  •  What difference does that make? (0+ / 0-)

    Also, Paul only brings up these war issues and drug in debates to attract liberal vote. I remember him once saying "my goal is to bring the youth vote Republican". Only recently has he been a major anti-war advocate (though he was always libertarian leaning., he voted for the Afghanistan War and supported Ronald Reagan). By supporting him, you play right into his hands.

    Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

    •  Would you disagree with the assessment that (0+ / 0-)

      — to take just one concrete issue — regarding war with Iran (be it the secret one the Obama administration is already waging, or outright bombing by the U.S. or Israel), there isn't that much actual difference between the President's and Romney's positions?

      Do you think that in a democracy it's wrong for voters to want to see a real difference in the two parties' foreign policy positions once in a while?

      The Dutch kids' chorus Kinderen voor Kinderen wishes all the world's children freedom from hunger, ignorance, and war.

        ...that Ron Paul has ABSOLUTELY ZERO CHANCE OF BECOMING PRESIDENT? EVER. PERIOD. END OF DISCUSSION.

        Give it up. Get practical. Here's all the reason you need to do so: http://owsposters.tumblr.com/...

        Obama is not waging a "secret war", he is just imposing sanctions on an unstable country. Yes, he put war on the table, but that was for negotiation purposes. He's made it clear that all diplomatic measures will be tried and that war would be a last resort.

        Meanwhile, Mitt Romney says that he would immediately go to war (before Iran would do anything) without Congressional approval. For the President to be able to do that without any authorization of military force would be ridiculous (at least in Libya we were in there under a foreign treaty).

        If you don't think there is a difference between Romney and Obama, then you don't understand how American politics works.

      •  No, I do not agree with anything in your statement (0+ / 0-)

        First, there is no "secret" war Obama is waging against Iran.  Second, there are huge, major economic and social differences between Obama and Romney.   You must not be paying attention.

        Rand Paul is not a viable candidate for anything.
