Who should be President and why?

3 years, 3 months ago

@Alex "People use planned parenthood as an excuse to not act responsibly" That is not true. Planned parenthood allows underprivileged women the opportunity and resources to act responsibly. I have been going there for sexual health services for 7 years, since I was 18. They have provided me and thousands of other women with free cancer screening, STD testing, and free birth control. It is because of them that I have been able to do the responsible thing and NOT get pregnant to begin with. They offer MANY MANY much needed women’s health services other than abortions. Please don’t criticize and organization you are not familiar with.

The question is…how in the world do you go about fixing “morals” without determining how people live their lives. I don’t believe one could make a law or create a fix for morals. It has to come from the individual. Do you put that ahead of economy and jobs? Morals are important…but morals don’t put food on the table.

Also..its not the job of the government to determine how people should live their lives. The government is the last institution we should get our morals from…ever hear of forced sterilizations?

morals should be found, not legislated. much more effective that way

@Evan
“Coupled with the fact that today’s political climate would almost certainly prevent a president from being able to accomplish the admirable (and shared) goals you listed, it’s no wonder that the only ‘legitimate candidates’ that we have to ‘choose’ from are delusional, power-hungry, inept, or all-of-the-above.”

Amen! That’s why Ron Paul’s stance for more freedom and less government control is very appropriate in my eyes.

@Alex
I agree. Lack of morale is the root of most problems. There are going to be these problems, but like weeds, they can only be taken care of from the root. People need efficient help finding morals, and when people have their morals, all things move much more smoothly I believe.

I honestly don’t care about who is president…thats just the tip of the iceberg…there are so many side agenda’s in place and in play for decades that there really is no way of cleaning up this mess. If I was President..I would hate myself after the first term because of all the BS I would have to shovel to the public! Our country is a machine that has been driven for so long by the wrong reasons that the idea of a cleanup is the same as the idea of seeing a unicorn in my driveway in the morning!!
