As Ron Paul has been saying in the debates, historically conservatives have abhorred intervention abroad; it's always been progressives that have argued "government is a force for good", not conservatives. Even Bush himself promised non-intervention.
Ron Paul came off like an addled brained half wit from CUNY, what moronicy pill did he take just before the debate?
Does it particularly matter “why” Al Quida does anything? Is this some sort of negotiation that we should be concerned as to what Osama’s motivations are?
Gee, if only we would have listened to Osama and done what he wanted us to do...
Put his head on pike, and be done with him, end of story, let some half wit worry over what he had to say on life on earth.
haha...Yea if we didn’t intervene it would all work out a lot better for us. Ron Paul gives a bad name to idiocy.
It would all work out better if we waited for the Caliphate to establish itself in the ME and Europe. After all fighting the Islamic Nutjobs now violates all that is good and right with fairness and principle. We should wait till they attack us here in the states...oh wait they did.
Ron Paul is a crazy old fool who doesn’t understand the principles he thinks he is espousing.
You don’t wait till the Caliphate is established before you decide to fight them. You eliminate them prior to that point.
Hollywood will still exist.
McDonalds will still exist.
Dell and HP will still make money off of laptops used by terrorists and poor nations worldwide because they make the vast majority of pcs worldwide.
And AlQaueda will still whip up hatred for America because of the next Palestinian/Kosovo/Kurdish racial disaster. They will in fact hate us EVEN MORE if our standard of living is the same or even higher, while our anti-oil economy will defund and destabilize all of the Saudi Arabian/UAE 'dictocracies' which keep some semblance of order over there.
America had a choice to make---and Bush had to punch the ticket. God bless him for having the balls to get out of bed in the morning instead of hiding under the isolationist sheets.
Ron Paul's plattitudes are those of a perpetual candidate. They evaporate when they contact the first intelligence briefing in the Whitehouse. Don't be a sucker.
