Legalizing and decriminalizing drugs and marijuana would put an end to all of these drug wars for good and forever!!
That seems quite over simplified. Good fantasy though. Have experience in this area do you? I don't think sending pot smokers to rot in jail is a cool thing .
And other druggies, depends on their actions. Pot smokers are not known to be violent. Never should Meth be legal.
The cost of health care and social services, including Police- would send us over the fiscal cliff in a NY minute. I don't think Ron would agree with you. Do you even know this man whose name you use?
You obviously have no clue as to economics. ANd how COULD you when you have never even had a job! This post shows to me you are a foolish liberal child. Ron Paul? not so much.

Nothing comes from Catholic ROOTS.
Catholicism is a BRANCH upon a much larger Tree.
Protestants are a Branch upon the Catholic branch.
I do not know if you have the ability to Picture a Tree in your mind, but a large Tree has many main Branches that come out of its trunk, these large/main branches have many smaller branches coming out of them.
It is possible on ONE BRANCH of a tree to have Lemons, Oranges, Grapefruit, Limes, Tangerines and probably a few I missed.
Although each of these will be on their own Separate branch, they will also be upon the same branch.
This is how it is with Protestants and Catholics.
The Branch as it comes off of the Tree of Religions of the World is the teachings of Paul, which has little branches but the Main Branch of the teachings of Paul becomes Catholicism. This is a very large Branch and has Many smaller Branches coming off of it.
One of these smaller branches that come off of the Branch of Catholicism is the Protestants.
The Roots are a LONG way back down the Tree.
The Catholics claim all Christians that worship upon Sunday as their Children (branches of their Limb), as they (the Catholic Church) claim to have Made Sunday as the day of Worship, They back this up with documents and Laws that they enacted declaring the first day of the Week (Sunday) to be the sabbath as the Mark of their Authority upon the earth, proving that they(the catholic Church) is god upon the earth, able to change what GOD created at the Creation.
They actually say these things,
They do not HIDE that they made Sunday the Sabbath, they CLAIM IT as the mark of their Authority, and claim all that worship upon Sunday as their Children, daughters, or smaller limbs upon their Branch.
A large Branch of a tree that comes out of the Trunk has many other Branches that come out of it.
This is what Protestant is as compared to Catholic.
A Smaller branch that comes from the larger.
Something you can not even Begin to understand is the TREE that has its roots in GOD has at minimum 12 MAIN Branches, Catholicism is but ONE MAIN BRANCH. There are 11 other MAIN BRANCHES.
Your tree of Life/Religion does not have Branches I think. If you were to Draw GOD as the Roots of A tree, and Jesus as the Trunk, and your religion as the branch your Tree would not look very much like a tree at all.
Try it, Draw a Tree with GOD as the Roots and Jesus as the Trunk.
It sometimes help to look at a picture instead of Words.
Draw a Tree, GOD is the Roots, and Christ is the trunk.

Catholic Girls
Frank Zappa (1979)
----------

A festive cyo party with crepe paper streamers, contestants for the broom dance, the hokey pokey, baked goods, & father riley making sure the lights don't go down too low...

Father riley and various party goers:
Catholic girls
With a tiny little mustache
Catholic girls
Do you know how they go?
Catholic girls
In the rectory basement
Father rileys a fairy
But it don't bother mary
Catholic girls
At the cyo
Catholic girls
Do you know how they go?
Catholic girls
There can be no replacement
How do they go, after the show?

Joe:
All the way
That's the way they go
Every day
And none of their mamas ever seem to know
Hip-hip-hooray
For all the class they show
There's nothing like a catholic girl
At the cyo
When they learn to blow...

Father riley:
They're learning to blow
All the catholic boys!

Mary:
Warren cuccurullo...

Father riley:
Catholic boys!

Mary:
Kinda young, kinda wow!

Father riley:
Catholic boys!

Mary:
Vinnie colaiuta...

Chorus:
Where are they now?
Did they all take the vow?

Father riley:
Catholic girls

Warren:
Carmenita scarfone!

Father riley:
Catholic girls

Officer butzis:
Hey! she gave me vd!

Father riley:
Catholic girls!

Warren:
Toni carbone!

Chorus:
With a tongue like a cow
She could make you go wow!

Joe:
Vd vowdy vootie
Right away
That's the way they go
Every day
Whenever their mamas take them to a show
Matinee
Pass the popcorn please
There's nothing like a catholic girl
With her hand in the box
When she's on her knees

Larry:
She was on her knees,
My little catholic girl

Chorus:
In a little white dress
Catholic girls
They never confess
Catholic girls
I got one for a cousin
I love how they go
So send me a dozen
Catholic girls
Ooooooh!
Catholic girls
Ooooooh!
(etc.)

Central scrutinizer:
This is the central scrutinizer...
Joe had a girl friend named mary.
She used to go the church club every week.
Theyd meet each other there
Hold hands
And think pure thoughts
But one night at the social club meeting
Mary didn't show up...
She was sucking cock backstage at the armory
In order to get a pass
To see some big rock group for free...

CATHOLIC TRADITION - Purgatory, nuns, popes.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS - None of these is mentioned in the Bible. It is a sin to add to the Bible.

Proverbs
30:6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

The pope is a man who takes upon himself honor which belongs to no human being. Even the very name by which he allows himself to be called (Holy Father) is highly presumptuous and blasphemous (see above).

One does not need the pope to determine what God's will is. The Bible says that God has given the Holy Ghost to each believer and that he (the Holy Ghost) guides and leads us into all truth. All a believer needs is the Bible and the Holy Ghost to know the will of the Lord. Popery has been treacherous, but worse, each pope has been the blind leading the blind. Jesus said that both will fall into the ditch. Catholics, come out of this system that cannot save and know Jesus for youself, intimate and up-close according the truth which is his word.

NOTE: Purgatory is supposedly a place where a person is purified of sins--even popes supposedly go there. The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the one that purifies us of our sins. Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.... When a person dies their eternal home is sealed--heaven or hell--no in between. Hebrews 9:27 ...it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

Your post is garbage!
Call me what you will and say what you want about me, but if you're an example of your candidate, then I pray he never becomes a government official!

Based on your attitude alone and taking into account the saying, "Birds of a feather flock together," I could only assume that this Ron Paul character would only assist in deteriorating whatever moral fabric is left of our nation, considering that even you refuse to merely show respect to others and their opinions and/or beliefs. If you campaigned for this Ron Paul character professionally, I'm sure you'd be fired.

I will admit this, though. If this Ron Paul character thinks, acts, reacts, and speaks, anything like you do, I'd love to watch him in a legitimate, political debate!

Have a wonderful day.

I noticed that in your post, you said, "God is love! God is NOT hate! Anyone that advocates persecution and violence is NOT a moral person at all! God does NOT change at all!" Apparently, you believe that "God" exists.

QUESTION: Are you a "'born-again' Christian"?

I ask, because for some reason, you just assumed I was a member of this "born-again" sect while falsely accusing me of loving war, so forth and so on.

Speaking, strictly for myself, I do not consider myself a member of any one of the myriad of Christendom's denominations. My religion is Mashiyachiym.

And for the record, it's written, "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment (Matt 12:36)." It's also written, "Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh (James 3:9-12)."

Take heed, believer of "God."

Ron Paul is a U.S. Congressman and just lost his 3rd? run for President of the U.S.A.

"when you see her, she is friend, WAR, she hit her head." It is in all caverns of a little blonde haried girl, the antz dont see the same so the eyes are just all blue. A Ant took me on a date as a child, the neighbor boys were pissed and began warring the ant hills, forbidding me to date bugs. I found that daisys were carnivorus after hours, and bumbles are loud ear shattering to the antz they hide, but went for rides on differnt insects that permitted and got to listen to Inchworm profuse tunes over a spiders which he was trying to attempt equilibrium but all insects and species were dying of starvation, SPiders had everything in order of specific survivals of life but inchworm played his strings louder and had more fingers for strumming spell binding tune.

If I was a musician I would say a Banjo player could keep up, but inchworms or vulgar and slanderous, so the human may turn vile and sitnky too.

