Reader submission: War or Peace?

By Meagan Sharp

Is Iran in 2012 another Iraq like 2003?

First of all, the biggest danger for our country right now is that a president is going to overreact and we are going to end up bombing Iran. If we can live through the cold war, which we did, with 30,000 missiles pointed at us then we should sit back and think and not assume that we are going to be attacked! Look what happened with Libya! ISRAEL has 300 nuclear weapons so why are we making them out to be some poor defenseless nation? We have 45 bases in IRAN (not including submarines)! IRAN can’t even produce enough gasoline for themselves and we're worried about them obtaining ONE weapon? Politicians are building this war up just like they did Iraq. We do not need to get involved in another war people!

As if that crisis wasn’t bad enough, President Obama has made it very clear that he will not only ignore the US Constitution, but will refuse to listen to congress when they don't let him have his way. Obama ignores the US Constitution and Congress when it suits his purposes. He issues edicts without regard to the US Constitution and signs into law unconstitutional acts. He is blatantly inconsistent, and he continues to get your support???

Oh, and for those of you who think he’s saving the economy and lowering unemployment: Our national debt has actually increased since Bush was in office, to be specific, the Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency and has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office. As for unemployment, North Carolina has lost nearly 50,000 jobs since President Obama took office and the unemployment rate is 9.9 percent. In Charlotte, unemployment is even higher, 10 percent. In total, 450,000 North Carolinians are unemployed, up 13 percent since Obama took office and these are just TWO examples.

HOWEVER, just because I am completely against Obama being reelected I want to make it clear that I am just as adamant about Romney NOT being elected either. What Republicans don’t seem to understand is that if Ron Paul is NOT on the ballot, none of his supporters are going to vote for Romney. Ron Paul is the only politician that has a chance of beating Obama. If you vote for Romney and don’t vote for Ron Paul then you can blame yourselves for Obama’s reelection and be prepared for a socialist society.

SO PLEASE, vote for peace, not war; for restraint, not excess; and for civil liberties, not authoritarianism.

RON PAUL 2012.
