Ron Paul wants to close a lot of our more than 800 overseas military bases? But who will protect our "interests?

More like the interests of GE, Boeing, ExxonMobil, AT&T, Northrup Grumman, Goldman Sachs and the rest of the Fortune 500 who know that wars are a VERY lucrative source of income.

Legalize Drugs? Just because the alcohol Prohibition era from 1919-1933 was the cause of gang violence and political corruption doesn't mean that removing the profit incentive from marijuana and cocaine would also radically drop the amount of violence on the streets, does it?

I don't think the CIA, Britian's MI5 and Israel's MOSSAD intelligence agencies would take too kindly to legalizing drugs in the USA.
That would cut too deeply into their profits from those Afghan poppy fields and Colombian cocaine paste factories.

Paul says he would cut federal spending drastically and legalize all drugs but not tax them. He advocates the dismantling of the Federal Reserve and wants to save $1 trillion annually by closing overseas military bases and bringing troops home.

  1. In the USA, the 'independents' need to get their act together and form a political party that can win. Look what the SNP achieved in Scotland! - Aangirfan

  2. Or form a group of people who are willing to carry more than placards and signs to take back our republic!
