MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Campaigning in New Hampshire today, Republican Ron Paul says he would lift sanctions on Iran and order the U.S. Navy to pull back from its shores.
Paul says if the U.S. relieved pressure on Iran, people would breathe a sign of relief, interest rates probably would not go up and oil prices probably would drop.
Speaking in Manchester, Paul said the Bush administration has been looking for war with Iran.
That is great to hear.
Ron Paul is the ONLY conservative running in 2008.
Humble foreign policy and not being the Policemen of the world and not killing American troops overseas for failed missions.
RON PAUL 2008
Loving Castro and Islamist Iran is not conservative.
What a WACK JOB!
you are an absolute pyscho
1) Destroy our nuclear arsenal & dismantle the U.S. Military
2) Remove all our police forces
3) Remove any established religions
You do those three things & I'm sure maybe a very few of us surviving in the remote hills might be able to play Taps over a radioactive / dead America.
I'll 2nd that!
McGovernism is not a conservative value.
I guess Jimmy Carter was the ONLY conservative running in 1980.
I’m sure there are many supporters of Iran as well as of Castro who are pleased with his position.
We need to either bring down the Iranian government, or shut up about them.
I prefer the former, but I think even the latter is preferable to the last six years of “empty threats as policy”.
Hey, we got us a live one here!
If there’s a huge wasp’s nest forming up above my front door under the roof. Ron Paul would say “don’t bother them and they won’t bother you”.
You know someone accused us “Fred-Heads” of going to other threads to attack other candidates. Why does he think we have to do such things, when some of these people speak for themselves and say things like this article says?
Republican Ron Paul says he would lift sanctions on Iran and order the U.S. Navy to pull back from its shores.
Well isn’t that precious. I assume Paul will not be returning to the House after the next election.
you forgot the DING,DING,DING
Many of the people in Iran are probably peace-loving & decent.
However, they acquiesce quickly to the nutters who they allow to run their affairs, and they stand by and watch as their fellow Iranians are killed or beaten for not being pious enough.
So they need to have sanctions, because they won’t do anything to stop the evil in their midst and have proven themselves to be spineless.
That has to be the funniest joke I've heard today.. you sound just like his cult.. good one, thanks for the laugh...
(maybe a good opportunity to post this again.. I need to update it..)
Don't be fooled.. Paul is no Conservative. Votes speak louder than rhetoric.
Ron Paul's Voting Record (ya, ya, I know, there is an excuse for all of these, state's rights are more important than stopping abortion and fixing the border, Ronnie is making a statement, or everyone else was voting against it and he was just playing the game, yadda, yadda, yadda)
Here are some more ‘Conservative(sic)’ votes by Paul:
Voted NO on federal crime to harm fetus while committing other crimes.

Interesting posting history.
She is flatly against weekends, which are nowhere in the Constitution.
