Pathetic Crew of Republican Candidates are Big Government Drones

Unfortunately, CNN excluded one of the few imaginative voices in the Republican Party, Gary Johnson, from Tuesday night's debate.  Of the candidates present, only Ron Paul had anything to say in support of freedom and against socialism.  Cain's 9-9-9 plan, which would impose a sales tax on lower income people, is cruel. Rather than think of new methods of taxation, Republicans should be thinking of new ways to restrain spending.  Ron Paul was the only candidate at the debate who is not a socialist.

Ron Paul has a plan to terminate five cabinet positions:  the Departments of Energy, Housing and Urban Development, Commerce, Interior, and Education. He has also proposed to close a large number of unproductive military bases in places like Spain and Korea that do not protect the United States.  None of the other candidates was willing to discuss these proposals when Paul brought them up.  Instead, they remain loyal to a dishonest Federal Reserve Bank system that has sucked working Americans dry financially.  That Main Street Republicans support any among this bank of candidates is an indictment of the democratic process.

I can see why Comrades Gingrich, Romney, Santorum, Cain, and Bachmann remain silent about the Departments of Energy and Education.  Since they were established, education results have collapsed and energy costs have exploded, and neither agency, which together employ thousands of unproductive bureaucrats, has anything useful to say about either subject.  But this topic was avoided. To socialists like Gingrich and Romney, the Department of Education is a necessity.    

Mr. Cain, a former Federal Reserve official who has participated in the legalized theft involved in the bailout and the central bank-based fractional reserve system, offered a defense of  Wall Street, a socialist cancer on American capitalism.  Mr. Cain has participated in a racketeering organization, and his appeal to Republicans suggest a profound stupidity and incompetence among rank-and-file Republicans and the inept media that they consume, specifically including talk radio.

Except for Ron Paul or Gary Johnson, voting for a Republican in 2012 will be a wasted vote.
