Ron Paul: Due Process For Everyone US Citizen or NotSubmitted by JRothschild on Wed, 05/16/2012 - 23:53
This is one of the topics that attracts foreigners like myself to Ron Paul. For many of us, the trigger that caused great admiration for the man was during a candidate debate when he suggested the golden rule of foreign politics in the face of an American audience that booed him for even suggesting Christian principles in foreign affairs. For me, this was America showing its real face: The US rules, the world follows. Morality stops at American borders.
And yet, here was this grandpa-like politician on stage preaching values that are common to all people of the world: The golden rule.
Today Ron Paul is once again causing an embarrassment to mainstream Americans by speaking out and pushing for policy for the rights of prisoners, Americans or not!
Can you believe that this is 2012 and not 1939 Poland?
This sort of news is hitting one out of the baseball park when it comes to attracting foreign support. Sadly, this may not be the case for attracting support within the USA.
Please tell me I'm wrong. :-(
