More Ron Paul

  • Wired - "How a Fringe Politician Took Over the Web
  • Interviewed at length by Tom Ashbrook on On Point. If you want to know more about Ron Paul, start here.

    Some gems:

    Ashbrook: Congressman, what about it? You say, "No Department of Education," "No Department of Homeland Security," "No Department of Energy," "No" to abortion, "No" to gun control... "No" to immigration reform. You are Dr. No.

    Paul: Well, I'm Dr. Yes for the constitution and I'm Dr. Yes for liberty... I approach all of those positions through the Constitution because it's the only oath I take... So I see no place in the constitution for the department of education. I also see that it's not doing a very good job.


    "...Containment has worked before. We stood down the Soviets with 40,000 nuclear weapons... We didn't have to fight them. But here we're going after countries with nuclear weapons and they don't even have nuclear weapons."

Ron Paul has three main points in his opposition to the war, neither of which are the position of any of the Democratic candidates.

The first is that the Constitution of the United States specificly forbids going to war without Congress declaring war. (Article I, Section 8)

Second, he is disturbed by the shift in public policy from the Christian "Just War Theory" to one of "Preemptive War".

And finally, the war and the stationing of our troops over seas is bankrupting our nation and placing our own nation at risk of invasion. Therefore, he wants to bring them home to defend our own borders.
