    Ron Paul is completely correct, go figure he would get boo'ed for telling the facts.

    The other guys response scared me though, blaming the muslim tactic.

    Paul was corrct. We can EASILY reduce 'military' spending, without harming 'defense spending' or reducing our national security.

    I started a thread a while back on the topic 'what would your first act as President be'. Most of the responses were silly nonsense, partisan hackery, etc. A few were serious. Mine was...'get my staff to list every military asset, base, outpost, etc, in every country we have them. List them in descending order by cost to maintain. Cross reference them with their importance to national security. This would be used to make reductions in military spending that do not adversely affect our national security.

    Paul is right. the neocons in the audience are wrong. facts are facts...truth is truth...if truth and facts are "unelectable" then enjoy another four years of lies.

    Then you must be elated that Paul will do "nothing" about the 20 million that are here "until the border is secure?" Which mean he will do nothing during his term.:confused:

    Ron Paul is breathtakingly - and actually dangerously - naive about defense.

    This. Too many Americans don't know the difference between having a strong Military for defense and sending our Military overseas to fight unnecessary and hugely unpopular wars along side our supposed enemy Al Qaida.
