Washington Times: Ron Paul is Dangerously wrong

Is Rep. Ron Paul the future of the conservative movement? If last week's annual meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is any barometer, the sad answer may be yes.

The 2008 Republican presidential nominee and libertarian hero decisively won CPAC's presidential straw poll. He captured 31 percent of the 2,400 votes cast, handily defeating the runner-up, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who received 22 percent. Sarah Palin ranked a distant third.


article seems ok until half way through where his neocon attack comes...

..."however, he is wrong - dangerously wrong. His opposition to the "welfare-warfare state" is misguided. A strong national defense is crucial to America's survival, especially in an age of global Islamic terrorism"...

..."In an age of nuclear weapons and fanaticism, no nation is safe. Moreover, borrowing from the new left of the 1960s, Mr. Paul believes America has become an "empire." He argues that we brought the Sept. 11 attacks "upon ourselves" because of our "imperialist" policies in the Middle East."

I know a number of Muslims,

I know a number of Muslims, which I cannot say has always been the case, and I can assure you that Mr. Paul's views are spot on: when it comes to understanding the problem with America on middle east policies.

People are people and unfortunately the ignorance of Americans, towards the rest of the world's hatred for American values, is totally misunderstood: because America doesn't do well at listening to others.

America, as well as Canada and many other first world nations, is destroying the essence of family and unity in this world, with its money system and its divide and conquer mentality: which is at the very heart of the breakdown of traditional family values.

We cannot have a divide and conquer mentality and build a united nation: let allow planet.

Your headline confuses your intention here.

At first glance it would seem you disagree with Dr. Paul.

But further on it appears that you may be quoting or para-phrasing someone else's opinion.

I could probably decipher your intent but I don't have the time to figure out exactly what you mean.

If it is as the headline reads, you certainly would not be a classic Ron Paul supporter and would not care for this site.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

check post below for the poster's intent

I was confused as well until I read the posts below.

"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis

The headline...

is what appears on the print edition of the Washington Times, which I have a subscription to. The OP posted this article for the purpose of letting the DP readers know of its existence, so that they can critique it. The article is written by a neo-con who denounces paleoconservativism as an ideology of the past. This is an opinion that I do not agree with.

has russia suffered since leaving afghanistan?

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
