We all know the Elephant in the Room

Ron Paul wants an evenhanded policy in the Middle East and with the rest of the world in general. The Zionist lobby wants to maintain total control over both parties and continue our multi-billion dollar support to this hostile, aggressive, rogue state; and then multi-billions to their enemies to counter balance all the one-sided additional support they get in military equipment and political favoritism. Zionist hegemony is directly tied to our presence in the region as much as oil (which if anything is overemphasized by the left), not to mention our invasions of neighboring countries which they constantly influence us to get involved in (Iran is next on the list). Until Paul people make this connection they are fighting blind. perhaps the # 1 problem Paul is blacked out in the media is because he is going up against the twin powers of Zionism/military industrial complex which are tied at the hip. the MSM are owned by people partial to this political affiliation. We all have to decide if we are going to be "constitutional" and follow the advice of the founders in having no "entangling alliances" -or are we going to capitulate to a the disproportionate influence of a foreign nation. If this issue wasn't directly related to our wars and if we didn't hypocritically threaten war on a country that has not attacked anyone in 300 years for their "capability" and potential in making 1 nuke when Israel has 2-300 (Mordechai Vanunu, whistleblower) and refuses to join the IAEA, then I'd say "keep Paul out of it." We either wake the U.S. up on this or not - but don't have an anti-war and non-interventionist platform and then say "you can't go protest the leading lobby promoting war and aggression and using U.S. soldiers as human shields for their expansionist/imperialistic policies. This country has attacked a U.S. ship (the U.S.S. Liberty) killing twenty-something soldiers, spied on us (jonathan j. pollard, lavon affair), sold our technology to China (Pat Buchanan has written about this), and extorts billions off U.S. taxpayers - they are not a "friend" but a usurper, and have caused more harm to our relations with the rest of the world than anything else in the last few decades. I have no patience for Christian Zionists and their crazy apocalyptic fantasies. We may see a real WWIII/nuclear holocaust if we continue to push the buttons of other major powers (Russia/China) that are sick of seeing us meddle in other nations on behalf of a tiny apartheid state that has found a way to manipulate us to do their bidding, contrary to the Chomsky "we use them for our own colonialism" argument. We gain nothing from our "special relationship" but debt, war, hatred redirected from the Arab/muslim world and international resentment, as well as dead and wounded (physically/psychologically) U.S. soldiers. A huge part of Ron Paul's appeal is his authenticity and not being a tool to lobbyists and other interests - by not standing on this issue he has no differentiation from all the other Republican (and Democratic) politicians who lick the @#$& this criminal state.

there is no left or right, only system and anti-system.
