MY greater fear is that the GOP will choose yet another status-quo, big goverment neo-con in the primary, and it won't even MATTER which party wins next year.Even if Paul wins the primary, Congress is still full of "status-quo, big goverment neo-con". "and it won't even MATTER which party wins next year."
I don't expect anything else.
Yes it is true that one man cannot completely "fix" the mess that is the current government.
However, that one office Can issue a series of signing statements that can remove or nullify MUCH of what has been done in the same manner for the last fifty years. The last "signing statement" would be the one removing the "signing statement" function from the office holder ad infinitum.
Also as "Commander in Chief" the troops overseas could all be "reassigned" and then "mustered out" of the standing army that our founding generation were so vociferously Against.
There are good things that COULD be accomplished IF the office holder is truly a minarchist and not just another brand of bankstah statist dupe.
Which I don't think Dr Paul is BUT I don't KNOW that for a fact.
The biggest problem is that I honestly don't think that Dr Paul has a chance to win and he is unfortunately getting tired of trying. [or so it seems]
