Ron Paul on the Yellow Brick RoadSunday, December 25, 2011
Here is a story that was recently posted on Yahoo: “Ron Paul is a Dangerous Tin Man Who has No Heart.” The article is so boring that it wouldn’t be worth mentioning, except for this one quote:
As quoted by Real Clear Politics, Ron Paul believes that “all foreign aid is worthless.“
And…am I missing something here? All foreign aid is either money taken from hard-working Americans at gunpoint or a monetary production of the Federal Reserve that makes people poorer (most of them, unknowingly) in order to fund the global largesse. So, Ron Paul sees no value in the end product of foreign “aid” – funding military machines, underwriting foreign dictators and emperors, perpetuating endless wars, promoting civil unrest and race or religious wars, and subsidizing and escalating a hugely profitable and invincible corporate state. And plus, he thinks it is unconstitutional for the government to conduct limitless theft via political policy in order to fund these atrocities. But he’s heartless.
On the contrary, our dictators and armchair generals in Washington D.C. have heart. This is proof.
