I really like Ron Paul, but I don't think he has any chance to be elected.
and I am really sorry about it.
so called "elections" are just entertainment, it is not important who votes,
but who counts the votes.
US Presidents are "optioned", not elected.
And the Rockefellers and their acolytes have already chosen the next US President.
Like it happened with Carter, in the 70's, or Clinton in the 90's, and everyone else, after Eisenhower, at least.
And do you think they have chosen Ron Paul??
and, anyway, US Presidents are just puppets, since after Eisenhower, they do not have any true power.
and they have just a middle grade Security Clearance.
US Presidents obey orders from well above, they just sign documents.
and they MUST obey.
Or they are executed.

If you think that's the case, and that "war" is the answer to your country's financial problems, well take a look at your "great nation"'s deficit.
Sure, it looks all well and good now, but it's like free spending on your credit card. You can buy all the nice items and enjoy them, but in a few years, it will catch up to you.
Sure, you could justify building weapons by being actively involved in a war... But those things cost money - money your country simply doesn't have.
I'll put it to you another way. It's called trial and error. If you think your country should maintain it's foreign policy, and "war machine" as you like to call it, just look at where it has gotten you. Take a look at your country right now. If you americans keep that mentality, it simply won't last. Something has to give.
I don't understand that term "great nation" that you americans use so often in regards to politics. I mean, sure it's a great nation of strength and values, but financially, economically, and logistically, it is anything but "great". (Right now, that is).
I think your country needs to find alternative ways to sustain itself. There isn't one solution to every problem.
Just so you know, i'm not even from your country, and this is how some of the people foreign to your country, feel about it.
Americans need to get this "war" mentality out of their heads. Many other nations achieve great stability through other ventures.
