the same Big Government that (I beleive) killed John Lennon.
The Founding Fathers of the United States included a passage in the Constitution, which allowed for a solution to problems like the ones the US faced after the attacks on 9/11. Rather than invading multiple countries in search of a ragtag crew of air pirates, Letters of Marque and Reprisal would have allowed for the President to pursue the individuals responsible for the attack in a precise manner.
After the attacks on 9/11, Congressman Ron Paul introduced a bill in the Congress, which would have specified the scope for a mission to take down the terrorists responsible for the attacks on 9/11. First and foremost, the proposal was Constitutional and secondly, it was highly targeted and wouldn’t have resulted in thousands of Americans being killed senselessly. Had Congressman Ron Paul’s proposal for letters of Marque and Reprisal, HR 3076, been passed by the United States Congress in October of 2001, trillions of dollars and thousands of lives would not have been lost in the search for Osama bin Laden.
As early as 2007, Ron Paul predicted that Pakistan harbored Osama bin Laden and in a speech on the floor of Congress, stated,
The foolishness of our foreign policy has us spending money in Pakistan, a military dictatorship with nuclear weapons, which is harboring Osama Bin Laden. The irony that taxpayers are paying to help protect Osama Bin Laden is astounding.
It goes without saying that President Paul would have killed Osama bin Laden far quicker and with more finesse than both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Nothing wrong with cannabis. Maybe the world needs a bit more of it, in fact.

I'm going to laugh so hard when you get Ron Paul into office and he ends up being the anti-christ. He seems like the kind of guy everyone is falling for hook, line and sinker. Clearly not a one of you has learned ANYTHING from history past or present. POLITICIANS LIE to get into office and then do whatever they want. Wake up and smell the coffee.

Bold statement but I wonder...can it be done or is this another false promise just like any other president before him? I'll keep a close eye to this one. $&F

It's worth seeing if he will. What do we have to lose at this point?
Vote for Ron Paul so we can bring the troops home and smoke a joint with them.
