Former United States congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul has called on the US to stay out of the intensifying Ukraine conflict, saying it was Western powers that initially stirred unrest there and which continue to incite the tense situation

He does, on foreign affairs and on the damage the Federal Reserve does to our economy.
I've given up on the supposed consitutional conservatives, every one of them. First the Bundy standoff, now Odessa. Not one of them has the instincts to get in front of fast-moving events.
At the very least, they should condemn people dying in a burning building instead of trying to save them. The Sounds of Silence are deafening....
Obama is staying out.
Soros and the Banksters in the EU are losing too much money. The United States will sacrifice the lives of military personnel to support Soros.
Benghazi is bubbling up again.
Need a distraction.
You really don’t get the value of life, do you?
It’s a sad business. People all over the country are suffering, Ukrainian, Russian, and everyone else. There appear to be terrorists and power grabbers on both sides.
But, yes, this article is essentially true. George Soros, the One World crowd, and if certain stories are to be believed, the CIA, started this business by funding and training the terrorists who overthrew the elected President and replaced him with their guy.
The only problem is that they didn’t figure out what would happen next. Obama is a coward, happy to start wars but unwilling to finish them. So the whole thing got out of control and boomeranged back.
Hopefully, Putin has enough sense to stop before it turns into a full-scale war. Because Obama doesn’t have enough sense to pick up his own poops. Or, if the truth be known, he really loves to deposit them all over the place. Gifts and favors to the peons, he thinks.
I have no sympathy for thugs and criminals, if that’s what you mean.
He should stop jawboning with Merkle and call off his intimidating defense department, and fire Kerry while he's at it..
...Hopefully, Putin has enough sense to stop before it turns into a full-scale war.
Are you excluding Putin from your list of terrorists and power grabbers?
No. Putin was an opportunist, who saw his chance and stepped in.
He’s gotten most of what he wanted with Crimea, and I just hope he has enough sense to stop there.
I’m not saying that Putin is a nice guy. Just that I think he has more sense than, let’s say, John Kerry, or Obama’s other idiot appointees. Or Juan McCain.
Of course, it’s possible that it’s too late to stop it, since much of the violence now comes from angry people on both sides within Ukraine.
Putin sees his chance to grab some territory and increase his popularity with Russians, by taking back Crimea. And he may be tempted by the “breadbasket” part of Ukraine as well.
But he didn’t actually start this mess. And I certainly don’t think we can count on Obama’s jerks to deal with it unless Putin shows some common sense and doesn’t try to grab too much.
How about Russia stays the F#ck out of Ukraine?
Were you so tender of the people murdered by Putins Puppets in Kiev ?
Rand Paul is a demagogue.

What happened in Odessa was the result of Ukrainian citizens fighting pro-Russian, Neo-Soviet, and Communist terrorists who are hell bent on taking Ukraine and returning it to the Soviet orbit (like Belarus is now).
How about Russia stays the F#ck out of Ukraine?
DO NOT DISTURB. SKINHEADS AT WORK.
“You really dont get the value of life, do you?”
Oh, so to you the value of human life is to be tramped upon by Russian thugs? Seriously, those who believe in the value of life believe in the value of freedom - and that means freedom from Russian oppression.
Are you guys as disturbed as I am at how many Freepers have suddenly bought into Russia’s propaganda on the Ukraine? I can’t get over it. It’s shocking.
“DO NOT DISTURB. SKINHEADS AT WORK.”
Russia probably has more skinheads than any nation on earth. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rs1tn-v6mko
Take them bowling.
I’m disgusted. There are a bunch like goldstategop and terclaf who seem to work 24-7 spewing Russian propaganda . To the point I’ve actually had to skip a lot of threads to keep from getting angry.
As an aside, shouldn’t your handle be Vladimir 988 ?
Russia probably has more skinheads than any nation on earth.
Perhaps these unibrows have skinhead envy?
“Take them bowling.”
Heck, I would take them all out for a beer if I could get them to stop being skinheads.
“As an aside, shouldnt your handle be Vladimir 988 ?”
Well, that was taken elsewhere. And so was vladimir999. So, I simply took vladimir998.
“Perhaps these unibrows have skinhead envy?”
Next you’ll blame the Jews since so many of them support a free Ukraine:
After all the pro-Russian side keeps blaming Mossad and the Jews. And the Jews keep blaming the Russians: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/03/03/who-s-really-behind-ukraine-s-synagogue-attacks.html
Perhaps they just want to be like their big Russian brothers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVFg0rLhY2w
Next youll blame the Jews since so many of them support a free Ukraine:
I do blame one.
Every culture has its kapos.
He sure has. The EU kept pushing East. Russia said No. We then decided to dis our potential ally against China and Islam. The EU wants us to bail them out with economic and military force. Sounds like another wipe out Iraq because Iran is our enemy. Sorry EU this one is on you.
Rand Paul, an American icon has his take and it's published verbatim on RT. Why do you call that propaganda by the Russians.
I don't think Ron Paul is taken in by the propaganda. Quite the opposite, you are.
Got it. My patronymic is “ Vladimirovich” , so I’m partial to it.
It's up to the Ukrainians if they want to be EU. It's not Russia's call to say what the people of Ukraine should do.
Sounds like another wipe out Iraq because Iran is our enemy.
Last I checked it's Russia that is paling around with Iran, enriching there uranium.
Sorry EU this one is on you.
Sorry, but it's stunning I see this POV on FR.
Obama gives us a chance to see how libertarianism works in foreign affairs and national defense, we will be able to see the effects in time.
I wasn’t commenting specifically about anything by Paul. I do think, however, that this whole crisis shows Paul to be something of a twit about Russia, however:
Quite frankly neither of the Pauls ever impressed me as very knowledgeable about anything overseas. I think their tendency toward isolationism has made them rather dimwitted about geo-political realities.
Paulians Unite....all for conspiracies...conspiracies for all
“Rand Paul, an American icon “
Stop right there.
Those cinema pics of him dressed as one of the Laurel and Hardy duo, are not real.
A medical doctor raises a medical doctor. While both still practicing, the first gets elected as a US representative, and the second gets elected US senator.
And you label them both as twits. Amazing. You must consider yourself a genius.
“And you label them both as twits. Amazing. You must consider yourself a genius.”
No, I just know isolationism doesn’t work. To know that fact requires no genius.
