    Normally, I think of Ron Paul as the crazy one, but it's true, he has been the only sane one so far.

    We should have sent 40,000 troops instead of 30,000 troops?

    Iran is a "dictatorship" (from Newt)? Are dictators "elected"?

    No timeline is "safer"?

    Don't negotiate with the Taliban because they are "terrorists"?

    No negotiation with Afghanistan?

    This has to be much "larger"?

    I Like what Perry is saying about giving "0" foreign aid to countries that don't support the US! I just tuned in so i missed the other answers! :)

    I don't think cutting off aid to Pakistan is a plausible policy. I expect it would lead to a massive destabilization, which is clearly not in US interests.

    Dr. Paul is wise to the military industrial complex and its connection to pork for votes. He served, as did I.

    Santorum's answer on Pakistan was basically that we need to be actively working to strengthen pro-US elements in Pakistan, basically the policy we've had under Bush and Obama (and even before). Why does he seem to be so much more realistic than many of the other candidates? Before I started listening to these debates I thought he was the most ridiculous candidate. Now I wonder if he'll be the flavor of the week sometime before the voting starts, and maybe get his foot in the door.

    You guys know that Despite the Fact that China is Manipulating their Currency Value to our Detriment, Despite the Fact that they side against us in the UN almost all the time, Despite the Fact that we "OWE" them A trillion dollars, and Despite the Fact that their Economy is about to Eclipse ours as the Biggest in the world.

    WE STILL FUCKING GIVE CHINA AID.

    I mean WTF.

    Did Newt just say he would adopt the Reagan/Ron Paul stance on Iran?
