    A common problem is the idea, promoted by Kristol and others of the Neo-Reaganite group, that war weariness must be fought against rather than carefully considered and to a large extent, accepted. They are too married to the concept that we are the only ones holding ourselves back from accomplishing great and never-before-seen things in geopolitics.

    The stuff about the "war machine" is a bit much to listen to from Paul, and makes it too....systematic for my taste.

    Ron Paul's "No Foreign Policy Institute" would be named more aptly.

    At least he gives speeches worth listening too in the US Senate, as for his disciples at least he has some, much better than being spoken too by a tool controlled by the bribe money of lobbyists on Capitol Hill. I imagine its the having a different opinion on the world part that angers little pony.

    Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, now a professor at the University of California at Berkeley, doesn't make a distinction between the two activities. When asked by e-mail, "What's the real difference between me bribing a customs agent so that I can bring a banned substance into the country or me contributing money to a senator and then cajoling him into making the substance legal for import?" Reich answered, "Frankly, I don't see much difference. A bribe is a bribe. People authorized only to act in the public interest may not use their office for private gain. Period."

    I take it the whole idea of not wanting war comes across to you as not having a foreign policy?

    Noninterventionism is not isolationism. Nonintervention simply means America does not interfere militarily, financially, or covertly in the internal affairs of other nations. It does not mean that we isolate ourselves; on the contrary, our founders advocated open trade, travel, communication, and diplomacy with other nations.

    Thomas Jefferson summed up the noninterventionist foreign policy position perfectly in his 1801 inaugural address: "Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations entangling alliances with none." Washington similarly urged that we must, "Act for ourselves and not for others," by forming an "American character wholly free of foreign attachments."

Which Paul and everybody else knows.....which is why he has now turned his attention to the Neo-Cons.
    Neocons subscribe to the 'Clean Break' ideology on foreign policy for the Middle East, Ron Paul argues for a non-interventionist policy which respects international law.

    They are opposed, this piece called The War Party gives an idea of what the Neocons are about, it also highlights the break between traditional conservatives

    i dont understand you, surely you would be against the u.s. meddling in the affairs of other nations, involving ourselves in wars, which are not a threat to the u.s....i would think you at least support that position..which is pauls' position.
