    This is why liberals like me do have some respect for the man.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/0 … 94927.html

      I think it's a bit late to save the GOP.

        Most likely so Josak.

    President Eisenhower in his farewell speech said: "we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."  Boy was he right.  It's big business and that's one of the reasons our wars and occupations take so long.

    As fare as the Republican party goes, I think Ron Paul is referring to getting the old party back.  It's nothing like it started out.

      No Republican would ever have the guts to point out that the military and defense contractors are a little too cozy.  The party has completely lost it's soul.

    Ron Paul has become merely an asterisk in the Republican primary.  A candidate who can draw big crowds and a reasonable amount of cash but cannot deliver votes...

      Seems like both parties are now "militarists."  Where is the escape?
