    Wow, that was pretty painful to see Ron Paul attacked by those people for defending freedom of choice. His main argument is that the govt. should not be able to control what people put inside their bodies.

    Fast forward to 2008. I think Ron Paul has been vindicated. 20 years of the War on Drugs and no real progress in reducing drugs, with billions spent. The terrorists we fight around the globe (including the Taliban) are funded by illegal drugs. The War on Terror would probably be a lot easier if we legalized and they lost their revenue.

    Try going to youtube and watching some of his recent videos. They are much better. After all, he is Man of The Year in 2007, not 1988, right? Google him too–he says a lot of things that make a lot of sense.

    I am a career Naval officer who has always been politically neutral, but voting for Ron Paul is about voting for America and our Constitution, which I took an oath to preserve. Dr. Paul receives more money from the military than any other candidate, Republican or Democrat.

    The funny thing is that he embodies a true republican. The current republican party has been hijacked by dixiecrats such as Jesse Helms who was a democrat. Ron Paul and people like Colin Powell are the only real true republicans out there.

    From Wikipedia:
    The Dixiecrat party was a segregationist, populist, socially conservative splinter party of the Democratic Party in the mid-20th century who were determined to protect what they saw as the Southern “way of life” against what they perceived as an oppressive federal government.

    Notice the socially conservative splinter term and “way of life”. Sound familiar. It should. It is the basis of the “republican party” platform.
