    So stretching our military thin across the world and making new enemies is how we improve national security?

    Of course it isn't, and is probably one of the contributing factors, among many others, of 911.

Dr. Paul has always advocated trade and commerece with all nations, isolationism is closing all the doors and pretend that the rest of the world doesnt exist.
    I'm surprised at you, Ron Paul supports the Police.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    But today I have the feeling that much of the rancor against Paul's stance is only because of who he is. After all, many that now bash him for his position strongly supported Clinton when he attacked Yugoslavia.

    Finally, you can see with your own eyes that, while they are quick to paint Buckley, who founded their organization, as a Neocon, and CIA agent, they forget that his experience in the CIA was only 2 years in the 1950's, that he was against regime change without the will of the people being involved, that he was for legalization of marijuana, believed that Iraq was a disaster. Buckley may have had a few views which ran opposite to his mostly Paleocon ideology, but he was nevertheless one of the greatest Paleocon thinkers of our time. What has happened to the YAF most likely has Buckley turning in his grave. This organization is not the same as the one Buckley founded.

    Who represents Goldwater better? Ron Paul or the YAF? You decide in the poll.

    Article is here.
    I don't know what happens with Ron Paul and all these other people. I mean, when he was running for the GOP ticket, all the "conservatives" were against him. I remember him being railed (that's not the right word, Hannity cannot rail anyone. But he did his thing where he starts yelling about this or that, not letting the other guy really get a chance to defend, and then says they're out of time, and as the guy walks away he just insults him a few times for good measure) by Sean Hannity after a GOP Presidential Candidate Debate.

    I don't trust "conservatives" who say they like Ron Paul. They've shown their colors change with the wind. Certainly wouldn't want want of those jerks in my corner.

    I don't think so. I think what happened was that the right-wing propaganda machine moved in and they really didn't allow much of his message to get out. The idea was to paint him as and extremist and someone who doesn't know what he's talking about. Now they come running to him because it turns out he was right and people should have listened and now the "conservatives" fear for their political future.

    Conservatives....you can count on them as much as you can't count on the French in a fight. HAHAHAHA
