(Giving more money to DC to fix the Debt is like giving free drugs to addicts think it will cure them)
You and I don’t agree all that often, but when you’re right you’re right, and here you certainly are right.
The number one myth about Paul is that more than a handfull of people are bat-s**t-crazy enough to vote for him.
What I personally admire about Ron the most, is his dedication to destroying himself in the eyes of every American.
Keep up the good work Ron. Only a few folks left...

(Why back in '88, Conservatives backed Gore in Texas. What Reagan revolution? What laegacy?)
Not to defend Mr. Paul who sometimes seems to go out of his way to ignore legitimate concerns of Israel and to put too much blame on US polices, but isolation is not a dirty word. For a long time, some our greatest conservatives like Robert Taft tended toward isolationism. It's true that total isolation is not possible or desirable, but neither is absolute interventionism and a lot of people think we should move our national conduct toward the isolation direction.
The interventionists are right when they say that the oceans and distance are not as insulating as before but they are gravely wrong when they imply that our geographical separation means nothing. Our location means we can still insulate our security to a greater degree than any other great power and the aim of American policy should be to avoid conflict. If we cannot avoid war, our policy should strive for America to be the LAST power to enter a general war, not the FIRST!
We’d better be careful: They said something like that about Herr Hitler.
