"A man develops cancer." How so? You mean the government oppressed it's citizens, so we invaded to protect them? If that's the case then perhaps China should invade the US to protect the citizens in Ferguson? Or perhaps you mean Saddam invaded Kuwait? Didn't April Glasbie let Saddam know that his dispute with Kuwait wasn't the US's business? So Saddam invaded 1 week later. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_Glaspie Were not the cancers of Iraq and Iran fighting each other, which is no longer the case? So now the Iraquis blame the US for dead Iraquis since the US destabilized Iraq. And we've lost an ally against Iran. Didn't we create cancers in the puppets we installed in Iraq? Couldn't we have avoided all this cancer by not getting involved?

Our politicians are heavily invested in the military industrial complex (anybody remember Cheny and Haliburton?). And they make bets in the stock market based on their inside knowledge of their war plans. War increases the power of the State, and reduces our freedom and prosperity. Our politicians wouldn't be doing this if our military wasn't so powerful, because then they'd be risking their own lives. They sure aren't applying the Golden Rule to our foreign policy. Whenever we involve ourselves in another country's civil war, we will make enemies of both sides, and usually end up making enemies of both sides. Which is about how Iraqis feel towards the USA thanks to our military involvement in Iraq, where one out of every 30 people have been killed.

You should ask our soldiers, who know what's really happening over there, what they believe we should do. Because if you did, you'd find out they overwhelmingly agree with Ron Paul. But I see you'd rather believe our politicians and their propaganda. Our troops overwhelming gave their cash to Ron Paul while he was still a presidential candidate, so much so that those donations were more than the donations to all other candidates of both parties. Why don't you support our troops, rather than support the policies of Obama and Bush? Our troops have been telling us, that our involvement is just helping Al Quaeda to recruit more terrorists.

"20 years of good will" You are mistaken about good will. Iraqi opinion of the US has continually declined since our involvement there. A million lost lives, that wouldn't have been lost, has a lot to do with it.

How is it that Paul is helping Iraq go to hell? He voted against going to war in Iraq, and was the only Republican presidential candidate who was right about it. Hussein wasn't a threat to the USA, though he did want his enemies to think he had WMDs. Isn't it our actions that have brought hell to Iraq? A hell that is worse for the Iraqi citizens than under Hussein, and worse for us as well. And we've also hanged an ally against Iran. And to be clear, Hussein was oppressive as well. But he never attacked the USA. Finally, you should read about April Glaspie, a US diplomat, who Hussein on July 25 1990, told Saddam that James Baker (Bush's chief of staff) and the US "that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America." Saddam then proceded to invade Kuwait 8 days later.

So who in Iraq attacked the USA? Let me know who the enemy was that led to killing millions, the loss of thousands of US soldiers and even more of their limbs, and trillions of dollars? From what I see, the cure for the supposed enemy is worse than the enemy.

Ron Paul retired from government. Now like many elder statesmen, he is imparting his wisdom and knowledge to others via the media. His philosophy is not one of "checking out from current events to himself" unlike Obama who's philosophy is to lie about current events to enrich himself at our expense.
If Republicans promote politicians like Boehner whose campaign website says he's leading the fight to defund and repeal Obamacare, but who then voted to fund Obamacare, that will help ensure the Democrats retain control. Boehner likes Obamacare, and lies that he's against it. Those are the Republicans who are all for selling favors to the 1% rich, who return a kickback in campaign cash. And it won't help elect Republicans.

Social issues are not a financial issue for me or my familiy. We've worked hard and have provided for our needs. Your social desire to make me responsible for others' actions and to take care of them, is a financial issue for me and my family.

Do you support the right of a majority to fine/jail those whose actions have harmed no one or their property? I think not, because you fail to distinguish beween issues in this way. And you're making a mistake, because by doing so, you'll be relegated to a liberal government that will force their values on you, contrary to your values. E.G., you'll be fined for not providing contraception and abortions in your health plans for your employees. And your children will be taught all about homosexuality and how they have sex in your government school. Frankly, I'd rather have freedom, where people can do what they want provided they don't harm others. Even if it offends me. Just as our founders defended free speech. Something social consevatives show they don't support, by wanting to jail those who burn a flag they own, among other actions that don't harm others.
