    If we signed treaties to obey international law, then that is the law of the land and we must do so. Making treaty and then doing otherwise is simply dishonest.

    The UN results in a loss of sovereignty because we become subject to some of their will. Look at the crazy things that they have come up with that they want us to do. The UN should only be about preserving peace, but it has expanded itself and so we should not be a part of it.

    What are you talking about....with regards to treaties? And you don't think we produce anything except weapons here? All your friends work in weapons factories or what?

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    Glad to see Ron is winning this poll.

    Take it from Judge Nap:

    We do not have two political parties in this country, America. We have one party; called the Big Government Party. The Republican wing likes deficits, war, and assaults on civil liberties. The Democratic wing likes wealth transfer, taxes, and assaults on commercial liberties. Both parties like power; and neither is interested in your freedoms. Think about it. Government is the negation of freedom. Freedom is your power and ability to follow your own free will and your own conscience. The government wants you to follow the will of some faceless bureaucrat.

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    Ron Paul's policies would certainly be brought closer to the middle by Congress. I don't like his foreign policy. I'm not a neo-con, but I'm also not a complete non-interventionist. I like his domestic policy, but he shouldn't try to do everything at once even if it was politically possible. The man wants to make huge changes to our government. I'm generally on board with him, but it will take time.

    Ron Paul. I agree with him on far more issues than Barrack Obama including foreign policy.

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    I voted Ron Paul, but I wonder if I'd vote for Obama after a year into Paul's presidency. I have many issues with libertarianism.

    Well I'd be more than happy to settle those issues.
