Imagine - Ron Paul.
(Credit to EvilTeaBagger for showing me this video.)
My honest opinion? This is a much bigger issue right now than socialism vs. capitalism. I fear that Ron Paul would soon realize how much American capitalism depends on and forces the continuation of unnecessary war… but if he could do it, I would sooner have a president who ends this nonsense than a president who continues to police the world while pushing for a few socialist policies.
“At a time when $700 billion can be found overnight to bail out the richest bankers in the world and $1000 billion can be spent on one single “war,” when sovereign wealth funds in a few rich countries alone are at $2500 billion and growing, it stretches credulity when we are told that the world can’t find an extra $18 billion a year to save the lives of millions of children and women and meet the basic needs of the majority of the world’s population.”

Pretty fucking scary.
