If your answer is the US should be that dominant military power, then you have to oppose Ron Paul. He has stated that he would gut the military. With all bases closed, as he said, we are done as a military power. Ron Paul would destroy this nation defensively and sent the entire world into chaos. He is a dangerous crackpot.

And, the military political donations to Paul is BS PR. 1. His cult can check any box they want when they donate. They/he knows they can get press by checking the “military” box. There is no audit of those things. It is no more credible than on-line polls that the Paul cult stuffs the voting. 2. The amount is peanuts. In a campaign that takes in millions of dollars, a few tens of thousands is chump change.

Yes he would close dozens of bases on foreign territory. Hooray for that. Let the us military defend us citizens. The the german military defend german citizens. Let the japanese defend themselves.

Having allies is one thing what we have are protectorates and de facto colonies.

Every empire in history has collapsed in on itself. Why would anyone think we would be any different? War is ineveitable. But what we have had for the last 20 years is a never ending war. Undeclared and unwinnable.

Bring our troops home and prepare for the coming global conflict that will come wether we have our troops posted over seas or not.

Ron Paul's policies would leave the next President with nothing to use but nukes.

That demonstrates how enlightened Paul is ~ which is NOT VERY!
