    The debates have been going on time and time again on this message board about Ron Paul's electability and he is a nut job and coward on issues regarding foreign policy.

    Well looking at it our troops support Ron Paul, he receives more donations from active military then Obama. More donations then all the other GOP candidates combined, so if Ron Paul is a coward for not sending our troops into dangerous parts of the world that are unconstitutional... what are you saying about our troops?

    In 2008, he had the most support from active military in the primary season and now we see this again in gearing up for the 2012 election.

    True.

    I’ve not seen anyone accuse Paul of being a coward, perhaps you could cite the post(s).

    Otherwise I consider Paul’s position on the foreign deployment of the military courageous and correct.

    Whatever Ron Paul may be called, coward isn't one of them.

    The man may possibly be one of the most seasoned politicians in the world.

    Paul's opinion about illegal immigration seems irrational. He is against completing and maintaining the fence line but he seems willing to put the Military on the ground to enforce border security. I think Paul has Military intervention on the brain and let's face it, he ain't getting any younger.

    If they donate in large numbers to Ron Paul, does that mean our military service people want the US to stop meddling in other countries affairs?

    Paul basically said people without insurance should be allowed to die.

    Nut job? Yes. Coward? No.

    The military as a whole is non-partisan. Individual soldiers can support whomever they want, but you can't say "the troops support Ron Paul".

    So you could basically make your statement about any single candidate. It's a silly premise.

    If a majority of the military favorites one candidate over another, then the troops aren't really non-partisan.

    He said business's should be able to have signs that say "no blacks allowed".....and he meant it.

    He also said he would not have voted for the civil rights act....and he meant it.

    Fuck Ron Paul. This is not 60 years ago, its 2011 and his outdated thinking is just fucking scary.
