Mike, Really? Are you saying that Chile is FREE? They have a DICTATOR ruling Chile. Norway, they are one the BIGGEST Socialist government states on this planet! Norway is ONLY prosperous due to OIL, which we would be too, if our illustrious "leader" would not sell our oil rigs to Chile and let us develop our OIL. Paul is completely OUT of touch and bordering on insane and if you think what he says makes sense, you belong in the padded cell next to him. Sorry to be so blunt, but defending him and his craziness is like saying sean penn is a rocket scientist.
i was talking economically. economically they are the freest country in the world. even so they still don't have terrorist attacks against them because their leader doesn't start wars.
you might think he is "out of touch" with our foreign policy, however he has the most contributions from active military officers than the next 4 GOP candidates combined.
support the troops... who do the troops support?

Mike, Islamic WARS were going on LONG before there was ever a United States of America. That is the culture of that part of the world. Atilla the Hun ring a bell? don't try to rationalize their BAD behavior on our policies. Can't let you do that. You are mistaken if you think we would not be in battle with muslims if we stayed out of their business. NOT true. The intention of muslims directed by the koran is to KILL or convert ALL INFIDELS. That's me and maybe you, since I don't know you or what belief you hold. Wake up and get real. If we built a wall completely around our country and stayed here...they would come...to either KILL or convert. Period. As far as Israel, Palestinians have been attempting to wipe every Israeli off the face of the planet since time began. If they were to get the land they want, they would NOT be satisfied. Period. The ONLY satisfaction they will have is to wipe out EVERY Jew, and everyone who is NOT muslim. Period.,
fair enough. Google the first time muslims attack the US. then find out why they did and it proves my point.
I would say that is because they have to pick a lesser evil and for no other reason, Mike.Most militery officers I know would rather go blow up the ME than ever have to deal with it again, and I work with them everyday. Ron Paul is scary in his passivism, read some history and you can plainly see that a nation that plans to stay on top and not be toppled and overrun, has to go to war at some point. We may not need to be the world's police force, but we cannot sit idly by either while freedom and liberty and our way of life are in danger. America is who she is, and in order to keep our way of life WE MUST DEFEND HER! If we can pull this nation together and get the traitors out of Washington, maybe we can finally pull her back up out of the fire and restore her to her former glory! We need to fight DC, not each other.
