Ron Paul never had my vote, but now he has lost my respect.
REP. PAUL: The people who say there will be a bloodbath are the ones who said it would be a cakewalk, it would be slam dunk, and that it would be paid for by oil. Why believe them? They've been wrong on everything they've said. Why not ask the people -- (interrupted by cheers) -- why not ask the people who advise not to go into the region and into the war? The war has not gone well one bit.
So just like Schumer, Reid, Pelosi, Kucinich, Durbin etal, Ron Paul now aligns himself with the wackjob left in saying 1) President Bush is a boob and a liar, and 2) Neo Cons (the Jews!) are running our foreign policy. Then Paul ignores the history of the Congressional abandonment of South East Asia and the bloodbath that ensued.
Also Paul decides that spreading freedom is a bad thing since freeing 50+ million people in Iraq and Afghanistan has not made the war go well, not even one bit.
MR. WALLACE: So, Congressman Paul, and I'd like you to take 30 seconds to answer this, you're basically saying that we should take our marching orders from al Qaeda? If they want us off the Arabian Peninsula, we should leave? (Laughter.)
REP. PAUL: No! (Cheers, applause.) I'm saying -- (laughter) -- I'm saying we should take our marching orders from our Constitution. We should not go to war -- (cheers, applause) -- we should not go to war without a declaration. We should not go to war when it's an aggressive war. This is an aggressive invasion. We've committed the invasion of this war, and it's illegal under international law. That's where I take my marching orders, not from any enemy. (Cheers, boos.)
Now Paul has returned to his “9/11 was our fault” meme by saying this is an aggressive war. This is a war against not only those that attacked us, but also those that support terror groups throughout the world and Sadaam was a big supporter. Plus, for Paul, who calls himself a strict constructionist about the Constitution, to cite international law is laughable, just as he is becoming laughable.
REP. PAUL: The American people didn't go in. A few people advising this administration, a small number of people called the neoconservative hijacked our foreign policy. They're responsible, not the American people. They're not responsible. We shouldn't punish them. (Cheers, applause.)
MR. HUCKABEE: Congressman, we are one nation. We can't be divided. We have to be one nation under God. That means if we make a mistake, we make it as a single country, the United States of America, not the divided states of America. (Cheers.)
REP. PAUL: No. When we make a mistake -- (interrupted by applause) -- when we make a mistake, it is the obligation of the people through their representatives to correct the mistake, not to continue the mistake! (Cheers, applause.)
So now, Paul the strict constructionist, is calling for the people, through their representatives to violate the Constitution to control international relations and the rights of the Commander in Chief. Sounds like Harry Reid.
Ron Paul is no conservative, nor is he a libertarian. I don’t know what he is anymore, but he sounding like a butt boy for the likes of John Kerryand his ilk who never once looked back or shed a tear for what his kind of people did to our soldiers and the poor souls who hoped to be free of the yoke of communism in South East Asia. For that alone Mr. Paul, go to hell.
To enhance freedom, spread freedom.

US Democratic hopeful Kucinich meets Assad, blasts Bush
"I feel the United States is engaging in an illegal occupation ... I
don't want to bless that occupation with my presence," he said in an interview
in Lebanon, after visiting Syria. "I will not do it."
Doing for America what he did for Cleveland.
“Strength through Peace is vastly different from the dead end
neo-conservative ‘Peace through Strength’ doctrine which attempts to
legitimatize unilateralism, first strike and preemption. I want President Assad
to know that our congress and our nation has people who believe in direct
Building peace through betrayal, one dictator at a time. Next stop Tehran?
Peace on brother. Farm out, you weasel.
