I would also like to discuss several arguments of how illogical it is to vote for any of the other Republican candidates vs. Ron Paul in reference to
The Christian evangelical right supports Santorum, Romney, and Gingrich on their foreign policy positions. However, an evangelical Christian
naturally believes in the sanctity of life, the value of each human being individually as a child of God, in the right to life and/or redemption, and
in the idea of loving ones enemies. However, when someone like Gingrich stands before a crowd of religious individuals and states, "Andrew Jackson
knew how to treat his enemies........kill them!" they will cheer, smile broadly, throw their arms in the air, relish in the idea of the death of a
"heathen" or "enemy" and give a standing ovation. Yet, when Paul invokes the Golden Rule in how we treat other nations he receives "booooooooo"
from that very same crowd. This is inherently illogical and points to some serious issues with supposed belief vs. true belief. Many people have
incorporated war as a spectator sport, have chosen their team, and will be happy is the face of victory...........death...........innocent and dead
civilians. If one believes the war to be necessary and holds to the principles and values of "life" one should mourn the loss of any child of God,
including those of their enemies, who never experienced redemption, the Gospel, or love.
There are many other illogical inconsistencies that I could examine, but the knowledge that they are glaring and present is enough at this point.
