So I'll mark you down in the "big government lover" category then?

Oh brother! They're still there and still killing people. Your stupid cozying tactics with Pakistan gave them a safe haven to run to and now is fueling them.
Your drone patrols in Pakistan are pissing them off and adding to the Taliban's numbers; you haven't cleared a rat's nest; you've caused a bigger one! Karzai stealing millions of U.S.money hasn't escaped notice by anyone living there and will simply result in him absconding to whatever country will have him the minute your butts are out of Afghan-is-bad.

Engage your own returning troops from the theater and they'll tell you you're wasting time money and lives in complete folly just like the Russkies before you did. You're gonna get handed your hat over there yet again.

I think you need to do some very serious research regarding the phenomenon of "blowback." What if our foreign policy is creating more terrorists than it kills? Let me ask you a question, if China invaded the United States of America would you take up arms to defend your country? If you answer yes than you are a "terrorist" according to our current definition. For every American that the Chinese killed 10 more would be "radicalized" and take up arms. We wouldn't want a foreign entity on our soil dictating to us how things will be, we should treat others how we expect to be treated.

Only a tiny sliver of Americans really know anything about the R primary candidates and what they stand for. I'd love to see an outsider make it to battle against Obama and be able to explain to a wide audience how we can reshape & rebuild our country into one that's honorable in managing it's foreign relationships, intelligent in fiscal policy and strengthening jobs & the economy, and respectful of ALL of it's people, big and small, by not letting lobbyists dictate policy. Paul is for a lot of things that will make sense to the average American- ie, bring troops home to defend US soil and spend their paychecks here!
Good!

He could not be more right about his assessment but he didn't take it as far as he could have... Imagine a country in it's efforts killed over 1 million of our civilian citizens, Imagine if those forces killed over 100,000 civilians in Louisiana... would you call it genocide?

Yes this is a reality and yet Americans aren't appalled by the numbers... What does it take to say enough?

I agree with Ron Paul on this, and on the Federal Reserve, but not gay rights... he is too conservative on that front than I like.

You're not fooling anybody.

You took every word as a compliment, pre-facto.
