Extreme change is required in order to get us back on the right track. Tinkering around the edges and trying to treat the symptoms rather than the cause may delay the failure for a while, but the outcome will be the same.
We don't need more government, we need less. But none of the GOP candidates, save Paul, wants to reduce government in any meaningful way. Paul is the only true conservative running for president between the two major parties.
All they talk about is in what ways they plan to use government to fix things. Some of the ways in which they want to grow government may be different from Obama, but in all the ways that matter, they are virtually the same.
Can the president wage war without an official declaration of war from Congress? Obama, Romney, Santorum, Perry, and Gingrich say yes.
Can the president kill or detain any American he wants without trial? Obama, Romney, Santorum, Perry, and Gingrich say yes.
Can the government artificially manipulate the money supply and interest rates and print money out of thin air? Obama, Romney, Santorum, Perry, and Gingrich say yes.
Can the government tell you what you can and cannot put in your own body under threat of violence? Obama, Romney, Santorum, Perry, and Gingrich say yes.
Should America police the world and bully other nations into submission to our ideals and interests? Obama, Romney, Santorum, Perry, and Gingrich say yes.
There is no difference among them in the areas that really matter, and more people every day are waking up to this reality.
