Dr. Ron Paul is the only candidate who has staunchly defended the constitution throughout his career. Most republicans won't vote for him because of his stand on the Iraq War. George Washington said that we should avoid entangling alliances and that is exactly what we've got ourselves into with this war. 9/11 would have never happened if our borders were secure. There are experienced border agents who are being offered huge salaries to leave their jobs guarding American soil to go to Iraq and guard the borders over there. How is that keeping us safe? I think that we should withdraw our troops and start using them to defend our borders. I think that we should follow the advice of the founding fathers. That advice has led this nation and helped it become the most powerful country in world history.

hey our whole country is a joke so why not put a comedian in the leaders spot. its better than a brain dead monkey who constantly blames iraq for everything and always looks like he is squinting because the sun is in his eyes. seriously he does blame iraq for everything

GO RON PAUL YOU ARE OUR SAVIOR
