  •  He'd be all for Drones with Corporate logos (5+ / 0-)

    Or with confederate flags.

    He just hates FEDERAL drones.

    •  Yup. (0+ / 0-)

      He is a staunch advocate for bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran just like McCain and his warmongering father.

      •  You keep saying that (9+ / 0-)

        Where ever did you come up with the conclusion that Ron Paul is a warmonger? He voted against the Iraq war, he's not interested in a war with Iran

        Q: If Israel attacked Iran to prevent Tehran from getting nuclear weapons, would you help?
        PAUL: I wouldn't do that, because I don't expect it to happen. A Mossad leader said it would be the stupidest thing to do in the world. They're not about to do this. And you're supposing that if it did, why does Israel need our help? We need to get out of their way. When they want to have peace treaties, we tell them what they can do because we buy their allegiance and they sacrifice their sovereignty to us. And then they decide they want to bomb something, that's their business, but they should suffer the consequences. When they bombed the Iraqi nuclear site, back in the '80s, I was one of the few in Congress that said it's none of our business and Israel should take care of themselves. Why do we have this automatic commitment that we're going to send our kids and send our money endlessly to Israel?
        Q: How do you prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon? Is it worth going to war to prevent that?
        Paul: No, it isn't worthwhile. The only way you would do that is, you would have to go through Congress. We as commander in chief aren't making the decision to go to war. You know, the old-fashioned way, the Constitution, you go to the Congress and find out if our national security is threatened. And I'm afraid what's going on right now is similar to the war propaganda that went on against Iraq. They didn't have weapons of mass destruction. And it was orchestrated and it was, to me, a tragedy of what's happened these last ten years, the death and destruction, $4 trillion in debt. So no, it's not worthwhile going to war. If you do, you get a declaration of war and you fight it and you win it and get it over with.

      It's not drones and mindless murder that he opposes... appearances are deceiving with Rand Paul.
