Ron Paul vs. George W.

Mark K, you have a bad habit of putting words in my mouth. Did I say the only reason to oppose Ron Paul was an endorsement by a radical newspaper that rejects virtually every part of the war on terrorism? If so, please tell us where. There are many, many reasons to oppose him. Moreover, how is pointing to defects in George Bush’s pre- 9/11 statements and positions a justification for Paul’s positions? Did you vote for Bush in 2000? Are you voting for Paul in this election? Do you see a difference? Or do you find them comparable? I see many reasons to oppose Paul, starting with his perverse view that America is the reason the Islamo-Nazis hate us. Back to you. And try and stick to the point.
