As you all know I’m never very science savvy, I’m also not very politically savvy, but I have gotten a little bit better ever since I married my husband. He’s very much into politics and he keeps me informed, but that doesn’t mean I know EVERY thing about it. Anyways that’s not the point.
Our candidate for the presidential election is Ron Paul. Very simply put because he has been voting consistently forever. I like him because he is fighting to get our country back to the standards of the Constitution. We are soo far away from where our country needs to be and he has a plan to get us out of other countries business and get our country back on track. That’s the reason I’m voting for him.
A few days ago the Secular Student Alliance posted a video up on facebook of Ron Paul saying that he doesn’t believe in evolution and called it a ‘theory’. I do disagree with him on this. BUT this isn’t going to sway my vote for him. In the video someone asks him if he believed in evolution and he said he didn’t and then said “that question is inappropriate, and not what this is about” (or something along those lines) I completely agree with him on this! I am well aware that he belives in a god, but that wont stop me from voting for him. It’s the fact that he isn’t following the traditional politician path by changing his votes. He has voted no on things that could actually help him had he voted yes. He votes No if it’s unconstitutional.
There were a lot of people who commented on the post saying that they liked him at first but now that they know he doesn’t believe in evolution they wont vote for him. That’s crazy! You’re really going to NOT vote for someone just because disagree over ONE LITTLE FACT?! I don’t understand that! He isn’t running his campaign based on his beliefs! He’s running his campaign based on the Constitution!
I’m going to stop now because this just makes me mad at people in general for being so closed minded.
