    I know Dr. Paul upsets the Socialists & Neocons in both parties but he really is the only politician worth listening to in my humble opinon. So before you start frothing at the mouth and screeching about him being a "loon",just open up a little and give him a listen. Enjoy...

    The UN is now also urging our Military to conduct a 'Drug War' in Afghanistan as well. That just seems like lunacy to me. We were never supposed to be over there conducting 'Drug Wars.' That was not part of the authorization to go to War over there. We are now conducting two separate Wars simultaneously in Afghanistan and it looks like we're losing both. What a mess.

    I voted for Paul in the Michgan Primary. He is wrong, we havent been trying to shape the ME for 20 years its more like 80 or 90. We do have interests in the region that are a grave security copncern for our country. Whether our recent actvities are beyond the scope of that concern is debatable

    Yea sole,we have been trying to shape many parts of the World for a very long time. We should have a very minor presence in the Middle East as far as i'm concerned. We can still buy their oil without having such a huge presence. Other countries do this and we could too. The Middle East will shape themselves into our image anyway. The Muslims in the Middle East have two choices. Either become somewhat Westernized or allow the Bin Laden-type radicals to take over their countries. They have already made their decisions on that. A McDonalds and Wal-Mart on every street corner is far better than a violent & oppresseive Taliban-style Government. They know this. They have already been shaped so lets scale back.

    Hes not as impressive as you seem to think he is.

    His appeal is very limited.

    Ron Paul?

    Must be visiting day at the asylum. Hey Ron, you hear about that North American Union and NAFTA Superhighway they are planning?

    I don't agree with everything Dr. Paul says but i do agree with most of what he says. He is a bit of a purist and is not very flexible. I understand this and i think that's why i admire him so much. He stands by his principles and never wavers. That's not a very popular stance with today's politicians. The dirty backroom deals are what our Government has become all about these days. Dr. Paul probably is an outsider in that process. That's a good thing though in my opinion. I'm not as much of a purist as he is but i'm pretty close.

    Dr Paul spouted his nonsense in 2008 and was roundly ridiculed and ignored by the voters.
    They somehow have a way of identifying a quack

    He wasn't ignored nearly as much as you think.

    I also agree with him 100% on rethinking the whole Foreign "Aid" issue. It's an issue that most Americans don't know much about. This is mainly because these Foreign Aid deals are mostly done in secrecy with no Citizen input at all. People would be amazed and possibly horrified if they knew who and exactly how much taxpayer cash we give to foreign entities. Even Terrorist groups like Hamas receive American Tax Dollars. Most Americans probably don't know that. That's just one sad example though. There are many many more. It's not all their fault though. These deals are done in secret for the most part. People just need to awaken from their slumber and get more involved.