I learned martial arts beignners course from the shadows and the trees. A few alien races in Middleton Wisconsin and the Magical Kingdom of "HI" on a stone. I was fiance to his Imperial Highness that was half human half elf and comes out of the stone to talk with me. He makes weapons for Elf species. All magic.

Most people pick the stones and put vinegar on it prematurely to see all the weapons and jewlery inside as micro-scopics. Now you know how rich people spend their time, BUt to leave it alone you get to take magic and weapons of time home. YOUR SIZE it will appear when it is time or when the warriors come out after 4 pm.-8 pam that is counsil time after that is war of the universes in our lands.

Nice life, I was exploited prematurely prior to death in movies and songs from DISNEY funds. TIme of Dead was read more then 2 times in my life, people I never met before went to prison and had all money recalled plus interest they did not have. over 21 brian chambers open on numerous speeds now, at 8 they counted 7 but nobody in my life to work on those levels so left me alone.

Im supposed to have a silver magnetic tailbone created for me, but in `1977 the Asian Dr working with the BRian SUrgeon at MEritier HOsptial could nto do it, I would be on computer 24 hours a day micro-chiped to create artifical equilibrium and balance, and he did nto know who his successor would be and did not want me raped or abused thru negligence and malpractice.

I have to undergo a non-surgical procedures of magnets and electirical current with a string down my spine, to sort and store information since my head is not attached to my spine it was dislodged, so to much energy leaks out and people think they are psychic and magic when I am around.

SO They gave me the GhostRiders,Banchees,Venegence Angles to track me and take away what people stole. PEople lifted in the air and were thrown by trees coming to life and hanging them then they thru them over 12 miles away. What a wonderful life so far it has been, I'm glad I have magical friends. Jesus as a statue at St MArys of the LAke of Waunakee Middleton areas, Mother Francis got to talk with him, he came out of the statue and beat up the PReist in 1975 he thought the church was haunted, she knelt to pray and cried I was laughing so hard, "CANT BARE FALSE WITNESS he isnt talking to us, lets go or do your nun thing whatever, but ive been told before." She wrapped her habit around our faces together and we ran out the church laughing like school girls while JEsus picked up the priest and choked him. I have fun!

Baptist aren't Protestant as they are 300 yrs older that Catholic. When one follows the outcast of the NT churches and statement of the Apostle John: Antichrist came out from among us; You can follow those folks to Egypt and on to Rome forming the Catholic church in the fourth century.
Catholics have murdered since their inception; only to escalate murder of Christians with the Inquisition.
Catholics claim everyone but them are heretics (cult)
"All sects of heretics are condemned and various punishments are appointed for them and their accomplices." --Pope Alexander IV,
"Statutes that impede the execution of the duties which appertain to the office of Inquisitors are null and void." --Pope Urban IV,
"They who bury persons knowing them to be excommunicated, or their receivers, defenders, or favourers, shall not be absolved unless they dig up the corpse; and the place shall be deprived of the usual immunities of sepulture." --Pope Alexander IV,
&#8206;"It is the bounden duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not the Popery in the Church of Rome there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name. It wounds Christ, robs Christ of His glory, puts sacramental efficacy in the place of His atonement, and lifts a piece of bread in the place of the Saviour....If we pray against it, because it is against Him, we shall love the persons though we hate their errors; we shall love their souls, though we loathe and detest their dogmas...."

One does not need the pope to determine what God's will is. The Bible says that God has given the Holy Ghost to each believer and that he (the Holy Ghost) guides and leads us into all truth. All a believer needs is the Bible and the Holy Ghost to know the will of the Lord. Popery has been treacherous, but worse, each pope has been the blind leading the blind. Jesus said that both will fall into the ditch. Catholics, come out of this system that cannot save and know Jesus for youself, intimate and up-close according the truth which is his word.
NOTE: Purgatory is supposedly a place where a person is purified of sins--even popes supposedly go there. The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the one that purifies us of our sins. Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.... When a person dies their eternal home is sealed--heaven or hell--no in between. Hebrews 9:27 ...it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.
Oxymoron!
