.  At least Ron Paul would fight for our civil liberties.  At least Ron Paul is courageous enough to publicly oppose the Federal Reserve.

When you look at the rest of the potential Republican candidates for 2012, most of them are very, very similar.

What the Republicans need in 2012 is someone new and fresh.

The following are 12 reasons why Ron Paul is very different from most of the other contenders for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012….

#1 Ron Paul Is Against Big Government

For decades, nearly all Republican politicians have given wonderful speeches about the dangers of “big government”, but when they have gotten into office nearly all of them have supported the expansion of government.

For example, George W. Bush gave speech after speech in which he railed against the dangers of “big government” and then he went out and expanded the size of government more than any other president that had ever come before him.

Well, Ron Paul is one of those rare Republicans that is actually not a RINO (“Republican in name only”).  In fact, there are so many RINOs running around that even the word “Republican” has become a bad word to many people.

But when Ron Paul talks about smaller government he actually means it.  Just take a look at his voting record over the years.

Not only that, but Ron Paul’s son, U.S. Senator Rand Paul, just publicly proposed 500 billion dollars in spending cuts in the Wall Street Journal.  Both Ron Paul and Rand Paul are men of their words.  If Ron Paul became president, we would finally have someone in the White House that would actually be serious about smaller government.

#2 Ron Paul Wants To Shut Down The Federal Reserve

Who wrote a book entitled “End The Fed”?

Oh yeah, it was Ron Paul.

Who spearheaded the push to audit the Federal Reserve during the last session of Congress?

Oh yeah, it was Ron Paul.

Did you know that the Federal Reserve has never been the subject of a true comprehensive audit since it was created in the early part of the last century? The reality is that the people of the United States have a right to know what is going on over at the privately owned central bank that has almost complete control over U.S. currency and banking. The Federal Reserve played a leading role in creating the horrific economic crisis that the U.S. is currently experiencing, but right now the Federal Reserve has very little accountability to the U.S. Congress or to anyone else for that matter.

Ron Paul wants to fundamentally change that.

So how many other potential Republican candidates have come out and declared that they want to shut down the Federal Reserve?


#3 Ron Paul Wants to Abolish The IRS

Talk about a great idea!

The truth is that we do not need a personal income tax and we do not need the IRS.

In fact, the U.S. got along just fine without a personal income tax for most of our history.

Ron Paul wants to permanently get rid of the IRS.

So how many other potential Republican candidates are proposing that we abolish the IRS?

The silence is deafening.

#4 Ron Paul Would Enforce Our Borders

Many Republicans talk a good game about enforcing our borders, but very few of them ever actually do anything about it.

Ron Paul is different.  Ron Paul believes that we should stop the endless flood of illegal immigrants that is coming across our borders.  He would be the first president in generations that would actually do something real about this problem.

Ron Paul is against amnesty for illegal aliens and he also believes that children born in the United States to illegal aliens should not be automatically granted citizenship.

Illegal immigration is a national crisis and we need a president that would take this issue seriously for a change.

#5 Ron Paul Is Against Globalization

Nearly all of the potential Republican candidates for president are in favor of the globalization of the economy and nearly all of them love all of the free trade agreements that the United States has agreed to.

Well, Ron Paul is different.

Ron Paul would put the breaks on a lot of this globalization.

Ron Paul is against NAFTA and thinks it should be repealed.

Ron Paul voted against CAFTA.

Ron Paul voted against the U.S.-Australia free trade agreement.

Ron Paul voted against the U.S.-Singapore free trade agreement.

Ron Paul voted against the U.S.-Chile free trade agreement.

Ron Paul has voted to withdraw the United States from the WTO.

Not that Ron Paul is a total protectionist either.  But the truth is that he would take much more of a stand against the globalization of the world economy than just about any other potential Republican candidate for president.

#6 Ron Paul Was Against The Wall Street Bailouts

At the same time that George W. Bush, Barack Obama and John McCain were all running around promoting the Wall Street bailouts during 2008, Ron Paul was one of the most outspoken opponents against the bailouts.

Ron Paul did not understand why countless billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars should go to Wall Street elitists.

In the end, many politicians wished that they had been against those bailouts.  They ended up being a really bad idea.  Large numbers of conservatives and large numbers of liberals were both disgusted by them.

