Very well-said. Of course, we'll get the guys who think some yet to be named country will kick our teeth in, the moment we stop intervening in the affairs of the entire globe.
If a tree falls in a forest, and nobody is there to hear it, does it make any sound?
No applause, no boos, no heckling, no coughs, not even a hiccup or a burp from the empty chamber.
Good job on muffling the echoes from all of the empty chairs, because the real congressmen were busy working elsewhere. Even the crickets were asleep.

Nice shoes, Doc!.......
Talking crazyness, as usual. He even criticizes the actions of BOTH republicans and democrats! He's got to pick a side: conservative or progressive. He's either with us, or against us...or with them, or against them...or, well...
I'll listen to it again to see if I can find anything else wrong...because it makes too much sense to be right.
[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyX2kXeFUlo"]1936 NEWS: EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE OF ETHIOPIA ADDRESSES LEAGUE OF NATIONS - YouTube[/ame]
Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia did got applause, heckling and maybe even hiccups, during his address in League of Nations, but probably, same as Ron Paul speech, nobody wanted to hear it. And we all know the rest of the story...
No comparison between the success of a leader who ruled his country as Regent and then Emperor for 58 years, from 1916 to 1974, and a career congressman who never led anything more than a couple of failed national campaigns.
Well, except for the part about stoned Rastafarians worshipping Haile Selassie as their messiah, and Ronulans.....well, you know.
If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there....... what happens to all the nuts?

And it all comes back to those wascally neocons. He is a parody of himself. "Peace, trade and friendship." Yep, that's the answer to all our foreign policy problems. What a dope.
I know what you mean. Things are going beautifully the way we've been dealing with things the last few decades.
Our policy of losing fights and getting Americans killed for no reason is much better than what Ron Paul suggests.
Yep, thats right. Weve never, ever tried diplomacy and sanctions to effect change in the international community. We always, immediately resort to military action without even trying another approach. Ever.
And we sure did try to control Iraqs oil, just like we controlled Kuwaits oil after the first Gulf War. Thats what its all been about, control of the oil by the greedy neojews, I mean neocons. And now we own Iraq and control all of its vast oil reserves. Sure.
Ron Pauls ideas only sound logical if you ignore history and accept all his premises about what has been tried in the past. It works on the ignorant and naïve, but not on people with a historical perspective. Sorry to disappoint you Paulistas but you need to read more.
Be careful about saying the "D-word" in front of his supporters. They're touchy about that.
We go to Afghanistan with a coalition to take care of those who attacked us;
We start the War On Terror with hopes of preventing islamic terrorism;
We go into Iraq with a 'coalition of the willing', and take our eye off the ball;
The damage is done, and hard line conservative islamists are getting stronger.
Who's Ron Paul?
Is he that liberaltarian guy who ran for president twice and was soundly rejected both times by the American voter?
So why were we in Iraq in 2003? Why are we still in Afghanistan protecting their opium fields? How are America's interests served by bribing third-world savages and getting Americans killed in the process?
To enforce the 1991 cease fire agreement, to deny Saddam Hussein WMD (we found some, but never enough to convince the LIBs, some were allegedly removed before we got there) and to kill a BUNCH of jihad minded military aged males. To dispel the impression that unvited the 9/11 attacks, that we were a paper tiger. Those parts worked.
Paul's neo-isolationist foreign policy is built on a fallacy, that if we leave other countries alone, they will return the favor. If you want to run a war like an accountant, we have all these nukes we've already paid for, that have a shelf life, and we have more than we need. Just use those to break an opponent, then leave it for their neighbors to pick the carcass clean.
It would be cheaper.
More than twice; his make-believe presidential hoaxes go back at least to 1988 even if most of his childish followers don't.
Good, as long as there are less than 19 jihad minded miltary aged males left in the world, we should be quite safe. And the minor side effect that the war shifted the balance of power in the region to Iran so that it could wildly accelerate its real WMD production isn't worth mentioning.
