You did not answer my question. If crackpot Ron Paul gutted the military and closed all foreign US bases, what nation or group would you like to see become the dominant world military power. There will be one, it just guaranteed, with crackpot Paul, it will not be the US.
You can bring up more Obama policies if you like, however, it does not answer what would happen if a dangerous isolationist like Ron Paul got his way and destroyed the US military.
i don’t agree with your premise that Ron Paul’s policies would destroy the military.
I have been a Republican all my life, probably will die a Republican. I have been voting since 1974. The present GOP is not the GOP of yesteryear. Compared to the Red Threat that occupies the White House, these candidates seem conservative, but then, so wouldn’t Chairman Mao.
All war is attrition. We, the Republic, have been loosing a war of financial attrition for decades. We, the Republic are engaged in a war with those who govern us. Drastic measures are required to defeat this enemy in order to stop the bleeding that each of us are seeing in the depreciation of our savings, the constant onslaught of taxes, fees, and licenses. Each of them designed to remove our ability to live free.
If a slave is a person who works for no money, then a paid person who works with no money left for savings or investment is therefore a slave. In each case work is done, the slave is fed and roofed.
We have no choice but to vote for the candidate who will without hesitation stop the death of a thousand cuts.
No one elected president can close down the military during his terms in office. Won't happen, period.
As for the most dominant military force?
In today's world, the number of soldiers have nothing to do with being a military power. It's all about technology, manufacturing, and distribution. Bring the troops home, set them up defending our boarders to stop the invaders(illegal immigrants), while they spend their paychecks here bolstering our economy instead of someone elses.
If we need to declare war, then we do so, and like in the past, ramp it up again.
Reduction of all Federal Spending, and all taxes, fees, and other theft apparatus, is the only way to save our Republic.
All the candidates have faults and planks we don't like. But at this time we need an Anti Federal Reserve, spend slashing nut job. It's our only chance.
Vote Ron Paul, and plead, beg, and demand the others drop out of the race.
They are not interested in the Republic.
