Ron Paul does not want to cut defense. Ron Paul wants to cut offense.Submitted by harrisbradley on Thu, 10/27/2011 - 19:05
I was listing to Free Talk Live (a great online freedom loving audio show) today and the radio host said something that stuck me as a good way to describe things. He said "a defensive military is less expensive than an offensive military."
That hit home for me and for the caller. I thought this would be a good way for the doctor to phrase it when he often say, "I don't want to cut one penny from defense." I know we've all heard that line before. It's the followup, when he tries to explain what he does want to cut.
Now, to be clear, I'm only talking about the elevator speech. If the good doctor gets time to explain, then so he should, but some of these interviews are quick and the person interviewing is doing their best to rush him, or possibly if his turn is ending in a debate.
Just food for thought. Check out Free Talk Live if you can.
