Ron Paul is too weak on national defense. End of story. The GOP is comming around to the sound fiscal policies touted by Mr. Paul mainly because of the Tea Party movement, but Ron Paul is so out of touch with this country's long standing desire to be the most powerful military on earth. Peace through strength only works if you are not hesitant to use that power when needed. Seems like it would be much easier for Paul to change his mind on foriegn policy than for half the nation to change to suit his isolationist views.
