Democrats and Republicans Lusting for War - Not Ron Paul

the War Party 2008 Remember, I'm the sort of ex-Democrat who worked his ass off for John Kerry in '04 but now I'm so disgusted with the party that I've skipped all of the latest debates. I turns out that I didn't miss much:
Rather than avoid all foreign political entanglements, as would [Ron] Paul, the Democratic frontrunners promise to extend them. All three, to quote Edwards, hope to exercise “American leadership to forge powerful alliances-with longtime allies and reluctant friends, with nations already living in the light of democracy and with peoples struggling to join them.” In contrast to Paul, they do not intend to scale down foreign American bases, much less reconsider the merits of George McGovern’s old dream to “Come Home America.” As Obama puts it, the United States “cannot afford to be a country of isolationists right now....we need to maintain a strong foreign policy, relentless in pursuing our enemies and hopeful in promoting our values around the world." Woodrow Wilson could not have said it better.

Yeah, Woodrow Wilson, the dumbfuck asshole who lied us into World War I on the premise that it would be "the war to end all wars", yeah right.
As time goes on I can only see Ron Paul as the best alternative to the same political bullshit we've been fed by both of the major parties. Liberty, sound money, peace and free markets sounds so much better than violence, war, government coercion, lies and empty promises.

Ron Paul is a nice guy and all, but if you want a real candidate with real values, then you want Hillary Clinton. We need some change in America and we need it now.

Seriously, it sounds like all of you are seeking someone who can take charge and be a leader. Hillary Clinton has 8 years experience in the White House. Can you say that about any other candidate?

I like to look at America as a suffering patient, where Hillary is an experienced doctor. What we need here is some good medicine.

Hillary is an admirable woman, but enough is enough. The Bush clan dates back to 1981 with Reagan. Do you really want 30 years of Clinton and Bush? It's time for a change. We need new ideas and thinking in the Oval Office. Not the status quo.
