Gallery: Romney Vs. Santorum: Whoever Wins the Republican Race, The Env...

 

The Iowa caucuses are over and Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have emerged as the Republican front-runners. It is a race that has seen almost every candidate touted as a potential winner – before scandal (Herman Cain) or lack of support (Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachmann) has forced them to withdraw. Over the next few months, Romney and Santorum will be doing everything they can to convince the American people that they are the right person for the job. However there’s one major gap in each of their running platforms – neither of them really cares for the environment.

    Then as a reporter you should have given the three frontrunners pretty even coverage. It will make you look short-sighted if Dr. Paul wins, and afterall, Paul did get the most delegates in Iowa. (That’s a win in my book!)

    Something else you could have reported on is the fact that Paul wants to “Make tax credits available for the purchase and production of alternative fuel technologies.” (From his site.)

    Hey, I’m the author of the article and I DID actually consider including Ron Paul, but like Romney he has changed his stance over global warming over the past several years… and I didn’t really want to repeat myself.

    For example, in 2007 he said: “I think some of it [global warming] is related to human activities, but I don’t think there’s a conclusion yet” and then in 2009 said: “The greatest hoax I think that has been around for many, many years if not hundreds of years has been this hoax on the environment and global warming.”

    Still. He does like bike riding. So that’s something…

    What about Ron Paul? With his substantial tax reduction plans, we as individuals will actually have money and the choice to fund the best organizations that can actually help our planet. That’s something the Obama Administration (and the US Government in general) has proved to never be very good at.

    Organizations that run on Free Market principles (such as US Green Building Counsel, green blogs, colleges that fund innovative environmental research) have also proven to be the most powerful route for changing the minds of our culture. Ron Paul supports this system and he most certainly has my vote for 2012!

    Um, I think you’re forgetting another front runner here, Ron Paul. Why is it media fails to see the light of day. Have a read at a website that gave a fair treatment to Paul:

    He’s not perfect but he’s better than any other candidate out there, Obama included.
