    It's not like we have business interest all over the world.


    He's a true isolationist.

    Maybe if the US had minded it's own business to begin with it might be possible...but it isn't any longer. This was a stupid statement on his part because he knows it can't be done. It's a "world economy" and to just step aside now would kill us. But we DO need to do what both Perry and Newt said at one of the debates....stop just handing our money over to other countries that could care less about America, that's most of them! If we kept all that money here we'd be booming!

    Man!......pfffft!!....my God!........

    First of all, it sounds like you have no grasp of the difference between isolationism and non-interventionalism.

    Furthermore!......he's said he's not an isolationist a million times!!!!

    Moreover.....he's clearly stated how our business interests are best served by nationbuilding in America!!!...............not Iraq, Afghanistan, or Libya!

    Ron Paul's foreign policy is brilliant, and he's way ahead of righties and lefties on this one.

    He wants to bring ALL our troops home. Does he not?

    He wants to bring them from Germany, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Japan etc...

    You call it what you want. I call it like I see it and I see it as he's being an isolationist.

    If he was so right about the issues he would have been elected President decades ago.

    I really feel like there must be a small, wealthy (probably racially and socioeconomically homogenous) island nation somewhere that Ron Paul could run reasonable well.

    Certainly not a diverse, complex, 21st century world power but some place where he can re-create the 18th century to his heart's content.

    We can still be an economic & military power without meddling in every nations' business. Nothing wrong with free & fair trade with everyone. Ron Paul fully supports that. He also fully supports a strong defense. We're still operating in an outdated foreign policy. Let the Syrians worry about Syria.

    If you do not undeerstand the strategic importance of Syria, then you are one ignorant person.

    And don't ask me to educate you. There's not enough hours in a day.

    If China or Russia were doing the same things our gov't was doing all over the world we'd be saying:

    "Why don't they mind their own business?"
