As a 30-something, single professional, the most important issue for me in the 2012 presidential election is the economy.
I have watched all the debates, and I have researched the records of all the GOP presidential candidates. I’ve also watched video from the 2007 debates to see what candidates Mitt Romney and Ron Paul were saying back then about the economy and health care. With that said, I fully support U.S. Rep. Ron Paul for president in 2012.
Rep. Paul was the only candidate in 2007 to predict the financial crisis. Today he is warning us about inflation and a potential currency crisis. I think we should listen to him. It is easy for candidates such as Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry to blame Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke for bad policy, but it is another thing altogether to understand and explain why Bernanke’s policy actions are bad for Americans and good for the megabanks.
I want a president who understands our economic problems and offers long-term solutions instead of temporary fixes and sound bytes. It is immoral and unfair to continue to kick the can down the road and place our financial problems on future generations.
Ron Paul agrees with this, and he has my vote.
