As a long-time Republican, I have become extremely disillusioned with the current state of the party. The Neo-Conservatives have ruined the party and helped to discredit America all over the world. Living abroad as I do, I often see the hypocrisy of the current administration (who doesnât?). I no longer consider myself a Republicanâbut I could never be a Democrat.
The war in Iraq is unjustifiable. Do 50% of Americans really still believe that Saddam Hussein had a part to play in September 11? After 4 years, the Republican presidential candidates are still talking about winning the war in Iraq. Except one.
Ron Paul is taking a lot of flak for speaking out about current foreign policy. Itâs refreshing to hear someone talking about the war for what it isâa failed foreign policy.
Ron Paul doesnât stand a chance of winning with the base of the party that votes in the primaries. Heâs very popular on the internet, but not in the polls. Still, itâs nice to hear him say the things that need to be said. When he drops out, it will be time to start looki:ng at the Democrats, unfortunately.
