I don’t really like talking politics, or religion, with most people. And it is getting to the place that talking health with some people is taboo too, for many of the same reasons as politics and religion. People get angry very fast. Blind fury. Incoherent, insistent interjections replace reasoned arguments. It is impossible to have a discussion. They have no ears to hear. I believe that most of the time the reasons for this is a feeling of vulnerability. Some people when they feel vulnerable retreat and some attack. You can’t have an exchange of opinions or ideas with either. I think I know why this happens, and at some time I might share that opinion, but for now, let’s just say that I don’t really like talking politics or religion with most people.
But we are in the midst of a political season. I have an opinion, and this is my blog. So, I’m going to share my opinion. I welcome other opinions, even strongly dissenting ones, but they have to be reasonably presented. I will delete all others.
And with that preamble, and a bit of fear and trepidation, I’m are ready to roll with a politics related topic.
I support Ron Paul. I know that is a shock for some people. But I’ve been following him for a couple of years. I’ve spent a lot of time examining his platform, and watching videos of him speaking before congress for a long, long time. I’d be willing to share my thoughts in future posts (or we could move the discussion to a forum), on the particular issues which seem to be a sticking point with those that are shocked. Just let me know in a comment, with specifics.
In the mean time, this particular person has done a pretty good job of outlining many of the reasons that I support Ron Paul. Here is the link:
