How Ron Paul should Cover his isolationist stanceSubmitted by ebb on Sun, 08/14/2011 - 12:04
I really think that RP's stance on non-interventions is going to be a problem. If I could give some advice to anyone trying to defend this I would tell critics that RP is a conservative who isn't a hawk. I think there are a lot of republicans and conservatives who feel that way inside. I happen to be one of them who didn't like Bush's Axis of Evil speech. Saying you are not a hawk still allows you to have the conservative label.
The second thing I would do is to point out that non-interventions was the conservative philosophy of the 20th century. Pull out newsreals of republicans disagreeing with Vietnam or Korea. Go even further back to WWII and WWI. I'm sure you can find quotes for notable republicans who talked about non-intervention. Heck--go back to what the founders of this country said. That is just my recommendation on it.
