You’re confused. Barry Goldwater never supported LBJs Vietnam adventure. He said declare war and win it, or get out. Ron Paul has already demonstated that he will support and fight a defensive war. Declare war and get congressional approval. Just like Goldwater. Thanks for the reply!

Ron Paul is such a loser. Come on man. Ron Paul does not even believe this is a war we must win.

I’m too old for childish insults. If you have a thoughtful reply, I will do the same. Thanks all!

When's the last time anyone won a defensive war?

Barry Goldwater said to use tactical nuclear weapons. THAT'S what scared people.

He said declare war and win it, or get out.

You have to go there to win it, however.

Ron Paul has already demonstated that he will support and fight a defensive war.

Perhaps, but the problem with Ron Paul is that if he got his way on foreign policy, we'd HAVE to fight a defensive war. On our own soil. Because he wouldn't have the foresight to realise that sometimes, you have to fight pre-emptive wars to keep the bad guys from coming to you on their terms. It's a lesson as old as Thucydides....

Declare war and get congressional approval. Just like Goldwater. Thanks for the reply!

What part of "congressional authorisation for the war" do you think doesn't mean "congressional approval"?
