The vowed inaction of a Ron Paul administration in which he allows those who yearn to destroy our very way of life is irresponsible and frankly, unacceptable. I wish we could all just get along and I would love to not ever have to involve ourselves into another foreign struggle, but that is just not the world we live in.
I would agree that in an ideal world, the United States would keep their noses out of others business and we likely should have never been in Iraq. But when you have a country such as Iran, that open preaches the merits of martyrdom coupled with an open hatred for western values (these guys have openly stated they would love to blow Israel right off the map), there is no room for educated debate on the subject and the threat of mutual destruction, as in the case of the arms race with the Soviet Union, does not work to deter the inevitable use of such weapons. Let’s face it, these people don’t care if they die so what is to stop them from erasing those they openly detest from existence. A world in which Iran has a nuclear weapon is a much more unsafe world.
I don’t advocate all out war but we have to be involved in covert efforts to prevent them from obtaining these weapons. Inaction is unacceptable. And as far as our economy being broken by getting involved imagine our what would happen to the markets if an Iran with nuclear weapons cut off the supply of oil to the world. Hmm
A president that does not actively seek to hinder our obvious and open enemies from obtaining weapons of mass destruction is doing all but ensuring destruction and inevitable mass murder of our friends and allies. I can’t accept that and neither should you. His positions on foreign policy are frankly naive at best and surely far left of Obama. I think that his fiscal policies are spot on and I think they would make him top choice to manage the federal reserve but utterly unelectable as commander in chief and president of the United States.
