    His foreign policy comments eliminates him from the start to be a legit POTUS.

    It is one thing to discuss cutting taxes, making the Govt smaller, giving people their rights back....but when he ignores the US role around the world in maintaining world peace and helping maintain FREE markets for the world, then he is toast.

    I appreciate your opinion but i have to disagree. We've had enough of all this 'World's Policeman/Referee' stuff. It's time for something different. I'm ok with helping other Nations as far as real humanitarian aid goes,but that's where it needs to end. We have become way too much of a Militarized/Police State at this point. It's time to scale back on that disturbing trend. I don't want the damn TSA out on our Highways conducting random Checkpoints on innocent American Citizens. To Hell with security if that's their brand of security. Big Government is just out of control at this point. It's time to reign it in.

    The crazy shit done by the TSA has nothing to do with Ron Paul claiming we need to pull our military back from every foreign base.

    That is nuts, even something leftists like Obamination realize is idiotic.

    We are overseas to maintain the peace and keep the flow of commerce open. Countries like Russia, China, Iran, etc would gladly move into places we abandon if we left town.

    See what happened in WWII. Countries like Germany, Italy and Japan took advantage of the sleeping giant in the USA not paying attention to their endeavors into neighboring countries.

    Today militaries are even more advanced so moving in and taking over a country is even easier and faster. See what Russia did to Georgia right under the nose of NATO. I doubt the Baltic states that are constantly threatened by Russia would love to see no US forces propping up NATO in Europe.....or Japan having to deal with China on their own.

    Want to see $20/gal gas at the pump...well let Iran take over the GCC nations with no US Navy keeping the sea lanes there open.

    It does all connect. We have become a Militarized/Police State. And our Foregn Policy has helped create it. Ironically,our agggressive foreign interventionist policies were supposed to spread Freedom around the rest of the World,yet they have only made us less free here in our nation. Our rights are being whittled away as we type these posts. It's time to bring everyone home. The World can take care of themselves. They always have and they always will. After all,they did that long long before there ever was a United States of America.

    Ron NEVER said the USA would cut navy or military technology research, let alone intelligence. The USA is NOT the worlds policeman. It's up to INDIVIDUAL countries to protect themselves. If the baltic states desire to form their own military coalition, let em do so! Ron gets in & he'll push to open up our own crude extraction & refinement facilities as the EPA will be no more.
    The notion that the nations will destroy themselves without the USA to play the role of global disciplinarian is ridiculous. There always has been military conflicts such as is going on in the continent of Africa at current. Countries like Rwanda need to learn LIBERTY & that comes in blood. Enough blood shed & they'll smarten up & go the way of liberty & peace... just as the USA ONCE did.

    Yea the World survived just fine long long before we ever came along. And haven't people gotten sick of this long ongoing 70yr. Bombing Campaign yet? Man,i know i am. Most in this country can't even remember a time when we weren't at War with someone around the World. We've been bombing with almost no reprive for the last 70yrs. straight. Isn't it time for something different? It's time to scale back.

    The US military has nothing to do with what the TSA idiots are doing here.

    As for claiming the US military has caused trouble around the world.....bullshit. We are there to clean up crap started by others and to keep them from killing each other too.

    Many Arabs want the Jews pushed back into the ocean, but that must be our fault.

    China has their crosshairs on taking Taiwan, oil in the south china sea, etc.

    Russia wants their Soviet satellite states back.

    Iran wants to bring back the Persian empire.

    What does the US want? Freedom of movement, civil rights, etc.

    I don't fear a Ron Paul presidency. Remember all you Paul supporters and Paul haters, that the POTUS is not Caesar, he cannot just do anything he wants to. In the same way that Barack Hussin Obama couldn't close Gitmo, Paul won't be able to close all the bases and immediately end all wars and bring all troops home. What will most likely happen is that a happy medium will be reached. One that saves money, and still maintains our presence around the world.
