Ron Paul's stance on foreign affairs





For me as a european, who lives in the Balkans and doesn't feel european, this man's view on foreign affairs makes me respect him and it makes me hope that his ideas will be shared more within the american people, even though I'm against austrian economics and Ron is one, his approach to foreign relations makes me see past that. I agree that foreign aid should cease if it will be replaced with a true free trade system in which surpluses can enter regions with deficits and provide jobs and overall a better living standard and better prospects for the future.

RE: Ron Paul's stance on foreign affairs

I'm the opposite, I like his economic principles but I detest his foreign policy, and the economic principles do not lead me to look past that.

I can almost guarantee:
1. Ron Paul would never be elected President
2. If he was to be elected (nearly impossible) he would be assassinated. Most likely by the CIA.

I wouldn't agree with it, but he'd be a dangerous man to have in the White House, so I could see it happening.

I correct myself, it would not be a constitutional state if a elected President would be killed by a secret agency because he is considered 'dangerous' ...

RE: Ron Paul's stance on foreign affairs

why dangerous?

I don't know, if he just takes this positions in order to be different from the other candidates, in order to get a profile, that's recognizable. But I must say, I like his view on foreign politics.

I mean Bush was a horror, and Obama is a just betraying the voters (I just say NDAA). If Ron Paul would be President and keeps his promises, than I see a great international future of cooperation instead of exploitation.

But I also fear, that it's most unlikely that he'll win. All the interviews I saw, the interviewer just tried (most of the times really obviously) to turn Ron Paul's words around, while for example the bullshit of this Bachmann woman has been taken for granted (mostly, but there are also some hilarious interviews with her Tongue). I think that there are "forces", that do not want him to be President, so no matter if he'd have a chance without this interference, he is most likely not going to win the elections...

Romney 2012-2020!!!!!

Lol, I couldn't help myself.
At this point, I am tired of Obama's policies. The unemployment rate for youth is unacceptable. The massive amounts of money he borrowed that future generations of Americans (who aren't even born yet) will have to repay and his haughty attitude (execution of Awlaki, the whole Healthcare debate, etc) have turned any sympathy I had for him into extreme dislike and disappointment.

As for Ron Paul, I don't think he'd be executed. My friend put it rather well:

The current administration is stuck in a deadlock. The House is GOP, the Senate and POTUS are Dem.

If Ron Paul wins, the political spectrum will lie in a more center-right way. Seriously, no president actually gets all the things they want. Most of Paul's policies he'd LIKE to implement would be greatly watered down. You would indeed see spending curtailed and the military presence greatly reduced and (heck) maybe even a balanced budget for once. But you won't see this all happen on Day One. It will be in increments throughout his first term.

Personally, I'm deciding between Romney and Paul. I like what Paul stands for and his policies but I think Romney could unite the country more as he is more center than either Obama or Paul.

So the only thing that maintains institutional rule of law in the US is the guarantee of foreign wars for petrol? A peaceful president going against the oligarchical establishment, by normalizing relations with foreign countries, by pulling troops, by saving trillions in debt on the long run and adopting a free trade policy and removing trade sanctions (which hurt only the lower and middle classes anyway, not the upper ones) is considered dangerous.
