* Ron Paul: We wondered aloud earlier today if the Texas Congressman might temper some of his national security/foreign policy views in an attempt to court the more mainstream part of the GOP. Nope! Paul’s views on domestic policy are largely in line with the rest of the candidates running for the Republican presidential nomination but on foreign policy he is an outlier. It showed tonight as Paul said we should leave Israel to fend for itself, called for disentangling ourselves from Afghanistan and even for an end to the war on drugs. Paul’s base undoubtedly ate up every word. But, tonight’s debate was a case study in just how hard it will be for Paul to be a genuine contender for the nomination.
* Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP): Gingrich said an EMP was the biggest threat to the country that no one was talking about. Doing a little reading on it, we can confirm it’s scary stuff. Heck, it stopped the machines in “The Matrix”. And it would apparently make Twitter inoperable. We shudder to think.

Ooooh the why is quite simple, he won't hesitate to single out the corrupted and pull the rug out from under the elitists and the cronies, which is the underlying force in every arena of American power (or illusion of), and basically what this country is built on now. This includes the entirety of the MSM, the white house, wall street, K street, lobbyists, the fed, and so on and on. Ron Paul is bad news for the entire Jenga tower of corruption and everyone's a part of it in some way or another!
Let the pieces tumble down down down i say!
