The Republican Presidential candidates have been trying to exclude Ron Paul from the running, as they consider him a black sheep or pariah in the Republican Party. Well, of course he's a black sheep, in the sense that he is the only one who wears a different color philosophy than the other Party-Line-Towers. And of course he's a pariah. Ron Paul is a Libertarian, an Old-Right Republican instead of a Neocon, and is therefore an outcast in the Elephant herd.
In their feeble efforts to shut up and shut down Ron Paul, they've disparaged him by calling him, among other things, an "isolationist." This comes from the mouths of career politicians, who are supposed to be knowledgable experts on the subjects of politics, economics and philosophy. Exactly how knowledgable are these people when they can't tell the difference between an isolationist and a non-interventionist?
In a nut shell, an isolationist is one who wants to cut himself, or rather his nation off and isolate it from the rest of the world. Isolationism includes the end of trade as well. But how does Ron Paul feel about trade? He has repeatedly stated that he believes in Free Trade. And by this he means, completely and utterly free, uninterrupted, unmanaged, uninhibited, unmolested, unregulated, unfettered, uncompromised free trade with anyone and everyone, without any government interference. This is the basis of laissez-faire capitalism. Ron Paul believes that the only Fair Trade is Free Trade. This fact alone shows that Ron Paul is not an isolationist. RON PAUL IS A NON-INTERVENTIONIST.
The fact that the other Republicans have described him incorrectly means that they either do not know Ron Paul--which means they haven't done their homework, haven't paid attention, and don't care, which is a bad quality to have in a President. Or, they are simply trying to gang up on Ron Paul and smear him with lies, which is a very bad quality in a President. I mean, haven't we had enough of lying Presidents already? Or, they know him very well and are telling Americans, indirectly, that they don't believe in keeping America out of the affairs of other nations, that we should keep causing trouble around the globe which leads to blowback and backlash against the U.S.A. in the form of terrorism, and that America should keep itself in a perpetual state of war until we go bankrupt and can never recover.
None of the current candidates for the Presidency are worthy of the Office, neither from the Right nor from the Left. They are all inept, inadequate, greedy, self-serving and completely and utterly economically stupid. Ron Paul is the only candidate that makes sense, and he is not a flip-flopper. He says what he means and he means what he says. We've tried both Parties, and they've all made a mess of things.
It's been said that insanity is repeating the same failing action over and over again and expecting that next time it will somehow work. It's time to stop the insanity! We're scraping the bottom of the global barrel. Why don't we try something new? Vote for Ron Paul for President of the United States of America!
