U.S. voters miss best choice

After watching the last two debates between Romney and Obama, it's readily apparent that Americans have once again missed their opportunity to elect the only person who truly understands the principles of limited Constitutional government upon which our country was founded: Ron Paul. Once again, we're at the point of voting for the "lesser of two evils," or being stuck with another four years of Barack Obama.

I found it interesting that Romney correctly pointed out the fact that gas prices, food prices and pretty much everything else had risen in price since Obama took office, yet both he and Obama failed to point out that the main culprit of higher prices in nearly everything is the privately-owned, for-profit Federal Reserve. When politicians need money for whatever pork barrel project they desire in order to buy votes, they can simply sell a bond to the Federal Reserve.

When the Federal Reserve buys these bonds, they are literally creating money out of thin air. Those with first access to the newly created money, namely the politicians, receive the benefits. As the newly created money then circulates throughout the economy, it drives up prices for the rest of us. Of course, the bonds that the Fed has purchased must also be repaid, with interest, by us.

The U.S. Constitution says that no state shall make any thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts. An unbacked paper money system is the true cause of inflation, but don't expect Romney or Obama or any other politician other than Ron Paul to tell you this. Their vote buying and pacification of special interests depend on it.

HALLE --DAMN--LUJAH! Finally, a kindred spirit. The critical aspects of our economy and our country are not being discussed - currency, money supply, energy, foreign adventurism, foreign entanglements, environment, term limits, lobbyists. Politicians serve the multinational corporations that cough up the booty for them, they don't serve the American people.

I have a slight disagreement with the letter, we do not have a choice of the lesser of two evils, we have a choice of 2 evils. There isn't a dime's worth of difference between the missionary to France or the community organizer.

Make your vote count for something. Write in Ron Paul! Let the politicians know we are mad as hell and aint gonna take it any more!

The writer has a great point about what is wrong with the candidates and as usual he has grouped the whole nation as being fooled. There are smart people that believes in each candidate and their positions. Ron Paul, like each candidate has his great points and faults. At the end of the day the whole election process works at best it can for now. The constitution has always been a flawed document simply because it speaks in general terms about freedoms/rights and as time moves on those general terms has and will continued to be reinvented (that is why there is so many adjustments to it over the years). The choices we have this year is what THE PEOPLE choose and the system is the best for now. I'm not too concern with who wins because I believe my life is in my control to a greater degree (not 100 % but enough for my satisfaction). As for the country and it's future, God is truly in control of it like every other nation on the planet.
