I had just recently today posted my thoughts on the RP foreign policy questions for the debates tonight and tomorrow.  But this article beats it all!  Highlights:


“For this position, I have been maligned. You see, in opposing all ‘government welfare,’ I logically oppose foreign aid to Israel, our long-time ally. But in this respect, as in so many others, I have been treated most unjustly, for far from being an enemy of Israel, I am among her greatest friends. Unlike my colleagues on stage tonight, I seek Israel’s independence. I long for her self-reliance. Israel indeed has ‘a right to exist,’ but this right in turn demands of the rest of the world, including ourselves, that it regard her as the sovereign nation that she is. But as long as Israel is materially dependent upon America, her sovereignty is denied.”


“No, if my fellow candidates are really so concerned about keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of the Iranian government — something about which they have been talking for years — then it can be nothing less than war that is on their minds. As President, and as a former member of the armed services, I do not share their preoccupation. Before I separate American families once more by sending the sons and daughters of our war wearied nation into but another bloody conflict, I will need a better reason than what we have been presented with thus far — even if my colleagues insist on treating it, as they treated the evidence for Hussein’s ‘weapons of mass destruction,’ as a self-evident proposition.”

Strong national defense or isolationism:

“Second, there are various contexts within which going on offense serves its purpose. Unfortunately for my critics — and the country — the context of American foreign policy is not one of them. The offensive wars in which they have engaged our country have most certainly not done a thing to keep us safe. Far from it: they have resulted in the loss of more American lives — the lives of our soldiers — and rendered us a greater object of hatred than ever before. Also, far from ‘spreading liberty,’ these offensive wars have spread chaos and destruction abroad while contracting our liberty here at home.

Jack Kerwick, Ph.D. has eloquent answers to the sure unfair questions and comments his opponents place at Cong. Paul.  He should be used right away by the campaign.  I’ll give up my spot!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
