Paul, Newt, Romney and Obama Military Service, Draft, Patriot Act and Foreign PolicySubmitted by Doug Eberhardt on Wed, 01/04/2012 - 12:57
Says to bring our troops home - same thing he said last election
On the Draft; No reinstatement of the Draft (only because of our world dominance with troops in 130 different countries results in a possible troop shortage)
Military Service; Active duty flight surgeon from 1963-65; Air National Guard from 1965-68
Wants to end the Patriot Act restoring liberty in America.
Wants to attack Iran "Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said as president he’d order covert operations to stop the Iranian regime from building nuclear weapons, with options including “taking out their scientists” and “breaking the regime and bringing it down.”And he added, “all of it (is) deniable,” that is, he as president would deny that the United States was behind the operations."
On the Draft; “I propose that we take the World War II model of the selective service program,” Gingrich said, according to Yahoo News. “In World War II, local community citizens judged who ought to be drafted and who shouldn’t . . . . It requires trusting citizens rather than bureaucrats. It’s a jury system for local communities,” Gingrich said.
Military Service; Did Not Serve - some say dodged the draft
Wants to strengthen the Patriot Act and take away more liberty (all hail the government saviors)
His Campaign promise to end the war in Iraq being the first thing he would do has still not been accomplished and he has sent in about 40,000 more troops into Afghanistan and bombing Pakistan via drones. He says that going after Al Qaeda in Pakistan is not Bush-style invasion. Now 170 million Pakistanis hate us because of the hundreds of drone strikes that 140 innocent civilians for 1 CIA-alleged terrorist killed. No blowback there.
Military Service; Did Not Serve
There is a reason why so many youth vote for Ron Paul. He is the only candidate concerned about their future.
