Lindsey Graham wants to start a war with Pakistan. And they say I’m nuts?

That was the gist of a conversation I had yesterday with Ron Paul in the back of his car as he was returning to the Trenton-Mercer Airport following a campaign rally at the Statehouse.

The reason I had to cram in that interview during the ride to and from the airport is that the Texas congressman is a busy man these days. He was in and out of the Trenton airport in two hours, off to New York for an afternoon appearance. He’s in Iowa today.

You can’t do that flying commercial. But thanks to the fervor and the fund-raising of his youthful supporters, Paul can lease a private jet and travel in the more efficient manner usually reserved for the Beltway elite. That means more funding and more momentum for a campaign calculated to drive the party leaders crazy.

It’s Paul’s foreign policy pronouncements that seem to bother the Beltway crowd the most. Foreign policy was the theme state Sen. Mike Doherty stressed in his introduction to Paul before a crowd of about 200 mostly young people. The Warren County Republican is a graduate of West Point and the father of three sons with military careers, so he knows a thing or two about warfare. He told the crowd the U.S. military should be used only for defensive purposes and only in declared wars.

I happy to see a positive and intelligent article posted from my home state. It's great seeing a NJ Senator endorsing him and especially on the foreign policy issue. Luckily the guy is a West Point grad and has son's in the military so they can't bash him for that one.

Praise Ron Paul

He is working so hard. We must forever thank him for how hard he is pounding those stages. I see a new video everyday. What an absolute hero

Maybe that pathetic buffoon Lindsey Graham will lead the attack. Maybe Graham will parachute into Islamabad and show us how it is done. Or maybe, he just like to shoot his mouth off.

"Remember that this year New Jersey is the first primary after the Iowa caucus, not New Hampshire."

This isn't correct in the posting you made. New Jersey has moved back their date to June I believe. New Hampshire won't let any other state become the first "Primary" after Iowa any time soon they pride themselves on it too much, even if it means moving their date into December of this year if it came to that.

This was a change that was made on Monday in NJ to reduce the associated election related costs with holding a primary so early. For more info here is a link:
