Well, I agreed with Ron Paul's policies except for his constant admonition against becoming the police force of the world.
In life, there are always bullies and always someone who stands up to the bullies. You've seen this played out countless times in the schoolyard. Sorry to say, the United States is the country other countries turn to when they're being bullied. If it wasn't that the rest of the world perceives America to be their only hope against brutal dictatorships, there would be many more brutal dictatorships in the world and those dictatorships would eventually set sail for our shores. That's just the nature of evil.
I waver on this one personally.
I am not sure that there would be many more brutal dictatorships in the world or not. However, and I am certain that there would be someone helping maintain order. Would that be a good thing?
