Healthcare Legislation and a Potential Ron Paul Presidential Run in 2012
The health care legislation passed by Congress today is a disgusting socialist and fascist bill, and a monstrous assault on human liberty and sound and truthful economic/financial analysis. Particularly disgusting is the underhanded procedural method used to pass the legislation, especially given the apparent significant, actually majority public opposition to the bill.
If he runs for president in 2012, Congressman Ron Paul, or whoever carries his standard, should make this legislation a major issue. Congressman Paul should campaign that he will act with all the power of the presidency to attempt to repeal this legislation in its entirety, no qualifications, no questions asked. I believe that this would be another principled manner in which he could strongly differentiate himself from the liars, hypocrites, and statists that comprise the other potential Republican and Democratic presidential candidates.
What other potential Republican or Democratic presidential candidate would support this total repeal and have the integrity to attempt to implement it? I believe none.
