Your right OKIE on serious foriegn policy issues. I see the seriousness of staying in the middle east and inciting more American hatred and causing us further problems down the road. There are serious threats to be dealt with of which not doing enough is disasterous as another war could be the final nail in the coffin. We won't be militarily defeated, but much like the Soviets we will economically defeat ourselves. Much agree on your second point. A Paul presidency would be the start of a political revolution as to define the role of government in our lives and our willlingness to pay for it. As we have gotten here over 100 years it can not be restored over night. If there were NO income tax withholdings and everyone wrote a check to the IRS the people would demand far more accountability. Most people would want to pay less and expect alot less, or demand alittle more cost effectiveness.
