    Well, Obama is fighting to turn this country into a third world shit hole as he sues and fights anyone that tries to deport the third world. Ron Paul will stand with the majority and his people and fight for our laws. He will cut the budget and get this nation back on track!

    That's what!

    If the vote was to come up today and Ron Paul was in the general election I would vote for Ron Paul . Otherwise I would vote for Obama against the other parade of clowns except maybe Santorum but y'all have not given him funding.

    I figure Paul should win this vote with all the online support he seems to have.

    Wow! What a tough scenario. With Paul's attitude, it's like having Obama in the WH for four more years. Except Paul wouldn't even ask for the drone back.

    I would go with Paul, I guess and hope he gets the economy back and some of his advisors would hit him along the side of his head when it came to foreign affairs. Oh the headache I have just thinking of it...

    Please don't use the term 'national security' when you have no understanding of it. Our Middle East policy has NOTHING to do with preventing violent attacks on the US and EVERTHING to do with encouraging it. That is simply a fact and it's time you hysterical sheep wake the fuck up.

    I'll make this as simple as possible for you: when Nixon moved the US off the gold standard he made an arrangement with the Saudi Royal Family to have OPEC members sell their petroleum only in dollars in exchange for major US military presence and protection. What Nixon didn't include in this arrangement, that the Neocons have since added, is the caveat that if any OPEC member decides to take their petro off the dollar, not only will we stop using our military to protect you but we will in fact use it to keep your petro fixed to the dollar by any means neccessary.

    Saddam took his petro off the dollar six months prior to US invasion in 2003.

    Gaddafi was in the process of organizing a united African currency to trade its petro in prior to his assasination.

    Iran has taken it's petro off the dollar and is in the process of creating the Iranian Oil Bourse, a commodity exchange specifically for petroleum. Iranian oil bourse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Our Middle East policy is not national security, it is a hybrid of economic/militaristic imperialism: PETRODOLLAR WARFARE.

    I wouldn't vote for either of them.

    Nor anyone else who's said they're running.
