You can call it non-interventional, others call it isolationism. I have said, over and over, we are in some places we need not be. Most have said that, but his idea is radical to many. Maybe not to you, which is your right but you do need to realize others don't see it the way you do. This is why he can't win..

Right, it's not that he wants to reform our foreign policy, it's that he wants to rid it altogether. The relationship with Israel is complicated (one I don't personally favor) and wrought with problems, but to say we should cut off all ties with them shows Paul is out of his depth and couldn't handle a crisis when if/when it comes our way.

Your making things up. I'd like to see proof of your "cut off all ties" statement. I follow Ron Paul and have never heard him say that. I have heard him say MANY times to trade with them just don't tell them how to run their own country and bribe them to do it with government handouts of Americans money. I have never understood the mentality of giving our money to foreign nations while we have so many problems here.

I guess it's too radical to worry about our own house these days.

I don't believe anyone said that. If they did, who was it?

The ones who believe we should keep sending foreign aid to other countries instead of helping Americans say that with their actions.

The Ron Pauls supporters are Ron Paul's secret service his supporters love him so much they would all take a bullet or shoot and kill a fool trying to attack Ron Paul, he doesn't need secret service. I guess the other candidates don't have that dedicated supporters which makes the Tampa surprise possible.

Well said! I'm hoping to be one of those delegates in Tampa. None of the other candidates have such enthusiastic supporters, especially among young people, independents, and active duty military. But I do imagine they would make him take Secret Service protection if he were the nominee.
