    ending the empire <> isolationism.

    pathetic attempt at hyperbole duly noted.

    I do not happen to agree with Ron Paul on some things (mostly the idea that there should be almost no government), but I like him more than most politicians out there.

    Besides, it may be interesting for someone to see one's post in 2 years time.

    I don't think he's crazy. I don't even necessarily think his ideas are "extreme". I think they're different. And maybe, in some areas, different is what we need. We've alternated with traditional GOP leadership and traditional Dem leadership and we're sort of seesawed between different versions of suck for the last few decades. Maybe we should stop trying to prove how right our ideas are and give somebody a chance to lead us through a new approach.

    Also, it would serve us all to remember that the President doesn't vote on, write, or sponsor legislation. He can offer his opinion, but he can't force his hand. Even executive orders have limited power. I don't see Ron Paul, especially given his record, empowering the office of President further than it already has been. His ideas on limited federal government have been consistent for years and I have seen no indication that being President would change that. So even if you think is foreign policy ideas are all wrong, you have to remember he's gotta work with the legislative branch to make major changes.

    Your confusing Paul with Cold War throwback Pat Buchanan. Isolationism and nonintervention are two different things

    he knows.

    but you have to understand, when you are living in Taiwan, the idea of the United States not meddling in the affairs of other countries is a terrifying thing to ponder. His bias towards policy that benefits him personally trumps longstanding views on a humble, conservative foreign policy.

    and once he picked the side that benefits him personally, he will use any form of dishonest rhetoric to keep the charade going, such as labeling this isolationism.
