Ron Paul: the Only Candidate to Condemn Racial Profiling at CNN Debate
Fear mongering and sabre rattling were on full display as Republican presidential candidates bickered about national security at last night’s CNN debate.
Yes, there were warnings about evil Iran wanting to destroy Israel, rumblings over shady Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal, loads of discussion about securing our borders from scary Mexicans and even a little mention of AIDS aid to Africa, which Rick Santorum callously equated not with human goodness, but national security.
“The work that we’ve done in stabilizing that area, while humanitarian in nature, was absolutely essential for our national security,” he said, because “Africa was a country on the brink.” (Country? Really?)
