Even though I agreed with much of what Ron Paul had to say, all I could ever think is ‘this isn’t my guy’ for president -too odd a demeanor/un-electable- not to mention foreign policy positions that were appalling to a peace-through-strength Republican like myself, particularly statements made re. Iran and Israel.
But lo-and-behold, now we have fervent offspring Rand Paul who -while libertarian in his views- apparently saw wisdom in distancing himself from his father’s take re. the volatile Muddled East.. and that’s when I started listening to him.
Maybe I’ve changed in my hawkishness too- I’d rather have not been involved in Libya at all -don’t want to empower jihadists in Syria- and find it pointless to back wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that I supported all the way when we’re just going to hand them over to Iran or the Taliban at the end anyway………….
