Let us ignore the label of neo-conservative for a moment, and deal with this honestly.

Did you just call Ron Paul a neo-con?
You really have no place debating American politics if you think this is even remotely true.

If Dr. Paul is anything he's a constitutionalist...
One of the true remaining genuine politicians alive.
Many people are probably unaware who Ron was referring to when he said "they".

Even if FDR let Pearl Harbor happen, the Japanese empire was hell bent on attacking the USA. World police force or not, If Russia is hell bent on attacking the USA, the USA is going to get attack. Thinking isolation and a weak navy keep your country and Alies safe is a dim view.

While Ron Paul was spot on about the corruption of our intelligence agencies, foreign policy was never his expertise and that's why he's never been elected president.

To say that Syria was on the verge of breaking out in peace, is totally absurd. Islamic terrorists don't negotiate peace. Their whole motto is "resistance".

As for why the U.S. says that the Syrian government is to blame...

So? What did we gain by being isolationists?

I'd say being an isolationist is a recipe for disaster myself.

Congress is one body now, one party. They could stop this madness. But, I guess the lessons of Nam is it will take a lot more blood, like 55,000 or more.

"Lost Paradise", squandered our democracy by voting for a supreme court position only, not the kids or future. If congress does not save us from these mad men, our economy and people are going to get very,very, poor. With mass cuts to social programs planned. But, we are just yelling at the wind right now. If you pray, give it a try.

Where, show me where I suggested anything of the sort?

I know who Ron Paul is. Hell, he is one of only two real, dedicated, grass roots politics figures in American politics.

This is where we find out where Trump really stands. If it was a PR stunt, and a show of force to our adversaries, then it was a good move.
Trump is owned by the neo-cons now .If they want to impeach him they can easily make him out to be a war criminal . In other words ,to throw him under the bus if they decide to because he ordered the attack based on false information . he is toast any way you look at it ... he will keep filling the swamp and be a good little POTUS
Depends. If he acted on false info which sounds like he was fed quite a line by some advisors. I'd like to know who they were and if it was CIA intel

I agree with you on this and I'm generally pro Ron and Rand Paul. Isis has been in control. But Paul does have a point about the neocons controlling Trump. They've beat him down sane as Progressives.

On a side note. I just saw an article.

Sean Spicer claims even Hitler didn't use chemical weapons.

Have to agree with Ron Paul there. As horrid as the pictures of gassed Syrian children was, it's not a matter of national security.

Ron Paul was probably the last (long shot) hope for the future of America. Alas, we are in the decline, likely past the point of no return.

You're probably right.
I think Bernie was/is real.


While I do like Bernie, he isn't as aggressive, and doesn't think as large as Ron Paul.

Ron Paul wanted to go after far more broken facets than Bernie.

Peace creates compromise which weakens government power and increases the people's

I get it. However, while I like some statements by Ron Paul, many of his libertarian policies are frankly naive and not economically/socially viable.
