Put simply, Ron Paul is stuck in a time before we were involved in the Middle East and before we were a global economy. It is less his principles that are wrong than his application of them which ignores obvious facts. Ron Paul has a tendency to oversimplify many issues and ignore the important problem of how to do changes. He is valuable as one who names issues but he does not seem to have useable answers. We get the government some of us deserve - speak for yourself, I did not ask for what we have.
