Hi boys and girls! Carl the Condom here, Dr Monkey asked me to come by and explain to you why the Kucinich campaign has shot itself in the foot over this Ron Paul as Vice President thing.
You see boys and girls, Dennis Kucinich, if he is to be believed, represents the progressive thinking people across the country. He's pro union, he's anti NAFTA, he's for single payer not for profit universal health care for all, he's anti war, he's pro impeachment, he's pro active on the environment, he wants us to adhere to the Kyoto Protocols, and he wants to stop using war as an instrument of foreign policy. To accomplish much of what he wants to do will require us to keep the IRS and perhaps even to tax rich people and multi national corporations way more than they are today.
Now, let's examine what Ron Paul stands for. Ron Paul wants to abolish the IRS, he wants the corporations to have even more control over things because he believes government should be doing far far less than it is today. He wants to drag this country back to the '80's, the 1780's. He'd like to do away with things like OSHA, MSHA, Social Security, the NEA, Food Stamps, and all welfare, except for corporate welfare, in short he loves big business but he hates big government. That's basically what all Libertarians want. They want to keep all that money they pay in taxes and spend it on themselves. They don't want to let the government use that tax money to help the poor and the down trodden.
Bye now, I'm off to get stuffed. Let's hope the next politician who screws you uses a condom like me!