Well, let us not forget that Ron Paul was right about those bailouts from the very beginning.

#7 Ron Paul Would Protect Our Civil Liberties

Ron Paul said that if we passed the “Patriot Act” and all of these other fascist police state pieces of legislation that we would lose our individual liberties.

Did that not happen?

But neither major political party is taking any action to repeal the Patriot Act.

Under George W. Bush, Americans lost huge amounts of liberty and freedom.

Many Americans had been hoping that Barack Obama would be much better in that regard.

Well, it turns out that Barack Obama has been even worse.  He has implemented some things that George W. Bush never would have been able to get away with.

Have you been to an airport recently?  It is completely and totally ridiculous out there.

Ron Paul is against these abuses and would fundamentally change the direction of the United States when it comes to civil liberties.

#8 Ron Paul Would Not Have The U.S. Trying To Police The World

Did you know that the U.S. has forces in 130 different countries today?

It is absolutely ridiculous!

We simply cannot afford to be the police of the world.

If we endlessly bomb, invade and occupy other countries and torture everyone in sight then people around the world are going to end up hating America.

Many Americans had been hoping that Barack Obama would change the course of our foreign policy when he was elected, but that did not happen did it?

Instead, Barack Obama is promising to keep at least some troops in Iraq for many years, and he has sent a lot more troops to Afghanistan.

Well, Ron Paul is different.

Ron Paul is the only potential Republican candidate that actually voted against the Iraq war.

Ron Paul would dramatically reduce the number of our troops deployed overseas and he would be determined not to interfere in the affairs of other nations.

That would be quite a switch, wouldn’t it?

#9 Ron Paul Is Against Carbon Taxes And The Global Warming Fraud

Tens of millions of Americans blindly believe in the environmental quackery of Al Gore, the “eco-prophet”, who is trying to “save the environment” by viciously attacking carbon dioxide. Ron Paul is one of the few members of Congress who is willing to publicly stand up and tell the truth that carbon dioxide is one of the fundamental building blocks of life on earth and that it is NOT causing global warming.

But the American people did not elect Ron Paul back in 2008. Instead they elected Barack Obama who wants to impose an insane “cap and trade” carbon trading scheme that would decapitate the U.S. economy.

Well, now that the American people have seen the insanity of what Barack Obama is trying to do hopefully they will be ready for something different in 2012.

#10 Ron Paul Is Deeply Concerned About The U.S. National Debt

Did you know that right now our national debt is $14,104,021,737,251.53?

Did you know that if the federal government began right at this moment to repay the U.S. national debt at a rate of one dollar per second, it would take over 440,000 years to pay off the national debt?

Ron Paul is one of the few members of Congress that actually has a voting record that shows a consistent effort to reduce government spending and government debt.

Many other Republicans talk a good game about these things, but their voting records tell a whole different story.

#11 Ron Paul Would Provide Real Leadership

The liberty movement in the United States desperately needs a true leader right now, and Ron Paul can provide the kind of inspirational leadership that most other Republican politicians simply cannot. Tea Party activists are inspired by Ron Paul. They respond to his leadership. The truth is that the Republicans have not had a truly inspirational conservative leader in the White House since Ronald Reagan. It is about time they had another.

Not only that, but most of the other potential Republican contenders have a ton of skeletons in their closets.  Ron Paul is one of those rare politicians that still has his integrity intact.

#12) Ron Paul Has Perhaps The Best Chance Of Defeating Barack Obama

Poll after poll has shown top Republican contenders such as Sarah Palin getting absolutely destroyed in a potential matchup with Barack Obama.

Most Americans view most of the potential contenders for the Republican nomination in 2012 as simply newer versions of George W. Bush and John McCain.  In fact, when you listen to most of them talk, that is exactly what they are.  They are just rehashing the same tired ideas that establishment Republicans have been pushing for decades.

If the Republicans want to win in 2012, they need something different.

They need someone that is a sharp break from George W. Bush and John McCain.

They need someone that can get us back in touch with the U.S. Constitution and with the principles that the millions involved in the Tea Party movement have been trying to restore.

So is Ron Paul the right choice?

That is for you to decide.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
