A Just War is

a last resort...should be few and far between...I appreciate our soldiers...I wish we had a leadership that respected their devotion and most importantly respected their lives.

Ron Paul is the only candidate who advocates the CORRECT reasons a country should engage in any battle and the proper use of a military.

The situation today is 100% out of control - the blood on the hands of those cupable will be an irremovable stain that will haunt them for eternity.

Ron Paul - pro-life from conception 'til departure.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

I like your slogan

about Ron Paul. :)

Self-Rule = Self-Health + Self-Expression + Self-Defense

If one of these are licensed or controlled by the state or by any collective authority then there cannot be free-enterprise.

I think the Catholic Church has a lot to learn regarding "turn the other cheek" (well depending on the age of the cheek of course). The latter criminals historically were either sent to "other" parishes or given permanent holiday + pension. Prior to the 90's families were never compensated rather lectured on keeping the "sanctity" of the church (the fraud alive).

If we wish to consult with men of true non-violence we are better to consult with the Going-to-Hell (according to Catholicism) Satyagrahi's -- Gandhi's Followers.

Now those guys were "of Christ" in a real sense.

A lot of Catholics inlist in the military and there are a lot of Catholic Chaplins giving mass on foreign and domestic military bases -- NEVER (and I've been) do they talk about non-violence.

Maybe it's the remnant energy of the Crusades? Or maybe it's the casual support they gave Hitler during WWII; as a book banning machine why did they not ban Mein Kempf?

hmmmmm...
