McPain agreed with Dr. Paul in 1983Submitted by armed_neutrality on Sun, 09/07/2008 - 04:55
I am currently doing research for an assignment in my macroeconomics class on the topic of which presidential candidate would provide the best panacea for our ailing economy. My professor would only accept essays about McPain/Obama, but he's not a complete Stalinist and I was able to reach a compromise with him. I am going to do 2 papers; one about how reckless both Obama/McPain's stated policies would be if enacted and one expounding on Dr. Paul's philosophy of blending Austrian Economics with a neutral foreign policy. Anyhow, to make a long story short, I started reading A Foreign Policy of Freedom and found this interesting little piece of info on pg. 24:
This is from Dr. Paul's speech in 1983 about the bombing of the American Embassy in Lebanon;
"I agree with the gentleman from Arizona in the other body who is calling for the withdrawal of U.S. Marines from Lebanon. As this gentleman wisely points out, the day that one U.S. Marine is killed, we will have to answer the question. What do we do?"
Maybe for a brief period McPain forgot to take his Neocon Mood Stabilizer.
