Letter: Paul stands up for the Constitution * Posted July 5, 2011 at 12:04 a.m.Submitted by DeMolay on Tue, 07/05/2011 - 03:12
Why is Dr. Ron Paul so frequently termed "an isolationist, extreme, fringe or marginal candidate"? An isolationist refuses any alliances, foreign trade or economic commitments, or international agreements. Paul is simply against pre-emptive aggression since it is the way of all dictatorships. He is against building bridges in other countries, while our country can't afford our own new bridges. What's wrong with voting only the Constitution? Why is the next sentence so frequently to remind voters that this is his third run for the presidency or that he would be the oldest president inducted into office? Why not mention that he was the only candidate endorsed by Ronald Reagan and that it took Reagan a third bid before becoming president and that the Republican leadership also opposed Reagan?
