Good Riddance. I applaud Paul's fiscal policy, I am appalled by his foreign policy. He believes in this fairy tale that if you mind your own business, other nations will do the same. Although that probably works in fantasy land, it doesn't in the real world. Just ask Obama how that worked out for the Arab Spring. Letting Iran get a nuclear device is not an option, PERIOD. Paul either forgotten or never learned in medical school that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The same goes with foreign policy.

Poland left Germany alone and Germany invaded it. and remember how the surrender at Munich brought peace in our time?

But now you have the United Nations to protect you. Right?

Sounds to me like Poland should have had a stronger military in order to defend itself.

Re: Storm13,

-- Paul either forgotten or never learned in medical school that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. --

Whemn I was about 12 years old, I started opening an anthill to try to catch their queen and start my own antfarm. I got stung so bad my arm was double the size for 2 weeks.

If when asked why I did that, I had said "An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure," my parents would have had me committed. I tell you, Storm: What kind of "prevention" is the U.S. government practicing when it gets involved in the business of other countries? The U.S. ends up getting stug, every time, and we end up poorer for it because, at the end, WE and our children have to pay for these insane forays. We're broke.

But other countries HAVE minded their own business, Storm. And even if some don't, this country doesn't have the money to keep policing the world.

Why not? What are they going to do with it, even if they could achieve making one? You have more nuclear weapons in Pakistan, a much more volatile country, yet nobody is talking about bombing them.

See my response to Kuwull below...and then see the ridicule and inability to articulate a cogent response.

Hey OldMex-

Here's another one that did their research about Ron by watching cartoons all day.

lol, proving my comments about purist libertarians wanting, indeed needing to mock every chance they get.

Who said I was a libertarian?

All I know so far is that I have much more in common with them than the current republicans. I am calling myself a Constitutionalist for now. Certainly leaning the libertarian direction, but I only know about libertarian ideas from what libertarians post. I like most everything they say.

Presidential candidate and long time Representative Ron Paul said goodbye yesterday on the House floor as he prepares to make his exit from Congress after 23 years. He explained his consistent views throughout the past two decades and berated Washington for refusing to change or make hard decisions when it comes to the future. 

As the father of what many characterize as the buoyant, bi-partisan New Liberty Movement, Paul shared “the plain truth” about Washington, America’s current national crisis and the greatest threats to the future.

Paul began by explaining his goals in 1976:...
