Just wondering how all the Ron Paul supporters are going to vote in the general election.
I don’t like either candidate and had thought I wouldn’t vote, but I’m now wondering whether there’s a correct choice between the two. The economy appears to be rapidly going to shit, and while I don’t believe that either candidate is even capable of fixing the problem, I’m thinking that it will be better if these events play out while a Democrat is in office… if things go bad under a Republican administration, people will blame low taxes and free markets for whatever happens. If things go bad under a Democratic president, they’ll blame Republicans anyway, but at least is will be obvious to everyone how powerless liberals are to repair the situation.
So I might vote for Obama just so he’ll look bad. Then again, once universal healthcare passes, there will be no going back, and things will be permanently fucked. So what do you think?
