    When Iran leaves the stone age and does have a nuclear bomb as do many other nations, they will in all likelihood realize how paranoid and silly they are and just scrap it, as will other nations ...
    In other words ....give peace a chance, conservatives !

    No they won't and the idea that they would is absurd. As far as I am aware they don't have a delivery system that would make it possible even if they had a nuke.

    The US has enough nukes to wipeout mankind. If Americans are truly concerned about Iran nuking America then wouldn't make sense to take away the motivation? Why not just leave the region and stay the hell out of the affairs of governments and people in the Middle East? Obama doesn't seem to be interested in doing that.

    Uh...yeah...I don't feel like paying 7 bucks a gallon at the pump. Furthermore, while I am against America exporting its morality to those who don't want it, neither am I interested in seeing Sharia law being imposed in any major nation on Earth, nor am I interested in giving OPEC absolute control over an entire industry in which demand is about as inelastic as you can get.

    Whether you are religious or not, leaving Israel alone amongst a bunch of zealous savages is spelling disaster in reaches far beyond the immediate region.

    Perhaps. He would suck in a lot of areas. But voting for someone who MIGHT be an unmitigated disaster when he's running against someone who ALREADY is an unmitigated disaster is a no brainer. LOL. The devil you know is not always better than the devil you don't.

    I think foreign policy and border security would suffer under Paul... but both are already suffering tremendously under Obama. Some say Ron Paul is racist... I would argue that so is Obama.

    I think Paul would benefit the country by concentrating on the individual person rather than the collective whole- I just don't think he would be worse than Obama at anything. Hell, I don't think Justin Bieber would be any worse than Obama.

    Obama. While I don't see any vast improvement from Obama's first term, he hasn't made things worse than they were towards the end of Bush's second term. I just don't see how anything Ron Paul proposes makes things better either here in America domestically or by our role and obligation on the international stage. America doesn't exist in a vaccum, and we need to be proactive with other countries whether it's simple negotiations/alliances or more aggressive tactics in dealing with our enemies and enemies of our allies.

    Israel has nuclear weapons of its own. They don't advertise it because they think it's in their advantage to play it closer to their chest. If Iran gets a nuke, Israel can defend themselves.

    Besides, this line is hilarious. Which President has been able to stop the tide of proliferation? Need I remind Conservatives who was President when North Korea got theirs?

    Obama. But this isn't really fair, he's also my pick against Romney, Gingrich, Perry, and, especially, Rick Santorum. I despise his ideas, but I appreciate Ron Paul for being consistent and driven by a set of ideas and not what's most electable (like the piece of plastic that is the GOP frontrunner).

    Jon Huntsman would make me think long and hard, but I will be spared that by the GOP's refusal to nominate a moderate.

    No, he'd be a mitigated disaster. Obama is an unmitigated disaster.
